SciTE Console colour correction

9 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I've been experimenting with the colour options for the SciTE script editor included with AutoIT's full installation, and seem to be having a bit of trouble achieving the colours I'm after....

After reading the given documentation for ConsoleWrite (the function i'm trying to use), I can see that the default colours are chosen with the following parameters:

! = Red
> = Blue
- = Orange
+ = Green

However, I'm receiving the following;

Capture.png

As you can see, the output is still formatted with colours, Only they're not what I was expecting.

I assume this is a setting in SciTE rather than the AutoIT language, Has anyone come across any settings within SciTE regarding console colouring? I've been through various properties and settings for SciTE. but can't seem to find anything that references console or colour.

May sound like i'm grasping at straws a bit here, But I'm after formatting certain outputs with red text more than anything.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Javi.

It still works for me with the correct colors. It looks like you have loaded some changes colorscheme, maybe you also have changes in there for these output pane colors?

Hi Jos,

Thanks for your response, That would make sense as to why the colours don't match up.

The only problem is, I'm pretty certain I haven't edited the colour scheme... In fact, after googling how to change the colour scheme in SciTE, I can confirm I have not changed any .properties file for SciTE.

The only thing I can think of that may have changed the colour scheme is >ISN AutoIT Studio when I installed it a month or so back.

I've checked my SciTE installation dir, And the 'others.properties' mentioned in the SciTE faq doesn't exist... So I'd assume the colours i'm seeing are the default colours for the SciTE editor, and i simply don't have the autoIT version of the properties file.

Thanks for your help though, It's definitely led me on the right path.

Many Thanks

Javi

 

EDIT: After completely uninstalling SciTE and AutoIT, then reinstalling the all in one package, I am still having the same issue.

The issue seems to be related to the complete installation (or at least every version I've downloaded) as the SciTE dir contains hardly any of the custom properties, Below is the zip folder for SciTE, and the SciTE dir after the complete installation is run:

upload.png

after adding these files to the installation directory the problem is solved.

Thanks for your help.

What all-in-one package? Based on the picture you only installed AutoIt. SciTE4AutoIt comes with it own installer.

 

That is correct, I installed the 'full installation' of AutoIT, which after going back and reading the software details contains a 'cut down' version of SciTE...

It's a little odd that the full installation doesn't include the full directory of files... Surely it's not a full installation and more of a core file installation.

But then I suppose you could argue that the additional files for SciTE are in no way necessary.

Still, It would be nice if they were optional in the installer package... Much like the examples are.

Thanks

Javi.

They are available separately because not everyone uses SciTE, and it makes the download smaller. If you want the full set of tools, then download the installer for Scite4AutoIt3, or download the individual tools which are also available separately for download.


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.

Would you Javi or some one from SciTE please tell us where we can get the missing file? I grabbed the FAQ from the link posted "thank you" Now where do we get openLocalOptions files because I click openlocalOption SciTE.properties opens In fact openlocaluserOptions does the same I also have 2 links to au3.properties that are

# SciTE settings for AutoIt v3

#

# July 2014 - Jos

#

# *** Specify here your AutoIt Include directories  ***

Are there any plugins for SciTE or better yet any upgrades for KODA? KODA has issues.. older versions worked better.. they seldom got laggy like this version does. and they didn't forget all the button names and very seldom crashed.

One more thing, AU3info seems to need a vacation with this version,, he just hangs around and wiggles for a while and then tells windows he is non responsive,, I tried CPR,, but just got my lips dirty from the screen..

Many thanks.. No biggie. guys.. just takes a lot longer to use AutoHotkey tools and convert.. YES 3 CLEAN installs and the same issues//

      Hi,
      I think, you all know this: You look at a script containing color values. You have a rough idea of the colors, but would like to know how it looks like. 
      I have created a Lua script that displays the color of the value in SciTE as Calltip. Set the cursor in the Hex-value, press the hotkey. Above the value a Call tip appears. The background color corresponds to the hex value.
      Read the function header to obtain installation instructions.
      So it looks.  
      EDIT:
      I think it's better to bind the function not only of AutoIt. If it can be called in all files, also the color settings in the * .properties can view. For this purpose remove the file attachment from the call. Use: command.13.*=  instead of: command.13.*.au3=
       
