GUICtrlCreateInput - How do I create my own style?

9 posts in this topic

If I use the following code it will create an input that will allow only "numbers".

Is it possible to create my own style that would allow numbers & ".-"?

I will be using it for Currency - example(3.50,-100.00)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#include <EditConstants.au3>

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Frm = GUICreate("Test Form",200,100,500,500)

$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("123",10,10,70,18,$ES_NUMBER)

GUISetState()

While 1

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)

Select

Case $nMsg[0] = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

If $nMsg[1] = $Frm Then

Exit

EndIf

EndSelect

Sleep(50)

WEnd

just test to see if the input is a number...

Cold Coded:

Case $Input
            If IsNumber(GUICtrlRead($Input)) = False Then
                MsgBox(.... Error
                GUICtrlRead($Input) = 0
            EndIf

KenNichols,

Have a look at this post - a "A-Bunch-of-Us-Guys-as-a-Team" came up with it a while ago. ;-)

Thanks, I think I can make this work!

; Restricted keys in an input '[\\/ :* ?"<>\|,!@#$%^&*()~`=+"abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ]'

; Author A-Bunch-of-Us-Guys-as-a-Team ...lol

GUICreate("Input Filter", 300, 30, -1, -1)

Global $inTest = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 5, 290)

GUIRegisterMsg(0x0111, "_WM_COMMAND")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While GUIGetMsg() <> -3

WEnd

GUIRegisterMsg(0x0111, "")

Func _WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg)

GUICtrlSetData($inTest, StringRegExpReplace(GUICtrlRead($inTest), '[\\/ :* ?"<>\|,!@#$%^&*()~`=+"abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ]', ""))

EndFunc ;==>_WM_COMMAND

KenNichols,

You might find it a bit easier to use this code:

GUICtrlSetData($inTest, StringRegExpReplace(GUICtrlRead($inTest), '[^0-9.-]', ""))

The caret inverts the selection - i.e. permits rather than excludes.

If you wait for a RegExp guru, they will probably be able to limit the minus sign to the first character and permit only one decimal point, but I am afraid that is beyond me (but not others - see below!)

M23

P.S. It is much easier for other forum users if you use Code tags. Put [code ] before and [/code ] after your posted code (but omit the trailing space - it is only there so the tags display here).

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Edit:

A bit more searching and I found some other code (credit to rover and MrCreatoR here) which let me develop this code to go in the WM_COMMAND function:

Local $Read_Input = GUICtrlRead($inTest)
    If StringRegExp($Read_Input, '[^\A-{1}][^0-9.]') Then $Read_Input = StringRegExpReplace($Read_Input, '[^\d.-]|([{0-9,1}^\A-])[^\d.]', '\1')
    Local $Point = StringInStr($Read_Input, ".", 0, 2)
    If $Point > 0 Then $Read_Input = StringLeft($Read_Input, $Point - 1)
    GUICtrlSetData($inTest, $Read_Input)

This should now limit the input to a leading minus (if needed) and only 1 decimal point - I hope it does what you want.

That is almost perfect!

I found that same post and I was looking at http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/pcrepattern.html#SEC9

I am having trouble limiting it to 2 digits after the "."

KenNichols,

Do you want fries with that? :-)

Try this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Input Filter", 300, 30, -1, -1)
Global $inTest = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 5, 5, 290)
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "MY_WM_COMMAND")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
WEnd

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "")

Func MY_WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)

    Local $iIDFrom = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF);LoWord
    Local $iCode = BitShift($wParam, 16)    ;HiWord

    If $iIDFrom = $inTest And $iCode = $EN_CHANGE Then

    $Read_Input = GUICtrlRead($inTest)
    If StringRegExp($Read_Input, '[^\A-{1}][^0-9.]') Then $Read_Input = StringRegExpReplace($Read_Input, '[^\d.-]|([{0-9,1}^\A-])[^\d.]', '\1')
    $Point1 = StringInStr($Read_Input, ".", 0)
    $Point2 = StringInStr($Read_Input, ".", 0, 2)
    If $Point2 <> 0 Then $Read_Input = StringLeft($Read_Input, $Point2 - 1)
    If $Point1 <> 0 Then $Read_Input = StringLeft($Read_Input, $Point1 + 2)
    GUICtrlSetData($inTest, $Read_Input)

    EndIf

EndFunc;==>_WM_COMMAND

I have also taken the opportunity to add in a bit more checking within the function so it only activates when the particular input is changed.

Thanks

I had to change this line. It was allowing me to enter letters if no numbers were added first.

If StringRegExp($Read_Input, '[^\d.-]|([{0-9,1}^\A-])[^\d.]') Then $Read_Input = StringRegExpReplace($Read_Input, '[^\d.-]|([{0-9,1}^\A-])[^\d.]', '\1')

KenNichols,

Glad we got it working - and I learnt a lot as well. :-)
