SplashTextOn Issue/Bug (Also Posted on Yahoo)

5 posts in this topic

I have an old AutoIt v2.64 script that I've converted to v3.1.

In the old AutoIt version, SplashTextOn would automatically center the

text both horizontally and vertically.

AutoIt v3 only centers the text horizontally with the text pushed up

top vertically. In order to manually center the text vertically, I

have to preface the text with @CR's. It's tough to calculate the

correct number of @CR's to use for different window sizes.

Am I missing something or is this the way it works in v3?

Thanks in advance,

BionicBulldog

From the beta help file

SplashTextOn("Title", "Message goes here.", -1, -1, -1, -1, 32, "", 40)
Sleep(3000)
SplashOff()

The option 32 centres vertically.

So this is resolved in the Beta, but not in the current release. I look forward to the next release for this functionality.

Many thanks.

or you could just switch to the beta, which has alot more features and functions, runs ATLEAST as stable as the last release, and is constantly getting better. That would seem a better option than waiting...

I don't know how it was done inV2 but recentlty the V3 beta has been updated to allow vertical centering. :)