      EDIT 20.07.2015:
      Now I've made some changes
      - You can switch to show colors as RGB or BGR
      - added new function: PreviewBackForeColor
      To have a preview for back and fore color:
      - Write in one line first the back color, than the fore color (i. e. as comment: "; 0xDEDEDE 0x000080") OR
        have this values inside a function call: "_AnyFunction($param1, $param2, 0xDEDEDE, $param3 0x000080)".
        If the order inside the call is reverse (first hex value is fore color), you can call the function with Flag "_fFore1st=true"
      - No other color value may be included in this line. If any - the first and second color will used.
      - Set the cursor in this line and hit the Hotkey.
      - A Calltip appears with the back color and the text "FORE-COLOR" with color of the fore value.
      - If only one color value was find in this line, this value will used as back color or, if Flag is "true", as fore color.
        In this cases the fore color is set to black and with Flag the back color is the default GUI back color "0xF0F0F0"
      Because you've different functions in one script, you need another way to install and call it. Read the instructions inside the script.
      First color used as back color, second as fore color.
       
      Function called with flag - first color is now the fore color.
       

       
      EDIT 2018-01-16:
      Added: 
      Now be also recognized in au3 scripts, variables/constants which have an color assignment inside the script or inside an include file from this script.
      But it can only be one assignment per line. If the assignment is inside a comment line or -block, it will ignored.
      The assignment can also be build by using function(s) [from script or include files].
      example:  "Local $COLOR = '0x' & Hex(Mod(@SEC, 2) ? Random(0,0x000FFF, 1) : Random(0x001000, 0xFFF000, 1), 8)"
      But the functions must NOT CONTAIN any VARIABLES! This would require a recursive assignment search. Impossible if variables get values only at runtime.
      You can disable the search inside include files with an entry in SciTEUser.properties:
      #~ "ShowHexColorFromCursor.lua", Dis/Enable search in Includes (0/1  NO/YES)
      Get.Color.Assignment.Includes=0
      The default value (without settings) is '1', enabled.
      Includes in comments will ignored.
      current version v0.8

PREVIEW FOR BACK AND FORE COLOR: - Write in one line first the back color, than the fore color (i. e. as comment: "; 0xDEDEDE 0x000080") OR have this values inside a function call: "_AnyFunction($param1, $param2, 0xDEDEDE, $param3 0x000080)".

      A fullscreen console with custom commands!

      Introduction:
      Hi everyone!
      This funny project started as a question in the help section:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/174404-edit-detect-key-before-updating-content/
      I'd like to share this script with everyone that is interested. 
       
      Why would I want it?
      You like the old style fullscreen console (like in the old day's), You can add custom commands, You can customize the font a lot more compared to cmd.exe, You can share ideas or add tweaks to the script.  
      Still to do:
      Write a simple custom programming language to implement this tool. Writing a little help file / pdf to describe my little programming language. Add little sound effects like a beep if there is a syntax error (optional). Clean up and modify Console.Au3 content. Add an option to have to type a login password (optional). Make an optional installer that also gives scripts for this tool a custom icon and open with command. ...Call Neo?  
      Thanks to:
      xxaviarxx: debugging, some ideas. jguinch: debugging, adding a bunch of tweaks and ideas. kylomas: debugging, new ideas.  
      Edits and updates:
      Added usage of tab key in edit control Edit has focus now on startup I'm currently rewriting a simple custom programming language to implement this tool.  
      UDF download: Console.au3

