Autoscroll GuiCtrlCreatEdit, with readonly on!

6 posts in this topic

Hello.

I have made a little program now, and in the program i have a log function. And then im writning things to GuiCtrlCreatEdit. But when the text comes to the bottom, it wount scroll down it self. I need to use the mouse, and drag down the roller.

How can i get this to scroll down automatic?

Now the box look like this:

$loggedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("test", 10, 620,1180, 80,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL + $ES_READONLY)

And i am writing things to the edit by reading out what is there all ready, and pasting on a new line.

Like this:

$test = GuiCtrlRead($loggedit)

$GuiCtrlSetData($loggedit, $test & @CRLF & "new lines..."

How can i get it to automatic scroll down when it is filled with text?

Harabo,

Just use _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText and it scrolls on its own: :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiEdit.au3>

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

$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 480, 200, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_READONLY))

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add Line", 10, 250, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

$iNextLine = 1

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($hEdit, "This is Line " & $iNextLine & @CRLF)
            $iNextLine += 1
    EndSwitch

WEnd

By the way, note the use of BitOR to combine styles - the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki explains why you should do it this way. :P

All clear? :)

Harabo,

Good. :)

But 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. :)

Harabo,

Then you used it incorrectly - do this:

$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 480, 200, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_READONLY))
GUICtrlSetColor($hEdit, 0xFF0000)

That gives me red text. :)

If you want different colours for different lines, then you need a RichEdit control - or you can use something like this that I wrote a while ago. :)
