#481 closed Feature Request (Completed)

Add margin parameter to SplashTextOn

Reported by: dlpirl Owned by: Valik
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


Text in SplashTextOn looks bad because it is too close to the Window border. With considerable programing effort, I believe I could do what I want by using GUICreate()and GUICtrlCreateLabel() instead, but since IMHO SplashTextOn is bad out of the box, the change should be made directly there.

One uniform top, bottom, left, and right margin in pixels would be fine. Using 'en' units would be even better, so the padding could vary with font size.

Well, technically you can just resize the static control used in SplashTextOn to sit where you want inside the window (ControlMove()). However, I will adjust AutoIt to use the Vista-recommended margin of 11 pixels all the way around.
