Carriage Return on an Input Box

8 posts in this topic

I have an application that presents a row of iclons and an input box for the user to use for certain support functions at a corporate site. I use on event mode to process commands. Is there a way to determine if the carriage return has been pressed in the input box so that a function can be performed. I have searched the forum and the help file in the past, but the words carriage, return and enter are a bit too common ;) .

Thank you,

Tom Brown

You could always put a button on your GUI and make it the default button, thus when enter is hit it presses the button.

inputbox has more priority to capture the enter key then a default button.

either of the two suggestions posted would work, or if you REALLY wanted to reinvent the wheel and waste processor time, you could make an adlib function that uses _IsPressed() to watch for the enter key...personally i'd go with the default button solution if there's a button that does the same thing as enter, if no button, use the hotkey to call the function...

wouldn't that only be true if it's a multi-line?

:"> I knew this would happen ... so I searched for the default button in the help file and got a ton of results, but didn't see what I was looking for. I had come to the conclusion that the default button was a vicious rumor that I had tortured myself with. For some reason I didn't think to look at the GUICTRLSetState entry until I searched for default button encased in quotes. :"> So, the default button idea works just fine. Thank you for your input. I've spent so much time on some of the more radical portions of the new language that I have obviously missed a few of the basics.
