I thought I might share my little Language UDF plus the more powerful SciTE Tool to ship Strings from SciTE into the xml file. While I haven't had the time to fully adapt the small UDF to one of the big XML-UDFs the so called "Language Transmitter" that basically writes the XML file for you runs mostly on "XML DOM wrapper (COM)" by eltorro. The Transmitter should work with other XML-Language-UDFs depending on their encoding.
First let's start with the UDF, there are two functions of interest: _LangInit($sFilePath) and s($sString) As you will have guessed, _LangInit($sFilePath) is called once to initialize the UDF and s($sString) is used to receive the string to your key. Plain and simple.
Now to the actual "new" part, the Language Transmitter. It basically allows you to transfer a selected String from SciTE into a xml file. While doing so it will scan for AutoIt variables, macros etc. and parse the string to fit StringFormat(). It then saves the formatted string in the xml file and returns the formatted call into SciTE. If the selected string is already defined it will directly parse the key into SciTE. To change the default output file, you can either edit the ini-file in the @ScriptDir of the LanguageTransmitter.exe or press Alt+A on empty space again and keep clicking cancel/no until the Transmitter let's you select the current output file. Standard output is strings.xml in the current opened AutoIt Script.
; given the line: MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'Error message') ; select 'Error' run the Transmitter follow the instructions, repeat with 'Error message'. Outcome (e.g.): MsgBox(16, s('Error'), s('Error_msg')) ; Variables and Macro example: $sString = "Value: " & $iValue & @CRLF & 'Another value: '& $iValue2 ; Select the full string including all AutoIt variables and macros etc. in SciTE and press Alt+A (default) to run the LanguageTransmitter ; follow the instructions and it will then paste a formatted string like that into SciTE: $sVar = StringFormat(s('Key'), $iValue, $iValue2) ; the correlating xml entry should look like that: ; <string name="Key">Value: %s\r\nAnother value: %s</string> ; as you can see @CRLF has been replaced with \r\n as well. If you are working on a project and want to directly add a string to the xml file just start the Language Transmitter without selecting any text, enter your string and a key.
Since xml files are required all examples can be found in the zip file. There are two examples, one includes a language selection interface.
Language File Checker
I added a script to check whether the xml file contains all required strings or even unnecessary strings.
Hope you like my little helper!

Hello to all, my problem is to have in the same gui buttons (static and dinamically generated ones) and an edit control.
The gui also adjust its height in function of button number.
Below you see an ugly interface and the long buttons at the bottom are dinamically generated reading from a txt file.
Because I have "static" buttons and dynamically generated ones it's not workin' well your method, also the EDIT area is updated (is a live log) and this is detected as GUI events, and this makes the guigetmsg() "dirty".
Have you any ideas to make it work in better way ? I only think about creating two different GUIs to not interfere one with the other one.
My code is this
While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GOLLOG("<<<< STOP <<<<") Exit #cs ; test 1 Case $iStart To $iEnd ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< gollog(GUICtrlRead($nMsg) & ' ' & 'was pressed' & @CRLF) $iValueToWorkWith = $nMsg - $iStart ; Adjust as required gollog($iValueToWorkWith) ;ExitLoop #ce Case $buttonarray To $buttonarray[UBound($buttonarray) - 1] $UMDguimsg = GUICtrlRead($nMsg) If $UMDguimsg <> 0 Then GOLLOG("ButtonText=[" & $UMDguimsg & "] was clicked") EndIf Case $Bcerca If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idradio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Multisearch("username-machinedescription") If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idradio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Multisearch("machinename-username") ;Multisearch("username-machinedescription") Case $Block lock() Case $Busergroups usergroups() Case $Bvnc VNC() Case $Icercato If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idradio1), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Multisearch("username-machinedescription") If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($idradio2), $GUI_CHECKED) = $GUI_CHECKED Then Multisearch("machinename-username") #CS Multisearch("username-machinedescription") Case Else msgbox(64,"test",GUIGetMsg()) $UMDguimsg = GUICtrlRead(GUIGetMsg()) If $UMDguimsg <> $salvaUMDguimsg Then MsgBox(64, "test2", $UMDguimsg) $salvaUMDguimsg = $UMDguimsg #CE EndIf EndSwitch WEnd Thank you , cheers,
please i need to link a progress bar with a time can you help me?
i want to set a progress bar for 10 sec
am waiting for your answers
Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
Some files from cannot be downloaded although they are visible on the web site!
Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.1 build 2017-10-23 beta.7z (1353 downloads previously)
-=> Requires AutoIt version 18.104.22.168 or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help.
I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks.
Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.
The language of the tool tip from each of the executable in the left list view were automatically created using Google translator and weren't checked for correctness.
I want create retractable bar using autoit
I tried creating slider, but there's a problem with screen reader for the blind, so is there another retractable tape?
It is advisable to not accept dragging with the keybord only with mouse
This bar is needed in the process of raising and lowering the volume
I hope that there is a solution to do that
i waiting your responses.
Thanks in advance to all members and administrators
