Problem with Pop Up Gui and _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create

Recommended Posts

Good day to the autoit community.

I am having an issue with the _GUICtrlRichEdit on a pop-up gui box. I have cobbled a short script together that replicates the issue. Simply run the script and click the button for the pop-up gui with the richedit box. If you close the pop-up gui and re-click the button, the richedit box fails to load on subsequent pop-up gui launches.
 

#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("hubconsole", 655, 697)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form1_1Close")
$gethubbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Get Info", 501, 129, 81, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Main")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Func Form1_1Close()
exit
EndFunc

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Main()
    Local $hGui, $hRichEdit, $iMsg
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, 4) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1)
    global $richgui = $hGui
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form2_1Close")
    global $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 220, _
            BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL))
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($hRichEdit, @CR & "This is more text")
    GUISetState()

EndFunc

    Func Form2_1Close()
        _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($hRichEdit) ; needed unless script crashes
        GUIDelete($richgui)
    EndFunc

 

Some further information from diagnostic:
The first cycle around shows no @error's for the deconstructor Form2_1Close().. so the richedit destroy and guidelete both happen.
When I click the button for the second launch, I see the pop-up gui has a new HWnd.. example: 1st click (0x00514B6) 2nd click (0x000614B6)
on the line    " global $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui...  " I see value to @error of 1 which isn't detailed in the helpfile of the function, but if I dig into the include I see error 1 gets set when:  If Not _WinAPI_IsClassName($hWnd, $_GRE_sRTFClassName) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) ; Invalid Window handle for _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create 1st parameter

I'm stuck at this point as I can't figure why "_WinAPI_IsClassName($hWnd, $_GRE_sRTFClassName" comes back with a failure on subsequent launches of the popup.

Maybe try to remove the Local and Global declarations of $hRichEdit and then declare it as global at the top of the script, outside a func

Thanks for the suggestion. No luck unfortunately:

Pasting partial sample showing the modified code. Everything else is same as example in 1st post:

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("hubconsole", 655, 697)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form1_1Close")
$gethubbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Get Hub Info", 501, 129, 81, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Main")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
global $richgui, $hRichEdit

Func Form1_1Close()
exit
EndFunc

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Main()
    Local $hGui, $hRichEdit, $iMsg
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, 4) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1)
    $richgui = $hGui
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form2_1Close")
    $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 220, _
            BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL))
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($hRichEdit, @CR & "This is more text")
    GUISetState()

EndFunc

Thanks, I removed the line "Local $hGui, $hRichEdit, $iMsg" from the script.

Same Behavior unfortunately

Func Main()
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, 4) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1)
    $richgui = $hGui
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form2_1Close")
    $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 220, _
            BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL))
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($hRichEdit, @CR & "This is more text")
    GUISetState()

EndFunc

Is this a bug with _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create?
Can anybody shed some light on what maybe "_WinAPI_IsClassName($hWnd, $_GRE_sRTFClassName"  is doing or why the gui somehow changes that value on multiple launch?

Thanks

No bug, this works for me without issue :

#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $hGui, $hRichEdit

$Form1_1 = GUICreate("hubconsole", 655, 697)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form1_1Close")
$gethubbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Get Info", 501, 129, 81, 25)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Main")
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Main()
    $hGui = GUICreate("Example (" & StringTrimRight(@ScriptName, 4) & ")", 320, 350, -1, -1)
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form2_1Close")
    $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "This is a test.", 10, 10, 300, 220, _
        BitOR($ES_MULTILINE, $WS_VSCROLL, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL))
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendText($hRichEdit, @CR & "This is more text")
    GUISetState()
    ; msgbox(0,"", "gui : " & $hGui &@crlf& "richedit : " & $hRichEdit)
EndFunc

Func Form1_1Close()
    exit
EndFunc

Func Form2_1Close()
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_Destroy($hRichEdit) ; needed unless script crashes
    GUIDelete($hGui)
    ; msgbox(0,"", "gui : " & $hGui &@crlf& "richedit : " & $hRichEdit)
EndFunc

I ran the code Mikell posted and it works fine for me using AutoIt 3.3.12.0.

You're running an older version of AutoIt, you have probably run into a bug that was in the _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create function that was fixed in later versions.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

THANK YOU!!!!

I had searched the forums before but did not see the bug post the first scan through. This was in fact a problem with using an older autoit engine (Couldn't be helped in this project).
Relevant bug post found here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/139788-unexpected-result-in-_guictrlrichedit_create/

Based on the information I found on that bug post I have modified _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create to manually resolve the issue for this project.

      Hello eveyone,
      I installed the latest version of Autoit (x86 - for greater compatibility) and SciTE.
      Every time I want to generate the GUI code designed in Koda, the program freezes (only Koda, not SciTE).
      Have you ever had this problem? Do you know how to fix it?
      Thanks!

      Update: Download the latest version here.
      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.
