GetText screwed up

Recommended Posts



I have been using the following GUICtrlCreateInput($delayvalue,18,-25,45,22) and trying to fetch the value of the text entered in "$delayvalue" field am printing it like Msgbox(0,"",$delayvalue), but blank popup is displayed without any value.

I also tried using ControlGetText as below

Local $i


$i = ControlGetText("Automate",$delayvalue, "Edit2")

But when i print $i it prints blank am not sure where am going wrong can anyone help me plz?

You use GUICtrlRead to get the content of your own controls:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

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

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 480, 20)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read", 10, 100, 80, 30)


While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $hButton
            $sInput = GUICtrlRead($hInput) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            MsgBox(0, "Input", $sInput)
