Re: How to simply encrypt a piece of text without using a password? Topic is solved

I use AHK scripts everyday with encryption that is based on unique properties of my computer so that the scripts will only execute correctly on my computer. The unique properties of my computer is the key to the encryption. The scripts have lots of secret stuff but I never have to enter a password ...

Re: [GAME] Snake

Thanks for sharing this. I have a few issues with the responsiveness of the keyboard but it's a cool proof of concept of what AHK is capable of.

Re: FindText unable to determine if box is checked

I spent more time monkeying around and found a pattern that worked using the ColorPos2Two method that looks like it inverses the pixels. Even with that method I had to adjust the Similarity setting and test multiple times. I'm still puzzled why FindText had so much trouble detecting a difference bet...

FindText unable to determine if box is checked

I'm using FindText with the Find dialog of Notepad++ . I want to determine if a check box contains a check and if not, mark it. I've used FindText a lot and find it unusual to have a false positive. I've tried adjusting various tolerances (randomly) and can't find a way to only detect the unmarked b...

Re: Want to add animated GIF to post but "Broken Link for safety" appears

My GIF doesn't show the 'place inline' option, probably due to the size. As you saw in my last email, the attachment didn't show up at all, though there was no warning that it was too big, I was short on permissions, or anything. The Status was just a green bar. It stayed that way a few minutes. I w...

Well if its not a .gif but instead an html that you linked why do you expect it to work?
I tried using it as an attachment, which didn't work, as well as a link to Google Drive, which I incorrectly assumed was a pointer to a file.

Re: Want to add animated GIF to post but "Broken Link for safety" appears

So, what I think I'm hearing here is: 1) I need to have more posts, roughly 30. 2) I need to make sure the link is to a source where it is still a .GIF and now a link to a viewer (or whatever Google Drive gave me for my example). 3) Uploading an image may work instead of using a link, but I can't te...

Want to add animated GIF to post but "Broken Link for safety" appears

I want to share a script and I've made an animated GIF that shows what it does. My image is stored on Google Drive with a public link. When I put the link between img tags and preview the post, it says "Broken Link for safety" and does not show the image. I have seen other posts on this site with an...

Re: Faster Image Search in Active Window - A wrapper function for FindText

I'm still not sure what you are asking. My wrapper function accepts the err1 and err0 parameters and just passes them on to the the official FindText() function. If you want to pass them in a different order they you would need to adjust the code. There are some parameters that I'm not accepting and...

Re: FindText - Capture screen image into text and then find it Topic is solved

ricardo231 @Ben if I use your code I can search the converted image on any screen without failing? If you have a monitor to the left of your primary monitor the default code will fail. FindText( 0, 0 , A_ScreenWidth, A_ScreenHeight, 0, 0, Text) 0,0 is the top-left coordinate of the primary monitor,...

Could the tolerance percentage be changed?
Can you elaborate on your request? I didn't mention tolerance or percentage in my post so I'm not sure what you're asking for.

Re: FindText - Capture screen image into text and then find it Topic is solved

I want to report a quirk or minor bug in the Capture interface. I want to point this out in case there people are experimenting with Capture and Test and can't figure out why it seems inconsistent (like I did). If I am using multiple monitors and I search for an image on another monitor, the boilerp...

Faster Image Search in Active Window - A wrapper function for FindText

FindText is a function similar to the AHK built-in command "ImageSearch", but it can convert images into strings, written into the script without saving as an external image, so it is easier to use than "ImageSearch". https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=17834 I am really impressed wit...

Hotstrings active with a specific URL

I setup hotstrings to help me log in to a website I'm building. The hotstrings allow me to press one letter and log in as a user matching a role that I want to test. After I log in and move to a different URL, I don't want the hotstrings to be active. The title of the website does not change. Only t...
