Re: Sorry, this file is infected with a virus

I tried that. Google apparently opens the files and scans them. So I still get the message in the title.

I can't find a link to submit this to google. Does anybody have such a link?

Sorry, this file is infected with a virus

This is the message that comes up when I try to share a link to a AHK.exe file in my google drive. Is there a way to rectify this? I'd like to share my work with my co-workers, but it would be difficult to explain that this "really isn't a virus, trust me" to them. So frustrating that after all thes...

Re: attach hidden command prompt to script in autoexecute section Topic is solved

Thanks! I ended up braking up the lines of code you provided and put part into the autoexecute section, and the rest (slightly modified) into the exit section of my script. This made it so the command line only opens and closes one each time the script is run, instead of each time the command line i...

Re: If AND Statements for multiple variables Topic is solved

Variables in expressions (var) do not need the %var% format

Code: Select all

F6::
vAA := 1 , vBB := 3
vAB := vAA
vBC := vBB
If (vAB = vAA) && (vBC = vBB)
	Msgbox , 0 ,,  cool , 1
else
	Msgbox , 0 ,,  fail , 1
Return

attach hidden command prompt to script in autoexecute section Topic is solved

I'm trying to open a command prompt and hide it so when I run DOS commands I don't get a 'blip' of the command prompt every time. I had the code before, and it was 2 lines long, one line to open the command prompt, the second line hid the command prompt. That hidden command prompt would be used when...

Δ, β, and α converting to "delta", "beta" and "alpha"

I'm trying to convert Δ, β, and α to "delta", "beta" and "alpha", respectively.

The problem I'm having is that in SciTE for AHK:
Δ becomes "?"
α becomes "a"

is there a way to read these greek symbols into AHK with SciTE?

Thanks,

How to know when hotstring is triggered?

Is there any way for my script to know when a hotstring is triggered and which hotstring it is?

I'd like to write a line to a log file every time a hotstring is triggered indicating which hotstring was triggered, but I don't know what my script should "look" for....

Thanks in advance...

I'd be interested in revisiting this. I'm also trying to figure out how to deal with spaces in filenames.

Re: Calling search and replace in MS Words

In case you have several to do at once: MSWordMultiReplace("apple", "banana", "one", "two") MSWordMultiReplace(params*) ; params* can be any number of text pairs the first of the pair being the text to be replaced, the second the replacement text { ; thus ("apple", "banana", "one", "two") will repla...
