GUI ignoring user imput

chmod777

Basically I need to teach people how to do a particular thing in a program. I want something that will tell them what they should do next (i.e. what to click, etc.) but won't interact with their mouse. That means they can click a window underneath the message.

Right now I use this script:

SplashTextOn("What to do next", "<------ This is what you should click now!", $right-$left, $bottom-$top, $left, $top, 1)
WinSetTrans("What to do next", "", 150)

Particularly I say what to do next myself. If the user doesn't success in a given time a new window appears that repeats what I said. In another minute a new window shows what to click. In another minute the script sends me a message that user #xx failed.

The problem is I cannot explain this way 2 different buttons. So I need a transparent window (like this SplashTextOn) that I can use to show something. But the user has to be able to click something underneath this window.

Hope it's clear. Thanks for any ideas.

Here is a simple way to make a gui and set all the controls visible and the background transparent by MsCreator.

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.
