Capturing the highlighted text from Edit box

2 posts in this topic

Hi, first of all, I used AutoIt quite a bit for four years. And this is only the second time I've posted a question. That's a testament to the Help Screens and the stability of the product.

So, I'm using GUICtrlCreateEdit. I manually enter some text, then manually highlight (select) just SOME of the text. I then want to click a button that will be aware of the highlighted text. I can't find a control for this. Think of a word processor where you highlight some text and click "Bold", for example, to modify the highlighted text.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, Christopher

You can use _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel() and _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel() or function from GuiRichEdit.au3
