SciTE Error prevents F5 script run - how to report?

Recommended Posts

I'm doing some Outlook e-mail automation and have hit what appears to be an error in SciTE.
It's flagging an object property as a keyword.
Here's the code:

Func _EmailResults($filepath, $emailaddress)
    $objOutlook = ObjCreate("Outlook.Application")
    $objMail = $objOutlook.CreateItem($olMailItem)
    With $objMail
        .To = $emailaddress
        .Subject = @UserName & " Project Forecast for " & @MON & "/" & @MDAY & "/" & @YEAR
        .Attachments.Add($filepath & ".xlsx")
    Local $signature = $objMail.HTMLBody
    $objMail.HTMLBody = " Weekly forecast" & $signature

The problem is line 5, the .To = $emailaddress.

SciTE kicks that out with " error: missing separator character before keyword.

So it's seeing the "To" as the AutoIT keyword "To" from "From.. To.. Next" and telling me I wrote it wrong.

However, the program compiles without error and runs correctly.

Does anyone know a way to exclude .To from the checking?

And does anyone know how to file a bug against SciTE?  I went through the Scintilla site to the SourceForge page and just could not find a way to submit a bug.

Thanks, all.

      If you have every taken the time to set up a nice dark theme for your scite editor, you probably noticed shortly after a small yet really annoying flaw. For what ever reason, scite is not set up to let you change the caret fore color and caret line color per language. This really sucks if say you want to edit a properties file or any of the many other languages that Scite currently is setup to support. Pretty much all the other languages are set as light theme so unless you change the theme for those file types, you end up with something like below where the line color and caret are still using the dark theme colors. Line 3 in the pic:

      To get around this I came up with the following that seems to work pretty well.  
      Add the following properties to SciteUser.properties file (Options -> Open User Options File). Update colors to your own needs. You can addionally add any other propertys that dont have a lexer language option in the same fashion.
      # The default values (light themes) will be used for any lexer other than au3 caret.default.fore=#000000 caret.default.line.back=#FFFED8 selection.default.fore=#006000 selection.default.back=#F0A0A8 caret.au3.fore=#FFFFFF caret.au3.line.back=#111111 selection.au3.fore=#C2FFAE selection.au3.back=#f9f9f9  
      Add the following function to PersonalTools.Lua file. As jos pointed out, the OnStartup covers the filetab switches as well as the startup so only need the one function:
      function PersonalTools:OnStartup() -- the "and" + "or" keywords are ternary operators here local sLex = self:IsLexer(SCLEX_AU3) and 'au3' or 'default' props['caret.line.back'] = props['caret.' .. sLex .. '.line.back'] props['caret.fore'] = props['caret.' .. sLex .. '.fore'] props['selection.fore'] = props['selection.' .. sLex .. '.fore'] props['selection.back'] = props['selection.' .. sLex .. '.back'] end
      Last restart SciTE and that should be it. Let me know if you have any issues. Thanks

      Trying to figure out how to do CallByName on AutoIt COM objects due to the lack of being able to set properties within an Execute() statement
      Several Ideas were Tried https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/200129-set-object-properties-with-propertyname-and-value-taken-from-an-array/
      I think this is the best; Patching the vtable of IDispatch so we can intercept a Fake function call ($obj.Au3_CallByName)
      use it like this
      Local $oDictionary = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary") ; EXAMPLE Au3_CallByname_Init() ; (you can optionally provide a classname here but we patch the main Idispatch interface so really no need) $Au3_CallByName = "Add" ; Method we want to call $oDictionary.Au3_CallByName("Test", "Value") Au3_CallByname_Init(False) ; (Not Strictly Needed unhooked on exit) NOTE:  Au3_CallByname_Init() doesn't have to be called at the top of the script, just call it before you need to call by name...

      Is there a way to remove the numbers from the tabs in Scite?
      When you have multiple autoit programs open, the tabs are numbered, so you'll get something like 1 ProgramA.au3    2 Program2.au3   3 Program3.au3
      I am working on programs with numbers as the first character, so I get  1 3-DoThis.au3     2 4-DoAnother.au3   3 5-DoTheRest.au3  (not the real program names, obviously :))
      It would be nice if I could get rid of the tab number, and just have the program name on each tab.

      I just noticed that Outlook does not allow to import iCal events programmatically.
      I might implement some of the iCalendar data format (RFC 5545) if someone is interested
