Background and foreground in an Input field

5 posts in this topic

How do I change the background color and the character color in an input field?

The example below doesn't work.

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("prompt", 20, 100, 270, 25)
GUISetBkColor(0x0000ff,$Input1)

GUICreate("test")
GUICtrlCreateInput("", 100, 100)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xffff00)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xff00ff)

GUISetState()

Sleep(5000)

Thank you Pain, that works perfectly.

The reason I could not solve the problem myself is because the helpfile shows:

GUISetBkColor ( background [, winhandle] )

so I thought I had to use the background first, then the winhandle! Perhaps a Help-bug? :)

GUISetBkColor and GUICtrlSetBkColor are different functions :)

Oh, you are right, ProgAndy!

Another question: can I remove the frame around the input field? Or at least give the frame another color?
