SciTE Config - Syntax Color Question

Recommended Posts

Hey Community,

I was changing around my color scheme manually for syntax highlighting. I really enjoy using a dark background color. However, this seems to be problematic because my blinking cursor is also very dark. Is there a setting in the ScITE config where I can manipulate the blinking cursor to be a different color like "white" so it is easy to spot when coding. The closest thing I found was "Caret Line Color", but this just changes the line highlight.  Your help is greatly appreciated!!

not sure how to do what you asked, but if it helps, at the very bottom bar of the SciTE window frame it shows the position (line and column) of the cursor.

ex. li=31 co=74


If @error Then
    MsgBox(262192, "", @ComputerName & " slaps " & @UserName & " around a bit with a large trout!")
    EndIf

Hey InunoTaishou,

Thanks for the advice.... I have never used the ISN AutoIt Studio, what are some of the key benefits of this application? Also, I grabbed your code for the theme.... I am not sure where I need to apply it though....

Although I would recommend ISN AutoIt Studio. Here's my config that will give you a nice pretty dark style. Right underneath my post is the workaround to change the caret color.

It's the closest thing to an IDE for AutoIt that we have. Much more than just the basic Scite Editor.

Once you've got it installed, and you've ran ISN to set everything up first, there's a config.ini under D:\Users\Your Username\My Documents\ISN AutoIt Studio\Data\ You can put those values in the post in that config file. You can also edit more settings by going to File -> Settings (Under Script Editor is the colors)

As for the Macro, to change the color for the caret. Project -> Macros -> New Macro. Click the + button next to functions and make the trigger Open File. Click the + button next to Details and select Execute Command. Hit OK and use this command

SendMessage($SCE_EDITOR[_GUICtrlTab_GetCurFocus($hTab)], $SCI_SETCARETFORE, 0xFFFFFF, 0)

You can change 0xFFFFF to whatever color you want the caret to be. Save your macro and re-open your script to update the caret.

Until the updated ISN comes up you'll have to add the macro to each project, so just save the macro and import it when you start a new project.

Well I am using ISN AutoIt Studio now... it is really neat... however I still have the same issues.... Cannot figure out how to change the blinking cursor color to white, since I have a black background....

The post right under where my config is (in the ISN autoit studio topic) tells you how to change the caret color (the blinking cursor is called the caret)

I also explained how to, step by step, add the macro to change the caret color in my last post in this topic.

This color is not part of the SciTEConfig options but can be manually added by adding this line in SciTEUser.properties:

# Make caret white
caret.fore=#FFFFFF

Here is a Monokai style dark theme for SCITE Editor: 

Look alike or similar to Sublime Text 3.

Simply copy that code in your "SciTEUser.properties" wich is in Options > Open User Options File

Happy coding everyone

very nice. I use Sublime mostly anyway for AutoIt but this is nice when I want to work in the other editor. I also really dig that open source editor SynWrite as well.


My resources are limited. You must ask the right questions

      I need to mute an ongoing call on Microsoft teams without activating the window. Teams allows us to mute using shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+m but only when the window is active.
      # Used set option as ongoing call can be with any person which leads to change in Title Name.
      AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 2 ) 
      # I am not clear with the control ID which will be good to use here and also the key combination of ^M

      Hi there, 
      I'm new in AutoIt forms and using AutoIt to automate desktop application (able to automate the application normally but facing issue when I've to re-run the application twice within the same script...so need help in this please)
      here is the steps then followed by the issue in a brief : 
      1- run application . 
      2- do some actions (click menus,activate windows,set texts..)
      3- close the application. 
      4- run the application again & access the same controls.
      5- open the same windows again (like step 2)
      6- perform some validations (by getting texts from some text boxes)
      7- close the application again (and repeat 1-7 for 15 times in average )
      The issue 
      * all controls are accessible in the first run and actions done successfully on controls (for steps 1-3) BUT from the second run of the application from step-4 it's able to set focus only the main application window.
      Note: only unique properties used to while mapping the controls. 
      Error that appear in the console :
      UIAWrappers.au3" (1673) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: $x = Int($t[1] + ($t[3] / 2)) $x = Int($t[1] + (^ ERROR

      Hello All!
      i suggest to set default encoding in Scite4 for Autoit 3 to UTF 8 with Bom encoding, format recommended also in Autoit Help.
      In last editor version, when i open new script, for example Czech characters (č, ř, ž) aren't correct.
      So when i change Encoding to UTF 8 with Bom from Default Code page property state, everithing seems to be OK.
      Thank you and sorry for potentialy duplicated content.

      I have an eof problem in SciTE. I keep gitting this knitsu at the end of the open sesion.
      Please see below. The file should end at line 1220 but has invisable lines. What am I doing wrong?
    • By AutoitMike
      Scite 3.4.4
      Win 10
      I click "Help" or press F1, there is no response
      If I use the file explorer and double click Autoit.chm or Autoit3.chm help opens.
      There is no dialog to check or uncheck "Always ask before opening this file" when clicking on these files.
       
      If you are curious as to why I dont have the latest version, I am creating a back up laptop that has a VERY extensive automation application that I have written over the past 15 years.
       
      An extremely potent, powerful, needed function has been deleted in the upgrade of Autoit in recent years that I can not do without. If my main laptop dies, which it almost did, I am in a very bad position. So I bought the exact same laptop and I am "cofiguring" it to work exactly the same as my main laptop. However, this one has been "Upgraded" to Win 10 which I hope is not the problem. 
      Thanks for any help
