Does anyone have a script that would make it easier to post a script to the forum?

I'm thinking it would be nice to have something that would:

1. Copy everything on the current screen.

2. Add [autoit to the beginning and [/autoit to the end.

3. Remove all lines that start with some special character like ;;

There is some code that would be nice to keep in a script but not publish to the forum like msgbox lines.

4. Put it into the clipboard all ready to paste into the forum.

If someone has done something like this I'd rather not re-invent the wheel. If they haven't I'll tackle it.

Thank you,

Docfxit

I've seen most of your stuff, and you probably have great intentions... however

due to some people using a program like that here, the Autoit team frowns on those now

I don't think you are going to get much help on this one

Thank you for the reply...

I don't want to make anyone frown. I was thinking people would like it.

What part of this prompted them to frown?

Thank you,

if the code is posted here, others may "abuse" it

they just set the thing to post automatically...

Well scratch that idea. I wasn't thinking that automatic. I was just thinking it would make my life a little easier.

Thank you,

Is there a way for someone to delete this thread? I'd rather not give anyone ideas that are frowned upon.

Thank you,

i don't see anything on there that would be frowned upon........

seems like a good idea actually.

it wasnt going to autopost....maybe re-read his post again to see exactly what he wants? I don't see anything bad on there, or anything that could be abused.

Thank you for your comments.

I am not interested in autoposting anything.

I'll try to clarify a little.

When I'm in SciTE with a script showing I would like to have an icon in the toolbar that

1. Would copy the script

2. Add [autoit to the beginning and [/autoit to the end.

3. Remove all lines that start with some special characters like ;;

There is some code that would be nice to keep in a script but not publish to the forum like msgbox lines.

4. Put it into the clipboard all ready to paste into the forum.

I have most of it written now. I have a couple more things to figure out.

I am not going to share it in the forum unless everyone thinks it's ok.

I am not interested in making something that will help people abuse this or any other forum.

I personally think it would be a nice permanent addition to SciTE.

Thank you,

hmm....well you could just post it now, as i'm pretty sure Valuater misunderstood you, but if you really want to wait for him to post back, go ahead....not in any rush :P

Thank you for the offer. I'd really rather not byte the hand that feeds me. It won't do me much good to post it. I think a lot of other people would like it. But I don't know that for sure. If he feels there is a chance of someone miss using it it's not worth it. Maybe the author of SciTE will see it's value, chime in and make it permanent so no one will be able to modify the script.

Of course I'm a beginner with all this stuff. If I can make it anyone can.

Thank you,

im pretty sure it would be easy with some hotkey , and controlgettext and just make a variable between '[auotit]' & @crlf $var & @crlf & '[/autoit]'
