Lots of Buttons on the GUI each needs to paste (add data) to a GUICtrlCreateInput data field.

right now the way i have is

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($icons[26], "TEST")

FUNC TEST()
    $tempdata = (GUICtrlRead($MSGINPUTS))
    $tempdata2 = $tempdata & "{w}" <---- this is the button text i need a better way.
    GUICtrlSetData($MSGINPUTS, $tempdata2)
EndFunc

what i need to insert each time is the Button text (every time i press the button)

and i want to paste the data into the current datafield inside the gui (I can have a few control where there is a place to insert data)

this is not so good -i have over 50 icons on the GUI -i dont want to make a function for each one.

any way you can think about that is better?

thanks

1) Create your buttons as an array

2) Check to see if a button was clicked

3) Execute the function with an argument

Dim $aButton[51], $aButtonText[51]

;$aButton[1] = GUICtrlCreateButton ...
;$aButtonText[1] = "specific text"
;.
;.
;.
;$aButton[51] = GUICtrlCreateButton ...
;$aButtonText[51] = "specific text"

While 1
   $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

   If $nMsg <> 0
      For $nCount=1 To 51
         If $aButton[$nCount] = $nMsg
        ;means that button was clicked
         TEST($aButtonText[$nCount])
         EndIf
      Next 
   EndIf

   Select 
      Case  $nMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         Exit
   EndSelect

WEnd

FUNC TEST($sSpecificData)
    $tempdata = (GUICtrlRead($MSGINPUTS))
    $tempdata2 = $tempdata & $sSpecificData;<---- this is the button text i need a better way.
    GUICtrlSetData($MSGINPUTS, $tempdata2)
EndFunc

Don't know if this will be any more efficient, but it is a different way :)

Thanks ill try that way . look ok except the part where i have to define every text on every button separately

when i define a button for example

$icons[23] = GUICtrlCreateButton("{s}", 100, $POXICONY+30, 25, 25, $BS_BITMAP)

the botton text is {s}

why can i use a command to grab that text if i knwo the botton was pressed?

im sure there is a way.

i dont want to define

$botton_text [$i] ="{s}"

for every button...

I didn't know if the exact button text was what you wanted to have added. If this is the case, then

GUICtrlRead($button[$ncount]) will return the displayed text of the button. This would eliminate the second array.

Thus the call would become:

TEST(GUICtrlRead($aButton[$nCount]))

Good luck!
