Icon in input

4 posts in this topic

Hey, I need a way to put an icon inside an input control (or make it look that way). The best example i have is a favicon (look next to the www in the URL bar of the internet browser you're in). Actually, I'd prefer it to be a combo, but whatever. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe a workaround?

Thanks

Hi,

Maybe try this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$Gui = GuiCreate("Test")

GUICtrlCreateInput("", 45, 40, 200)

GUICtrlCreateLabel(" ", 15, 40, 30, 20, $SS_SUNKEN)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlCreateIcon("shell32.dll", 15, 22, 42, 16, 16)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case Else
            
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Yeah, that's what I'm doing now... But I would really like it inside... Is there any way to make the input or combo not have ANY border? Because then I could put both in a sunken style label...

Oh! I got it! It's an Exstyle... $WS_EX_TOOLwindow... Cool. Thanks for your help though.

This is what I was after:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$Gui = GuiCreate("Test", 260, 100)



GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 15, 39, 230, 20, $SS_SUNKEN)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
GUICtrlCreateIcon("shell32.dll", 15, 18, 41, 16, 16)
GUICtrlCreateInput("", 45, 42, 190, 14, -1, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case Else
           
    EndSwitch
WEnd
