Tidy Change/Update Function Info?

Recommended Posts

nitekram

How would I go about adding the following to every function, after calling Tidy? Is it a hard process?

I would want it to fill in:

  • Name of the function
  • Parameters Variable Names from the function, and put them in place - adding more parameter spaces as needed
  • Fill in the created date
; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name ..........: $NameOfFunction
; Description ...: 
; Syntax ........: 
; Parameters ....: $Param_1
;                  $Param_2
;                  $Param_3
; Return values .: 
; Author ........: 
; Created .......:
; Modified ......:
; Remarks .......:
; Related .......:
; Link ..........: 
; Example .......: 
; ===============================================================================================================================

; Also, was wondering, how hard it would be to create another tool, as I seem to always want to see the values being sent to a function, maybe a HotKey (script) that can put a

MessageBox box/ConsoleWrite at the top off all the functions (or at least the one high lighted? With the name of the function as title, and each parameter/variable in the header, put its name and value on separate lines.

 

EDIT

Or the syntax of a UDF - do not remember where that is, but will see if I can find it.

 

EDIT 2

Found this, I assume it should be added, so when I find it, I guess I will

Position the cursor on a Func line and press Ctrl+Alt+H. This will insert an UDF header.

WOW,...all this time and I never knew that lol

And just so I feel stupid, I went ahead and looked under tools, and there it was.

And I see, my other request is listed there too...see I am not too far off my rocker.

Ctrl+Shift+D = debug, messagebox

Alt+D = debug, console

 

EDIT

I get this for messagebox

MsgBox(262144, 'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber, 'Selection:' & @CRLF & 'Func' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'Return:' & @CRLF & Func)

Are you supposed to enter Function name?

Everyday I learn something new is a good/great day.

I updated my post, not sure what is supposed to be the fix for the error I get

MsgBox(262144, 'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber, 'Selection:' & @CRLF & 'Func' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'Return:' & @CRLF & Func)

error: syntax error on the last part Func

 

EDIT

And I still like my idea of getting the parameters broken out into the message box or console

 

EDIT2

And if I highlight the function, I get this, with cannot be an expression

MsgBox(262144, 'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber, 'Selection:' & @CRLF & 'Func CtrlMove(ByRef $g_aCtrls, $iCtrl, $g_hGUI)' & @CRLF & @CRLF & 'Return:' & @CRLF & Func CtrlMove(ByRef $g_aCtrls, $iCtrl, $g_hGUI)) ;### Debug MSGBOX

You are supposed to put your caret on a variable or actual function and then press Alt+D

      7/8/2018: Uploaded a new SciTe4AutoIt3.exe v18.708.1148.0 installer.
      It has been over a year since the last update of the full SciTE4AutoIt3 installer whch mainly had to do with the fact that Neil was moving toward v4 of SciTE and I wanted to wait for a stable version.
      Any help with testing this version before general release is appreciated.
      Also any feedback is welcome in caseI missed something or suggestions for improvement before releasing.
      ==> SciTE4AutoIt3 v18.708.1148.0
      Enjoy,
      Jos

      Addition/Changes/Fixes in the current installer:
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8-7-2018 *** Merged the SciTE v 4.1.0 by Neil Hodgson with our own version of SciTE. (Jos)     This is a major change from the previous version so ensure you update all files including LUA or else you will get errors!     - SciLexer au3: Fixed issues with nested CommentBlocks not always showing the correct color.     - SciLexer au3: Change any line starting with # and no recognised keyword to be shown with the Pre-Processor in stead of default.     - Changed Shortcut for AU3INFO to Ctrl+Shift+F6.     - Moved the session restore logic for (save.session.advanced=1)into SciTE in stead of LoadSession.lua as that was clearing the recent files list of the last session       when opening a file by double cliking it. This is fixed with this change.       Default remains 0 so when a file is double clicked the last session isn't restored unless you add this to SciTEuser.properties:       "save.session.advanced=1"     - updated Tools.lua replacing [s%] with [ /t] to avoid empty lines being stripped by those functions. (Thanks Enyby) *** Updated AutoIt3Wrapper v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 Added /autoit3dir to au3stripper commandline, when provided to AutoIt3Wrapper., to ensure the included files are for the correct AutoIt3 directory     - 17.224.935.2 Added directives:          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_CompanyName=          ;Company field          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_LegalTrademarks=      ;Trademark field     - 17.224.935.5 Fixed Versioning when files contain backets ->  ()     - 17.224.935.6 Added support for :          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3stripper_Stop_OnError=        ;(Y/N) Continue/Stop on Warnings.(Default=N)     - 17.224.935.7 added INI support for:           [Other]            Au3Stripper_Stop_OnError=n     - 17.224.935.10 Minor changes in console messages     - 17.224.935.11 Modifications from JPM:         - add #AutpIt3Wrapper_Res_Cursor_Add         - "clean" a little bit AutoIt3Wrapper.au3 *** Updated Au3Stripper v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 Fixed crash when an include file contains longer record than 4096 characters.     - 17.224.935.2 Changed /rsln to replace @ScriptLineNumber in the Master script with "XXX/YYY". XXX is the master script linenumber, YYY is the Merged script linenumber.     - 17.224.935.3 Fixed issue detecting #cs #ce when a space was missing after the directive.     - 17.224.935.4 Changed Close/Open logic for Tracelog to (hopefully) avoid the hardcrash.     - 17.224.935.5 improved speed avoiding rereading include files to determine the max rec len.     - 17.224.935.6 improved speed by re-coding the check for long records.     - 17.224.935.7 Made sure the returncode is the highest from all iterations in stead of the last iteration.     - 17.224.935.8 fix for reported bug: https://www.autoitscript.com/trac/autoit/ticket/3623#comment:4     - 17.224.935.9 added support for #autoit3wrapper_autoit3dir     - 17.224.935.10 Fixed support for #autoit3wrapper_autoit3dir when followed by linecomment                     Stop processing when include file isn't found.     - 18.624.1847.1 strip the leading and trailing double quotes from the autoit3dir directive to avoid an error when they are specified.     - 18.624.1847.2 Fixed Hardcrash in the Include logic     - 18.624.1847.3 Fixed Hardcrash in Func stripping logic by enlarging the base table size     - 18.702.1556.1 Fixed regression bug with the Translate option.     - 18.703.1808.2 Fixed regression bug with the Stripping FUNC logic for the first found FUNC. *** Updated SciTEConfig v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 No updates *** Updated Tidy v18.708.1148.0 (Jos)     - 17.224.935.1 Added option  to copy comments from #CS to #CE. Default is to copy the comments.                    Added Tidy Parameters:  /Skip_CE_Comment or /scec will skip this copy action                    Added INI option:                      * * *  Add comment to #CE/#CommentEnd and make it the same as the #CS/CommentStart Comments.                      ce_comment=1     - 17.224.935.2 Fix issue with Copy comments on comment start - end     - 17.224.935.4 Fix another issue with Copy comments on comment start - end -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ==> ScitillaHistory page containing all SciTE-Scintilla updates.

