Velnes,

Do you have a .au3 file open in SciTE? The "special" LUA code only works if you do. :)

There is no special LUA code for F1 but there is a special program that will properly open the Helpfile on the correct keyword:

command.help.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\Autoit3Help.exe "$(CurrentWord)"
command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=2

I actually asked on how you installed AutoIt3, not SciTE4AutoIT3 :)

You have the following files in directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\" :

AutoIt3Help.exe

AutoIt.chm

AutoIt3.chm

UDFs3.chm

If so what happens when you open the AutoIt.chm file?

So how did you install AutoIt3?

Check au3.properties to make sure the lines are in there that I posted before.

No I mean au3.properties which you can find in the SciTE OPTIONS menu dropdown.

My guess is that it is empty.

hi,

So what was the answer here ??

Just installed AI on another comp (XPSP2) and iv got the same problem :unsure:

looked at the au3.properties and iv got the following :-

autoit3dir=C:\Program Files\AutoIt3

openpath.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\include

openpath.beta.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\beta\include

# 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

pressing ctrl+f1 loads the autoit.chm file fine but no AI3 help at all even if i use the pull down menu ? The help file is in the right place and works fine if i load it manually.

this installation of AI is brand new also windows is a newly installed also. I installed AI with the same file i used on my other comps & they work fine.

please give me a hand here, many thx.


Thx all,Jack Dinn.

So you have a file open with an ".au3" extension?

You autoit3 directory is the standard: C:\Program Files\AutoIt3 ?

Also make sure you have the full Scite4Autoit3 installed and not just the version that installs with AutoIt. You will find things much simpler.
