Gui constants in Help file

Hello all AU3 team !

As you changed the guicontants.au3, it would be nice to have in HELP file (somewhere !!!), which GUIctrl... to associate with which #include (Like the UDF)

As I am creating a new script I have some difficulties to find which #include goes with which constant.

What you're asking for only makes sense from a broader perspective. You should have no trouble realizing what controls are associated with which file, the only trouble is in knowing the specific name for that file.

The problem, as I see it, is that there is no obvious list of files to #include. For example, there is a break-down by "management" but nowhere is it mentioned what file to #include to use those functions. Only by clicking on a function and reading it's page can you find that information.

I think the following things need done:

  • A "master" page needs to exist listing the name of each file we provide for user's to #include with a link to the relevant description of functions in that file.
  • Each "Management" page that lists all the functions also needs to actually mention the name of the file containing those functions.
  • The UDF documentation should probably be re-organized by file. This might require minor re-formatting as I don't know how well the "Management" concept matches up to file contents.
  • The "master" page can include descriptions of what's in each file in lieu of having separate "Management" sub-categories.

In short, there's no list of files that I can see nor is there a list of what's actually in each file.
