very propably this has been asked before, well, I miss the thread(s) ...
Is there a command line switch to tell the SciTE setup EXE to install silently ("/S") *AND* to end up with "edit" (instead of "run") as system wide default action for *.au3 files?
As it can be done with the config tool:
I use a monospace font for editing AutoIt scripts in SciTE (currently, CourierNew 9pt). Regardless of what font size I set in the configuration, when I start SciTE to resume editing the script text is one size smaller than I specified. When I type Ctrl+<numpad-slash> the text changes to the desired size. The same is true of the output pane, and I have to reset the size for both areas every time I start SciTE.
IIRC, I've made few other changes to the configuration (e.g., changed the search highlight color and disabled Tidy), so this behavior seems odd. About SciTE says it's version 3.6.0 (Aug. 4, 2015).
Any idea how to fix this?
As they're opinion-based to some degree; how are AutoIt's best practices decided and do suggestions get considered?
Some suggestions :
For...To...Step...Next -loop variable-naming like $iN ($i1, $i2, etc.) : conforms to recommended naming convention, identifies level (albeit inverted to ExitLoop and ContinueLoop's convention) and enables SciTE selection-highlighting (requires minimum of 3 characters). Minimize logic in global scope, separate data & settings from logic, use of vertical space, project organization (folder structure, resource- and include file management). Example (loop variable-naming, minimizing logic in global scope and separation of settings from logic) :
#include <Array.au3> Global Enum $RANDOM_RETURNFLOAT, _ $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER Global Enum $EXITCODE_NONE Global Const $g_sChar0 = '-' Global Const $g_sChar1 = '+' Global Const $g_iAmountX = 10 Global Const $g_iAmountY = $g_iAmountX Main() Func Main() Local $aArray[$g_iAmountY][$g_iAmountX] For $i1 = 0 To $g_iAmountY - 1 For $i2 = 0 To $g_iAmountX - 1 $aArray[$i1][$i2] = Random(0, 1, $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER) ? $g_sChar1 : $g_sChar0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Exit $EXITCODE_NONE EndFunc Example (project organization) :
+ project_folder + bak [backup files] + bin [distributed binaries and dependencies] + inc [non-standard include files] + res [resource files (icons, file+install files, etc.)] + usr [configuration files, databases, etc.] - script.au3 - script.exe Example (use of vertical space) :
Func _DigitalRoot($iNum) Local $sNum = '' Local $aNum While $iNum > 9 $sNum = String($iNum) $aNum = StringSplit($sNum, '') $iNum = 0 For $i1 = 1 To $aNum $iNum += Int($aNum[$i1]) Next WEnd Return $iNum EndFunc
Is it possible to open file(s) in scite in read only mode ?
If so, How ?
I installed AutoIt to my computer 3 days ago...and have invested the last 3 days learning how to use it.
As learned in the tutorials, whenever opening I new file in Scite editor I'd immediatley save the file
I left the Scite Editor open for the past 3 consecutive days on my laptop
Today I closed Autoit for the first time, restarted my computer, and opened up the Scite Editor
Now whenever I try to save a file I am prevented from doing so because I apparently don't have permission!?
And whenever I try to run any of the programs I've created over the past 3 days now I keep getting annoying popup notifications before I run them
To go around the issue, I copied a program originally saved in the AUtoIt folder to another folder (since I was barred from saving it in it's original AutoIt location)
NOw when I run the code the mouse coordiantes are all off
and I still get that pesky notification whenever I try to run a program
Anyone have any clue why I'm going through this BS?
1. I checked my User settings and YES I am the administrator on this cpu
2. I tried to de-select the "read only" attribute for the AutoIt folder (everytime after doing this successfully the folder immediately and automatically reverts back to "read only")
Any help would be MOST appreciated. I've attached screen shots of the annoying bus I keep getting
