8 posts in this topic

I want to have an edit with multiple lines inputtet. Like

GUICtrlSetData($Edit, "123")

*next line in edit*

GUICtrlSetData($Edit, "456")

I already got the $es multiline thingy

From the help file, which you should read.

GUICtrlSetData ( controlID, data [, default] )

default [optional] Combo, List: The default value.

Edit, Input: If non-empty (""), the string is inserted at the current insertion point (caret).

So from reading that I came up with this.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $msg

    GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    Local $hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10)

    GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, "item1" & @CRLF)
    GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, "item2", "put anything here")

    GUISetState() ; will display an empty dialog box with a combo control with focus on

    ; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

        If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

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.

What part of my code doesn't do EXACTLY that? You will just have to adapt what I showed you, about adding text to the edit box without deleting the contents, to whatever code you're using. You need to open your help file, and read it.

does the last Parameter in

GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, "item2", "put anything here")
has to be the last word of what is before? or doesn't it matter? Looking to the help file it is not very clear. But it seems like it doesn't matter.
