Autoit "console" for Scite?

13 posts in this topic

HI,

I haven't been able to find a utility for ScIte that lets you paste in some code and run it, so if I want to test something I have to start a new file and save it as .au3. Does such a tool exist? It's probably been right under my nose but I can't find it.

Thanks a lot.

Yep and its called test.au3 :) I have a file called test.au3 on my desktop, I use it in case i need to test someting alone :whistle:

If you want to take this a little longer, you could create an application, that when "activated" shows a window, where you can put code in, then it saves it to a file, and runs that file...

Hey, that's MY test.au3! Fork it over!

Well thanks for the response. ScItE is such a swiss-army knife for Auto-it that I thought certain there would be a console. I've been getting by with a test.au3, and even went so far as to automate it with a few ScITe buttons. One simply opens it, and one grabs clipboard or highlighted text, opens test.au3 (if need be), clears, pastes, runs, and then returns focus to the original window. I also added my own save button that checks for ".au3" in the title and if not, it populates the Save-As box with it and sets the cursor to home. Prior to that I'd saved about 100 scripts without an extension. You'd laugh if you saw my ScITe buttons, they are a true testimony to one man's laziness.

Thanks again. :)

I use an addon tool for Scite to make temp scripts so clutter is reduced. If you are happy with the script then you can use "Save As" to keep worthy scripts. Wil not fix your file extension issue but programs that do not know what extension you want (except for M$) will need you to add the extention.

I run it from a subfolder to Scite.exe but should run from same dir as Scite.exe as well.

Trying to make sence of the code. :whistle:

Works fine to open a script, but for some reason the delete script function doesn't work. Any ideas? I'm going to add this to the SciTe toolbar package, so I want to make sure it works.

Thoughts?

I have it setup as a Scite tool so it will pass the parameter of the current active file that is open for the file delete action to take place. Perhaps the filepath is not being passed with your setup?

My setting in user options file.

# 46 My TempScript (Custom)
command.46.*=$(autoitexe) "$(tools)\TempScript.au3" "$(FilePath)"
command.subsystem.46.*=1
command.name.46.*=My TEMP Script
command.shortcut.46.*=Alt+S
command.save.before.46.*=0
command.quiet.46.*=1

You need a filepath to pass this condition.

Case $button_delete
            If $CMDLINE[0] And FileExists($CMDLINE[1]) Then

:)

I changed the user options as you suggested. Still nothing. I think I understand what it is supposed to do, but for some reason, the statement:

Case $button_delete
            If $CMDLINE[0] And FileExists($CMDLINE[1]) Then

is not getting passed. It will make the file, just won't delete it.

Try adding the settings with the variables that I also use.

# AutoIt executable
autoitexe=$(SciteDefaultHome)\..\AutoIt3.exe
# Tools folder
tools=$(SciteDefaultHome)\tools

# 46 My TempScript (Custom)
command.46.*=$(autoitexe) "$(tools)\TempScript.au3" "$(FilePath)"
command.subsystem.46.*=1
command.name.46.*=My TEMP Script
command.shortcut.46.*=Alt+S
command.save.before.46.*=0
command.quiet.46.*=1

A LITTLE CHANGE...

Thanks, overlooked that bug as my setup always uses the previous Case so it always worked fine. :whistle:
