GUICtrlCreateInput detects Enter key

Recommended Posts


How do you detect user press Enter key at the the end of the line and set action by content of it ?

I have my gui with GUICtrlCreateInput on it . So far it is working ok by user type in control and click the button , but I would like to set it so user type in , press Enter key at the end of that line . The script then detect that , read content of input control then process

I just found it a way go around by set my button to default button with GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DEFBUTTON).

But just curious , if I have more than one edit control in GUI , how to find out which edit control user just type in , press Enter at the end ?

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>


Func Example()
    Local $iInput, $iENTER, $msg

    GUICreate(" My GUI input acceptfile", 320, 120, @DesktopWidth / 2 - 160, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 45)
    $iInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 5, 300, 20)

    $iENTER = GUICtrlCreateDummy()
    Dim $AccelKeys[1][2] = [["{ENTER}", $iENTER]]; Set accelerators


    $msg = 0
    While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
            Case $msg = $iENTER
                MsgBox(4096, "Test", "[Enter] key is detected!")
