Creating tables in GuiRichEdit

6 posts in this topic

In GuiRichEdit you can copy and paste from the buffer table.
How can you create from the code? I do not find any such function in Help.
Tell me, please, who knows how to do it?

This is not such easy, as nobody before do this in AutoIt (as far as I know).
Here are some reference/usefull link to use:

richTextBox1.SelectedText = "hehehe";
String table = @"\trowd\trgaph108\trleft-108\trbrdrl\brdrs\brdrw10 \trbrdrt\brdrs\brdrw10 \trbrdrr\brdrs\brdrw10 \trbrdrb\brdrs\brdrw10 \trpaddl108\trpaddr108\trpaddfl3\trpaddfr3\clbrdrl\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrr\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrb\brdrw10\brdrs \cellx2844\clbrdrl\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrr\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrb\brdrw10\brdrs \cellx5796\clbrdrl\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrt\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrr\brdrw10\brdrs\clbrdrb\brdrw10\brdrs \cellx8748\pard\intbl\ltrpar\nowidctlpar\f1 \cell\row";
richTextBox1.Rtf = richTextBox1.Rtf.Replace("hehehe", table);

Many thanks, mLipok!
For participation and a large number of links!
Yes, I think it is worth trying to read the contents of a file into a variable in which there is a table and try to insert the desired text to the right place.

But if the added features in AutoIt to create tables in the RichEdit - it would be great!

#cs
    it seams that COLORREF should be used like dword

    Look in
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/pl-pl/library/windows/desktop/ms646830(v=vs.85).aspx
    and:
    _ChooseColor()
    To check how is used:
    dword rgbResult;


#CE

 

Maybe some other forum member could push this feature

...forward....

We assume that the beginning of the development of missing functions already! :) Thank you!
Me down to your level is still very far, but it is very necessary to use the table.

      Hi, what else can we add in <table> besides <tr> & <td> to make it more interative to the users?
    • guinness
      By guinness
      Well if you think in terms of a flat file e.g. INI file then perhaps it becomes a little easier to understand
      [Library] 1=Meshuggah,Bleed,C:\%USERPROFILE%\Music\Meshuggah\Bleed.mp3 #Artist,Song,Location 2=Enter Shikari,The One True Colour,C:\%USERPROFILE%\Music\ES\TOTC.mp3 3=Kid Cudi,Day 'N' Night,C:\%USERPROFILE%\Music\KCudi\Blah.mp3 [Playlist] Playlist1=1,2,3 # Songs 1, 2 and 3 from the library section Playlist2=2 The above example is a simple flat file structure in which if I were to add a new song e.g. Artist, Song, Location, I would simply increment the key up by 1, therefore the next value would be 4, 5 etc... Then I have a playlist section in which I use the key as the name of the playlist and then the value as a list of songs which correspond to the key in the library section. Make sense? 
      So in a relational database this could be mapped by having two tables for both sections that denote the information about a particular song (artist, song, location( and playlist (name), then we have a third table in which we bind which playlist a particular song belongs to.
      Library
      - id (primary key or INI key in our case - this is a surrogate key, as it's auto-generated by the DBMS)
      - artist
      - song
      - location
      Playlist
      - id (primary key - this is a surrogate key, as it's auto-generated by the DBMS)
      - name (the INI key in our case)
      Then we have a third table to bind the playlist and song together

      Playlist_Library
      - playlist_id (foreign key to the primary key in the playlist table i.e. a link to get the name of the playlist)
      - library_id (foreign key to the primary key in the library table i.e. a link to get information about a song by using a single value)
      Note: There is no primary key here, as playlist_id & library_id are a composite key, which make up a primary key*. But don't worry about that for now.
      * A set of attributes which guarantee they will be unique throughout the entire table e.g. a social security id would be one, as it's pretty much guaranteed no two rows will have the same id and thus it's easy to distinguish between the two rows.
      The data would then look like this: (The pipe character is just to denote each column in the table)
      Library
      id | artist | song | location
      1 | Meshuggah | Bleed | C:\%USERPROFILE%\Music\Meshuggah\Bleed.mp3
      2 | Enter Shikari | The One True Colour | C:\%USERPROFILE%\Music\ES\TOTC.mp3
      3 | Kid Cudi | Day 'N' Night | C:\%USERPROFILE%\Music\KCudi\Blah.mp3
      Playlist
      id | name
      1 | Playlist 1
      2 | Playlist 2
      3 | Awesome songs
      Playlist_Library
      playlist_id | library_id
      1 | 1
      1 | 2
      1 | 3
      2 | 2
      Phew, glad we got here. So does it make a little more sense now?
      Note: I have added a couple of keywords which I suggest you go and search, such as primary key, surrogate key and foreign key to name a few.

      I'm trying to pull the class from a table. I have no problem pulling the href but the class is giving me errors.

      Here is what i'm trying to do.

      $oForm = _IETableGetCollection ($oIE, 3) $oLinks = _IETagnameGetCollection($oForm, "TR") For $oLink in $oLinks ConsoleWrite($oLink.class & @CRLF) Next So it appears i can't call for .class like i am. Does anyone have any suggestions?
      This seems to work just fine though

      $oForm = _IETableGetCollection ($oIE, 3) $oLinks = _IETagnameGetCollection($oForm, "a") For $oLink in $oLinks ConsoleWrite($oLink.href & @CRLF) Next
      An example of one of the cells in the table--
      <tr align="left" class="color"><td><a href="http://autoitscript.com">Good friendly People</a></td>


      So what i'm looking for is how to pull out the "color" and add it to the table i'm creating in the next step. I'd really like to just look within the table and not the entire sheet.
      Thanks!
