stdinread?

4 posts in this topic

Is there a command or similar function I can use to do a stdinread? It seems there is not one included in the beta help file. I am making a telnet client that has it's interface in notepad and am trying to find an easy was to get what the user typed in so I can send it to the REAL telnet client. (similar in style to a telnet "redirector" posted on these forums. Thanks!

I think WinGetText() should enough to read text-input from notepad.

You could also search for _IsPressed and search for some hooks.

But why would you want to use notepad if you could create a simple gui with koda or guibuilder in a few seconds?

Thanks for your help! I don't know how I missed that command while looking through the reference. I am using notepad as a starter but the program will allow you to use any program with text based input to become your console, freeing you from having to open windows unnecessarily when you can use one you already have open.
