Various Issues with SciTE4AutoIt3

8 posts in this topic

I am running v 3.3.8.1 on Win 7 64-bit and I am having some problems. Basically, some things just don't work.

Examples:

  • F5, F7, Ctrl + F7 works as expected, and I can enter paramaters with Shift + F8, but the parameters don't seem to get used for F5. For example, $CmdLine[0] reports zero.
  • Ctrl+Shift+D doesn't work. Nothing happens when I envoke it.
  • Ctrl+F5 does nothing.
  • Alt+G doesn't work.
I am wondering if maybe the things that aren't working rely on Lua or something and that isn't functioning properly on my system.

Any ideas how to troubleshoot these issues?

They all work for me. Try downloading the full version from the downloads page, and see if this solves the problem for you.

Full version of which? The full version of AutoIt is already installed. Not sure if that is what you meant or something else?

I would recommend when it asks you if you wish to install for x86 or x64, just use the x86 installation, even though you are on a 64bit os.


Spoiler

“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

Not really related to the OPs issue.

Just install the separate scite4autoit3 installer and See if all is working then.

I first tried uninstalling and reinstalling AutoIt and chose to use x86 by default.

That didn't change anything.

I then downloaded and installed the full version of SciTE linked to here and things... umm... changed. Some things remain broken, others are fixed, and yet things that were working are now broken.

Examples:

  • F5, F7, and Ctrl + F7 don't do anything, but those actions chosen via menu do.
  • Ctrl+Shift+D now works
  • Shift + F8 no longer invokes the parameters dialog, but I can use the menu to open it, and now the parameters are used when I run the script.
  • F5 invokes an Open File dialog.
  • F6 closes the file open in the editor and starts a new blank file.
  • Shift + F5 does not clear the output pane, but menu item works.
I am totally confused by what is going on. I'm not sure what is causing these issues. The common thing seems to be that shortcut keys don't work as they should. But I am not sure that is the only thing wrong.

UPDATE: Installing the full version of SciTE fixed things. All seems to be working now.

For a moment I thought that I had turned off the function keys (I have a Microsoft 4000 keyboard) and that that might have been the origional problem, but it was not. But, in doing so, I had them off as I first tested with the full version of SciTE and then realized my error.

Thanks for all the help.

P.S. As is my custom, I have made a donation (in this case, to AutoIt) because this issue was resolved by the forums/community. I do so when I get help on FOSS from forums, IRC, etc.

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx

      Hello,
      very propably this has been asked before, well, I miss the thread(s) ...
      Is there a command line switch to tell the SciTE setup EXE to install silently ("/S") *AND* to end up with "edit" (instead of "run") as system wide default action for *.au3 files?
       

       
      As it can be done with the config tool:

      Regards, Rudi.

      I use a monospace font for editing AutoIt scripts in SciTE (currently, CourierNew 9pt). Regardless of what font size I set in the configuration, when I start SciTE to resume editing the script text is one size smaller than I specified. When I type Ctrl+<numpad-slash> the text changes to the desired size. The same is true of the output pane, and I have to reset the size for both areas every time I start SciTE.
      IIRC, I've made few other changes to the configuration (e.g., changed the search highlight color and disabled Tidy), so this behavior seems odd. About SciTE says it's version 3.6.0 (Aug. 4, 2015).
      Any idea how to fix this?

      As they're opinion-based to some degree; how are AutoIt's best practices decided and do suggestions get considered?
      Some suggestions :
      For...To...Step...Next -loop variable-naming like $iN ($i1, $i2, etc.) : conforms to recommended naming convention, identifies level (albeit inverted to ExitLoop and ContinueLoop's convention) and enables SciTE selection-highlighting (requires minimum of 3 characters). Minimize logic in global scope, separate data & settings from logic, use of vertical space, project organization (folder structure, resource- and include file management). Example (loop variable-naming, minimizing logic in global scope and separation of settings from logic) :
      #include <Array.au3> Global Enum $RANDOM_RETURNFLOAT, _ $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER Global Enum $EXITCODE_NONE Global Const $g_sChar0 = '-' Global Const $g_sChar1 = '+' Global Const $g_iAmountX = 10 Global Const $g_iAmountY = $g_iAmountX Main() Func Main() Local $aArray[$g_iAmountY][$g_iAmountX] For $i1 = 0 To $g_iAmountY - 1 For $i2 = 0 To $g_iAmountX - 1 $aArray[$i1][$i2] = Random(0, 1, $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER) ? $g_sChar1 : $g_sChar0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Exit $EXITCODE_NONE EndFunc Example (project organization) :
      + project_folder + bak [backup files] + bin [distributed binaries and dependencies] + inc [non-standard include files] + res [resource files (icons, file+install files, etc.)] + usr [configuration files, databases, etc.] - script.au3 - script.exe Example (use of vertical space) :
      Func _DigitalRoot($iNum) Local $sNum = '' Local $aNum While $iNum > 9 $sNum = String($iNum) $aNum = StringSplit($sNum, '') $iNum = 0 For $i1 = 1 To $aNum[0] $iNum += Int($aNum[$i1]) Next WEnd Return $iNum EndFunc
