Help File/Documentation Issues. (Discussion Only)


Recommended Posts

I was reading https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/162588-extended-length-support-in-file-functions-beta-for-reference/?do=findComment&comment=1190661 

and decided to search for UNICODE in the help file. reading along I read that the command line is

Aut2exe.exe / In < infile.au3 >[/out < outfile.exe >][/icon < iconfile.ico >][/comp 0 - 4][/nopack][/x64][/bin < binfile.bin >]

and the 

Command Line Notes
Long filenames should be enclosed in double-quotes like "C:\Program Files\Test\test.au3".

With the exception of /in all switches are optional.

By default, the 32-bit compiler produces a 32-bit binary and the 64-bit compiler produces a 64-bit binary. Use the /x86 and /x64 parameters to explicitly specify the output.

The /pass and /nodecompile switches are redundant as of version 3.2.8.1. They will be ignored if used and have been removed from this list.

The /ansi and /unicode switches are redundant as of version 3.3.0.0.

The /bin switch is redundant as of version 3.3.10.0 and has been removed from this list..

so the [/bin < binfile.bin >] should be removed

mLipok, My suggestion would be that you: 1. Amend the opening phrase of the "Remarks" sections of the SetError and SetExtended pages to read: 2. Amend the "Function Notes" page "Succe

That would apply to every registry function, so why this one specifically?

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.

oh, no clue. This is the first time I became aware of the use of "$KEY_WOW64_64KEY". Haven't seen any examples of it's use and thought that having one example would show why the "$KEY_NOTIFY" not work if the compilation don't match the OS's ( 32 vs 64 ). I didn't do a deep dive into the help file, just that one example.

Then you haven't searched, there are dozens of times that the x86/64 issue has come up, both in registry and file reference functions. It's referenced in the help file under the heading "AutoIt => Using AutoIt => Running under Windows 64-bit Edition"

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.

Ok, this is not related to "HKCR64 or HKLM64".
In _WinAPI_SfcIsKeyProtected and _WinAPI_RegCreateKey are mentions of $KEY_WOW64_64KEY but no examples.
What I present shows an example. It would not hurt to have at least one example in a help file.

@people who are able to modify the wiki documentation pages :

First of all, I apologize if this post will be very long (my biggest default) but I like to explain in details, with pics etc...
A couple of days ago, I wanted to help Moist in this thread and before I replied to him, I was very happy to read in the help file, topic GUICtrlCreatePic(), the following sentence :

"To set the picture control to the same size as the file content, set width and height to 0"

Terrific feature I thought, but a couple of hours later and after dozen of useless tests, trying any kind of picture size/extension or applying any style / extended style, it didn't work.

Then I thought : "why not trying to copy and paste the whole sentence in Google and see where it goes from here ?"
I knew it would return dozen of links referring to the help file but I was lucky enough to find this link, Ticket #3682 reported by anonymous 11 months ago (ticket still opened waiting for a reply) and here is a resume of what anonymous wrote :

...While in AutoIt 3.3.12.0 this worked nice, in 3.3.14.5 this causes the image to be displayed in a 150x150 square...

After reading that, I downloaded several AutoIt versions (including the 3 Beta's) just to try that specific feature and double check anonymous test, here are the results :

1674866143_163-3in1.jpg.aca2bba67a0de64a363889bc229d6184.jpg

And this is the script used to display the 2 Gui's from the precedent picture, please feel free to try it with any of your pictures :

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>

$hGui = GUICreate("163 - AutoIt " & @AutoItVersion, 300, 435)
GUICtrlCreatePic(@ScriptDir & "\163 - Original pic.jpg", 1, 1, 0, 0)
GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
GUIDelete($hGui)

As you can see, the downgrade happened when AutoIt 3.3.14.3 was released, because everything works fine with all precedent versions I tested, last working version is 3.3.14.2
Imho, this downgrade could be related to another ticket #2916 as shown in AutoIt history (though I may be mistaken) :

1777043120_163-AutoIthistory.png.17cc3ee4404feb49d87f32651aaf7e7c.png

So the only thing I'm asking now is : could it be possible to any of you to modify this wiki page and add a note to indicate that this feature is no more available actually, something like this :

To set the picture control to the same size as the file content set width and height to 0.
(this feature is broken since version AutoIt 3.3.14.3, waiting to be fixed)

Of course the local help file AutoIt.chm on our HD won't reflect this modification (until next AutoIt release) but at least, when in doubt concerning any function, we all could rely on Wiki doc to make sure that we are reading the most recent help file fully amended.

Thanks for reading and thumbs up to our devoted wiki contributors :thumbsup:

Edit : in case you wonder why I also downloaded the antique versions autoit-v3.2.10.0 (2007) and autoit-v3.2.12.0 (2008), it's because another important thing changed in AutoIt between these 2 versions (more than 11 years ago) but the actual help file doesn't reflect it and still indicates a wrong sentence. If I got strength enough, I'll prepare another fully detailed post. That magnifier in the avatar is a big help :)

The example for _WinAPI_GetWindowDC (actually it is the _WinAPI_CreatePen example) does not work when run from SciTE. The cross does not get fully drawn and it disapears in a split second. But it should get displayed for 3 seconds.
This only happen when the example is run from SciTE. Why is described here.

