Input box limit

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys I'm new to auto-it and i've been making a script in gui but i have been loking through the forum to see if i found an answer to my question and got nothing (24hr no sleep) :o . Here is my problem i want to creat and input box and limit the # of characters that can be entered and i was wondering if there is a way to script it on auto-it such that when the user is typing and reaches a certain amount of characecters he wont be able to input any thing else to that box. Is there a way to do this or would I have to code it so that when he subimits the form I will have to check the string length and return to the form giving him and error message.

You can use the following to set the maximum number of characters in an input box. Please note that the current limit is 10. You can change the limit by changing the last 10 to some other number. Hope this is what you are looking for:

InputBox ( "Inputbox", "Please enter something, you can only enter a maximum of 10 characters:" , "", " " & 10)
