How to draw a column of text on a button?

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I was using GUICtrlCreateButton() to draw an onscreen keyboard, in which every button stands for a key. Usually the key "1" has "!" in the upper side and "1" in the bottom. So I tried:

$KEY_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("!"&@CRLF&"1", ...)

But it didn't work. Actually it showed just "!1". Could someone please tell me how to make it work or some better ways to draw an onscreen keyboard? Thank you!

You have to add the Style

$BS_MULTILINE 0x2000 Wraps the button text to multiple lines if the text string is too long to fit on a single line in the button rectangle.

Yes, it works! Here's the code:

$KEY_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton(" !    1", ...)
    GUICtrlSetStyle($KEY_1, $BS_MULTILINE)

Thank you!

Just got it, a better way:

$KEY_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("!" & @CRLF     & "1", ...)
    GUICtrlSetStyle($KEY_1, $BS_MULTILINE)

Thank you!
