Make a window turn greyscale

6 posts in this topic

Hey,

I am just wandering how I would go about making a window turn Grey.. Well, my GUI that is. I need the GUI to turn Grey but so you still see the things and a message box to stay in colour, which is then created after the grey has been done.

If you need more info then please ask.

Thanks,

Secure

Hi,

you mean something like :

#include <prospeed.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
$r = GUICreate("My GUI", 400, 200, 300, 300)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
$b = GUICtrlCreateButton("close", 10, 10, 100, 30)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)       

WinSetOnTop("My GUI", "", 1)
; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $b Then
        $gui = _GreyBackground(0, 1, 0)
        Sleep(500)
        Exit (0)
    EndIf
WEnd

Func _GreyBackground($iBlur = 0, $iFade = 0, $onTop = 1)
    ;ControlFocus("Program Manager", "", "SysListView321")
    ScreenShot (@ScriptDir & "\Desktop.jpg", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0, 1)
    Local $iGui = GUICreate("Prospeed", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0, -2147483648, 128);$WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW
    If $onTop Then WinSetOnTop($iGui, "", 1)
    WinSetTrans($iGui, "", 1)
    GUISetState()
    $dsktop = LoadImage (@ScriptDir & "\Desktop.jpg", 0, 0, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0)
    Grey ($dsktop, 0, 0, 1)
    If $iFade Then
        For $i = 1 To 255 Step 5
            WinSetTrans($iGui, "", $i)
        Next
        WinSetTrans($iGui, "", 255)
    Else
        WinSetTrans($iGui, "", 255)
    EndIf

    If $iBlur Then blur ($dsktop, 0, 0, 30, 1)
    Return $iGui
EndFunc   ;==>_GreyBackground

???

So long,

dont know if this is what you want (you said gray SCALE so i dont think it is) but here you go:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI", 400, 200, 300, 300)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
$graybutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("gray", 10, 10, 100, 30)
$background = GUISetBkColor(0xff00cc)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)    

While 1
    $m = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $m = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $m = $graybutton
            $background = GUISetBkColor(0x666666)
    EndSelect
WEnd

Hi,

sure. All you have to do is take the screenshot from the coordinates of you gui. Put the screenshot above the gui and then fade it to grey.

You mean like the Vista 'allow security access' screen?

You're not trying to fool anyone into giving your skript extra access, are you? :whistle:
