How do I draw a thin horizontal line

4 posts in this topic

I want a simple window with two 'status' labels seperated by a thin line

$hWnd   = GUICreate ($program, 390, 94, -1, -1)
$label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Initialising", 12, 13, 380)
$group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup ("", 4, 37, 378, 8)
$label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel ("Reading INI file - " & $iniFile, 12, 60, 380)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

By experimentation I found that a group box, with no text, of height 8 worked on my OS and screen resolution but doesn't on other machines. I had expected that maybe a group box with height 0 or 1 might work, but 0 thru 7 didn't but surprisingly 8 did. I realise that this can't be the right way to do it. Sorry if it's obvious, I've searched the help and the forums.

Thanks guys, both these 'work' on my machine

GUICtrlCreateGraphic(5,25,390,2,$SS_SUNKEN)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("",5,25,390,2,$SS_SUNKEN)

From a purists point of view which is the right way of producing a thin, sunken horizontal line like Windows apps have above and below the menus?
