Set/Unset a style

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm creating an editor and I want the user to switch word wrap on/off.

And I think it's the following style I need to switch: ES_AUTOHSCROLL

I know we can set a style using GUICtrlSetStyle.

But how do I "unset" a style?

Edit: Removed typo

It's my understanding that GuiCtrlSetStyle overwrites any existing style settings (except forced default styles documented in the help file appendix)....

With regard to toggling word wrap, I ran into this probem in my long-abandoned project AutoPad

Setting the word wrap style was not sufficient to make the edit control word wrap. Maybe there is a GuiSendMsg or DllCall that will work, but I ended up creating two edit controls and showing/hiding them as needed.

I'm gonna check out GUIRecvMsg and DllCall.

Thanks for the info, CyberSlug.
