Sending a keystroke ( {enter} ) to an edit box

Recommended Posts

Hi there, i've been looking at the forums for my problem but couldnt get the script to work

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <controlsendplus.au3>

GUICreate("StOrFoxx", 800, 600, "", "")
$html = GUICtrlCreateButton("<HTML>", 620, 50, 60, 20, $BS_FLAT)
$endhtml = GUICtrlCreateButton("/", 690, 50, 30, 20, $BS_FLAT)
$body = GUICtrlCreateButton("<BODY>", 620, 80, 60, 20, $BS_FLAT)
$endbody = GUICtrlCreateButton("/", 690, 80, 30, 20, $BS_FLAT)
$edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit( "", 10, 50, 600, 540 )

While 1
  $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    Case $msg = $html
      ControlSendPlus( "StOrFoxx", "", $edit, "<HTML>", 0 )
    Case $msg = $endhtml
      ControlSendPlus( "StOrFoxx", "", $edit, "</HTML>", 0 )
    Case $msg = $body
      ControlSendPlus( "StOrFoxx", "", $edit, "<BODY>", 0 )
    Case $msg = $endbody
      ControlSendPlus( "StOrFoxx", "", $edit, "</BODY>", 0 )

    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

As you see I'm making a program to help starting webdesigners learning HTML. :(

When I click on a button it will add the text to $edit, but I need to have a {enter} after it so it continues at the next line in $edit.

For example: I press the button for creating the <html> tag in the $edit, this comes at line 1. After that I'll press the button for the <body> tag, with destination line 2

I'm using the ControlSendPlus() function.. ( Thanks :D )

I would be gratefull if anyone knows the answer on this question :)

Edit: Added the include controlsendplus.au3

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
