Is it possible to change color on my gui's border?

Recommended Posts

Lets say I create a gui like this:

GUICreate("TEST", 320, 240, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_SIZEBOX, $WS_POPUP))
GUISetBkColor(0x000000)

You will get a black gui with a whitish/greyish border (atleast on WinXP) around the gui for the "sizebox" and that doesn't look very good, is it possible to change the borders color to black somehow??

MrCreatoR wrote a udf, (I think it's in example scripts,) for resizing controls and I have copied his idea and changed it to use it for resizing a popup window which doesn't have the sizing borders. My udf needs modifying a bit because it has some code which is only useful for my script and I haven't got time to look at it now. If no-one provides a solution to your problem you are welcome to have my version but it won't be until tomorrow. Edited by martin

Hi! Try this:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Global Const $PS_SOLID = 0

$hGUI = GUICreate("TEST", 320, 240, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_POPUP, $WS_SIZEBOX))
GUISetBkColor(0x000000)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NCPAINT, "WM_NCPAINT")

GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

Func WM_NCPAINT($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $hDC, $hPen, $OldPen, $OldBrush, $aHwndPos
    
    $hDC = _WinAPI_GetWindowDC($hWnd)
    
    $hPen = DllCall("gdi32.dll", "hwnd", "CreatePen", "int", $PS_SOLID, "int", 5, "int", 0x0000FF)
    $hPen = $hPen[0]
    
    $OldPen = _WinAPI_SelectObject($hDC, $hPen)
    $OldBrush = _WinAPI_SelectObject($hDC, _WinAPI_GetStockObject($NULL_BRUSH))
    
    $aHwndPos = WinGetPos($hWnd)
    
    DllCall("gdi32.dll", "int", "Rectangle", "hwnd", $hDC, "int", 1, "int", 1, "int", $aHwndPos[2], "int", $aHwndPos[3])
    
    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hDC, $OldBrush)
    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hDC, $OldPen)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hPen)
    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC($hWnd, $hDC)
    
    Return True
EndFunc
