On Screen Ruler Using GDIPlus Graphics

I've updated the MouseMeasure.ahk script to use GDIPlus Graphics. The graphics are much smoother.

Re: Making a ruler and other measuring device. Topic is solved

I suspect that learning how to use Arrays is the secret to your solution. You can then save an unlimited number of data points, make the needed calculations, and use ControlSend (or one of the similar commands) to insert the calculated text statements directly into a document. That will allow you th...

Re: Making a ruler and other measuring device. Topic is solved

Hi Jack, This worked beautifully. I tried to modify the code so that I could get two positions and hopefully get the clipboard to output at the end. This measures 45 x 23 cm. Or this measures 44 x 33 x 22 cm. How would I go about adding more dimensions to make a final sentense. Two would be great b...

Send Text to Tagged Edit Windows

Initially, I thought that I would post this in the Scripts and Functions forum, but decided that this window tagging script acts more as a technique than a standalone script. While I offer a couple of uses for setting up target windows (collecting reference text and quick testing AutoHotkey code), o...

I've expanded the examples for the RegExHotstringsApp.ahk script to include examples for word swapping, auto-dup word delete, repeat word/phrase and word cap RegEx Hotstrings. Each of these examples makes good use of the Regular Expressions (RegEx) capability of the RegExHotstrings() function. http:...

Beginner's Guide to Writing AutoHotkey User-Defined Functions

User-defined functions are one of the most important tools in AutoHotkey, yet beginners with no programming experience can have difficulty with the concepts. Functions save time by storing repetitive code in modules for use in numerous situations. A number of years ago, I wrote a blog in response to...

Re: Spelling in a GUI edit field - on Swedish words

I checked the link and it works for me. However, I wouldn't know anything about spelling correction in Swedish. My page only discusses words commonly misspelled in English. It's comprised of a set of thousands of Hotstrings.

I decided to do something with the keypad center button. Why waste it? I added a 16-pixel jump from top-left to bottom-right to the center keypad button (5) for cropping square images in the same increments as icons (16x16, 32x32, 48x48, etc). Use Shift+NumPad5 to reverse direction. http://www.compu...

Re: Selection List Menu for Activating Currently Open Windows

Good idea! Not everyone uses the same Unicode level. I switched the script to using the pipe ( | ) since the script already strips out extras.

Commonly, AutoHotkey users employ the Run, Mailto: command when automating Windows e-mail. In conjunction with o...
