[Gui] 100% Transparent background and 50% transparent picture

05 Apr 2020, 12:00

Hello,

I created an Image which has transparent background.
It gets shown in a GUI and only the image is visible, which is correct (no grey background).

Is it also possible that this image is like 50% transparent?
Gui background should still be 100% transparent.

Code: Select all

F1::
Gui, Tr: Color, feffff ; Color which should be removed later
Gui, Tr: +LastFound +AlwaysOnTop -Caption +ToolWindow +E0x20 ; ..., ..., No title, no icon, user can click through it
Gui, Tr: Add, Picture, x0 y0 w1280 h1024, Transparentes Bild.png ; An image which has transparent background
Gui, Tr: Show, x0 y0 w1280 h1024 NA, GuiTransparent ; Shows gui with unique name, without activating it
WinSet, TransColor, feffff ; Removes specified color
return
Attached how it is and I how it should be.

P.S. The blue color hexcode is 3359CB according to Window Spy.

Thanks for any help and best regards!

Thank you, Hellbent!
I believe I tried that, but probably I made some mistake.
Basically changing
WinSet, TransColor, feffff
to
WinSet, TransColor, feffff 126
already did the job.
The rest remained the same.


P.S. 2 more posts... ;)

Cheers!

No problem.

For better results, you may want to look at using a layered window. Winset, Transcolor can cause some issues with gradient antialiased edges on rounded corners. Anyway, just something to consider.
