EULA the 10th


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I just came to the point where I have to include a License Agreement in one of my scripts.

So I want to load/embed a RTF file in my script, show it, and ask the user to accept it.

I did some research in the forum. Apparently using the RichtextController is someone's best shot.

So here's my code so far:

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

Func _startLicenseGUI()
    #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=D:\...\License Agreement.kxf
    $Form1_1 = GUICreate("License Agreement", 606, 571, 427, 252, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
    $Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("License Agreement", 40, 24, 137, 20, 0)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
    $Graphic1 = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(-8, 0, 611, 81)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
    $Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please read the following important information before continuing.", 48, 48, 310, 17, 0)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
    $oRP = ObjCreate("RICHTEXT.RichtextCtrl.1")
    GUICtrlSetPos($GUIActiveX, 48, 152, 513, 289)
    With $oRP; Object tag pool
        .FileName = @ScriptDir & '\License_EN.rtf'
        .Locked = True
        .ScrollBars ()    
        .MultiLine ()
        .HideSelection = False
    GUISetState();Show GUI
    $Edit2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 48, 104, 513, 25, BitOR($ES_READONLY,$ES_WANTRETURN), 0)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Please read the following License Agreement. You must accept the terms of this agreement before continuing with the system activation.")
    $Radio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("I accept the agreement", 64, 456, 145, 25)
    $Radio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("I do not accept the agreement", 64, 480, 177, 33)
    $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Continue  >>", 480, 534, 81, 25)
    $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 376, 534, 81, 25)
    $Graphic2 = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(2, 520, 603, 2, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GRAPHIC,$SS_ETCHEDHORZ))
    $Graphic3 = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(2, 82, 603, 2, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GRAPHIC,$SS_ETCHEDHORZ))
    #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

    While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg



It works out so far. The license text is shown in the window. Only problem left is the scrollbars of the Richtext Controller. I just can't get them to work.

It seems like the apperance properties from the Richtext Editor are not completely integrated?

Here's a link with all possible properties: Richtext Control Box Properties

Maybe anybody of you ran into this once too and figured out how to get solved. It's bothering me.

Also I'd rather embed the RTF file in the script somehow. Does anybody have experience with that?

Thanks a lot
