editbox linked to word doc

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

is it possible to have an editbox linked to a word doc?

I have done this using excel and also an ini.. but i get issues with excel (when i try to open another file the read only excel file im pulling the text from opens instead)

Ini works but its only 1 line so i have to seperate lines with spaces (sooooooo annoying)

hoping to have it linked or even just a text file just like ini that supports multi-lineline break

 

OR - Going 1 step further.. is it possible to have an editbox that you can free write in and it will save? and display the saved text .. Like a live, multipler note pad?

(possibly a username and password required so only managers can update the editbox)

Anyone? :(

Local $read = FileRead("Q:\Documents\Load Support\Tom\Projects\Dashboard\asdf.txt")
$MAINUPDATEDISPLAY = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 192, 152, 444, 340, $WS_BORDER)
guictrlsetdata($mainupdatedisplay,$read)
 
Dont worry about the other things such as enter into editbox etc - I managed to accomplish what im after with the above (autoit skills are improving!!!)
 
Im guessing that its not possible to do this with a word document..??

With Rich Edit Controls you can edit RTF files. This files can be processed by MS Word as well.
