Avoiding breaking long lines in MessageBox

Recommended Posts

b0x4it

Is there any way to force MsgBox to NOT break long lines without spaces like URLs?

Why not just display them in the edit control of a GUI?

That's a good suggestion, but it is simply a MsgBox and I don't want to go through creating GUI just for showing couple of URL! Any other idea?

That's why there's Koda, do take a shot at it, its easier than you might think ;)

Any other idea?

Nope, not right now :)

Got one :) you can try SplashTextOn()..

Or you can write it to a plain file, or a nice HTML file of links; depends on what you want to want to do with the links afterwards

WWOOWW, I didn't know about Koda. Thank you sooo much. I was thinking about something like it, and now I found there is one. Thank you :)

I first found AutoHotkey, and then because of its syntax that I do not like, I start searching about other alternative and then I found AutoIt and I am very pleased with it. I am thinking if there isn't something like this for AutoHotkey then I can say that other than the systax, there is another huge difference between AutoIt and AutoHotkey that is Koda and make AutoIt more more powerful than AutoHotkey!

Thanks again!

Yes, SplashTextOn() is another good choice. Thanks for that!

People forget that the dialogs used by AutoIt are standard Windows dialogs and as such are not under AutoIts immediate control; that includes the Message Box which has a maximun width.

That principal applies to pretty much everything in AutoIt, the amount of customization possible is limited by what the Windows libraries will allow you to do with them.

That's right! Thanks for your note!

b0x4it,

If you use my ExtMsgBox UDF you can define the max width of the dialog which should allow you to display your URLs without line breaks. ;)

Look in my sig to get the latest version. :)
