Left Padded New Text Set Into Control

Recommended Posts

AntonioM

Hello AutoIT Forum,

Please help!

I have 3 fields all are VARCHAR2, two input the data right padded, and the other enter the data left padded. I can not change the field type or how the data is padded. My following script does enter the data into the right padded fields with no problems; however, it does not enter the 10 character numeric data into the left padded field. The script does place me in the correct field to enter the data manually. The same control below passes the data to the respective field by simply changing the id number 21.

Left padded: the cursor is at the end of the field and begins to display from end to left as it is entered.

ControlSetText("PRODUCT COMPANY DETAILS","",21,$array[2])

Is there a flag or control command that would allow me to enter the 10 character numeric data into the left padded field?

Thank you.

Are you talking about fields in a database or controls in a GUI? :P

For an input control, left justification (not sure what "left padded field" means) is a style setting. It's $SS_LEFT in AutoIt, and set at the time you create the control:

$Input1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("Text", 10, 10, 100, 20, $SS_LEFT)

Does that have anything to do with what you are asking?

:D

Do you mean that when the data is entered in the left padded inputs the numbers come out reversed?

Hi, thank you for your response; added following the script line above mentioned: Send($array[2]). I works.

Thank you.
