Set Controlname

Recommended Posts

Lempke

Is it possible to set a controlname for GUICtrlCreateLabel? I would like to refer to this control further in the script

I already use this:

GUICtrlCreateLabel("whatever", 10,10, 20, 50)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

But when I have more labels and I would like to adjust this one I can't use -1 anymore

Lempke,

Just assign the ControlID to a label and use that variable to identify the control: ;)

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("whatever", 10,10, 20, 50)

; Now you can use this later in the script
GUICtrlSetState($hLabel, $GUI_DISABLE)

GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, "Hit there!")

All clear? :)

Okay, I can use that as a workarond, but that won't show up in my AutoIt Window Info under the Control Name. I think its just cleaner when I could set the control name

I have never seen anyone use any other way of identifying variables! :)

Looking at your joining date - was that something you could do with older versions of AutoIt? And what advantage does/did it give you over the variable? ;)

No nothing in an older version, just curious of a way to adjust this name. AutoIt Window Info can get a value for this, it would be nice to set it as well.
