5 posts in this topic

I wrote a example code of the problem:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

AutoItSetOption ("TrayIconDebug", 1)
;TAB A
Dim $Header_A = "    Ticket"
Dim $NameA, $TotalTimeA, $UnitA, $countA = 32
Dim $TimerActiveA_[50], $LabelA_[50], $TButtonA_[50], $SButtonA_[50], $InputA_[50]; $LabelA_[50]
Dim $TimeA_[50], $TimerA_[50], $sTimeA_[50], $xkA, $ckA, $LeftA = 0, $TopA = 20, $XA
Dim $InputA1_[50], $InputA2_[50]

Global $TimerReseta = 0,$TimerResetb = 0,$TimerResetc = 0,$TimerResetd = 0
AdlibEnable("AllTimers", 500)

GUICreate("   T(egg) Timer", 871, 170,-1 ,-1 )
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)
GUICtrlSetCursor(-1, 0)
$h_tab = GUICtrlCreateTab (-1, -1, 895,170)

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 700)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xCEFFCE)

For $XA = 1 To 8
; row 1
   GUICtrlCreateLabel($Header_A & " " & $XA, $LeftA, $TopA + 25, 80, 20, $SS_CENTER); ticket lable ex: ticket 1

                msgbox(0, "what number?", $urg) ;tried this also, it does not see anything.

I marked the section with the problem. I do not understand why I can change the color of the input field, but I can't read what is entered in it.

Ok, you have:

$urg =GUICtrlread($InputA1_[$ckA], 1); - I need it to read the text in this window

This parameter, like the Helpfile says, returns an array with more info. If you want data only, remove this one.

I do not understand why I can change the color of the input field, but I can't read what is entered in it.

here is your issue:

$urg =GUICtrlread($InputA1_[$ckA], 1); - I need it to read the text in this window

you're using the advanced option 1 that tells the control to return an array, then you try to use $urg as a value, but it's an array. you should change that to option 0 (or remove it) if you don't need the additional state information of the control, or access the text by using $urg[1] i believe.
