Re: Script trigging on unmodified key press

you need to post your code if you want help. secondly, this is probably not a bug. you should start your posts in the "ask for help" forum. If it is truly a bug, you will be told and someone will address that. Nobody likes bugs.

Empty arrays

at https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Objects.htm#Usage is shown the syntax for creating an array: Create an array: Array := [Item1, Item2, ..., ItemN] Array := Array(Item1, Item2, ..., ItemN) Looking at this, it is not clearly evident that Array := [] is valid syntax and is how one creates an empty ar...

Re: String as parameter cannot be read by Run?

Swagfag's original solution is correct. You must have mistyped something, or the problem is your OS. The follwoing works fine under Windows 7. runFolder(pathOfFolder) { Run, %pathOfFolder% } <+^f:: runFolder("C:\Users\" A_UserName "\Desktop") ; FAILED to open my desktop folder return

GUI SUBMIT

GUI SUBMIT doc states: Submit Saves the contents of each control to its associated variable (if any) and hides the window unless the NoHide option is present. This is not exact. It should read: Saves the contents of each INPUT-CAPABLE control ... It omits the proviso (stated at "associated output va...

clarification of a_MyDocuments Topic is solved

AHK documentation at a_MyDocuments defines a_MyDocuments as: The full path and name of the current user's "My Documents" folder. Unlike most of the similar variables, if the folder is the root of a drive, the final backslash is not included (e.g. it would contain M: rather than M:\). What does it me...

Re: Simple shortcut broken after Windows 10 upgrade

there is no reason why this would qualify as a bug. AHK has nothing to do with CREATING the problem. Wonderful Microsoft. Of course, they didn't document this (or did they? ha ha). If it ain't broke, don't fix it. (If it ain't broke, don't update it--that's my take.) So, I'm running Win7 til the day...

Continuation with Left Parenthesis

When starting a continuation section with a left parenthesis, that parenthesis and, optionally, any options for the continuation section, must be the only text on that line, with the exception that it may also be followed by a comment.

this is not stated in the documentation.

Re: SEND command and equal sign

@lexicos - this bit me again, but I figured it out. Above you stated: Tip: The first comma of any command may be omitted (except when the first parameter is blank or starts with := or =, or the command is alone at the top of a continuation section). For example: Code: Select all MsgBox This is ok. M...

Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

I think one of the best points of Imstearn's comment is this The assignment itself looks similar in syntax to the associative array {key:value}, so to make it clear here that method is a reserved word, a highlight for it? The AHKk documentation does not differentiate between RESERVED words, variable...

Re: Is there any way to copy the full text in Active window w/o sending ^a then ^c

you said:
Actually it is not like that.
I should have said my response has only to do (1) with Firefox (I don't use Chrome) and (2) I run Windows 7. If this is something Windows 10 is doing, I have no idea. l I tried Win10. I couldn't stand it.

Re: Font display depends on code technique

basically, it comes down to:

Does AHK parse the command and then substitute variables, or substitute variables and then parse the command?

You have stated it is the former. I'll point this out in documentation suggestions.

Okayk, I'll agree it's not a bug.... But, if you consider the fact that this "behavior" is not documented one might consider it a bug.

1. If you want the script to start by itself when some particular window becomes active, you would a. use a WinWait command to wait for the particular window to exist.

Re: Is there any way to copy the full text in Active window w/o sending ^a then ^c

I don't understand your problem. Why are you clicking anywhere? The only reason I can imagine is that your are ACTIVATING the browser window. Once the window is active, Control + A will select ALL, unless, of course, you have done something to change what Control+A does in your browser. Should your ...

I'd post this in BUGS, but I always get yelled at when it's not a bug. So.... The following script codes a GUI FONT statement two different ways. For all intents and purposes, the results should, IMHO, be the same. They are not. The GUIs displayed show the TEXT field spanning two or three lines when...
