SciteConfig, Wrapper implementation problems

Recommended Posts

SorryButImaNewbie

Hello!

I want to start using UDFs not originaly included in autoit. I found this wiki page to help me (I couldn't add the link, when i tried I have been redirected to GH&S page link: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Adding_UDFs_to_AutoIt_and_SciTE )

I'm a complet layman here, and I want to add SciteConfig and Wrapper to my tools. I don't have the rights to even make a folder in C where my Autoit is. I will need to tell the Service Desk guy the steps he needs to do so I would be able to use said UDFs. Can someone please explain a step by step guide how to implement it?

All that I understand from the Wiki that it is suggested that I should put them in to a different folder, so to not to lose them when i upgrade. Other then that how do I "Then tell AutoIt about this folder." ?  What is CallTips and AutoComplete? (I guess they are the Scite's text editors "helpers" if thats make any sense in english)

So what should I tell the Service Desk guy where should I put these applications (and the associated Script file to Config and text file to Wrapper?) and how can I "integrate" them to my SciTe?

Thank you Wise Masters of AutoIt!!

SciTEConfig & Autoit3Wrapper are automatically installed when you install the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package - there is no need to install them separately as they are fully integrated within the modified editor itself and you access them via the SciTE <Tools> menu. The tutorial to which you linked shows how to install the UDFs written by other members (such as the ones in my sig) so that they are as easily usable as the standard ones included with AutoIt - these UDFs are not integrated within SciTE in the same manner and so need to be to be added in a separate folder as the Wiki explains.

All clear?

Thank you, but not exactly

My <Tools> menu only consists of : Compile, Build, Go, SyntaxCheck Prod, Next/Previous Message, Clear out Put, Switch Pane. Shouldn't there be more? (I already confirmed I think that I have the full version thanks to master Jos)

Also I still don't get where should I put the extra folder for an UDF and how to "tell autoit about it"

You need to have an .au3 file open in SciTE for the additional menu items to become visible.

As to the personal UDF folder, place it anywhere on your system - it does not have to be within the AutoIt folder structure, and it is in fact recommended that it is not. Once you have created the folder, use SciTEConfig to tell AutoIt that it exists - although if the system is really locked down you may have to get your Service Desk man to modify the registry as explained in the tutorial.  Then the UDFs that you download into that folder are as accessible as the standard set.

​.au3 is the "Autoit v3 Script" file right? If it is I have 3 open, if not then look at my user name (according to the properties it is .au3)

SorryButImaNewbie,

Yes. If you have 3 of them open and you still get no additional items in the <Tools> menu then I question whether you have the full SciTE4 AutoIt3 package installed. Use the <Options - Open au3.properties> option and post the first few lines of the file - I get:

I... I dont have that Option :) (sorry :( )

I tried to make a pic about my Options, but I can't upload .PNG

I have the following choices (only listing the Open something options): Open Local Options file, Open Directory Options File (greyed out), Open User Options File, Open Global Options File, Open Abbrevations File, Open au3abbrev.properties and Open au3UserAbbrev.properties

The nearest to what you told me is  Open au3abbrev.properties it reads as this

# ' Global abbreviations file for SciTE (abbrev.properties) generated: 15.05.2008 '
# ' Contains a list of entries of the form abbreviation=expansion '
# ' Type the abbreviation and press Spacebar to insert the expansion '
# ' "|" marks the position the caret will be after expansion. '
# ' "\n" marks a carriage return. "\t" marks a Tab. '

Sorry, I know this is a mess, can't wait to leave it behind and start it from scratch at home (with my multiple jobs I dont have the strength to start my toolbox at my own PC yet, but can't wait for it)

SorryButImaNewbie,

I am becoming convinced that you do not have the full package installed despite you saying that is the case. I will point Jos here so he can take over.

For starters: Open an AU3 simple script and hit F5(Run) and cut&Paste all console output into your reply here so I can see what is going on. :)

Hello Master Jos, and good morning.

I created a fresh au3 script on my desktop and hit f5, the console output is: 

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "C:\Users\BalazsGe\Desktop\Új AutoIt v3 Script.au3"    
>Exit code: 0    Time: 0.5161

This tell me you do not have a proper installed SciTE4AutoIt3 full installer as it runs AutoIt3.exe in stead of AutoIt3wrapper.

      Good morning everyone

      I was playing a little bit with "Screen Capture" UDF, and I was trying to make a "Window" capture, but, since I made a GUI which through I fire the event "Capture", my GUI is captured as well, and I don't want to
      This is the line of code that makes the capture:
       
      _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd($strScreenCaptureFileName, $objActiveWindow, 0, 0, -1, -1, False) And these are the lines of code which select the "active" window:
       
      Local $objCurrentWindow = 9999 If _IsPressed("01") Then $objCurrentWindow = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") If $objCurrentWindow <> $objMyGUI Then $objActiveWindow = $objCurrentWindow EndIf EndIf Sorry If I made stupid mistakes
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.

      Greetings to the AutoIt community.
      I hope that nobody considers my question insulting but I searched 'SciTEConfig.exe' and I did not find it anywhere;
      although it is mentioned, it seems like a myth, I can not see if it exists.
      On the other hand, I have downloaded the compressed archive (from ... autoit-script-editor/downloads) 'SciTEConfig_Source.zip'
      Does not contain any .exe either but does have a 'SciteConfig.au3' which, I suppose, has replaced the .exe because on the internet I only find it as malware.
      My problem is: My applications to unzip .zip archives, they can see what files SciTEConfig_Source.zip have but they can not unzip it: 'Unknown method' says WinRar.
          I have downloaded it again, in case it had been damaged but the result is always the same.

      My question is: Is the archive 'SciTEConfig_Source.zip' damaged or does it have any other method of compression?
      I need it to learn how to configure SciTE (lite).
      Thankful to the developers of AutoIt and to the community.
      Regards
