I know I must be missing something simple, but how do I get the variable QuoteText to showup in the function's message box?

gui, Add, Text, x16 y13 w190 h220 vQuoteText +Smooth +VScroll +BackgroundTrans +BS_MULTILINE ,
gui, show, x100 y100 w220 h250
GuiControl, , QuoteText, "Happy Days are likely Ahead"
Return

ShowStuff(num1, num2)
{
global
msgbox, %num1% and %num2%
msgbox, %QuoteText%
}
return

F1::
Showstuff(4, 5)
return

Why doesn't this work?

For one thing you didn't submit the GUI:

Gui, Add, Text, x16 y13 w190 h220 vQuoteText +Smooth +VScroll +BackgroundTrans +BS_MULTILINE , 
Gui, show, x100 y100 w220 h250 
GuiControl, , QuoteText, "Happy Days are likely Ahead" 
Return 

ShowStuff(num1, num2) 
{ 
global 
msgbox, %num1% and %num2% 
msgbox, %QuoteText% 
} 
return 

F1:: 
[color=red]Gui, Submit[/color]
Showstuff(4, 5) 
return

It still doesn't seem to work, but thank you for pointing out one of the problems in the script.

EDIT: Nevermind, sinkfaze's following post provides the solution.

My apologies, to get the text of a Text control you must use GuiControlGet:

If the target control has an associated variable, specify the variable's name as the ControlID (this method takes precedence over the ones described next). For this reason, it is usually best to assign a variable to any control that will later be accessed via GuiControl or GuiControlGet, even if that control is not input-capable (such as GroupBox or Text).


Gui, Add, Text, x16 y13 w190 h220 vQuoteText +Smooth +VScroll +BackgroundTrans +BS_MULTILINE , 
Gui, show, x100 y100 w220 h250 
GuiControl, , QuoteText, "Happy Days are likely Ahead" 
Return 

ShowStuff(num1, num2) 
{ 
global 
msgbox, %num1% and %num2% 
msgbox, %QuoteText% 
} 
return 

F1::
Gui, Submit
[color=red]GuiControlGet, QuoteText, , QuoteText, Text[/color] 
Showstuff(4, 5) 
return
