Will you beta test my current script, please?

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 appreciate that you've taken the time to help me bug test. :) The latest version should correct the incorrect console background color. And I'll be looking into the Tools error now.

Nice little program, but I have noticed a few english errors (Such as a button spelt hilite rather than highlight in the general tab). Also, I have found that it doesnt actually work for me :)

Before you get worried, the reason is that the scite I tested it on was running off my thumbdrive - there is no autoit installation on the computer I am currently using. Therefore, I think that it might be a good idea to have an option for the user to change the directory that it checks for the scite settings in if they are not found by the program, and also have an optional override if they want to use it on a computer (such as my own one, not the one I am using now) where there is a local installation and one on another drive.

Well, thats about it for my criticism for now. Other than that, it is quite well laid out - not horribly cluttered or anything like that. If this were to become a finished project, I would definately use it.

Hope this has helped, and given you a good idea for the program.

Mike, there is an executable on the SciTE download page with this description, "A single file executable called Sc1 (640K) does not need any DLL or properties files as these are linked into the executable. You may still create properties files if you wish. Sc1.exe has been compressed with the UPX compressor so that it is a fast download. It does not need to be decompressed to be used." Is that the one that you're using?

If we're talking anal here ...

In relation to the "User Include Folders" setting, adding some additional support for handling the possible multiple paths here might be a idea.

I think I have what you wanted. Just click 'Select'. Select one directory. Rinse and repeat until you've selected all of your directories.

Yep, that will do it. :)

I dont know, I got it off my brother and he doesnt remember :)

But if you like, I can rar it for you and send it off to you if you like. It is the full AutoIT installation though so I will just send you Scite and you should have the rest.

Sorry, I havent checked back here in a while. I'll just send Scite and a little readme saying how to set it all up then.

Scratch that, I'll just send the entire installation with maximum file compression in a rar file. I hope you have winrar.

Loads of settings, wow!! ;) One thing , I am not a fan of guis with scrollbars on them. I minimized the window & when I restored it, the scrollbar was off :D (probably not your problem) :) I would put some of the settings -- font, fold margin, caret -- on a page called "Appearence" or something like that. Also, it is really slow when changing tabs. Love the customizability it would (does?) give. :)

I have brought out the Explorer, Directory, and General Settings into another tab. I also added the Debug Trace settings too. So it's a lot less cluttered. Scroll bars are kinda needed because I want to keep the height of the window at 600. This keeps it from being too large for those who have notebooks. I noticed the minimize and refreshing problem and was thinking on it when I saw your post. =D Thanks for your reply.

When you say slow changing tabs, how slow?

Takes ~1.5s to change between General/Theme/Tidy settings tabs. I figure it's probably because of all the controls on each tab & so splitting out some controls onto different tabs would make a difference.

Edit: It's also the same way for the default SciTe customizer - switching to/from the Theme tab takes a bit.

OK, latest update sees some fairly dramatic GUI restructuring. Also, this should play nice with portable versions of AutoIt and Scite4AutoIt3. Please bug report if it does not play nice. Don't put this in the top level directory of your thumb drive though. See original post for download.

Just in case (seems somewhat similar to other reported case).

GUI Minimize and Restore issue. (Running:(3.3.7.23), Win-XP)

If you scroll down, than, after a Minimize+Restore, the whole section is displayed in the wrong position. (Tabs placed at top of visible window again, instead of the top of the scrollable area. (easy to work around / beta.)

Screeny (temp)

      [GUI] Drag&Drop files -> Get filename
      By FrankSchneidewind
      Hi all,
      I got a quick question regarding Drag&Drop with GUIs. I made a little script that does something with files and I need a way to get the name/path of the file when I drag&drop it into the GUI. Is there a quick way to do this?

      Tyvm in advance!

      Metro style combo
      By Wingens
      Hi all,
      I created a little script we use at work for inputing date and time stamps into our ticket system.
      Now I thought it would look nice in a Metro style GUI, I found an UDF on the forum what does almost everything I want.
      I have but one thing I can't seem to find and don't have the skills to create.
      The gui uses one pulldown menu (GUICtrlCreateCombo) it stays in the older looking style.
      I attached the script and files I have, also in the zip you find an example of what I am looking for.
       
      Hope you guys can help me

      GuiBuilderNxt - Reboot [08/18/2016]
      By jaberwacky
      This is an update to GuiBuilder (CyberSlug, Roy, TheSaint, and many others) to run on the latest AutoIt Beta release.
       
      For a chronological history of GuiBuilder and other GUI designers see: >AutoIt GUI Creators (Designers).
      The seed of this effort is >here.
      Note: This is early stage software.  Please help by reporting issues.
      -----------------------------------------------------
      Now for the latest exciting installment!  Tabs are now available!  One tab can be added to the GUI.  Move it, resize it, and right click to add a new tab item!  More context menu items on the way.  Also upcoming is the ability to be able to add controls to each tab item.
      ---------------------------------------------------------
      GUIBuilderNxt - Reboot.zip - Exe included.
      dl: 4286
      Changelog:
      New Features and fixes:
      1) Show or hide control while moving or resizing control. *Currently bugged out*
      2) Option to show controls which have had their state set to hidden.
      3) Properties window for each control as they are selected.  This makes fine tuning a control easier.
      4) A button which will resize a control's width to fit the text.  Uses Melba23's _StringSize library.
      5) Remembers settings from the last session.
      6) GuiOnEvent mode.  CyberSlug made mention of wanting to do this in the early days of GuiBuilder.
      7) Maps rather than multidimensional arrays.
      8) Consistent control naming, (i.e., instead of Group1, Button2, Button3, Radio4 it would now be Group1, Button1, Button2, Radio1).
      9) Restructured the menubar layout per GuiBuilder Resurrected.
      10) Hotkeys switched to accelerators.
      11) Option to wipe the gui clear to the Edit menu.
      12) Select and move multiple controls at once by holding down Ctrl or using a selection rectangle.
      13) Copy, Paste and Delete multiple controls at once.
      14) Solid grid background that now resizes to fit the GUI.
       
      Roadmap:
      1) Get the Tab control to work correctly. *Still in progress*
      2) Finish adding properties settings to the control properties window.
      3) Make the code generation produce code with a better layout.
      4) Common GUI templates.  Ability to make your own templates too.
      5) Select multiple controls and use arrow keys (or other method?) to snap the selected controls to align to the chosen edge.
      6) Visual hints to tell you when you're within so many pixels from the edge of the window or control.  Mimics the gui designer of Visual Basic.
      7) Double click a control to edit the text.
      8) Visual hints to indicate selected controls, etc.
      9) Ability to create and store custom controls.

      Winmove GUI moves buttons
      By FMS
      Hello,
      Below is a code whish i made for this problem i've. (code 1)
      The problem is that iff i try Winmove to to show the hidden button it's not working as i tought.
      What i try to do is just simple expand the GUI to make the hidden button visible. (code 2)
      I've already looked into GUICoordMode but don't think that's the problem.(or I don't understand it properly)
      Also tried to look into the forum but din't find anything around this subject but could't find anything around this subject.
      Does somebody knows what I'm doing wrong?
       
      Code 1 (winmove prblem) :
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 134, 103, 192, 124) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25) $Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25) $expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25) $hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $expand_button WinMove($Form1, "From1", 192, 124, 300, 103) EndSwitch WEnd  
      Code 2 What I'm trying to expand to :
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 265, 114, 192, 124) $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("1", 8, 8, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("2", 8, 40, 75, 25) $Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("3", 8, 72, 75, 25) $expand_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("EXP", 96, 40, 27, 25) $hidden_button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hidden", 160, 40, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd
