How to vertically center text in label control

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,

I'm trying to vertically center text in label controls, but no way. The search on the forum returns no result, or I don't search the right way :>

When I insert a button and a label of same size close to each other, the text is centered on the button, but top aligned on the label, or edit. Which doesn't look really aesthetic :no:

Any idea is welcome

Thanks in advance,

Thoms

Here is one idea to center text vertically and horizontally in a label and edit control.

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

Example()

Func Example()
    GUICreate("My GUI", 200, 400)

    Local $iCtrlDepth = 200, $iFontSize = 9
    $iCenter = Int($iCtrlDepth / ($iFontSize * 4))
    GUICtrlCreateLabel(_StringRepeat(@CRLF, $iCenter) & "Label", 10, 30, 100, $iCtrlDepth, $SS_CENTER) 
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xA0FFFF)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, $iFontSize)

    $iCtrlDepth1 = 150
    $iFontSize = 12
    $iCenter = Int($iCtrlDepth1 / ($iFontSize * 4))
    GUICtrlCreateEdit(_StringRepeat(@CRLF, $iCenter) & "Edit", 10, 40 + $iCtrlDepth, 100, $iCtrlDepth1, $ES_CENTER)
    GUICtrlSetFont(-1, $iFontSize)
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFFA0)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Hi Malkey,

Thanks for your quick answer. This works pretty well for large label height/font size ratio, but my label height is 52 and font size is 12.

This results in approx. bottom aligned text.

I've found another way (for lazy): I put an empty 52 height label, then a 26 height label with text 12 on top of it. Both with same color.

I expected an easier way to do it.

BTW, I don't understand $BS_VCENTER for buttons as they are vertically centered by default. This would be more helpful for labels/edits in my case.

Thx,

Thoms

      hello evrybody
      here is an example about how to split your texts using a delimiter with the ability to select how much of delimiters shows in each colum  with $i_number
      e.g
      you have a long text and you want to split it in an array
      that evry colum have a number (n) of lines
      i made a function that do that for you
      just call it with a three params
      $s_text
      your text
      $i_number
      the number that you want to put in each col
      $s_siparator
      the siparator
      default is "|"
      here is the function with example
      i hope that it will be useful for you
       
      ****
       
      #include <Array.au3> $s_txt = "some text1some text2|some text3|some text4|some text5|some text6" $array = splitText($s_txt, 2) _ArrayDisplay($array) Func splitText($s_text, $i_number, $s_siparator = "|") Local $a_TXT = StringSplit($s_text, $s_siparator) Local $a_Return[$a_TXT[0] + 1] If ($a_TXT[0] <= $i_number) Or ($i_number <= 0) Then ReDim $a_Return[2] $a_Return[0] = 1 $a_Return[1] = $s_text Return $a_Return EndIf Local $i_Processed = 1, $i_arrayProcessed = 1 Do For $i = $i_Processed To ($i_Processed + $i_number) - 1 If ($a_TXT[0] < $i) Then ExitLoop If Not ($a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed]) Then $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] = $a_TXT[$i] Else $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] &= $s_siparator & $a_TXT[$i] EndIf $i_Processed += 1 Next $i_arrayProcessed += 1 Until ($a_TXT[0] < $i_Processed) ReDim $a_Return[$i_arrayProcessed] $a_Return[0] = $i_arrayProcessed - 1 Return $a_Return EndFunc ;==>splitText
      accept my greetings
      thanks to

      This UDF allows to create formatted label using pseudo element RichLabel (RichEdit actually). Formating is set by using special modificator similar to <font> tag in Html.
      Notes: This UDF is a transformation-continuation of related UDF


      Example:
      Download:
      GUIRichLabel_1.2.zip
      Small syntax related fix: GUIRichLabel_1.1.zip
      GUIRichLabel_1.1.zip
