I've been wanting to  be able to select text in my AutoIT script (editing in Scite) and change it to uppercase.

I found:

http://lua-users.org/wiki/UsingLuaWithScite

That guides how to do it (and generally how to add Lua commands to the Tools menu) but perhaps because the Scite is flavoured for AutoIT, even the simplest example fails.

For example, it says:

Quote

Here is a simple example; put this in your properties file (could be local,user or global):

 


command.name.1.*=Load Lua
command.subsystem.1.*=3
command.1.*=dofile $(FilePath)

You will now have a menu item called 'Load Lua' on the Tools menu

OK ... so to test this, I created SciTEUser.properties (attached) with the commands above and placed it in the same folder as the existing SciTEGlobal.properties and opened up my AutoIT script.

Disappointingly, I couldn't find 'Load Lua' on the Tools menu ... any ideas how to make it all happen please?

I also tried:

Quote

Put this in a Lua file (say test.lua) in your home directory

 


function make_uppercase()
  local sel = editor:GetSelText()
  editor:ReplaceSel(string.upper(sel))
end

and in your properties file, put this

 


ext.lua.startup.script=$(SciteUserHome)/test.lua

command.name.12.*=Make Selection Uppercase
command.subsystem.12.*=3
command.12.*=make_uppercase
command.mode.12.*=savebefore:no
command.shortcut.12.*=Ctrl+M

Now, after selecting text, you can make it uppercase with Ctrl+M.

with same failure, but it's this one I'd like to get working somehow.

What about simply using Ctrl+Shift+u to make the selected text uppercase?

-or else when you want your own lua functions simply add them to PersonalTools.lua located in the same directory as SciTEUser.properties.

Dont know how your german is, but AutoIt.de has a LUA section with lots of info and startup "guide", i dont use it myself though.

Use some online translator, maybe your browser have it built in.

Info thread...

https://autoit.de/index.php?thread/26871-lua-ich-wir-lerne-n/

The subforum itself

https://autoit.de/index.php?board/56-lua/

Alot of info on SciTe and LUA.

Ctrl+Shift+u

Thanks Jos ... works perfectly.

Ctrl+u to lowercase apparently.

I did search the Keyboard shortcuts in Scite help, but these appear to be missing?

I haven't tried "PersonalTools.lua" but very useful to know.

- Thanks to Werty also ... I'll try Google translating it if I get a requirement for LUA again,

noted that Ctrl+u lowercases in case useful for others.

Here a script that may help you (and others) to find the shortcuts stored in different locations (you will also find Ctrl+Shift+U -> see 4.).  

Global $sPrefix = StringTrimRight(@AutoItExe, 11)
Global $sAu3Prop, $sGlobalProp, $sUserProp, $sFile, $aMatch, $sResult

; 1. Read shortcuts from au3.properties :
$sAu3Prop = $sPrefix & 'SciTE\properties\au3.properties'
$sResult  = ''
ConsoleWrite ('-------- Shortcuts from au3.properties ---------- ' & @CRLF)
$sFile   = FileRead($sAu3Prop)
For $i = 0 To 49
    $aMatch = StringRegExp($sFile, 'command\.shortcut\.' & $i & '\.\$\(au3\)=(.+)', 1)
    If IsArray($aMatch) Then
        $sResult &= $aMatch[0] & '|'
        $aMatch = StringRegExp($sFile, 'command\.name\.' & $i & '\.\$\(au3\)=(.+)', 1)
        $sResult &= $aMatch[0] & @CRLF
    EndIf
Next
ConsoleWrite($sResult & @CRLF)


; 2. Read shortcuts from SciTEGlobal.properties :
$sGlobalProp = $sPrefix & 'SciTE\SciTEGlobal.properties'
$sResult = ''
ConsoleWrite ('-------- Shortcuts from SciTEGlobal.properties ---------- ' & @CRLF)
$sFile = FileRead($sGlobalProp)
$aMatch = StringRegExp($sFile, '(?m)user\.shortcuts=([^# ]+)', 1)
If IsArray($aMatch) Then
    $sResult = StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace($aMatch[0], '\|?\\', ''), '\|$', '')
EndIf
ConsoleWrite($sResult & @CRLF)


; 3. Read shortcuts from SciTEUser.properties :
; Info :
; A modified version of the SciTEUser.properties may be located in another folder,
; i.e. @LocalAppDataDir\SciTE\SciTEUser.properties

;~ $sUserProp = $sPrefix & 'SciTE\SciTEUser.properties'
$sUserProp = @LocalAppDataDir & '\AutoIt v3\SciTE\SciTEUser.properties' ;
$sResult = ''
ConsoleWrite ('-------- Shortcuts from SciTEUser.properties ---------- ' & @CRLF)
$sFile = FileRead($sUserProp)
If @error Then
    ConsoleWrite ('! File not found : ' & $sUserProp & @CRLF)
Else
    $aMatch = StringRegExp($sFile, '(?m)user\.shortcuts=([^# ]+)', 1)
    If IsArray($aMatch) Then
        $sResult = StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace($aMatch[0], '\|?\\', ''), '\|$', '')
        ConsoleWrite($sResult & @CRLF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite ('! No shortcuts found. Use another folder' & @CRLF & @CRLF)
        $sResult = ''
    EndIf
EndIf

; 4. From the SciTERes.rc (just a list) : (Menu | Action | Shortcut)
ConsoleWrite ('-------- Shortcuts from SciTERes.rc ---------- ' & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite ('File | New | Ctrl+N' & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite ('File | Open... | Ctrl+O' & @CRLF)

I have only summarized the information from the german site into one script and added small enhancements ;).
