Vertical center text in INPUT control

Recommended Posts

Genotypek

Hello.

I've got a problem. I want to center my input vertically, but I don't have any single idea how to do it.

There's my example code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("Gui", 237, 93, 192, 124)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Center vertically isn't correct", 16, 16, 201, 62)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

What could I do?

Greetings, "genotypek".

Input controls aren't really designed to be centered vertically. Why would you want 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.

I made a program for learning German, the person who is using it has bad sight, so inputs and text have to be bigger. If they're text isn't centered vertically. :/

This works only, because he's creating background which looks like input without border, so it's still not allowed to use bigger size of font.

But okay, it's not so important.

But could you tell me, how to add event in input when eg. {enter} will be pressed? For example if {enter} will be pressed it should execute func "function()"?

Best regards.

It's almost what I need, but this enter is captured only when this input is hovered by mouse in this time. But it's still better than button. :)
I already did it for Edit control:
 

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

$GUI = GUICreate("Gui", 400, 100, -1, -1)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)

$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 50, 10, 300, 80, BitOR($ES_WANTRETURN,$ES_AUTOVSCROLL) + $WS_VSCROLL)

While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = -3 Then Exit ; Closing program by X
    If StringInStr(GUICtrlRead($Edit1), @CRLF) Then ; Searching {enter} in string
        GUICtrlSetData($Edit1,StringReplace(GUICtrlRead($Edit1), @CRLF, "")) ; Remove {enter} from string
        calledFunc()
    EndIf
WEnd

Func calledFunc()
    MsgBox(64, "Info", "Enter was pressed.")
EndFunc

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions

      Hello...

      How i can write data from txt to +3 Input?
      Example:
      In txt i have:
      Michael XYZ, 21, Boston
      Olex Marshal, 17, Boston
      Alex XYZ, 19, Boston
       
      And now i want load that data to input in autoit. 

      Name          y.o          city
      [ Input1]  [Input2] [Input3]
      [ Input4]  [Input5] [Input6]
      [ Input7]  [Input8] [Input9]
       
      After load should be:
      Name               y.o            city
      [Michael XYZ]      [21]     [Boston]
      [ Olex Marshal]  [17]      [Boston]
      [ Alex XYZ]           [19]      [Boston]
       
      FileOpen("Test.txt",0)                          $aas = GUICtrlSetData($Input1, FileReadLine("Test.txt",1))             FileClose("Test.txt") But its wrong. ofcourse its load all to input 1. So now how do you load this data directly into each input separately? The comma stop sign is here. Each line is a new person

      Hello again!
      I have tried searching for quite some time now but couldn´t find a single working way to change the class of your GUI that doesn´t include changing it manually after its compilation.
      First or "AutoIt v3 GUI" is a pretty boring name tbh and i would like to spice it up a bit, also, and more importantly, I would like to identify my windows by something other than its title as it will change depending on some factors and im using two different programs independently as multi threading isn't supported.
      Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
