decimal value in an GUICrtlCInput incremented with an UpDownCtrl

You cannot show a decimal value in the input directly - you have to cheat. :bye:

Here are 2 snippets taken from one of my scripts - the top one shows hh:mm in 5 min increments; the lower a decimal as you require:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <UpDownConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

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

$cInput_Hour = GUICtrlCreateInput("0", 70, 37, 19, 20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
Local $cUpDown_Hour = GUICtrlCreateUpdown($cInput_Hour, BitOR($UDS_WRAP, $UDS_ALIGNLEFT))
GUICtrlSetLimit($cUpDown_Hour, 9, 0)
$cInput_Min = GUICtrlCreateInput("0", 125, 37, 19, 20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
Local $cUpDown_Min = GUICtrlCreateUpdown($cInput_Min, $UDS_WRAP)
GUICtrlSetLimit($cUpDown_Min, 11, 0)
$cHours_Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0:00", 90, 38, 30, 18, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE))

$cInput_Dec = GUICtrlCreateInput("0", 70, 137, 19, 20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
Local $cUpDown_Dec = GUICtrlCreateUpdown($cInput_Dec, BitOR($UDS_WRAP, $UDS_ALIGNLEFT))
$cDec_Label = GUICtrlCreateLabel("0.0", 90, 138, 30, 18, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE))



While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func _WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $lParam

    ; If it was an update message from the inputs
    If BitShift($wParam, 16) = $EN_CHANGE Then
        ; Check which it was
        Switch BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF)
            Case $cInput_Hour, $cInput_Min
                ; Set the label to the new total
                GUICtrlSetData($cHours_Label, GUICtrlRead($cInput_Hour) & ":" & StringFormat("%02i", 5 * GUICtrlRead($cInput_Min)))
            Case $cInput_Dec
                ; Set the label to the formatted value
                GUICtrlSetData($cDec_Label, StringFormat("%.1f", GUICtrlRead($cInput_Dec) / 10))

EndFunc   ;==>_WM_COMMAND

Please ask if anything is unclear. :oops:
