Feature request for _ArrayDisplay()

16 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have the following Feature request -

It will be very useful if the GUI of _ArrayDisplay will also show from what line number in the script the _ArrayDisplay function was called.

this option will be enabled by default if the script is not compiled.

I offer this feature also for any debugging function.

for me it will be useful..

gil900,

You can already do this by adding the @ScriptLineNumber macro to the title of the dialog: ;)

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[3] = [1, 2, 3]

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Called from Line: " & @ScriptLineNumber, Default, 8)

Thank you.
I did not know about this macro.

This is a great tip and I will use it.

Anyway it would be more convenient if it will built into the function so I will not have to write this macro manually

gil900,

That is not going to happen - there is already enough going on in that UDF. ;)

Maybe it can be done it in a different and much easier way - with the auto-complete in SciTE or some macro in SciTE..

gil900,

All you need to do is add the macro to the title parameter - and SciTE already auto-completes the macro name when you start typing it. How lazy do you want to be? :whistle:

I want to do that when the I type "ard" and then space then SciTE will auto-complete to:

_ArrayDisplay(, "Called from Line: " & @ScriptLineNumber)

And I suggest that it will be included in the next SciTE versions.

 

It's like what happens when I type "cw" and space. it auto-complete to:

ConsoleWrite( & @CRLF)

So it should be no problem to do it for _ArrayDisplay

gil900,

Open SciTEConfig and select "Abbrev manager" from the "Other Tools" tab - then you can add the abbreviation for yourself. ;)

Thanks but it does not work.

When I write "ard" then the editor does not recognize it.

gil900,

It does work - I have loads of personalised abbreviations that I use all the time. Did you look at the ScITE Help file page for the Abbrev manager to make sure you added the abbreviation correctly? Does it show up in the "C:UsersUser_NameAppDataLocalAutoIt v3SciTEau3UserAbbrev.properties" file?

So, because you find it useful it should be that way for everyone?? Melba has given you a perfectly reasonable workaround, which I'm still not understanding why you can't be bothered to use. Not everyone would see benefit from ArrayDisplay defaulting to the line number - I, for one, know what my script is doing well enough that I have never had to use that particular bit of hack.

t will be very useful if the GUI of _ArrayDisplay will also show from what line number in the script the _ArrayDisplayfunction was called.

this option will be enabled by default if the script is not compiled.

You can EASILY add this yourself by adding @ScriptLineNumber to the Title parameter for _ArrayDisplay.
