Putting A Limit On Text Boxes

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi JPM

A few weeks ago i asked if it would be possible to put a limit on inputboxes. One guy cam up with a solution which you debated about implementing. I understood your point that it is up to the user to write code to error check. However I have been playing around and found that this would be a very useful addittion to autoit in the sense that i cannot find a way to do it from my end lol.

I need to enter a serial number or IP address I want to use input boxes to split the IP / Serial number. I need the text boxes to only allow a certain amount of charactors. I can and have done error checking once the user presses say the apply button but it would so much better if i could retrict the size on the charactor they enter.

Don't you think the following code is solving your problem?

Global $EM_LIMITTEXT  = 0x00C5

GUICreate("GUI limit input")
$ip0 = GUISetControl ("input", "", 10,  5, 25, 20)
GuiSendMsg($ip0,$EM_LIMITTEXT,3,0)

$ip1 = GUISetControl ("input", "", 40,  5, 25, 20)
GuiSendMsg($ip1,$EM_LIMITTEXT,3,0)

$ip2 = GUISetControl ("input", "", 70,  5, 25, 20)
GuiSendMsg($ip2,$EM_LIMITTEXT,3,0)

$ip3 = GUISetControl ("input", "", 100,  5, 25, 20)
GuiSendMsg($ip3,$EM_LIMITTEXT,3,0)

GuiWaitClose()
MsgBox (4096, "title", GUIRead($ip0), 2)