      I got a question:  i am trying to run different functions based upon what i select in these radio buttons.(code below)
      it needs to check server 1. then run function 1 or function 2 after what i selected in the checkbox.
      once that function is done it moves to the next one, until it has been trough all 5 
       
      iv'e tried using while loops with different while $i equals to something but then i manualy need to go in and edit the script every time.

      Maybe I am trying this all wrong, but hope someone can help. I have a GUI and want to click a button which will start a function to get a folder location. Then I need to pass that location to a variable to use outside the function. Here is a sample of the code;It prompts to choose a file location and the message box displays the choice but that is all inside the function. I need to pass the path selected outside the function. OR need a different way of doing this, maybe my approach is wrong.
      $Label_Drive=GUICtrlCreateLabel("Use the select button and choose where profiles will be stored.", 15, 120, 240, 25)
      $BTN_Set_BKP_Path = GUICtrlCreateButton("Select Location", 250, 120, 90, 30) ;left,top,width,heigth
      GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BTN_Set_BKP_Path, "Location")
       
      Func Location()
      $BKP_Path = FileSelectFolder("Select a folder where profiles will be stored.", "c:\")
      MsgBox(0,"Select Path", "You set the path as " & $BKP_Path)
      EndFunc
       
      $Label_BKP_Path=GUICtrlCreateLabel("Current path is " & $BKP_Path & ".", 15, 150, 300, 25)

      Hello,
       
      Is there a way to change the backup pattern for Tidy ?
      Actually it goes by <Myfile>.au3 becomes <MyFile>_old<x>.au3.
      I would like it to be <Myfile>.au3 becomes <MyFile> v<x>.au3.
      Thanks.

      As with a lot of programming, the less manual repetition done to achieve the same outcome...the better.
      I package programs for network deployment at the organization I work for. Sometimes these applications require verbose messaging to the user, and sometimes by special request we have to turn that off and deploy silently.
      The way I currently handle these 2 scenarios is this.
      I have a function that builds the splashwin display screen to variable size depending on message length, and displays the desired message to the end user.
      Then at each point throughout my script as I need to make the user aware of what is currently happening, I inject a splashwin function call with the unique message pertaining to that specific event. ie. "Installing Microsoft Office, please wait..."
      In effort to build a more universal script to handle any type of request submitted. I've incorporated a switch command of '/silent'
      If cmdlineraw detects the usage of that switch when the script is triggered it sets a variable flag, ie. $silent = "on"
      Then at every splashwin call I make, I'm prefixing it with an IF statement that checks for the flag, and then does NOT display the message if that flag is "on". Or does display it if its not. Has worked for me just fine. But while I grow my programming skills and look for more streamlined ways of handling areas I find myself creating repetition. I'm curious if I can relocate that flag check. Taking it out of every single splashwin call, and injecting it into the function itself.
      Example of how I currently display or hide the splashwin based on command line...
      If StringInStr($cmdlineraw, "/silent", 0) Then
          $SilentSwitch = "ON"
      EndIf
      If $SilentSwitch = "OFF" Then SplashWin($Uninstalling & $ProductInfo[1][0])
      Some scripts have dozens of those splashwin calls littered throughout, so Is this the best approach I can take already? Or as stated earlier, can I pull the IF statement away from the splashwin call. And left the function as a whole either activate or deactivate as a result of the command line check.
