Prevent an Edit control from being manually edited

7 posts in this topic

I have tried disabling it (GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE) it), but I can't scroll down.

What I want to do is make the user not able to edit it manually. He/she will just be able to copy the content and use the scrollbars.

The content will be set from the script. How can I do this without disabling the control, or is there a way to enable scrolling while the control is disabled?

Hm, I just noticed that when I use the $ES_READONLY style it disables the vertical scrollbar (does it matter having the horizontal scrollbar disabled?)

Maybe this?

;edit ctrl style

BitOR($ES_READONLY, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL) ;scroll bar not visible
BitOR($ES_READONLY, $WS_HSCROLL) ;scroll bar visible

Br, FireFox.

Yeah it works, I used GUICtrlSetStyle(-1, BitOR($ES_READONLY, $WS_VSCROLL)) and it worked fine. Thanks!
