Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

I think the problem thus boils down to this. The GENERAL information about all 3 variable types should be discussed BEFORE the specifics of each variable type. the way it is now written, once I get to the end of reading the section on GLOBAL VARIABLES I get to LOCAL VARIABLES and assume that is the ...

Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

@Helgef: If I can't figure something out by reading the doc, then the doc needs changing, I am stupid or the doc is too complicated for me to understand. The latter two are not the case here. You pointed out my question: Can I have more than one GLOBAL/LOCAL/STATIC statement in a function? Let me re...

Syntax for GLOBAL, LOCAL and STATIC

The documentation for GLOBAL, LOCAL and STATIC commands (statements?) is not very clear. 1. There is no EXPLICIT syntax shown for these statements From reading the documentation, I do not know a. Can I have more than one GLOBAL/LOCAL/STATIC statement in a function? b. Can such statements define more...

Re: Tray ICON color and pausing

Okay, so that was pretty easy. Now for the really tough--probably impossible--case. Sometimes, I pause a script from my QUERY script (which I really ought to share). In any case, it pauses a (different!) script issuing PostMessage, 0x111, 65306,,, %wintitle% ; pause (1) The script to be paused can't...

Re: Tray ICON color and pausing

Thanks for the replies

@JoeWinograd: Thanks for pointing me to your post. I didn't know about the "1" option of the Menu, tray, icon command that freezes the icon and causes PAUSE to not change the icon!

Tray ICON color and pausing

I use my own icons for my 5 scripts that are continually running. When I pause any of these, it's icon changes to RED AITCH. Doc says: The color of the tray icon changes from green to red whenever the script's current thread is in a paused state. While this is true, the color of the icon is not what...

Re: Context menu/ Hotkeys conflict re. menuitemname ampersands

I understand all that. You're missing my point. My ONLY point is what the documentation says. Let me try a different route. I believe To underline one of the letters in a menu item's name, precede that letter with an ampersand (&). When the menu is displayed, such an item can be selected by pressing...

Re: bug?

@helgef :\
I don't get it. I don't see what explains why

Code: Select all

:*:`::: this fails
and

Code: Select all

:*::::  this fails too
both fail. I see using the HOSTRING function as just a workaround.

Re: Context menu/ Hotkeys conflict re. menuitemname ampersands

@superfoodbar You have missed my point. You say "The functionality of being able to select a menu item via keypress is a global windows feature, not a feature created by AHK. " Indeed, that is NOT WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. I am talking about, and again I quote, "the ability to assign a key via ampers...

Context menu/ Hotkeys conflict re. menuitemname ampersands

My script has a GUI and I create a custom context menu, shown when right clicking the GUI. My script also has numerous hotkeys, most of which are single letters. Many of my context menu items contain "shortcuts", underlined characters to facilitate that menu item's selection. When I present the cont...

Filedelete and recycle bin

I think FILEDELETE doc should have a note indicating that files, if the volume on which they are found has a recylce bin ENABLED, are not sent to the recycle bin. This leads me to ask, if a volume's recycle bin is NOT ENABLED (that is, it's recycle location is marked "Don't move files to the recycle...

Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

@Imstearn I would clean it up just a little and fix the grammatical error. There is no reason to define block here. If more than one line of statements IS specified for execution, those lines must be enclosed in a block. However, In the case of a conditional expression followed by other conditional ...

Re: Single line hotkeys

Sorry, about my entry. I misunderstood the issue. Now that I know now what it is, I think the second line of the if claused should simply be flagged as an error by the interpreter or compiler. Why not? It would make debugging so much simpler. Why make the user trudge through the documentation to fin...

Re: Single line hotkeys

When written thusly, an error is produced: z = %1% return ^+a:: If (Z := !Z) msgbox true Z = %Z% else msgbox false z = %z% return ^+b:: If (Z := !Z) msgbox true Z = %Z% else ; error shown for this "hanging" else msgbox false z = %z% Return I fail to understand how this can not be considered an error.

where are older ahk versions?

I have uncovered what I believe is a bug in 1.1.31. I can not find where to download 1.1.30 so I may test to confirm it is a new bug. And please, if you say GITHUB, I tried there and could not find it there either. If it is there, where is it there?
