Adding Controls to topmost layer

Recommended Posts


So this is going to be my gui, but I can't seem to add controls such as tabs or buttons. When I try to add a control after line 60 (or anywhere) it doesn't show on the GUI. I've tried $ws_ex_topmost and looking in koda to order my layers.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>; this is where the magic happens, people
Global $aSquere = 0
Global Const $AC_SRC_ALPHA = 1
;~ Global Const $ULW_ALPHA         = 2
Global $old_string = "", $runthis = ""
Global $launchDir = @DesktopDir
FileInstall("C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My Pictures\test.gif",@HomeDrive&"/test0.gif")
FileInstall("C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My Pictures\test2.gif",@HomeDrive&"/test2.gif")

$Alpha = InputBox("Skin", "Please enter Either 1(Green Skin) or 2(Black Skin)",1,"", 340, 120)

if $Alpha == 1 then 
    $X = @HomeDrive&"/test0.gif"

if $Alpha == 2 then 
    $X = @HomeDrive&"/test2.gif"

; Load PNG file as GDI bitmap
$pngSrc = $x
$hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($pngSrc)

; Extract image width and height from PNG
$width = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage)
$height = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage)

; Create layered window
$GUI = GUICreate("test", $width, $height, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_LAYERED)
SetBitmap($GUI, $hImage, 0)

; Register notification messages
WinSetOnTop($GUI, "", 1)
;fade in png background
For $i = 0 To 130 Step 1
    SetBitmap($GUI, $hImage, $i)

; create child MDI gui window to hold controls
; this part could use some work - there is some flicker sometimes...
$controlGui = GUICreate("ControlGUI", $width, $height, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_MDICHILD), $GUI)

; child window transparency is required to accomplish the full effect, so $WS_EX_LAYERED above, and
; I think the way this works is the transparent window color is based on the image you set here:
GUICtrlCreatePic(@HomeDrive& "\Windows\System\grey.gif", 0, 0, $width, $height)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
