ControlGetText with TkChild controls in ANSYS

I am trying to interact with ANSYS Classic, and can't manage to even get the text in the any of the controls. Most of the controls are class type TkChild, but there are a few that are Buttons and a few Static. I am able to use ControlGet to get the style and the HWND, but not text. ACCViewer and Act...

Re: Silent GUI Updating

can you elaborate on how you managed to make the script "reload on unlock" It's been a little while since I worked on my project that was using this, so sorry if I left anything out. 1. put this unlock script in your library: http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/5063-detecting-the-unlock-computer-...

Re: Silent GUI Updating

I used something like this pretty successfully: /board/topic/64504-running-a-script-amongst-multiple-users-from-a-network-drive/#entry407418 Many users never logged off at night though, just locked windows, so the program would never reload. To solve this I had it reload on unlock if it hadn't yet s...

Here they are without the comment char, but this breaks the script.  `[email protected]#$%^&*()-=_+[]\{}|;':",./<>?
It doesn't happen with this test case for me, but it just happened when I downloaded this.

If you are not using Windows DLL Calls or OnMessage, but are interested, this is a great way to learn .

Re: File In/-OutPut Virtualization

What I would like is a way for scripts which use a settings file (INI or whatever) to be able to "write" to the INI file without using the disk. EasyIni should work for you. Your ini is loaded into an object, you work with that iniobject changing and getting values, but it doesn't save to disk unti...

Re: Classes in AHK, a dissection

Thank you GeekDude! This has cleared up a lot of questions I had.

Coco, thank you for your excellent work! Since you created both this and a JSON module , and they both seem to share the same goal of saving and loading objects, can you explain why I might use one over the other? the escape sequence part goes over my head, but this seems like SerDes is a better sol...

Re: Weird result with RegExReplace

thanks kon. I was mistakenly thinking that replacement text shouldn't have any bearing on the regex part. I've always avoided the backreferences stuff, seemed to complicated for me at this point. My replacement text is always pulled from whats in the clipboard, so sometimes it contains $, and someti...

Weird result with RegExReplace

I since switched to stringreplace and it works fine, but I had originally used RegExReplace because I was rushing and not thinking about it. But I'm just curious, why does the following code remove the "$2" from the replacement text? my_replacement_text := "$2254.43" my_old_text := "The price will b...

Saving and re-populating arrays on reload

anyone have good ideas on saving info stored in objects when you close your script, when you want that info available next time you run it?

Re: Many small functions vs. a few large functions

I think bobc119 does it that way out of necessity. I don't like it but do it too. Gui event, timers or menus all point to labels, not functions. yeah exactly. Most of my functions run from hotkeys or buttons. It's usually best practice to keep functions down to about 20 lines of code. Wish I had le...
