Edit - AutoH/VScroll

4 posts in this topic

Try the following script:

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

$Form7326876 = GUICreate("Log", 306, 146, -1, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW,$WS_EX_TOPMOST,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
Global $Edit1231 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 305, 145, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY,$WS_VSCROLL))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

For $i = 1 To 25
    GUICtrlSetData($Edit1231, GUICtrlRead($Edit1231) & @CRLF & $i)
    sleep(100)
Next

Sleep(5000)

Although it has AUTOVSCROLL & AUTHSCROLL attribute, it isn't scrolling automatically. Any idea why and how to solve it?

Neither of those functions actually scroll the edit text automatically unless you hit the enter key or the end of the line.


$ES_AUTOHSCROLL 0x0080 Automatically scrolls text to the right by 10 characters when the user types a character at the end of the line. When the user presses the ENTER key, the control scrolls all text back to the zero position.

$ES_AUTOVSCROLL 0x0040 Scrolls text up one page when the user presses the ENTER key on the last line.

As to how to get it to scroll along with the text being entered, you can try using _GUICtrlEdit_LineScroll to see if that might work.

Glad one of my guesses paid off. :D

BTW, I didn't know about what either of those variables were supposed to do either, so I got to learn something new today too.  :thumbsup:
