Basically that's a pseudo-terminal I'll be using for a fun script I'm making. If you enter so much that the edit has to scroll, it doesn't scroll down along with the text, which is very annoying. I kinda fixed the problem, but it's still annoying :lmao:

An alternative to using the not-visible default button would be to set a hotkey:

Put HotKeyStatus() inside the While loop, and add the following to the bottom of your code.

Func HotKeyStatus()
    If WinActive("The Angry Donkey - Eric Carmichael") Then
        HotKeySet("{Enter}", "Enter");register hotkey
    Else
        HotKeySet("{Enter}");un-register hotkey
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func Enter()
    $strInput = GUICtrlRead ( $inputInput )
    If $strInput <> "" Then
        GuiCtrlSetData( $inputInput, "")
        GuiCtrlSetData ( $editOutput, $strInput & @CRLF, "AppendTextDarnIt" )
        ControlSend ( "The Angry Donkey - Eric Carmichael", "", $editOutput, "{DOWN}")
        GUICtrlSetState ( $inputInput, $GUI_FOCUS )
    EndIf
EndFunc

Also once you send so much information, page down stops going to the end of the edit...

Once again, you bring the suga' to AutoIT CyberSlug :lmao:
