Scintilla Editor experiment

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have got a code snippet from Scintilla's website.  The code is for creating a scintilla control in visual basic. I have altered it and did some experiment with it in AutoIt. After some failed attempts, i got succeeded in creating a simple scintilla cotrol in my gui. That experiement raises a lot of questions in my mind. Some of them are i am asking.

1. So we are cretaing scintilla as a child window ?. I thought that it is a control. 

2. No.. not any more. This is my code. I am seeking guidance and advices to learn more about this. Thanks in advance.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>

Local $h__MainGUI = GUICreate("Window", 500, 400, -1, -1)
GUISetState()
Local $h__THisGUI = WinGetHandle($h__MainGUI)
Local Const $SCI_START = 2000
Local Const $SCI_ADDTEXT = $SCI_START + 1
Local Const $SCI_SETSELBACK = $SCI_START + 68

Local $h__sciDLL = _WinAPI_LoadLibrary("E:\2014 Softwares\KE editor\SciLexer.dll")
Local $h__sciWnd = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx($WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "Scintilla", "TEST",BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VISIBLE),0,0,480,380,$h__THisGUI,0)
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_SETSELBACK, 1 )
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_ADDTEXT, 16, "This is Vinod")

While 1
    $hMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $hMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Au3Info can tell you that.

 the dll internally first register an Scintilla class using RegisterClassExW then use RegisterClassExA to  create the window\control.

Yes. And we can treat it as our own control in that GUI. 

Now, i am reading the documentation.

Yes Look:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>
Global Const $__EDITCONSTANT_WM_SETTEXT = 0x000C
Local $h__MainGUI = GUICreate("Window", 500, 400, -1, -1)
GUISetState()
Local $h__THisGUI = WinGetHandle($h__MainGUI)
Local Const $SCI_START = 2000
Local Const $SCI_ADDTEXT = $SCI_START + 1
Local Const $SCI_SETSELBACK = $SCI_START + 68

Local $h__sciDLL = _WinAPI_LoadLibrary("SciLexer.dll")
Local $h__sciWnd = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx($WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, "Scintilla", "TEST",BitOR($WS_CHILD, $WS_VISIBLE),0,0,480,380,$h__THisGUI,0)
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_SETSELBACK, 1 )
_SendMessageA($h__sciWnd, $SCI_ADDTEXT, 16, "This is Vinod")

_GUICtrlEdit_SetText($h__sciWnd,"Hola Mundo. AutoIt Rocks")

While 1
    $hMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $hMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _GUICtrlEdit_SetText($hWnd, $sText)
    If Not IsHWnd($hWnd) Then $hWnd = GUICtrlGetHandle($hWnd)

    _SendMessage($hWnd, $__EDITCONSTANT_WM_SETTEXT, 0, $sText, 0, "wparam", "str")
EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlEdit_SetText

Documentation says that to use WM_NOTIFY message to work with scinitlla control. They gave an example c++ code to do it. But i just check it with an ordianry WM_COMMAND function in GUIRegisterMsg. As if it s an edit control in my gui. It worked, but it gave output twice to me. I don't know why.

@Danyfirex Please tell me about the const $__EDITCONSTANT_WM_SETTEXT. help file says that it is "Msg to send to control (Number). And in the example they used $WM_SYSCOMMAND. I am confused a little.

Show your code :)

It's just for send text to a control https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms632644(v=vs.85).aspx

Pretty sure somebody else has create an editor in AutoIt using Scintilla and posted about it in the forum. Maybe look for that.

Also ISN AutoIt Studio is based on Scintilla.

No no. I mean what it use internally. maybe how to reproduce that using sendmessage. then I will look inside to check that message because I think It should be a predefined message.

That is the same message, but obviously there need to be multiple options in au3.api for it to trigger that version.

      After testing various schemes (themes) in the settings for the newest SciTE editor (v. 4.1.2), I discovered that I wasn't able to fully reset it back to its original colors (See snapshot). Specifically, after applying the "__SciTE4AutoIt3_Dark ==> Dark SciTE4AutoIt3 Color scheme."
      The problem: The Line number column and the Output console do not reset back to their original colors.
      The Solution: Delete or edit the user config file. You can safely delete the config file because it will completely regenerate on SciTE restart- with it's factory (out of the box) color scheme.
      I also wrote a small script that will do it programatically: How to reset SciTE scheme in version 4.1.2.

      Hello.
      I'm using SciTE v3.3.14.5 I think, and I find this very annoying (GIF):
      https://i.gyazo.com/e60b5d94b8c16d217be4010e208d7042.mp4
       
      I've searched around but found nothing that helped including this:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/100517-stop-scite-removing-tab-indentations/
       
      So the problem obviously is that when I go to a new line after "EndIf", it removes the tab which I don't want to happen.
      Is there any fix?
       
      I've tried to change some configs such as 
          Line 183: # Indentation     Line 185: indent.size=0     Line 187: #indent.auto=0     Line 188: indent.automatic=0     Line 189: indent.opening=0     Line 190: indent.closing=0     Line 191: #tab.indents=0     Line 192: #backspace.unindents=0 strip.trailing.spaces=0 But nothing seems to get rid of this.
       
      Thanks

      There is an issue, while using the function SendSciTE_Command by @Jos, if more than one instance of SciTE is open. Each instance of SciTE has its own DirectorExtension window, so we must choose the right one.
      Here is a way to solve this:

      I've noticed in several YouTube tutorials about AutoIt that every time the instructor types EndFunc a comment "<==(function name)" is automatically added. I understand that Tidy will do this after the fact but what I'm writing about happens in real time. Where's the setting for this?  Thank you.
