SciTE Customization Question

7 posts in this topic

I am looking to customize SciTE, more specifically to eliminate a number

of menu options that I won't be using.

I can see how to do this by modifying the SciTE configuration files, by

simply "commenting-out" the menu items. I tried that and it worked.

But then, I read that one shouldn't mess with the SciTE config files,

If one wishes to customize, one should place _ALL_ customizations in the

SciteUser.Properties.

So here is the question, how do you eliminate a menu item from the

SciteUser.Properties file???

Another question: I would like to hide the "Fold Margin". I am able

to do this via the menu (click view => foldmargin). But I can't seem

to do it via the SciteUser.Properties file. I tried this:

fold.margin.visible=0

but, that has no effect.

I copied all of the Au3.properties to User Properties, removed the stuff that basicly can be left alone, then modify to satisfaction.

Here are some item's I have disabled as I use the property files to configure the version of AutoIt to use.

###- T O O L S -###

# 00  Beta RUN (Disabled)
command.0.*.au3=
command.name.0.*.au3=
command.save.before.0.*.au3=
command.shortcut.0.*.au3=

# 01  Beta AUT2EXE (Disabled)
command.1.*.au3=
command.name.1.*.au3=
command.save.before.1.*.au3=
command.shortcut.1.*.au3=

# 02  Beta Help (Disabled)
command.2.*.au3=
command.name.2.*.au3=
command.subsystem.2.*.au3=
command.shortcut.2.*.au3=
command.save.before.2.*.au3=

Those items are blocked.

As for the fold margin:

fold.margin.width=0

On the same topic, what if I wanted to add some functions that are included in the include folder? I have the excelCOM.au3 file, and I like to put that in. Has someone already done this?

You can add aditional include file to the default include path (make sure you keep a copy somewhere else because there were some issues with the uninstaller removing to much files) or have all your own UDF in a seperate directory and point to it by editoing the registry key for the user include directory:

Create a string named "Include" in the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt". It's a semi-colon delimited list of directories that are searched.

Ok, I added the change in the registry, but I'm not following you on your instructions.

where is this information kept?

Second, I still do not understand how to add the functions to Scite. It is very confusing.

Do I need to make changes to the au3.keywords, or something else? I'm lost here

:lmao:

What have you exactly done ?

What value did you put in the registry?

Where are your own include files located?

What do you want to add ? the auto complete and calltips ? (If so then open the Helpfile and read up on User CallTips)

yes, I wanted to add the user completes and call tips. I looked in the help file. It has everything I need. Thanks.

I need to remember to read a little more closely to the included help stuff.

:lmao: myself
