Can I set focus on an input control without selecting all its text?

4 posts in this topic

$i_GUIEntTxtItem = GUICtrlCreateInput(.... ) ; create input box

...

GUICtrlSetState($i_GUIEntTxtItem, $GUI_FOCUS) ; set focus on input box

sets the focus correctly, but also selects all existing text in the input control.

Is it possible to set the focus on the input control without selecting the text?

I want to avoid using a workaround like ControlSend($i_GUIEntHandle, "", $i_GUIEntTxtItem, "{RIGHT}") to achieve this, because ControlSend() should now be avoided within HotKey event handlers.

Thanks

Nick

Well, you can use the ControlClick() :whistle: ...

$hGui = GuiCreate(....)
$i_GUIEntTxtItem = GUICtrlCreateInput(.... )
...
GUICtrlSetState($i_GUIEntTxtItem, $GUI_FOCUS)

GuiSetState()

ControlClick($hGui, "", $i_GUIEntTxtItem)
