jpm, I can test and document both tomorrow depending on what Jon says about this issue

G'night

you should say g'morning . I am in France :whistle:

I did a test. I appear to do the same so we may want to remove one, nevertheless the StringFormat is working the sameway as the Sprintf Windows/C API

Do what you feel.

The example in the HotKeySet has an error in it:

SplashTextOn("myMsgScreen", "Paused")

WinShow("pauseSpecialScrn", "", @SW_HIDE)

Maybe we can update it with this one , since we now can truly pause a script with the fix in the last update.

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")

While 1;infinite loop
   sleep(100)
      if not winexists("pauseSpecialScrn", "Running") then 
         SplashTextOn("pauseSpecialScrn", "Running")
      EndIf
  ; stuff to do goes here ...
Wend

Func TogglePause()
    $Paused = NOT $Paused
    while $Paused
      if not winexists("pauseSpecialScrn", "Pausing") then 
         SplashTextOn("pauseSpecialScrn", "Pausing")
      EndIF
      sleep(100)
    Wend
    Splashoff()
EndFunc

Func Terminate()
   Splashoff()
   $mrc=Msgbox(4,"Cancel Execution?","Your pressed ESC. Do you want to cancel the Program?")
   if $mrc = 6 then Exit
EndFunc

I'm not uploading any fixes tonight, but see the To-Do List

Also, another idea for an appendix entry:  List of Error Codes. Eh?

Great idea but where can we get them all? Right now I need the error codes for RegSvr32 and can't find them. I would be happy if I could just verify the code for "Success".

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Could we please have more examples under the new and cool StringFormat() function?

I'm not at all fluent in C, and a few clever examples would be really really helpful to people like me. :iamstupid: .. perhaps an example per formatting feature?

Also .. what's the difference between the types d and i ..? :whistle:

I update the doc to have the complete description I still need to take time to find good example. Perhaps CyberSlug have good ideas :whistle:

For the i,d that's in the doc from AutoIt stand point they do the same.

I leave that in case a C guy is using one or the other.

I'll should have another batch ready soon, pending Jon's judgment of some bug reports.

Jon, could you integrate by Feb8 doc fixes?  (Or are you waiting until the new batch is ready?)

I had. I think.

Edit: No, nevermind.

With all the questions about how to check array size, how about putting UBound in the See Also section of Dim? And putting Dim in the See Also of UBound?

Good point, Nutster.

I've also noticed a lot of questions about variables inside of strings. (People put the $var inside the string instead of concatenating it with &)

I should be getting back around to doc updates soon :whistle:

Random function:

The period, 219937-1, and the order of equidistribution... should read

The period, 2<sup>19937</sup>-1, and the order of equidistribution...

Other docs changes will be based on what people decide to do with Random.

I found a problem in the ControlCommand docs (3.0.93). The table reads:

"GetLineCount", "" Returns # of lines in an Edit

"GetLineCount", "" Returns the line # where the caret is of an Edit

when it should be:

"GetLineCount", "" Returns # of lines in an Edit

"GetCurrentLine", "" Returns the line # where the caret is of an Edit

just saw this one in FileGetDate:

$array[3] = hour (range 01 - 23)

shouldn't that be:

$array[3] = hour (range 00 - 23)

Thanks for all the replies so far. I see that Jon is pushing for a Feb 28 release date, so I'll get working on doc updates.

- RegRead/RegWrite require keyname to be ALL CAPS

- HotKeySet--note that Num/Caps/ScrollLock will still toggle state if captured by HotKeySet

- Send / ControlSend notes.... *waves to Valik*

- check about FileReadLine/FileWriteLine

- other new functions (ToolTip, WinGetCaretPos)

- AutoItSetOption....

- ToolTip lacks multi-line support

IMPORTANT--hope this makes sense:

Tell Jon that all folder icons in the help file contents pane need pages linked to them. "Using AutoIt"--the very first folder--needs this. For the very longest time, I was clicking the plus sign next to the folder instead of the folder itself, and I didn't realize there was a page of "a complete list of the keywords available in AutoIt"!!!

I also need to update the TO-DO list!
