The help file would be a good place to start:

GuiCtrlSetData($editbox, FileRead("path\to\file")) #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites The help file would be a good place to start: GuiCtrlSetData($editbox, FileRead("path\to\file"))
Thanksfor the fast reply it seams to only work if I input the path seems I can't preload the file and use the variable from FileOpen.

thats why the help files confused me

back to another question regarding this. I am now trying to get the file to display with menuitem and fileopen and I can't get it to display when I use the variable \$file. I have tried everything in the help and i can only see the leters flash in the edit box before disapearing.
