Quotation Mark

5 posts in this topic

I am creating a small step-by-step wizard. I created a edit box, within this edit box I want to display the CODE a user should copy/paste into their website for the mod to work. Problem is, my code is quotation marks within it and Autoit sees these as the end of the edit field, is there a way to show the quotation mark by using a special symbol so it ignores that quotation mark and prints it in the edit box?

Not sure I totally understand here. Are you trying to convert plain text to HTML?

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***

No, heres a demo, think of it has a GUI version of a readme.txt, where my .exe autoit script gives step-by-step instructions on how to add a mod to their site.

$ChildGui_3 = GuiCreate("Functions", 400, 260, 5, 5, $WS_POPUP)
$step2 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Step 2 - Functions", 0, 70, 380, 60)
$step2_1 = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Within your FTP, open '/modules/member.php' and copy/paste the following code at the very bottom of this file right before ?>", 0, 110, 380, 60)
$step2_2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("function my_mood(){" & @CRLF "$info = $GLOBALS["Member"]->info();", 0, 140, 380, 100)

GUICtrlSetFont($step2, 9, 800, "", "Arial")
GUICtrlSetFont($step2_1, 9, 400, "", "Arial")

If you notice line 4 of that code I posted, I have "$info = $GLOBALS["Members"]

Well, Autoit sees the " " next to Members as the end of the GuiCtrlCreateEdit, therefore, stopping it.

Can I somehow make autoit ignore these two "" and not stop the line into the final " at the end of the code?

Basically, it's just the code that will appear in an edit box, they can selectall / copy, and paste into their actual .php file.

Easiest way is use single quotes (apostrophes) or double the quotes. Two examples here:

$string = "He said, ""I don't know,"" while shrugging his shoulders."

Or

$string = 'He said, "I don''t know," while shrugging his shoulders.' ; Note the doubled single quote in "don't"

Thank you, solution #1 with double quotes worked great.
