GUI Changes Needed


Recommended Posts

This is my theme support so far. Classic and M$ XP themes only

$colorname = RegRead('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager', 'ColorName')
$theme = RegRead('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager', 'ThemeActive')

Select; Theme Support
   Case $theme = '1'
   If $colorname = 'Metallic' Then  ;Metalic
      $color = 0xFCFCFE
   ElseIf $colorname = 'HomeStead' Then  ;Olive
      $color = 0xF7F6F3
   Else
      $color = 0xF7F6F3  ; Blue
   EndIf
   
   Case $theme = '0'  ; Classic
      $color = 0xD4D0C8
EndSelect

; Label Here
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $color)

But trying to mimic XP themes is bearable doing this. But the tab is lighter in color at the top and darker below.

True transparency with label etc backgrounds would be the fix?

your problem is not coming from the style but from the size of the tab.

try the following code which is correct and change size to 140 you will get the bad color

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
$size=160
GuiCreate("label on tab",$size,100)
GuiCtrlCreateTab(10,10,140,80)
GuiCtrlCreateTabItem("tab1")
GuiCtrlCreateLabel("text label", 60,60)
GuiCtrlCreateTabItem("tab2")
GuiCtrlCreateTabItem("tab3")
GuiSetState()

Do
$msg=GuiGetMsg()
until $msg=$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

I just downloaded the latest build of autoit and copied your build over the originals. But the controls background color is the same against the tabs. I want background color for controls transparent, if possible?  :)

Bad new that's the limit on what I can do to simultate the label transparency.

The problem come from the XP style theme(Luna) which is doing a color which vary from the top to the bottom of the windows. So no color can be choosen to set the label background color. :)

I hope one day somebody can explain how to have transparent control. Perhaps Valik or Jon ...

@jpm: did you studied a sample from here:

http://www.codeproject.com/staticctrl/transparentstatic.asp

Did you read my topic here for a possible solution?:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=5485

I did some things weeks ago with it and it works so far...

Regards :)

Holger

P.S:forgot: the tip with the site on Codeproject came from "this-is-me" :-)

I didn't . It looks great.

Why are you saying a possible solution?

What are the problem which can be encountered with this code? :)

Hey, I was just thinking... If the background of a static control can be removed, then the same thing could be done for a button, right? If so, someone could put a colored lable with no text behind a transparent button thereby making a fake colored button.

Who else would I be?

The same could be said for text edits and inputs and stuff as well. Unfortunately I guess you still couldn't change the text color of them. I wish you could. I wish the GUI stuff was as flexible as HTML + CSS can be.
