Multiline Coloured Buttons?

Recommended Posts


Hi, There is probably a really obvious answer, but I can't find it :)

Basically, using GUICtrlCreateButton($apps[$x],50+$lft*100,50+$top*50,90,40,$BS_MULTILINE) will work and display the text on two lines ($lft and $top are defined). But when I use GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x808080) this effect stops.

What am I doing wrong?

For me, this sounds like a bug.

But you could try combinations with other styles, perhaps $BS_FLAT together with $BS_MULTILINE will work.

Morning both,

This has been discussed before and there is a solution here. Looks as if you will need to play with $apps[$x] if you want this to work.

You do realise that colouring a button makes it trap the Enter key, I trust? It is a known bug (Ticket 376) and is still open. So think carefully before doing so.

Sory for the late reply, thanks to both for the help, but I think i'll stick with just the multiline.
