Edit Box Colours

16 posts in this topic

Hello, Today I have a new question about edit box control, please look at the image below:

post-89462-0-31115300-1425292947_thumb.p

I want the colors as specified for each event....

Code for the edit box:

$output_terminal = GUICtrlCreateEdit("[INFO] Welcome to the Developer Console" & @CRLF,0,285,546,124,2048,-1)

Code for the function which is used by the whole program:

Func SendEvent($type, $msg)
    If $type = 0 Then $type = '[OKAY] '
    If $type = 1 Then $type = '[EROR] '
    If $type = 2 Then $type = '[WARN] '
    If $type = 3 Then $type = '[INFO] '
    GUICtrlSetData($output_terminal, $type & $msg & @CRLF, 1)
EndFunc

Thanks in advance :)

TheDcoder,

If you want different colours for each line type then you will need a RichEdit control. :)

Or you can use multiple labels and scroll. Here is an example script showing how you can do this - you need my Scrollbars UDF: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

#Include <GuiScrollBars_Ex.au3>

Global $iLines = 50 ; Number of items in GUI

; Create GUI
$hGUI = GUICreate("Scroll Colour Line List", 400, 400)

; Create "list" with coloured lines
For $i = 0 To $iLines - 1
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("This is line " & $i, 10, 10 + ($i * 20), 380, 20)
    GUICtrlSetColor(-1, Random(0, 0xFFFFFF, 1))
Next

GUISetState()

; Generate scrollbars
_GUIScrollbars_Generate($hGui, 0, 4 + ($iLines * 20)) ; Just this one line is all you need to get scrollbars !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

TheDcoder,

Feeling lazy today? :whistle:

Go look at the RichEdit examples in the Help file and come back if you have problems. :)

There is a small glitch in your _GUICtrlRichEdit_WriteLine Function, It does not accept @CRLF

here is my line of code:

_GUICtrlRichEdit_WriteLine($output_terminal, $type & $msg & @CRLF, 0, "", $colour)

TheDcoder,

 

It does not accept @CRLF

Seeing as the example script to which I linked uses @CRLF in every call to the function without any difficulty, I find that a little hard to believe. ;)

My GUICreateOutputTerminal function: (Used to create Terminal)

Func GUICreateOutputTerminal()
    $return = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($main_GUI, "", 0, 285, 546, 124, $ES_READONLY)
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetFont($return, Default, "Consolas")
    Local $RGB[3]
    $RGB[0] = 0
    $RGB[1] = 0
    $RGB[2] = 0
    $colour = _ColorSetCOLORREF($RGB)
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetBkColor($return, $colour)
    Return $return
EndFunc ;= OutputTerminal

My SendEvent funtion: (Used to send events with ease)

Func SendEvent($type, $msg)
    Local $colour
    If $type = 0 Then
        $type = '[OKAY] '
        $colour = 0x00FF000
    ElseIf $type = 1 Then
        $type = '[EROR] '
        $colour = 0xFF0000
    ElseIf $type = 2 Then
        $type = '[WARN] '
        $colour = 0xFFFF00
    ElseIf $type = 3 Then
        $type = '[INFO] '
        $colour = 0x4545FF
    EndIf
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_WriteLine($output_terminal, $type & $msg & @CRLF, 0, "", $colour)
EndFunc ;= SendEvent

 

Your _GUICtrlRichEdit_WriteLine function: (Your function)

Func _GUICtrlRichEdit_WriteLine($hWnd, $sText, $iIncrement = 0, $sAttrib = "", $iColor = -1)

    ; Count the @CRLFs
    StringReplace(_GUICtrlRichEdit_GetText($hWnd, True), @CRLF, "")
    Local $iLines = @extended
    ; Adjust the text char count to account for the @CRLFs
    Local $iEndPoint = _GUICtrlRichEdit_GetTextLength($hWnd, True, True) - $iLines
    ; Add new text
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($hWnd, $sText & @CRLF)
    ; Select text between old and new end points
    _GuiCtrlRichEdit_SetSel($hWnd, $iEndPoint, -1)
    ; Convert colour from RGB to BGR
    $iColor = Hex($iColor, 6)
    $iColor = '0x' & StringMid($iColor, 5, 2) & StringMid($iColor, 3, 2) & StringMid($iColor, 1, 2)
    ; Set colour
    If $iColor <> -1 Then _GuiCtrlRichEdit_SetCharColor($hWnd, $iColor)
    ; Set size
    If $iIncrement <> 0 Then _GUICtrlRichEdit_ChangeFontSize($hWnd, $iIncrement)
    ; Set weight
    If $sAttrib <> "" Then _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetCharAttributes($hWnd, $sAttrib)
    ; Clear selection
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_Deselect($hWnd)

EndFunc

What do you think is wrong :unsure:?

TheDcoder,

No idea from those snippets - I have no idea how they all fit together as neither of the first two appear to have any relationship to each other. :wacko:

Post the whole script and I might be able to offer an suggestion. ;)

The first one is my function to send events to the terminal & the second is to create the terminal

Can I PM you the whole script? b/c I don't want others who are using my software can get the source code..

TheDcoder,

That was easy - you need to add the $ES_MULTILINE style to your RichEdit control so that it recognises @CRLF. ;)

Thanks :thumbsup:, but why did you not recognize the error by looking at the code for GUICreateOutputTerminal function :blink:

TheDcoder,

In a perfect world I might well have done so - but I did not. Besides, I find it much easier to deal with whole scripts so that I can run them and see what happens - that way I can adjust things as I go along to confirm that I am on the right track (or not!). Debugging is an art, not an exact science, and I prefer seeing the whole picture. ;)

Now after adding $ES_MULTILINE, its adding an extra @CRLF for me.... (Fixed this by removing @CRLF in the SendEvent function)
