Hi,

had a short try just yet. Nice work, but some little things to change:

_FreeText_Create

  • bkcolor should be GUISetBkColor(_GetColorByName($Color))
  • Do you mean $Wieght or $Weight ???
  • There should be a parameter to size the GUIs that you can display somethig like this:
  • $TextGUI = _FreeText_Create("Valuater - reading all this would be fine!",0, 10, 40, "red", "Arial", 100)
_GetColorByName($name)

could be done this way:

Func _GetColorByName($name)    
    Switch $name
        Case "black"
            Return "0x000000"
        Case "white"
            Return "0xffffff"
        Case "red"
            Return "0xff0000"
        Case "blue"
            Return "0x0000ff"
        Case "green"
            Return "0x00ff00"
        Case "yellow"
            Return "0xffff00"
        Case "violet"
            Return "0xAE7BE1"
        Case "win_xp_bg"
            Return "0xECE9D8"
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_GetColorByName

_FreeText_ColorStrobe

  • _ArrayAdd($colors, $Color_Hold) is not needed, right? --> Array.au3 not needed.
([

+> $ANSI_CHARSET > FontConstants.au3

+> $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS > WindowsConstants.au3

are already defined and could be used from those includes. Just a thought.

Thanks for this. I just started using AutoIt at the end of August - I love it. It's given me so much control over the Windows Desktop - Now I can write code almost as well as I can on Mainframe computers...maybe better.

...I need to look up things in Help a lot, but that's how to learn.

Thanks.

Welcome... Hope You Enjoy Autoit

Hi...

Can I Add FreeText on my Gui..?

I means Instead Of Label..Instead of simple label i use marquee or anyother style.. =O :)

My example gives an option for a background and if you look at the functions in FreeText.au3 you will see this..

Func _FreeText_SetParent($T_GUI, $h_parent, $delay = 50)
    If Not IsArray($T_GUI) Then Return 0
    Local $opt = Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2), $ret = 1
    If Not IsHWnd($h_parent) Then $h_parent = WinGetHandle($h_parent)
    For $x = 1 To UBound($T_GUI) - 1
        $ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "SetParent", "hwnd", $T_GUI[$x][0], "hwnd", $h_parent)
        Sleep($delay)
    Next
    If $ret <> 0 Then Return SetError(1, Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", $opt), 1)
    Return SetError(0, Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", $opt), 0)
EndFunc   ;==>_FreeText_SetParent

I have not tested it very much... no guarantees

i have little problems with my Script:

CODE
Func Sprinten()

$TextGUI = _FreeText_Create("Sprint")

_FreeText_SetColor($TextGUI, "Red")

$a=1

$Sprinten=NOT $Sprinten

While $Sprinten

Send("{# down}")

WEnd

Send("{# up}")

_FreeText_Delete($TextGui)

EndFunc

the Script should hold down # until the hotkey is pressed again, without implementing the FreeTextCreate Code it works as it should, it sends to the active Window "#######################....."

i found out, that FreeText takes the Focus on the active Window, so i have to refocus this - problem is, it seems, that if i have a 3d appikation running, it "tabs me out" of this to the desktop

how can i handle this situation to stay within the d3d applikation ?

how can i handle this situation to stay within the d3d applikation ?

There's been a few attempts to do this in the past with AutoHotKey, but as far as I know, putting text on a direct3d screen would require injecting into a dll. There are libraries out there that let you do this, but they aren't specifically for AutoIT.

There's a share piece of software called "Game Overlay" that does this as well, but it costs $25 and I'm not sure on the quality of it or if it even works right.

Here's some other posts on this topic:
