Re: A_ variables

- Thanks for your comments @coffee. - Sorry if I'm repeating earlier comments. - In AHK v1, A_ScriptName was just the name of the script (full path minus dir). - I like that in AHK v1, A_AhkXXX and A_ScriptXXX reliably give you file locations. I would have them all read-only (but perhaps changeable ...

Re: mouse hotkeys get forgotten Topic is solved

- @Rohwedder: Thanks. I was not aware that it blocked RButton's native function. Perhaps because I have other RButton hotkeys in the same or other scripts. - I figured out the problem. I have a script that minimises to the system tray that uses RButton. My hotkey above will work depending on which o...

Re: your personal AutoHotkey style guide

I really assumed you had at least the sense to choose something different than variable as the long version for v. Everything you put that v in front is a variable. But also everything you don't put this in front of. - I don't understand this point. Use something other than 'v', like what? - I use ...

Re: your personal AutoHotkey style guide

- To me, the main problem when reading code is to know what is a variable and what isn't. Whether the language is familiar or unfamiliar. - I can instantly see what is a variable in my code, other people's code takes longer to read/debug. This is particularly true of LaTeX for example. - (Using a le...
