Replacing string selected in Edit control

Recommended Posts

GordonFreeman

Hi guys. I trying find the best way to replace a selected string in edit when click in a button. I want by example, if test is selected and i click in replace test will transform in <b>test</b>.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 149, 192, 124)
$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 8, 193, 105)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Only a test edit control")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Replace", 136, 120, 65, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Look at the Edit UDF functions for reading the selected text and then use StringReplace().

GordonFreeman,

It should have taken you 5 seconds to work this out.

$sSelString = StringMid(_GUICtrlEdit_GetText($Edit1), $sSelection[0] + 1, $sSelection[1] - $sSelection[0])

Well, I had tested like this, but was giving a wrong string, then tested it in other ways.

Thanks to all

now looks nice

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Replace", 136, 120, 65, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            _TAG("<b>","</b>",$Edit1)

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _TAG($sOpenTag,$sCloseTag,$hEdit)

$sSelPos = _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel($hEdit)

$sSelString = StringMid(_GUICtrlEdit_GetText($hEdit), $sSelPos[0] + 1, $sSelPos[1] - $sSelPos[0])

_GUICtrlEdit_ReplaceSel($Edit1, $sOpenTag & $sSelString & $sCloseTag)

EndFunc;_TAG

Well, please be careful in your testing methods in the future then. Try not to be too quick to post something doesn't work until you have tried all scenarios beforehand. This is crucial to developing your skills as a good coder.
