Change background colour

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

Is there any way in AutoIT3 that I can remove the background wallpaper and replace it with a fixed colour?

I know how to change the background picture - but can't seem to switch it off.

In GUI?

Ummm, I dont understand. I've written a GUI tool to allow users to choose a background from a pre-determined folder (using a system tray dynamic menu). I'd like to avoid using the GD addon, so i'm currently using this function to change the wallpaper (modified from an example I saw on here earlier)....

Func _ChangeWallpaper($bmpfile, $iposition = "3")
    Switch $iPosition
        Case 1; Tile
            RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'TileWallpaper', 'reg_sz', '1')
            RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'WallpaperStyle', 'reg_sz', '0')
        Case 2; Center
            RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'TileWallpaper', 'reg_sz', '0')
            RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'WallpaperStyle', 'reg_sz', '0')
        Case 3; Stretch
            RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'TileWallpaper', 'reg_sz', '0')
            RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'WallpaperStyle', 'reg_sz', '2')
    EndSwitch
    RegWrite('HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop', 'Wallpaper', 'reg_sz', $bmpfile)
    DllCall("user32", "int", "SystemParametersInfo", "int", 20, "int", 0, "str", $bmpfile, "int", 0)
EndFunc

This works perfectly, but I also want to offer the choice to have just a plain coloured background - so what im looking to do is to switch off the wallpaper and choose a background colour.

Set the wallpaper to an empty string. In 'HKCU\Control Panel\Colors set Background to the RGB colour you want.
