Re: Second Edit Pane for SciTE4AutoHotkey

I just replaced the code in the first post with a significant improvement (although not yet the ideas that were discussed in the last few posts). This update corrects an issue where the menu would flicker if it overlapped the other window (the File menu can be quite long and overlap the other pane, ...

Re: PleasantNotify() - Beautiful popup msg, tooltip

FYI - To me, it would be much more useful with color parameters -- both background and foreground colors (separate title and main message colors).

Re: Second Edit Pane for SciTE4AutoHotkey

Scintilla (the edit control used by SciTE) supports multiple controls editing the same document. A simple proof of concept shows this in action, using SciTE's output pane... There might be ways to disable output to the output pane (or perhaps just disable the mirroring before running a command). Yo...

Re: Second Edit Pane for SciTE4AutoHotkey

Also, it appears that I have to exit the bottom window in order to open a another file in the bottom window. It would be convenient if the close button in the bottom window would close it, i.e. exit it. It's true that using Close only closes the tab/file and not exit the window, but that's how I wo...

Re: Second Edit Pane for SciTE4AutoHotkey

Thanks. I thought of that, and actually, I would use the more specific messages of WM_ENTERSIZEMOVE and WM_EXITSIZEMOVE, but OnMessage() isn't triggered by those messages being sent to the window of another process. If you know of a way to have Windows messages sent to windows of another process tri...

Re: Best way to remove/replace GUI picture and text controls

Actually, you might want to move the Shows before the Hides to try to totally eliminate flicker, but it seems to occasionally flicker anyway.

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

I wrote a script for a second SciTE4AutoHotkey window to behave a lot like a second pane within the main window, similar to Notepad++. See this thread: http://ahkscript.org/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6124

Second Edit Pane for SciTE4AutoHotkey

One of my favorite features of Notepad++ is that I can have a second editing pane open within the same window. I use it for viewing different files I want to reference right next to my code, and also to view one part of my script and do searches in it while I edit another part of it. It's much more ...

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

I like using the context menu that comes up when you right click on a tab, but if you only have one document open, there aren't any tabs. Is there a way to bring up that same context menu when you only have one document open? Also, I think I already know this can't be done, but I'll ask just in case...

Re: abbreviation not found

It is vague. But if he's using hotstrings, it doesn't matter where they're entering it to get a message to popup when a known serial number is entered. It could be in notepad and the message would still pop up. That's why I didn't get how a hotstring would be able to cause a message to pop up when a...

Re: abbreviation not found

Yes, having them appear in a traytip would eliminate errors. Good idea. I was just saying that having a hotstring for each by itself doesn't solve the problem of preventing entry errors, but I didn't realize where you were going with that.

Re: abbreviation not found

I think what Mr K is saying is that if someone enters a serial number that doesn't exist (so there is no hotstring for it), he would like an error message to pop up.

It will be fine when it is merged into the main branch. I guess if that's happening soon, then it's fine.

Re: PleasantNotify() - Beautiful popup msg, tooltip

I was going to suggest an OK button. Very useful. If it could just show up in the same monitor as the gui from the calling script (if there is one), it would be great.

However, it's not useful (to me) yet if it's only usable with the new test build of AHK.

Re: Determine when an application/window has finished launch

It might be possible monitor the window for messages and see if it receives a message that indicates it's finished drawing or whatever. Use Winspector Spy or something to see what messages are being sent to it.

Re: Determine when an application/window has finished launch

I suppose you could have the script actively keep moving the mouse back over the window, then checking the shape of it. And you could have it move it right back to where it was so it doesn't interrupt the user from doing other things with it too much.

Re: Determine when an application/window has finished launch

You would have to somehow constrain the cursor to that app window for the A_Cursor approach to be reliable. It will return the current cursor shape no matter where it is, so it will often be an arrow (or a lot of other shapes), as this shows. Loop { ToolTip, %A_Cursor% Sleep, 50 } return Esc::ExitApp

Re: PleasantNotify() - Beautiful popup msg, tooltip

Very nice. It looks like it's easily modifiable for different colors and to position it where I want, such as over the main gui of the calling script, or at least on the same monitor that the main gui is in. Since you're looking for ideas, you might consider adding color parameters and perhaps an op...