      Hi.
      While programming I often use ConsoleWrite() for debugging. If the script isn’t to big I often don’t do extra logging but let my ConsoleWrite()’s inside. Sometimes difficulties appear later when @compiled and weeks are gone. So my first thought often is let’s run the script and catch the console outs of my script. So I coded a console reader.
      There are two ways to start the buggy script. First via $cmdline send to the reader and second with drag’n’drop onto the readers gui.
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ColorConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <array.au3> #include <WinAPIProc.au3> #include <GuiEdit.au3> #include <GuiRichEdit.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Global $data = "" Global $g_aPID = [0] Global $g_bFreeze = False Global $g_iZaehler = 0 Global $g_hGUI = GUICreate("Console: StdoutRead" , 800, 800, -1, -1, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit") Global $text = GUICtrlCreateEdit("",10,30,780,760, $ES_AUTOVSCROLL + $WS_VSCROLL + $ES_READONLY + $ES_NOHIDESEL) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED); + $GUI_FOCUS) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, -1, -1, "Lucida Console") GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBORDERS) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_DROPPED, "_Dropped") _GUICtrlEdit_SetLimitText($text, 8388608) ; a filesize about 1mb Global $g_LaZeilen = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Zeilen: " & StringFormat("% 5d", $g_iZaehler), 680, 10, 100, 9, $SS_LEFTNOWORDWRAP, $WS_EX_LAYERED) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, -1, -1, "Lucida Console") GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKRIGHT + $GUI_DOCKTOP + $GUI_DOCKSIZE) Global $g_hCbFreeze = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("&Freeze", 13, 5, 90) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, -1, -1, "Lucida Console") GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKALL) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($g_hCbFreeze, "_Freeze") Global $g_hBuCopy = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Copy All", 125, 5, 70, 20) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, -1, -1, "Lucida Console") GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKALL) GUICtrlSetOnEvent($g_hBuCopy, "_Copy") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then _ViaCmdline() _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($text, $CmdLine[1] & @CRLF) EndIf Global $sText = StringFormat("% 5d", $g_iZaehler) & @TAB _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($text, $sText) Local $nextline While 1 If $g_aPID[0] > 0 Then $nextline = _ConsoleReadLine() $nextline = StringReplace($nextline, @CRLF, @CRLF & StringFormat("% 5d", $g_iZaehler) & @TAB) $sText = $nextline If $g_bFreeze = False Then _GUICtrlEdit_AppendText($text, $sText) EndIf GUICtrlSetData($g_LaZeilen, "Zeilen: " & StringFormat("% 5d", $g_iZaehler)) EndIf _ProcessExist() WEnd #region - Funcs Func _ConsoleReadLine() Local $Result,$crPos While True _ProcessExist() For $i = 1 To $g_aPID[0] $data &= StdoutRead($g_aPID[$i]) If @error Then ExitLoop Next $crPos = StringInStr($data, @CRLF) If $crPos Then $Result = StringLeft($data, $crPos) & @CRLF $data = StringRight($data, StringLen($data) - $crPos) $g_iZaehler += 1 Return $Result EndIf WEnd Return SetError(1, 1, $data) EndFunc Func _Dropped() Local $hPID = Run(@GUI_DragFile, "", Default, $STDERR_MERGED) ConsoleWrite("DROP: " & $hPID & " " & @GUI_DragFile & @CRLF) _ArrayAdd($g_aPID, $hPID) $g_aPID[0] = UBound($g_aPID) - 1 EndFunc Func _ViaCmdline() Local $hPID = Run($CmdLine[1], "", Default, $STDERR_MERGED) ConsoleWrite("CMDLINE: " & $hPID & " " & $CmdLine[1] & @CRLF) _ArrayAdd($g_aPID, $hPID) $g_aPID[0] = UBound($g_aPID) - 1 EndFunc Func _Freeze() $g_bFreeze = Not $g_bFreeze ConsoleWrite("FREEZE: " & $g_bFreeze & @CRLF) GUICtrlSetState($text, $GUI_FOCUS) EndFunc Func _Copy() ConsoleWrite("COPY" & @CRLF) ClipPut(GUICtrlRead($text)) EndFunc Func _ProcessExist() For $i = $g_aPID[0] To 1 Step - 1 If Not ProcessExists($g_aPID[$i]) Then ConsoleWrite("GONE: " & $g_aPID[$i] & @CRLF) _ArrayDelete($g_aPID, $i) $g_aPID[0] = UBound($g_aPID) - 1 EndIf Next EndFunc Func _Exit() If $CmdLine[0] = 0 Then ; if reader is started by $cmdline then no script will exit but reader For $i = 1 To $g_aPID[0] ConsoleWrite("KILL: " & $g_aPID[$i] & " " & _WinAPI_GetProcessFileName($g_aPID[$i]) & @CRLF) ProcessClose($g_aPID[$i]) Next EndIf ConsoleWrite("EXIT" & @CRLF) Exit EndFunc #endregion Funcs Maybe someone will find it useful too. 
      One last remark. If only one script is given via $cmdline to the reader no scripts will exit if consolereader exits. But otherwise all scripts dropped onto the readers gui will exit too. This is by design. If you want to change this do it inside func _exit().
      Regards, Conrad 
      P.S. Possibly some #includes are not necessary anymore but have been while scripting.
