You could use Koda (SciTE -> tools), paste the GUI code from your script and import it into Koda. Koda allows to allign controls etc. and generates new AutoIt GUI code for you.

Hi,

2. It would be nice if the text were selected

Maybe this :

#include <GUIEdit.au3>
...
$tbToto = GUICtrlCreateEdit(...)
...
_GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($tbToto, -1, -1)

Br, FireFox.

I'd suggest looking at the help file, as has been suggested to you numerous times, and see how to change the settings of the size of your GUI. Right now, you're using the default size for it.

Also, if you don't want two input boxes then why in the world did you create 2? Create one and done.


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.

1. how do I get just 1 text box

2. how do I get a desktop folder window to open, for example, if the user selects button 1, I need for the folder

"Apacefeatures1active_projects_a-d FEATURES" to open.

3. how do I return the text entered in the text box to a variable

1. how do I get just 1 text box

Don't be dumb, read the code and you will know.

Listen to BrewManNH, this questions are really basics and the helpfile will answer to your questions.

Maybe you don't know the definition of making an effort, even I know learning a new language is difficult.

I am a newbie, I am learning, I copied and pasted, if you dont have the patience to talk to me like a human being then dont reply to my posts. Why do you assume I dont ever go to the help file, my code is copied straight out of the help file to get me started. Please be kind........dude.

sbrady,

to start learning AutoIt can be so easy :graduated:

Melba tells you "Only use 1 GUICtrlCreateInput line". So have a look at the source and you will see that there are two GUICtrlCreateInput lines. Remove the second pne and see what you get.

Step through the source code and try to understand the statements. Read the help file and play around with the parameters.

So: Play and learn.

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) has to be the last statement. Move
$textbox_input = GUICtrlCreateInput("AR123 Smith, Bob", 10, 5, 300, 20)
one line up.
$gui_data = GUICtrlRead($textbox_input)
should be moved into the While/WEnd loop.

sbrady,

Please stop reporting threads where people tell you to read the Help file. You are not being bullied - as I mentioned to you in another thread, given the self-evident lack of effort on your part so far, I am quite frankly amazed that people are still trying to help you. Especially when you appear to ignore much of the advice given to you - did you even read my post above? :huh:

Of the questions you have asked so far in this thread, the majority could have been avoided by you reading the Help file for each of the functions used in your script. For example, the size of the GUI. And as for having 2 input controls - with 2 GUICtrlCreateInput lines surely that is self-evident.

So, please start acting like the intelligent person I am sure you are and start applying some of that intelligence to understanding the code you are using. :)

I am a newbie so please forgive me if you questions upset you.

I have a lot of code and it is almost complete.

my problem is any text entered into the text box does not carry through the script

I know is in line 13 or 14.

$textbox_input

$new_project_name

do I have to update the input box, why would the script not take whatever text is in there and use it.

; GUI create

#include 
#include 
#include 

Example()

Func Example()
Local $Button_1, $Button_2, $Button_3, $Button_4, $Button_5, $Button_6, $Button_7, $Button_8, $msg
GUICreate("My GUI Button") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$textbox_input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 35, 300, 20) ; will not accept drag&drop files
$new_project_name = GUICtrlRead($textbox_input)

Opt("GUICoordMode", 2)
$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(" 1. A-D Features", -200, 30, 120,30, $BS_LEFT)
$Button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton(" 2. E-K Features", -120, 10, 120,30, $BS_LEFT)

You need to read the input box's contents when you press the button, where you have that statement now, it reads it right after it's created and never reads from it again. Copy the line where you're reading the contents, and paste it after every one of your Case statements.


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.
