Output in editbox ?

Recommended Posts

I found this piece of code witch retrieves public info for an IP, but i want this output to be writen in EditBox i have to my Gui.

How this can be done.

this is the code which if you run in SCITE editor puts the info in the console of the SCIITE. What i want is to click a button to put the info in an Editbox on my GUI.


Func _RetrievePublicInfo($iRefresh = 0)

ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "IP: " & BinaryToString(InetRead('http://api.externalip.net/ip/' $iRefresh), 4) & @CRLF & @CRLF & _

"Hostname: " & BinaryToString(InetRead('http://api.externalip.net/hostname/' $iRefresh), 4) & @CRLF)

What you need is GUICtrlSetData and the handle/control ID of your edit control.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

welcome GEXXOS,

make the function return the data instead of writing in the Console,

so store the data in a Variable

Later use the variable for creating your Editbox

for GUI creation and Edit help look at


maybe you are very new

so have patience you will learn it :graduated:

an Example for better understanding [much from the helpfile]

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    Local $myedit, $msg

    GUICreate("My GUI edit") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

;First get the Return Values
$sText = _RetrievePublicInfo()
;Get it assigned in the Editbox
    $myedit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sText, 176, 32, 121, 97, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL)


    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func _RetrievePublicInfo($iRefresh = 0)
    Return @CRLF & "IP: " & BinaryToString(InetRead('http://api.externalip.net/ip/'& $iRefresh), 4) & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
    "Hostname: " & BinaryToString(InetRead('http://api.externalip.net/hostname/'& $iRefresh), 4) & @CRLF
