Setting command line parameters while debugging?

I'm developing a script that will require a few parameters, but I need to run with the debugger. Is there a way to set those parameters so they'll be available for the debug session?

Re: Fonts gotcha

Oh yeah, I didn't even think about themes. Yikes! Maybe I should create my own theme and simply move it to new computers.

Are database transactions supported?

I'm looking a doing something with record locking and it looks like they recommend using transaction versus auto-commits. Just curious if that is supported in any form?

Img matching problems

I've got two different computers and they don't handle an image the same. It is a word of text with a checkbox next to it. One finds it on exact match, one doesn't. Okay, so small differences in fonts, I guess. If I try the CCOEFF img match it gives me false positives. I'm just trying to see if a ti...

Fonts gotcha

So, on my development machine I had installed Clear Type fonts. Then when we got a production machine, it wasn't matching images because the fonts were different. Eventually I remembered why! Is there any way to find out what fonts Windows (7) is using on a given machine? When I distribute my compil...

Re: Time-based Event?

Hmmm... maybe, although I wonder what that'd do to performance if, as the docs describe, it executes continuously. Does it allow the rest of the program to run?

Time-based Event?

Is there any way to set a timeout threshold for, let's say 90 seconds, and then when that 90 seconds is up, transfer control to an event handler? Kind of like the OnEvent, but time-based? I was thinking that would be a way to see if I've gotten stuck somewhere with some unanticipated condition I hav...

Which function?

I have a very large script and it'd be really nice to know which function call is missing a parameter as per this message: In general, it is kind of difficult to identify where errors are happening when you use include files. At least with my limited knowledge I have so far. Anything you can do to m...

Compiling problems

So, got my huge script ready to release and went to compile it and got a blue screen of death. Tried again and this time it kicked off my anti-virus software and gave me this error. My script is pretty big. 5 include files, loads of images and some external files. Any thing I should know?

Also the indenting inside of SRT statements seems to default to 2 spaces.

Code: Select all

SRT>abc
  first indent always starts here

Re: Finding text within any window

Of course, just after I posted that question I found the FindWindowWithText SRT. I'll try out your script though!
