I've already ages ago written a SplashText generator, but it uses AU3GUIXP - back in the days before AutoIt had built in GUI... It seriously needs a re-write now we have this... hmm...

ive been working on a "code" wizard type thing, but it's basically just like autoit, rebuilt... i just havent added every function in so far, well, because im really lazy and that would be a while... but it's nothin special, and i havent really been working on it the past few weeks :lmao: it's also a command prompt type thing.. example:

box msg hello world

would produce a msgbox with the title "Msg" and the text "Hello world" but i think this would be pretty useless.. unless you just didnt want to download the whole autoit package, and the name is BEA: Batch, Executable, Autoit. a combination of all three

Bug: Preview button won't work if user types multiple characters into the "Password Char" textbox.

Solution: Add the following around line 52 of InputBoxWizard.zu3

GuiCtrlSetLimit($txtPwdChr, 1, 0)

Keep up the great work!

EDIT: Some suggestions for MsgBoxWizard... See attached code :lmao:

1) "Cancel, Retry, Continue" should be "Cancel, Try Again, Continue" (at least on WinXP English)

2) You could show a preview of the MsgBox icon in the wizard itself...

3) You might want to generate code that uses Constants.au3: For example, Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = $IDYES instead of Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 ;Yes However, using contants for the MsgBox flag would require more effort than my simple StringReplace hack

MsgBoxWizard.au3

InputBoxWizard: Fixed the bug notified. Users can download the ver. 1.0.1 from my AutoIt public area.

MessageBoxWizard: I'll implement the script as suggested.

Many thanks to CyberSlug.

This is a problem, as the helpfile specifies number returns, not constants?

This causes confusion for beginners, let alone for advanced, who are accustomed to the rule of the helpfile. I use F1 (Helpfile) by default, rather then digging through the include folder for answers.

If no reference in the helpfile, then it should not be used.

MessageBoxWizard 1.2 released.

It includes CyberSlug suggestions and a bugfix.

Be carefully that, if you use the option "Use constants", there are no constants in Constants.au3 (Message Box Constants) for:

10 - TRY AGAIN

11 - CONTINUE

BTW, I agree with MHz about the helpfile: it should have a reference to the Constants.au3 file.

Maybe we could also use:

Global Const $IDTIMEOUT = -1 ; Message box timed out

There might be some others.... I need to also look at GuiConstants.au3

Hi Jeremy.

2 missing constants more in Constants.au3 for MessageBox:

262144 - top-most attribute set

524288 - title and text are right-justified

Moreover, consider the CyberSlug suggestion:

Global Const $IDTIMEOUT = -1 ; Message box timed out

If yow agree, please post the upgraded Constants.au3 file.

Thanks
