$GUI = GUICreate("StringReplace",200,200)
$M1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("Hey, how are you doing?",5,5,190,80)
$M2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("",5,90,190,60)
$BUTTON = GUICtrlCreateButton("REPLACE",50,170,100,20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW,$GUI)

While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = $BUTTON Then
        $REPLACE1 = StringReplace(GUICtrlRead($M1),"Hey,","Ahoy!")
        $REPLACE2 = StringReplace($REPLACE1,"you","ye")
        $REPLACE3 = StringReplace($REPLACE2,"doing","doin'")
        GUICtrlSetData($M2,$REPLACE3)
    ElseIf $MSG = -3 Then
        Exit
    EndIf
    Sleep(15)
WEnd

Wow, great one.

Now, how about, if you just start writing "Hi", it automaticly changes to "Ahoy", Its possible?

Play with this example with different words. In exaple if is found "Hey," will be replace with "Ahoy!", if is found "you" will be replace with "ye", etc. You can replace for example only three times a word with another (the fourth parameter of the function).

If you want the text to change automatically as you type then you can have something like this.

#include <windowsconstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <editconstants.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("StringReplace", 200, 230)
$M1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("Hey, how are you doing?", 5, 5, 190, 80)
$W1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Hey,", 5, 90, 90, 20)
$W2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Ahoy!", 105, 90, 90, 20)
$M2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 5, 120, 190, 60)
$BUTTON = GUICtrlCreateButton("REPLACE", 50, 190, 100, 20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $GUI)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "A_WM_COMMAND")
$ChangeMade = False
While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = $BUTTON Then
        $REPLACE = StringReplace(GUICtrlRead($M1), GUICtrlRead($W1), GUICtrlRead($W2))
        GUICtrlSetData($M2, $REPLACE)
    ElseIf $MSG = -3 Then
        Exit
    EndIf
    Sleep(15)
    If $ChangeMade Then
        ConsoleWrite($ChangeMade & @CRLF)
        $ChangeMade = False
        $text = GUICtrlRead($M1)
        $replacements = 0
        $text = StringReplace($text, "Hey,", "Hi,")
        $replacements += @extended
        $text = StringReplace($text, "you ", "yi ")
        $replacements += @extended
        If $replacements > 0 Then GUICtrlSetData($M1, $text)
        
    EndIf
    
WEnd


Func A_WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $imsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    Local $setHK = False
    $nNotifyCode = BitShift($iwParam, 16)
    $nID = BitAND($iwParam, 0x0000FFFF)
    $hCtrl = $ilParam
    
    If $nNotifyCode = $EN_CHANGE Then
        If GUICtrlGetHandle($M1) = $ilParam Then
            $ChangeMade = True;
        EndIf
    EndIf

I think he didnt mean that... I believe he meant to change the text u wrote... for example u are chatting on msn, u write Hi and the program should replace it with something else ( not change after u sent the message )

Maybe I have misunderstood something but my script does change it as you type. If you type Hey, it gets changed to Hi, It doesn't change what is placed there to start with untill some text is typed because the way I did it means that the replacements are only made when something changes.
