Line break in GuiCtrlCreateInput

Recommended Posts

Trying to enter a line break every 60 chars to create a "centered" look on a long message in Input control.  This was the only way I could find after looking around for awhile, if anyone has a better method let me know!


#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Global $Count = 0, $Message, $MessageDisplay
Dim $Trim[4000]
GUICreate("Dummy", 200, 200)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
$Message = "This is a long text that I would like to split up at 60 chars and then reinput into the Input control using a LB at 60 chars!"
$Len = StringLen($Message)
$Trim[$Count] = StringTrimRight($Message, $Len - 60)
$Message = StringTrimLeft($Message, 60)
For $i = 1 To 100
    $Len = StringLen($Message)
    If $Len > 60 Then
        $Count += 1
        $Trim[$Count] = StringTrimLeft($Message, 60)
        $Message = StringTrimLeft($Message, 60)
        $Count += 1
        $Trim[$Count] = $Message
For $i = 0 To $Count
    $MessageDisplay = $MessageDisplay & $Trim[$i] & @CRLF ; This is where I want to add in line breaks and recreate the entire message.

$Display = GUICtrlCreateInput($MessageDisplay, 10, 10, 180, 180, BitOR($ES_CENTER, $ES_READONLY, $ES_MULTILINE))


Func _Exit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

You'll have to use an edit control instead of an input if you want to have multiple lines.

You could also check this out. Something I did a while ago, formats a very long string to fit a label based on the width of the label. Easily work for an edit too.
