How to put formatted text via GUICtrlSetData to native Edit field

9 posts in this topic

Hello.

Could you help me find the answer for my issue. I'm trying to set fomatted data wich is selected from SQL to GUICtrlCreateEdit field.

And the GUICtrlSetData function is inserting it in one line. But when I'm trying to do the same using MsgBox the data looks fine.

I'm trying to not use _GUICtrlRichEdit UDF.

Thanks in advance. Here is my test code.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIListBox.au3>
#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$hMainGUI = GUICreate("Test", 520, 240)
$hListBox = _GUICtrlListBox_Create($hMainGUI, "", 10, 10, 180, 80)
$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 80, 500, 150)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hMainGUI)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "_WM_COMMAND")

Local $hQuery, $aRow
_SQLite_Startup()
$hDB = _SQLite_Open('MyDB.sqlite')

_SQLite_Query(-1, "SELECT ID ||"". "" || Name FROM Templates ORDER BY ID;", $hQuery)

While _SQLite_FetchData($hQuery, $aRow) = $SQLITE_OK
    _GUICtrlListBox_AddString($hListBox, $aRow[0])
WEnd

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "CLOSE_Button")

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode, $hWndListBox
    If Not IsHWnd($hListBox) Then $hWndListBox = GUICtrlGetHandle($hListBox)
    $hWndFrom = $lParam
    $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; Low Word
    $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; Hi Word

    Switch $hWndFrom
        Case $hListBox, $hWndListBox
            Switch $iCode
                Case $LBN_DBLCLK
                    Select_Template(_GUICtrlListBox_GetCurSel($hListBox) + 1)
                    Return 0
            EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_WM_COMMAND

Func CLOSE_Button()
    _SQLite_Close()
    _SQLite_Shutdown()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>CLOSE_Button

Func Select_Template($sListItem)
    _SQLite_QuerySingleRow($hDB, _
            "SELECT Content " & _
            "FROM Templates " & _
            "WHERE ID = " & $sListItem & ";", $aRow)
;~      MsgBox(64, "Test: " & $sListItem, $aRow[0])
    GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, $aRow[0])
    WinSetTitle($hMainGUI, "", "Test: " & $sListItem)
EndFunc   ;==>Select_Template

Insert a Console('Data: '&$YourRawDataFromSQLite&@crlf) in your script and post this line from console output.

Copy the line from edit and post it.

^FX | Delete files from FLASH (E:)  | ^FS
^IDE:X5_*.*^FS
^XZ

Use this:

Func Select_Template($sListItem)
    #cs
    _SQLite_QuerySingleRow($hDB, _
            "SELECT Content " & _
            "FROM Templates " & _
            "WHERE ID = " & $sListItem & ";", $aRow)
;~      MsgBox(64, "Test: " & $sListItem, $aRow[0])
    #ce
    Dim $aRow[1]        ;just for test delete it
    $aRow[0]="^XA^FX | Delete files from FLASH (E:)  | ^FS^IDE:X5_*.*^FS^XZ" ;just for test delete it
    $aRow[0]=StringStripWS(StringReplace(StringReplace($aRow[0],"^",@CRLF&"^"),@CRLF&"^FS","^FS"),$STR_STRIPLEADING)
    GUICtrlSetData($hEdit, $aRow[0])
    WinSetTitle($hMainGUI, "", "Test: " & $sListItem)
EndFunc   ;==>Select_Template

Run >= once without any change, after tested with the hardcoded line, delete the 2 "just for test lines" and try with real data, this means also delete lines #cs and #ce.

Yeah! That's work! Thanks a lot.

You save me from this:

If StringLen(_GUICtrlRichEdit_GetText($hRichEdit)) > 0 Then
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_SetSel($hRichEdit, 0, -1, True) 
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_ReplaceText($hRichEdit, $aRow[0])   
Else
    _GUICtrlRichEdit_InsertText($hRichEdit, $aRow[0]) 
EndIf

And other nice features of UDF like WM_SIZE.

Hi again!

I tested my script using StringStripWS and StringReplace tricks and find out that it works correct only if I don't have empty lines in my multilines text files in DB.

E.g. if I store text like this:

^XA
^FX Test script

^FD Test data
^XZ

my script will return me using

$aRow[0] = StringStripWS( _
                    StringReplace( _
                        StringReplace($aRow[0], "^", @CRLF & "^"), _
                    @CRLF & "^FS", "^FS"), _
           $STR_STRIPLEADING)

text formatted like this:

^XA
^FX Test script
^FD Test data
^XZ

Could you tell me, how can I fix it using the same trick with StringStripWS?

