icons disappear when setting guisetbkcolor

Recommended Posts


whenever i try to change the background to any color, the icons on my buttons dissappear *sigh*

i am trying to just change the bkcolor to the main gui - "dGUI"

GUISetBkColor($background_color, $dGUI)

any ideas?

Use GUICtrlSetColor for those controls where you want to change the font colour.

As the control IDs are just numbers, you could even use a For...Next loop if there are a lot and you want to use the same colour:

$Label_1 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel(......
$Label_n = GuiCtrlCreateLabel(......

For $i = $Label_1 To $Label_n
    GuiCtrlSetColor($i, Required_Colour)

Hope this helps,
