Button text help please.

9 posts in this topic

Hi

I am having trouble creating button text using the symbol & I had the same problem using " but I managed to get that working by using the ASCII code Char(34).

Please look at the attached code to see what I mean, I have tried numerous methods but all with the same result! So I am hoping some guru on here will tell me I am a fool and show me the simple way of doing it!

Thanks in advance!

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 419, 197, 192, 124)
GUISetBkColor(0x00FFFF)
GUISetFont(12, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("A", 80, 64, 65, 57, $WS_GROUP)      ;Create button with A as button text

$Ditto = Chr(34)                                                    ;Create button with " as button text
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton($Ditto, 168, 64, 65, 57, $WS_GROUP)

$AndSym = Chr(38)                                                   ;Create button with & symbol as button text, Can't get this to work?
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton($AndSym, 264, 64, 65, 57, $WS_GROUP)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Illuma,

Weird though?

Not really. & is used to set a particular letter to act as the accelerator key for a button (and menu item) when Alt is pressed. So to actually use it as part of the text, you need to escape it in some fashion. :)

Run this script and press "Alt-P": ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Press P", 10, 10, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            MsgBox(0, "", "You pressed me!")
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Illuma,

Want to try for a third? :)

When you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. ;)

And wouldn't this work?

; $Ditto = Chr(34)  ; <<<<< not necessary
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton('"', 168, 64, 65, 57, $WS_GROUP)    ;Create button with " as button text
