Auto-Include Script

Recommended Posts


Okay, This is a really simple script i wrote that copies a UDF .au3 file to your autoIt directory's "Include" Folder. The app lets you set which directory to copy to and adds a shell option so that when you right click on any .au3 file there is an option to /Include Script. Once the settings are set, whick you only have to do once, it copies the file.

Installation Process!

1. Download my compiled .exe file. (you can compile it yourself also.)

2. Run it, it will detect that it is the first run and allow you to set some options, then it will register the Include option and copy itself to your Windows Directory then exit.

3. Now when you right-click on any .au3 file there should be an option called "Include Script". Click this and it will ask you for your AutoIt Directory. It should be correctly auto detected. If not change it. Now it should be all ready for quick including!

NOTE: It will overwrite existing files, so make sure if you have another UDF of the same name to rename the file you wish to copy!

NOTE: Pressing Ctrl+Shift+X will reset the first run setting and the AU3 dir setting, so they can be reset if youre autoit dir changes.

Thats all for now folks!

Update v1.1:

Added: A quick thing I forgot, lets you open the include directory after it copies the file.
