Detecting when GuiCtrlInput change it Value?

7 posts in this topic

Is there a way to automatically call a function via GuiRegisterMsg or some Gui Event handling to detect when an Input Control or an Edit Control change it value? ie when a key is pressed when have focus.

I know you can use HotKeySet() to detect some keys and also you can use the while loop to check if an input control value has changed, but I want to know if there is another approach.

Another question, How can I select all the text in an input Control when it get the focused?

thanks in advance

Something to look at being an input control is a 1 line edit control

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3> ; used for Lo/Hi word

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

$Debug_Ed = False ; Check ClassName being passed to Edit functions, set to True and use a handle to another control to see it work

On tab, tab to it, it should select it all, using the mouse over-rides the selection

Re: Second Question

I do something similar with one of my GUIs. After the main button is pressed, a series of events happen, last of which, I set a flag variable.

In the main GUI loop outside of the select case, I check for the flag. If the window's active and the flag is set, I highlight the main input box and select all the text in it.

If WinActive($hwndGUI) Then
        HotKeySet("{ESC}", "MyExit2")
        If $i_runFlag Then
            $i_runFlag = 0
            ControlSend($hwndGUI, "", $nptIndex, "{end}{shiftdown}{home}{shiftup}")
        EndIf
    Else
        HotKeySet("{ESC}")
    EndIfoÝ÷ Ú[ej׫¢x-jëh×6     Case $btnGo
            $prevclip = ClipGet()
            GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $hwndGUI)
            $varTemp = _PrimaryDataLoop()
            ClipPut($prevclip)
            _LoliCheck()
            GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hwndGUI)
            Switch $varTemp
                Case 2
                    WinActivate($hwndCRU)
                Case 3
                    WinActivate($c)
                    WinActivate($a)
                Case 10 To 25000
                    WinActivate($hwndGUI)
                Case Else
                    WinActivate($varWin)
            EndSwitch
            DBP($version, "Awaiting new input" & @LF, 0, 0)
            $i_runFlag = 1 ; :::this is the key here:::

It's included in the install of AutoIt.
