Allow right click copy on disabled input box

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have an input box which is disabled, and populates with a value after a button is pressed.

I want to leave this box disabled after there is a value in it, but still allow the user to right click and copy the boxes contents, is this kind of thing possible somehow?

cookiemonster,

Try setting the input the readonly rather than disabled - the context menu still works and <Select all - Copy> will get you the content:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)

$cButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Read-Only", 10, 100, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

$sOrgText = GUICtrlRead($cInput)

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cButton
            ; Set readonly style
            GUICtrlSetStyle($cInput, BitOr($ES_READONLY, $ES_LEFT, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL))
            ; Empty the undo buffer
            GUICtrlSendMsg($cInput, $EM_EMPTYUNDOBUFFER, 0, 0)
    EndSwitch

WEnd
