Re: your personal AutoHotkey style guide

NOT, AND, OR v. !, &&, || I find '!' more readable (and more elegant) than 'NOT'. '!' and '&&' are shorter than 'NOT' and 'AND', and don't ever require spaces. This can make complicated formulae/expressions far more readable. The symbol versions... Goodness, there are clearly untapped (by me!) dept...

Re: your personal AutoHotkey style guide

I'm loving this thread - learning so much from you all. Style is great and, although I am a live and let live kinda guy, I do feel strongly that consistency and maintainability are over-ridingly important (as others have pointed out). Anyway, that said, I do have a specific question: Why do most her...

Pointers to program structure/architecture concepts?

Hi, I've mainly used AHK to write small productivity apps. I have little programming experience, but due to AHK's excellent documentation and the willingness of forum members to contribut so much over the years, I've managed to muddle through. But I now find I'm looking at larger scripts, maybe seve...

Re: AHK Studio

Hi Maestrith, wondering if you could help with the AHK Studio debugging issue I report above (21-Jun-19)? It's probably me doing it wrong so if you could help clarify that would be tremendous. To get round this at the moment I'm debugging in Scit4AHK, and running AHK Studio in parallel for code chan...

Re: Level-up your AutoHotkey coding by using AHK Studio!

Re: "AHK Studio Tutorials 35. Adding a Breakpoint" by Joe Glines: Just to add these observations: 1. As well as manually typing in breakpoints (of the form ;*[breakpointname] ), you can also set a breakpoint by clicking the margin between the line numbering and the editing window (like Scit4ahk). 2....

Ok Joe, thanks for the input. Understand totally about not having the time....I'll post in this topic as and when I have observations on AHKStudio that (hopefully!) add to your excellent videos.

Re: Level-up your AutoHotkey coding by using AHK Studio!

Joe Glines no probs....in this topic I wasn't thinking that this would be a learning experience for AHK Scripting (though I am always in need of this ;) ;) ), but rather a topic for sharing experience and understanding of how to use AHK Studio. I'm a big fan of AHK Studio but struggle sometimes to ...

Re: Level-up your AutoHotkey coding by using AHK Studio!

Thanks nnnik . I've found maestrith to be enormously helpful on the other topic you pointed out, but with more detailed issues. This topic seems aimed at getting more of an overview of what AHK Studio can do (a huge amount!) and how to achieve it, so it would be something that would benefit from the...

Re: Level-up your AutoHotkey coding by using AHK Studio!

Hi Joe, this is a great topic - thanks so much for the effort. I'm trying hard to get to grips with AHKS - there are bits of it that are fantastic and areas where I'm finding it harder going (probably my ineptness). I've had a quick look through some of the tutorials and learnt some really useful th...

Re: AHK Studio

Hi Maestrith, Sorry for the looong delay in replying on this. I understand being diverted, and that AHK Studio is a 'side-project' (though a damn impressive one). I'm working on learning the debugger. Perhaps you'd be kind enough to offer your thoughts on my take on how to do this with AHKS: 1. Debu...

Re: AHK Studio

Hi Maestrith, I'm back to using AHKS on a small project. I've noticed that when I have several find results in the separate find window, that sometimes using the Jump button takes you to the end of the file, not withstanding that the search string is not at that location. I can't seem to find a rhym...

Re: Profiling tool(s) for autohotkey?

Thanks swafag and vasili111,

Your thoughts much appreciated. I guess that I had hoped that there was something a little more structured to help save me from myself :facepalm: .

I'd be very happy if others had thoughts to help push me along.

Cheers.

Profiling tool(s) for autohotkey?

Forgive me if this is an utter amateur-nonsense question (and do move if I've not posted in the right forum), but....are there tools that can be used to 'profile' an autohotkey script? By 'profiling' I mean work out how much time is spent in various parts of the code, and maybe also give a flow diag...

Hi, I'm about to get a little more time to spend doing enjoyable things...like tinkering with AHK scripts :D. But as only an occasional dabbler I've only just tripped across the whole v2 concept and thread. V2 seems a very laudable effort to me, and I think would help me, as a very poor programmer, ...

Hi Maestrith, Just came back to looking at AHK Studio (and have the latest versions of AHK-S and AHK). I must be stupid, but I can't find how to run the debugger to a breakpoint? I can start the debugger, gain the debug controls by launching the Variable Browser and then I can step through the code ...

Hi Maestrith, I've managed only a little time to test AHK Studio.
