Gui newbie has a question.  Why is the _GUICtrlEdit_Create in the program (select No) not resizing the edit window.  I can't figure out what parameter I've not set correctly.

As an aside other than the $hWnd what's the advantage/difference of using _GUICtrl functions over GUICtrl?  Thanks.

#AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y    ;use this to debug in console window <--- LOOK
#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>


$ans = MsgBox(4, "", "Run resizeable?")

If $ans = 6 Then

    $hGUI = GUICreate(@ScriptName, 500, 400, 700, 300, BitOR($WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    $hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("This is resizeable.", 0, 0, 500, 400, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_WANTRETURN, $WS_VSCROLL))
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    While 1
        $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $Msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
        EndSelect
    WEnd

Else

    $hGUI = GUICreate(@ScriptName, 500, 400, 700, 300, BitOR($WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
    $hEdit = _GUICtrlEdit_Create($hGUI, "This is NOT resizeable. Outer GUI is.", 0, 0, 500, 400, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_WANTRETURN, $WS_VSCROLL))
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    While 1
        $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $Msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit
        EndSelect
    WEnd

EndIf

Here a simple way to perform it :

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Resize", 500, 400, 700, 300, BitOR($WS_MAXIMIZEBOX, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_SIZEBOX), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
Global $hEdit = _GUICtrlEdit_Create($hGUI, "This is NOT resizeable. Outer GUI is.", 0, 0, 498, 380, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL, $ES_WANTRETURN, $WS_VSCROLL))
GUISetState()
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZING, WM_SIZING)

While 1
  Switch GUIGetMsg()
    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
      Exit
  EndSwitch
WEnd

Func WM_SIZING($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
  Local $tRect = _WinAPI_GetClientRect($hWnd)
  _WinAPI_MoveWindow($hEdit, 0, 0, $tRect.right, $tRect.bottom, True)
  Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>WM_SIZING

@Nine Thanks that certainly works.  I still would like to know if a parameter can fix the _GUICtrlEdit_Create to work like the GUICtrlCreateEdit code and why the outer border is resizable and the inner is not.

@Melba23 Thanks that explains a lot, and the scary part is I think I understand it.  It looks like handles are preferable in most cases.

ahha,

Not so. Using native AutoIt controls means you can use native functions to modify them without difficulty. As with most things, there are pros and cons.

      I am attempting to draw multiple edit controls partially overlapping, creating the appearance of a single huge label.
      This is for a read only report.  Unfortunately, each box comes with its own quaint little black edge.
      How do I remove this black edge?

      My code.
      Does not work
      ;~ [optional] Control styles: ;~ $ES_AUTOHSCROLL - Automatically scrolls text to the right by 10 characters when the user types a character at the end of the line. ;~ $ES_AUTOVSCROLL - Automatically scrolls text up one page when the user presses the ENTER key on the last line. Local $hEditNewText = _GUICtrlEdit_Create($hGUI, "This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Line", 8, 500, 715, 100) Local $iStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_STYLE) ; get style Local $iExStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_EXSTYLE) ; get extended style ;GUICtrlSetStyle($hEditNewText, BitXOR($iStyle, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL)) ; remove hscroll left to right (force wrap) GUICtrlSetStyle($hEditNewText, BitAND($iStyle, BitNOT($ES_AUTOHSCROLL))) https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Setting_Styles
      Also tried this
      ;~ https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/113598-solved-scrolling-read-only-text-display-using-edit-not-input-control/ Local $hEditNewText = GUICtrlCreateEdit("This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Line", 8, 500, 715, 100) Local $iStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_STYLE) ; get style Local $iExStyle = _WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle($hEditNewText), $GWL_EXSTYLE) ; get extended style GUICtrlSetStyle($hEditNewText, BitAND($iStyle, BitNOT($ES_AUTOHSCROLL)))  
      However, this works:
      Local $hEditNewText = GUICtrlCreateEdit("This is a test" & @CRLF & "Another Line", 8, 500, 715, 100, $ES_WANTRETURN + $WS_VSCROLL + $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $ES_MULTILINE + $WS_TABSTOP) My question stands. How to change the STYLE of an EDIT control?

      I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.
      Array Content:
      [x][0]FileName.mp4
      [x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number
      [x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)
      In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.
      To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.
      Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:
      ; Snippets from script ; I read the text file at the bottom and put the .mp4 filenames in $aManifest[x][0] and UsageCount in $aManifest[x][1] ; Then I create a GUI to display the .mp4 filenames with checkboxes and the UsageCount to the right. UsageCount is editable by the user. ; If the filename is checked, I want to read the filename into $aCheckedVideos[x][0] and the updated UsageCount in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] ; The GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) with Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED works for the checkboxes ; This section puts the filenames in the GUI with a checkbox For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sMP4Text = $aManifest[$i][0] $iMP4Length = StringLen($sMP4Text) $aVideoName[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sMP4Text,$iLeft, $iTop) $iTop += 30 Next ; This section reads numbers from the Manifest array, and I want to be able to change the number and have them saved. ; So the Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED won't work here, and I can't figure out what I should be doing here. For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sUsageText = $aManifest[$i][1] $aUsageCount[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput($sUsageText,$iLeft, $iTop, 50,18, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetPos($aUsageCount[$i],200) $iTop += 30 Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $idCloseGUI For $i = 0 To $iMMNewCount Step 1 Switch GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][0] = $aManifest[$i][0] ; If checked, I put the results into a two D array Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ; where Video Name is $aCheckedVideos[x][0] EndSwitch Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i] ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to EndSwitch ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing. Next ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ;The txt file I'm reading has the following: ;~ /** Title #1: Big Buck Bunny 1080p **/ ;~ "Name": "Big Buck Bunny", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9999, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 45, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 2, ;~ /** Title #2: Tears of Steel 4K **/ ;~ "Name": "Tears of Steel 4K", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9876, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 0, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 5, I am certain that the section
                          Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i])
                              Case $GUI_CHECKED
                                  $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]    ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
                              Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                                ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to
                          EndSwitch                                            ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing.

      is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?
      The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working.
      Help is truly appreciated!

      I hope someone explain me how to do that... well, if you run the command netstat -a inside cmd prompt he look nice( indented ) but if you try to show the output inside the GUICtrlCreateEdit he look without indentation... how can I  fix it? Thx
      $Pid = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "netstat -a",@ScriptDir,@SW_HIDE,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) Dim $_StderrRead='', $_StdoutRead='', $_StdReadAll='' While ProcessExists ( $Pid ) $_StderrRead = StderrRead ( $Pid ) If Not @error And $_StderrRead <> '' Then GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "Error: " & $_StderrRead & @Crlf ,1) EndIf $_StdoutRead = StdoutRead ( $Pid ) If Not @error And $_StdoutRead <> '' Then GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "Log: " & $_StdoutRead & @Crlf ,1) EndIf Wend
