I don't know why you have to use myhttpsproxy.com. It may be something with servers, I don't know. I updated source package, including some UDFs and optimized the code for version 3.3.10.2 of AutoIt. And you'll have to move, delete or rename Au3Check.exe to get rid of errors (works for me).

Well, i have tried by your installer and it's seems to work well !  :)

But how do you "undo" an action ?

ctrl+z has no effect.

I looked in your scirpt

where you have $pi declaration ?

EDIT1:

and $hMain , I mean you use it here

_ClipBoard_Open($hMain)

EDIT2:

where is Function _MultiTaskDialog()

EDIT3:

in gui.au3

change this:

Func _HighlightTools($id)

EndFunc

to:

Func _HighlightTools($id = Default) ; Default to omnit Aucheck Error by _HighlightTools() in external.au3k

EndFunc   ;==>_HighlightTools

Hello my friend.

It looks very good.

 

I wish that this time, you have not included the code.
I was curious what you did progress.

It would really help if you make training videos how to make a number of basic things - like how to add another layer, copy layer and some other basics.

If you do that it will very help.
Right now, I do not know how to do these basic things. If I knew, I was using your software!

 

And also add support for PSD files!

Well done!

Some comments about your coding style, and some good advice {I hope}


1.

in some include file you have not add #include-once

Add this to all.


2.

You do not need declare any variable in some cases:

for example:

Func _GetXMLTagArray($d, $n)
    $srt = _StringBetween($d, "<"&$n&">", "</"&$n&">")
    Return $srt
EndFunc

you can do this just like this:

Func _GetXMLTagArray($d, $n)
    Return _StringBetween($d, "<"&$n&">", "</"&$n&">")
EndFunc

even here:

Func _GetXMLMetaName($sTagData)
    $s = StringSplit($sTagData, " ")
    Return $s[1]
EndFunc

you can do this:

Func _GetXMLMetaName($sTagData)
    Return StringSplit($sTagData, " ")[1]
EndFunc


3.

Use scope in declaration

for example:

Func _AddPath_XML()
    If $isOpen = 0 Then Return 0
    $xml = FileOpenDialog("", "", "Path data (*.XML)")
    If @error Then Return 0
    $xmld = FileRead($xml)
    $isDoing = 1
Func _AddPath_XML()
    If $isOpen = 0 Then Return 0
    Local $xml = FileOpenDialog("", "", "Path data (*.XML)")
    If @error Then Return 0
    Local $xmld = FileRead($xml)
    Local $isDoing = 1

if some Variable are global add underline 

for example

Global $iApplicationVersion = 3.2 
Global $aLayers[1] = [0], $aLayerN[1] = [0], $aLayerB[1] = [0], $bInverseGrad = 0, $bFlipGrad

change to this:

Global $_iApplicationVersion = 3.2 
Global $_aLayers[1] = [0], $_aLayerN[1] = [0], $_aLayerB[1] = [0], $_bInverseGrad = 0, $_bFlipGrad

then in all your au3 modules it became easier to read and understand the code.

4.

I see you do not use Tidy . Why ?

look

Your code:

$file = @ScriptDir&"\Data\Mesh\"&GUICtrlRead($cidModel)
$iRadius = ((GUICtrlRead($cidRadius)/100)*(($iW+$iH)/2))/2

after using Tidy:

$file = @ScriptDir & "\Data\Mesh\" & GUICtrlRead($cidModel)
$iRadius = ((GUICtrlRead($cidRadius) / 100) * (($iW + $iH) / 2)) / 2

5.

nice, but why twice ?

If Not IsDeclared("Pi") Then Global Const $Pi = 4*ATan(1)
If Not IsDeclared("Pi") Then Global $Pi = 4*Atan(1)

btw.

I'm still impressed.

Hello. I've just uploaded vPaint 3.4, so have fun.

To mLipok, I don't use Tidy, because it crashes on my computer. I don't know why. I've just read your post, so I didn't use your advices, but I've made vPaint's code more modular.

New features

  • Calipers tool
  • Radial gradients
  • Support for Truevision Targa
  • HDR Merge (experimental)
  • New HUD icons

And to gil900, I've added first tutorial (Layers). I hope it'll be helpful.

      So I just got a new computer, and instantly went and installed Autoit onto it. I selected run script as default action when clicking on an au3 file, however every time I do this it opens the script in the editor. I can from there run the script no problem.
      I've tried reinstalling and checking the settings by hitting "Ctrl+1" and have confirmed it is set to run, but yet it just continues to open in the editor.
      Any ideas why this is happening or how to solve?
      New system is windows 10, old was windows 7

      Hello,
      I am making a program where the button is an image that "changes" when specific conditions are fullfilled. Problem is that these images have different dimensions and when a smaller picture is displayed over a bigger one both will be seen, therefore i would like the images to be hidden, invincible or, alternatively, deleted.
      I have tried using _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear() with no luck
      However that might just be me not using it right as im quite new to autoit
      Here is the code if you want to test run it:
      Thanks to everyone helping!

      Here another example to mark the desktop to get the marked region for capturing. This example is not perfect and not very fast (room for improvements).

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
       
      Tested on Win10 x64 only.

      I'm building a tool to remotely monitor CPU usage on my server.
      I have a working tool but I have a few issues I'd like some help with.
      1. The app uses more system memory on a continual growth rate...  It eventually starts displaying strange artifacts and the background flashes between black and and white behind the GDI+ elements.  I determined this couldn't be left to run for any amount of time (greater than 15-20 minutes) - Very frustrating.
      I suspect it's because it keeps drawing new GDI+ elements to replace the previous cycle ... the $bar1 = "" is enough to remove the image and allow the new image to be drawn there, but I don't have a handle for the original GDI+ element to throw it away... Not sure where they go...
      I also suspect there could be a better way to do what I'm doing here, but from a problem solving perspective - this is what I came up with - I will accept suggestions for how better to accomplish the same / better or acceptable results  
      I will not however accept corrections on grammar, punctuation or commenting - I didn't comment this as I was going, I use the variables that make sense to me (or as they were when I lifted them from the scraps I found on the internet) and you can never be too careful with punctuation.
      2. I have a WMI query that is used to remotely pull the CPU data from the server - if I supply the wrong credentials the app crashes... I tried to make it show an error and go back to allow me to try again ... doesn't work. Any help with catching that error and preventing the crash would be super helpful. (works great if the credentials are correct; domain or local)
