setCtrlData for labels keep blinking if in a loop, where it's still the same characters not changed.And this makes my application so amateur (I'm Amateur but hiding the fact)

any way around that please advice.

Don't know what your loop looks like, but I would do a check to see if the label data needs to be changed and only set the data then, otherwise skip to the next label.

Hi! To avoid from control flickering:

1. Use ControlSetText() function instead of GUICtrlSetData() function.

2. Before control text update compare current control text and new text, which you set of a control, and if this both text is different - update your control.

P.S.

Hope you understand my bad english :)

can u show it with an example simple GUI and Label viewing percent and some text and a progress bar

It's up to the person with the problem to put in at least as much effort as those who are willing to help. IMO you should be able to give a sample of your problem or we could be wasting our time trying to fix the wrong thing. If you think it's simple for someone else to make a sample solution then it must also be simple for you to make a sample problem.

I cant't see blinking in v. 3.2.12.0

But I can't read the decimal place, because it changes too fast. So you could do checking for No decimal places and only update then:

If IsInt($i/5) Then ControlSetText("My GUI","",5,"The Current Percent is "&$i/5)

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI") 

$start_btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start",10,10,50,30)

$progress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10,50,150,30,$PBS_SMOOTH )

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Percent: ", 10, 90, 45, 20)

$PercentLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("100", 55, 90, 40, 20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $start_btn
            For $i = 1 to 500
                GUICtrlSetData($progress, $i / 500 * 100)
                ControlSetText("My GUI", "", $PercentLabel, Int($i / 5))
                Sleep(10)
            Next
    EndSwitch
WEnd
