Undo option...

Recommended Posts

Mat

I have a method:

1) On startup write a file to @Scriptdir & "\Undo.txt"

2) Every action writes to the file.

3) on ctrl-z, reads last line and deletes last line too. (so you can do it more than once.)

4) NO REDO FUNCTION

5) On end deletes the file

This works (Just about, and its not too good), but doesn't include redo, and is very sloppy...

my question is...Is there an easier way?

Thanks

Edit: is it also possible to collect typing...eg if i type autoit, ctrl-z removes autoit, not t

You could write every action to an array and let the array grow as needed with ReDim. If you keep an index to the array then every new action adds to the array end of the array and increments the index to point to the last action. Every undo undoes the indexed action and decrements the index. Redo increments the index and repeats the action. A new action increments the index and overwrites anything that might be there so the current index becomes the end of the list so you can't redo after undoing a few steps and then changing what you did next. (Hope that makes sense.)

yep, that makes sense...And it should be a lot easier too...

any idea on how to solve question 2? being able to collect typing poosibly? thats not as neccessary but would be nice...

also @Martin: is this a problem for redim?

The number of dimensions must remain the same, or the old array will be forgotten during the ReDim

Edit: Arrayinsert possibly?

When it says that the number of dimensions vmust remain the same you shouldn't confuse that with the number of elements. For example, you can expand an array like this

Dim $aa[1][2]=[["apples","mips"]];start with 1 row and 2 columns if you lkike to think of it like that

Redim $aa[17][2];change to 17 rows and 2 columns without changing the existing contents

ConsoleWrite($aa[0][0] & @CRLF)
$aa[1][0] = "figs"
$aa[1][1] = "bread"

I'm not sure what you mean about every action but I would stear clear of anything that sounded like a key logger.

Thanks again!!

Every action includes pasting, and deleting etc it is going to be used with an edit control. This isn't a keylogger I'm writing, its a notepad kind of thing with a couple of more specific features.
