Multiple Styles

Recommended Posts



How can I add multiple styles to an Input in a GUI. I want to add:



- And ( if this is possible ) an option that centers the text.

- And ( if this is possible ) an option to have a maximum of four digits.


$PINInput1 = GUICtrlCreateInput ( "", 11, 112, 90, 22 )

To add multiple styles, use BitOr(style1, style2, etc) in the style parameter. But be careful - if you use the style parameter, you can overwrite the default styles that AutoIt uses and therefore might have to add them back in if you need them.

For example, a default Input has (from the Help file): "default ( -1) : $ES_LEFT, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL forced styles : $WS_TABSTOP only if no $ES_READONLY. $ES_MULTILINE is always reset". If you just wanted to add the $ES_PASSWORD style you would need to code BitOr($ES_LEFT, $ES_AUTOHSCROLL, $ES_PASSWORD) to retain the default styles.

But you do not want $ES_LEFT (you want centred) or $ES_AUTOSCROLL (only 4 characters), so you would only need to code: BitOr($ES_CENTER, $ES_PASSWORD).

As for the character limit, look at GUICtrlSetLimit.
