Move focus to new inputbox when the old one if full

Recommended Posts

Tjalve

Hi there. Im creating a simple GUI with a form. In this GUI there are several inputs And for now you need to switch to the next inputbox with TAB or the mouse. What i would like to to is to make the form switch focus to the next inputbox when a numer of chars is inserted. So when i have typed 5 chars into the first inputboxm the markes moves to the next inputbox and so on. is there anyway to do that?

Im trying to implement your solution, but i dont really understand the code. And when i just try a simple copy paste and change the variables to the viribles i have in my GUI and then call the function (_WM_COMMAND)

I get the error message:

Variable used without being declared.:

GUICtrlSetState($hbutton, $GUI_DISABLE)

And as far as i can see, you havent decklared the $hbutton varible anywhere in your function and the other $hbutton declaration is not a global, so i dont understand how this is suposed to work? :P

Sorry. But any help would be appritiated.

Tjalve,

Do you understand how GUIRegisterMsg works? If not I recommend this tutorial in the Wiki. :)

If you posted the code you are trying to use I could offer more help - trying to determine why you have an undeclared variable without the code is likely to be a very long process and my crystal ball is at the polishers for its annual clean this weekend. ;)

Obviously you can't just cut and paste the code into your script without adjusting the variables and controls it's referencing. You have to MAKE it work with your code as it's just an example to demonstrate how to do it.


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.
