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 $iNum EndFunc
I need this for a project and I don't find a method for the next problem.
I want when I click a button to create a variable ("$variable1") so if I press one more time to create one more ("$variable2") and create more and more how many times you press the button.
Do you have an idea ?
Thank you for your attention !
I've ported these two functions from PHP to AU3 to work with URLs.
Made them for those who work with libraries like HTTP.au3 (not the one I coded), that needs passing the server domain, path, etc., instead of the full URL.
Grab the lib here.
ParseURL( $sURL )
Parses the URL and splits it into defined parts. Returns an array:
 = Full URL (same as $sURL)  = Protocol (i.e.: http, https, ftp, ws...)  = Domain  = Port (or null if not specified)  = Path (or null if not specified)  = Query string (everything after the ? - or null if not specified) Example:
$aExample = ParseURL("https://google.com:8080/?name=doe") MsgBox(0, "Test", "URL: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Protocol: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Domain: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Port: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Path: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Query string: " & $aExample)
ParseStr( $sStr )
Parses a query string (similar to the  of the previous function) and returns a multidimensional array, where:
 = number of variables found  = ununsed  = key name of the first variable  = first variable value (already URL decoded) [n] = key name of the nth variable [n] = nth variable value (already URL decoded) Example:
include <Array.au3> ; need only to do _ArrayDisplay, not needed by the lib _ArrayDisplay(ParseStr("foo=bar&test=lol%20123")) #cs Result is:  = 2  = ununsed  = foo  = bar  = test  = lol 123 #ce Feel free to fork!
#include <Date.au3> #include <TrayConstants.au3> HotKeySet("^d", "WhatIsToday") Global $Today = _Date_Time_GetSystemTime While 1 Sleep(100) WEnd Func WhatIsToday() TrayTip("Today's date", "Today is... " & $Today, 8) Sleep(8000) TrayTip("", "", 0) EndFunc ;==>WhatIsToday all it outputs into tray bubble is: Today is...
without getting the system time as text
So I have a little script here
Func getThe () Local $nearPix = 0123 Local $winPos = WinGetPos ($workWin) FFSaveBMP ("yBarPosArea", "True" , 600, 239, 600, 555, 30, $workWin) $nearPix = FFNearestPixel (600, 220, "0xC1C1C1" , False, $workWin) If $nearPix == 0123 Then ConsoleWrite ("No val for NearPix") ElseIf $nearPix <> 0123 Then ConsoleWrite ("Val is there") ConsoleWrite ($nearPix&","&$nearPix&@CR) EndIf EndFunc And when it comes time to run it I get a return of
When it says "non-accessible variable" , what is it meaning by that? The scope is "Local" and it is within the same function. The variable was even referenced in the step right before the one throwing the error. Any insight would be thoroughly appreciated. Thank you!
