If the string is longer, then you need to do horizontal scrolling

Hmm. Do you mean this for word wrap? I'm sorry I did not quite understand what you meant :sweating:

Maybe for you it will be interesting to

Thank you for sharing this with me, I will say very nice AZJIO! :)

I think the only thing that you haven't done was the word wrap, which you can easily take from mine. ;)

EDIT: And the printing support

Thanks for the cool update I really like this editor and I started to use it instead of Notepad Keep up the good work.

Also seems everyone else has give you ideas If you do not mind I like to also add some.

1. Auto Indent text

2. Inset file this be cool in the edit menu

3. You got word count how about Line Count.

4. Goto options.

5. Options in edit menu to uppercase lowercase, invert case.

6. How about a tools menu, that can use something like INI files to be able to allow uses to add compilers to compile there code.

Here an example of the INI  say for a plug in like C#

[Plugin]

Caption=C# Compiler

CommandLine=<Path To Compiler>

ShowStdResults=1

 

 
 
anyway I hope I give you some ideas.

word wrap? not "word wrap" = +$WS_HSCROLL

I've been trying to figure out how to do it without restarting

 

Using the "Tab" I add indent. Select multiple rows and check the operation of these items

DreamVB

uppercase lowercase

For these operations, I use an external application that works with any object (TextCorrection). Edited by AZJIO

Not sure what you mean.  :geek:  I do have Word Wrap in my script, and it does work correctly with horizontal scrolling.

You'll have to actually remake the Edit Control with hscroll style and when you turn it off you'll need to remake it again.

WinXP.

$aRect = _GUICtrlMenu_GetMenuBarInfo($hGui, 0, 1) ; Specifies the height of the menu to calculate the height of the Edit

Font size is different on other computers. If the menu does not fit, it is moved to the second line.

I have not tested it with any file of that magnitude, so I cannot give a definitive answer. :(

I will try to look around for a file of a large size and test it, but if you would like to do the same I would appreciate it greatly. :D

Okay, I tested this on a WinXP with SP 3 and it works perfectly, so I'm not sure how you are having trouble switching. Are you sure you are going into Format -> Word Wrap?

Here is a screenshot of the test that worked:

how good can it handle large files of > 100 gigabyte?

 

I just tested the time it took for the windows notepad to open a 159mb file and my AuPad as well.

Notepad took 5 minutes and 58 seconds to open it, and it came up with this:

Had word wrap on. Notepad took 47 seconds to open it, but still came up with the incorrect characters as seen in the screenshot below:

post-86910-0-70302200-1411401179_thumb.p

AuPad tried to open the same file and took 32 seconds and came up with the text in its entirety:

post-86910-0-84111500-1411401361_thumb.p

I'm pretty sure it is safe to say AuPad handled this task better. :)

      Hello,
      Is there any way to check for validity of a pointer to a DllStruct ?
      In the above code, a DllStruct is created from an invalid pointer. How to prevent from doing this ?
      local $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i") DllStructSetData($tStruct, "i", 123) local $pStruct = DllStructGetPtr($tStruct) $tStruct = 0 ; destroy DllStruct ==> $pStruct becomes invalid ; how to check here for validity of $pStruct and prevent from doing the following ? $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i", $pStruct) ; create DllStruct from invalid pointer... MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, @error) ; displays '0' : invalid pointer is not detected by DllStructCreate() MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, IsDllStruct($tStruct)) ; displays '1' : tStruct is assumed as a valid DllStruct object, which is not Thanks for help

      I am trying to make a simple installer script for my understanding.  I would just like to understand how to deal with multiple possible windows. In the case of installing VLC, I might get a window saying VLC is already installed. I have also tried a switch with no luck.  I would just like to understand some methods for dealing with the possible existence of unexpected windows. 
       
      ;INSTALL VLC VIEWER
      Run(@ScriptDir & '\bin\VLCViewer_2.2.4_3.EXE')
      AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 0)
      sleep(4000)
      WinWait("VLC Viewer 2.2.4")

           ; this window will pop up if vlc is already installed
          If WinExists( "VLC Viewer 2.2.4", "VLC 2.2.4 Already Installed") Then
                ConsoleWrite ("already installed")
                WinActivate ('VLC Viewer 2.2.4','Already Installed')
                MouseClick ('primary', 93, 83, 1, 0)
                
          EndIf
       
            ; this window will pop up if installer finishes sucessfully
           If WinExists( "VLC Viewer 2.2.4", "VLC Viewer 2.2.4 Installed") Then 
                ConsoleWrite ("already installed")
                WinActivate ('VLC Viewer 2.2.4','VlC Installed')
                MouseClick ('primary', 93, 83, 1, 0)
         EndIf
