Re: Loading JSON response? Topic is solved

If you don't include Coco's library correctly, you will see only one empty msgbox with the code above. So, what means "doesn't work as I've written it" and "exactly same results as before" ? How does the string look that you get from the API? With single quotation marks? Well, y...

Re: Loading JSON response? Topic is solved

You should use double quotation marks for strings in Autohotkey, not single ones - the latter ones have no special meaning in Autohotkey, afaik. But to use literal " s in a string within an expression, use two "" quotation marks in a row as an escape sequence : Within an expression, ...

Ok, forgive me if my brain is fried today & this is obvious, but I'm back... I call an API with a function & receive a dictionary as a result. I want to call one of the keys of that dictionary. Researching it, I find this awesome library: https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=627 and...

Datatypes in AHK?

If autohotkey doesn't have explicit datatypes, then I'm having a very hard time understanding why something is failing... I've created a function calls an API & which works perfectly when I call it explicitly: createShortlink("http://localhost:82/build", {"original_url": &quo...

I've posted a few times and the community seems pretty convinced that a person can connect to a PostgreSQL database using the ADO SQL library . However I have not been able to get it to work.

I've seen a few posts on the topic but no resolution. So it's either very simple & I'm missing it or maybe not possible? Using the IsNull/ahkDBA library for an easy UI, I've tried with two connection strings constructed from ( connectionstrings.com ). ADO Driver={PostgreSQL};Server=localhost;Por...

That's great, I'm interested to know what part of ahk if any you turned into a career ? It's helped in probably more ways that I can list. But to give you some idea: * Prior to AHK I wrote in HTML & some actionscript. So the bulk of all of my programming knowledge came from AHK. Even if I'm mos...

Ten years ago this forum helped turned me from a young sapling into a programmer.
