Description (last modified by mLipok)

Uncommenting GUICtrlSetColor creates a bug where interacting with the input, also causes the button function to be executed

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 200, 100)
$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 10, 10, 160, 24)
;GUICtrlSetColor($hButton, 0xFF0000)
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 40, 60, 24)
GUISetState()

While 1
   Switch GUIGetMsg()
          Case $hButton
                 ConsoleWrite("Button" & @CR)
          Case $hInput
                 ConsoleWrite("Input" & @CR)
          Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                 Exit
   EndSwitch
WEnd

There is a bug in my code. Please change
GUICtrlSetColor($hConnectionButton, 0xFF0000)
to
GUICtrlSetColor($hButton, 0xFF0000)

I updated the code in the original post but don't understand what your issues is you are trying to report here. I have the impression the code works the same with or without that line?
Or do you mean when you type something in the input field and hit enter after which both events fire?

It seems that the GUICTRLSetColor() also sets the focus to the button.
This works fine:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 200, 100)
$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button", 10, 10, 160, 24)
GUICtrlSetColor($hButton, 0xFF0000)
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 40, 60, 24)
GUICtrlSetState($hInput, $GUI_FOCUS)
GUISetState()
While 1
	Switch GUIGetMsg()
		Case $hButton
			ConsoleWrite("Button" & @CR)
		Case $hInput
			ConsoleWrite("Input" & @CR)
		Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
			Exit
	EndSwitch
WEnd

Not sure whether this is intended or a bug.

  • Resolution set to Wont Fix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is a known bug with colouring buttons - see https://www.autoitscript.com/trac/autoit/ticket/376

As you can see it cannot/will not be fixed, so I suggest not colouring your buttons.
