Scite / AU3 with multiple includes

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone! This is a bit off topic but I'm hoping that someone can help me out here. I'm working on a large application in Autoit that I've separated over multiple include files; it's just easier to work with in my opinion. The problem I continue to run into is when I'm working on one of the include files I tend to forget that I'm not in the "main" file, so when I hit F5 to run the application it errors. I was wondering if there was a way to tell all of the secondary include files to run the main file when F5 is selected.

Hopefully? ;)

nopenopenopenope , that's not how the autoit3wrapper.exe currently works.

But that's actually a pretty legit idea, a directive to add that will tell the wrapper to run a certain file instead of the current file. not bad... not bad at all..


Things that I've done..

Icon Resource Editor: icon resource editor 

AutoIt Piano: a piano

AutoIt Unlocker: unlocks files when you want to delete them

Colorful tooltips: a wrapper for the tool tips UDF

Rouge GoogleBot: a full screen animation

ASciTE text editor: a text editor written in autoit

If you save all of your secondary files with either no filename extension, or some extension that's not .au3, then in Scite, the F5 key does nothing. Include files don't need to be named with an .au3 extension, that's just done for consistency.


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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
