Is There Going To Be A Help File For The Ie.au3

17 posts in this topic

Topic

I love the udf but I just don't understand so many things about it. If there was a help file there would be less basic question. some of the commands don't have properly detailed parameters and some I haven't even heard of.

Is there any talk about this, and if so will it be in added to the beta help file???

Thanks

Sigh... yes that's the plan and the work has begun - but I can't promise a timeline.

The new IE UDFs pending Dale's approval

Removed by request.

An example for _IEGetProperty that Dale and myself made.

Edit:Added version number (look in the window title)

Had some time today to work on it a little more. Updated last post with what I have so far.

So far I have all the Core, Frame, Link, Image, and Body Function complete.

Fabulous! What a great start.

If you're willing to keep going, let's figure out how to collaborate on it so that I can add usage notes and more examples. Also, are you using the default template for UDF libraries? I have that from JdeB.

Just one request so far, if you could please change your default IE object variable from $o_IE to $oIE so that it is consistent with all of the examples I have posted for the UDF to date. As a convention I've used $oIE, $oFrame, $oForm, $oTable etc. The $o_ is part of the coding convention for UDF's.

Thanks much...

Dale

I would definitely be willing to finish them up. I'll PM you my email so we can further discuss the additions.

Also, are you using the default template for UDF libraries? I have that from JdeB.

Actually I just downloaded a freeware program called HelpNDoc and tried to make them as close to the others as possible. The default templates would help out a lot. Also what program do they use to create/edit them?

Edit: Updated my first post.

The guidelines for UDF files and helpfiles are all here:

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/...F_Standards.htm (there is a link in the first post of the pinned UDF topic at the top of the Scripts and Scraps forum). I don't know anything else about the helpfile creation process other than what is listed there.

The Autoit3 helpfile creation is fully automated with several scripts. They take the function.txt files as the source to build the HTML files in a standard way. The example.au3 files are also converted to HTML and the lot is merged together into the final HTML page for each function. Then Index and TOC are updated with all available Functions and the CHM is created with the standard microsoft software "HTML Help Workshop".

I just wanted to give an update on the progress. JdeB, Dale, and myself are working together to get these finished. I almost have all the help file documentation ready to be compiled and reviewed by Dale. I believe Dale is working on some additional notes and examples that will be added. I'm hoping to have everything finished by the end of the week.

I think I've finally gotten all the documentation finished! I sent another update to JdeB today, so when he gets those added and compiled I'll have Dale look them over to make sure everythings good. From there all we are waiting on is some examples and any additions Dale wants to make.

I'm updating my first post again with the latest. I'm also including the new IE2.au3 which is pending Dales approval, and an example that Dale and myself made for _IEGetProperty.

I've asked big_daddy to remove the IE2.au3 file in his earlier post. It includes some small enhancements and it syncs with his helpfile, but I am concerned about getting multiple code sources and getting out of sync.

I am readying another release that will be out later this week that includes some more significant enhancements as well as some contributions from Larry and Valik.

So, make good use of the helpfile, but please don't bother with the IE2 file at this time.

thanks,

Dale
