Re: Excel Enum Constants Search

Hi, I had a similar problem with long initialization at startup with Capn Odin's trie class ( https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=35837 ) loading a whole English dictionary. I broke the dictionary into 26 files alphabetically, created an array of file names, and maintained an array of ...

Nested comment blocks using /* */

I have noticed that AHK doesn't handle comment blocks in the same way it handles other opening/closing punctuation like parentheses and brackets. In other words, it seems not to count the occurrence of opening '/*' and consider everything a comment until encountering an equal number of '*/". I often...

Re: Forum irregularities

I just noticed that if I go to the forum boards without being logged in, I get the very nice original layout of the forum in my browser. But, once I log in the format changes to something functional but not visually pleasing. Is this expected? I'm using FireFox.

Forum irregularities

Windows update stops issuing PBT_APMSUSPEND

Hi, Anyone else notice that the recent Windows 10 update has stopped issuing a PBT_APMSUSPEND message when the machine is going into sleep mode? I use OnMessage(0x218, "WM_POWERBROADCAST") to capture power event messages to maintain an hour meter on the machine. An alternative would be to make a hot...

Re: [Game] AHK Klondike Solitaire

Hi,

Another enhancement idea... other solitaire games allow you to double click on a card and the pending logical move for that card is made for you so that you don't have to drag and drop the card yourself. It would be a nice addition!

Re: [Game] AHK Klondike Solitaire

I like this a lot. Thank you. Here's a challenge: Have the script look ahead enough to provide a hint for the next move. Sometimes a user stares at a game of solitaire but for some reason doesn't see an obvious move. It would be clever to be able to ask the computer if the game is truly over. It wou...

Re: [Game] AHK Klondike Solitaire

Great program. I love to see how people do different tasks. Even though this has been done before in other code it is always fun to see how it can be done, and done this well, in AHK. Thanks. I found something I didn't like though. The code unconditionally copies all *.png to the folder intended to ...

Re: Switch(case)

This uses labels but I like the simplicity and the form as it mimics a nominal switch statement rather well.

Code: Select all

foo := "yada yada"
Loop 1 ;switch
{
	Goto % IsLabel("Case(" . foo . ")") ? "Case(" . foo . ")" : "Case_Default"
	Case(yada yada):
	{
	}
	Break
	Case_Default:
	{
	}
	Break

Re: Anyone having issues retrieving Excel com obj?

I have summed up my thoughts in the following quotable: "Microsoft's approach to the computer interface...

Some more tinkering shows that the same construct works fine in Word 2016. Excel remains recalcitrant!

Hi, I've been on win 10 for about six months and was pleased that all my scripts were working. Over the past week I noticed that ComObjActive("Excel.Application") is not returning anything or generates an error "Error: 0x800401e3 "Operation unavailable". I have the same issue on office 2010 and offi...

Re: CodeQuickTester - Write and run code without touching the file system

I like it. May I suggest an ini to save settings like screen position and gui size. Always having it open in a small form factor is not optimal. There are probably a bunch more things that would be convenient to save from session to session.

Re: [Script] PersistentSaveFolder

I love this idea. Here is my take on this. It simply maintains the current and previous titles of the windows that have focus. Upon changing and the current window title having the word "Save" in it, the script reads a section from an ini file and if the ini key is contained in the previous window t...

Hi,

I noticed that if I open a .ahk file that was previously saved with AutoGui, the "Show/Hide Preview Window" doesn't work. I cannot get the child window to show unless I start a new gui.
