Issue with read only edit box

3 posts in this topic

Basically I'm trying to create a read only edit box to be used as a log output in my GUI.

#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 

mainGui()

Func mainGui()
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$mqInputGUI = GUICreate("MQ Input Scenario", 623, 814, 192, 122)
$fileMenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu('&File')
$fileMenuLoad = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem('Load Scenario', $fileMenu)
$fileMenuSave = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem('Save Scenario', $fileMenu)
$treeView1 = _GUICtrlTreeView_Create($mqInputGUI, 248, 16, 361, 433)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$addNewButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add New Item", 16, 40, 209, 49)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$removeButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove Selected Item", 16, 120, 209, 49)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$logging = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Logging", 16, 464, 593, 329)
$loggingEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 32, 488, 561, 289)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$moveUpButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Move Up", 16, 200, 209, 49)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$moveDownButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Move Down", 16, 280, 209, 49)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$logging = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Logging", 16, 464, 593, 329)
$loggingEdit = _GUICtrlEdit_Create($mqInputGUI, "", 32, 488, 561, 289, BITOR($ES_NOHIDESEL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $WS_HSCROLL, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_MULTILINE, $ES_READONLY))
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
_GUICtrlEdit_InsertText($loggingEdit, 'Testing...')
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$startScenarioButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start Scenario", 16, 360, 209, 49)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1) ; Use advancedparameter to get array
Switch $nMsg[1] ; check which GUI sent message
Case $mqInputGUI
Switch $nMsg[0] ; now check for the messages to $mqInputGui only
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
EndSwitch
EndSwitch
WEnd
EndFunc

What is actually happening though is that when I click on the edit box it hides anything that is currently in there and lets me start typing.

Is there something that I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

You have created 2 edit controls in the same location on the GUI, and 2 group controls as well, fix that and see if it works better.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
