Here you go


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.

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)

      SciTe start new script (new doc)
      By Skysnake
      Hi all
      When I right-click and tell Windows to create a New > AutoIt v3 Script I get a filename like this New AutoIt v3 Script and a file that contains this:
      #cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: 3.3.14.2 Author: myName Script Function: Template AutoIt script. #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; Script Start - Add your code below here But, when I am inside SciTE v.3.6.2.0 and click File > New I just get a blank document.
      I do not think this is any kind of error.  Rather, where do I go to configure SciTe to insert that header?

      Identifying Button in Toolbar When There is no ControID
      By OldGuyWalking
      I want to click on a button that is inside a custom ToolBar on a nonAutoIT created form.  I've been using MouseClick but that fails if the toolbar is detached or if the form is resized.
      There is no ID associated with the toolbar but there is a handle.  I'm thinking that to get the handle I need a ControlID but that only gets me to the toolbar and I'd then need to have a way to identify the position of a button in order to click on it.  
      I'd found a discussion about identifying the position of a noname button by, I believe, it's Tip text back in December but I can't find it now.  Memory is a bit fuzzy on how I even got to the topic because at the time I was searching for something else.   I'll continue to search but if anyone has seen the topic, or knows of another solution could you please point me in that direction. 
      Thank you.

      Compiling scripts from console with AutoIt3Wrapper
      By LFCavalcanti
      Hi!
      Backstory to understand my need:
      I'm building something similar to what Chunk VNC was, using the Single Click function from UltraVNC to provide remote support.
      My "little monster" is actually working, but the "solution" will have 3 modules:
      SUPPORT: Users will open or install so IT Pros can access their system. VIEWER: IT Pros use to connect to User systems and perform their maintenance GENERATOR: The IT Pro uses to define the configuration for both the SUPPORT and VIEWER apps, like language files for text, SERVER address and ports, Company name, etc. I've attached a screenshot of the SUPPORT app that is done.
      Before anyone points the finger, no I'm not planning on just copying the AutoIt3 files to my project folder and distribute them, I intend to get the IT Pro who will use the GENERATOR to install SciTE and AutoIt3 then the GENERATOR will use them to compile the other two apps.
      The thing is, I need this to be simple, I thought about the GENERATOR having a single screen where the IT Pro can fill in all the information, select the language file and so on, then the GENERATOR compiles both "au3" sources for the SUPPORT and VIEWER.
      I'm using the ResourceEx UDF from Guiness and MetroUI UDF from BBs19. I even made some changes to the MEtroUI, that I shared here.
      This project will be uploaded to my Github account as soon I get this GENERATOR working, so people can actually use it.
      The problem:
      As explained, I need to compile the AU3 source files and perform an Resource Update. SciTE does that for me, right, but I just find sloppy making the GENERATOR open the script on the installed SciTE, clicking in the menus, waiting the process to end and then exit.
      When I hit the Compile or Build on SciTE, it generates this output:

      +>17:34:38 AutoIt3Wrapper Finished.
      >Exit code: 0    Time: 3.515
      I've tried emulating this using the promt with console commands:
      Spoiler AutoIt3.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /NoStatus /prod /in "E:\_ARQUIVOS\PROJETOS\PROJETO INTERMIX\VERSION\0.1.0\SOURCE\client\IntermixClient.au3"
      Spoiler aut2exe.exe  /in "E:\_ARQUIVOS\PROJETOS\PROJETO INTERMIX\VERSION\0.1.0\SOURCE\client\IntermixClient.au3" /out "E:\_ARQUIVOS\PROJETOS\PROJETO INTERMIX\VERSION\0.1.0\COMPILADO\IntermixClient.Exe" /nopack /icon "img\icon.ico" /comp 2
      It returns an error saying it was not possible to perform a resource update, poiting an TMP file on the ".../AppData/Local/AutoIt3/".
      As I understand, it runs the AutoIt3Wrapper, then the Wrapper should call the Aut2Exe to compile the script and then the Wrapper incorporate the resources into the compiled Script. It generates the file into a TMP one then copies to the directory defined in the Wrapper Directive.
      I know this seems strange, that you think I might be trying to pack AutoIt into my project with no F*** given, no... I just want to automate the compilation process, if there's no solution using console commands, I'll need to automate the process sending keyboard and mouse commands, what will be ugly and problematic.
      So... any help is a heaven's gift at this point.

      Best way to play little video inside a Gui
      By rootx
      I would like to insert a video player inside the gui Autoit, preferably one with a free license such as Media Player Classic or VLC, I saw in the forum but I found examples of many years ago.
      Some examples links or advice would be much help
