Path for a program that selects its textbox automatically

4 posts in this topic

I have a program that has a bug. It has a textbox that whenever you write in there it automatically selects all of its content at a random time. So what is happening that when I write in that textbox in the middle of the writing its selects every thing and the next character I press it deletes everything =\

Im new to autoit so please help me to write a code that will recognize when the text is selected and just puts the cursor at the end of the text.

IlyaMichlin,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

It sounds to me as if the problem comes from the fact that the app leaves all the text in the "textbox" selected. So I suggest that you recode the script to "deselect" the content after it has done whatever it needs to do. But we could offer more focused help if you posted the code in question. Please use Code tags when you do - put [autoit] before and [/autoit] after your posted code - then you get it displayed in a scrolling box with syntax highlighting. ;)

IlyaMichlin,

A good lesson there - if you explain your problem in full from the beginning then we do not waste time asking questions. ;)

What is this app that so unpleasantly highlights the text at random intervals? If you use the Window Info Tool ("Your_AutoIt_PathAu3Info.exe") what does it tell you about the edit control into which you are typing? :huh:

If the app uses the standard Windows API then we can perhaps look at regular intervals to detect whenever the text is highlighted (highlit?) and, if it is, move the cursor to the end of the text. But we need to know what we are dealing with first, so over to you for some more information. :)
