Input box not quitting

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Only just heard of Autoit and think its marvellous. I am not good at coding, but had success in writing some executables. However below is a piece of a code I find I am having problems.

1) In the below example, how can I have bullets instead of asterisk when entering password? Bullets look better.

2) In the line "$Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("0", 10, 20, 150, 20, $ES_NUMBER)" how can you restrict the input numbers to 12. I don't want people to enter more than 12 digits.

3) When you run the below script and enter password 'test', you will be given three buttons to choose from. When you select the Test button and choose YES in the dialog box that popsup, it popsup another dialog box asking for user input. This is where I have the problem. I can input data into this box, but the OK and Cancel or cross mark don't work. The only way to force this dialogbox to quit is via the system tray and rightclicking to EXIT. Please assist...

CODE

$bLoop = 1

While $bLoop = 1

$passwd = InputBox("test", " Please enter password:", "", "*")

If @error = 1 Then

Exit

Else

If $passwd <> "test" Then

MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Wrong Password!")

Else

$bLoop = 0

EndIf

EndIf

WEnd

Hi,

For question 1.

Here is the answer.

$passwd = InputBox("test", " Please enter password:", "", chr(149))

Andre


What about Windows without using AutoIt ?It would be the same as driving a car without an steering Wheel!

Thank you Andre, that worked beautifully... Now waiting for the answers to my second and third question.

for question two,

GUICtrlSetLimit($Input_1, 12)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Or back to InputBox:

$passwd = InputBox("test", " Please enter password:", "", chr(149) & "M12")

The "M12" at the end of the password character field tell InputBox that input is Manditory and limit input to 12 characters.

Edit: Fix speeling errors.

Nutster and Layer, thank you so much for your suggestions. For now I have used Layer's suggestion in my code and it works fine. I also tried Nutster's suggestion as I needed it in other scripts and that too works fine.

Now that the cosmetic changes are out of the way (question 1 and 2), I am hoping for an an answer to my third and most important question as my script is not completely functional. When you copy the part of the offending code to another script as a standalone it works fine (see the code below). It does exactly what its supposed to do and quits correctly too.

However when this code is copied to the overallcode (see the firstpartof this thread), it doesn't do what its supposed to do. The input box doesn't submit to OK or Cancel. Please help. The offending code that works as a standalone is as below:

CODE:

If FileExists("C:\test\test.txt") Then

$file = FileOpen("C:\test\test.txt", 0)

$line = FileReadLine($file ,2)

$answer = MsgBox(4, "test:", "File found, do you want to edit this?")

Else

$answer = MsgBox(4, "test:", "File not found do you wish to continue?")

EndIf

If $answer = 7 Then

Exit

EndIf

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

If Not IsDeclared('WS_CLIPSIBLINGS') Then Global $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS = 0x04000000

GuiCreate("test", 171, 85, (@DesktopWidth-171)/2, (@DesktopHeight-85)/2 , $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_VISIBLE + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)

$Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("0", 10, 20, 150, 20, $ES_NUMBER)

GUICtrlSetLimit($Input_1, 12)

GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)

$ok = GuiCtrlCreateButton("OK", 10, 54, 70, 20)

$cancel = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 90, 54, 70, 20)

GuiSetState()

While 1

$msg = GuiGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Exit

Case $msg = $cancel

Exit

Case $msg = $ok

msgbox(0, "test", "Data changed to:" & @CRLF & GuiCtrlRead($Input_1))

ExitLoop

Case Else

EndSelect

WEnd

If FileExists("C:\test\test.txt") Then

Else

DirCreate("C:\test")

EndIf

$file = FileOpen("C:\test\test.txt", 2)

If $file = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file")

Exit

EndIf

FileWriteLine($file, "Data=" & GuiCtrlRead($Input_1))
