#2823 closed Bug (Completed)

_ChooseFont default color

Reported by: careca777 Owned by: Melba23
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


It says the default color is in RGB format, but it's BGR Color.
Following example shows this, select marron color, RGB 0x800000,
This RGB result is used in the next _ChooseFont which should open with the same color, but doesn't, it opens with navy blue, which is RGB 0x000080 OR BGR 0x800000!

All there is to do is change in the help file parameter:
"$iColorRef [optional] COLORREF rgbColors" to BRG colors, or fix the parameter to accept RGB.

#include <Misc.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $a_font = _ChooseFont("Arial", 8)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Hex BGR Color: " & $a_font[6] & @CRLF & "Hex RGB Color: " & $a_font[7])
$ChosenColor = $a_font[7]
Local $a_font = _ChooseFont("Arial", 8, $ChosenColor)

The UDF function has been modified to convert the $iColorRef parameter from RGB to BGR so the Help file is now correct.

The fix applied did work for the input, but that was not the whole problem. The help states that element 5 of the return array is "COLORREF rgbColors". The value returned is actually BRG. Here is a suggested new line shown below in it's placement just before the last line:

	$iColorRef = BitOR(BitShift(BitAND($iColorRef, 0x000000FF), -16), BitAND($iColorRef, 0x0000FF00), BitShift(BitAND($iColorRef, 0x00FF0000), 16))
	Return StringSplit($iAttributes & "," & $sFaceName & "," & $iSize & "," & $iWeight & "," & $iColorRef & "," & '0x' & $sColor_picked & "," & '0x' & StringMid($sColor_picked, 5, 2) & StringMid($sColor_picked, 3, 2) & StringMid($sColor_picked, 1, 2), ",")

Also, the tag structure should be changed to reflect "bgrColors" instead of "rgbColors". Of course, this change will not affect operation. However, it will help avoid confusion when reading the code.
