Edit box indent and color

4 posts in this topic

Herroo!

I have two questions that I couldn't find the answer to after searching.

1. How do I indent (right,left, up, and down) the text inside an editbox? I couldn't find anything in the help files.

2. Is it possible to have multiple text colors in a single editbox? I know that GUICtrlSetColor() will change the color of the text inside an editbox but I am looking to have multiple colors in a single line. For example, the default color is white. Then I want one word in that sentence red and another orange. (Hello, my name is John)

As far as I know it is not possible to achieve it with an edit control but using the RichtTextFormat it should be possible.

Look in the help file to find more information about RTF.

Excellent! My help files aren't really returning the searches I am expecting. Been having some problems with help files in general as well. Thank you for the example! :)

Also thank you for the two links in your sig! Will probably be using those as well once I am done with all the main functions of my script.
