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:

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 :)

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier
      TestNetworkShare.au3
      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Hi everyone,
      GUICtrlSetState Function example ,i found $GUI_DROPACCEPTED isn't working in windows10 x64(windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64).
      if the example put to windows10 x86 or windows xp, the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED is effective,
      the AutoIt Edition is v3.3.14.2.
      any ideas? thanks you.

      Hey Guys,
       
      So, the functions work, where primarygui() accurately determines the evaluation of the status of the checkboxes - the msgbox picks this up.
       
      However, later on, when we re-enter a 'for $i = 0 to ubound($checkbox)' loop, then in the 'batchinitial' function it doesn't picked up that the status&$i = 1, so it jumps out, then within the While 1 loop, it exits the loop in the first row, again because the status& $i= 0
      The "assign" line within the primarygui funtion, is this only a local assignment? if so, how can I make it cross function?
       
      Thank in adv for your help

      Hello everyone !
      While writing a sample of code to test ping to my internet box, I got stuck..
      While the code is Pinging with let say.. 5000ms of timeout, I need to update a progress bar from 0 to 5000 ms at the same time but I don't know how could I do this..
      Is there a way or something that could get around the pause of the ping like in InetGet -> InetGetInfo?

      Here are two functions to provide pixel-accurate height and width dimensions for a given string.
      The more commonly-used _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString built-in UDF is problematic because it returns the width padded by roughly one en-space (for reasons related to the various ways Windows produces anti-aliased fonts).
      These are AutoIt translations of Pierre Arnaud's C# functions, described in his CodeProject article "Bypass Graphics.MeasureString limitations"
      The first is an all-purpose version that takes a window handle, string, font family, font size (in points), style, and (optionally) width of the layout column (in pixels) as parameters.
      The second, more efficient version is intended for applications where GDI+ fonts are already in use, and takes handles to the existing graphics context, string, font, layout and format as parameters.
      Both functions return a two-row array with the exact width [0] and height [1] of the string (in pixels).
      EDIT: (Note that some of the same anti-aliasing measurement issues still apply. I did my best to work around them, but the output of the function may still be off by a pixel or two. Buyer beware.)
