Needed a way to store global temporary & permanent information and came up with this.
This is inspired by NodeJS's store and store2 packages, as well as W3 specs' localStorage and sessionStorage, offering multiple ways of usage.
This is not related to any browser's storage, nor will allow you to access or modify browsers storage - although this is possible and not a hard task, this is not what this UDF is intended to do.
This UDF offers functions for temporary storage (that gets cleaned up once the application is shutdown) that is kept on memory using ScriptingDictionary, as well as for permanent storage, that is saved on the harddisk as an encrypted file.
sessionStorage (temporary storage)
It's useful to keep application state and temporary settings accessible by any part of your script (although it could also be done with a global variable, I still prefer this method).
You have multiple ways, at your choice, to:
; add or modify a key sessionStorage("foo", "bar") store("foo", "bar") sessionStorage_set("foo", "bar") sessionStorage_setItem("foo", "bar") ; read a key (returns false if key does not exist) $read = sessionStorage("foo") $read = store("foo") $read = sessionStorage_get("foo") $read = sessionStorage_getItem("foo") ; delete a key sessionStorage_remove("foo") ; delete all keys sessionStorage_clear() sessionStorage_clearAll() localStorage (permanent storage)
It's useful to store user-defined settings.
; initialize ; this is optional, but allows you to control ; how things are going to be saved localStorage_startup([file where you want the settings to be saved], [crypt password]) ; by default, if not supplied, if supplied the "Default" keyword (or if you dont initialize), ; the file will be a random-named file (based on @ScriptFullPath) at user's %APPDATA% ; and the password will also be based on @ScriptFullPath ; you can set only the crypt password if you want: ; localStorage_startup(Default, "mypassword") ; the usage is the same as sessionStorage ; add or modify a key localStorage("foo", "bar") store2("foo", "bar") ; notice the '2' localStorage_set("foo", "bar") localStorage_setItem("foo", "bar") ; read a key (returns false if key does not exist) $read = localStorage("foo") $read = store2("foo") $read = localStorage_get("foo") $read = localStorage_getItem("foo") ; delete a key localStorage_remove("foo") ; delete all keys localStorage_clear() localStorage_clearAll() Download
I have a situation where the desktop is designed in java swings. The nodes JTree is not allowing me to do checkbox selection using "spacebar". I am able to navigate through the nodes using up, down arrow and a tab. When I reach to the desire node selection, mouse left click is not working due a flaw a JTree core. However since it is selected, if mouse cursor auto moved to the position of the selection and send a "click" then it should be solved. Any ideas much appreciated.
the problem with having fixed coordinates are the main windows is divided to 2panels where right panel containing this JTree can be expanded or shrink-ed.
I have a question
about the display language of the system
How can I get the current display language and how can I change it by autoit
Of course, if this is possible
Greetings to all and hope you help me
Hello, I have a Logitech MX500 mouse, this has 7 buttons plus a wheel.
I am trying to figure out how to detect clicks on three of the buttons on this mouse but have been unable to do so. I am not running any Logitech software just the standard Windows 7 driver. The buttons are all working fine but when I try to figure out which button was clicked unable to detect three of the buttons.
Using this code snippet I am able to see all the button presses with the exception of these three marked by '?'.
Is there some alternate method for detecting button clicks? I have been searching for example but have yet to find anything.
#include <Misc.au3> Dim $a While 1 For $a = 1 To 100 If _IsPressed($a) Then ConsoleWrite("you pressed " & $a & @CRLF) Next WEnd
I was pondering over a question with regards to the speeds of reading something and did not see this kind of question in a forum search.
The question: What is (technically) faster? Multiple reads from the same 3d array cell, or only once make a 'temp' variable from that cell and read the value from this? I don't know if either has any real impact at all anyway, but just wanted to ask anyway. :-)
There may be a difference if the value holds an integer or a string (or something else) but in my case, is a simple integer.
To hopefully clarify with a small bit of code:
$process = $start - 15 If $xy[$process] <> "x" Then If _ArraySearch($open, $process, 1, $open, 0, 0, 1, 1) <> -1 Then UpdateOpen($xy[$process], $closed) ElseIf $start > 0 And _ArraySearch($closed, $process, 1, $closed, 0, 0, 1, 0) = -1 Then Add_open($start, $closed, $counter, $process) EndIf EndIf You can read from this, that the array $closed is being read 3 times. And this goes on further in the code I did not show.
My question boils down to this, should I make a 'temp' variable to hold that $closed value until the function is done?
It may not have a real impact on my small script, but I really am interested in the answer at least.
