Title: Draw Text with Button To show & Remove
Post by: hfheatherfox07 on August 18, 2012, 05:20:11 PM
Hi
I am Trying To draw Text with show text and Remove Text Buttons ...I am using a thread instead of invoking the proc and no timer

It is not working  :( any ideas ?

Thank you!

ARG!!!!

What is the handle of the drawn text ???
I thought of drawing it out than use "INVOKE ShowWindow ,hText,SW_HIDE"
and toggle between show and hide Buttons

EDIT:
I am trying to draw this without a static!!! how do I go about doing it this way?

I can’t see any point to using a timer or a thread, so I created a simple MASM32 In Memory dialog example that draws text on the client are of the dialog window.

Here is another version of that , using CreateFontIndirect


I just have to figure out how to have the  WM_PAINT in it's own separate  proc......
I am already using WM_PAINT for something else so I need a separate proc
Title: Re: Draw Text with Button To show & Remove
Post by: hfheatherfox07 on August 20, 2012, 02:30:20 PM
OK ...
Here is a version with a Proc ....

Why am I losing the text when I minimize ...Not catching it now :(

if you want to modify Michael's code to use a seperate proc for WM_PAINT...
Code: [Select]
wmPaint PROTO :HWND
;
;
;
        CASE WM_PAINT

            invoke wmPaint, hwndDlg
;
;
;
wmPaint PROC hWnd:HWND

    LOCAL ps:PAINTSTRUCT

    invoke BeginPaint, hWnd, ADDR ps
    invoke SetTextColor, ps.hdc, 000000ffh
    invoke SelectObject, ps.hdc, hFont
    push eax
    .IF fShow
        invoke SetBkMode, ps.hdc, TRANSPARENT
        invoke TextOut, ps.hdc, 42, 50, ADDR str1, SIZEOF str1 - 1
    .ENDIF
    pop eax
    invoke SelectObject, ps.hdc, eax
    invoke EndPaint, hWnd, ADDR ps
    ret

wmPaint ENDP
notice that you no longer need the local PAINTSTRUCT in DlgProc

if you want to change to a different proc, use a dword variable to hold the address of wmPaint

That Worked  Great!!!!
 :greenclp:


I uploaded a copy of a working example in case any body ever runs into this....

P.S
Also removed the bad attachments ...I noticed when hutch collected all the attachments from the old forum to archive ....the examples that are not working got also posted ...people who download those would think they are good examples   

 
Here is a Good example .....Thank You dedndave!!!! :t
Title: Re: Draw Text with Button To show & Remove
Post by: hfheatherfox07 on August 22, 2012, 06:34:14 PM
OK ....
I decided to swap out one of the buttons to draw other text instead of just removing it ......

Why am I losing the 2nd text after it is drawn ?

i am not sure exactly what you are trying to do - lol
i guess it's hard to describe, sometimes

i think you want to try...
Code: [Select]
        INVOKE  SetBkMode,hdc,TRANSPARENTbefore drawing the text

What I am trying to do is instead of just removing the text with button 2 I figure draw another text  :biggrin:
i think you want to try...
Code: [Select]
        INVOKE  SetBkMode,hdc,TRANSPARENTbefore drawing the text

Were ?
All that does is remove the transparent back ground ?

I have tried numerous other (Combining the two in one Draw Text proc but could not do it ) ways but no success  :(

Post by: hfheatherfox07 on August 23, 2012, 04:37:29 AM
I know the problem is with WM_PAINT ...
I need to be able to initiate both drawtext procs there is that possible?

 :dazzled:

Solved  :greenclp:

MichaelW was right about Drawing  both from The WM_PAINT handler   :icon_redface:

I Got hung up with this proc thing .......  :icon_redface:

In general, everything that is supposed to show in the client area of the window must be redrawn on each WM_PAINT cycle. The controls in the client area, other than owner-draw controls, will normally be redrawn automatically and this is one of the advantages of using controls. In this case you are drawing directly on the client area of the window, and because one of the first steps in repainting the client area is to erase the background, for what you draw to stay visible you must redraw it on each  cycle.

Note that I added the WS_CLIPCHILDREN style to the dialog so the buttons would be excluded from the background erase, as otherwise the frequent redraws would make them flicker.

Am I Blind or all that this Does (From a colour point of view) is flash 3 colours ?
