Help with Edit Box

20 posts in this topic

I'm basicly trying to make it to where when I press "$Button2", it loads the text "Hi" into the $edit1 edit box. I've been reading the help file for a while, I couldnt figure it out.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <funktions.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\Koda\Forms\AForm1.kxf
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Custom Skills", 217, 211, 322, 204)
$edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 8, 121, 193, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_VSCROLL))
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 136, 40, 75, 25, 0)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Load", 136, 72, 75, 25, 0)

you could edit this to match your button

CODE
GUISetState()

While 1

$cursorinfo = GUIGetCursorInfo($window)

If $cursorinfo[4] = $Edit1 Then

If $cursorinfo[2] = 1 Then

GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "")

EndIf

EndIf

WEnd

Moving too slow today I suppose... and making things more complicated. :)

Alright, so I got that to work, but the problem is, I'm wanting it to load everything thats inside a .ini file. And its only listening one line of it... I want it to load every line in the .ini file one by one like it was a list, only its an edit box instead...

Heres the main "Script":

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <funktions.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\Koda\Forms\AForm1.kxf
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Custom Skills", 217, 211, 322, 204)
$edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 8, 121, 193, BitOR($ES_AUTOVSCROLL,$ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_WANTRETURN,$WS_VSCROLL))
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 136, 40, 75, 25, 0)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Load", 136, 72, 75, 25, 0)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Help", 136, 104, 75, 25, 0)
$Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 136, 8, 75, 25, 0)
$Button5 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 136, 176, 75, 25, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button2 
            Execute(loadini1())
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Heres the "Loadini1()" function:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
Func loadini1()
    $file = FileOpen("customskills.ini", 0)
; Check if file opened for reading OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Make sure customskills.ini is in the same directory as Bot.exe.")
    Exit
EndIf

; Read in lines of text until the EOF is reached
While 1
    $line = FileReadLine($file)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    GuiCtrlSetData($edit1,$line) 
Wend
;FileClose($file)
EndFunc

Thanks again.

That worked too, but it still doesnt load the ini file line by line. It just reads the first line.

It will NEVER work using FileOpen() on the ini file

Instead use

IniReadSectionNames() ;; Returns an array of the section names

and

IniReadSection() ;; This will return a two dimension array with the Key and Value

Edit:

You might also want to take a look at the INI UDF I posted in Example Scripts yesterday for Ini functions and examples of hou to use the arrays I mentioned above.

^Yeah, thats what I was using before all of this, the problem is, I dont want it to read the Keys. I was trying to get it to read everything under the [sectionName], but I just couldnt figure it out. Like say my .ini looks like:

-----------------

[sectionHere]

blah1

blah2

blah3

blah4

----------------

Could you give an example on how to make that appear in a edit box like this:

-------------

blah1

blah2

blah3

blah4

-------------

Thanks.

well inis have keys so make your ini

[section]

0 = blah

1 = blah

2 = blah

Global $var
$var =  IniReadsection ("name", "section")

Returns a 2 dimensional array where element[n][0] is the key and element[n][1] is the value.

$I_Sec = INIReadSection($Ini, $Section)
$Out = ''
For $I = 1 To $I_Sec [0][0]
 $Out &= $I_Sec[$I][0] & @CR
Next
GUICtrlSetData($Ctrl, StringTrimRight($Out, 1))

Look at the UDF I mentioned

Yeah, but I'm trying to make something like a "Script Editor" so whoever is using it can add theyre own code. I mean I dont want them to have to write:

[section]

0 = Send {"R"}

1 = Sleep (300)

2 = Sleep (500)

So basicly I just want it to be like a simple notepad.

Thanks.

If anyone has any example scripts of a custom-made notepad/script editor or something like that, that would help alot also.

Thanks again for all your help. I'm gonna keep trying to figure this out.

you could have them enter there code into notepad and then use filereadline and then have your script automatically create an ini form what they enter.

FileReadLine is very slow. Better method is to read it to an array and then work with that. Each FileReadLine starts at the top of the script again to get the line. It's ok for 1 or 2 lines but after that it's not much good unless you know the specific line number to read.

For instance if you wanted to read lines 2, 16 and 42

It starts at the top and moves to line 2

It returns to the top and then moves down to read line 16

It returns to the top and then moves down to line 42

It doesn't go to 2 then jump to 16 and then to 42.

So you can see that it's going to be slow even if you put it in a loop

For $I = 1 To 10
  $Out = FileReadLine($File, $I)
Next

Will read the first 10 lines using the same method as above.

Reading it to an array it will just jump straight to the correct element number
