No carriage return in label

5 posts in this topic

My program generates a huge lot of numbers that has to be displayed in a label. Usually there are around 100 thousand and 1 million numbers, so I obviously have certain problems with space. I get the data into the label, but it's all in one line and simply exceeds the label (by a couple of million pixels, but never mind that)... Of course it won't fit into a 200x200 big label either, but it'd look a lot nicer. I don't even need to scroll in it.

The only thing in need is an automatic @CRLF at the border of the label.

Something like the style $ES_MULTILINE for the input box.

Here's the most important stuff from the GUI.

Local $gui = GUICreate("Crypt", 630, 440)
    Local $in = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 300, 300, $ES_MULTILINE) ; need something like $ES_MULTILINE just one line later in this code
    Local $out = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 320, 10, 300, 300) ; instead of "", please imagine a random number between 1e5 and 1e6 here please
    ; a lot of buttons that don't matter right now

    GUISetBkColor(0x111111, $gui)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor($in, 0xEEEEEE)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor($out, 0xEEEEEE)
    ; again a lot of button configuartion that's completely unnecessary right now

    GUICtrlSetColor($in, 0x111111)
    GUICtrlSetColor($out, 0x111111)
    ; same as before

    GUISetFont(13, 200, 0, "Candara", $gui)
    GUICtrlSetFont($in, 13, 200, 0, "Candara")
    GUICtrlSetFont($out, 13, 200, 0, "Candara")
    ; still configuation for the buttons

    Local $data0 = ""
    ; some unimportant variables

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $gui)
    
    ; switch from GUIGetMsg() in an infinite while-loop

Thanks!

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("My GUI") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Line 1 "&@CRLF&"Line 2", 10, 30, 100,59)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; will display an empty dialog box

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

        EndSwitch
    WEnd

EndFunc   ;==>Example

It would be nice, if I could just squeeze it in manually. Sadly, it doesn't work. I get those numbers in a huge single string, and it has to be exactly that way for further processing. There's nothing I could change about that.

The program has to detect itself when the numbers would exceed the limits of the label. Then it has to put them into the next line without adding an actual carriage return. Similar to what is done in the input box in my example.

Something like this? I would have finished this sooner but I found it to be an interesting concept and wanted to make it more functional, allowing you to scroll through all the lines. A snippit I will store in my saved functions folder :)

      I have a workplace GUI that has a search field function that pulls up customer records to allow changes. I am attempting to 1)LOGIN 2)Enter Search field, enter a number and then {ENTER} 3)change specific field once customer record loads.

When I "inspect element" in the Search field I get the attached:

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

      Hello,
      As I was searching this forum I came along something intresting what was new to me.
      CUI/GUI hybrid.
      Whish sounds very usefull to me to compile it all into 1 script.
      So i was fideling around whit it but couldn't get it to work.
      In the real script (not this simplified version) i got a lot of functions whish i can use whan talking to it by commandline and switches.
      I could not get this to work and hope somebody could give me some pointers on how to make it work.
      Also I was hoping iff somebody could help me whit the /? function?
      (I don't know how to output the help text back to the commandline or the function that can help me do it)
      please advice and thanks in advanced.

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!

      Hello Forum,
      As said in the title, I'm searching a way to disable all tabstops in a GUI. My GUI includes 15 buttons and 3 edit controls.
      My questions:
      - is there a way to disable all tabstops at a time
      - is there a way to list all controls of a GUI and then disable tabstops one by one
      - or should I use the following line after each button creation:
      _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP))) Thanks in advance for your valuable help!
      Thoms
      Edit: or maybe disable TAB key? I don't remember how to do!
