ControlSetText not working if control inside a tab?

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'd like my GUI to check users IP addy, triggered when they select a checkbox.

As the function is checking I want to replace the text with "checking..." and then have the function return the IP addy to the GUI.

This all should work using the ControlSetText (and does), but if the text being changed is within a tab it just places the text over the top of the text it should replace.

After some testing with the code below, recreating my main GUI code one step at a time in reverse I was able to narrow it down to the tab causing the problem.

Has anyone came across this and know of a work around?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
$PublicIP = "                                     "
GUICreate("ControlSetText",600, 400)

$tab=GUICtrlCreateTab (10,10, 580,345)

;-------------Hosting---------------
$tab0=GUICtrlCreateTabitem ( "Hosting")

   GUICtrlCreateGroup ("      IP Monitor ", 310, 120, 270, 60)
      $IPMSwitch = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox ("", 322, 122, 10, 10)
      GUICtrlSetOnEvent($IPMSwitch, "Change")

      $IPMText1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Your current IP Address is: ", 320, 140)
      $IPMText2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($PublicIP, 450, 140)

   GUICtrlCreateGroup ("",-99,-99,1,1) ;close group

GUICtrlCreateTabitem ("")  ; end tabitem definition

GUISetState()

While 1
  Sleep(1000)
Wend

Func Change()
    ControlSetText("ControlSetText", "                                    ", "Static2", "checking....")
    Sleep(1000)
    $PublicIP = Change2()
;ControlSetText("ControlSetText", "checking....", "Static2", "DONE!")
      ControlSetText("ControlSetText", "checking....", "Static2", $PublicIP)
EndFunc

Func Change2()
       ;get IP code here
    Return "DONE!"
EndFunc

Installing the autoit-v3.1.1.98 beta has fixed it.

However text boxes no longer go grey when set to $GUI_DISABLE

Regarding the text box not going grey issue, I see it was a bug that was fixed in 3.1.1.84

Has it come back in 3.1.1.98?
