Text on GUICtrlCreateLabel getting cut off

3 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me how I get the " Choose the browser you wish to launch the Resources Page " to show correctly ? The 'Resources Page' is cut off !!

Its driving me nuts trying to work out how to get it back without removing the colour settings and font changes etc...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Resource Launcher - Matt Marsh, May 2005", 400, 100)
GUISetBkColor (0x6495ED)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Choose the browser you wish to launch the Resources Page", 60, 10)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xff0000) 
GUICtrlSetFont (-1, 9, 800, ) 
$iebutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("IE", 70, 50, 60)
$ffbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Firefox", 280, 50, 60)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
while 1
  $bpress = GUIGetMsg()
  Select
    Case $bpress = $iebutton
      Run ( 'c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe r:\work_files\resources.htm' )
      exit
    Case $bpress = $ffbutton
      Run ( 'c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox v1\firefox.exe r:\work_files\resources.htm' )
      exit
     ExitLoop
  EndSelect
WEnd

GUICtrlCreateLabel ( "text", left, top [, width [, height [, style [, exStyle]]]] )

Currently you just had the left/top parametres and you were using the default width and height, which you found out... the height is to small. Look at the GUICtrlCreateLabel line and notice the differnece between mine and yours. I have set the height to 40 which displays it correctly :(.
