Accept only numbers

12 posts in this topic

Please help,

I'm trying to figure a way to allow only numbers in my input box, but I'm failing. Could someone give me a hint. I tried inserting this piece of code, but it's not working. Perhaps i'm inserting wrong, or it's just flat out wrong.

If Number($Input_2) > 0 Then

Select

Case $msg = $Button_3

exitloop

EndSelect

Else

$err = MsgBox(5, "Error", "A number is required")

If $err = 2 Then

Exit

EndIf

EndIf

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

GuiCreate("MyGUI", 142, 53,-1, -1 , BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

$Input_2 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("Number Only", 10, 10, 120, 30)
$Button_3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("OK", 110, 120, 50, 21)

GuiSetState()
$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
       $msg = GUIGetMsg()
       Select
           Case $msg = $Button_3
               exitloop
       EndSelect
Wend
if $msg = -3 Then
    Exit
    EndIf
MsgBox (4096, "Test", GUICtrlRead($Input_2))

Thanks for the quick reply BigDod! I could not find this style in the help section. For furture reference is there a master list?

Another question if you guys don't mind... My code now accepts only numbers, and I set a max limit of 6 characters; which is what I want. However, I would also like to set a minimum of 4 characters that can be entered. I.E. So if I enter 3 characters the program should not proceed.

Do I need another while loop? to include this code:

$msg1 = 1

While $msg1 = 1

GUICtrlRead ($input_2)

If < 999 Then

$min = MsgBox(5, "Error", "Enter more than 3 digits")

If $min = 2 Then

Exit

EndIf

Else

$msg1 = 0

EndIf

WEnd

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GuiCreate("MyGUI", 170, 200,-1, -1 , BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

$Input_2 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 120, 30,$ES_NUMBER)
$Button_3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("OK", 110, 120, 50, 21)
GUICtrlSetLimit (3, 6)

GuiSetState()
$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
       $msg = GUIGetMsg()
       Select
           Case $msg = $Button_3
               exitloop
       EndSelect
Wend
if $msg = -3 Then
    Exit
    EndIf
MsgBox (4096, "Test", GUICtrlRead($Input_2))

You can use this

If StringLen(GUICtrlRead($Input_2)) < 4 Then
ToolTip("Please enter more than 4 digits")
Return
GUICtrlSetLimit($Input_2, 6, 4)?

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

$Button_3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("OK", 110, 120, 50, 21)

;GUICtrlSetLimit (3, 6)<---------------ID of 3 cannot be guaranteed for Input2

MsgBox (4096, "Test", GUICtrlRead($Input_2))

NB your SetLimit(3,6) is not a good idea. It might work since your edit was the second thing created, but if in the future it could fall over if you add any components before it. Best to do it the way I did in my change to your code.

GUICtrlSetLimit($Input_2, 6, 4)?

Well i tried that and you still can enter as many chars as you want as long as it's below 6, the minimum didn't really work.

NO, you can't have a minimum setting for the number of characters in an edit, how would you enter the first character?

Ha! That's what I get for never using a function (and not RTFM!!) :)
