Help with RICH TEXT BOX - READ ONLY?

7 posts in this topic

I have tried making a rich text box become read-only, but without success.

I need the ability to tab out of the Rich Text Box, so if it's ReadOnly, that should fix it right?

Do you have any ideas to accomplish this?

I use this code:

$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "MyErrFunc")
$oRP = ObjCreate("RICHTEXT.RichtextCtrl.1")

$richtextbox = GUICtrlCreateObj($oRP, 3, 50, 600, 475)
GUICtrlSetPos($richtextbox, 3, 42, 964, 475)

$oRP.Font = 'Courier New'

;scrollbar setting
$rt_handle = ControlGetHandle($version, "", "RichTextWndClass1")
_SendMessage($rt_handle, $EM_SHOWSCROLLBAR, $SB_VERT, True)

I found this link on MSDN to make a text-box readonly (rich text and tex should share some attributes:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/a...585(VS.71).aspx

But I cannot seem to get the ReadOnly attribute working.

I tried this without succes:

$oRP.ReadOnly = True

Using Beta:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "MyErrFunc")

$oRP = ObjCreate("RICHTEXT.RichtextCtrl.1")

GUICreate("Embedded RICHTEXT control Test", 320, 200, -1, -1, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
$TagsPageC = GUICtrlCreateLabel('Visit Tags Page', 5, 180, 100, 15, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont($TagsPageC, 9, 400, 4)
GUICtrlSetColor($TagsPageC, 0x0000ff)
GUICtrlSetCursor($TagsPageC, 0)
$AboutC = GUICtrlCreateButton('About', 105, 177, 70, 20)
$PrefsC = GUICtrlCreateButton('FontSize', 175, 177, 70, 20)
$StatC = GUICtrlCreateButton('Plain Style', 245, 177, 70, 20)

$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oRP, 10, 10, 400, 260)
GUICtrlSetPos($GUIActiveX, 10, 10, 300, 160)

With $oRP; Object tag pool
    .OLEDrag ()
    .Font = 'Arial'
    .text = "Hello - Au3 supports ActiveX components like the RICHTEXT thanks to SvenP" & @CRLF & 'Try write some text and quit to reload'

    ;.BackColor = 0xff00
EndWith

$rt_handle = ControlGetHandle("Embedded RICHTEXT control Test", "", "RichTextWndClass1")
_GUICtrlEdit_SetReadOnly ($rt_handle, True)

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

It works by turning the box readonly.

Thank you!

But the tabbing does not work.

If I place the cursor in text (to copy something for example) then I cannot tab out and get focus to the buttons on the GUI.

Is there a way to enable tabbing for the box?

Or perhaps catch a pressed tab if focus is on the window and do something? (like jump to a defined button)

I don't know if this will help but try adding the style $WS_TABSTOP to the buttons if you haven't already.

I think I perhaps need to add the style you mentioned to the Rich Text Box.

I use the code.

$richtextbox = GUICtrlCreateObj($oRP, 3, 50, 600, 475)
GUICtrlSetPos($richtextbox, 3, 42, 964, 475)

$rt_handle = ControlGetHandle($version, "", "RichTextWndClass1")
_SendMessage($rt_handle, $EM_SHOWSCROLLBAR, $SB_VERT, True)
_GUICtrlEdit_SetReadOnly($rt_handle, True)

I don't know how to apply the style to the control (handle) or if its possible.

I tried (and other variantions):

_SendMessage($rt_handle, $WS_TABSTOP)

but it did not work.

Can I do this? And how?
