I really must recommand PSPad for editing AHK files...FTW
I never knew about this, it's totally awesome! However writing code from memory has now become second nature to me; but I suppose this feature would really help newbies.
Ctrl-Space was never used in practice..

@ Thalon: I didn't realise Ctrl+J auto-completes for variables too - that's definitely handy as I like to use (long) descriptive names for my variables.
...I haven't downloaded the new version yet, but are those keys configurable?...Ctrl+J don't seem a good "shortcut" for anything, cuz you need 2 hands for it...(unless you're a freak with big hands)...this seems better...
Ctrl+Space = auto-complete (command name AND variables)
Ctrl+Shift+Space = auto-complete full command line...really I'd want Tab for completetion, but then I don't know how you'd Tab...??? Maybe Win+C = Complete, Win+Shift+C = Complete whole command line (what does that mean anyway "auto-complete a full command line").
...before I thought you were kidding...but maybe not...PN != PM...is that really a typo?
...please send me a PN or...
OMFG, the AutoHotkey forum is IP.board now (yuck!)...I may not be able to continue coming here (& I love AutoHotkey)...I liked phpBB, but not this...ugh...
I may not reply to any topics (specifically ones I was previously involved in), mostly cuz I can't find the ones I replied to, to continue helping, but also just cuz I can't stand the new forum...phpBB was soo perfect. This is 100% the opposite of "perfect".
I also semi-plan to start my own, phpBB-based AutoHotkey forum (or take over the old one, if he'll let me)
PM me if you're interested in a new phpBB-based forum (I need to know if anyone would use it)How (or why) did they create the Neil Armstrong memorial site (neilarmstronginfo.com) BEFORE he died?
Yes Ctrl+J is configurable (Settings > Program Settings > Key Map > Tools) but I didn't notice anywhere to change Ctrl+Space which was odd. By "auto-complete a full command line" I meant that it inserts a full example of its usage from the help file such as "Sort, VarName [, Options]".
Also I noticed the shortcut for Autohotkey help is Alt+F1
I really like the PSPad because of this feature (I also prefere very descriptive names, so that every noob (I) can read the code also in some month without heavy description
But I think it is broken if the code exceeds about 8000 lines XD
After this break-through there are several names which can't be autocompleted any more (used in the above part), so I think there is a maximum of words or letters in the autocompletion-buffer.
A relative newcomer to any programming and I am very impressed with AHK and what I can now achieve.
I started by using PSPad, and again, I was very impressed, but..
I wanted a feature where I could condense the code to a single line, to help me understand the overall structure of everyones scripts.
As far as I am aware PSPad does not have 'code folding'. where as Notepad++ does. This is invaluable to me as I learn more.
Any help is always appreciated.
I tried "Run this to install syntax and clip files for PSPad" and tried it also manually, but failed Is there a step-by-step how-to somewhere?
