#2299 closed Bug (Fixed)

GUI Button Text Left-Justify Bug

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: GUI Button Left Justify Cc:


When left-justify button text formatting is set, it changes text color and background to black/white. If either text color or background is set after left-justify, the justify changes to centered. This problem exists in both v3.3.8.1 and v3.3.9.5 (beta).

BTW, thanks for providing this great utility.

The attached file illustrates the left-justify problem.

After upgrading my scripts from to it appears that center justification of native buttons has been broken. I guess most likely by the fix for this issue at milestone

The permutations of: default color settings; alignment at creation; style changes; and color changes effect the issue in different ways, and differently now compared to

I have attached a new script (ButtonTextJustify2.au3) that shows the permutations and indicates which permutations have issues.

To try to summarized the issues:-

1) If default colours are used; OR the colours are changed after button creation or style change then:-

a) On and center justification is shown as left, and right as center
b) On left and right were shown as center

2) If style is set/changed when set default colours used, or after colours have been set, then colour settings are lost but justification is correct/fixed.

This second issue was also in the original bug report but seems unaltered by the last bug fix.
(Note also:- Strangely after loosing set default colours with a style change, setting just the background colour restores the foreground colour as well, as can be seen in the last set of examples).

For the first issue, I wonder if AutoIt's code is being confused by the fact that BS_CENTER = BITOR(BS_LEFT, BS_RIGHT) so you can't just do simple bit tests but need to do:

If BitAnd (style, $BS_CENTER) = $BS_LEFT
If BitAnd (style, $BS_CENTER) = $BS_CENTER
If BitAnd (style, $BS_CENTER) = $BS_RIGHT

(I'm sure the above logic is absolutely obvious to you, but is easily overlooked if not thinking of the actual value of the bits)
