GUI Edit Box Help

5 posts in this topic

Ok, I have created an Edit Box... My question is, how do I make it so that when the Edit Box is created the default text inside of it is already highlighted? Therefore the user can simply press "Backspace" to delete the default text. Thanks.

Doesn't accept Ctrl + a in edit box. Oh well. Good thing I have a "Clear Box" button :)

Jon, could you add a possibilty for AutoIt to add this into the GUI functions for the next release? That would be cool.

try this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI edit") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$myedit=GUICtrlCreateEdit ("First line"& @CRLF, 176,32,121,97,$ES_AUTOVSCROLL+$WS_VSCROLL)

GUISetState ()

GUICtrlSetData ($myedit, "Second line")

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed

send("{APPSKEY}a")
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
