Help on GUICtrlCreateInput


Recommended Posts

hi All,

I have created a GUI where i will have created a Inputbox with the function GUICtrlCreateInput. In that input box i would like to have the default text like which will look like water message(like,shadow message). is that possible to do? how can we do that? do we need to use any DLL help ?

Thank you,Regards,[font="Garamond"][size="4"]K.Syed Ibrahim.[/size][/font]

You can thank rover for digging this up:

#include <GUIConstantsEX.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("Test", 500, 300)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Info", 10, 5)
Local $aInput[6][2] = [[0, "Name"],[0, "Address"],[0, "Home Phone"],[0, "Mobile Phone"],[0, "Date of birth"],[0, "Town"]]
For $i = 0 To UBound($aInput) - 1
    $aInput[$i][0] = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, (20 * ($i + 1)), 140, 20)
    GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $EM_SETCUEBANNER, True, $aInput[$i][1])


While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit

;Does not work for edit controls with $ES_MULTILINE style.
;In XP, the banner disappears when the edit has focus (cursor in edit)
;In Vista/7 the banner can optionally still appear when the edit has focus (cursor in edit)
;(third parameter = True/False)
