Re: Is lexikos still maintaining AHK?

Let us not forget, dear Joe, that we do not have time, but rather Time has us (by the balls, I'd say), and therefore we should not waste it. Your statements are true and cannot be denied. I only mentioned that list in the idea that we may find out if other valuable members may have been "retired" fr...

Re: Is lexikos still maintaining AHK?

Thank you gregster. My greatest hope is that nothing bad happened to Steve. However all my points still stand. We do not live regular times - can't say 'normal' because nobody knows what that may mean from day to day - so we should expect anything. Of course people are entitled to their own behavior...

Re: Is lexikos still maintaining AHK?

Call me crazy but I have a theory. For the last few months I saw at least a couple well-known knowledgeable people simply dissapear from the Linux Mint community ( gm10 and smurphy ). There may be more. Now Steve (Lexikos) has gone without a trace. How many others are currently missing from the AHK ...

Last year, the rats spread the plague. This year, [we] the oxen will plow the fields whipped into submission. What will be next year: tigers hunting the oxen, bringing the herd to the brink of extinction...? And then... open season for the remaining ones turned into frightened rabbits. Game over. Ha...

Re: AutoGUI - Script Editor, GUI Designer, Debugger and Tools

Sad to hear that. What if people need multiple GUIs in the other languages that you plan to support? It would be a harsh limitation.
Anyway, keep up the good work!

Re: AutoGUI - Script Editor, GUI Designer, Debugger and Tools

Would the new version be capable of creating/editing multiple GUIs in a single script, or would that be another, far away... adventure? :)

Re: Request: A_AhkBuildDate

Alternatively, or in conjunction with SKAN's solution above there may be another one that reads LastWrite time for the selected file. It may be of use, say to check if the file has been tampered with. As long as the file is in its original pristine state the LastWrite timestamp should be the same as...

Re: Get monitor that mouse is in

I meant the situations you described yourself when window is very big or is mostly outside of display(s). Even if you haven't heard of that or didn't happen to you it doesn't mean it hasn't happened or wouldn't happen in the future. The idea is to cover all the bases in advance. But it's just an ide...

Re: Get monitor that mouse is in

Yes, we have simple cases and corner cases. As one who's stumbled into corner cases too many times I'd say we should cover them all as best as possible.
Have you tested the APIs I mentioned in such corner cases and compared results to AHK's built-in functions' results?

Re: Get monitor that mouse is in

I'm saying that, logically, where the window is should be where the most of it lies. So if a window is 98% in monitor 2 but its top-left point is in monitor 1, the result should be 2, not 1. Maybe in some special case one would want the other result, so if a custom function would be built for this p...

Re: Get monitor that mouse is in

Maybe the safest way is to get active window's position+size in a RECT using GetWindowRect() and then call MonitorFromRect() . That's because contrary to what is suggested above the latter "retrieves a handle to the display monitor that has the largest area of intersection with a specified rectangle...

Re: Upcoming Ahk2Exe Changes (2019)

Couldn't the additional Compile (GUI) option be added as a submenu of the main Compile script , where first would be something like in background and second with GUI ? That would avoid the cluttering of the main context menu while offering the additional GUI option. Also there would be no need for a...

Re: Relativity - Add relative positioning to controls in GUIs created by AutoGUI's GUI designer

Ah, if the import takes care of any necessary conversion then it's OK. Frankly I haven't played much with AutoGUI, for some reason, so I don't really know its strengths and weaknesses. Anyway, it's good we got to talk some ideas out, maybe at some point something useful will come out of this. Thank ...

Re: Relativity - Add relative positioning to controls in GUIs created by AutoGUI's GUI designer

Understandable. At least you now know more about other editors. :)
The only drawback in Relativity is that once converted, a GUI cannot be edited again in AutoGUI. A bidirectional conversion might even allow a seamless integration of Relativity in AutoGUI as one of the official tools. ;)

Re: Relativity - Add relative positioning to controls in GUIs created by AutoGUI's GUI designer

To be fair, SmartGui is quite outdated considering latest changes in AHK 1.1 (it was developed by Rajat and then myself mostly in the AHK 1.0 era). I tried my best to make it compatible with Win9x - since it used to be my main OS - and at some point attempted to update it to work with AHK 1.1 Unicod...

Re: Relativity - Add relative positioning to controls in GUIs created by AutoGUI's GUI designer

Indeed the issue with variable-bound coordinates can be tricky, but is solvable with a bit of effort (like asking the user to manually input values for each variable, for example). The v , g , hwnd and other parameters can be parsed, if existing. SmartGUI does that. ;) Of course, everything can be p...

Re: Relativity - Add relative positioning to controls in GUIs created by AutoGUI's GUI designer

Thanks for considering my suggestions. Long ago I managed to get SmartGui Creator to extract most of the GUI-related code and process it, including such "non-standard" coordinates. It wasn't perfect by any means but sometimes it could do a good job. Code, however, was a mess. :lol: And, ironically, ...

Good idea, could've used such tool back on Windows. :) Tried to test it in Linux Mint under Wine 5.1 and first thing popped up an error messagebox related to the Switch command. I realised it was due to an older AHK version (1.1.30.03) so I updated to 1.1.32.00. It may be a good idea for you to ment...
