[Solved] What Happened to SyntaxCheck (CTRL-F5)?

34 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi

I installed the latest version of AutoIt 2 weeks ago,

and now when I write code and press CTRL-F5 to verify it, nothing happens..

Where is this feature now?

Thank you

Zohar,

Are you running prod or beta? CTRL+F5 = prod, CTRL+ALT+F5 = beta.

Hi

I installed the regular download - 3.3.8.1

It's the first item in this page:

http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/downloads/

called "AutoIt Full Installation".

Ctrl-F5 always existed in prior versions - why did it disappear now in this version?

No, it's the Lite version that comes with the main download:

In the about screen it says:

"SciTE-Lite

Version 2.28"

If I use the Lite version then I can't verify my code? :(

why was it removed?

Zohar,

The ability to use Ctrl+F5 to run AU3Check is an integral part of AutoIt3Wrapper which has only ever been part of the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package. Just download and install that package from here and you will regain that functionality. :)

Hi Melba23

which has only ever been part of the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package

I must tell you this is not correct..

It is correct that AutoIt3Wrapper was in SciteFull,

but Ctrl-F5 used to work in the regular installer of AutoIt - the one that includes Scite-Lite..

(I even have my previous installer: v3.3.6.1) and in it, you can see that Ctrl-F5 works..

Zohar,

You may well be correct, it is so long since I used SciTE-Lite that I really cannot remember. But just install the full version and then you get your key combination to work again - and lots of other goodies as well. :)

OK..

Just to verify..

If I installed the main Installer, called "AutoIt Full Installation",

then I need to install SciTE4AutoIt3.exe (4679Kb)?

That's OK?

I just verfied this, 3.3.6.1 lite version does have the option to check with CTRL-F5, 3.3.8.1 does not except if you have a file that hasn't been saved. As soon as you save it, the CTRL-F5 option disappears from the Tools menu.


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 just verfied this, 3.3.6.1 lite version does have the option to check with CTRL-F5

And not just 3.3.6.1, but all prior versions had it since I started using AutoIt several years ago..

Please note another problem with v3.3.8.1:

When you select a code, the BackColor for the Selection was changed in v3.3.8.1, and is not noticable at all!

Try selecting a Code with the mouse(or Shift+Arrows), and you'll see that you can barely notice what is in the selection and what is not..

why are all those bad changes? :(

Another update:

After installing Scite Full,

it seems that Ctrl-F5 works there,

however Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right don't. (for jumping the cursor 1 word each time)

Also some of the utils included with Scite Full, crash or show an error:

Example:

Running Au3Record, gave this:

In any case, I must admit that I like the simpleness and lightness of Scite Lite..

I would really like to have the "AutoIt Full Installation" simply work, like it always did..

(and with a noticable background color, when selecting code)

If you guys can make it work like it used to, it can be great.

Fow now, I am uninstalling v3.3.8.1, and going back to v3.3.6.1.

You need the latest beta V3.3.9.0+ to fix that error with Au3Record, though in all honestly do you really need that application? Oh nd a quick search (as you know) would have pretty much answered that issue with Au3Record.

Fow now, I am uninstalling v3.3.8.1, and going back to v3.3.6.1.

I just gave an example with Au3Record.

Frankly, I really don't need Au3Record or the other Util that crashed(forgot what it was).

For that reason, I would not like to install Scite-Full, and simply stay with Scite-Lite - that comes built-in with the AutoIt Installation.

A little drastic considering most of us here haven't had any issues in the last 12 months.

Well,

I need SyntaxCheck to work,

and I'd really like Text/Code Selecting to be with the usual Background color, and not the new Background Color that is not noticable..

Obviously someone played with the Settings, and not in a good way..

The colors of the editor window can be easily changed, you just have to modify the sciteuser.properties file to have your's use the colors you want.

Use the color settings in the code below and change them to what you'd like:

font.base=font:Source Code Pro,size:10,$(font.override)

font.monospace=font:Source Code Pro,size:10

proper.case=1

check.updates.scite4autoit3=1

use.tabs=0

indent.size=4

indent.size.*.au3=4

tabsize=4

Thanks!

when I goto C:Program FilesAutoIt3SciTE,

I only have 3 items there:

No sciteuser.properties file there..

(Scite Lite)

So can I simply create it?

and then it will read it?

Open the Options menu, click on the "Open User Options File" entry and it will open it for you. It will create it if it doesn't already exist when you save it.
