# SciTE problems - not sure if I have something setup wrong or not

## 9 posts in this topic

The problem I'm having is that when I try to use the Ctrl J command (Jump to Func), I get a message in the console windows that says: 'Unable to find function definition: functionname'.

This only occurrs when I'm trying to jump to a function located in an UDF stored in my additional UDFs folder located at 'C:\AutoIt3AddedIncludes'. In all other cases, it works just fine. If I try to jump to a function contained within the script that I'm working on it goes right to the function. If I try to jump to a function that is in one of the standard includes located in the directory 'AutoIt3/Include' the include is opened up and I'm taken to the function.

I've setup the CallTips for the UDFs/Functions in my 'C:\AutoIt3AddedIncludes' directory and that feature is working great. The tip is available and AutoComplete will complete inserting the function name into my script.

Another part of what I believe to be the same problem is the ability to open the include using the Alt I command. As long as the include is located in the standard Include folder it can be opened but includes located in the user-defined folder all refuse to be opened and the same error as indicated above will be printed into the console window.

I'm sure that I've over-looked some setup step to getting this to work correctly but have failed to find the problem yet. Could someone give me a hand in getting this straightened out?

I looked at the LUA code in the SciTE files and didn't see where reference to the user defined directories is made. However, since the CallTips are working and my scripts that use functions located in 'C:\AutoIt3AddedIncludes' all work fine, SciTE must be aware of the location as provided in the registry key.

Thanks

The CTRL-J tool doesn't work if the function is located in a file that's in a folder other than the standard Include folder.

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.

Thanks BrewManNH. Not the answer I was hoping to get but at least now I know that it didn't break because of something I did when setting up the CallTips. Guess I should have just left all my added UDFs in the AutoIt3/Include folder.

Thanks

Are you sure or just guessing? Edited by Jos

A little more searching to find out where the SciteUser.properties file was located, and then some experimenting to figure out exactly what to add. AND Great, now it works.

Thanks again, Jos.

Here's what I finally had to add to get mine to work for me:

openpath.$(au3)=C:\AutoIt3AddedIncludes;C:\AutoIt3AddedIncludes openpath.beta.$(au3)=C:\AutoIt3AddedIncludes\beta

Why search? It's right there in SciTE, Options > Open User Options File.

I tried adding the user includes folder that I have into this section of the AutoItGotoDefinition.lua file

function AutoItGotoDefinition:onstartup()

-- This variable defines the name of a property which contains a semi-colon

-- delimited list of directories where #include files can be found. For

-- best results, user-defined paths should appear first and the Standard

-- Library path should be last. Customize this variable to be the name

-- of the property exactly how it appears in the properties file.

self.DirProp = "openpath.\$(au3)"

Because I assumed that's where it was supposed to go by the description given in the header information, and it didn't work, I further assumed that it wouldn't work for user includes not in the include folder.
