How to make/use a "status" box

Recommended Posts

dickep

I know this has been asked and answered here, but I for the life of me cannot find it.

I have a GUI (really a battery monitoring window) with a "box" that I want to display the status of what the battery information (current and voltage and gas gauge) over time.

Now, I understand that "EditBox" information is finite (4096 characters if I remember correctly).

So, what can I use to display this status information without having an "overflow" issue? The status may be for over 3 hours with reporting done as frequently as every second.

I have tried GUICtrlSetData, but it writes over the topmost line.

I have tried _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText but the limit is reached very early - will not display more so really don't know the status.

Thanks for your help and understanding.

Well according to MSDN the maximum number of characters is 0x7FFE (32766) for Win9X and 0x7FFFFFFE (2147483646) for WinNT/2K/XP.

I think 4096 is the default set by AutoIt when the control is created.

You can increase the maximum number of characters using _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText.

Thanks.

Now, however, I need to have the last line displayed. This shows the first line but hides the bottom "stuff".

I am trying to do this but.... well, I am brain damaged I quess
