Extract contents of GUICtrlCreateInput

6 posts in this topic

$AddName = GUICtrlCreateInput(" ", 90, 74, 150, 20)

I have the above line in my script. When I use MSGBOX to look at what $AddName contains, it shows "8" - The ControlID. How do I get the Human input from within the GUICtrlCreateInput?

Regards

RTFM - For the user who posted this - I always RTFM before posting!!!! Any that is why people who have issues with certain things do post items for help.

In GUICtrlRead

Return Value

Input, Edit The text entered

There's also example scripts in the manual for both GUICtrlCreateInput and GUICtrlRead, thats why he posted RTFM.

$text = GUICtrlRead(ControlID)
