Re: SETTIMER definition is not complete

swagfag So, do you think the definition should be: Causes a piece of code the timer is meant to execute to be launched automatically and repeatedly at a specified time interval. Isn't that rather ridiculous? And SUBROUTINE does refer to labels (although a subroutine is certainly much more than just...

SETTIMER definition is not complete

SETTIMER states:
Causes a subroutine to be launched automatically and repeatedly at a specified time interval.
This is incomplete. It should read:
Causes a subroutine, a function or a function object to be launched automatically and repeatedly at a specified time interval.

Re: [Game] Tetris Windows 7+

Another issue: Around the board area is a VERY VERY thin dark blue line. I didn't even know it was there till I made the board the larger size. I looked at the code and have no idea how to make that border thicker and a brighter color.

Any advice would be greatly apprciated.

Re: [Game] Tetris Windows 7+

The entire board is not displayed when I use this tetris script. I commented out the single -DPISCALE option and that helped, but did not solve all the problems. With DPISCALE off, most of the instructions on the left side of the board are not visible. With DPISCALE in effect, the QUEUE elements som...

Listvar displays 2 nearly identical variables differently

My script includes two variables, prevlist and repeat_search. They are IDENTICAL except repeat_search does not include the last integer. (They don't stay so identical if you wonder about my programming style.) When I use OPEN and display the variables, PREVLIST is displayed as expected (on a single ...

Re: Sudoku

I see you've made some changes. I would like to suggest the following changes: 1. Add a sizing border. Even though the gui doesn't change when sized, I like the thicker, more distinct and more visible border. Visuality is important once you get my age!

Re: Determining when an input field is available

I would blame it on your GoToMeeting software and ask the vendor to change it. You have two different windows, but, presumably they have the same title. (Of course, wonderful Windows 10 doesn't have window titles showing--how can people use Win 10? But, you said you used the window examiner) If the ...

Re: Run-command doesn't activate an application Topic is solved

#vkc0::

this is basically START button + the TILDE character. The tilde is the capitalized accent grave. So, your hotkey requires START + SHIFTKEY + `.

Is that your problem?

Re: Button width (and height) calculation

You must realize, in terms of setting the height and word wrap, that the text may be wrapped (always wrapped, I don't know, didn't test) but simply may not be visible if the height is not sufficient.

Re: Button width (and height) calculation

1. This certainly points out that the documentation for -Wrap (and word wrapping in general) is sparse, at best. Nowhere does it discuss how the wrapping is done (splitting a SPACE or, I assume, TAB positions. And if it Splits at other positions they are not defined. 2. One can force the width of 10...

Re: Silently fails to open file for editing when already open in VSCode Topic is solved

If the VSCode window--I presume there is one, since I know nothing about VSCode--is INACTIVE, does "edit this script" make it the active window? That's all I would expect to happen.

Re: #MaxThreadsPerHotkey rejects starting of new thread (when limit not reached yet) Topic is solved

The code does work correctly when #MaxThreadsBuffer is ON. However, one must be quick as a bunny. Since the MaxThreadsBuffer ON only preserves the buffer for 1 second, one (most easily the last) msgbox must be closed quickly after hitting the hotkey the 4th time. #MaxThreadsPerHotkey 3 #MaxThreadsBu...

@PeterCm: I see this as you misinterpretting the placement of the RETURN statement that is usually used to mark the end of the auto-execute sectioin. This RETURN, however, is not required. Your auto-execute section is ended by your first HOTKEY definition. So, if you move your RETURN statment to abo...

Re: Hardspace: Shipbreaker - Script Stops Wroking

No idea about your game; however, one GUESS I have is that your are inadvertantly hitting the NUMLOCK key. Try coding each key to work with NUMLOCK on or off. For example: Numpad1::Z NumpadEnd::Z Also, why are you not sending the desired keystroke? You might try Numpad1:: send,Z NumpadEnd:: send,Z A...
