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.

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.

      Hi,
      I have an issue with a script being used for a Toddler group register. 
      I list the kids, with their carer and additional carer in ComboLists so a number of carers can be registered per kid. 
      When page down to a second page of kids, the carers are correctly displayed but when I roll the mouse over the combo boxes it reverts to those on the first page.
      I am using the following style codes with the combo boxes - BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN, $CBS_SIMPLE) and they are only holding 2 or 3 entries.
      Here is the code for the pagedisplay function which is called for each line of the registration page (10 lines, currently 55 kid records)) 
      Func PageDisp($L)
      ;Clears display once all records displayed
          If $L > $KidsFound Then
              $Label2[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel(" ", 75, $v, 280, 29)
              $Label352[$L] = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 1040, $v, 100, 29)

      Hello,
      i searched the forum for something near, but with no success...
      I have Combobox control with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style with some items (for example (one, two, nine).
      When i want to select the item, using keyboard, the items are selected only on First letter base (for example when i type "on", Nine is selected).
      Is there some trick to force the combobox with $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style to accept more than the First letter during selecting the items from the list?
      Mi wanted result is the same as for example - when you type "fir" on the desktop, Firefox is automatically selected.
      Thank you so much.

      Often I need to create a panel to monitor a lot of things (users, files, items etc) so I use this piece of code to create a dynamic grid of buttons.
      The number of buttons is variable, and it's related to the size of the gui. 
      Every "button" is a set of three with a real button stacked on the top of two labels, imagine reading a .CSV file or an array or a database and displaying all the things using the labels (Text and COLOR too) and clickin' on the relative button you can call further info on the item or call a particular function.
      So you can decide the number of the buttons, the width of the buttons, and also the distance  between buttons.
      It's quick and dirty, simple  and very improvable (I know..) so fell free to play with the code.

      I'm trying to implement a scrolling list of controls. I have it sort of working using the GUIScrollBars_Ex UDF by @Melba23 found here. I also want to be able to tab through the controls, which I have accomplished by adding $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT to the child GUI. The problem is that with that style applied, the scrollbar doesn't act like a scrollbar, instead it acts as a title bar to the child GUI letting you drag the it around (and you can even "maximize" it by double clicking).
      Any ideas?
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include "GUIScrollbars_Ex.au3" $iButtonCount = 30 $hParent = GUICreate('Example', 300, 230) $hChild = GUICreate('', 300, 200, 0, 0, BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_TABSTOP), $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT, $hParent) For $i = 0 To $iButtonCount GUICtrlCreateButton('Button in list', 0, $i*30, 300, 30) Next GUISwitch($hParent) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 0, 200, 150, 30) GUICtrlCreateButton('More Buttons', 150, 200, 150, 30) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hParent) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hChild) _GUIScrollbars_Generate($hChild, 100, $iButtonCount * 30+20) While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE WEnd
