hotkeyset inside input

Recommended Posts


I found a problem doing it this way... :|

When ever I type text into the input and then go to drag the window around, it will actually "press enter" and input the data in the input even though I never pressed enter.

How can I fix this?

If there is a submit type button available then you can use the $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON style on that button to make enter in the input the same as pressing this button.

Description of $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON from help file:

"Creates a push button with a heavy black border. If the button is in a dialog box, the user can select the button by pressing the ENTER key, even when the button does not have the input focus. This style is useful for enabling the user to quickly select the most likely option, or default."

Check out this example using Accelerators. Click on either input box, type something in, and press enter.

Clicking the button doesn't work correctly though. It returns the buttons text. Gotta work that out.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$GUI = GUICreate("Test", 288, 150, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX)
$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("Enter something here", 44,  20)
$hInput2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Or enter something here", 44, 100)
$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Click or press enter", 95, 50)
$hDummy = GUICtrlCreateDummy()
Dim $hotkey[1][2] = [["{enter}", $hButton]]
While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
        Case $hButton
            $hndl = ControlGetText("", "", ControlGetFocus($GUI))
            MsgBox(0, "Test", "You typed """ & $hndl&'"' & @CRLF & @AutoItVersion)
