How would one be able CTRL+A in a edit or input and select all. Hotkey im guessing, but it wouldnt allow me to. Is there any other way to have the function select all in the edit with text

You could try using _GUICtrlEditSetSel() udf, found in the Help File under

User Defined Function Reference ->GuiEdit Management ->_GUICtrlEditSetSel()

Example using hotkey Ctrl + A to select all...

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

HotKeySet("^a", "SelectAll")

GUICreate("Ctrl + A to Select All", 400, 400)
$EditBox = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 380, 380)

While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
      Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func SelectAll()
    _GUICtrlEditSetSel ($EditBox, 0, -1)

Probly other ways to do it as well, but this was the first example I could think of..
