ummm... why not just make the gui a tool window style, and make it the size of the picture and make the picture the size of the whole GUI and then just put controls on top...

Functions Needed (main ones at least):


GUICtrlCreateButton (whatever controls u want)


post if u need help :lmao:

Do a winset trans before guisetstate

Im in a rush and dont have the correct syntax with me but here a basic example fo what you need to do.

$trans = 150

$gui = Guicreate
winsettrans ($gui, $trans)

If you still cant get it working, ill post real code when I get home.

I think he's looking to have the GUI have regions of transparency, like a mask, like what Winamp can do, which unfortunately, is not available.

If however, you want the whole GUI to be evenly partially transparent, then, like Nova pointed out, WinSetTrans() is the function to use.

Some actual working code (not to be offensive):

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
$gui = GuiCreate('Window')
WinSetTrans($gui, '', 128)
     $m = GuiGetMsg()

if you mean a background pic you have to make it before everything else and disable it like this

$background = GUICtrlCreatePic( "background.bmp", 0, 0, window's width,window's height)

GUICtrlSetState($background, 128)

Or if you give it a style of 0 (zero) it will act the same as being disabled. Like in the script that I linked to.

GuiCtrlCreatePic('default.gif', 0, 0, 275, 116, 0)

Xenogis: you should really use the GUI constants for things like GuiCtrlSetState. It makes for more readable code.

GuiCtrlSetState($background, $GUI_DISABLE)

Not many people know what "128" by itself does. o:)

Also, I think he's looking more for something like this:

Note: That's a Winamp 5 skin. Definitely not AutoIt, just so I don't get any requests for my "special version of AutoIt that does transparent windows" :lmao:

Unfortunately my main experience in programming is in Visual Basic 6.0 (cruddy if I've ever seen it). I am working my way slowly into c++, so I may be able to come up with something in the future. If you have Windows 2000/XP only, this becomes much easier since there is an API call (something like SetLayeredWindowAttributes or something) that will do this for you (maybe even using DllCall).

Who else would I be?
