Put text into GUI

Recommended Posts


OK, I am still learning GUI stuff.

So, here is what I would like to do:

Make a GUI with a "text box"

the "text box" will be a large box that will display data collected by various calls. Right now I am monitoring the battery of a laptop so need to build a string and display it. In this "text box" it DO NOT care if I can scroll. It is for display purposes only.

Oh, yeah, the text displayed will be hopefully saved to a file (I can deal with that I think).

So, If y'all could help me figure out how to do the GUI Text display it would be greatly appreciated.

Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)

Local $myedit, $msg

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)


GUICtrlSetData($myedit, "Second line")

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
