Change color of disabled controls...?

7 posts in this topic

Hi!

Is it possible to change color of disabled controls?

Therefore you have to overwrite the Windows color/theme settings, right?

When disabling a control, it is typically greyed out.

I need a way to define the greyed-out-color by RGB.

Somebody any idea?

Greets,

-supersonic.

Try GUICtrlSetBkColor and GUICtrlSetColor

supersonic,

GUICtrlSetBackColor does work on disabled controls, although GUICtrlSetColor appears not to:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            GUICtrlSetState($hButton, $GUI_DISABLE)
            Sleep(1000)
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($hButton, 0x00FF00); works
            GUICtrlSetColor($hButton, 0x00FFFF) ; does not work
    EndSwitch

WEnd

You are right. But I have no luck with ListViews...

Code sample:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$hLV = GUICtrlCreateListView("test", 100, 100, 100, 100)
$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 10, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            GUICtrlSetState($hButton, $GUI_DISABLE)
            Sleep(1000)
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($hButton, 0x00FF00); works
            GUICtrlSetColor($hButton, 0x00FFFF)    ; does not work

            GUICtrlSetState($hLV, $GUI_DISABLE)
            Sleep(1000)
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($hLV, 0x00FF00); works
            GUICtrlSetColor($hLV, 0x00FFFF)    ; does not work
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Thank you for the link. In fact, it works... Although it's too much code for this purpose, but I will give it a try...
