Quick question (I hope)...

8 posts in this topic

Can AutoIt flip the cursor from the arrow to the hourglass and back again? I've been wandering though the Help file, the Auto3Lib includes, and this website, looking for examples.

Have you looked at GuiSetCursor and GuiCtrlSetCursor in the help?

I was under the impression those were strictly for use in custom GUI's, and could not be applied to outside objects.

make a full screen Fully transparent GUI

Sounds intriguing. Being of limited experience (intelligence, too, or so I've been told...), do you have an example of code I could look at?

#include <guiconstants.au3>
$gui = GUICreate ("", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0 , "", $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)

Heres a full size transparent window.

I couldn't get it to work. This is what I put in the script:

CODE

Func Locate_Control_On_Window($sWndTitle, $sCTitle)

; Focus on the requested panel...

WinWait($sWndTitle, "")

WinActivate($sWndTitle, "")

;Define a full-size transparent window, so that the wait cursor can be employed during this operation...

$gui = GUICreate ("", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0 , "", $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)

Local $nArrowCursor = "2"

Local $nWaitCursor = "15"

GUISetCursor ($nWaitCursor, 1, $gui)

[......imbedded logic......]

; Restore the normal arrow cursor and delete the full-size transparent window...

GUISetCursor ($nArrowCursor, 1, $gui)

GUIDelete ($gui)

Return $aCCInfo

EndFunc

Am I missing something here? :)
