I'm going to be getting text from a web server, and i'll receive something like: <font color="green">Username:</font> string for message

Anyway, i wanna i wanna string replace the font tags, and make the actual text "Username" green when its displayed, but idk how to change colors.

It will also be in an edit box "GuiCtrlCreateEdit"

Can someone tell me how to make certain text green?

you could either create an array with the hex color and assign the word to a number


Dim $color_array[3]

$color_array[0] = 0x00FF00

$color_array[1] = 0x0000FF

$color_array[2] = 0xFF0000


a better way to write the array:

Local $color_array[3] = [0x00FF00,0x0000FF,0xFF0000]

*end edit*

then get your text from the web page and search for the color

if $color = "green" then

$i = 0

elseif $color = "blue" then

$i = 1

elseif $color = "red" then

$i = 2


then you can use

GUICtrlSetColor($Handle_to_Text, $color_array[$i])

Here you go :

#include <Array.au3>

ConsoleWrite("red: " & _HTMLColorToHex("red") & @CRLF) ;decimal
ConsoleWrite("red: 0x" & Hex(_HTMLColorToHex("red"), 6) & @CRLF) ;hex

;the hex color written in the array is converted to decimal

Func _HTMLColorToHex($sHTMLColorToHex_HTMLColor)
Local $aHTMLColorToHex_Color[3][2] = [ _ ;Don't forget to edit the size of the array
[0xFF0000, "red"], _
[0xFFFFFF, "white"], _
[0x000000, "black"]] ;and so on

Local $iHTMLColorToHex_ColorIndex = _ArraySearch($aHTMLColorToHex_Color, $sHTMLColorToHex_HTMLColor, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1)

If $iHTMLColorToHex_ColorIndex <> -1 Then
Return $aHTMLColorToHex_Color[$iHTMLColorToHex_ColorIndex][0]
Return -1
EndFunc   ;==>_HTMLColorToHex

Br, FireFox.

Can someone tell me how to make certain text green?

Just making certain text of specific color is not possible in Edit controls

U should use RichEdit controls

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.
