How does Koda track script for update?

Recommended Posts

jayterry

I first posted this question in General Support forum, but no answer and I'm thinking this is the more appropriate place anyway.

What I'm trying to find out is about the feature in Koda that identifies the source file for a form, the feature that enables the Update Script function and puts the indicator on the form icon. I don't think that the "Form=..." on the #Region statement is what does it. So it seems Koda has to store that script name somewhere. I've created a form for testing and for the life of me I can't find where in the world it stores the associated script name. I can't find it in the .kxf or fd.xml or styles.xml or the registry or any indicator in the source file (the .au3 that Koda generated). I even looked to see if maybe it was in an alternate stream in the .kxf file.

After continuing to search the form, I found some mention of Koda actually reading thru all the scripts to find the one associated with the open form. Can that be the answer? When you open a form, does it search all scripts in the current working directory to see if one has a Koda region statement with that form name in it? Is that what turns on the Update Script function?

Any explanation or clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Yes.

There is a separate section for Koda so that is obviously a better placve to post questions about it.

Thank you very much. It was really bugging me to not know how Koda was managing to link the form to the script. I kept thinking it just HAD to be stored somewhere, but apparently not.

You mentioned a "separate section for Koda". Do you just mean this forum for "GUI Help and Support", or is there somewhere else I didn't notice?

Thanks

could you please post a link to the other topic (if it exists) or delete this thread to prevent google finding it and confusing people? Thanks

Look at the top of this forum for the thread for Koda.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
