hi there im having trouble with my script coz i want to detect if the input box is empty or not empty so I tried, like this,

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
Local $input = ControlGetText("[CLASS:TFrmMain]", "", "[CLASS:TEdit; INSTANCE:1]")
If $input = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Hey", "Empty")
Elseif not $input = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Hey", "Input Detected...")
EndIf

but my problem is if I enter numbers in the input box like 123, 1, or 55, it can detect the input but if I enter letters like abc, its showing me empty input box...


ill get to that... i still need to learn and understand a lot of codes graduated.gif

ControlGetText returns a string not numbers.

I would use:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>
Local $input = ControlGetText("[CLASS:TFrmMain]", "", "[CLASS:TEdit; INSTANCE:1]")
$input = StringStripWS($input, $STR_STRIPALL)
If $input = "" Then
    MsgBox(0, "Hey", "Empty")
ElseIf $input = "0" Or Number($input) <> 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Hey", "Numeric input Detected...")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Hey", "String input Detected...")
EndIf
