Edit in GUI

Recommended Posts

if i enter a long paragrahp of text in an Edit, it will not change line unless I start a new paragraph. Is there a way to force it the change line once it reaches a certain length?

The forum "Search" facility is at top right. Entering "+edit +wordwrap" would have led you to a number of topics explaining how to do what you want. :(

You need the $ES_WANTRETURN and $ES_MULTILINE styles in your edit control to get wordwrap to work: :graduated:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

$sText = "This is a long pice of text which should require wrapping in the edit control - " & _
"which is provided by the combination of $ES_WANTRETURN and $ES_MULTILINE styles"

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

$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 480, 300, BitOr($ES_WANTRETURN, $ES_MULTILINE))

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add Text", 10, 450, 80, 30)


While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $hButton
            GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, $sText)
