Checkbox/radiobutton with two lines of text

11 posts in this topic

Hi all,

as i am currently working an a GUI i come across some problems i can not solve.

one is that i would like a checkbox/radiobutton to have two (or more) lines of text (so that the text wraps around to the next line when the size limit is reached).

I can add the second line with a label, but then it is not selected when clicking the radio/checkbox...

Did i miss something or is there a way to get this?

Allow2010,

As far as I know you have to go the label route for the whole text. That also gets over the problem with the label not being selected with the radio/checkbox. :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUIStartGroup()

$hRadio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio(" Single line", 10, 10, 200, 20)

$hRadio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("", 10, 50, 20, 20)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Double line" & @CRLF & "of text", 30, 45, 180, 40)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

Thanks for the idea, but it is still not perfect:-)

- this method is not nice as single line looks and behaves different than double line

- you can not clock double line test to select the radio button

as MS does ist everywhere i am sure there is a way to do it in Autoit too.-)

Allow2010,

Really? :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUIStartGroup()

$hRadio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio(" Single line", 10, 10, 200, 20)

$hRadio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("", 10, 50, 20, 20)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Double line" & @CRLF & "of text", 30, 45, 180, 40)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hLabel
            GUICtrlSetState($hRadio_2, $GUI_CHECKED)
    EndSwitch

WEnd

And that is probably how MS do it as well. ;)

Another way of going about it:

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

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUIStartGroup()

$hRadio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio(" Single line", 10, 10, 200, 20)

$hRadio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio("Double line" & @CRLF & "of text", 10, 50, 200, 50,$BS_MULTILINE)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

BrewManNH,

Too true. I have always felt the MS developers were closet admirers of Kipling: :)
