Using AutoIt in Visual Studio Code

14 posts in this topic

Just a quick one, how you can add AutoIt support in Visual Studio Code.

  1. Download Visual Studio Code
  2. Download https://github.com/backr/Visual-Studio-Code-AutoIt
  3. Put the "autoit" folder in UserName\.vscode\extensions\
  4. Restart Visual Studio Code

Now AutoIt is configured automatically for all available Visual Studio Themes:

By username, i am assuming that you mean  "C:\Users\Myname".  If so there is no folder called ".vscode". So i am going to create one.

 

Damn... I can't create a folder with the name start with a period.

Use VSCode or SublimeText

Great plugin @minxomat. Maybe the dev team could look at adding this to AutoIt, autoit.tmLanguage at least.

Might be a silly question but how can I execute the code / compile the code?

No, i mean Username.

If your username is cat, then put the "autoit" folder from the download in C:\Users\cat\.vscode\extensions\ so that there is now a folder C:\Users\cat\.vscode\extensions\autoit.

Great plugin @minxomat. Maybe the dev team could look at adding this to AutoIt, autoit.tmLanguage at least.

@UEZ To run something you have to edit launch.json and put in the appropriate paths. Take a look at the online VSC Helpfile for that, they explain it much better than me. If you do it, please create a pull req on github so I can integrate it. Then the plugin would be ready to be pushed to the MS Marketplace.

@minxomat Is that sure that installation of vscode will make a folder in C:\Users\UserName\ ?. I have tried twice. But no folder created in that location. Is this a problem of my setup file ?.

Enter the path directly. .-preceeded folders are hidden by default. If you have VSC installed, the folder is guaranteed to be there. Please refer to the VSC online help if you still have this problem.

At last problem solved. It was my setup file's error. It was a 52 MB sized file. Then i have downloaded a new version which has only 42 MB. After installation, i found a folder named ".vscode". Now i am searching for how to run my code in code.

There are few ways. One could be to open folder with the script (open with VS Code) and then View->Command Palette..->Tasks:Configure Task Runner, and then paste this and save the document (check and set correct paths below before that):

// A task runner
{
    "version": "0.1.0",
    // The command
    "command": " ",
    // The command is a shell command?
    "isShellCommand": true,
    // Task name will be omited from the command line?
    "suppressTaskName": true,
    // Add some options
    "options": {
        //The current working directory of the executed program or shell
        "cwd": "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\AutoIt3\\"
    },
    // Define few tasks
    "tasks": [
        {
            "taskName": "Run",
            "args": [
                "autoit3.exe /ErrorStdOut \"${file}\""
            ],
            // If this property is set to true, Ctrl+Shift+T will trigger this task
            "isTestCommand": true
        },
        {
            "taskName": "Run x64",
            "args": [
                "autoit3_x64.exe /ErrorStdOut \"${file}\""
            ]
        },
        {
            "taskName": "Compile",
            "args": [
                ".\\Aut2Exe\\Aut2exe.exe /in \"${file}\""
            ],
            // If this property is set to true, Ctrl+Shift+B will trigger this task
            "isBuildCommand": true
        }
    ]
}

Then you can crtl+shift+T or ctrl+shift+B or just choose the task you want from the tasks (View->Command Palette..->Tasks: Run Task).

You can use it to run Jos's wrapper to get more control if you are used to that.
