Checkbox Text doesn't Wrap?!?

Recommended Posts

Floppy

Hi, I created this simple script...but there's a problem: the text doesn't wrap. Why?

#include <GuiConstants.au3>  $main_gui=GUICreate('test',500,500)  GUICtrlCreateCheckbox('Accetto il contratto di licenza e i termini del servizio di ciascun sito (visitare ciascun sito per conoscere il contratto di licenza e i termini del servizio',10,140,480,40) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$main_gui)  While 1    $m=GUIGetMsg()  Select  Case $m=$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE        Exit    EndSelect WEnd

FSoft,

Just use a separate label:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
$main_gui=GUICreate('Test',500,500)
GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("",10,140,20,20)
$sMsg = "Accetto il contratto di licenza e i termini del servizio di ciascun sito (visitare ciascun sito per conoscere il contratto di licenza e i termini del servizio)"
GUICtrlCreateLabel($sMsg, 40, 140, 460, 40)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$main_gui)
While 1
    $m=GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $m=$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSelect
WEnd

When you create the textbox, you must set a flag to allow multiline. Try this:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$main_gui=GUICreate('test',500,500)  
GUICtrlCreateCheckbox('Accetto il contratto di licenza e i termini del servizio di ciascun sito (visitare ciascun sito per conoscere il contratto di licenza e i termini del servizio',10,140,480,40,BitOR($BS_CHECKBOX,$BS_AUTOCHECKBOX,$BS_MULTILINE,$WS_TABSTOP)) 
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$main_gui)  
While 1    
$m=GUIGetMsg()  
Select  
Case $m=$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE     
Exit    
EndSelect 
WEnd

The $BS_MULTILINE flag is what allows multiple lines.

Also, you may want to check out the Koda GUI Designer for autoit here: http://koda.darkhost.ru/page.php?id=download. It's helped me a lot with these type of things!

Thanks, it works. But in the Help I can't find anywhere that GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox can be used with $BS_MULTILINE.

@ M23: Thanks, but I want to create a checkbox with built-in text.

After a quick glance at the help file, I didn't see it in there either. I actually just looked at the options that Koda gave me for checkboxes, and the multiline option was one of them. >_<
