restricting input to numbers only

13 posts in this topic

hello again.

this time i'm looking to restrict the info to be input in the input thing to numbers only.

unless there's a nifty line of code i can add, i'd prefer to do it something like this

$inputk1=GUICtrlCreateInput("",0,40,100,20)
        if $inputk1 is not numbers then
                 msgbox(1,"","please input numbers only")
        endif

suggestions?

GodForsakenSoul,

Just create the input with the $ES_NUMBER style. It is all in the Help file..... ;)

GodForsakenSoul,

In the Example Script, can you demonstrate how to use $ES_NUMBER to force the user to input an integer only instead of autoit?

;

; AutoIt Version: 3.0

; Language: English

; Platform: Win9x/NT

; Author: Jonathan Bennett (jon@hiddensoft.com)

;

; Script Function:

; Demonstrates the InputBox, looping and the use of @error.

;

; Prompt the user to run the script - use a Yes/No prompt (4 - see help file)

$answer = MsgBox(4, "AutoIt Example (English Only)", "This script will open an input box and get you to type in some text. Run?")

; Check the user's answer to the prompt (see the help file for MsgBox return values)

; If "No" was clicked (7) then exit the script

If $answer = 7 Then

MsgBox(4096, "AutoIt", "OK. Bye!")

Exit

EndIf

; Loop around until the user gives a valid "autoit" answer

$bLoop = 1

While $bLoop = 1

$text = InputBox("AutoIt Example", "Please type in the word ""autoit"" and click OK")

If @error = 1 Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", "You pressed 'Cancel' - try again!")

Else

; They clicked OK, but did they type the right thing?

If $text <> "autoit" Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", "You typed in the wrong thing - try again!")

Else

$bLoop = 0 ; Exit the loop - ExitLoop would have been an alternative too ;)

EndIf

EndIf

WEnd

RobertH,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. ;)

Does this make it clear? Try entering anything other than a number! :evil:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

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

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 250, 20, $ES_NUMBER)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Come back if it does not.

M23

P.S. When you psot code, please use Code tags. Put [autoit ] before and [/autoit ] after your posted code (but omit the trailing space - it is only there so the tags display here).

Thank you. It makes it clear and opens my eyes to another useful part of AutoIt.

RobertH,

Glad I could help! ;)

P.S. When you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. :evil:

Thanks Melba23. With the help of this forum I was able to put together the following code. But I still have one problem that I can't seem to figure out. If the person does not enter a number and presses the "OK" button, the program will still try to go and download the zipped sales file. It will not work because there is no employee ID number to attach to the filename. I think that I have to use an "IF THEN ELSE" statement in the Func OKButton section but I haven't been able to get it right. Can someone point me in the right direction with some examples?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
$hGUI = GUICreate("Enter Employee ID Number", 275, 70)
$empID = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 250, 20, $ES_NUMBER)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 10, 35, 60)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($okbutton, "OKButton")
$cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 200, 35, 60)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent($cancelbutton, "CANCELButton")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CLOSEClicked")
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func OKButton()
    Run("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE http://www.fakewebsite.com/sales/individual/sales_data/" & GUICtrlRead($empID) & "weekly.zip")
EndFunc

Func CANCELButton()
  Exit
EndFunc

Func CLOSEClicked()
  Exit
EndFunc

RobertH,

Just check if there is something in the input.

Change the relevant lines thus:

; This must be Global so the function can see it
Global $empID = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 250, 20, $ES_NUMBER)

; Check there is something in the input - it can only be a number so we need not worry about using IsNumber
Func OKButton()
    If GUICtrlRead($empID) <> "" Then Run(.......)
EndFunc

As usual, ask if anything is unclear. :evil:

If you wanted to get really fancy we could check it was a valid employee number...... :evil:

Take a look at StringRegExp

Not necessary as we are dealing with all-number integers, thank goodness. ;)

please help if i should had of receives of the good returns with the form submission as the correct of number as those with the input box.

the script above returns of the number 0 with the records on csv files.

yet the $ES_NUMBER customs referring of the number only with the chance on submitting entries

but the returns of any number with the forms shows of "0" with each of csv files

had just tried to add of the $ES_NUMBER with the Global constant with the id string details with the form requests.

should those had as much with each of calling with the sentences on process?

You should have started your own thread instead of tacking on to a 5 year one.

Your problem actually has nothing to do with $ES_NUMBER.

You are deleting the Graphic User Interface, GUIDelete($GUI), then you are trying to read the controls belonging to that now non- existent window.
The reading of the non-existent controls returns zero which you are writing to the csv files.
