Coloring group box lines to set color

Recommended Posts


Is there anyway to specify a color for the lines in my group? I'm asking this because people who run different themes, the group lines might show up a different color and I want it to be a set color.

You assume we know what you are talking about with your question, and have failed miserably to supply any code to go off of for any type of help anyway (and or your attempts of hunting down the answer yourself and attempted code).

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I dunno how to colour the lines, but maybe this is a start:

Global $GUI = GUICreate("my GUI")
Global $group = GUICtrlCreateGroup(" This is a group", 40, 40, 300, 300)
GUICtrlSetColor($group, 0xff0000)


$group = GUICtrlCreateGroup(" This is a group with bk color", 40, 40, 300, 300)
GUICtrlSetColor($group, 0x0ff)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($group, 0xff0000)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = -3 Then Exit

Func XPStyle($OnOff = 1)
    Local $XS_n
    If $OnOff And StringInStr(@OSTYPE, "WIN32_NT") Then
        $XS_n = DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "int", "GetThemeAppProperties")
        DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", 0)
        Return 1
    ElseIf StringInStr(@OSTYPE, "WIN32_NT") And IsArray($XS_n) Then
        DllCall("uxtheme.dll", "none", "SetThemeAppProperties", "int", $XS_n[0])
        $XS_n = ""
        Return 1
    Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>XPStyle
