does SciTE Script Editor have an auto re-run functionality?

11 posts in this topic

Often when i try to run a script hitting F5 it doesn't do anything because its still running in the background from the last time I tested it >_< does anyone know if there is a way to auto kill / restart it - I assume not because that could possibly interfere with script functionality so i guess getting used to hitting ctrl + break (to stop a possibly running script) would be the way to go... or even lazier is there a way to rebind scite keyboard shortcuts? would be nice to bind it to f4 then you could just hit both in tandem every time

Just to clarify: What do you want to do:

  1. stop script ?
  2. restart/ReRun   running (not compiled) Script - running from SciTe
  3. restart/ReRun   running (not compiled) Script - running not from SciTe
  4. restart/ReRun   running compiled Script

atm if you hit f5 (run) on the editor (and you previously already hit it without killing the test) nothing will happen - ideally I'd like f5 to turn into a run / rerun button where if you hit it when your previous not compiled test was still running it just restarts it so you can test the new changes // or almost as good be able to remap the ctrl break key to f4 so i can just button mash both of them every time I go to test a script 

for some reason esp with gui apps i'm horrible at testing then alt tab'ing right back into the editor without hitting esc first

If you're really dead-set on the F5 key just put this in each script when testing.

HotKeySet("{F5}", "Quit")
 
Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

When you run it from SciTE, you should see this in the output panel.

--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop

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.

the simplest way to be happy :)

 

Run your script from SciTe4Au3 (I mean Jos version)

and now look in console:

>Running:(3.3.10.2):C:Program Files (x86)AutoIt3autoit3.exe "Z:TOOLsMacroFORUM___FORUM -- z forumXMLTEST_MSXML.au3"    

--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart    or    Ctrl+Break to Stop

+>17:30:25 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:0

 

So 

 

when your previous not compiled test was still running it just restarts it so you can test the new changes

 

the only one what you must to do is :

Ctrl+Shift+Break

EDIT: CTRL+ALT+BREAK

and for other way you can edit:

"c:UsersuserAppDataLocalAutoIt v3SciTEAutoIt3WrapperAutoIt3Wrapper.ini" 

and add:

 

[Other]

SciTE_STOPEXECUTE={F11}
SciTE_RESTART=^{F11}

 

Which will give you a new way to stop or restart running script.

ps.

for the last one you need the newest SciTe4Au3 Beta

F4 stops the current script

F9 toggles script folding (just a bonus for You) :thumbsup:
