The problem in the function _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetCharColor

5 posts in this topic

I switched to Autoit version 3.3.14.2.
After compiling the program I found that _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetCharColor function does not work as it should. The color of the text does not apply to all text.
Even stopped working example from the help file.
Please return properties of the function the former. She used to work clearly and correctly.
Thanks!

The example should be changed:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Global $g_idLblMsg, $g_hRichEdit

If you want to change color of entire document you should use:

mLipok, thank you for having responded!

The sequence of actions that I have used in the program like this:

I need to first install all the necessary properties of RTF, and then add text. Everything worked fine, but the new version features _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetCharColor this option stops working. I understand that it is possible with a new function to implement my version, but it is not so convenient.

      Please tell me, who knows how to apply and cancel styles in RTF?
      The following code does not work:
      #include <GuiRichEdit.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $hGUI = GUICreate("RichEdit Style", 500, 500, -1, -1) $hRichEdit = _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create($hGui, "Test", 20,40,460,400) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) Sleep(3000) GUICtrlSetStyle($hRichEdit, $ES_RIGHT) Sleep(3000) GUICtrlSetStyle($hRichEdit, -1) Sleep(3000) Thanks!

      Hi everybody.
      Could you tell me is there any UDF that can help to highlight syntax in the _GUICtrlRichEdit element on the fly?
      Is it possible to implement this feature in script in simple way using some UDF or something, instead of writing thousand of strings manually?
      Thanks in advance.

      I've been working with RichEdits and have come upon the very useful RESH UDF.  But I baffled by one statement in the example's _LoadFile() function:
      _GUICtrlRichEdit_ReplaceText($hRichEdit, '') Can someone explain this "non-replace"?  Here's the context:

      I think RichEdit has been my favorite thing I've ever discovered on AutoIt lol. In my quest to add in more html tags to my _StringToRichEditArray I needed a way to do href! There was an example I found that I followed but it didn't format correctly and didn't work 100% but it gave me a good base. Think I'll tackle inserting an image next, not looking forward to that. If anyone has an idea on how to do it let me know.
      Known issues (these will cause the hyperlink to lose the +li attribute after the RichEdit is updated):
      The hyperlink and friendly text are appended/inserted (directly adjacent to a non whitespace) but the hyperlink is not a valid hyperlink. Changing the char color for the control causes the hyperlink to lose it's hyperlink color (the light blue). Fix for Issue 1:
      Use the full URL for the hyperlink (https://www.autoitscript.com/site/ instead of www.autoitscript.com/site) Use any hyperlink with any friendly text that does not have www at the beginning (Hyperlink: www.google.com, Friendly Text: google.com) Use any hyperlink with any, or no, friendly text, but have a whitespace to the left of the hyperlink. Fix for Issue 2:
      I have no fix. Updated RichEdit Hyperlink.au3
      Demo
      Original Post, outdated: Had a problem with inserting/appending hyperlinks that pointed to the local computer. (C:\Windows\)

      You can now use your favorite html tags in a richedit control!
      Supports:
      <b></b> (bold) <i></i> (italic) <s></s> (strike) <u></u> (underline) <color=#nnnnnn></color> (color text) <color=0xnnnnn></color> (color text) <bkcolor=#nnnnnn></color> (color background text) <bkcolor=0xnnnnnn></color> (color background text) <font name="Font name" size=n></font> (Font name is the only one that has to have quotes around it. They can be double quotes or single, it doesn't matter. color, bkcolor, and size can also use quotes but they're optional)
      Does not support (but I may add later)
      <align> <a href=""> <img>
      ; Functions _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendHtmlText _StringToRichEditArray __GetArrayFromRegex __GetRichEditAttrFromChar __GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendTextColored __GUICtrlRichEdit_SetTextColor (I'm sure someone can come up with some better names for this lol)
      You can use a formatted (<color=0xNNNNNN>Formatted</color>) or non-formatted (Non-formatted) string with calling _GUICtrlRichEdit_AppendHtmlText and _StringToRichEditArray. _StringToRichEditArray will just set the attributes, font name, font size, and colors to the current attributes of the RichEdit Control (At least it should... RichEdit can be picky about setting the font and char attributes correctly....).
      Calling _StringToRichEditArray will return a 2d array with n amount of rows.
      [n][0] - String [n][1] - Font name for the [0] string. [n][2] - Font size for the [0] string. [n][3] - Character attributes for the [0] string. [n][4] - Text color for the [0] string. [n][5] - Back color for the [0] string. It seems I was too hasty in my release and this still wasn't working 100% . I guess I'll try to work on it tomorrow and see if I can get it working  the way tags are supposed to work. It's not a complete waste, it's close  but not perfect and I know why.
