Hi,

I want to develop a screen saver which shows a certain text on a certain day. Is this possible in autoit? And are there any examples? And how can I create a GUI over the task bar, which covers the whole screen? Thanks in advance Johannes

OK, it is solved. To used as screen saver. Compiled to exe and rename it to "yxz.scr" than move it to the same directory as the other screen savers Johannes

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
;first edition of an screen saver
$font='Arial'
$textcolor = 0xff0000

GUICreate('', -1, -1, 0, 0, BitOr($WS_POPUP, $WS_MAXIMIZE))
; paradies.jpg exists under W2K, XP has other filenames, the directory is the same 
$pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic(@WindowsDir & '\Web\Wallpaper\paradies.jpg', 0, 0, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight)
$label1=GUICtrlCreateLabel ('This is only a sample of a text for a screen saver', 10, 80, @DesktopWidth -20, @DesktopHeight-180, $SS_CENTERIMAGE )
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)
GUICtrlSetColor ( -1, $textcolor)   


GUICtrlSetFont (-1, 36,  400, 1, $font)
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)   

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop

I could be wrong, but I think you just change the extention from .EXE to .SCR
