Clear A Input Box

4 posts in this topic

#include-once

Func _Reset()
    GUICtrlSetData($txtBufferSize, "")
EndFunc

Lets say I have a GUI with an input box(txtBufferSize), can I clear the data from a function in the included file? Also a function from the main au3 file (GUI), calls this within the functions.au3.

The native GuiCtrlSetData() does not require any include files to work, and will work fine in main line execution of the script or any called functions, as long as $txtBufferSize is equal to the integer Control ID and the control is in an AutoIt GUI created by the same script. If you are trying to operate on an outside GUI, use ControlSetText() to specify the window and control to operate on.

Yes, assuming txtBufferSize is a global variable but that is not good practice because it means your include file is not 'general purpose' and can't be used in other scripts. Even in the same script you can't use the function for a different input so you would have to write another function to do exacly the same for a second input.

Much better to pass a parameter for the id or handle of the input.

Func ResetInput($iID)
 GUICtrlSetData($iID, "")
EndFunc

But of course I assume that this is not a real example because calling the function is not simpler than writing the code in the function.
