Spy doesn't see splash windows?

Recommended Posts

I couldn't remember what the control of the spash window is, to use ControlSetText with, so I figured I'd just spy on it. No dice. the spy just shows the info of the window below it. I don't get it.

while 1
   SplashTextOn("test", "what control am I?") 
   sleep(25*1000)

if I put the mouse over the title bar, it shows the control being "AutoIt v31" with the text being "test" but when I put the mouse over the text of the splash window, it just shows whatever is behind the window...

Edit; an aside:

Even better is to use ControlSetText to update text without flicker...

if that's prefered, wouldn't it be great to have an example of that in the helpfile, either for ControlSetText or SplashTextOn? Edited by emmanuel

shouldn't that kind of info be in the helpfile for the splashes, and probably any other gui elements in autoit? who updates the helpfile?

Example

SplashTextOn("Title", "Message goes here.", -1, -1, -1, -1, 4, "", 24)

Sleep(3000)

SplashOff()

;; FLICKER

$message = ""

SplashTextOn("TitleFoo", $message, -1, -1, -1, -1, 4, "")

For $x = 1 to 20

    $message = $message & $x & @LF

    SplashTextOn("TitleFoo", $message, -1, -1, -1, -1, 4, "")

    Sleep(100)

Next

;; SMOOTH

$message = ""

SplashTextOn("TitleFoo", $message, -1, -1, -1, -1, 4, "")

For $x = 1 to 20

    $message = $message & $x & @LF

    ControlSetText("TitleFoo", "", "Static1", $message)

    sleep(100)

Next

and so, I bow down before thee, elder gods of autoit.

It was right where I had the helpfile open to even.