To solve the problem I would like to Exit the example script when uncompiled with a MsgBox describing the problem an explaining the solution.

What do you think?

In the _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetTransform example, the DrawInsert function is missing the $fAngle in the documentation... kinda not a problem, but very confusing when trying to use it and your picture suddenly rotates! :D

Edit: More than one of the UDFs uses this function... I can get a list if you need
Edit2: Too tired, it was the same function. Going to bed now

I would suggest mentioning that OnAutoItExitRegister doesn't declare variables that have a default value in the function definition

(Apparently I really like OnAutoItExitRegister) Also undocumented:

  • it accepts a function instead of its name --> OnAutoItExitRegister(Closing)
  • It won't call a function twice even if you register it twice
  • it uses a first-in last-out approach to calling registered functions

All my code provided is Public Domain... but it may not work. ;) Use it, change it, break it, whatever you want.

You add browser check for IE only

if ((navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer") && (parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4)) // IE (4+) only

You can add for FireFox

function ClipBoard(NumBlok) {
    var input = document.createElement('textarea');
    input.innerHTML = NumBlok.innerText;
    document.body.appendChild(input);
    input.select();
    document.execCommand('copy');
    document.body.removeChild(input);
}

Add to online documentation...

universally:

function ClipBoard(NumBlok) {
    var input = document.createElement('textarea');
    if ((navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer") && (parseInt(navigator.appVersion) >= 4)) // IE (4+) only
        input.innerText = NumBlok.innerText;
    else
        input.innerHTML = NumBlok.innerText;
    document.body.appendChild(input);
    input.select();
    document.execCommand('copy');
    document.body.removeChild(input);

_WinAPI_SystemParametersInfo() , 4th parameter $iWinIni , help file :

"...$SPIF_SENDCHANGE - Broadcasts the $WM_SETTINGCHANGE message after updating the user profile."

When you read this, you may think that you can't/shouldn't use $SPIF_SENDCHANGE without updating the user profile first, which is wrong. Because an update to the user profile can sometimes be dangerous, so maybe it would be better to indicate this in the help file :

"...$SPIF_SENDCHANGE - Broadcasts the $WM_SETTINGCHANGE message (no matter you updated the user profile or not)"

From MSDN, this link :

WM_SETTINGCHANGE : A message that is sent to all top-level windows when the SystemParametersInfo function changes a system-wide setting or when policy settings have changed.

Applications should send WM_SETTINGCHANGE to all top-level windows when they make changes to system parameters.

An example from Musashi, using $SPIF_SENDCHANGE (value = 2) , followed by a test done just after by lee321987 in this link, using $SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE (value = 1) to make the update permanent.

All this tends to indicate that you can use $SPIF_SENDCHANGE without any fear, because if you do anything wrong during your experimentations with _WinAPI_SystemParametersInfo(), then everything will go fine after a reboot (as the registry won't have been updated)

Imho, $SPIF_SENDCHANGE isn't a dangerous parameter, while $SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE is (especially if you didn't write somewhere the original value of the parameter you mistakenly modified in the registry)

There isn't output listed anywhere, you have to run the programs :) (I get it though, I looked for it too)

      ATTENTION! THIS IS STILL WORK IN PROGRESS!
      This is the modified version of MrCreatoR's "Simple Library Docs Generator".
      It allows to create CHM help files that look like the AutoIt help file.
      In additon this CHM files can then be used with Advanced.Help.
      This a very early alpha version - so it is miles away from being perfect. It's just something for you to play with.
      The documentation is in the making and will be published as soon as possible.

      #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters= ;Au3Check parameters...see SciTE4AutoIt3 Helpfile for options Am I missing them elsewhere in the helpfile, or is this a circular reference?  (My helpfile was last updated in the history on 23-3-2021)

      Due to corona I have a  lot of spare time at the moment. So I started to create a "real" help file fo the AD UDF (MS Active Directory).
      This help file should look/work like the AutoIt help file.

      Attached you find the first beta of the AD help file.
       
      Done so far:
      Similar functions have been assigned to a group (example: mail, mailbox and Exchange related functions have been assigned to the "EMail" group) Content, Search and Index tabs work Formatting is similar to the AutoIt help file Introduction page ToDo:
      Fill index tab Use folder icons Set the correct font size for the TOC Enhance the CSS to fully match the formatting of the AutoIt help file Create a documentation so you can create CHM files for other homegrown UDFs Create pages for the chapters - return an error message at the moment Upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft HTML Workshop Seems 1.3 is the latest What do you think?
      Is something still missing on the ToDo-list?

      Hi,
        been searching for a way to Pause a HotKeySet and it would seem that the Help File has one beautifully prepared.
      But it turns out that Pause does not stop the HotKeySet from working.
        Anyone know why? And/Or how to fix it?
      Thanks,
      Bill
