pressing a Guibutton and pasting something in the current GUI field

4 posts in this topic

Hey i want to make a few GUI buttons ,

when a button is pressed i want it to put some text in a gui input field....

i have the buttons and i have the field but i cant find a way to make a text go into that field when i press the button....

thanks..

i made 20+ buttons each have a differnt symbol and needs to paste differnt text...

this is one of the icons for example...

$icons[11] = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "{{}W{}}", 370 , 340 , 25 , 25, $BS_BITMAP )

GUICtrlSetImage ( -1, @ScriptDir & "\Symbols\" & "W.bmp" )

thanks

Like this?

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

Global $aButton[21]
$aButton[0] = 20

Dim $ButtonLeft = 20
Dim $ButtonTop = 20

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test GUI", 340, 300)
GUISetOnEvent(-3, "_Exit")

For $i = 1 To $aButton[0]
    If ($i = 6) Or ($i = 11) Or ($i = 16) Then
        $ButtonTop += 60
        $ButtonLeft = 20
    EndIf
    
    $aButton[$i] = GUICtrlCreateButton(Chr($i + 64), $ButtonLeft, $ButtonTop, 50, 50, $BS_ICON)
    GUICtrlSetImage(-1, "shell32.dll", $i)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_SetText")
    $ButtonLeft += 60
Next

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 270, 290, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func _SetText()
    Local $iText = GUICtrlRead(@GUI_CtrlId)
    GUICtrlSetData($hInput, $iText)
EndFunc

Almost ... only missing 2 things...

1. I have a lot of "GUICtrlCreateInput"

using your script i cant put the data on the current GUICtrlCreateInput (when the mouse is currently at)

2. pressing the button will delete the input already there and put a new input (i want to add input to the input already there)..

what i tried to do is something like this

$currfocus = ""

$lastfocus = ""

$msg = 0

$prevmsg = 0

While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

$prevmsg = $msg

WEnd

For $i = 0 To $iconsnum-1

If ( $msg == $icons[$i] ) Then

If ( StringLeft ( $lastfocus, 4 ) == "Edit" ) Then

ControlFocus ( "Configuration Panel", "", $lastfocus )

Send ( GUICtrlRead ( $msg ) )

EndIf

EndIf

Next

EDIT////

OK im left only with the problem that the data gets deleted every time i press the button,,

thanks/

OK i dont get it ...

i manage to solve my problem but in a trial and error kinda way..

thats part of the code in the end ( i managed to make it work but i dont really know how>?

GUISetState ()
$currfocus = ""
$lastfocus = ""
$msg = 0
$prevmsg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT    
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
$prevmsg = $msg
;$prevmsg = 0
    If ( $currfocus <> ControlGetFocus ($botname)) Then
    $lastfocus = $currfocus
        $currfocus = ControlGetFocus ( $botname)
    EndIf
        For $i = 0 To $iconsnum-1 step 1
        If ( $msg == $icons[$i] ) Then
            If  ( StringLeft ( $lastfocus, 4 ) == "Edit" ) Then
                ControlFocus ($botname, " ", $lastfocus )

                if $lastfocus="Edit4" Then
                    $tempdata=(GUICtrlRead($msg))
                    $tempdata2= GUICtrlRead ($Sell_Messege)&$tempdata
                    GUICtrlSetData ($Sell_Messege,$tempdata2)
                EndIf
                if $lastfocus="Edit3" Then
                    $tempdata=(GUICtrlRead($msg))
                    $tempdata2= GUICtrlRead ($BUY_Messege)&$tempdata
                    msgbox (4096, "you pressed,", $tempdata)
                    GUICtrlSetData ($BUY_Messege,$tempdata2)
                    EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
