You will need to explain more about what it is you're trying to do because I can't figure out what you want to do with the text file or its contents. Also, you have no where in you code to put the contents of the file if that was you intention.


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.

not sure what you are trying to do? are you trying to post the data that is in your text file into the gui?

@nitekram yes that is what I'm trying to do. Very unsure how I would go about doing that though.

Something like that here?

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

Global $file = FileOpen("test.txt")
$hGUI = GUICreate("Disclaimer", 500, 400, -1, -1, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI,$WS_SIZEBOX,$WS_THICKFRAME)) ;Creates the GUI window
$iEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit(FileRead($file, 400), 0, 0, 500, 400)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1, 0xFFFFFF)
ControlClick($hGUI, "", $iEdit)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Shows the GUI window
FileClose($file)

Do
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            GUIDelete()
            Exit
    EndSwitch
Until False

Is there anyway I can make the GUI window variably sized to the lines and word count of the text file?

Normally you should see scrollbars where you can scroll the text. Further you can activate window resizing.

Just check out post#5.

      I am struggling with activating the 2nd GUI.  References of https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Managing_Multiple_GUIs did not help.
      Gui2 and controls are created, but the buttons are not active.  I have tried to remove extra code.

      Hey Guys,
      Maybe you can help me with something small.
      It is not terrible but it slows down my script and after a while even crash the script.

      First i explain what i have;
      I have a GUI with a lot of GUICtrlCreateInput controls, lets say 600 pieces.
      All the controls are hidden when the GUI is displayed, i have 3 buttons attached to 200 pieces each.
      When i press button-1 the first 200 controls are showed,
      When i press button-2 the first 200 controls are hidden and the next 200 controls are showed,
      etc, etc.
      This is working perfectly but after a while the GUI is getting slower and slower.
      After a while the controls aren't responding anymore and the script crashes.
      When i compile the script to 64-Bits version the speed is a lot better but you can still see the script slowing down each time i use the buttons.
      I think there has to be a buffer somewhere that is filling each time i show and hide the controls, but how can i clear that buffer without restarting the script?
      Deleting and re-creating the controls didn't help, deleting the entire gui (and controls) and re-creating it didn't help also.
      The only thing that is working is restarting the script.

      Thanks guys!

      PS: If you need a working example i can add it to this topic, just let me know. It is not rocket science, i just create the controls and show/hide them with a while loop and 3 buttons.

      ProxAllium
      ProxAllium is a GUI frontend to Tor, it aims to make the usage of Tor easier by directly exposing its SOCK5 proxy which can be used to access the Tor network. The GUI is designed to be simple and user-friendly and it has a few other features... namely:
      Fully portable - doesn't write outside its own directory Integrated with Tor via the controller interface and properly communicates with it Minimize to tray Option to start with Windows Interface to configure bridges if Tor is censored in your region Many customization options are available via the config.ini file Screenshots:
      The code is made with pure AutoIt, is fully open source and you are free to adapt it to your needs
      The GitHub repository hosts all the releases and code. As a bonus it has a somewhat sparsely documented Tor UDF which can be used to control Tor, the code also demonstrates the proper usage of my Process UDF which might be interesting if you want to deal with processes.
       
      As some of my friends know, I no longer use Windows as my main operating system. I switched to Linux a few months back as my primary operating system and haven't looked back since. Unfortunately that meant I could no longer use my own program due to it being Windows only... after a few months of playing around with C and making a basic program, I have decided to rewrite all of ProxAllium into C and make it cross-platform. Sadly this means that the AutoIt version of ProxAllium will not receive any major updates now.
      Let me know if this is something you guys would use, I used it daily with my IRC client to connect via Tor (to protect my I.P). I hope you enjoy using my program!

      Hi, when I call a MsgBox function I can use a "$MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION" flag so it will be displayed "on the current active desktop, even if there is no user logged on to the computer.". That works just great. Is there a way to do the same to Autoit GUI Form so it will be visible on desktop even if running from system account and user is not logged?

      I do have one autoit script file with multiple functions.
      p.e.
       
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <String.au3> #include <GuiButton.au3> #include <Constants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <Misc.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <HotString.au3> Func ACase() $Form4=GUICreate("ACase", 100, 195, 290, 142) etc etc GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Form4) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE SUB_Write2ini(....) ;I write a few things in an ini file Case $a Case $b etc EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc Func BCase() $Form5=GUICreate("BCase", 100, 195, 290, 142) etc etc GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $Form5) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE SUB_Write2ini(....) ;I write a few things in an ini file Case $a Case $b etc EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc When I activate the 1st function (ACase), using a shortcut and the 2nd function (BCase) (with a different shortcut) and I click on a button in whatever of these 2 Gui's, I can't use the other Gui anymore. It doesn't do the right thing as if autoit only remembers the Gui I first used.
      What did I wrong? How can I let autoit know which GUI is active and to connect to the function of that Gui?
      Hope I made myself clear.
