Is there a snippet manger for Autoit?

7 posts in this topic

Hi

Is anyone aware of some form of snippet manager for Autoit that works in a similar way to some of the Visual Studio Snippet Managers. Anything that I could right click and select from a list of prepared Functions and just insert into my scripts..

 

Thanks

Thank you.

Has anyone been able to add a right click context menu within autoit SciTE editor ? I'm considering implementing something like this but within the editor right click functions. I have already been able to add this to the tools menu but I'm curious whether this can be taken further..

 

Thanks again

Add to your SciTEUser.properties file a line like this.

 

user.context.menu=||Add as Snippet|1116|

That creates a context menu item that reads Add as Snippet, and that item is linked to command #16.

Here's how an actual right click menu is set up in my installation for commands I've created in SciTE.

 

user.context.menu=||Add as Snippet|1116|Google Selected|1140|Google Autoit Site|1141|Sort Lines|1145|

# 40 google Selected
command.40.*="http://www.google.com/search?q=$(CurrentSelection)"
command.subsystem.40.*=2
command.quiet.40.*=1
# 41 google Selected on the AutoIt forums
command.41.*="https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awww.autoitscript.com%2Fforum+$(CurrentSelection)"
command.subsystem.41.*=2
command.quiet.41.*=1

These two commands, #s 40 and 41, are linked to the context menu items so that when selected will run the command. Command #45 is linked to a command that runs a lua script saved in PersonalTools.lua by this command.

 

# 45 Sort Lines
command.name.45.*=Sort Lines
command.45.*=sort_text
command.subsystem.45.*=3

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.

That's exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

Could you elaborate on your implemented lua script. What do you use it for,? How useful is it just out of curiousity.

 

And one more thing.... Where are you added snippets coming from (what is the command  command #16. linked to)

I had that in my context menu list already, not sure if it was connected to a function previously but I'd have to guess it was probably tied to something that comes with Scite4AutoIt3 that I don't use.

The lua script I use is for sorting lines, it's not used much in my scripts, but comes in handy when dealing with a text file with a list of something that I want to have in an ordered list. You highlight the text to sort, right click it, and select Sort Lines and it runs this lua script.
 

function sort_text()
  local sel = editor:GetSelText()
  if #sel == 0 then return end
  local eol = string.match(sel, "\n$")
  local buf = lines(sel)
  --table.foreach(buf, print) --used for debugging
  table.sort(buf)
  local out = table.concat(buf, "\n")
  if eol then out = out.."\n" end
  editor:ReplaceSel(out)
end

This function is in my PersonalTools.lua file.

That is likely a link to the old snippet utility Gary wrote but is removed due to lack of maintenance. #16 is now used for an SVN function.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a hotkey program and I know exactly how to do it but it will be hard coded and the user won't be able to edit it.
      HotKeySet("{ESC}", "HotKeyPressed") HotKeySet("^!d", "HotKeyPressed") HotKeySet("^+x", "HotKeyPressed") While 1 Sleep(500) WEnd Func HotKeyPressed() Switch @HotKeyPressed Case "{ESC}" Exit Case "^!d" ShellExecute("D:\Docs") Case "^+x" ShellExecute("D:\Docs\My Portables\Burner\AnyBurn\AnyBurn.exe") EndSwitch EndFunc I want the program to read a file that has hotkeys on odd lines and paths on even lines but I don't see how the program will load into itself.
      Is it even possible?
      Thanks.

