Reading Gui Text

11 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create a GUI that allows a user to enter text into a text box then type the text they entered into an open program in Windows. Is that possible? Here is my current code.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GuiCreate("PRIDE", 200, 100)

GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Enter 1st Named Insured:", 15, 10)
$input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput ("", 10, 30, 175, 22)
GUISetState()

$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("OK",  40, 70, 50)
$cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Cancel",  100, 70, 50)

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    

    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $cancelbutton
            ExitLoop

        Case $msg = $okbutton
            GUICtrlRead($input1)
            GUIDelete()
            Sleep (2000)
            Run(GUICtrlRead($input1))
            Exit            

    EndSelect
Wend

GUIDelete()

Exit

How about this one ? You have a input control that allows multiple lines - how to you use a button to capture the text into a variable?

Thanks in advance - also thought it fit right with this post.

does this have anything to do with it - $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON ?

********edit

nevermind that will not work

I need it to copy all text at time of button press, not on enter as this will - in my example - do a @cr

The line in smoke's code does just that, if it's an edit control it should still get all the text

$INPUT1DATA = GUICtrlRead($input1);<< You could store the input in a variable

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Sorry, about that - I was using the wrong function.

GUISetOnEvent($VAR, "function1") not the right command

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($VAR, "function1") - write command

I guess I copied the wrong part - it all works good now. I should of tested the button press - just to make sure it was doing something, which after further test showed. I then looked at the command and compared it with my older code and Hurray - I found it.

Thanks for making me triple check - I guess third time is the charm.

Again, thanks for your help, Iwas going crazy.

Now that I am able to read the data - is there a way to post data? I have tried the following but it will stop and not go to the next line. Any ideas on how to make this happen - the field itself is able to send multiline data back to clipboard. Do I have to paste the data to clipboard first and then get it from there and then paste it to the textbox.

GUICtrlSetData ( $GUI_TEXT_USER, "What is the persons first and last name?:::::" & @CR & "What customer and site is the person calling from?:::::" & @CR & "What is the customer stating is wrong?:::::")

edit

fixed grammar

Never mind I think I found it under - _GUICtrlEditReplaceSel - if I cannot get this I hope someone will still be able to help me.

edit 2

Well that does not look like it going to work either.
