I am playing with ScintillaNet edit control in vb.net. After a lot of failure, i successuly made an edit control with AutoIt syntax lexer. But i can't change the font and font size programatically. Any idea ?
It seems that ControlSetText() sends only the first character to Scintilla controls.
To see this, try the following:
Open a SciTE window
Put the following line into the window
ControlSetText("[CLASS:SciTEWindow]","","[CLASS:Scintilla;Instance:1]", 'here is some text') and save the file.
Go to the beginning of the line.
Hit F5 to run the line.
What I see is that the single letter h overwrites the text in the window instead of the desired text.
Does anyone know how to get the Scintilla control to play nice? If not, is this a bug I should be reporting to the Autoit folks?
I would like to avoid ControlSend(), because it has trouble with Unicode.
Thanks for any tips.
--- original post ---
In an AutoIt script, I use ControlSetText() to send text to the Command window in the Stata statistical package.
In Stata 14, the Command window was changed to a Scintilla control which understands Unicode instead of a RichText control (which used Latin1 encoding). In the past, all worked well, now only the first character gets put in the control.
Here is an example which illustrates how it worked and now fails (which requires a running Stata 13 and a running Stata 14):
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1) ## in Stata 13 and earlier, the Command window was a RichText control ControlSetText("Stata/MP 13","","[CLASS:RichEdit20A;Instance:1]", "sysuse auto") ## result: 'sysuse auto' in the Command window ## in Stata 14, the Command window is a Scintilla control ControlSetText("Stata/MP 14","","[CLASS:Scintilla;Instance:1]", "sysuse auto") ## result: the letter 's' in the Command window I can use ControlSend() to send plain text successfully, but I'm betting it won't work properly with Unicode because the function is not Unicode-ready, yet.
Any hints about what I need to do to fix the problem?
I realize this is somewhat specialized because of the receiving software, but perhaps someone knows something about sending text to Scintilla Unicode-friendly controls.
Thanks for any help.