Thanks.

What format are you looking to have it come back as? Not really sure what you're trying to achieve with this.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Hi! For example, as I post previously, I store a text file in my database in this format:

^XA
^FX Test script

^FD Test data
^XZ

When I am trying to read it to GUICtrlCreateEdit via function GUICtrlSetData, it will be placed like this:

^XA^FX Test script^FD Test data^XZ

The trick with function StringStripWS and StringReplace

$aRow[0] = StringStripWS( _
                    StringReplace( _
                        StringReplace($aRow[0], "^", @CRLF & "^"), _
                    @CRLF & "^FS", "^FS"), _
           $STR_STRIPLEADING)

will convert it to this;

^XA
^FX Test script
^FD Test data
^XZ

As you can see, there is no @CRLF that was there in the source file.

Eventually I replaced GUICtrlCreateEdit with _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create.

Thanks all.

      Good evening guys
      I am working on a little project, in which I have to retrieve 8000+ rows of data from a table, from a SQLite database, to populate a combobox 
      This is what I tried 'til now, but it still takes about 12 seconds to populate the combobox.
      _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "BEGIN TRANSACTION;") If _SQLite_GetTable($objDatabase, "SELECT DISTINCT Comune FROM LISTA_COMUNI;", $arrRisultatoQuery, $intRighe, $intColonne) = $SQLITE_OK Then For $i = 2 To UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 If $i < UBound($arrRisultatoQuery) - 1 Then GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i] & "|") Else GUICtrlSetData($cbo_ComuneNascita, $arrRisultatoQuery[$i]) EndIf Next _SQLite_Exec($objDatabase, "COMMIT;") Are there any other solution to retrieve 8000+ records from a SQLite database?
      Thank you very much

      Good morning community!
      I am working on a script which read from a text file ( .txt ) and should import all the content in a SQLite3 DB, in order to execute some queries that should be difficult to execute on a text file.
      So, I was looking for something very very fast, because the file could be very large ( I don't know exaclty how much can became big, but I know a lot of rows, it's a log file ... )
      I found the "Import method", but I don't know If I can implement it in a query ( @jchd, it's your turn!  )
      Do you know some methods that I can implement in my script to have a very very fast import of thousands and thousands rows in a SQLite3 DB?
      Thanks a lot

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on this little project for a week, and, what I'm trying to do could be useful for many users as well...
      I'm trying to do a "Report Generator", which reads the data that have to report from a text file (.txt) formatted with this pattern;
      Data1;Data2;Data3;Data4;Data5;;

      YES, there are 2 semi-colon at the end of the line.

      In detail, Data1 is a date/time stamp with this format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS ;

      When the script starts, the user is prompted to choose 2 dates which I'll call as:
      Report_Date_Start; Report_Date_Start. So, the report, should cover all dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End.

      And, already at this point, I don't know how to do the query... How can I say to the script:
      SELECT * FROM (.txt) WHERE Data1 BETWEEN Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End; ?

      I thought that I could do a _DateDiff, but if the difference between the two dates is months and not days, how can I do the trick?
      Should I make a Switch...Case with the _DateDiff() and see then calculate all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End... But then, how can I compare the dates in the file with all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End? I'm going crazy, I know...

      I've already made a "Export Tool", which exports the content of the .txt file in a .db, managed with SQLite... I mean, there I could easily do a query like I did above the thread, but, this "export", for 1080 rows, takes 28 seconds to be done. And, 1080 rows are daily rows that are added every day in the .txt file, so, in a week, the file could be easily 7000+ rows, which means that the "export" would take 3 minutes to be done... And we can go over and over...
      I'll post just for be "complete" what I've done about the export, so, maybe, someone could say how to improve it in terms of efficency...

      [19:18] 
      I've been writing this post from 18:40 maybe...
      By the way, if @jchd or someone else could tell me if I can import a formatted .txt file in SQLite and then, do queries on the DB, I'd be very happy for that...
      About the report in PDF, I'm talking with @taietel in order to know how to create a PDF.
      I hope someone will help me
      Sorry for the "long" list of questions...
      Thank you for everything you've done for me
      I have to say that this is the community of programming language that I've loved most!
      By the way, I'll be back tomorrow in the morning ( ~ 9:15 a.m. Italian time ), so, excuse me if I can't answer before that time.
      Hope you guys have a wonderful day/night.

      Thanks again

      Francesco
