TheDcoder,

You obviously feel that the extra 3 characters between #include<MsgBox.au3> and #include<ExtMsgBox.au3> are real burden to type - but if you want the functionality you say you do..... ;)

There is a performance benefit of this version of msgbox?  I opted for flexibility with the things that stop my script anyway, and extmsgbox is much more malleable.  See this version that was bastardized with my novice hands.  *and no, i am not recommending you use this, it was just to show you how you are fighting to change 1 thing, when with Melbas solution you can change pretty much everything at will.

Example

#include "ExtMsgBox_Color.au3"

_ExtMsgBox(128, "Mr. Button, can you expand a bit", "Big Button", "Please look at the button", 10 , '' , 0 , 0xFFFFFF, 0xFFFFFF)

ExtMsgBox_Color

@mikell Tip? Please explain...

 

It's just a workaround, you could put a tooltip on the button which might display a long text while the text on the button is short

@Melba23 Also your UDF failed to fit my text's length (@error returns 5)

P.S Also, the text was not "Mr. Button, can you expand a bit?"

TheDcoder,

You may have to increase the size of the ExtMsgBox using _ExtMsgBoxSet - what is the text you to display in the button? :huh:

I changed the width manually, i would totally read my post realizing that if BothThose can manipulate the UDF, anyone can.

What is the text you to display in the button?

This:

$sString = "This is the decoy text, I don't wanna reveal my real string b/c it would not mean anything aka non-scene, and this string is almost as the same length as the original one"

Also thanks for solution :D

TheDcoder,

Here you go: :)

#include <ExtMsgBox.au3>

$sString = "This is the decoy text, I don't wanna reveal my real string b/c it would not mean anything aka non-scene, and this string is almost as the same length as the original one"

; Get the size of the text in pixels
$aSize = _StringSize($sString)
$sStringLen = $aSize[2]

; Now create a blank line at least as long to force the ExtMsgBox to be as wide as required so the button fits
$sBlanker = ""
Do
    $sBlanker &= " "
    $aSize = _StringSize($sBlanker)
Until $aSize[2] > $sStringLen

; Set the max width of the ExtMsgBox to prevent the text from wrapping
_ExtMsgBoxSet(0, Default, Default, Default, Default, Default, $sStringLen + 100)

; And now display the ExtMsgBox with its wide button
_ExtMsgBox(48, $sString, "Test", "Please look at the buttons" & @CRLF & $sBlanker)
Worth typing the extra 3 characters? ;)

TheDcoder,

You had not declared the variable as an array, so simple assignations such as $sBlanker[0] = '' or $sBlanker[1] = $aSize[2] will not work. You either need to declare the array with its size on a separate line - or do as I did and declare it with the defined elements inside [ ] as syntax requires. All clear? :)
