Function Reference


_GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText

Sets the text limit

#include <GuiEdit.au3>
_GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText ( $hWnd, $iLimit )

Parameters

$hWnd Control ID/Handle to the control
$iLimit The maximum number of TCHARs the user can enter

Return Value

None.

Remarks

The _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText() function limits only the text the user can enter.
It does not affect any text already in the edit control when the message is sent, nor does it affect the length of the text copied to the edit control by the _GUICtrlEdit_SetText() function.
If an application uses the _GUICtrlEdit_SetText() function to place more text into an edit control than is specified in the _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText() function, the user can edit the entire contents of the edit control.
