GuiCtrlCreateEdit & GuiCtrlSetData Question! :)

Recommended Posts

Hello!

When utilizing GUICtrlSetData to edit what is displayed in a GUICtrlCreateEdit field, is there a way to just make it write new lines rather than clearing what's there and writing the new information?

For example ... 

GUICtrlSetData ($editField, "Line one"&@CRLF ,  "")
GUICtrlSetData ($editField, "Line two"&@CRLF ,  "")
GUICtrlSetData ($editField, "Line three"&@CRLF ,  "")

What happens now if those three things run one after another, the Edit field displays "Line One" , then that is replaced with "Line Two" and so on with the previous information disappearing and the subsequent taking its place. I'd like for it to say all three, one after another. Any documents on how I may accomplish this?

Thanks!

Reizvoller,

Use the GUlEdit UDF - the _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText function is the one you want.

Hello there!

Melba23, that sounds just peachy! Trouble I am having now is locating the UDF. I searched the forums for that name and I went through the Wiki ( https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/User_Defined_Functions ) . I feel like I am once again over looking something plainly obvious... If it's not too much trouble could you spare the time to provide a link? Thanks a bunch!

@Reizvoller just do a search in the help file for _GuiCtrlEdit_AppendText. If you have the current version of AutoIt, it's in there ;)

Read the help file more carefully. The last parameter of GUICtrlSetData can't be an empty string if you want to append to the text there already.

;~ Change this line
GUICtrlSetData ($editField, "Line three"&@CRLF ,  "")
:` To this
GUICtrlSetData ($editField, "Line three"&@CRLF ,  "x") ; the last parameter can be anything as long as it's not an empty string.

      I am attempting to draw multiple edit controls partially overlapping, creating the appearance of a single huge label.
      This is for a read only report.  Unfortunately, each box comes with its own quaint little black edge.
      How do I remove this black edge?

      Happy New Year everyone!
      I would like to extract the color values of certain pixels in an image.  This is how I picture the workflow: 
      User opens an image of his choice. Image is shown on the screen. User draws a line into the image. This happens by marking the startpixel and the endpixel of the line The line is drawn, so the user can check visually if he is happy with the line.  The following pixel based properties belonging to the line are stored in Excel: X-Coordinate Y-Coordinate Color Value Additional operations: Extracting for max- and min. color values; Statistical operations.   Browsing through the helpfile of AutoIt I find plenty of functions for treating images (e.g. GDIPlus), but I am completely unsure if Autoit will get me there. Should I read the entire image into an array? Should I rather attempt to script an external image software (e.g. IrfanView, Gimp)?
      I would be very thankful if someone could give some recommendations and maybe list a couple of the most important commands to use.
      Thank you very much.

      Hello
      I have an inquiry from you
      I have a file path  with commands line
      Is there a way to separate the path from the commands line?
      I want the result in an array
      for example
      $path = '"c:\NVDA\NVDA slav Portable 1\NVDA.exe" -r -m -path="d:\NVDA Path\Portable"'
      there are any method to separate this text?
      i want the result to be as that
      $array[1] = "c:\NVDA\NVDA slav Portable 1\NVDA.exe"
      $array[2] = '-r -m -path="d:\NVDA Path\Portable"'
      Thanks in advance

      In the autoit file, if we add multiple libraries (both internal and custom created one)
       
      When we compile the code and run the exe, some time we are getting runtime errors.
      But the line number of error is not showing the exact line number, might be it is including the line number count of libraries also.
      Can you please suggest how to get the exact error line number.
      So, it will be useful for debugging.

      Hello my friends
      I have an inquiry after your permission
      I found a function to get the special line commands for any operation
      It requires the name of the process to be searched
      I want to use it to know the process
      Is this possible with this function
      Here is the code
       
      Func commandLineGet($proc, $strComputer=".")
      dim $array[1]
      local $ArrayNumber
      local $oWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
      local $oProcessColl = $oWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process where Name= " & '"'& $Proc & '"')
      local $Process
      For $Process In $oProcessColl
      $Process = $Process.Commandline
          ReDim $Array[UBound($Array)+1]
      $ArrayNumber = UBound($Array)-1
      $array[$ArrayNumber] = $Process
      Next
      $ArrayNumber = UBound($Array)-1
      $array[0] = $ArrayNumber
      return $array
      EndFunc
