Doubt on GuiCtrlCreateInptu()?

5 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 in GuiCtrlCreateInptu() we can allow only to type numeric values by using Control Style appendix "$ES_NUMBER, similar to that do we have any control to allow only to type alphabets?


Thank you,Regards,[font="Garamond"][size="4"]K.Syed Ibrahim.[/size][/font]

Syed23,

You will have to create your own function - perhaps along these lines: ;)

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

Global $fTip = False

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUISetState()

$aPos = WinGetPos(GUICtrlGetHandle($cInput))

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "_WM_COMMAND")

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

    If $fTip Then
        ToolTip("Only alphabetic character allowed!", $aPos[0] + 5, $aPos[1] + 15)
        Sleep(1000)
        ToolTip("")
        $fTip = False
    EndIf
WEnd

Func _WM_COMMAND($hWHnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    If _WinAPI_HiWord($wParam) = $EN_CHANGE And _WinAPI_LoWord($wParam) = $cInput Then
        $sText = GUICtrlRead($cInput)
        If StringRegExp($sText, "(?i)[^a-z]") Then
            $sText = StringRegExpReplace($sText, "(?i)[^a-z]", "")
            GUICtrlSetData($cInput, $sText)
            $fTip = True
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>WM_COMMAND
Please ask if you have any questions. :)

Syed23,

The $ES_NUMBER style is a Windows feature, nothing to do with AutoIt - that is why you need all the additional code to make it work. So we cannot just "add" it - the coder has to do that when required. ;)
