Changing the data in a Gui Label... how to..

Recommended Posts

tommytx

Can someone help me with this.. I want to routinely change the data shown on the basic label routinely and nothing seems to work... For example I want to change the text from "Line 1 Cell 1" to like Hello Dolly

and it says I need the control Id to identify the control. How do I find the control ID so I can use it to help in changing the data on the label.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Line 1 Cell 1", 10, 30, 70)
GUISetState()
sleep(3000)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Hello Dolly")
GUISetState()
Do
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

When you create a control it will return the control id, you simply store it in a variable for later use.

Why do you want to change the Text to "Hello Dolly" again and again, if that was just an example then you can use a For or Do Until loop.

E.G.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI")  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
$Control_ID = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Line 1 Cell 1", 10, 30, 70)
GUISetState()
sleep(3000)
GUICtrlSetData($Control_ID, "Hello Dolly")
GUISetState()
Do
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

See the comments below for what to change.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered
Global $Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Line 1 Cell 1", 10, 30, 70) ; First save the handle of the label to a variable
GUISetState()
Sleep(3000)
GUICtrlSetData($Label, "Hello Dolly") ; Next we use that handle with GUICtrlSetData to change what the label says.
GUISetState()
Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

OOPS! Sorry.. it looks like the original response was made by Aipion.... I just read the comment and skipped to the next one not realizing you had given a very nice example of what i should do... Thank you very much Aipion..

Also for anyone following this thread, I tested and its not necessary to include the Gui set state following the gui set data... works fine without the extra command... I was only required to use the gui set state once following creation.

That is nice, if you have to change state a lot of times.. you only need one line command vice 2 lines.

Bottom line this thread solved my problem...
