Format Text In Msg Window?


Recommended Posts

I would suggest the Autoit3-gui project,

Larry also has one:

v1.0.23.0

http://www.hiddensoft.com/fileman/users/Larry/au3guixp.zip

v2.0.4.0

They provide a lot more flexiblilty.

The future may hold more Gui in AutoIt3.

B) There was talk a while ago about using HTML messages. I seem to recall that ScriptKitty had a cute interim workaround, but I can't find it now :angry: !

Maybe this is a good opportunity to revisit the idea .. :whistle:

One of my suggestions was to use SplashImage with a screenshot, and worked out well for the person who was asking the question.

Basically my HTML idea is to write the html, then make a temp HTML file and display it as a function. Works for me just fine, you can even do some javascript :whistle:

example:

$line=InputBox("Question", "What do you want to show in the popup?"&@crlf&"HTML code ok", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)
If StringLen($line)<1 Then $line=clipget()
$color="#00FF66"
htmlshow($color,$line)
MsgBox(1,"Close","")
FileDelete(@ScriptDir &"\test.html")

Func htmlshow($color,$line)
AutoItSetOption("WinWaitDelay", 0)
$title="My AutoIt3 Status"
$file = FileOpen("test.html", 2)
If $file = -1 Then
     MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
     Exit
EndIf
FileWriteLine($file, "<title>My AutoIt3 Status</title>"& @CRLF)
FileWriteLine($file, "<body bgcolor="& $color &">" & @CRLF)
FileWriteLine($file, $line & @CRLF)
FileClose($file)
Run("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE -k "& @ScriptDir &"\test.html","",@SW_HIDE)
WinWait ( $title, "") 
WinMove ( $title, "", 1, 1, 400, 400) 
WinShow ($title, "", @SW_RESTORE) 
EndFunc

Very cool, I like it! :whistle:

My only suggestion would be to have it automatically close the window when finished:

$line=InputBox("Question", "What do you want to show in the popup?"&@crlf&"HTML code ok", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)
If StringLen($line)<1 Then $line=clipget()
$title="My AutoIt3 Status"
$color="#00FF66"
htmlshow($color,$line)
While 1
  If MsgBox(1,"Close","") <> 1 Then
    Sleep(1000)
  Else
    WinClose($title)
    ExitLoop
  EndIf
Wend
FileDelete(@ScriptDir &"\test.html")
Exit

Func htmlshow($color,$line)
  AutoItSetOption("WinWaitDelay", 0)
  $file = FileOpen("test.html", 2)
  If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
  EndIf
  FileWriteLine($file, "<title>My AutoIt3 Status</title>"& @CRLF)
  FileWriteLine($file, "<body bgcolor="& $color &">" & @CRLF)
  FileWriteLine($file, $line & @CRLF)
  FileClose($file)
  Run("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE -k "& @ScriptDir &"\test.html","",@SW_HIDE)
  WinWait ( $title, "")
  WinMove ( $title, "", 1, 1, 400, 400)
  WinShow ($title, "", @SW_RESTORE)
EndFunc
