How can I make a backgroundless Label?

6 posts in this topic

I've been trying to get rid of the background of a label but with no success...

You know, GuiCtrlGreateLabel()....

I tried the transperent thing, $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT, but the label completely disappeared!!

Any help will be appreciated :P

GUICtrlSetBkColor the label to the same color as the GUI.

I'm confused :P ...

by default labels take on the background colour of the main Gui.

So they should always appear "backgroundless".

@Derak, post the code you're having trouble with

GUICtrlSetBkColor(controlID,$GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)

I've just came in...

@ Tomb616

The default bk color of the label is the same default color of the Gui

@ ResNullius

This the code I'm having troubles with :

GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Hello" , 76, 416, 42, 17, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetBkColor( -1, 0xFFFFFF )
GUICtrlSetState( -1, $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)

GUICtrlSetBkColor(controlID,$GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT)

You wouldn't need the GUICtrlSetBkColor(controlID,$GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT) if you hadn't used the GUICtrlSetBkColor( -1, 0xFFFFFF ) !

First you've set the label's background colour with GUICtrlSetBkColor( -1, 0xFFFFFF ), then you immediately make it transparent!

What's the point of setting a colour in the first place?

And if you hadn't, your label would have been "backgroundless" as I said in my first post.

The only time the GUICtrlSetBkColor(controlID,$GUI_BKCOLOR_TRANSPARENT) would be needed is if your going to change the background colour of your whole Gui after it first appears, or if you have a picture as the background of your Gui.
