Disabled Editbox WITH color?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey, I know that GUICtrlSetColor() changes the font color inside an editbox and setting the editboxes state to $GUI_DISABLE will disable it from being written used.

My question is... Is there anyway to disable the editbox AND change the font color inside the box? When ever I add the $GUI_DISABLE, it overwrites the color I set the it to (green in this case) and changes it to grey. Is there anyway to bypass this?

Also, is there a way to create padding inside the text box? I think that the text is too close to the border... Is there away to change the spacing from borders?

$wProgram = GUICreate("CraigsList Alert", 306, 210, 545, 295)
$wExecute = GUICtrlCreateButton("Execute", 8, 176, 65, 25)
$wCommand = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 8, 152, 289, 21)
$wConsole = GUICtrlCreateEdit("Welcome", 8, 8, 289, 145, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN))
$wStart   = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 80, 176, 65, 25)
$wFetch   = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fetch Data", 208, 176, 91, 25)


GUICtrlSetBkColor($wConsole, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetBkColor($wCommand, 0x000000)
GUICtrlSetColor($wConsole, 0x80FF00)
GUICtrlSetColor($wCommand, 0x80FF00)
GUICtrlSetState($wConsole, $GUI_DISABLE)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Here is what I am talking about...

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.

Yup that worked, thanks! Now I just need to figure out how to indent WITHOUT adding extra spaces in my strings " (space)blah blah"

Yeeeaaah, that does work along with adding a space but I was hoping there would be another way to do it that didn't involving adding those macros and/or spaces. It would get messy later on. But if those are the only options then its no big deal I guess, it would have made the GUI look nicer but thats not too important.
