GuiCtrlCreatePic(), _GDI+, InireadSection()

Recommended Posts


For around an hour, I've tried to get my slideshow to work. Everything else works but creating the slideshow image. I've tried every combination I could think of to get the code to work. The image just doesn't display. Here is my redroducer:

#Include <GDIPlus.au3>
#Include <GUIConstants.au3>

;SYNTAX OF THE INI FILE:                     ;;;
;                                            ;;;
; [Picture Names and Paths]                  ;;;
; PictureName.jpg=ANY FULL PATH TO A PICTURE ;;;

$Ini = @ScriptDir&"\Pictures.ini"
IniWrite($Ini, "Picture Names and Paths", "Merlin.gif", @SystemDir&"\oobe\images\merlin.gif")

$ReadPicturePaths = IniReadSection($Ini, "Picture Names and Paths")
$SlideshowGUI = GUICreate("", @DesktopWidth + 100, @DesktopHeight + 100, -1 , -1, $WS_POPUP)
$Image = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ReadPicturePaths[1][1])
$SlideshowPicture = GUICtrlCreatePic($ReadPicturePaths[1][1], 100, 100, _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($Image)/3, _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($Image)/3)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $SlideshowGUI)
While 1

When you _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile, GDI+ locks the image file, so GUICtrlCreatePic() fails.

Do _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($Image) before trying to show image with GUICtrlCreatePic/GUICtrlSetImage, or draw pic using GDI functions and do not use these AutoIt functions at all.
