How would I save the contents of a this edit box to a unicode text file?

;====================================================

;================= Example of a GUI =================

;====================================================

; AutoIt version: 3.0.103

; Language: English

; Author: "SlimShady"

;

; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start

; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

;Include constants

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

;Initialize variables

Global $GUIWidth

Global $GUIHeight

$GUIWidth = 300

$GUIHeight = 250

;Create window

GUICreate("New GUI", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight)

;Create an edit box with no text in it

$Edit_1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 10, 10, 280, 190)

;Create an "OK" button

$OK_Btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 75, 210, 70, 25)

;Create a "CANCEL" button

$Cancel_Btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 165, 210, 70, 25)

;Show window/Make the window visible

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

;Loop until:

;- user presses Esc

;- user presses Alt+F4

;- user clicks the close button

While 1

;After every loop check if the user clicked something in the GUI window

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

;Check if user clicked on the close button

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

;Destroy the GUI including the controls

GUIDelete()

;Exit the script

Exit

;Check if user clicked on the "OK" button

Case $msg = $OK_Btn

MsgBox(64, "New GUI", "You clicked on the OK button!")

;Check if user clicked on the "CANCEL" button

Case $msg = $Cancel_Btn

MsgBox(64, "New GUI", "You clicked on the Cancel button!")

EndSelect

WEnd

use GUICtrlRead to get what you typed in the editbox and then FileWrite to write it in a text file or whatever

and your global vars is useless, just use GUICreate("New GUI", 300, 250) to save some lines :)

Example:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 300, 200)

$hEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("Hello world", 10, 10, 280, 150)

$SaveButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 10, 170, 75, 23)

GUISetState()

$hFile = FileOpen("c:\test.txt", 128 + 1)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $SaveButton
            $read = GUICtrlRead($hEdit)
            If $read <> "" Then
                FileWrite($hFile, $read & @CR)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

FileClose($hFile)
ShellExecute("c:\test.txt")
