problems on GUiCtrlCreateEdit (again )

Recommended Posts


I have the code that you see, it works good but i have 2 questions:

1)Why if i want to pass on a new line, i can't?

2)On The password input for the encrypt function i want to force the user to enter minimum one character, but i want also that chars to be masked with the "*" character

Here is the code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
GUICreate("Ducky's freaky Editor", 600, 600, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX))
$filemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Meniu")
$exititem = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Iesire", $filemenu)
$hEdit_1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 5, 580, 500, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL))
GuiCtrlCreateButton("Encrypt", 10, 520, 70, 20)
While 1 
    $msg = GUIGetMsg() 
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE 
        Case $msg = $exititem
        Case $msg = $encrypt
            $passul = InputBox("Password", "Enter the password desired" & @CRLF"MINIMUM 1 caracter!!!", "", "*")
            $sNewtext = ""
            $sText = GUICtrlRead($hEdit_1)
            $aLines = StringSplit($sText, @CRLF, 1)
            For $i = 1 To $aLines[0]
                $sNewtext &= _StringEncrypt(0, $aLines[$i], $passul) & @CRLF
            GUICtrlSetData($hEdit_1, $sNewtext)


Sorry for the edited code but now that i have solved the problem, i edited the source for private reasons.But i have not deleted the problems in order that the others could undesrstand what was my mistakes.

Why if i want to pass on a new line, i can't?

You set the Edit style to BitOR($WS_VSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL). This overwrites the default style (which actually includes those 2 styles) and so removes the default $ES_MULTILINE style you need to create new lines. :P

Remember that many AutoIt controls have the necessary styles built-in - look at the relevant page in the Help file to see what they are.

Remember also that if you specify a particular style, you overwrite the existing style value. So if you want an additional style, you have to respecify all of the exisitng styles as well - or you end up with just the new style on its own. :blink:

password input for the encrypt function

Read the Help file for InputBox:

"password char - [optional] The character to replace all typed characters with in the display. If you want the actual typed character to appear, define with an empty string ("") (default) or a space for the first character."

You had " M" for this parameter - the first character is a space and so, just as the help file tells you, you get the actual typed characters. If you want "*" instead, just replace the space with it: "*M". :

All clear? ;)
