AutoIT3 Help in SciTE

Recommended Posts

SuperChief

Had do drop back to AutoIT3 v3.2.12.1 for NT4 compatibility. Running SciTE v1.79, I can no longer get the automatic response from the AutoIT3 Help file. (placing the cursor to the left of a key word and pressing F1) This is a feature that I REALLY use a lot and I was wondering if anyone knows what I need to do to fix the issue?

Thanks for your time.

What happens when you press F1?

You have a file open at the time that is saved with a .au3 extension?

The script file has been named and saved with a .au3 extension. When I press "F1" for AutoIT Help, nothing happens. There is no response.

what does your sciteglobal.properties and au3.properties look like?

Here's a section of au3.properties:

# Commands to for Help F1

command.help.$(au3)=$(CurrentWord)!$(autoit3dir)\autoit.chm

command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=4

#~command.help.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\Autoit3Help.exe "$(CurrentWord)"

#~command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=2

I commented out command.help.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\Autoit3Help.exe "$(CurrentWord)"

and command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=2.

Then removed the comment (#) from command.help.$(au3)=$(CurrentWord)!$(autoit3dir)\autoit.chm

and command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=4.

Now the "Help" function works as expected.

Thanks for your assistance!
