Some people can look forward to solve this problem.

Wow. I can't believe it. I seriously thought of using this exact method to make controls on the screen when thinking about AnyGUI. :) This is like the second time someone took my idea out of my brain in the past 24 hours (The first time was I was thinking about Non-Newtonian fluids, and then our Home Economics teacher randomly decided we would make some :P )

Nice work though. I like it :)

EDIT: This one was mine :)

#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
$sButton = _GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 100, 50, 100, 50, -1, -1, " - SciTE")
Do
    Sleep(20)
Until GUIGetMsg() = $sButton

Func _GUICtrlCreateButton($sText, $nWidth = -1, $nHeight = -1, $nX = -1, $nY = -1, $sStyle = "", $sExStyle = "", $hParent = "")
    If Not IsDeclared($WS_POPUP) Then
        Local Const $WS_POPUP = 0x80000000
    EndIf
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Button1", $nWidth, $nHeight, $nX, $nY, $WS_POPUP, "")
    $hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton($sText, 0, 0, $nWidth, $nHeight, $sStyle, $sExStyle)
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetParent", "hwnd", $hGUI, "hwnd", WinGetHandle($hParent))

Have to say i like this! Great control over where I can put things, and what they can do; i can now, using some of my other software for support, tell clients where they SHOULD be clicking if necessary, it rocks.

One thing tho; is it possible for the animations not to animate spaces? It just detracts from the flow of the animation. For example, let's say you are doing a shockwave animation. And you have a few words for text "Click Here Please", the shockwave would process 'click', 'here', and 'please' just fine, but would also try and animate the spaces as well, which literally makes looking at the other text 2x the $wait time.

Can that be adapted out?

Very Awesome! Excellent work!

I do agree with zackrspv that it would be cool if it didn't do the effects on spaces

Also, some comment function headings in standard UDF format so we didn't have to guess-and-check would be awesome! :)

Only 2 complaints i have!

Excellent!!!

Thanks Guys!!! I mean everybody!!!

I Have an Idea on how to fix the space/s problem, however I would love to hear others because I am looking at a heavy re-write to do it... :)

Paulie, The _FreeText_Functions() shows a list of All functions and their individual use/call parameters.

I know I should, and may have a look at Smoke_N's new Function header proggy!.. a little later because everything is in process right now... and mostly I am grabbing the ideas in my head and running with them first..Thx

Not much I can do about the Chinese, sorry... :)

Small update.....

; ver 1.0.1

; Added - _FreeText_GetPosition

; Added - _FreeText_Scatter **** Gotta Love This One!!! ********

; Added - _FreeText_SetParent

; Added - _FreeText_SetPosition

; Added - "Return" to all Functions

working on _FreeText_Slider()

ENJOY!

i think the simpilist, and that's pretty relative there lol, way to accomplish the space problem is to detect when a space is to be called and then merge it with the next letter in the sequence. If multiple spaces, then multiple merges. Ie: "Call me Please" can turn into 'call' ' me' and ' please' this way the m and the p, for example, appear at the same time as the space. TBH not sure else how to do it, as you have to keep the original position of the space in tact :)

does "EVERYTHING" you have say 2.0.0 at the top????

I re-downloaded your FreeText.au3 and placed it in Includes folder... then copied and pasted your newest demo script and saved it as test.au3 on the desktop and there's 11 missing functions -- if I comment out those offending functions I can get the script to run, but it's not nearly as functional as you intended.

*** EDIT *** I should clarify, it's the horse race script that I am having errors with. ***
