Thanks Jos,

I see you have compiled Tidy and Au3Stripper for XP. I really appreciate that and will drop them into SciTE4AutoIt3 17.224.935.0 and see how Its goes for conflicts, if good I'll run with it and let you know =)  I'm in the middle of doing a basic C/++ WinAPI tutorial for DllCall  so I don't want to break anything for the moment, but will test on XP through 8.1 at the first chance. Again, thanks heaps =)

Hi Jos,

I'm going to try and tread careful here. When first trying to update 'Scite4autoit3' under Win XP I had some issues getting/finding and restoring my preferred theme which is close to the default theme.

Somewhere amidst this I had encountered 'SciTE Customization GUI' and installed it. A. Probably as part of trying to find/reinstate the default theme. B. It looked worthwhile testing as an additional theme editor. I haven't yet tested it ('SciTE Customization GUI') as yet, although I guess I must opened and took a peak at it.

Both('Scite4autoit3' and 'SciTE Customization GUI') are installed. I had actually forgot that the later was even there. When tweaking and trying to save my theme from 'Scite Config' it appeared to save under the theme name I had given, yet I could not find this anywhere in the 'User\Local Settings\Application Data\AutoIt v3\SciTE' Folder. It turned out I eventually found it in 'Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\SciTE Customization GUI\SciTE Customization GUI\Themes'( P.S. I am aware that configs should not be save in \Programs folder. My bad for putting it there). I had also noticed that 'Scite Config' didn't appear to behave the way it had in the past. I had brushed this off as part of the XP Install issue, but now I am uncertain as 'SciTE Customization GUI' appears to override the 'Scite Config' settings. It concerns me that 2 Applications may be fighting for supremacy over the same settings =(

'SciTE Customization GUI' doesn't appear to have any help file or documentation and it's difficult to assess what the default behavior should be.

The above information is provided just so you can understand what I have done so far, it's not your responsibility to answer issues with 3rd party tools.

Qs.After removing 'SciTE Customization GUI' and attempting to save the current theme with a Name I am unable to find a saved theme with that name either as a file or within the Scite4autoit3 '\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE' or '\Local Settings\Application Data\AutoIt v3\'. I would like to transfer my current them to my other AutoIt + Scite4autoit3 installs as I Update. (From XP though to Win10, and some *Nix boxes).

1.Is 'User\Local Settings\Application Data\AutoIt v3\SciTE\SciTEUser.properties' the default for saves?

2.If so can I transport my current SciTEUser.properties to the other installs and overwrite the default .properties file?

3.Also Can I rename this file (SciTEUser.properties) to 'MyTheme.properties and keep it in the '\Application Data\AutoIt v3\SciTE\SciTEConfig' folder? (the format appears different in the default theme files)

All I need to do is get my current Theme over to all other installs, and try to avoid making additional work for myself :)

(P.S. I've learn my lesson (again) and will test other apps in a VM test box in future)

Sorry for the long winded question, thanks in advance for your assistance.

The provided SciTEConfig is indeed the only software I support and that doesn't have a Save-Theme option as far as I know, and only saves the information to SciTEUSer.config.
You could create a new file in %localappdata%\AutoIt v3\SciTE\SciTEConfig with an ".SciteConfig" extension and copy the modified lines from SciTEUser.properties to this new file so you own theme is saved an can be reused later. SciTEConfig has to option to load these predefined schemes.
So which tool are you using?

Hi Jos, thanks a lot for your Sisyphean efforts (as maintaining software is never done).:)

Just to let you know, I did get an untrusted-app warning on W10/Pro x64 pausing the installation, but this can be ignored.

En gelukkig Nieuwjaar!

Dank je wel en ook een mooi 2019 voor jou. :) 

Did the installer itself give the warning because it isn't signed or was it one of the EXE inside?

If by tool you mean Scite Config, then Scite Config. I'll be staying with the official Scite4AutoIt3 and built in toolset, unless it is some helper script that I need and have created myself, And It would be a per project usage as an include. The only thing I do is change some of the default highlight setting and Font height a little to make it easy on my eyes. I use a number of development environments and SciTe is usually at the top of the choice list. In past years I have edited the config files display settings manually and considered creating an editor for basic settings. Fortunately you have that part nailed down for AutoIt, I still need to create something for my other SciTe installs such as RFO Basic.

I use AutoIt and test my AutoIt scripts across a numerous Windows installs as well as ReactOS and *nix (Wine) in Hardware and Virtual Machine, so keeping the same/ish clean AutoIt install across all makes it convenient for writing and testing under different environments. That may sound a little extreme, but I just like to ensure things work as expected before I use it in real. What is extreme is an old laptop, wireless card, Win8.1 install/Boot disk and a copy of AutoIt3 and Scite4AutoIt3 portable as your default Dev environment. I spent six months writing au3 scripts from a boot disc as my primary OS, not because I had to, but because it seemed like a worthy challenge. That exercise sold me on AutoIt + Scite forever =D

So portable AutoIt3 and Scite4AuoIt3 Clean default install + a copy of Win API help file + a boot disk and a working box with an internet connection and you can create your dreams.

