Adding text to GUICtrlCreateEdit

6 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I'm creating a tool that consolidates application use and call notation for the call center I work for. Off to one side of my gui I have a edit box that I want to have some prefilled texts that the agents will then write next to. I have the first line looking like so:

$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 288, 72, 217, 353)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Member#:")

and for the next line down I'd like to input GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Member Name")

 

How would one go about doing this, if possible?

Instead of using -1 use $Edit1.

Thank you for the input! 

The text for member# is set up properly and is placed inside the edit box, but I dont' know how to script it so the next line of text I put in the edit box is on the next line down.


Best,

Worked like a charm! Not sure how I didn't even think to input the line breaks in there...wow

 

Thanks!
