Problem with SciTE and a question about processes

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am working on a script operating in Firefox. I have to loop random urls taken from a list. Thanks to the help of you people I worked the main concept out.
In this moment I am struggling with a strange behaviour of SciTE. I need to put an If condtion inside a loop.
I did it w/o problems some time ago, as you can see in the screenshot

(there is a while condition, although it is not visible)

But now I can't do it anymore, and I don't know why

Can you help me? Is this a bug?

I have one more question. I want the script to be as reliable as possible. To do so I need a routine that checks if Flash and Firefox are still running and responding, then react to these occurences. I can do the former using ProcessExist, but how about the latter?

Does exist a function that verifies if a process is still responding?

Congratulations! You have found a bug.

It is called the "missing EndIf" and should be placed right before Wend.

Good luck finding the next bug!

skyhigh,

Re your report: Grow up and accept a little humour in the replies you get.

Now you have altered the first post nothing much about this thread makes sense, but let me try and explain:

  • In your original post, you had indeed omitted an EndIf in your code - I was going to respond when I saw that someone else had already done so.
  • In this new code, you have an ElseIf with no associated expression, which will also fail.

And when you post code please use Code tags - see here how to do it - so that you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring.

skyhigh,

Thanks for the PM, but just start a new thread rather then try to modify this one yet again.

      Hello,
      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:

      Regards, Rudi.

      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[0] $iNum += Int($aNum[$i1]) Next WEnd Return $iNum EndFunc

      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
       
      No problem
       
      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
       
      Problem
       
      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
       
      Big Problem!!!
      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
