9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i am having a problem with _WinAPI_DrawText when using it

with the DC of a Layered Window _WinAPI_UpdateLayeredWindow

with it can be clicked through it even if i changed the Text Color with

_WinAPI_SetTextColor

here's an example ( this is not my code it just shows my probelm )

#NoTrayIcon
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <TransWinAPI.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>
#include <FontConstants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global Const $DT_END_ELLIPSIS = 32768
$hWnd = GUICreate("",-1,-1,-1,-1,-1,$WS_EX_LAYERED)
_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hWnd, 0)
GUISetState()
$hDC = _WinAPI_GetDC($hWnd)
$tRect = DllStructCreate($tagRECT)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 1, 43)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 2, 20)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 3, 125)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 4, 100)
_WinAPI_DrawText($hDC,"aaaa", $tRect, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS) ;try to move the window
Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

If you set the text colour to be the transparent colour then you will be able to see the window behind your window and if you click on a transparent area you will be clicking on the window behind. If you don't want that to happen you would need to have some way to make the text not completely transparent. What i sthe effect you want to achieve?

Why do you use a layered GUI, when you don't need it? To have solid black text, set the transparent color for the layered window to another color than black.

i am using a layered GUI to be able to use _WinAPI_UpdateLayeredWindow

so i can't use _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes to set the transperent

color to another color than black , i tried to set the text color to another color

but it just stays transparent .

Does it work, if you use WinSetTrans instead of _WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes

or using

_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hWnd,0,255,0x2)?

Here is an example showing solid coloured text, and moving the text with the arrow keys.

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

Local $sText = " ABC123 " & @LF & " DEF123 " & @LF & " GHI12A "

Local $hWnd = GUICreate("Use Up, Down, Left, Right Arrows", 400, 400, -1, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST, $WS_EX_LAYERED))
;GUISetBkColor("0x" & Hex(-1, 6)) ; All color channels full = (Hex -1) = 0xFFFFFF=White.
_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($hWnd, 0xFFFFFF) ; 0xFFFFFF=White

; or

;Local $hWnd = GUICreate("Use Up, Down, Left, Right Arrows", 400,400, -1, -1) ;

GUISetState()
$hDC = _WinAPI_GetDC($hWnd)
$tRect = DllStructCreate($tagRECT)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 1, 43)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 2, 20)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 3, 125)
DllStructSetData($tRect, 4, 63) ; 68) ;
_WinAPI_SetTextColor($hDC, 0x0000FF) ; 0x0000FF=Red (Color format is hex 0xBBGGRR - 3 color channels Blue, Green, and Red); No colors, 0, or 0x000000=Black

_WinAPI_DrawText($hDC, $sText, $tRect, BitOR($DT_CENTER, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS))

    Select
        Case _IsPressed("28") ;Down

                DllStructSetData($tRect, 2, DllStructGetData($tRect, 2) + 1)
                DllStructSetData($tRect, 4, DllStructGetData($tRect, 4) + 1)
                _WinAPI_DrawText($hDC, $sText, $tRect, BitOR($DT_CENTER, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS)) ;
            EndIf
        Case _IsPressed("26") ; Up
            If DllStructGetData($tRect, 2) > 0 Then
                _WinAPI_RedrawWindow($hWnd, $tRect, "", $RDW_INVALIDATE)

                DllStructSetData($tRect, 4, DllStructGetData($tRect, 4) - 1)
                _WinAPI_DrawText($hDC, $sText, $tRect, BitOR($DT_CENTER, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS))
            EndIf
        Case _IsPressed("27") ; To right
            If DllStructGetData($tRect, 3) < 400 + 15 Then
                _WinAPI_RedrawWindow($hWnd, $tRect, "", $RDW_INVALIDATE)
                DllStructSetData($tRect, 1, DllStructGetData($tRect, 1) + 1)
                DllStructSetData($tRect, 3, DllStructGetData($tRect, 3) + 1)
                _WinAPI_DrawText($hDC, $sText, $tRect, BitOR($DT_CENTER, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS))

                DllStructSetData($tRect, 3, DllStructGetData($tRect, 3) - 1)
                _WinAPI_DrawText($hDC, $sText, $tRect, BitOR($DT_CENTER, $DT_END_ELLIPSIS))
            EndIf
    EndSelect
