in reply to WIN32::GUI label font/color

Not very elegant, but it works. The basic idea is to simply replace the label by creating a new one with the same name. To avoid artifacts, you can hide the original first.

#!/usr/bin/winperl use warnings; use strict; use Win32::GUI; my $w = Win32::GUI::Window->new( -title => "Win32::GUI::Label test", -left => 100, -top => 100, -width => 100, -height => 100, -name => "Window", ); my $font = 0; my @fonts = ( Win32::GUI::Font->new( -name => 'Arial', -size => 14, -bold => 1, ), Win32::GUI::Font->new( -name => 'Arial', -size => 14, -italic => 1, ), ); my @colors = ([0, 0, 0], [255, 0, 0]); my @label_data = ( -name => "Label", -left => 30, -top => 10, -text => "Test", ); my $l = $w->AddLabel( @label_data, -font => $fonts[$font], -foreground => $colors[$font], ); $w->AddButton( -name => 'Button', -text => 'Change Font', -left => 10, -top => 45, ); $w->Show(); Win32::GUI::Dialog(); sub Window_Terminate { return -1; } sub Button_Click { $font = ($font+1) % @fonts; $l->Hide(); $l = $w->AddLabel( @label_data, -font => $fonts[$font], -foreground => $colors[$font], ); }

The basic idea came from the How-To.

    At least changing the color (example to Red) can (now) be achieved with similar logic to: labelobject->Change(-foreground => 255,0,0); labelobject->Redraw(1); and labelobject is Win32::GUI label.
