Questions about modifying the look of the grid
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:21:05 PM »
I have been playing with GridMoveP1.ahk. I have made the grid a nice gray blue and the text gray with the black shadows.

Questions:
1 - Your text looks so crisp. My text has a yellow-gold pixel around it. The pixel looks like the same color that you had for your text. I don't know what to do to get rid of the yellow-gold pixel and make my text crisp looking like yours.

2 - How do you set the color of the transparent window that shows the grid shape when the cursor is over the trigger? I've been studying a little AutoHotKey, but I haven't been able to see where that is done.

Thanks

Hi,

1- On line 618, I insert the text. The command used is
Gui, add, text, BackgroundTrans cFFD300, TEXT HERE
That should do it, right?

2- Line 712 changes this color, you just need to change the color to anything else;)
This should work:
Gui, 2:color, FFFF00

Thank you very much.

I went through GridMoveP1.ahk and substituted 999999 for FFD300 in 13 instances (everywhere I could find), and my text still had the yellow-gold fringes. I guess it might be some artifact from my laptop's screen. I might go back to your original color.

That worked great! I used a dark blue and changed the transparency down to 70. I like the look a lot.

Thanks for the help!

1 - actually, now that you mention it, I think I had a similar problem, and that was the reason I went with red. Not sure, though..
