Re: How to find my last post Topic is solved

Some buttons disappear if you're zoomed in. TO LIST POSTS You can click on your own username (in any thread you're in), to navigate to your profile page, and then click 'Search user’s posts'. TO LIST THREADS (AKA TOPICS) In my forum tutorial, I mention the 'Quick links' button at the top-left, which...

Re: identify if 3rd party window main menu is active? Topic is solved

That's great! :P

Working with menu bars was one of the first times I had to work with DllCall etc from scratch, there wasn't any relevant code on the forum at the time.

Re: close windows on script exit/reload

It's simpler to call WinCloseOnExit, than to store window information, and create/alter an OnExit callback function.

Re: A_Now versus FileGetTime() timestamps

You should add return/Exit/ExitApp, as appropriate, after Reload. If you don't, the script may still perform some actions before finally closing. Reload return For this script, maybe ExitApp is necessary. Alternatively, perhaps you should turn SetTimer off, before Reload. Perhaps, a new script is st...

Re: Help refining a script to adjust leading and trailing spaces

To remove leading/trailing spaces you can use Trim:
Trim() / LTrim() / RTrim() - Syntax & Usage | AutoHotkey
https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/Trim.htm

Adding leading/trailing spaces, to be consistent with nearby lines, may be more complicated, because you'd need info about nearby lines.
