GUICtrlCreateInput onevent= enter

6 posts in this topic

I have a gui input box for password and wanted to see if the user can just press enter rather than clicking a button

I know on InputBox the user can enter text and press enter continue to the next step.

Is it possible to do the same when using the GUICtrlCreateInput?

Here's partial code:

;password

GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Enter your directory password (optional):", 10, 55, 325, 20)

$MyPassword = GUICtrlCreateInput("",10, 75, 350, 20, 0x00020) ;the 0x00020 creates the '*' while typing

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_FOCUS) ;set button to default so user can just hit enter to accept defaults

If $msg = $Save Then

$MyPassword = GUICtrlRead($MyPassword)

endif

Currently the user must click on the Save button.

Is there a way for the user to enter the password and press the enter key?

Thanks.

DNB

Just pressing Enter when the input has focus will cause an event from the input, so this example might be what you need.

GUICreate("input with Enter")
$ip1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 30, 40, 120, 22)
GUISetState()
While 1
   $msg = GUIGetMsg()
   Switch $msg
      Case - 3
         Exit
      Case $ip1
         MsgBox(262144, "ip1", "enter pressed")
   EndSwitch
   
WEnd

Thank you. Sometimes it takes a second pair of eyes. --DNB

In fact ENter will only trigger an event when there has been some change to the input. If you just click in the input and press Enter you probably won't trigger an event. Here is one way round that

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <windowsconstants.au3>


$Gui = GUICreate("Edit Append Text", 400, 300)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("This is a test", 2, 2, 394, 26)
$Ip2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("another one", 2, 35, 394, 26)
$Dum = GUICtrlCreateDummy()
Dim $accels[1][2] = [["{ENTER}", $Dum]]
GUISetAccelerators($accels)

GUISetState()
; GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "DB_WM_COMMAND");only used for EN_CHANGE so far

GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "Append to the end?")

; Loop until user exits
While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Input1
            ConsoleWrite("edited" & @CRLF)
        Case $Dum
            If ControlGetFocus($Gui) = "Edit1" Then ConsoleWrite("Enter pressed in Edit1" & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

I wondered why they had that dummy control. Good to see how to use it. :)
