Editable inputbox containing values of a previous inputbox

5 posts in this topic

Howdy,

I've been a longtime lurker as well as a learner from these forums -- thank you for all your helpful contributions and insights. =) Anyway, the time has come where I am stumped by an issue and have been forced to register in order to post a question; I am sure the answer is quite simple, but I haven't been able to find the answer in my searches of the forum.

I am trying to automatically populate an inputbox ($Input2) with the data from the previous inputbox ($Input1), yet I would still like it to be able to manually edit the data ($Input2).

With the code I have, $Input2 is always the same as $Input1; I understand why, but I don't understand how to modify this behavior. I'm thinking I need some If/Then statements, but not sure how/where they need to be placed.

Hope someone can give me a hand with this... Thank you in advance.

Here is the code:

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Display1 = ""
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 250, 200, @DesktopWidth/2-250/2, @DesktopHeight/2-200/2)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 15, 18, 220, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 15, 50, 220, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Field Values",15,150,220,21)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()

    Switch $nMsg

        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        
        Case $Button1
            MsgBox(0,"Field Values","Input 1: " & GUICtrlRead($Input1) & @CRLF & "Input 2: " & GUICtrlRead($Input2))

        Case GUICtrlRead($Input1) <> $Display1
            $Display1 = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
            GUICtrlSetData($Input2,$Display1)
        
    EndSwitch
WEnd

TheSovereign,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums, Your Majesty....(bowing and scraping furiously) :-)

Your humble servitor begs leave to inform you that you were very nearly there:

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Display1 = ""
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 250, 200, @DesktopWidth/2-250/2, @DesktopHeight/2-200/2)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 15, 18, 220, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 15, 50, 220, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Field Values",15,150,220,21)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
      Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                  Exit
            Case $Button1
                  MsgBox(0,"Field Values","Input 1: " & GUICtrlRead($Input1) & @CRLF & "Input 2: " & GUICtrlRead($Input2))
      EndSwitch

      If GUICtrlRead($Input1) <> $Display1 Then
            $Display1 = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
            GUICtrlSetData($Input2,$Display1)
      Endif
WEnd

I have the honour to remain Your Majesty's most obedient servant. :-D

nanyi0509, that code does not work for me, I am unable to edit the data for $Input2...

BTW, M23's code works perfectly.
