vbs silent

Hello Everyone, Every time I use VBS it displays a message that says the script is taking longer than expected. Is there a way of suppressing these messages? Or fixing it? This is the speak VBS. I want to use this, but the control message is undesired. VBSTART Sub Speak(text) Dim Talk Set Talk = Cre...

Re: Scroll to Precise Window Location

@JRL Here's the thing. What functionality does the actual window have? I looked up on the internet for functions of notepad. If you press Ctrl-G you get a prompt for what line you want to jump to. You could send the line number, but does the window your working with have the same function? Without i...

Re: how can I debug script called by macro>

The way I prefer doing this is to combine them together. Eliminate the macro call. Then debug. Once it works, split the two apart again.

Include shows the code included when it's running but then disappears when it stops. Makes debugging difficult.

Good Luck,

Re: RegEx

@JRL and Bob, In my first post I was talking about excluding the number zero. This was something I was first trying to do. I then shifted to [1-7] which for this case worked, and was more simple. My attention to detail when posting needs a little work. Sorry for that. Thanks to both of you for helpi...

Re: Advice for passing variables

@mightycpa, It seems like you are doing more work than is needed. You can pass info between macros by using command line. ExecuteFile>YourPath\YourFilename.exe,YourParameters(you can just place your strings here.) Like %string1%;%string2%; Then in the called exe, you would import the parameters like...

Re: RegEx

@Bob Why not, not? :lol: The why is because I LOVE RegEx. I can get what I want with just one line. Plus, I have to think about Marcus. He introduced me to RegEx and I wouldn't want to let him down. Also, RegEx is mind bending, stimulating, bang your head against the wall, rip out your hair, finally...

Re: RegEx

@JRL, The solution was to exclude \d. RegEx>[1-7],string,0,match,nom,0 Originally I had \d[1-7] thinking I was specifying that the digit(\d) needed to be 1 through 7. PepsiHog We have a tattle tale right here. I think it's spying on us. It KNOWS how to add. This is getting SCARY!! 1,2,3,.. 4! Four t...

Re: RegEx

Ok,

I got it. I was doing this

RegEx>\d[1-7]

Thinking I was specifying a digit between 1 and 7. But [1-7] is a stand alone argument.

Re: EasyPatterns Not so easy

LOL! I jump into helping without looking! Oops. But it's the thought that counts. Right? Hello mightycpa, You just misinterpreted the RegEx.

Re: Script on Dropbox causes occasional access violation

Go back to basics. If I want to save a file, I click a save icon. What commands in MS are you using to accomplish each task? That isn't a question for you to tell me. Reflect on the way you are going about doing each task. Break it down to basics. Get set up so you have the save button. Place an exi...

What ever happened to points?

Well, I pretty much used that up in the title.

We used to be able to give points to users that helped us out with a problem. Do we not give a crap any more?
Hey, I just wanna know what the 'IN' thing is now.
