Require edit box input

2 posts in this topic

I am using MessageLoop mode for the GUI.

I have multiple groups of yes/no radio box.

Once Group1 has a selection, Group2 is un-hid. Group3 is hidden until Group2 has a selection. The Edit1 box is never hidden.

I need to require input in the Edit1 box if either or both Group1 is "yes" or Group2 is "no" before Group3 is displayed.

I seem to be drawing a blank on how to accomplish this.

How can I add a check to see if the Edit1 box has data so Group2 or Group3 can then be un-hid?

I would probably use $EN_CHANGE notification to detect when something in the edit has changed, and at that time check there is something in the edit and set a global variable which you can use to decide whether or not to show group3.

$edit1hastext = False

$g1 = guicreate("edit change")
$edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 300, 200)
$b1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("any text?", 100, 240)
GUISetState()

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "MY_WM_COMMAND");so we can catch the $EN_CHANGE

While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    if $msg = -3 then Exit

    If $Msg = $b1 Then
        If $edit1hastext Then
            MsgBox(262144, "Text in edit?", "yes")
        Else
            MsgBox(262144, "Text in edit?", "no")
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd




Func MY_WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; LoWord - this gives the control which sent the message
    Local $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; HiWord - this gives the message that was sent
    If $iCode = $EN_CHANGE Then ; If we have the correct message
        Switch $iIDFrom ; See if it comes from $Edit1
            Case $edit1
                $edit1hastext = GUICtrlRead($edit1) <> ''

        EndSwitch
    EndIf
    
EndFunc   ;==>MY_WM_COMMAND
