The other day on the main AutoHotkey Facebook group I saw a question about refreshing a GUI every 30 seconds. I remembered, quite a few years ago, Maestrith showed HellBent and I how to use an ActiveX GUI to drastically increase the performance of a script which was drawing thousands of images on the screen. With some creative searching I was able to find the video. Unfortunately the audio quality is poor. I tried cleaning it up a bit but I believe what Maestrith teaches is well worth the painful sound. Just keep in mind this was all done on the fly. Maestrith and I were on Hangouts and HellBent joined us with the question so excuse the lack of being prepared but I think showing how Maestrith works through things is great for us mortals.
The Magic of ActiveX and AutoHotkey
In this video I show how to use the GDIP library to create a 10X10 pixel. This is where the video starts. I wanted to make sure we had a simple way to generate a 10×10 bmp file.
