I want to check if my input box contains only numbers when its changed

Recommended Posts

Misha

I want to check if my input box contains only numbers when its changed, how will I be doing that?

I tried guictrlsetonevent but the function in there cant get variables so I cant give the function the control name.

Oh and I do not want to make a function for every input..making my bot 300 more lines is not cool ;_;.

Thank you.

check this example it may help you

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("test", 200, 100)

$put_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 180, 25)
$do = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 10, 50, 90, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 600)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $do Then
        If GUICtrlRead ($put_1) = "" Then
            MsgBox (-1, "", "your input is Empty")
        EndIf
        If Number (GUICtrlRead ($put_1)) = 0 Then
        MsgBox (-1, " info ", " no nuber only letters or empty input")
        EndIf
        If Number (GUICtrlRead ($put_1)) <> 0 Then
        MsgBox (-1, " info ", " you have entered this value of Numbers" & @CRLF & @CRLF & Number (GUICtrlRead ($put_1)))
        EndIf
EndIf
WEnd

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If GUICtrlRead ($put_1) And Number (GUICtrlRead ($put_1)) = 0 Then
        MsgBox (-1, "", "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE LETTERS")
        GUICtrlSetData ($put_1, "")
    EndIf
    If $msg = $do Then
        If GUICtrlRead ($put_1) = "" Then
            MsgBox (-1, "", "your input is Empty")

On event doesn't effect the method at all.

Here is a small mod to star2's post

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("test", 200, 100)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode",1)
$put_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 180, 25)
$do = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 10, 50, 90, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 600)
GUISetState()
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "EXITPROG")
$lasted = ''
While 1
   $newed = GUICtrlRead ($put_1)
    If  $newed <> $lasted Then
        $lasted = ''    
        For $nc = 0 To StringLen($newed)
            $cc = StringMid($newed,$nc,1)
            If Asc($cc) >= Asc('0') And Asc($cc) <= Asc('9') Then
                $lasted = $lasted & $cc
            EndIf
        Next
     GUICtrlSetData ($put_1, $lasted)
     EndIf

WEnd

Func ExitPROG()
Exit;   
EndFunc

@star2 - Your method didn't quite work because it allowed digits to be followed by letters since Number still returns a value for '123kkr' say.

Edit: correct error in script

According to Helge

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("test", 200, 100)

$put_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 180, 25,$ES_NUMBER)
$do = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 10, 50, 90, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 600)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
    If $msg = $do Then
        If GUICtrlRead ($put_1) = "" Then
            MsgBox (-1, "", "your input is Empty")
        EndIf
        If Number (GUICtrlRead ($put_1)) <> 0 Then
        MsgBox (-1, " info ", " you have entered this value of Numbers" & @CRLF & @CRLF & Number (GUICtrlRead ($put_1)))
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

Yes, that did make us look a bit silly.

But in our defense, star's method with a small mod does allow for real numbers to be entered.

(Hope you're not going to tell me there's $ES_REAL)

Yea, gafrost I was planning to making that myself, well $ES_NUMBER seems much more simpler.

True, but if you want to use int or real numbers then $ES_NUMBER won't do the job for the reals

@gafrost,

Your EN_CHANGE is the best way, but your _input_changed function is faulty. It allows people to insert letters between digits, which is one of the reasons I modified star's method. You have to check the whole of the edit not just the end.

It was a quick and dirty, shouldn't be that hard to change to what you want.

Replace the function with this one from what I posted above.

Func _Input_Changed(ByRef $input_control)
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If $DebugIt Then _DebugPrint("Input Changed:" & GUICtrlRead($input_control))
    ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Local $tmp_string = GUICtrlRead($input_control), $tmp_char, $tmp_input = ""
    For $x = 1 To StringLen($tmp_string)
        $tmp_char = StringMid($tmp_string, $x, 1)
        If (Asc($tmp_char) >= Asc('0') And Asc($tmp_char) <= Asc('9')) Or Asc($tmp_char) = Asc(".") Then $tmp_input &= $tmp_char
    Next
    GUICtrlSetData($input_control, $tmp_input)
EndFunc   ;==>_Input_Changed
