Problem with StringReverse in a GUI

Recommended Posts


so i wanted to make a little script that lets you input a text and when you press the button the text should be reversed and saved into a variable named $revText and written in the console.

My probelm now is that the text gets converted into "3" all the time :(

The thing is that it works when i do it without a gui and just an inputbox and consolewrite.

my second problem is that the label should change into that reversed text after i press the button.

MFG Aaron ;)



heres the code:


#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$formMain = GUICreate("reverse some shit bro :)", 356, 211, 300, 152)
$inputText = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 8, 329, 21)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFBF0)
$buttonReverse = GUICtrlCreateButton("REVERSE!", 16, 136, 323, 57, $WS_GROUP)
GUICtrlSetCursor (-1, 3)
$labelReversed = GUICtrlCreateLabel("coming soon :)", 16, 40, 327, 89)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         Case $buttonReverse
            Global $revText = StringReverse($inputText)
            $labelReversed = $revText
            ConsoleWrite ($revText)

You are reading the control data wrong, this is the proper line to use.

Global $revText = StringReverse(GUICtrlRead($inputText))


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
