Re: Can't unsubscribe from a topic

Many thanks for getting back joedf , esp. when there seem to be other more important forum issues. I'm not sure what is going on, but after having gone through the Manage Subscriptions page (and thanks for pointing that out), the topic settings drop down menu now seems to behave differently and more...

Can't unsubscribe from a topic

Hi, I've reccently subscribed to more forums with the aim of becoming more 'AHK aware'. As expected I get more email notifcations of new topics (good), but I can't seem to unsubscribe from those I'm less interested in (bad). I've tried unsubscribing 2 ways: 1. From the topic settings image.png I mus...

Changing comment symbol and hotkey

For info: When I started with AHK I used SciTE4AHK. I now mostly use AHK Studio. But I got used to the SciTE4AHK comment symbol ;~ and the comment line toggle hotkey Ctrl+q . So how to emulate this in AHK Studio? 1. Change Comment Symbol In AHK Studio, hit alt+m for the 'Omni-Search', and search for...

Re: Close

This means thats normal ? I cant believe ... ...more likey (I hope) that there is an option somewhere in AHKS to toggle this on and off, and I just haven't found it yet. AHKS is amazing in many regards. But there are so many options most of which mean nothing to me that I'm sure this is a hurdle to...

Re: Lintalist 1.9 Searchable interactive lists to copy & paste text with plugins

Thanks @list,
@DaveT1 you can use the clipboard contents in snippets by using [[clipboard]], there is the https://lintalist.github.io/#QuickSearchHotkey option and of course you can Ctrl+C, Open GUI, and Ctrl+V. Not exactly as you describe but should get you started.
I will take a look.

cheers.

Indents for braces after Loop, if etc

FYI: a little tip I wish I'd known before: I uses the GNU style for indenting and braces, eg: while (x == y) { something (); somethingelse (); } On return after the while (or if, loop, etc) , inserting one { means that AHKS will automatically insert the matching closing brace. But for me these are t...

Re: Lintalist 1.9 Searchable interactive lists to copy & paste text with plugins

Hi, This looks like an impressive tool. I've not yet tried it but have done some reading around, so apologies if this is blantantly obvious, but: is it possible to use LintaList as a clipboard tool? By this I mean: copy selected text from another app (eg., notepad), have this automatically added to ...

Re: Is there a comparison post or article about editors?

Not that I'm aware of, but I'd love to see such a thing. Is it possible to put something on here that would allow users to collaborate on? Personnally, I love the hover-over-var-for-value in SciTE4AHK, but really rate the navigability and productivity features in AHK Studio. I currently do most of m...

Re: AHK Studio: "create duplicate line" command?

Also you can re-assign hotkeys in AHKStudio - 'alt+m' and search for '@hot'. This will give 'Edit Hotkeys' at the top of the list....

Re: Text file Diff and Merge

Very many thanks BoBo and Hoppfrosch, really appreciate your thoughts. My googling had taken me to similar places, but, and demonstrating my total ignorance: Why not use the same tools on Windows as on Unix? I can do this? Do I simply take the .exe and invoke it via cmd console (eventually via AUTOH...

Text file Diff and Merge

Hi, Hope this is the right forum......I'm wondering where I might find Windows utilities for: a) producing and storing the differences between text files (are these called 'patch' files?), and b) subsequently merging these difference files to recover original or intermediate files? Both to run silen...

Re: Sort Sort Sort Topic is solved

The helpfile on DropDownList (or DDL) says "Specify the word Sort to automatically sort the contents of the list alphabetically". The list in your image is sorted alphabetically.

Maybe something as shown in https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/49411-dropdownlist-how-to-get-it-to-sort/ would help?

Re: How to change background color of tooltip

Try googling "autohotkey tooltip background color" - several hits returned.

This one https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=4777 by Lexikos looks promising.

Re: <GuiControlGet, var, Hwnd> doesn't return the Hwnd?

Thanks just me . A_GUIControl seems to give the same as GuiControlGet, NameOfLVReturnedOnRightClick, FocusV , ie., the name of the ListView's associated var. In my application these ListViews don't need any associated vars, so I plan not to use them to keep the code simple for the future-me to under...

Re: Mouse cursor not moving

Worked fine in SciTE4Autohotkey in debug mode, but not otherwise!

I added #SingleInstance force at the top and CoordMode, Mouse, Screen before SysGet and it works fine now.

I have been using autohotkey for a while now, but I've never had to work with arrays and strings combined until now.. I need to take a single string such as "123.456.789.0" and turn it into "123.4", "56.7", and "89.0". The way I get the string is the decimal is always the second to last index to th...
