Hey everyone!

Is there any way of having autoit read single lines (ie carriage return separated strings) from an edit box?

Thanks!

Hey everyone!

Is there any way of having autoit read single lines (ie carriage return separated strings) from an edit box?

Thanks!

Example:

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 300, 200)

$cEdit = GUICtrlCreateEdit("Line 1" & @CRLF, 10, 10, 280, 140)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Line 2" & @CRLF & _
               "Line 2" & @CRLF, 1)

$cButton_Get = GUICtrlCreateButton("Get", 11, 166, 75, 23)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $cButton_Get
            $sText = _GUICtrlEdit_GetLineEx($cEdit)
            MsgBox(0, "Result", $sText)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _GUICtrlEdit_GetLineEx($cControl)
    Local $aSel, $iLine
    
    $aSel = _GUICtrlEdit_GetSel($cControl)
    
    If $aSel[0] <> -1 Then
        $iLine = _GUICtrlEdit_LineFromChar($cControl, $aSel[0])
        Return _GUICtrlEdit_GetLine($cControl, $iLine)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Edit:

Said example returns the line of a string from current carret position. For returns any necessary line use the _GUICtrlEdit_GetLine function.

Hi Rasim!

Thanks for pointing out the _GUICtrlEdit_GetLine function. I think that works exactly like a file read line function when put into a loop? What I want my GUI to do is to read a single line from the edit box, apply a transformation, output to text file, and repeat for every single line of code. I got stuck on the 'read a single line". :)

Thanks again!
