First problem: _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel

Second problem: _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel

Fourth problem : ShellExecute

trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning.

3rd problem

If FileExists(GUICtrlRead($myEdit)) Then GUICtrlSetData($myEdit, FileRead(GUICtrlRead($myEdit)))

EDIT: This will work for a single file only. If you need it to do multiple files then I'm reasonably sure I can work out a StringRegExp() that will do it.

thanks all for reply

i sorted out 4th problem by "ShellExecute" command

but i unable to solve other problems, help me to rectify this

here my sample code, please correct it so i can understand practically

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 161, 189, 192, 124)
$Send = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Send")
$All = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("ALL", $Send)
$Selected = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Selected", $Send)
$About = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("About", $Send)
$EditField = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 0, 145, 161)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Edit1")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $nMsg = $All
        WinWaitActive("Untitled")
        ControlSend("Untitled", "", "", GUICtrlRead($EditField))
        MsgBox(0, "all sent", GUICtrlRead($EditField))
        Case $nMsg = $Selected
        WinWaitActive("Untitled")
        ControlSend("Untitled", "", "", GUICtrlRead($EditField))
        MsgBox(0, "selection sent", GUICtrlRead($EditField))
        Case $nMsg = $About
        ShellExecute("about.txt")
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    EndSelect
WEnd

text will be copied to untitled notepad when active

another question is any way to send unicode characters ? ie chiness, russian text ?

i played with send & controlsend command but no luck
