Another Noob Question

7 posts in this topic

I must be reading it wrong - but I would think that the UDF would bring the first line back (text and all) - but this must not be right because everytime I use it - the value is 0 (ZERO)

Func writeINI();_GUICtrlEditGetFirstVisibleLine($h_edit)  - _GUICtrlEditGetLineCount($h_edit)

    $fileINIname = $filenameDEFAULT
    
    MsgBox(0,$fileINIname,$fileINIname & "   "  & _GUICtrlEditGetFirstVisibleLine($GUI_TEXT_USER))
        
    $firstLine = _GUICtrlEditGetFirstVisibleLine($GUI_TEXT_USER)



IniWrite ( $fileINIname, @MON & @MDAY & @YEAR, @HOUR & @MIN, GUICtrlRead($GUI_TEXT_USER))
    

IniWrite ( $fileINIname, @MON & @MDAY & @YEAR, @HOUR & @MIN, $firstLine )

EndFunc

; neither of the IniWrite call gives me the value of the first line - how should I use it or better yet is it even possible?

Thanks for your time,

I am not sure if I made myself clear - I do that a lot. What I need is a way to read the text from a input control and save it to a variable - is this possible and if so what is the function to get it. The one that is above gives me the number of characters after I add some - maybe I am just not getting it.

I added the following to your code - msgbox

While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   Select
      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         ExitLoop
      Case $msg = $Btn_GET
         GUICtrlSetData($Status, "Line Length: " & _GUICtrlEditLineLength ($myedit))
 MsgBox(0, _GUICtrlEditLineLength ($myedit), _GUICtrlEditLineLength ($myedit))

  EndSelect
WEnd

From your example it shows the number 8 when I press the get button - I need the text not the number of chars...does this make sense?

should of paid attention to the below in the above script:

;********************************************************************************
; the controlcommand in the next statement is what you need to look at
;********************************************************************************
GUICtrlSetData($Status, "Line 0: " & ControlCommand("Edit Line Length","","Edit1","GetLine",1))

Sorry once again - I did not know what you were stating - I thought that the button press had something to do with it. Now I see once I run the script the message is equal to what I want. Again sorry - I am still very new to programming and still want to learn but IT IS HARD.
