Transparent checkboxes, and combo box troubles

3 posts in this topic

I just started working with GUIs, and am having a bit of trouble. I want my checkboxes to be transparent as I have an image as the background. I searched the forums for an answer, but most threads relating to transparent checkboxes just sorta trailed off. Is an OwnerDrawn checkbox the only solution? One guy said he used GUICtrlSetBkColor($checkboxid, 0x00000020), but that did not work. I also tried using GUICtrlSetBkColor($checkboxid, -2), like I would for a label, with no success....

My second question is about combo boxes and my background image. My background image is set up as such:

$background = GUICtrlCreatePic("AU3-2.bmp", 0, 0, 450, 400)
GUICtrlSetState($background, $GUI_DISABLE)

The boxes work fine if I remove the background image, but when I have the image in use, the boxes aren't at "the front"....and if they are, they look odd (no border or dropdown arrow). Advice?

Thanks.

Ah, it was the width and height on the checkbox create that can get rid of that, thanks :whistle:
