ScITE code highlighting with #cs/#ce

Recommended Posts

I've been experiencing an issue with #cs/#ce block comments and AutoIt code highlighting in ScITE. When I insert the comments-start line, the subsequent lines in the file become comment-colored (green) as expected. Much of the time, when I insert the #ce line, the lines following the comments-end revert to normal code highlighting as expected. But other times, the subsequent lines (to the end of the file) stay green until I save, close, and re-open the file. This seems to occur most often when I am using #cs/#ce to comment-out a section of code, but IIRC it can also occur in cases where I'm just inserting a large comment.

So far, I haven't noticed any pattern to this behavior. The only thing that I can think of is the way I'm entering the #cs & #ce lines when commenting-out code; I often do the following;

  1. Insert the #cs line, something like: #cs ======== Explanation for commenting-out ========
  2. Text below the line turns green
  3. Copy the entire #cs line
  4. Paste it after the code section (as #cs ...)
  5. Edit the pasted line to start with #ce instead of #cs
  6. The text below the #ce either reverts to normal ScITE/AutoIt highlighting OR remains green, in which case I have to close and reopen the file to restore normal highlighting.

I'm using ScITE Version 3.6.0 (Aug  4 2015 17:34:27).

Any thoughts or suggestions?

This issue is a know issue and reported some time ago.

Current beta version already have some fixes in this regard and trust me current state is better then before.

Unfortunately not perfect as you found, but this is @Jos project so only he can say anything more about.

@tremolux66,

Please try the latest available Beta SciTE.exe & Scilexer.dll combination to see if this issue still exists.
If so then I will have a look, but a quick check of the described steps don't fail on my SciTE version.

Thanks, will give that a try. It may take awhile to verify since the problem is intermittent; I don't know of a way to reproduce it on demand. (The possible cause I described was just a SWAG.)

I did fix some issues form the commentblock lexing so am sure you hit on one of those, so that is why I proposed to use beta. I will need the exact steps in case you hit on another one. :)

JUst create a new .au3 with the Template

add some code at the end

Finally you get the pb inserting in first line a ligne starting with #test or even #AutoIt3Wrapper_*

I hope that help

I am running with the latest SciTE.exe/dll of the beta area

Good luck

Thanks, I was indeed one time able to replicate the behavior, but then it kept working fine for me...  still trying to come up with a simple way to replicate it so it can be debugged. 

edit: Strike that..., found a easy way to replicate it so can do some debugging!

I found an issue in the lexer and fixed that in the current Beta versions of SciTE.exe & SciLexer.dll.
Please check whether you can still get it to go wrong.

It is the 3.7.5 version of SciTE I updated with this. Will also look at the 4.0.2 version of SciTE.

The test version 4.0.2 now has the same update located here: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/download/Develop_Share/

Remember this is a major change of SciTE which isn't declared stable as yet and requires an update for all files located in this directory for SciTE to function properly.

using Dev SciTE4Au3 v4.0.2

Try this:

#Au3Stripper_Ignore_Funcs

#cs
#ce

MsgBox(0, "", "")

And focus #cs #ce hit few times, enter <> backspace, just play with it and you will find situaltion when MsgBox() is getting grey.

mmm..  not so much an exact replicator here :)

Anyways: it is as simple as...use this code

#Au3Stripper_Ignore_Funcs
#cs
#ce
$a=1

Insert line 2 and type any character and hit backspace and the last line becomes the color of the commentblock

Got something to debug....

It is only the $.0.2 version that is wrong as I missed one line to merge  between the separate projects. :)

Uploaded an updated SciLexer.dll for the 4.0.2 version in Develop_Share.

Better now ... but I notice some problem with  folding.

image.png.0cb0ef1c8aef31b62762be3d9c81dcca.png

 

Try this simple repro snippet:

#Au3Stripper_Ignore_Funcs
#cs
#ce
MsgBox(0, "", "")

#cs
#ce

MsgBox(0, "", "")

HOWTO: 

GoTo 3,1 and hit Enter ... and Backspace

do I need to switch to?

That is up to you. I have made the new SciTE 4.0.2 available as a separate setup. Neil doesn't deem this yet as production so have done this merge separate and will not move it into the production thread until that changes, so it is there for those that what to have a go.  Many things changed, including the LUA scripts, so there is no simple switch between the 2 versions.

      The block comment (internal: box comment) in SciTE cannot be toggled.
      I have now created a script that helps. It works with any file type for which the corresponding entries in the properties are created.For toggeling its required to detect, what the user want to do.
      Rules for detection:     - selection starts in an empty line (line break only)         following line begins with comment.box.start ==> action: uncomment         otherwise                                    ==> action: comment     - selection starts in line with text         line begins with comment.box.start           ==> action: uncomment         otherwise                                    ==> action: comment     - selection ends in an empty line AND       the line before begins with comment.box.end    ==> action: both lines are part of comment block, will deleted     - selection ends in line with comment.box.end    ==> action: line will deleted     - At least two lines must be selected, otherwise an error message is output to the console. This means that in nested block comments there is at least one more line between two comment.box.start markers.
      It is recommended to write all block comment settings into "SciTEUser.properties". The setting "comment.box.end.au3" from "SciTEGlobal.properties" is incorrect and must be corrected.
      comment.box.start.au3=#cs #~ If TAB should used as box.middle, define an alternation (e.g. "@Tab"),  #~ "\t" will not recognised as tab if passed as propertie. comment.box.tab.alternation= #~ If you want characters or tab in each line of comment block, define it here. #~ To use TAB, set the alternation variable here: $(comment.box.tab.alternation) comment.box.middle.au3= comment.box.end.au3=#ce Connection to SciTE
      Search a free command number. Use a Hotkey of your choice.
      If you have declared an option for user lua scripts (e.g.: "Lua.User.Scripts.Path=C:\code\lua"), copy the script to this folder.
      Otherwise copy it to a folder of your choice and change the path in the command: "dofile". But backslashes in the path must be masked. ("\\").
      If your path has spaces don't forgot to encapsulate in string delimiters.

In this case "Ctrl+Shift+B" for IDM_BLOCK_COMMENT. Therefore I used the connection shown here.
      But if overwriting is possible, I would be interested in this solution.

      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       
      ControlSend ( "Microsoft Teams", "", "[CLASS:Intermediate D3D Window; INSTANCE:1]", "{ctrl down}")
       
      Can anyone help...!!!

      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  
      Simple spy code  of one of the controls that has this strange issue(menubar&view menu Item): 
      ;~ *** Standard code maintainable *** #include "UIAWrappers.au3" AutoItSetOption("MustDeclareVars", 1) _UIA_setVar("oP1","Title:=XXX;controltype:=UIA_WindowControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app") ;main app form xxx _UIA_setVar("oP2","Title:=menuStrip1;controltype:=UIA_MenuBarControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app") ;menuStrip1 ;~ $oUIElement=_UIA_getObjectByFindAll("View.mainwindow", "title:=View;ControlType:=UIA_MenuItemControlTypeId", $treescope_subtree) _UIA_setVar("oUIElement","Title:=View;controltype:=UIA_MenuItemControlTypeId;class:=") ;ControlType:=UIA_MenuItemControlTypeId;classname:=") ;~ Actions split away from logical/technical definition above can come from configfiles ;~_UIA_Action("oP1","highlight") _UIA_Action("oP1","setfocus") ;~_UIA_Action("oP2","highlight") _UIA_Action("oP2","setfocus") _UIA_action("oUIElement","highlight") ;~_UIA_action("oUIElement","click")

      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.
