How can I Set Focus to an input box?

Recommended Posts

Genos

Yeah, I'm not having any luck finding information on setting the focus. All I need it to put the cursor into the top input box of my form after I submit the data.

I know there has to be something simple out there, but I can't find it >_<

I am not able to figure out how to use _WinAPI_SetFocus to set focus to my inputbox >_<

_WinAPI_SetFocus($txtQuestion)

Doesn't set focus to my input box.

Genos,

You need the handle, not the ControlID:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <WinAPI.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 400, 20)

GUICtrlCreateButton("Test", 10, 100, 80, 30)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_FOCUS)

GUISetState()

Sleep(5000)

_WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Test", "", $hInput))

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd
