Input Select All

Recommended Posts


In the following script I'm trying to use the keyboard key combination ctrl+a to select all of the contents in input box 3. Nothing happens after I click inside input box 3 and type ctrl+a. How can I use ctrl+a to select all the contents in input box 3?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)  ; Change to OnEvent mode
$mWinTitle = "Test Copy Input"
$mainwindow = GUICreate($mWinTitle, 300, 150)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Input Label 1", 10, 10)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Input Label 2", 10, 50)

$ipt1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input 1 Test", 80, 10, 215, 20)
$ipt2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input 2 Test", 80, 50, 215, 20)

$ipt3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 75, 290, 20)
GUICtrlSetState($ipt3, $GUI_DEFBUTTON)

$btn1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Btn1", 175, 115, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btn1, "")

$btn2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Btn2", 235, 115, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($btn2, "")

$dummywindow = GUICreate("Dummy window for testing ", 200, 100)

WinSetOnTop($mainwindow, "", 1)

GUICtrlSetData($ipt3, GUICtrlRead($ipt1) & " ---- " & GUICtrlRead($ipt2))

While 1
  Sleep(1000)  ; Idle around

Func InsertBtn()
  ;Note: at this point @GUI_CTRLID would equal $okbutton
  ;MsgBox(0, "GUI Event", "You pressed Insert!")

Func CLOSEClicked()
  ;Note: at this point @GUI_CTRLID would equal $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,
  ;@GUI_WINHANDLE will be either $mainwindow or $dummywindow
  If @GUI_WINHANDLE = $mainwindow Then 
    ;MsgBox(0, "GUI Event", "You clicked CLOSE in the main window! Exiting...")
EndFunc     ;==>CLOSEDClicked

Thank you for your help,

Try making them Edit controls (set styles to remove scroll bars). I think the Windows API for that control type will do it for you.
