You can do it. Start your script.
(Using AutoGui 2.2.0, should work with other versions)
File -> Import Gui -> Clone window. You'll see a window where it says "Activate the target window and click the "Clone" button".
Choose your script, click "Activate", click "Clone". You'll see a clone of your script on top of the AutoGui window (look at the caption). Now you can edit the layout. If you click into the AutoGui window, you can choose the View menu item and switch back and forth between "Editor" and "Design".

How to edit saved .ahk in designed mode ?

I used autogui to build my gui for 1st release.
How could I reedit the gui in design mode ?
I loaded the ahk file, but nowhere to edit in design mode

It is recallable, but not automatically. AutoGUI started as a GUI designer, but since version 2.0 it is primarily a script editor.

When I was working in MagicBox, I needed to modify the GUI several times and the Window Cloning Tool always did the job.

Thanks for the reply :)
Ok so I understand that the method is to Import GUI by cloning the saved file either by parse method, or by executing the GUI and cloning the window back in AUTO GUI right?

Ill try this :)
And do you have any plan to figure out how to make the generated GUI be recallable for future edits? Honestly your script is the best tool I found for AHK GUI creation and think it deserves to become a standard. Its probably worth it to try to implement this feature. Im ready to donate a small amount like 20 dollars if this works

hello Alguimist, I must say this script is fantastic and is my dream editor for AHK GUIs.

I have noticed one annoying bug that is repeatable on my Win10 PC with ahk 1.1.28 and AUTO GUI 2.2.5a
The GUI preview Windows cannot be recalled when you reopen the saved file. So what this means is that you are forced to finish the GUI before closing the AUTO GUI program because when you will get back to it another time it wont be possible to preview but only possible to execute the script.
For example I have 3 templates of GUIs that I started that all can't be opened via the previewer but they are EXECUTING properly from AUTO gui.
From this point you have to either start over from scratch to be able to preview from a newly created file. Or you must copy the code in an editor and continue manually

If you have any clue on how to fix this it would be awesome, please let me know :)

Thanks in adavance
Alex

EDIT: Im sorry to say I did not know that there was 2.2.6.7 available before posting, I'll test with new version and get back.

EDIT2: Ok, so with the newest version, I get the same problem. I tried using the old GUIs generated by the previous version. Then I tried to create a new one and still does not show up preview when you save, close and reopen AUTO GUI. I am running my files from OneDrive with everything syncronized.

Is "Recreate From Source" ever going to be re-implemented? It's really a drag not to be able to make simple edits and have it appear in design mode. Or is there another way of doing it?

Either way thanks to the creator for your work on this editor, I use it daily!

How do you fix that for AHK 1.1.11.02?
Since i wanted to use shortcut for creating a gui to my autobot i made for a certain HardGrindOnlineGame(HGO subgenre from MMO genre) i used to play.

I could not reproduce the error with the F11 key. What I found, though, is that the corresponding menu item is not toggling the visibility of the preview window, because at some point I thought the function would be called from the menu item with the default parameter and removed the g-Label.

Customizable themes would be cool but Alguimist just added a new dark then based on my suggestion of the Monokai theme in version 2.2.5 today

Fixed. This bug doesn't affect the menu item Save, the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+S or Ctrl+Shift+S or the toolbar button. Thanks for reporting.

Is it just me that has issues with saving new code with the most recent version (2.2.0.7)?

Open tab -> Untitled -> writing some AHK code -> File -> Save As -> entering a name (with or without .ahk) -> save

Nothing gets saved for me and the save window comes back every time with the name blanked out.
As soon as the codetab has a name, i.e. from loading it with AutoGUI already it saves allright as far as I have seen.

Cheers, Stema


I'm having this issue inconsistently as well
