#1248 closed Bug (Fixed)

_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText fails on certain control IDs. Very odd...

Reported by: Rob Saunders <therks@…> Owned by: Valik
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


Long story short: I have a GUI with several controls on it, one of which is an edit which has data intermittently written to it via _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText. After updating to it seemed to stop receiving data and while debugging I discovered that it worked after adding or removing any control created before it, thus changing it's ID from 40. After a bit of testing it seems that it fails on several control IDs, and it appears the bug was introduced with version
Testing IDs from 3 to 100 I found the following IDs failed to receive data: 20, 22, 24, 26, 40, 56, 60, 66, 68, 80, 84, 96, 98. And on a special note, ID 64 seemed to lock up AutoIt completely (during a DllCall to SendMessage as near as I can tell).

Here's the script I used to test:

#include <GUIEdit.au3>

Opt('TrayIconDebug', 1)

Func Test($Num)
	GUICreate('', 200, 200)

	For $i = 1 to $Num

	$Edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit('', 0, 0)

	_GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($Edit, 'Success')
	If GUICtrlRead($Edit) = 'Success' Then
		ConsoleWrite($Edit & ': Success.' & @CRLF)
		ConsoleWrite($Edit & ': Failed.' & @CRLF)


Global $Skip
$Skip = True ; Comment out to test ID 64 as well.

For $i = 0 to 97
	If $Skip And $i = 61 Then
		ConsoleWrite('64: Skipping due to lockup.' & @CRLF)

Oh, I feel I should mention that the UDFs were all from when I tested. And also, _DebugBugReportEnv() returns the following:

AutoIt: (Os:WIN_XP/X86/Service Pack 2 Language:0409 Keyboard:00000409 Cpu:X86)

Lastly, I just tested with the new beta ( and got some new control IDs, so I went back and checked again with the previous versions and got the same, so I'm not sure if I messed up my first test somehow but either way the control IDs that fail for me now are: 20, 22, 24, 26, 46, 56, 60, 62, 66, 68, 80, 84, 96, 98, 100.
Hopefully I'm not being too verbose, if I am just let me know and I'll shut up.
