Detect Changes on Keypress


Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

So I'm running into a problem. I'm trying to make a GUI with 5 Labels and 2 Inputboxes. 1 of the Inputs is Hidden. I want the user to enter a word, and then i want them to try to type the same word again, but I want the labels to reflect what they type except I want 1 character per label. It's hard to explain lol,

Here is a demo that explains my problem.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode",1)
Dim $Label[5]
$GUI = GUICreate("Form1", 400, 250, 192, 124)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Quit")
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 72, 192, 129, 21)
GUIctrlSetState(-1,$GUI_HIDE)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1,5)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Compare")
For $x = 0 to 4
$Label[$x] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 72+40*$x, 136, 36, 17)
Next
$Compare = GUICtrlCreateInput("",200,200, 150,17)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1,5)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Start")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    Sleep(100)
    ToolTip("Enter a 5-letter word in the box and push ENTER")
WEnd
Func Start()
    ToolTip("Now that the labels work, the GUI is unresponsive"&@CRLF&"Notice, you can't close the window"&@CRLF&"And Pressing ENTER doesnt trigger OnEvent")
    While 1
        ControlFocus($GUI,"", $Input)
        $Array = StringSplit(GuiCtrlRead($Input),"")
        For $x = 0 to $Array[0]-1
            IF GUICtrlRead($Label[$x]) <> $Array[$x+1] Then
                GUICtrlSetData($Label[$x], $Array[$x+1])
            EndIf
        Next
        For $x = 0 to 4
            If $x >= UBound($Array)-1 and GUICtrlRead($Label[$x]) <> "_" then
                GUICtrlSetData($Label[$x], "_")
            EndIf
        Next
    WEnd
EndFunc
Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc
Func Compare()
    MsgBox(0,"", "Comparing: " &@CRLF& GuiCtrlRead(@GUI_CtrlId) &@CRLF& GuiCtrlRead($Compare))
EndFunc

Any ideas on how to make this work correctly?
