Re: [v2] Numeric Strings Can Be Falsey

I see. While I personally don't think this is a good idea, I can see how this tradeoff was made. In my opinion, the best thing would be to have a dedicated Boolean type so that a cast (be it automatic or not) from a string to a bool could be handled differently than a cast from a number to a bool. T...

[v2] Numeric Strings Can Be Falsey

When a value is required to be either true or false, a blank or zero value is considered false and all other values are considered true. This same sentence is present in the v1 docs, however, the behavior between the two versions differs. In v2, a numeric string is, seemingly, evaluated numerically...

Re: Custom Libraries of Functions issue Topic is solved

I see. So for "directory-of-the-currently-running-AutoHotkey.exe\Lib\" the \lib must be in the directory of the script. No, for that it must be placed in the “directory-of-the-currently-running-AutoHotkey.exe”, not the script. But there are two more Lib locations, one of which is the script's locat...

Re: Custom Libraries of Functions issue Topic is solved

I actually didn't even need the path in the function because the lib folder was in the same folder as the script. So to test, I moved the lib folder somewhere else. You can't move a Lib folder. There are three locations where AHK will look for library files, as described here . Any other location m...

Re: Custom Libraries of Functions issue Topic is solved

You have written two MsgBoxes, so naturally there will be two MsgBoxes shown.
It looks like you want the function to return something:

Code: Select all

FuncMsg(str)
{
	return str " has"
}

Re: [disappointed] Global language changes.

1. If I need performance I will use C++ or C#. 2. (old AHK state) mean like a103 where array == map. 3. I make some tests about Capacity and TRUE Length not equal to Capacity.

Re: ExitCode Topic is solved

In general, though, I don't see why this code you provided is at all useful. Why not call the functions directly? The script is exiting itself just to call functions, so why not call the functions directly and then exit (without registering OnExit)? it useful because it avoids duplication if ure go...

Re: ExitCode Topic is solved

Any pre-execution error (such as a syntax error) causes the executable to exit with an exit code other than 0, typically 2, and OnExit is not called. There is nothing the script itself can do against this, it would require a ‘loader’. Also, in the rare event that the executable crashes, OnExit is no...

Re: check if a number is a valid Int64/Double

This works: string(largeint) == string(integer(largeint)) You can technically remove the first call to string() if you are certain that largeint is a string, but if it could also be a pure number, you need to leave it in. I recommend leaving it in either way. I'm up to explain stuff if you have any ...

I think this is a wonderful and it's great that you shared. Thank you! Please don't take this the wrong way, but I think putting just a function under GPL is unnecessary and even odd.

wait – Wait for any variable to become true or any function to evaluate to true

Hi everyone! First time sharing code on the forums, so forgive me for any mistakes I may make. This function waits for the variable you pass in to become truthy, or for the function you pass in to return a truthy value. You can customize the interval at which it will run the check, as well as the ma...

Re: Loop Stopping

There is no loop in the code you are showing. You might be referring to the auto-repeat functionality of Windows that automatically repeats a key if you hold it down. But that stops sending the key when you press another key. This might be the effect you are observing, in which case there is not muc...

I suggest adding the class name stored in __Class , the parent class (base class in AHK) you get by using extends , the this built-in, and mentioning that this.base is equivalent to most other languages' super built-in. Also, you can surely call __Init the “initializer”. That's all from my part. Tak...
