GuiCtrlCreateEdit Problem ?

Recommended Posts

`Hello There,

 

Recently my VDI was updated with a newer version of Windows 10 Version 1809 (Build 17763.805)

From that, I have trouble with GuiCtrlCreateEdit. Simply it won't create an edit box on the GUI.

Previously :

$hFED = GUICtrlCreateEdit($file, 8, 8, 593, 357, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL,  $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_READONLY))

This worked, but the Edit box won't appear anymore after the Windows 10 update.

 

Now :

$hFED1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit($file, 8, 8, 593, 257, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL,  $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_READONLY))
$hFED = GuiCtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 8, 593, 257, BitOR($WS_VSCROLL,  $ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_READONLY))

The Edit Box will appear only with this code. Only the $hFED EditBox appears! How do i know it?  Because when I attached $file to $hFED EditBox it won't appear again on the GUI. It's even more strange how can it get data from $file when it is not attached to $hFED EditBox.

 

Screenshots: Notice the code below

After changing the code and creating double GUICtrlCreateEdit the EditBox appears.

Thank you.

The 2 editboxes are on top of each other, you're using the same coordinates for both 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.

Yes, exactly I need to put two edit boxes on each other so they can appear properly. If I put only one edit box that edit box will not appear.

Post your script, or a runnable version that shows the same issue. Otherwise we're not really able to help.

Well, I fixed the issue. I don't know why but the $file (a text file that was log file) was maybe too big (198 KB) for guictrlcreateedit. When I cleared the text file the editbox appeared again.

MS says : the default limit for the amount of text a user can enter in an edit control is 32,767 characters.

I think, you can increase this limit with _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText :

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

_Example()

Func _Example()
    Local $idEdit
    GUICreate("Edit Append Text", 400, 300)
    $idEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("Line 1 - This is a test" & @CRLF & "Line 2 - Another Line", 2, 2, 394, 268)

    ; Gets the current text limit for an edit control
    ConsoleWrite('1. _GUICtrlEdit_GetLimitText($idEdit) = ' & _GUICtrlEdit_GetLimitText($idEdit) & @CRLF)

    ; Sets a new text limit 
    _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText($idEdit, 1500000)
    ConsoleWrite('2. _GUICtrlEdit_GetLimitText($idEdit) = ' & _GUICtrlEdit_GetLimitText($idEdit) & @CRLF)

    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    For $i = 1 To 40000
        _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($idEdit, @CRLF & "Line " & $i & " - Append to the end")
    Next

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    Do
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    GUIDelete()
EndFunc   ;==>_Example
