Seeking clarification on RESH _LoadFile example

3 posts in this topic

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:

You want to load a file so the RichEditcontrol had to be empty. When you want to append use _GuiCtrlRichEdit_AppendText instead.

Thanks for your response.  But just to be clear, the purpose of the statement is to clear all contents of the RichEdit?  Yes?

Is that documented anywhere?

Update: although I haven't seen it documented, I have now seen this elsewhere as a conventional method to clear a richedit:

_GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($hRichEdit, 0, -1)
            _GUICtrlRichEdit_ReplaceText($hRichEdit, "")

I'll consider this closed.  Thanks, again.

      Two questions...
      When presenting a form containing a richedit control, is there any way to make the displayed text, within said richedit control, non-selectable?
      In addition, is there any way to hide the vertical line cursor, within said richedit control?

      I've finally come up with some simple solutions for dragging & dropping a URL onto a control.
      There have been many requests here for this over the years.
      I do have an issue though, with my second code example solution as is mentioned here.
      The issue relates to working in Win 7 (and no doubt newer Windows).
      As I state there, failure is no doubt due to 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' missing from the System32 folder, at the very least.
      Not sure if it would be wise to just dump 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' from WinXP into the Win 7 System32 folder. I expect not.
      I imagine there is a better solution available in Win 7. Maybe a different OCX file, and perhaps a different Class of object etc.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Code is here (second example).
      Okay, I have rediscovered that 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' is a VB6 ActiveX control. So while I could dig up a copy and register it, that would probably not be helpful to everyone.
      And registering it didn't help. Possibly other dependencies are also needed?
      When running the script, it is clear going by the error reported, that Object is not being created.

      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 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 ( instead of Use any hyperlink with any friendly text that does not have www at the beginning (Hyperlink:, Friendly Text: 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
      Original Post, outdated: Had a problem with inserting/appending hyperlinks that pointed to the local computer. (C:\Windows\)
