GUICtrlRead mistake

5 posts in this topic

Ok,

I'm sure this is something I'm missing, but I am going to ask so I can get this moving in the right direction. I've created a tabbed form which would take input from a user and write that input to a html form locally and eventually also push that data to another website elsewhere. That part shouldn't be a big deal, but I'm having a problem with GUICtrlRead and it only giving me what I'm guessing is the ID number of the input. Here's abbreviated code for clarity.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <DateTimeConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <InetConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>

    Local $oMke = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "mke")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oMke, $mke)
EndFunc

If I put anything in the First input box, when I hit Print Preview, it opens the form nicely and inserts 83 in the first text box, rather than anything I've actually put in that field.

I know it has to be simple to get, but it's evading me right now.

Pointing me in the right direction is most appreciated, thanks in advance.

You're reading from the control as soon as you create it, there's nothing in $mke at that point, although I'm not sure why you're using the advanced parameter in there or what it would normally return for an input control.

I was using it because I thought that I needed it. Clarifying that for me is great. Thanks. Ok, if I'm understanding you correctly, I'm missing another step in the process. I need to fix the value as whatever the user will enter, then read that.

That helps me try to think of what to do next.

I love the Avatar. If I may ask, what lodge?

You need to read from the input after someone has put something into it, so usually a button is used to tell the program that you're ready to read from the controls and to send the contents.

Thank you for that! I hadn't paid attention to my old code and I'd done that in something else I'd written a couple of years ago. In fact, I was just explaining it to someone today, so I get the braindead award for that.

It's nice to encounter another brother here. I'm from Independence Lodge #76 in Missouri myself.
