output text color in GUICtrlSetData

3 posts in this topic


Is any way to color output text in GUICtrlSetData?

GUICtrlSetData($Edit_1,"'copy help' combo box is unchecked" & @CRLF, 1)  // would like to color yellow

GUICtrlSetData($Edit_1,"failed/passed" & @CRLF, 1)  // would like to color green or red

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

To have different colours within the same Edit control you will need to use a RichEdit control - look in the Help file for the RichEdit UDF.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Until now I didn't need forum :)  help file was enough. But I was out of ideas when I tried to color output text  :) Thanks, for the suggestion.
