Re: horizontal scrolling in Windows Explorer?

See https://autohotkey.com/docs/Hotkeys.htm#Wheel This does not work with Windows Explorer...it works with other applications but not WinExplorer. Unfortunately this is the behavior I've found with most of these horizontal scroll scripts... Hoping someone somewhere figured out the exception to make...

Re: [Function] WinGetPosEx v0.1 (Preview) - Get the real position and size of a window

Too bad then. :( Wish I could help but there isn't (and never will be) any W10 machine near me to test possible changes to the function. Hopefully someone else here would chime in. Good luck! There are like 63 pages of posts at the link you posted...can you perhaps highlight a few of the more meani...

MouseGetPos wrong?

I currently have a script that based on the location of the mouse when releasing the Left Mouse Button, a decision is made....and 95% of the time it works great; however, once in a while the wrong decision will be made as if the mouse is located about 200 pixels off of where it appears to be. Is the...

Re: OnWin() - call function on window event (WinWaitXXX async)

if the sub tasks could be organizated as threads (not processes), that would be more nice in Windows Task Manager. I thought that this is what the SetTimer routine did which is why I originally questioned the advantage of this script over one that simply uses a bunch of SetTimers. Am I incorrect in...

Re: OnWin() - call function on window event (WinWaitXXX async)

@evilC: The sample code is not updated. Regardless, it's just an example to demonstrate OnWin() . ;) @Skrell: Ease of use, reusable, additional functionality esp. the ability to have the monitoring done in a separate process. You can group certain window event monitors, etc. We occasionally see hel...

Re: OnWin() - call function on window event (WinWaitXXX async)

What are the advantages to using this script over just a bunch of SetTimer functions ? Ease of use? Performance?

Re: Compiled exe behaves diff than source??

Is the .bin file you are compiling with the same version of AutoHotkey?

If in doubt,

Code: Select all

MsgBox % A_AhkVersion " " (A_IsUnicode ? "Unicode " : "ANSI ") (A_PtrSize*8 "-bit")
Yep.

Compiled exe behaves diff than source??

The code i wrote below was meant to allow the user to drag a window left <-> right and up <-> down easily by grabbing the edge of a window. When i run just the ahk file it works PERFECTLY; however, if i compile the script i find that upon releasing the RButton that the script CONTINUES to lock the m...

Re: trackpad detection?

1. Thank you both of your suggestions seem like interesting ones!
2. However, am I correct in thinking that both of your solutions will essentially target specific hardware devices and not be a generic solution that can detect either "any mouse" or "any trackpack" presence?

Re: Setup Notepad++ for AutoHotkey

I thought I found a notepad++ ahk theme awhile ago that colored everything BETWEEN the % the same color as the % itself and thought this was a great idea. I wish I could find it again. :-/

Also where can I find your 2nd theme? The links in the OP don't work anymore.

Re: Setup Notepad++ for AutoHotkey

@ClearBlueSky85
try this link: userDefineLang_AHK.xml (gist)
2 questions:
1. This is only for light colored Notepad++ "stylers" correct?
2. Is there anything you can do to color words within %'s the same as the color of the %'s ?

Thank you!
