Animated Gif, with no GUI


Recommended Posts

Well, I know how to use Animated Gif's in my GUI's, but I don't want the user to be able to see the GUI, like loading screens.

I have this function, which is what I want, to hide the GUI, but keep the controls, it works without the Gif, but, not with it.

Func HideGUIDisplayCtrls($hWnd)
    GUISetStyle(0x80000000, 0x00000080+0x00000008, $hWnd)
    Local $sClassList = WinGetClassList($hWnd)
    Local $aClassList = StringSplit($sClassList, @LF)
    Local $sRetClassList = "", $sHold_List = "|"
    Local $aiInHold, $iInHold
    Local $aClassList, $aM_Mask, $aCtrlPos, $aMask
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aClassList) - 1
        If $aClassList[$i] = "" Then ContinueLoop
        If StringRegExp($sHold_List, "\|" & $aClassList[$i] & "~(\d+)\|") Then
            $aiInHold = StringRegExp($sHold_List, ".*\|" & $aClassList[$i] & "~(\d)+\|.*", 1)
            $iInHold = Number($aiInHold[UBound($aiInHold)-1])
            If $iInHold = 0 Then $iInHold += 1
            $aClassList[$i] &= "~" & $iInHold + 1
            $sHold_List &= $aClassList[$i] & "|"
            $sRetClassList &= $aClassList[$i] & @LF
            $aClassList[$i] &= "~1"
            $sHold_List &= $aClassList[$i] & "|"
            $sRetClassList &= $aClassList[$i] & @LF
    Local $Info = StringReplace(StringStripWS($sRetClassList, 3), "~", "")
    $aClassList = StringSplit($Info, @LF)
    $aM_Mask = DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CreateRectRgn", "long", 0, "long", 0, "long", 0, "long", 0)
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aClassList) - 1
        $aCtrlPos = ControlGetPos($hWnd, '', $aClassList[$i])
        If Not IsArray($aCtrlPos) Then ContinueLoop
        $aMask = DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CreateRectRgn", _
            "long", $aCtrlPos[0], _
            "long", $aCtrlPos[1], _
            "long", $aCtrlPos[0] + $aCtrlPos[2], _
            "long", $aCtrlPos[1] + $aCtrlPos[3])
        DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CombineRgn", "long", $aM_Mask[0], "long", $aMask[0], "long", $aM_Mask[0], "int", 2)
    DllCall("user32.dll", "long", "SetWindowRgn", "hwnd", $hWnd, "long", $aM_Mask[0], "int", 1)

All I want the user to see is the Gif spinning...I have uploaded the Loading.gif I want to use :P

Well you have to make the GIF transparent and the GUI layered :P

Made a test, but could flicker ( had to change sth in my GifAni UDF )

The example is in ZIP.

It flickers, and also when it rotates, you can see little white marks coming from the sides. I'm tring to make this look professional, but I'll play around with it.

It looks great on a white background.

I have a idea. I could get a .gif unpacker, that will take all the photos out of the .gif, and then I could use them, and then use GUICtrlCreatePic :P Heh. That might work.
