Can I <center> text on a label?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this is easily done, but damned if I can find out how in the help file. Took me 30 minutes to find guictrlsetfont to change font size hehe. 

Anyone tell me how to set the text to be centered on the label?

Also, is it possible to center vertically to?

Look at the label styles -> $SS_CENTER + $SS_CENTERIMAGE

Example:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Test")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("This is a test", 10, 10, 300, 80, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE))
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 30)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x808080)
GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Thanks for that. However, I get an error when I do it with that, and am assuming it is because it is an extended style. How do I set an extended style without including a style?

for instance here is my code that is erroring out:

guictrlsetstyle($label, $SS_CENTER)

Leopardfist,

Extended styles are written: $##_EX_###### - so your assumption is wrong. ;)

That code as posted runs fine for me - what error do you get? :huh:

And you might like to read the Setting Styles tutorial in the Wiki to see how you should combine styles - I am afraid UEZ is not using "best practice" there. :(

Edit: I did wonder if it was a missing include - but I still recommend the tutorial. ;)

Shame on me for the lazy version. Edited the code to be "best practice compatible". ;)
