I am trying to vertically center text in a button I had read Help and none of these code options work can anyone tell me the magic

1

$Enter2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enter", 315, 25, 25, 60, $BS_VCENTER)

2

$Enter2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enter", 315, 25, 25, 60, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_BUTTON,$BS_VCENTER))

3

$Enter2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enter", 315, 25, 25, 60)

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $BS_VCENTER)

Try this

$Enter2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("ENTER",315,25,15,75,$BS_MULTILINE+$BS_VCENTER)

When I test it, they all work (as far as centered vertically). The text is still horizontal, but is centered vertically in the button. Did you think it would change the orientation of the text?

Klexen's only needed $BS_MULTILINE added:

#include <guiconstants.au3>

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 125, 310)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit")
$Enter1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enter1", 50, 10, 25, 60, $BS_VCENTER)
$Enter2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enter2", 50, 80, 25, 60, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_BUTTON,$BS_VCENTER))
$Enter3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enter3", 50, 150, 25, 60)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $BS_VCENTER)
$Enter4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("E" & @CRLF & "n" & @CRLF & "t" & @CRLF & "e" & @CRLF & "r" & @CRLF & "4", 50, 220, 25, 80, $BS_MULTILINE)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(20)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Thanks for the help this is the code modified

CODE
#include <guiconstants.au3>

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

$font = "times new roman"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 125, 310)

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit")

GUISetFont(6, 600, 1, $font)

$Enter5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("E n t e r",50,25,20,60,$BS_MULTILINE+$BS_VCENTER)

$Enter6 = GUICtrlCreateButton("E" & @CRLF & "n" & @CRLF & "t" & @CRLF & "e" & @CRLF & "r" , 50, 220, 20, 60, $BS_MULTILINE+$BS_VCENTER)

GUISetState()

While 1

Sleep(20)

WEnd

Func _Quit()

Exit

EndFunc

Solution 6 is probably better visually however the letters do not exactly line up vertically ("e" is a bit off) centred in the button. I misinterpreted vcenter to mean centred text displayed vertically (1 char per line centred) not horizontally centred text.

Is that as good as it gets?

I guess I don't understand what was meant by "vertically center text in a button". I got the same as the screen shot above, and in each case it looks to me like the text is vertically centered in the button. The shape of the buttons was take from the code in the OP.

Can you give an example of what you wanted it to look like?

Use fixed width fonts, such as Fixedsys/Courier New/Lucida Console/Verdana/etc. Edited by Siao
