Maybe it's right in front of my nose, but how do you clear a label?

If I do this:

GUICtrlCreateLabel("MODEsddsfsfsfsfsffsfL:",110, 160)

and then

GUICtrlCreateLabel("MODEL:",110, 160)

This will show "MODEL:" but all of this "sddsfsfsfsfsffsfL:" is still there.

Yours sincerely

Look at GUICTRLSetData to change the contents of the label, recreating the label just overlaps the 2 of them.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Why would you create a second label, instead of just using GUICtrlSetData???

Edit: BrewMan beat me to it :)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GuiCreate("Test", 300, 200)
$lblLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("This is a test", 10, 10, 280, 40)
$btnButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Click", 10, 50, 40, 40)


    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            case $btnButton
                GUICtrlSetData($lblLabel, "")
