Underline character on button label

Recommended Posts

On a daily basis, I use a proprietary HIS (Hospital Information System) knonw as Meditech.  On some of their screens, they have buttons like this;

When you hit the F8 key, the buttons will change and the hotkey gets identified as shown below;

post-4264-0-88235500-1395348640_thumb.jp

I would like to mimic this action with some GUI's that I have developed using AutoIT, but I can't figure out how to get the underline character to show up on the letter I want to be the hotkey.  Actually, if I could just figure out how to make the first character of the button label be underlined, that would suffice for now.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

EDIT:

from helpfile GUICtrlCreateButton()

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 300, 200)

    ; Create a button control.
    Local $idNotepad = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Notepad", 120, 170, 85, 25)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 210, 170, 85, 25)

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    Local $iPID = 0

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $idClose
                ExitLoop

            Case $idNotepad
                ; Run Notepad with the window maximized.
                $iPID = Run("notepad.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)

        EndSwitch
    WEnd

    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
    GUIDelete($hGUI)

    ; Close the Notepad process using the PID returned by Run.
    If $iPID Then ProcessClose($iPID)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

but change this:

Local $idNotepad = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Run Notepad", 120, 170, 85, 25)
    Local $idClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Close", 210, 170, 85, 25)

I mean use & char.

      I use SetSoundDevice to control my audio devices but the UI was either
       
      blurry like this:
      or unusable like this:

      so I made this horrible thing to add scaling to the GUI:

      And now it looks good: 
      but it doesn't work on everything, for example the "GUICtrlCreateLabel("Output type: ", 30, 130, 65, 20) ;, $SS_RIGHT)" (from the autoit3wrapper gui)
      because the comment contains a parenthesis and it would break completely if there were variables as parameters..
      Is there some kind of parser around that I could use instead or maybe someone who has already done something like this?

      Hey Guys,
      I want to add a new checkbox with its own variable every time the add button is clicked.
      The added checkboxes should remain when I close the window or exit the script and when I reopen I should be able to add new checkboxes aswell.
      here is what I have so far..
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <GuiButton.au3> $test = GUICreate("adding test", 475, 345, 500, 175) $Check1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 1", 15, 25, 300, 25) $Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add", 365, 25, 90, 20) $Check2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 2", 15, 50, 300, 25) $Check3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox 3", 15, 75, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check2, $GUI_HIDE) GUICtrlSetState($Check3, $GUI_HIDE) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ; Exit Case $Button GUICtrlSetPos($Check2, 15, 50, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check2, $GUI_SHOW) Case $Button GUICtrlSetPos($Check3, 15, 75, 300, 25) GUICtrlSetState($Check3, $GUI_SHOW) EndSwitch WEnd

      Hello Everyone,
      Hoping someone can help me,
      I am totally stuck on this problem,

      I cannot reach the textarea and the button in a maps page that I get by clicking on a button in a previus page, the only way I can interact with this is using tab and mouseclick but this is a danger method as  you know.

      I get the handle by using: $Posizione = _IEAttach("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")

      then I tried a lot of things but nothing works, can someone give me a hint?
      --------------------
      WinWait("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")
      sleep(1000)
      $Posizione = _IEAttach("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")
      WinSetState ("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE  )
      WinActivate("Ricerca Indirizzo su mappa")
      sleep(500)
      ;~ $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($Posizione, "form1");Punta il Form
      $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($Posizione,"indirizzo")
      $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($Posizione,"writeAddress")

      ;~ $LenteTestoMess = _IEFormElementGetValue($oText);Inserisce il PrimoRepertorio nella variabile
      ;~ _IELinkClickByText($Posizione, $oForm);Clicca su Aggiorna ed invia il form
      _IEFormElementSetValue ($oText,"via Ravenna 12" );Completamento campo testo

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks
