A scrap not a script

Recommended Posts

I started using AutoIt Guis. It works nice at the moment.

One thing is missing: CTRL+A for selecting everything in a an editbox.

So I created a simple function that does this.

Put this anywhere in your script.

HotKeySet("^a", "SelectAll"); CTRL+A
Func SelectAll()
Send("^{HOME}")
Send("^+{END}")
EndFunc

If an edit/input control has focus, you can also select text this way:

$EM_SETSEL = 0xB1;
GuiSendMsg($inputGuiRefNumber, $EM_SETSEL, 0, 99999)

0 to 99999 is the range of characters to select.

I think that LPARAM of -1 selects all text...

How about: Send("{^ a}")

Worked for me.
