I think that ES_MULTILINE should not appear in Object Inspector because an InputBox is by definition single-line.

ES_WANTRETURN is irrelevant to Input box because InputBox is single-line, so I think that it should not appear in Object Inspector. Same for ES_AUTOVSCROLL and WS_VSCROLL.

In C/C++, WS_GROUP is the way of marking a control as the first in a group, and another control as the last in the group. But AutoIt uses, and Koda generates, a pair of calls to GUICtrlCreateGroup. So I suggest removing WS_GROUP from TAInput in Object Inspector. The fewer styles there are, the easier it is for a user: some scrolling down is inevitable, but the less he needs to do so the less likely he is to miss a style that he needs to check or uncheck.

Koda shows WS_VISIBLE as forced, but AutoIt doesn’t. Further, WS_VISIBLE remains checked even when Visible is False. I suggest removing WS_VISIBLE.

I think that WS_CHILD only applies to Forms. So I suggest removing it from Object Inspector | TAInput.

With WS_HSCROLL checked, when a Form is run, the scroll bar is drawn over the Text. Koda insists that the Height be 21. It needs to allow a larger height when WS_HSCROLL is checked.

This task depends upon

GUI_DROPACCEPTED is missing from InputBox | Styles.
