Edit control - increase the column number

Recommended Posts


I have an edit control were I can set the number of characters that can be hold in general but when it comes to increase the number of columns (characters per line) of that control I have difficulties finding a work around... any help would be greattly appreciated. Default characters per line an edit can hold is 1024 after that the control performs automatically a line break, all this is on AutoIt v3.2.12.1.

Why don't you grade up to the most current version

You won't get help for such an old version.

I agree entirely with water about updating. Version was released in June 2008 - nearly 5 1/2 years ago! I think that of the long-term members only Zedna still uses that version so unless he pops in you are very unlikely to get any help for questions specifically relating to it. ;)

Why on earth are you still using such an old version anyway? Do you not want to profit from the massive enhancements to the language that have occurred since then? :huh:

But your current problem is a Windows limitation and not an Autoit one - as I explained here. :(
