GUICtrlRead returns nothing for GUICtrlCreateEdit

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

As the name suggests, GUICtrlRead seems to return nothing. I hope I'm missing something simple. This is a quick GUI I've put together to demonstrate the problem. The msgbox comes up blank. Any help is greatly appreciated.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
GUICreate("",500,500)
$edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("",10,10,100,100)
$accept = GUICtrlCreateButton("accept",200,200)
$input = GUICtrlRead($edit)
GUISetState(@sw_show)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "close")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($accept, "accept")
while(1)
   sleep(100)
   WEnd
  
   func close()
   Exit
   EndFunc
  
   Func accept()
   MsgBox(4096,"",$input)
   EndFunc

Please tell me if you need any more information

CptSpike,

How about reading the control as you press the button rather than just after its creation - when there is nothing in it to read? ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

GUICreate("", 500, 500)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "close")

$edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 100, 100)
$accept = GUICtrlCreateButton("accept", 200, 200)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($accept, "accept")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While (1)
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func close()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>close

Func accept()
    $input = GUICtrlRead($edit) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    MsgBox(4096, "", $input)
EndFunc   ;==>accept
