Button Color effecting text alignment

9 posts in this topic

Cant see whats wrong here but as soon as you set the color of the button the styles are ignored and text is placed at the top of the button.

Im probably using the wrong command to change color but tried it with built in code designer to make sure.

Any ideas?

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

GUICreate("My GUI Button")
$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Notepad", 10, 30, 100,100,$BS_BOTTOM)
$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button Test", 10, 140, 100,100,$BS_BOTTOM)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00ff00)
GUISetState() 
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSelect
    WEnd

not found anything on search.

Datus,

There are several bugs affecting coloured buttons - for example, there has been an open Trac ticket on them trapping Enter for about a year.

Best to avoid them if you can. :-)

ive used a label instead.

still doesnt give exaclty the control i wanted but better than the button in present form.

wish they would spend some more time sorting out gui controls and settings rather than adding even more complicated functions.

spend more time trying work arrounds than coding these days. :)

But still i love Autoit and wouldnt be without it.

i never use buttons anymore... labels are so much more customizable... i even use labels for my exit buttons and minimize buttons.. labels can be used for everything (that i know of) that a button can be used for

Perhaps this is really not a bug, but feature elements in Windows, because the button is created on the basis of a certain style (picture).

I don't think you can with a style, but you could arrange it by adding empty lines.

GUICreate("label text")
GUICtrlCreateLabel(@CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & "   bottom",20,20,100,100)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x006666)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xFFFFFF)
GUISetState()

while GUIGetMsg() <> -3
    
WEnd

It depends on why you want it and what you want to do with the label though.

that fine if you know what your going to put in the label.

however i read a file with film names in which can be multiple words etc.

just as my example code shows at the start.
