How to Make Ruler Guidelines

7 posts in this topic

If I create an edit, how do I limit the amount of text put in one line before it automatically goes to the next one?

If you mean something like Notepad's Word-Wrap, then try using this when making an edit control: BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_READONLY,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_VSCROLL)

;) If you mean something like Rulers drawn in MS-Word's Edit Control, then I am sorry, I have no idea.

Try this:

;coded by UEZ 2012
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>


$hGUI = GUICreate("Test GUI", 615, 438, -1, -1)
$idEdit= GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 32, 72, 553, 337, BitOR($ES_AUTOHSCROLL, $ES_WANTRETURN, $WS_VSCROLL))
$hEdit = GUICtrlGetHandle($idEdit)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Edit1")
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 16, 400, 0, "Times New Roman")
$iChars = 10
$idLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Automatic line break after " & $iChars & " chars", 32, 16, 388, 35)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "Times New Roman")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND")

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "")
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    #forceref $hWnd, $iMsg, $lParam
    Switch BitAND($wParam, 0x0000FFFF)
        Case $idEdit
            If StringLen(_GUICtrlEdit_GetLine($hEdit, _GUICtrlEdit_LineFromChar($hEdit))) > $iChars - 1 Then
                _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($hEdit, @CRLF)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
    Return "GUI_RUNDEFMSG"
EndFunc

This does not seem to work.......

Yeah1 That is what I mean, but how do I implement it?

You have to be more precise with you issue otherwise there is a lot of room for interpretations...
