Scite4Autoit3 default encoding suggestion


Recommended Posts

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.

You mean you open a new empty script and type these characters it is saved wrong, since the default is UTF8 without bom so would expect it to be that?

When i open blank new script and type this characters, there are written as letters without typical language diacritics. So (č is showed as c), (ň is showed as n).

And characters are also saved like that.

And when i open new script, in File/Encoding submenu only item Code page property is checked, no any UTF 8 items.

When i check resp select one UTF 8 item from file/Encoding menu, everithing is OK, characters are shown correctly.

So when you add this to your Scite Userconfig: (SciTE menu:Options/Open User properties file

NewFileEncoding=UTF8BOM

Things work correctly?

EDIT: and you are using the FULL version right, not the one supplied with the AUtoIt3 installer....right?

I'm mainly using Total Commander with tool, which redirects configured extensions to proper editors.

So when i hyt F4 on .txt file, i't opens in Metapad.

When i hyt F4 on .au3, it opens in full version of Autoit Editor.

And Shift+f4 is making new blank file of specifyed type.

So when i hyt Shift+F4, type the filename with .au3 extension (for example: test.au3), the redirecting tool takes the name written by me and passes it to Autoit editor as argument.

An when i do this, above discussed characters are stil wrong.

 

But when i run Scite without arguments, after editing my properties as you wrote, everithink is OK.

Thank you again.

Ok, understand now.

So please try adding this option as well in your SciTEUser.properties file:

utf8.auto.check=3

.. and see if that changes it.

I see indeed that an empty file defaults to "code page properties" in stead of the set option. 
As soon as you put a few characters in there, it will default to the correct set default.

Will have a look to see if I can find that issue or if this needs to be reported on the official website.

Could you try this version of SciTE and remove the above settings from your SciTEUSer.properties file to see if the default behaviour is correct now?

Thanks

shoot ...  it was now working fine when opening an empty file, but you are right, when I type a command in CMD like "scite d:\temp\test3.au3" it still opens with a "code page" encoding...   going to check.

Update the Beta version with one that seems to be working also when opened with a file on the commandline.

Could you give that a try?

In this case, it seems to me be the same as at the start of this topic.

I have no changes in config files.

And in both situations (empty documment / passed argument) is checked only Code page property.

It's not so big problem to switch it, it's only little detail, that would be nice to have automaticaly set.. :)

      While Scite doesn't support high dpi, I open it in compatibility settings. But it brings another problem:My au3 app automatically enables high dpi, causing gui disorder.
      I've tried #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=N but it doesn't work. I'd appreciate it if you could offer some help. Thanks.

      Hi! Can someone help me with this? I upgraded from SciTe Edit Lite to full version. Now every time I edit a script it opens on a new SciTe tab, but I want it opens on a new window like before the upgrade. Can someone help me with that? Thanks!!

      When posting scripts to platforms that use different tab settings (e.g. GitHub), they are ripped from their formatting.
      Thus, it is better to replace all tabs with spaces in the correct position before posting. I have created the following Lua script for this purpose. It replaces all tabs with the appropriate number of spaces in the document opened in SciTE. By default a tab width of 4 characters is used. But other values are also possible, details about this and the installation and usage are at the beginning of the script.
      -- TIME_STAMP 2022-05-01 11:28:55 v 0.1 --[[ == Installation == • Store the file to "YOUR-PATH/TabReplaceSciTE.lua" • New entry in your "SciTEUser.properties" (find a free command number, in example is "49" used, and a free shortcut) #49 Replace TAB with spaces command.name.49.*=Replace TAB with spaces command.49.*=dofile "YOUR-PATH/TabReplaceSciTE.lua" command.mode.49.*=subsystem:lua,savebefore:no command.shortcut.49.*=Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R • If your sources has different values for TAB width, you can modify the command call in this script (last line), "TabReplace_FileInSciTE(2)" or "TabReplace_FileInSciTE(8)". Or add a property to your "SciTEUser.properties" to have more flexibility: # The currently used tab.size, which is replaced by spaces # Without this property or with empty value "4" is used. tab.replace.width=2 Then change the last line in this script to: TabReplace_FileInSciTE(props['tab.replace.width']) == Usage == • Open any script. • Hit the shortcut. • In the opened document, all TAB will be replaced by the number of spaces corresponding to the TAB position in the line. ]] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --[[ in...: _line A line of text whose TAB are to be replaced by spaces. .....: _tabsize TAB size in number of characters.

      message has lines too long for transport jpeg, pdf works with no problems, any sugestion ?

      I'm using the following:
      Autoit 3.3.14.5
      newly installed Beta 3.3.15.5
      SQlite version 3380000 aka 3.38.0
      I put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3_x64.dll in C:\Windows\System32 since many scripts depend on them.


      I extended the output of _SQLite_Startup()
      with:
      ConsoleWrite("@AutoItX64 " & @AutoItX64 & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("$sDll_Filename " & $sDll_Filename & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

      Also using the script from https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_SQLite_Startup.htm for testing.

       
      >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0


      Why doesn't it work in 32bit, despite me having the 32bit sqlite.dll? Autoit urges running scripts in 32bit mode and Scite starts scripts just in 32bit mode without the flag?
      With #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y it just works, both normal Autoit and beta!
