_GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hEdit, $iPos, $iPos)
_GUICtrlEdit_Scroll($hEdit, $SB_SCROLLCARET)

Thanks for the replay but this functions do not move the caret to

a line and column, they move the caret by caracter index.

Any other ideas??

Thanks for the replay but this functions do not move the caret to a line and column, they move the caret by caracter index.

Are you sure? You may use any text in the Edit control as one "string". I suggest you try it.

$Line1 & @CRLF & $Line2 & @CRLF & ...

Determine where the row and column it is not too difficult.

EDIT:

#Include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#Include <GUIEdit.au3>
#Include <ScrollBarConstants.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$sFile = RegRead('HKLM\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt', 'InstallDir') & '\include\changelog.txt'
    
GUICreate('MyGUI', 400, 300)
$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit('', 2, 2, 394, 268, BitOR($ES_WANTRETURN, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUISetState()

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($hEdit, FileRead($sFile))
_GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hEdit, 2217, 2217)
_GUICtrlEdit_Scroll($hEdit, $SB_SCROLLCARET)

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Thanks again

maybe I'm not making myself clear, I want to move the caret

to line 20 and column 5 for instance, on an equally spaced font.

how do I translate this into a number of characters since different lines have different amount of characters?.

your example adds all characters per line until it reaches 2217 then moves the caret there.

What I really want is to move the caret to a specific line and a specific column in autoit editor.

Any help is appreciated.

I see people very lazy. :)

OK

#Include <GUIEdit.au3>
#Include <ScrollBarConstants.au3>
#Include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$sFile = RegRead('HKLM\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt', 'InstallDir') & '\Include\ChangeLog.txt'

GUICreate('MyGUI', 400, 300)
$Edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit('', 10, 10, 380, 280, BitOR($ES_WANTRETURN, $WS_VSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL))
GUISetState()

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($Edit, FileRead($sFile))
_GUICtrlEdit_SetPos($Edit, 37, 10)

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

Thanks Yashied

I just saw your response because I was busy trying to solve the problem and since I only need

to goto line in SciTE, I came out with this (see below)

It works in any resolution, zoom and window size and position (at least so far)

I haven't try yours yet, but I'm almost sure it will work (not sure it will work in Scite).

I really appreciate your help.

By the way, you guys in Moscow need a lesson or two in English because I'm sure

you meant "busy" instead of "lazy" :)

local $Line = 20

_move_caret_SciTE($Line)

Func _move_caret_SciTE($moveL)

Local $L1, $L2, $Ydiff, $yMove

Opt("CaretCoordMode", 2)

ControlSend("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]", "", "Scintilla1", "^{home}")

$L1 = WinGetCaretPos()

ControlSend("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]", "", "Scintilla1", "{down}")

$L2 = WinGetCaretPos()

$Ydiff = ($L2[1] - $L1[1])

$yMove = ($moveL - 1) * $Ydiff

Sleep(300)

ControlClick("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]", "", "Scintilla1", "left", 1, $L1[0], $yMove)

EndFunc ;==>_move_caret
