No carriage return in label

Recommended Posts

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 :)

      Hello Everyone,
      I've developed my own GUI using AutoIt and I'm allowing users to minimize the GUI, but I also want to include some kind of timer so that it will automatically restore the GUI after something like 30 minutes or an hour. However, I also want them to be able to manually restore the GUI by clicking the application's icon in the taskbar.
      I've searched through the forums, but I'm not sure how to get started.
      Any ideas or functions to research are appreciated!
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi, recently i created a GUI for some calculations in AutoIT.  The GUI has 2 tabs and on the first tab, it has few inputboxes where i use to click with mouse and start entering the inputs. i recently made some changes in the position of these textboxes. I made this by changing the autoit code file instead of making changes in KODA. Now i cannot click inside these textboxes with mouse. However, i can use TAB key to cycle through/enter input in these input boxes. what could have made the inputboxes not responding to mouseclicks. thanks

      What gives?

      Introduction
      ImGui is a popular library written by ocornut, it can make awesome user interface based on directx. It is being used by many big apps/games.  The UI is nice and flexible, easy to use because of frame-by-frame drawing. So I decided to convert the entire ImGui library to AutoIt
      At first it's just an experiment, i converted some basic draw functions of imgui, compile to a dll, then using DllCall in autoit to call the functions. I was testing to see how much FPS i can get in autoit, and i was expected a low FPS, since autoit is slow. Suprisingly, the FPS turned out to be so high, it works really fast, even when drawing 1000 buttons at the same time. Features
      More than +270 functions converted from ImGui (compiled dll). Has 90% of the capability of what you can do in C++; Usable ImGuiIO and ImGuiStyle, so you can set whatever configurations you like. Preview
          
      Usage
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include "ImGui.au3" ; Create a window Local $hwnd = _ImGui_GUICreate("AutoIt ImGui", 1024, 768) _WinAPI_ShowWindow($hwnd) ; Set style color _ImGui_StyleColorsLight() ;~ _ImGui_StyleColorsDark() Local $f_value = 5 While 1 ; when the user click close button on the window, this will return false if Not _ImGui_PeekMsg() Then Exit ; must call _ImGui_BeginFrame() _ImGui_Begin("Another window") _ImGui_Text("Hello there..") If _ImGui_Button("click me") Then $f_value = 5 _ImGui_SliderFloat("slider", $f_value, 2, 20) If _ImGui_IsItemHovered() Then _ImGui_ToolTip("what r u doing?") _ImGui_End() ; must call _ImGui_EndFrame() Wend  
      Remark
      Most of the functions were converted automatically. I haven't tested all of them yet, if some function doesn't work for you, please tell me. Still missing some features of ImGui, please tell me if you needed any. Run \tools\imgui-au3-setup.au3 to add _ImGui functions to SciTE auto-complete. Source Code

      good morning
      this is the first post here in the autoit forums
      i hope that you can help me in my problem
      i have a JSON encoded
      it a map of my forums
      where i want to make a treeview that have the same type of map
      e.g
      a system (as category)
      windows (as sub category)
      software (as an child item in the windows category)
      .....
      i don't know how to do that
      so, i know that i can do that using the json functions
      but i need your help about how we can do it as the type that i told you
      by the way i need to put the sub info for each item in an array that give me the ability to manage my items
      e.g
      can post thread
      can reply
      message cound ...
      you just give me a small example and i can continue.
      am sorry if this against the rules of the forum.
      but i realy searched a lot but i couldn't
      i hope some one give me the way.
      thank you very much in advance
       
      here is the link of json forum
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/148114-a-non-strict-json-udf-jsmn/
