GUICtrlRead - Case problem

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello, I post this because I was coding and I see a big bug in the GUICtrlRead function, here is my code (the interface part almost):


Don't worry about comments, it's in french :P

So, the $REG variable contain a GUICtrlCreateInput, to get it value, I use 

$reg = GUICtrlRead($REG)

And there is the bug, the $reg value is doing wired things with the $REG value, I mean that when I run  $reg = GUICtrlRead($REG) for the first time, $reg is equal to the string that I entered in the input field, but if I retry to execute  $reg = GUICtrlRead($REG) a scnd time, the value is equal to 0. I havn't this bug with the 

$summoner = GUICtrlRead($SUMM)

So I think it mean that if you've got two value with the same name but not the same case (A, a), it can mix value and do some weird things. I thinks it's a big bug, that's why I report it. And my code is not bugging because of a programmation error, the $SUMM  and the $summoner have differents names but are used in exactly the same way as $REG and $reg.

My fix:

Call your variables differently (ex: $REG and $region is working for me)

Thanks to fix this bug :)

umm no, case means nothing.

First Loop, $reg is a control, and then you set the string that is read from $reg to $reg.

Second Loop, $reg is now a string (because case has no effect), and when you guictrlread a string it returns 0, which means failure.

$reg = "string I entered"
msgbox(0, '' , guictrlread($reg))

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked.

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.




I remembered to lock this one.
