Recommended Posts

Use the Gui features in the unstable version. If you download it, there is an extensive help file to give you the info you need. You may also try SplashTextOn.

Who else would I be?

Creates a customizable text popup window.

SplashTextOn ( "title", "text" [, w [, h [, x pos [, y pos [, opt [, "fontname" [, "fontsz" [, "fontwt"]]]]]]]] )


title --Title for splash window.

text --Text for splash window.

w --Optional width of window in pixels. (default 500)

h --Optional height of window in pixels. (default 400)

x --pos Optional position from left (in pixels) of splash window. (default is centered)

y --pos Optional position from top (in pixels) of splash window. (default is centered)

opt --additional options: (add them up - default is 'center justified/always on top/with title')

0 = Center justified/always on top/with title (default)

1 = Thin bordered titleless window

2 = Without "always on top" attribute

4 = Left justified text

8 = Right justified text

16 = Windows can be moved

fontname --Optional font to use. (OS default GUI font is used if the font is "" or is not found)

fontsz --Optional font size. (default is 12; standard sizes are 6 8 9 10 11 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 36 48 72)

fontwt --Optional font weight (0 - 1000, default = 400 = normal). A value > 1000 is treated as zero.

Return Value



To skip an optional parameter, leaving it's default value intact, use:

"" for a string parameters

-1 for a numeric parameters

Only one SplashImage/Text window is allowed at one time; so if you wish to cycle through multiple images/text, simply call SplashImageOn/SplashTextOn again with the new information.

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

Standard font names include:

Arial, Comic Sans MS, Courier New, Lucida Console, Microsoft Sans Serif, System, Tahoma, Times New Roman, and WingDings

See Appendix for a complete font list

$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, "")




$message = ""

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