Thank you for your amazing work.
Question: Any hopes for it to get "add ahk code" to buttons function?

You can define a g-Label or function name for the button in the properties dialog and then write the code for it after the delimiter of the generated code. But it is more convenient to finish designing the GUI first, to start writing the code, preferably on a new tab.

Just bumped into an issue: certain hotkeys are screwed up. Wanted to type a pipe | which on RO layout pertains to AltGr+W (or Ctrl+Alt+W) and instead the script wants to close the file (which has the Ctrl+W hotkey). I can't use the script now. Going back to SmartGuiCreator mod until this is fixed.

Please see if the following works. Replace line 2526 in the current version with:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

CtrlP := GetKeyState("Ctrl", "P") && !GetKeyState("vkA5", "P")

Thanks for reporting this issue.

Version 2.2.0:

- Upcoming built-in variables were added to A_Variables and Keywords.ahk.
- Minor bug fixes.

Note: the default font of AutoGUI is Lucida Console 10, but it looks better and the code is more readable with size 14 when the window is maximized. To change the font go to View > Change Editor Font.

A couple suggestions... When the Duplicate line shortcut is used, the cursor should move to the end of the newly added line. Similarly, when you move a line up or down, the cursor should stay with that moved line. It is more common that a line needs to be moved up or down several lines opposed to just one.

P.S. Would love for the ability to add themes for the syntax highlighting opposed to just modifying Editor.ahk.

Just as a quick example, here are some updated functions inside Editor.ahk that do what I am requesting, as well as supporting moving multiple lines together.

I think that in most situations you will notice that a line should be duplicated while still writing it :think:. Scintilla editors keep the cursor in the same position while non-Scintilla editors move the cursor to the new line.

You are right and I changed that for the next version.

I made tests with a dark theme using the colors you provided for the Monokai theme loaded from an ini file. It is a work in progress.

You're right, I think I just meant it should move to the newly created line.

Every time I come back to this project the improvement is spectacular!

Would be cool if it had a 'view function list' which would iterate all the functions in the script, clicking one would jump you to that function

Would be cool if there was a hotkey to paste the Code Tooltips text into the editor

The fold margin collapse and expand boxes look '3D' but the vertical lines look '2D' ascii, would be cool if they matched (like notepad++)

It'd be nice to have an option to specify running and debugging with AHK V2. I added it to AutoGui.ini as the AltRun setting but also modified Menu.ahk to add an item for running via the Menu in addition to the Alt+F9 shortcut.

Do you have documentation available yet for all the features of AutoGui? I didn't see any on SourceForge. I just now realized that the lexer has items for comment documentation similar to JSDoc. I'm not certain what exactly it is looking for though.

I know that it has to start with "/**". Quoted items in a comment doc are colored differently. As are lines that contain an @. Any information would be helpful. Thanks!

There is: Ctrl + Insert.

I changed the code folding boxes to the default style as you suggested. Not only for a consistent style, but because there is another disadvantage on the use of the XPM icons: they do not resize according to the font size and so there is a small gap between the folding button and the consecutive vertical line.

Thanks :).

Debugging with Alt+F5 is now possible for the alternative executable in the newest version.

You should avoid modifying Menu.ahk or you will have to modify it every time a new version is available. The only customizable menu in AutoGUI is Tools. It can be modified with the Tools Dialog (Tools > Configure Tools). Remember to specify the parameter "{FILENAME}".

kczx3 wrote:Do you have documentation available yet for all the features of AutoGui?

No, but I will start to work on it eventually. It has been delayed thus far because I think that only a few features require explanation. Anyway, a detailed description is needed.

See the highlight test file created by RaptorX.

- Improvements in Move Line Up/Down. Credits to kczx3.
- Debugging can be made with the alternative executable (Alt+F5).

Defiantely need more themes or quick guide how to set it "my way" - white objects on black background are good for CAD not for CODE (such letters burn my eyes :P).
My current syntax.

And second - where's paypal donate button?

Theme customization is still being planned. It will be implemented in a future version.

Haven't had the time to check but are SciTE4AHK themes compatible with this? Since, they both use SciTE, no? maybe the lexer is somewhat different from yours?

Alguimist, I vaguely recall you mentioning that you want to rewrite the lexer used in this project. Do you also have plans to add a lexer for AHK v2 syntax? It doesn't differ too much but you could basically ignore command syntax.
