Re: Suggestions on documentation improvements

What is a THREAD? Doc for THREAD does not precisely define what constitutes a thread. It says: The current thread is defined as the flow of execution invoked by the most recent event; examples include hotkeys, SetTimer subroutines, custom menu items, and GUI events. 1. If a thread is an EVENT, then...

Re: Sysget: Not Detecting Monitors or MonitorCount

Thanks, Eyefinity looks like a bit of a no-man's land as far as AHK is concerned- especially as there doesn't even seem to be an easy way of even detecting it- other than directly reading AMD config data. Attempting to script it directly isn't an option- so I guess we must turn to things like AGS_SD...

Sysget: Not Detecting Monitors or MonitorCount

Hi there, Applied this test script to own config of two monitors, works as intended: #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases. ; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.

Re: Space Growth in Ini Files

When the above was posted, the decision was made not to use IniDelete . Can't remember why- perhaps the help didn't provide enough examples- or there were other issues regarding extra spaces in the value field- but recall in using it the ini files got messed up. So with just IniWrite and IniRead it'...

Re: Prglnch: Yet Another Game Launcher

It's been a bit of a bug Squishathon since the initial release, and in the interim have expanded the content in the bundled help file to ease a new subscriber into a relative feeling of familiarity with the workings of it.
1.3.1 is stable, enjoy. :)

Re: [GUI] Use HTML and CSS for your GUIs!

Looks great, thanks. :D
A soon as there is a convenient method to implement context help on the GUIs, then perhaps we can all dispense with the venerable HTMLHelp entirely!

Re: Batch File Doesn't Run Properly in AHK.

Out of interest, here's an "MCVE", this time running a JS version of the Shell Object. Run it as a bat file, all good, but launch it as a command from a second process and the shell call disregards the "Runas" verb, regardless of the level of invocation- (as if that mattered anyw...

The pages aren't slow in displaying, but there now is a definite pause before they load. It's okay, for now- let's hope not a sign of further issues ahead. :)

Re: URLDownloadToFile with original file name?

Redirects like 302 are a pain, because generated headers of non-existent files will download as files without the error being easily trapped.
If the file to be downloaded is not text/html content-type, then at least an invalid file will be picked up as one of those.

Re: A_Temp and NotePad++

Another curious thing with N++ {RunMe} is captured local hotkeys. #IfWinActive MyAHKScript { Del:: } Delete doesn't work in N++ while the script is running and even when the hotkey has not been activated. Anyone else get that? Edit: Ew. Also in HTMLHelp Workshop- even Explorer... this warrants a...

Re: Windows 10 can't handle big windows...?

Very interesting. Here on 1709 (AMD) everything freezes - CTR-Alt-Del to escape. Once Task Mgr is invoked, it's as if nothing happened. Absolutely nothing in the logs.

Re: [Game] AHK Mahjong Solitaire

Beautiful! All that's needed is a click sound for tile select, and click_success for match. :)
The bottom of the form is obscured by the taskbar- if there is a taskbar showing it shouldn't be a drama creating the form in the remainder of the screen.
