Buttons, how to remove the border?

Recommended Posts

mattfaust

I have been trying to make a interface for a while now.

I can make the buttons, and I can make them work. I can not make them look 1/2 way decent

I would like to use a icon but I cant figure out how to make the background of the button transparent.

So I decided just to use a image that would blend in with the window, But I get this ugly ring around the image from the buttons border.

How can I remove this?

CODE
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

if you mean the dotted line around a selected button, I don't think that's changeable.

try an imagelist for your buttons

have a look at this post:

Button with BMP and Text

#572734

your example with a bitmap and icon button

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
