GUI opacity / translucency / transparent

Hi, With the help of many un-related posts in the forum (credit to all), I've managed to lash together a countdown timer with a video playing in the background. In particular the following code file = untitled.avi FutureTime := 2015 08 13 17 00 00 ;year, month, day, hour, min, secs. Gui, Color, EEAA...

Re: SciTE4AutoHotkey v3.0.06.01 [Updated October 12 2014]

Hi MJs, Thanks for the reply....I tried your suggestion but without luck! I took your advice re: backups and test file - thanks for the heads up there. But I couldn't edit the SciTEDebug.ahk file - I could open it just fine (and saw the 'here be dragons warning'), but it just wouldn't let me make an...

Re: AHK Studio

Thanks maestrith, I upgraded AKHd (was only a little out of date but enough). But the key was seeing the 'right click, save target as' on the vid. Everything went fine after that. Thanks for the help getting me to that point. I'm spending a little time looking into the debugging features - I hope yo...

Re: AHK Studio

Thanks maestrith,

I'd been there a couple of times, but all I get is what looks like ahk source, but with no structure to it. I tried to cut this to notepad (and another well known AHK editor) but this still resulted in nothing I could use!

Sorry, still feel like I missing something!?!

Cheers.

Re: AHK Studio

Hi, I'm pretty new to AHK and was looking at AHK Studio to start editing & debugging code in a better way. But (and I feel pretty silly even asking!) I can't seem to find how to download the latest version. I can get an exe off your website, but the menus are all different to what is shown here and ...

Re: SciTE4AutoHotkey v3.0.06.01 [Updated October 12 2014]

Hi, I'm still a newbie with AUTOHOTKEY and SciTE4AHK is really helpful in understanding more. But I have one issue which I can't see a way around (that usually means there is a way round, but it's so blindingly obvious that I can't see it!). When I put SciTE4AHK into debugging mode, I usually bring ...

Re: Can I use GuiControlGet in a Hotkey?

Hi lexikos and MJs, many thanks for getting back on this. @MJs: I'm sorry if I've caused confusion....the single script I posted would be run with either option 1 or option 2, but not both together. In other words I'd comment out the option I was not testing - apologies for the confusion. @lexikos: ...

Re: Can I use GuiControlGet in a Hotkey?

Hi TLM, Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure if I made things clear. I have a script with either option 1 or option 2 in. Not both in the same file. The problem is that the script with only option 1 does return the button position information, but the script with only option 2 in returns no content fo...

Can I use GuiControlGet in a Hotkey?

Hi All, Sorry, I think that this might be a really basic question. I'm trying to move a button on a window by using a hotkey. This is the simple code that I have so far: #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases. #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with det...

Hi Avi, Many thanks for getting back on this - the clue I needed was Common Formats! But I couldn't get your suggestion of i)\n to work. But after a little digging on the autohotkey forum, a recent post by Lexikos suggested \R . So in the Common Formats input field, on the 1st line I typed \R , and ...

Re: Clipjump : The Ultimate Clipboard Manager

Hi Avi, Clipjump is great. I've been using Ditto for years and thought that was good, but there so much more here and easier to use - thanks! Just one really, really simple question: Is it possible to do an unformatted paste removing line breaks at the same time? I quite commonly end up manually rem...

Re: Formatting text in a hotstring replacement

Hi, Back after the break to report what I found. Guest, I followed your suggested option 1. I guess that the formatting of the text is 'stored' externally in another file. So I found that the following worked to perform this: Firstly, copy to the clipboard the formatted text. Then use the following ...

Re: Formatting text in a hotstring replacement

Thanks Guest,

I thought it was not possible directly. But thanks for the alternative suggestion. I'll need a little time to digest and play with it. I'll post back with what I find.

Thanks again.

Formatting text in a hotstring replacement

Hi, I'm still pretty new here, but have a problem which I'm wondering if can be done at all. I'd like to format the text in a hotstring replacement. Specifically, I have an email signoff which looks something like: Best Regards Name t: +00 123 456 789; http://www.coname.com; e: [email protected].com ie., th...

Getting text into Excel comments

Hi All, I'm pretty new to AHK but excited about the possibilities. My first 'proper' attempt at something hard (for me!) was to have AHK interact with Excel Comments. But I struggled..... In words, what I want to achieve is to have a shortcut key which when pressed would inspect the currently active...
