How to assign handles

Recommended Posts


When using a function like vs.SetTextFont(objectHd, Start, Count, FontNum), I need an object handler (objectHd) that points to the textbox of which the function has to change the font.

my code:

h = vs.CreateText('Hello')
vs.SetTextFont(h, 0, vs.GetTextLength(h), vs.GetFontID('Arial'))

This gives the error: Handle to text object is not valid.

What am I doing wrong? :confused:

The output of createText is a Handle and the SetTextFont asks for a handler?

Thank you!

So actually, in this case, vs.CreateText() does NOT return a handle, it returns None.

Here's a script that should work for you instead.

h = vs.LNewObj()
vs.SetTextFont(h, 0, vs.GetTextLength(h), vs.GetFontID('Arial'))

Hope this helps!
