I was wondering if anyone knows how to click on a text box and then text in the box disappears on the click.

I was thinking of using something like this, but could use some help.

MouseClick ( "textbox")

I m a little confused :S You ask for something and you write another.

What i understand from what you are requesting is a function to clear a textbox when you click on it

but you write



why do you want the mouse click anywhere on the screen while you holding the CTRL key???

sorry, i don`t understand the request

Sorry for poor explaination. I have a textbox that I enter info into and when the button is click I want the info in the textbox to remain after clicking the button, but I was hoping that the text would clear when you click your mouse on the text box.

You should always do a quick search on these things, its forum 101.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Clear = 0

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 242, 99)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Enter ID", 40, 24, 121, 21)
$btn1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Catches initial focus", 40, 70)

GUICtrlSetState ($btn1, $GUI_Focus)


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


    If _IsFocused ($Form1, $Input1) And $Clear = 0 Then
        GUICtrlSetData ($Input1, "")
        $Clear = 1
    ElseIf $Clear = 1  And Not _IsFocused ($Form1, $Input1) Then
        $Clear = 0


Func _IsFocused($hWnd, $nCID)
    Return ControlGetHandle($hWnd, '', $nCID) = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, '', ControlGetFocus($hWnd))
EndFunc   ;==>_IsFocused
