Ctrls with CreateWindowEx

Recommended Posts

The following code creates a child static window using CreateWindowEx

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("CreateWindowEx childs", 300, 100)
GuiSetBkColor(0xa0c0e0)

$style = BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_BORDER, $WS_VISIBLE)
$ex_style = 0
$x=10
$y=10
$width=250
$height=20

; Create a child static window

$l_hwnd = DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "CreateWindowEx", "long", $ex_style, _
        "str", 'STATIC', "str", 'Static ctrl with CreateWindowEx', _
        "long", $style, "long", $x, "long", $y, "long", $width, "long", $height, _
        "hwnd", $Form1, "long", 0, "hwnd", 0, "long", 0)
        
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Exit
EndSwitch
WEnd

When compiled with 3.2.2.0 autoit the Static control is transparent.

but with 3.2.5.6 version the Static control uses the original GUI color as backgound.

The same happens for the WC_LINK class (hyperlink) controls that are the controls I am mainly interested in.

Is there any way to have this old behaviour back?
