FileWriteLine question

Hi All,

Just curious if there is a technique to center a line written with filewriteline() in text pad?

Do anyone know? I just want it written in the center of the notepad page.

filewriteline($exampleline)

Since notepad views text as raw data you cannot do any layout on the text, except tabs and newlines (because they are chars).

Test for example writing hello in wordpad and center it, save it and then open it in notepad.


Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!

You can make your edit control to be the Rich edit variety using the last example at the bottom of the page in the help file under

AutoIt > Function Reference > GUI Reference > GUI Control Creation > GUICtrlCreateEdit

There is likely a way to save to .rtf format as well, using AutoIt, but it might require considerable coding. You could start out like I did - open WordPad, write a line of text, center it, save the file as .rtf, then open the file with SciTe and study the code of it.

They don't comply with the latest versions of AutoIt, but Yoan Roblet (Arcker) wrote Auto3Lib which has an include file called A3RichEdit.au3, but I didn't center a way to center text using that.

Just for clarity,

PaulIA wrote the Auto3Lib library, and it was a great contribution to AutoIt. Most of that library is now included in the distribution after having been rewritten/updated by GaryFrost to make it consistent with current AutoIt conventions for naming, variable types, etc.

What arcker posted was AutoItPad. Which depends on PaulIA's Auto3Lib.
