Underline some words in a label

Recommended Posts

funkey

Here is my new little function to create a label where some words are underlined.

I hope someone will need this.

GUICreate('Some words in the labels are underlined', 700, 320)

_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some words are underlined, some are not.", 10, 10, "3;6", 20)
_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some words are underlined, some are not.", 10, 50, "3;6", 10)
_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some words are underlined, some are not.", 10, 80, "3;6", 18)

_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some words are underlined, some are not.", 10, 120, "3;6", 20, "Courier")
_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some words are underlined, some are not.", 10, 150, "1;3;6", 10, "Courier")
_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some words are underlined, some are not.", 10, 180, "3;6", 18, "Arial")

$aLabel = _GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords("Some text: Link", 10, 220, "2", 60, "Arial")

GUICtrlSetColor($aLabel[2], 0x0000ff)
GUICtrlSetCursor($aLabel[2], 0)

GUISetState()

Local $msg
Do
    Sleep(10)
 $msg = GUIGetMsg()
 If $msg = $aLabel[2] Then MsgBox(64, "_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords", "Greetings from Austria!")
Until $msg = -3

Func _GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords($sText, $iPosX, $iPosY, $sIndex, $iFontSize = 8.5, $sFont = 'Microsoft Sans Serif')
 ;funkey 2010, 11th of June
    GUISetFont($iFontSize, 400, 0, $sFont)
    Local $aIndex = StringSplit($sIndex, ";", 2)
    Local $aText = StringSplit(StringStripWS($sText, 7), " ", 2)
    Local $hLabel[UBound($aText)]
    $hLabel[0] = GUICtrlCreateLabel($aText[0], $iPosX, $iPosY)
    Local $hGui = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "GetParent", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle(-1))
    $hGui = $hGui[0]
    Local $aPos
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aText) -1
        $aPos = ControlGetPos($hGui, "", GUICtrlGetHandle(-1))
        $hLabel[$i] = GUICtrlCreateLabel($aText[$i], $iPosX + $aPos[0] + $aPos[2] - 15 + Ceiling($iFontSize / 3), $iPosY)
    Next
    For $i = 0 To UBound($aIndex) -1
        GUICtrlSetFont($hLabel[$aIndex[$i]], Default, Default, 4)
    Next
    Return $hLabel
EndFunc

Nice.

Check out my _GUICtrlCreateTFLabel UDF.

Here is (almoust) the same example using this UDF:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

#include "GUICtrlCreateTFLabel.au3"

GUICreate('Some words in the labels are underlined', 700, 320)

$sLabel1_Data = '<font size="20">Some words are</font> <font size="20" attrib="underlined">underlined,</font> <font size="20">some are</font> <font size="20" attrib="underlined">not.</font>'
$sLabel2_Data = '<font size="10">Some words are</font> <font size="10" attrib="underlined">underlined,</font> <font size="10">some are</font> <font size="10" attrib="underlined">not.</font>'
$sLabel3_Data = '<font size="18">Some words are</font> <font size="18" attrib="underlined">underlined,</font> <font size="18">some are</font> <font size="18" attrib="underlined">not.</font>'
$sLabel4_Data = '<font size="20" name="Courier">Some words are</font> <font size="20" name="Courier" attrib="underlined">underlined,</font> <font size="20" name="Courier">some are</font> <font size="20" name="Courier" attrib="underlined">not.</font>'
$sLabel5_Data = '<font size="10" name="Courier">Some</font> <font size="10" name="Courier" attrib="underlined">words</font> <font size="10" name="Courier">are</font> <font size="10" name="Courier" attrib="underlined">underlined,</font> <font size="10" name="Courier">some are</font> <font size="10" name="Courier" attrib="underlined">not.</font>'
$sLabel6_Data = '<font size="18" name="Arial">Some words are</font> <font size="18" name="Arial" attrib="underlined">underlined,</font> <font size="18" name="Arial">some are</font> <font size="18" name="Arial" attrib="underlined">not.</font>'
$sLabel7_Data = '<font size="60" name="Arial">Some text:</font> <font size="60" name="Arial" color="blue" attrib="underlined">Link</font>'

_GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel1_Data, 10, 10)
_GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel2_Data, 10, 50)
_GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel3_Data, 10, 80)

_GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel4_Data, 10, 120)
_GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel5_Data, 10, 150)
_GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel6_Data, 10, 180)

$nLabel = _GUICtrlCreateTFLabel($sLabel7_Data, 10, 220)
GUICtrlSetCursor($nLabel[3], 0)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $nLabel[3]
            MsgBox(64, "_GuiCtrlCreateLabel_UnderlineWords", "Greetings from Austria!")
    EndSwitch
WEnd

You could replace

GUICtrlSetFont($hLabel[$aIndex[$i]], Default, Default, 4)

to

GUICtrlSetFont($hLabel[$aIndex[$i] - 1], Default, Default, 4)

Could solve problems. I think its easier this way. Nice UDF though :mellow:

Thanks for your comments. MrCreatoR: Your function is much more universal than mine, but it takes much more time to create a label with your string syntax. My function is simple and the syntax is simple too. And I could change the funtion to make the labels italic or striked. For colored labels there I use an old function of mine.

#include <GDIPlus.au3>

Err... What happens when I want to use a square bracket in my label?

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Nothing is perfect, sorry. It's just an easy function, that does what I wanted, so I never needed brackets in my labels. If you need to, then use MrCreatoR's UDF or do it label for label by hand :mellow:

I wasn't criticizing you. I was pointing out an obvious error in your logic that you failed to see. Was hoping that me seeing it and asking, would give you the umph to fix it rather than make excuses or suggest that I use something else.

To be quite honest, I wouldn't use either of your methods.

Well, I might use MrCreatOr's syntax method, but I would have created a GUI that I could have edited the text visually, and from there have it spit out the string code.

Or at the very least wrote a function that I could have passed "String", "Color", "Size", "Etc" to and had it return the string I needed.

Anyway, just food for thought, if you take it as constructive criticism, maybe you can push the envelope a bit more.

Very good idea, as always :mellow: . Already started to work on the visual editor for this UDF...
