AU3 language support in SciTE

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hello,

I'm using the latest SciTE Version and I'm looking for the support for *.au3 files.

In the main folder I found the file au3.properties. But in the menu/language au3 is missed as language.

How can I add au3 to the language menu?

 

Best regards,

Tom

@phantomjunior not sure what you mean. If you have downloaded the full version of SciTE, in the language menu the very first option should be AutoIt2 (.au3). Are you not seeing this?

I'm talking about SciTE 3.7.4 not SciTE4AutoIt3.

That is defined in the SciTEGlobal.properties. Please remember that Neil's version of the au3lexer is quite old. I have not bothered submitting updates since is is by defaukt disabled and am maintaining my own version based on his source.

Hi,

I found a solution for my problem. When I rename the file au3.properties to e.g. au4.properties, all is fine.

Do you have an idea for the reason? I took a fresh installation of scite 3.7.4 and renamed the file au3.properties. 

Strange. Is'nt it.

No it is not and i've already pointed you in the right directory. This is the bottom section of SciTEGlobal.properties which clearly states why au3.properties doesn't work:

# To keep menus short, these .properties files are not loaded by default.
imports.exclude=abaqus asl asn1 au3 avenue avs baan blitzbasic bullant \
cobol cmake csound ecl escript flagship forth freebasic gap haskell inno \

# Newly removed: ave baan escript lot metapost mmixal
# The set of imports allowed can be set with
#imports.include=ave

# Import all the language specific properties files in this directory
import *
