ETB what it is ?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In SciTE when I press CTRL+SHIFT+W then there is inserted a scpecial sign "ETB" 
What it is ?

I want also to ask whether this feature is used / useful ?
I ask because I want to change the keyboard shortcut (in my own config)

So now the only question is: Is it used by any member in au3 scirpts ?
But as I think this can be handy only in very specific situation , but even in that case better solution would be to use:
 

Chr(4)

?

EDIT: Unless someone has to some special usage ?

There are also other chars.

For example to the following snippet manually Add each of showed combination

#include-once
#include <Array.au3>

#cs
    CTRL+SHIFT+W 
    CTRL+SHIFT+Y 
    CTRL+SHIFT+A 
    CTRL+SHIFT+G 
    CTRL+SHIFT+H 
    CTRL+SHIFT+Z 
    CTRL+SHIFT+X 
    CTRL+SHIFT+C 
    CTRL+SHIFT+N 

#CE

#include <ie.au3>

 

And now try to use CTRL+F5 (Au3check) then you will see:

Quote

warning: #comments-start has no explicit closing #comments-end (1 level).

EDIT:
I think about turn these characters off from the use in SciTE, so I think about adding them fake keyboard shortcuts.

Ctrl + letter by default maps to the corresponding ANSI control character and this behavior isn't special to SciTE, unless a specific such hotkey is declared.

      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

      Hi all:
      In Scite it is possible to expand and collapse  all  the #Region at time  with a shortcut ..?
      Now I use the + key to expand and collapse but I can only use this suggestion for a one # Region
      If I collapse all the regions one by one  in order to have the code more understandable when I re-open the script all the regions are expanded and I need to collapse all again one by one.
      Thank.s to all
      Altor

      Edit: A solution was found! Thanks Jos and others who helped me find this:
      You can have AutoIt run a different "Main" autoit script when you hit F5 instead of the current one, per folder, by doing the following:
      Run SciTE (might need administrator, depending on how autoit was installed) Options -> global properties (alt o g) Uncomment properties.directory.enable=1 (line 270 in my case) create a file SciTEDirectory.properties in the project's main folder Alternatively, if you don't have admin or don't want to edit the global.properties for whatever reason, you can just skip step 1,2,3 and name it SciTE.properties Put in the file you created command.go.$(au3)="$(SciteDefaultHome)\..\AutoIt3.exe" "$(SciteDefaultHome)\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "NAME OF SCRIPT HERE.au3" /UserParams $(1) $(2) $(3) $(4) Save the file. Now anything you run in that folder or subfolder will run the main script when you hit F5 Using SciTEDirectory.properties effects that folder and subfolders, where as SciTE.properties only effects that folder. Apart from that they work the same

      Original question:
      I have a main script, and a bunch of includes / udf's. Almost every single time I edit my includes I hit F5 to run the script, but it runs the include instead. I'm tired of switching back to the main script's tab in SciTE to run it, just to switch back to the include. Is there some kind of #flag or option to set a "main au3 file" so when I hit F5, it will see that and run the main file instead?
