NEW VERSION: 17 Jun 2013 Ever wondered how to avoid input being so painful? You can type a lot of errors in a GUICtrlCreateInput, for example alphanumeric where you want only numbers and decimals, typing 10 characters where you only want 9, etc. Input masks can make your life easier and Validation can be as simple as this: GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Input Decimal(8,2)", 10, 110, 200, 15) $MyInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("",210,110,110,20) _Inputmask_add($MyInput, $iIM_INTEGER, 0, "", 8, 2) It requires only one additional line per input The UDFexample script demonstrates 13 dynamic input validations. A lot more validations can be made. Up to you to be inventive. _inputmask 126.96.36.199.zip Enhanced: Better input control - The previous versions worked well with blank fields but editing non-blank inputs was really a pain. Now the cursor remains where the edit is occurring. Once the max width is reached, no additional characters can be added. - Added beep on invalid entry. In fact I use soundplay instead of beep because beep gives a cracking sound result on my laptop. You can set beep off (put Global $bBeep = False anywhere in your script) If you prefer a true beep, you can beep it on in line 150. Minor issue: - decimal Numbers after the '.' scroll away when inserting until it bumps to the max allowed decimals. I didn't fix that yet, I don't know how to solve this ... Examples: Example 1 _inputmask - example.au3 (see zip file) Example 2: _Inputmask combining two WM_COMMAND handlers (see zip file) Thanks to Melba23 for his explanation how to combine GUIRegisterMsg WM_COMMAND handlers) If you create your own input mask that could be useful for the AutoIt community, please let me know, I will be glad to add it to the above example.
