If Input box is field in?

9 posts in this topic

Hello, i have been using the forum a lot to make my script and so made an account.

Anyway, My Question is this.

Is there a function that will either give 0 or 1 to a inputbox/variable if it has characters/numbers in?

Is there a way to do it. Thanks in advance. :D

Cracked It! :D

For people wondering it is this.

$inputbox = GuiCtrlCreateInput("")
$userinput = GUICtrlRead ($inputbox)

if $userinput = "" Then
    MsgBox(0,"Error", "Please Enter Something!")
Else
DO something else!
EndIF

You said characters/numbers in it?  :D

The question should be "check if inputbox/variable is empty or not?"

Your question is unclear.

Edit:typo

You can force the InputBox function to require input using the Mandatory flag.

$sInput = InputBox("Enter a sentence.", "Testing", "", " M")
If @Error = 1 Then
   ; Cancel button was pressed.  By having the " M" flag at the end, you can not press the Ok button if there is no text.
Else
   ; At least one character is present in the variable.
Endif

If you want to check if any text is in a string, can use a comparison.

If $sCheck > "" Then
   ; You got stuff in it
Else
   ; It is empty.
EndIf

Edit: Simplified the second code block. That's what I get for coding when tired.

BTW,

Based on my understanding on your original question,I used this to check if the inputbox/variable has characters/numbers in it.

MsgBox(0,'',GUICtrlRead(StringIsInt($userinput)))

A colleague of mine who is not very javascript or for that matter jQuery aware asked me to help him to do a little trick with jQuery. He needed to select the contents of the input box when user selects it (when onfocus event is fired basically).

Ok!! So what has this got to do with this thread or with this forum or with AutoIT?

Notice that this jerk has been blocked. It is because he was off-topic (and more) on all his posts. Valik trimmed down his posts so they were only off-topic. Ignore him. Edited by Nutster
