Statusbar max text length ?

Recommended Posts

sheck

Statusbar won't display text longer than 700 pixels

Example:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Global $hStatus

Local $hGUI
Local $aParts[1] = [10000]
$hGUI = GUICreate("StatusBar Resize", 1000, 300, -1, -1)
$hStatus = _GUICtrlStatusBar_Create($hGUI)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetParts($hStatus, $aParts)
_GUICtrlStatusBar_SetText($hStatus, "11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111112222222")
GUISetState()
Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete()

As you can see it cuts off the text. Somehow I cannot find any information on this. Is this a Microsoft limit or is there a command I'm not aware of ?

sheck,

Works fine for me. I can extend the GUI to the full @DesktopWidth and lengthen the string to fit - I still get it all in the StatusBar.

I can see the limit on my machine - the last "2" characters arent displayed. I get exactly 127 characters. So I think it's a limit somewhere.

I'm running AutoIt 3.3.4.0 on Windows XP SP 2 german.

sheck and water,

Vista HP SP2 - 6000 pixel wide GUI with 500 character status bar - displays perfectly.

Perhaps an XP limit?

Edit: clarity.

In Windows XP and earlier, the text for each part is limited to 127 characters. This limitation has been removed in Windows Vista.
