GUICtrlIpAddress_Create

4 posts in this topic

Hi

Does anyone have the problem when using _GUICtrlIpAddress_Create and the user is an idiot and enters a value greater than 255. The Function correct the user error by reverting it to 255 but then stop movement to next octet.

eg. if I enter 150.7.500. the function automatically changes it to 150.7.|255. but the cursor go behind the 255 which stops you entering anything.

vickerps,

I do not see it as a problem, more a welcome feature! :blink:

If an "idiot" enters an invalid octet, the control prevents this, or any subsequent, value being taken into account and forces the user to correct it before continuing. The cursor is well positioned for the delete key and there is no doubt about which value needs to be corrected.

Thanks for the reply Melba23

I see your point but rather than replacing the value with 255 it would be better if it simply remove the entry all together and blank the incorrectly entered octet

That control is a standard Windows API type (MSDN: IP Address Control), so if you don't like its behavior, talk to Microsoft:

MSDN: IPM_SETRANGE Message

Remarks

If the user enters a value in the field that is outside of this range, the control will send the IPN_FIELDCHANGED notification with the entered value. If the value is still outside of the range after sending the notification, the control will attempt to change the entered value to the closest range limit.

Notice you can register the IPN_FIELDCHANGED message and deal with it yourself. The default behavior only happens if the parent app doesn't deal with it first.
