unset guictrlsetbkcolor

5 posts in this topic

I have searched all over and I can't seem a way to undo a GUICtrlSetBkColor for a progress bar I am making. If I could do this without creating the control again I would be very happy.

I'm assuming you're using Window Classic Style...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ProgressConstants.au3>

Local $progressbar1, $progressbar2, $button, $wait, $s, $msg, $m

GUICreate("My GUI Progressbar", 220, 100, 100, 200)
$progressbar1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 32250); not working with Windows XP Style
$progressbar2 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(10, 40, 200, 20, $PBS_SMOOTH)
$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 75, 70, 70, 20)
GUISetState()

GUICtrlSetBkColor ($progressbar1, "0xFFFF00")
MsgBox (0, "", "")
GUICtrlSetBkColor ($progressbar1, "0xC0C0C0")

Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

ahh yes, thank you. I was looking at a whole long list of colors and couldn't find a matching one.

PortalDeamon000,

You can use _WinAPI_GetSysColor($COLOR_WINDOW) to get the default value for the GUI background. Then use GUICtrlSetBkColor with that value.

Might come in handy if you come across someone who has changed the colour from the MS preset value.

I used the AU3Info tool in SciTE under Tools, it'll give you the color code for where your mouse is.