I expect a version of AutoIt to integrate the full version of SciTE.

Thank Jos.

Don't hold your breath as this installer and it software is ONLY maintained by me and nobody else has access to the source.
The "only" thing that is part of the AutoIt SVN is the SciTE source, which I also maintain for both the Lite and Full version part.

Hope it's not the mouse I have that SciTE don't like 

but When doing a negative scroll with the mouse wheel above the SciTE window the scrolling effect isn't as smooth as with other apps

Simple test: Is the SciTE window smooth Scrolling for you evenly in to both ways ? 

Thanks

Jos - running Running AU3Check (3.3.14.5) on one script gives me this error

! There were more than 100 Errors found. Only showing the first 100.

-=============================================================================================================
-#### Au3Stripper Found 118 Error(s)!!!!    This means your script could have problems running properly.  ####
-=============================================================================================================

It seems that if there are less than 100 errors - the errors are listed (and can then be fixed)

But in this case - I cannot find what it is that Au3Stripper doesn't like.

Also - I have tried using   Au3Stripper parameters /TL /debug in  AutoIt3Wrapper  but it does not produce a log file.

Is this expected ?

Thanks.

Steve

I am a little confused here: you mention au3check, but show au3stripper.
Au3stripper will list each issue found and "only" print details on the first 100....  didn't you get those?

      If you have every taken the time to set up a nice dark theme for your scite editor, you probably noticed shortly after a small yet really annoying flaw. For what ever reason, scite is not set up to let you change the caret fore color and caret line color per language. This really sucks if say you want to edit a properties file or any of the many other languages that Scite currently is setup to support. Pretty much all the other languages are set as light theme so unless you change the theme for those file types, you end up with something like below where the line color and caret are still using the dark theme colors. Line 3 in the pic:
       

       
      To get around this I came up with the following that seems to work pretty well.  
       
      Add the following properties to SciteUser.properties file (Options -> Open User Options File). Update colors to your own needs. You can addionally add any other propertys that dont have a lexer language option in the same fashion.
      # The default values (light themes) will be used for any lexer other than au3 caret.default.fore=#000000 caret.default.line.back=#FFFED8 selection.default.fore=#006000 selection.default.back=#F0A0A8 caret.au3.fore=#FFFFFF caret.au3.line.back=#111111 selection.au3.fore=#C2FFAE selection.au3.back=#f9f9f9  
      Add the following function to PersonalTools.Lua file. As jos pointed out, the OnStartup covers the filetab switches as well as the startup so only need the one function:
      function PersonalTools:OnStartup() -- the "and" + "or" keywords are ternary operators here local sLex = self:IsLexer(SCLEX_AU3) and 'au3' or 'default' props['caret.line.back'] = props['caret.' .. sLex .. '.line.back'] props['caret.fore'] = props['caret.' .. sLex .. '.fore'] props['selection.fore'] = props['selection.' .. sLex .. '.fore'] props['selection.back'] = props['selection.' .. sLex .. '.back'] end
      Last restart SciTE and that should be it. Let me know if you have any issues. Thanks

      Is there a way to remove the numbers from the tabs in Scite?
      When you have multiple autoit programs open, the tabs are numbered, so you'll get something like 1 ProgramA.au3    2 Program2.au3   3 Program3.au3
      I am working on programs with numbers as the first character, so I get  1 3-DoThis.au3     2 4-DoAnother.au3   3 5-DoTheRest.au3  (not the real program names, obviously :))
      It would be nice if I could get rid of the tab number, and just have the program name on each tab.

      HI people,
                        I got a questions, I maintain code in autoIT and every time I compile a new version or modification, Scite generate 2 folders. One folder is finish by released and the other is tentative. I try to make some google search, but never find answer would satisfied myself. The dev who was maintain it before were using AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI, and I don't know if it's related. I look both folder, but they seem pretty identical, but I would like to know what it's the difference between those to folder. Anyone have a clue?

      ConsoleWrite('>Message here.' & @CRLF) outputs colored text (per + > - ! characters).
      ConsoleWrite('warning' & @TAB & '38' & @TAB & 'more text ...' & @CRLF) enables jump to line 38 on doubleclick.

      Using "jump to line" format, only red and pink text coloring seems possible (simply prefixing color directives to output-text disables jump to line functionality). Is it possible to combine the two (define custom color while keeping "jump to line" functionality)?
