Re: Fixing codeboxes

Does that mean that once the "codebox" tag is what we want, it is moved to the "code" tag, or is "codebox" now the new default tag for code? The "code" tag is still missing indentation. I'd vote for updating the "code" tag at some point as things like indentation are affecting the readeability of a ...

Finally with function call with string concatenation Topic is solved

I have trouble with a function I expect to return false in AhkVersion 1.1.30.00 The function has a finally statement with a function call concatenating a variable and a string. Instead of false, the function returns the input value of the function call statement. It seems to me like a bug as the wor...

Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

The documentation on #Include refers to an old topic on joining scripts. I don't see how the referred topic solves the problem of not being able to merge two isolated scripts together. To me, isolated means not containing #includes to each other. From what I understand the Join script only merges #i...

Re: Thread global variables and thread ID

I would consider it a valuable tool and when implemented users can choose to use it or not.
I think maintenance wise thread globals would be similar to normal globals. As with the normal global variables, it is important to name variables in a way that makes it clear the variable is not local.

Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

I have struggled with WinWait to wait for WinText to change in a window, so the text in the window was "Text A' when the window came into existence, but later changes to "Text B". I verified this with Window Spy. My script only detected if a window with that WinText comes into existence during the w...

Re: Thread global variables and thread ID

I see I may not have clarified my example enough. The sleep part represents a sequence of actions which take up several seconds, a time in which the user may start another thread which should also be possible. I also have to add that the script I wrote became quite large and I have already converted...

Re: Thread global variables and thread ID

Working examples #A and #B. Take into account that while the thread is still active, the user may start a new thread on another Notepad window. #A using passing trough the pid and #B using the last found window. In #A it may seem like a minor inconvenience to pass the pid. But with many different fu...

Thread global variables and thread ID

Many applications can be open multiple times, so there are several PID's active for the same application. If a Thread is started on one process of an application, I want to insure that all functions work on the same processes even when other windows have become active in between. I know a few ways o...

Ahk2exe: Passing built-in variables to #include Topic is solved

As of AutoHotKey 1.1.28 , support was added for all built-in variables in the path passed to #Include. The following example shows that the compiler does not support all built-in variables yet. The example requires an include file msgbox.ahk is placed in the folders C:\, the My Documents folder and ...
