GUI Input to Notepad

24 posts in this topic

I really want to make a GUI that when you type a text in the Input box and click a button a Notepad should pop up and the text you wrote in the GUI input box appears in the Notepad.

I've tried this for an hour now and could not figure out how to do it correctly. It seems that it's giving me errors and when I'm correcting those errors I'm getting no where.

Please help modify my code below:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 218, 123, 192, 124)

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 16, 24, 185, 21)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 56, 72, 107, 25)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Switch $nMsg

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Exit

Case ($Input1)

ControlGetText ( "Form1", "Form1", Input1 )

Case ($Button1)

Run ("Notepad.exe")

ControlSend ( "Notepad", "Untitled - Notepad", $Input1, "" )

EndSwitch

WEnd

Thank You.

I've corrected your code (see the differences?), and also added formatting for my tired eyes..

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

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 218, 123, 192, 124)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 16, 24, 185, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 56, 72, 107, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            Run ("Notepad.exe")
            Sleep(250)
            ControlSend ("Notepad", "", "Edit1", GUICtrlRead($Input1))
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Thank You very much for the script really appreciate it,

but when I tried it few more times it's now opening notepad and there's no text written on notepad.

What's seems to be the problem?

Thank You.

I don't know. Try increasing the Sleep value. Remember, it's values are in milliseconds. So 500 is half a second, 1000 is 1 second..

Maybe instead of sleep use WinWait()

Okay thanks it's working

Please I have 2 more questions:

1. How do you place these signs "< >", in the GUI, instead of writing them down in the input box if you were to expand from the above code you given me.

For example:

In the GUI input box you write the word "text" and it shows something like this in the Notepad: "<text>"

2. I want to make two (2) GUI Input boxes with one (1) GUI button. The first GUI input should show <text> in the first line of Notepad and the Second GUI input should show in the second line of notepad.

For example:

In the GUI you have:

Input1 [text1 ]

Input2 [text2 ]

Button

So when the button is clicked notepad appears:

<text1> in first line

<text2> in second line

Thank You.

@monoscout999 - good call on WinWait

@edena - the & is a concatenation character, @CRLF is a carriage return/line feed macro. See what I did here? Besides adding another input control, I just added to the ControlSend string parameter. Oh, and I replaced the Sleep with WinWait. And Oh again, I replaced ControlSend with ControlSetText. They both work the same here, I don't know the difference between them..

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 16, 24, 185, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 16, 45, 185, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 56, 72, 107, 25)

I replaced ControlSend with ControlSetText. They both work the same here, I don't know the difference between them..

ControlSend will send each key after the other, like if some one were writing the text. ControlSetText will put the entire text at once into the Edit.

So I guess SetKeyDelay would have not the effect on ControlSetText it would on ControlSend. I'll have to try that out later just to see. Thanks.

Can you save the file to the desktop and write the file name which is stated in Input2 also with another GUI Input3 for placing file extenstions, example: .txt or .au3?

Like you have this GUI:

Input1 (will write this on notepad like this: <Input1>)

Input2 (you will write down the file name)

Input3 (you will write the file extension option here . For example: .txt or .au3

Button

So when the button is pressed the file will appear on the desktop with the name you given from Input2 and with the file extension you given from Input3.

This is how far I've gone with the script can anyone help me with this:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 212, 193, 192, 124)

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 40, 24, 129, 21)

$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 40, 64, 129, 21)

$Input3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input3", 40, 104, 129, 21)

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 40, 144, 131, 25)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Switch $nMsg

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Exit

Case $Button1

Run ("Notepad.exe")

WinWait("Notepad")

ControlSetText("Notepad", "", "Edit1", "<" & GUICtrlRead($Input1) & ">")

Sleep(1000)

Send("{ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}a")

EndSwitch

WEnd

I've also tried: "FileSaveDialog" but cannot figure this out.

Thank You.

You don't need to open Notepad to achieve all this. If you explain more what you want to achieve we can help with that.

Meanwhile try:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
#region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 212, 193, 192, 124)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("My Note:", 40, 10)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 40, 24, 129, 21)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("File name:", 40, 50)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 40, 64, 129, 21)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Extention:", 40, 90)
$Input3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input3", 40, 104, 129, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 40, 144, 131, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#endregion ### END Koda GUI section ###
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
Case $Button1
Run("Notepad.exe")
WinWait("Notepad")
ControlSetText("Notepad", "", "Edit1", "<" & GUICtrlRead($Input1) & ">")
Sleep(1000)
Send("{ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}a")
Sleep(500)
Send(GUICtrlRead($Input2) & "." & GUICtrlRead($Input3))
Sleep(500)
Send("{enter}")
EndSwitch
WEnd

Thank you very much for the script I really appreciate it.

Okay,

I want to create a one page html page that is why I really want Input1 to work just for me to start writing the html script.

But the script you given me does not write down the html tags on the notepad which are this "<" and this ">" and of course text must be written between the tags.

You can see that the previous script writes the html tags with the text given by somdcomputerguy

Thank You.

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Extention:", 40, 90)
$Input3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Html", 40, 104, 129, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 40, 144, 131, 25)

Thanks JoHanatCent

I think I've corrected the problem with the first script you given me. I've increased the Sleep to 1000 and it works fine.

Your second code is even better makes work more looking professional.

Thank You

How do you save the file in a destination like in the Desktop or in My Documents.

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      So i was fideling around whit it but couldn't get it to work.
      In the real script (not this simplified version) i got a lot of functions whish i can use whan talking to it by commandline and switches.
      I could not get this to work and hope somebody could give me some pointers on how to make it work.
      Also I was hoping iff somebody could help me whit the /? function?
      (I don't know how to output the help text back to the commandline or the function that can help me do it)
      please advice and thanks in advanced.

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!