      Hi.
      I like to use au3 abbreviations. 'mb2' is often used. But I don't remember them very long. So I wanted to have a little tool looking for it.
      This tool is embedded as a command inside SciTE.
      First the tool itself:
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Comment=Looks for an au3-abbreviation of a word in Clipboard or $CmdLine. #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Description=Looks for an au3-abbreviation of a word in Clipboard or $CmdLine. #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=1.0.0.0 #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_LegalCopyright=Simpel #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Language=1031 #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <File.au3> Global $Ini = @ScriptDir & "\au3abbrev.ini" Global $au3abbrev = "PUT IN HERE THE PATH TO\au3abbrev.properties" ; mine is at …\AutoIt3\SciTE\au3abbrev.properties Global $aGetEntries Global $sSearch, $sOutput FileCopy($au3abbrev, $Ini, 1) ; make an ini from the properties file _FileWriteToLine($Ini, 1, "[Dictionary]") ; inserting '[Dictionary]' at first line, to make ini searchable #Region - Look for the right searchstring If StringLeft($CmdLineRaw, 13) = "/ErrorStdOut " Then ; if not compiled but run with F5 to test $sSearch = ClipGet() ElseIf $CmdLineRaw <> "" Then $sSearch = $CmdLineRaw ElseIf ClipGet() <> "" Then $sSearch = ClipGet() Else MsgBox(0, 'Fehler', "Kein Wort zum Suchen gefunden.") ; error Exit EndIf #EndRegion _GetDefinition() $sSearch = _Clean($sSearch) $sOutput = _Search($sSearch) MsgBox(0, 'au3abbrev.properties', "Ergebnisse für '" & $sSearch & "':" & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sOutput) Exit #Region - Functions Func _GetDefinition() If FileExists($Ini) Then $aGetEntries = IniReadSection($Ini, "Dictionary") If @error Then MsgBox(0, 'Fehler', "Keine Sektion [Dictionary] gefunden.") ; if inserting of "[Dictionary]" failed Exit EndIf EndIf EndFunc Func _Search($sInput) Local $iCounter = 1 Local $sfOutput For $i = 1 To $aGetEntries[0][0] If StringInStr($aGetEntries[$i][1], $sInput) Then ; something is found $sfOutput = $sfOutput & _Clean($aGetEntries[$i][0]) & @TAB & _Clean($aGetEntries[$i][1]) & @CRLF & @CRLF $iCounter = $iCounter + 1 EndIf Next If $sfOutput = "" Then $sfOutput = "KEINE ÜBEREINSTIMMUNG" ; no matches found EndIf Return $sfOutput EndFunc Func _Clean($sData) $sData = StringReplace($sData, "|", "") ; erases "|" because it causes the array to jump to the next entry $sData = StringReplace($sData, '"', "") ; erases '"' because it sometimes causes the array to jump to the next entry Return $sData EndFunc #EndRegion And now the part at SciTEUser:
      # 41 LookAU3Abbrev command.41.*="H:\_Conrad lokal\Downloads\AutoIt3\_COX\AU3-Abkuerzung.exe" "$(CurrentSelection)" command.name.41.*=Look Abbrev command.shortcut.41.*=Ctrl+Shift+Alt+A command.save.before.41.$(au3)=2 So I mark a regular AutoIt command inside SciTE (with double clicking) and press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+A. I will get a messagebox as answer what abbreviations will contain my sended command. But be careful, not all of these listed abbreviations will expand with space while coding. Abbreviations you want to use have the be declared inside the au3abbrev.keyword.properties(?)
      Any suggestions?
      Regards, Conrad

      This Epubmanager is good for short loadingtime and Detailed Information about the Books. With the manager it comes an full-reader with readout-function (TTS), using installed voices.
      This Program is used to Manage e-books/epubs. You can import directorys. A lot of information is read from the epub and saved in a database.
      Most important is the speed of loading books, because the management should be used for lots of epubs.
      All chargings are displayed. There is also an Sql-Console, if you want to edit a lot of entry, otherwise you can do a rightclick and edit every Element in another window.
      Also there is a Epub-Reader to read the epubs just with a doubleclick at any entry.

      Information saved in the database (if they can be read in the epub):
      identifier, author, description, title, genre, creationdate, path, speach
      Information about Epub-Reader:
      The Epub-Reader opens Epubs and they can be read chapter by chapter.
      At the left side there is a Listbox, where you can select the chapters
      There is also a read out function, reading your epub. (You can change Voice and Audiooutput, but you need to have installed a TTS-Speach).
      Also you can edit the font-size.
