edit box getting full

8 posts in this topic

my edit box is getting full and not showing anymore text unless i delete some stuff from the top...

any simple way to clear all but the last 10 lines every so often?

The fun way: _GUICtrlEdit_GetLineCount() followed by _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel() to select all but the last 10, then replace the selection with "" using _GUICtrlEdit_ReplaceSel().

You could also just get all the text as a string, manipulate that, then ControlSetText() to put it back.

;)

supadodger,

Or you could postpone the inevitable by using _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText to increase the default Windows limit of 32k chars in an edit control. ;)

Just in case the OP wanted and actual working version based on the original intent:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hGUI, $idButton, $sText = "", $idEdit

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Edit Replace Sel", 400, 340)
For $n = 1 To 100
    $sText &= "This is line " & $n & @CRLF
Next
$idEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sText, 10, 10, 380, 280)
$idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Last 10", 150, 300, 100, 30)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $idButton
            $sText = ControlGetText($hGUI, "", $idEdit)
            $sText = StringMid($sText, StringInStr($sText, @LF, False, -10))
            ControlSetText($hGUI, "", $idEdit, $sText)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

All the other references to _GuiCtrlEdit_SetLimitTest() are certainly a simpler option, though.

Recently I found that GUICtrlSetLimit works very well in this case.


SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script
