fincs' status & project updates

Hello AutoHotkey Community, As some of you may have noticed, my activity has been practically zero lately. This was mainly due to several things going on in my life, and I decided to use the little spare time I had to focus on other projects that had at the time appeared. However, those time consumi...

Re: « What's on your mind? »

:shock:
Oh wow, I'm terribly and deeply sorry! This was definitely NOT supposed to happen. :oops:
I wonder if there's any way to restore the deleted thread. Do we have scheduled database backups?

Re: Rename 'Bug Reports to 'Issues'

When the ahkscript.org forum was set up, the Bug Reports and Wish List sections were specifically reinstated exactly as they were in the old phpBB v2 forum at autohotkey.com, because the new layout instated by polyethene was causing confusion and people were having more trouble deciding where to pos...

Re: The Future of the AutoHotkey Programming Language

First of all, congratulations on writing such a well-written and organized post. AutoHotkey is already dependent on some Automation interfaces (e.g. for depends on _NewEnum() from the collection interface and Next() from the IEnumVARIANT interface). No. for depends on the object having a _NewEnum() ...

Re: Command syntax - "This parameter can be an expression"

So the more re-training, the better? No. My sentence was supposed to argue that there is already the need for quite a lot of retraining, and changing this behaviour would not make any significant difference. So make a better highlighter. I already did . I also think expression should always require...

Re: Command syntax - "This parameter can be an expression"

It is very easily predictable. Not without knowing beforehand which built-in functions accept which numeric parameters. Would you say that it is intuitive for x+y to be taken literally even though the only valid values for the parameter are numbers? In command syntax, yes. I expect non-OutputVar ar...

Re: AutoHotKey and Windows 10

IE is not going away, namely, the underlying MSHTML+COM engine. MS is not that stupid to remove an operating system component so many programs rely on.

Re: Command syntax - "This parameter can be an expression"

My opinion is that the change should not be reversed because it would make command syntax highly unpredictable and unintuitive. Treating certain parameters of certain built-in functions as "also expressions" would result in second-class treatment of script-defined functions as well as blatant incons...

Re: A Github organisation for ahkscript

in my opinion, it should be more organized and strict. the official 'AutoHotkey' github account should probably hold repos for: 1. the codebase 2. the docs 3. the website 4. maybe something else i thought the 'ahkscript' github account got too cluttered with user contributed repositories that shoul...

With every single new test build posted here, I feel more and more like the version number deserves bumping to v1.2 due to so many major changes to how AutoHotkey works.

Re: Proposed New GUI API for AutoHotkey v2

What do you think about adding a third parameter to AddCtrl() and/or a property to set/get the control's event handler? Once user-defined function objects are supported (as in the v1.1.x test builds), this could be used to associate arbitrary data with the control via an object. (The object's Call(...

Re: Proposed New GUI API for AutoHotkey v2

Is there a particular reason that you put eventInfo before guiEvent? No. Coming to think of it, it does make more sense to put guiEvent first. I'll change it. Is information still passed via ErrorLevel in some cases? I think there's just Link and ListView (for the "I" event). No, it gets appended a...

The control object is passed as the first parameter to control event handler functions/methods.
