Editbox Appending

8 posts in this topic

Hi folks,

I am trying to create an ini editor for work purposes. I have a GUI which has a context menu built on the fly from ini sections. When I click on the menu it it then passes the section name to a function that uses $text=IniReadSection ( $g_IniFile, $section ). This then puts the section keys into the editbox $edit1 using

$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("",30,70,600,300,BitOR($ES_NOHIDESEL,$ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL,$WS_VSCROLL, $ES_MULTILINE))

GUICtrlSetData ($Edit1 ,_readsection($sText))

The problem is this, before running GUICtrlSetData ($Edit1 ,_readsection($sText))

I run a clear function which essentially does

this

GUICtrlSetData ($Edit1 ,"") which clears the text OK from $edit1

If I then rightclick and bring up my selecting another section it puts it into the editbox but it is appended to the

section text that was there previously. AHs anayone got any ideas where I'mgoing wrong. I have searched for 2 days in forum but can't see any thing releavant.

I a have also tried in clear the following:

$rs=GUICtrlSetData($Edit1 , "","")

sleep(2000)

If $rs=1 Then

msgbox(0,$rs, "Success")

Else

msgbox(0,$rs, "Failure")

Endif

this returns 1

Also tried

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($edit1,"")

and

GUICtrlSendMsg($Edit1 , $WM_SETTEXT, 0, "")

No joy either , thanks in advance for your suggestions.Also , any ideas how I can save edited text to the file.

Ambient,

The code you have tried should work, as you can see here:

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

$sText = "Just for a start"
$sText2 = "And now for something completely different"

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

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change", 10, 10, 80, 30)

$hEdit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 50, 480, 300, BitOR($ES_NOHIDESEL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_MULTILINE))

GUISetState()

GUICtrlSetData($hEdit1, $sText)

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            GUICtrlSetData($hEdit1, $sText2)
    EndSwitch

WEnd

So I am tempted to suspect the problem is in the function that sends the text to the GUICtrlSetData command - _readsection. Have you looked at what it is returning - perhaps a quick ConsoleWrite or MsgBox as it returns might pay dividends! ;)

I suspect you may be right did a quick consolewrite and it looks like it is returning duplicate key names? However only showing one in Editbox. Anyway haven't time today to look at it further . Thank you very much for your suggestion. I'll keep you posted.

Hello, M23.

Is it possible to use a $Edit box, to display the content of a .INI file.

Imagine, that you have a .INI file in your documents folder, and you want to edit it, but using one $EDIT box, sow you have to read the .INI file in to the $Edit Box, and if you made any change of the text that is on the $Edit box, you can save it.

Do you think that's possible?

Thanks in advance.

mini,

Please do not hijack threads - it is considered rude here! ;)

But yes, you can do what you ask very easily. Look at FileRead and FileWrite in the Help file.

If you want more help, start a new topic! :evil:
