GUIRichEdit error

Recommended Posts


re:  RichText from this thread:



Testing RichText, so I copied the sample script from that thread:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiRichEdit.au3>
local $GUI = GUICreate("bye",700,500)
local $hRichText = RichText_Create($GUI, 0, 0, 700, 500)
RichText_InsertText($hRichText, "Hello everybody")
RichText_SetSel($hRichText, 6, 11); Pos 6 to 11 is 'every'
RichText_SetColor($hRichText, 0x0000FF, True); True = colorize selection, False = colorize all.  !!! Color codes is BGR !!!
RichText_SetSel($hRichText, 0, 0); Set the selection to 0-0
While 1
    If GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit


But I am getting this error pointing that RichText_Create is not defined.

RichText is already included in the current AutoIt distribution, and I even copied a copy into the folder where my script resides to no avail.

What gives?

RichText_Create isnt the function name now.. thats why.
