..I'm coding the High Contrast theme editor and using the _ChooseColor() I wandered why it does not keep the the custom colors I've added.
Found that adding a static declaration would do it. But why stop there. Why not keep going, So I put this together that is non code braking ( backwards compatible ), to replace the one in <Misc.au3>

I click "Help" or press F1, there is no response
If I use the file explorer and double click Autoit.chm or Autoit3.chm help opens.
There is no dialog to check or uncheck "Always ask before opening this file" when clicking on these files.
If you are curious as to why I dont have the latest version, I am creating a back up laptop that has a VERY extensive automation application that I have written over the past 15 years.
An extremely potent, powerful, needed function has been deleted in the upgrade of Autoit in recent years that I can not do without. If my main laptop dies, which it almost did, I am in a very bad position. So I bought the exact same laptop and I am "cofiguring" it to work exactly the same as my main laptop. However, this one has been "Upgraded" to Win 10 which I hope is not the problem.
Thanks for any help
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
I have one special Combo-box [with BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE) ] and if I press one button I want to change the Combo-box's background color, and after I press Button B I want to change it to the basic settings and it not works.
I wanna do this with one combo-box.
I have already tried several methods and I tried GUICtrlComboSetColors that I have found on this forum.
(But this methods works perfectly with Cobo boxes that don't have BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE).
Here is the example code
#include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <ComboConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= ;$CBS_DROPDOWNLIST ;$GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 504, 249, 252, 227) $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 136, 24, 193, 25,BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO, $CBS_SIMPLE)) ; I want to change this special combo's background color if I press button 1 $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 112, 96, 75, 25) $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button2", 264, 96, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### GUICtrlSetData($Combo1," " & "|" & "apple" & "|" & "banana" & "|" & "cherry" ," ") While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $Button1 GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo1,0x0078D7) Case $Button2 ;Makes the original bc color GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo1,0xFFFFFF) EndSwitch WEnd
Thanks you in advance your help
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.
