Input Box Problem

Recommended Posts


I am working with a GUI input box. When I type in a number in the input box and click update, it works great; but, when I type another number in the box or just click update again, it doesn't work. The input box returns the value zero.

Any idea where I went wrong with this?

Hi, in this line

$MainInputNumber = GUICtrlRead($MainInputNumber)

you are overwritting the control handle with the data fround in the control

Its easier to keep track of your variables if you use a naming method like $hForHandle and $sForString

$sMainInputNumber = GUICtrlRead($hMainInputNumber)
