Your control id is $hello. Try to use meanfull names for your variables.

here is your script fixed. Check line 84.

Hi,

I am having the same problem as Shirdish. I checked Danyfirex's solution and I have that line (line 84 above is line 47 in my code). Still returns blank. It's late so I'm posting my code here in the hopes someone can figure out what I've done wrong, and I can fix it and move on sometime tomorrow!

This is the beginning of a search program. I have the search working in another function, I just wanted to add some features. When finished, it will look in the specific Log file for the search parameter. I've generalized the SelectSearchFile func to look in whatever directory this is run in, since that part really doesn't matter at this point.

Your help is truly appreciated!

#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>

        ; Display the error message.
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file was selected.")

    Else
        ; Change the working directory (@WorkingDir) back to the location of the script directory as FileOpenDialog sets it to the last accessed folder.
        FileChangeDir(@ScriptDir)

        ; Replace instances of "|" with @CRLF in the string returned by FileOpenDialog.
        $sFileOpenDialog = StringReplace($sFileOpenDialog, "|", @CRLF)

        ; Return the selected file.
        Return $sFileOpenDialog

@Jibberish Your msgbox statement is incorrect in your code. See solution below.. :D

Incorrect

MsgBox(0,"","User Entry is ",$sUserInput)

Fixed

MsgBox(0, "", "User Entry is " & $sUserInput)

Thanks @aa2zz6, I figured I was missing something  simple. I just couldn't see it!

I also had to move this line

    $sUserInput = GUICtrlRead($idInput)
to here:

   Case $idBtn
    $sUserInput = GUICtrlRead($idInput)
    GUIDelete()
    ExitLoop
 

Now it's working!

 Cheers!

      Hey Guys,
      Maybe you can help me with something small.
      It is not terrible but it slows down my script and after a while even crash the script.

      First i explain what i have;
      I have a GUI with a lot of GUICtrlCreateInput controls, lets say 600 pieces.
      All the controls are hidden when the GUI is displayed, i have 3 buttons attached to 200 pieces each.
      When i press button-1 the first 200 controls are showed,
      When i press button-2 the first 200 controls are hidden and the next 200 controls are showed,
      etc, etc.
      This is working perfectly but after a while the GUI is getting slower and slower.
      After a while the controls aren't responding anymore and the script crashes.
      When i compile the script to 64-Bits version the speed is a lot better but you can still see the script slowing down each time i use the buttons.
      I think there has to be a buffer somewhere that is filling each time i show and hide the controls, but how can i clear that buffer without restarting the script?
      Deleting and re-creating the controls didn't help, deleting the entire gui (and controls) and re-creating it didn't help also.
      The only thing that is working is restarting the script.

      Thanks guys!

      PS: If you need a working example i can add it to this topic, just let me know. It is not rocket science, i just create the controls and show/hide them with a while loop and 3 buttons.

      ProxAllium
      ProxAllium is a GUI frontend to Tor, it aims to make the usage of Tor easier by directly exposing its SOCK5 proxy which can be used to access the Tor network. The GUI is designed to be simple and user-friendly and it has a few other features... namely:
      Fully portable - doesn't write outside its own directory Integrated with Tor via the controller interface and properly communicates with it Minimize to tray Option to start with Windows Interface to configure bridges if Tor is censored in your region Many customization options are available via the config.ini file Screenshots:
      The code is made with pure AutoIt, is fully open source and you are free to adapt it to your needs
      The GitHub repository hosts all the releases and code. As a bonus it has a somewhat sparsely documented Tor UDF which can be used to control Tor, the code also demonstrates the proper usage of my Process UDF which might be interesting if you want to deal with processes.
       
      As some of my friends know, I no longer use Windows as my main operating system. I switched to Linux a few months back as my primary operating system and haven't looked back since. Unfortunately that meant I could no longer use my own program due to it being Windows only... after a few months of playing around with C and making a basic program, I have decided to rewrite all of ProxAllium into C and make it cross-platform. Sadly this means that the AutoIt version of ProxAllium will not receive any major updates now.
      Let me know if this is something you guys would use, I used it daily with my IRC client to connect via Tor (to protect my I.P). I hope you enjoy using my program!

      Hello again 
      I need to click this Submit button, but it's in a lightbox and has no ID (i think) and I can't figure out a way to target it. _IEFormSubmit doesn't work.

      Hi, when I call a MsgBox function I can use a "$MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION" flag so it will be displayed "on the current active desktop, even if there is no user logged on to the computer.". That works just great. Is there a way to do the same to Autoit GUI Form so it will be visible on desktop even if running from system account and user is not logged?
