It would make sense to me to have one Ctrl_Z undo all changes to a string, rather than character-by-character.

314KodaApplicationBug ReportLowFile | Open: Split into two?UnconfirmedChris Haslam06.07.20111 Task Description

I think it would be clearer if File | Open were split into two:

  • File | Open Form
  • File | Open Forms in Script

The filter on the first one would be *.kxf, and on the second *.au3

I realize that Open Forms in Script is not optimum, but I think it would be an improvement on the present situation. It could have a hint: Open all forms referenced in a script.

321KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTAListView: code generation funnyUnconfirmedChris Haslam15.07.20111 Task Description
$ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("|", 128, 56, 257, 289, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_LISTVIEW,$LVS_NOCOLUMNHEADER))

was generated by Koda, and does not work with 2 columns: the second column shows as blank.

$ListView1 = GUICtrlCreateListView(" | ", 128, 56, 257, 289, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_LISTVIEW,$LVS_NOCOLUMNHEADER))

does work.

Koda then generated:

GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 50)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 200)

Apparently AutoIt needs a space before and after the |.

I consider this to be an AutoIt bug, but Koda is the servant of AutoIt, so ...

If AutoIt ever fixes this bug, Koda code generation will still be OK with “<space>|<space> “.

141KodaApplicationBug ReportLowAbility to generate more then one tab on one formPostponedAdmin07.11.2010 Task Description

While this is cause not too consistent bahaviour (in case of one tab - code generating in one manner, in case of more - fully different), this can be done with only pure Autoit functions. So probably we can give a try.

237KodaApplicationBug ReportLowListView PropertiesUnconfirmedChris Haslam04.05.2011 Task Description

I suggest that Images be called ImageList. Clearer

Alignment

I read the info on Alignment:

According to MSDN, the alignment of the leftmost column is always left-justified; it cannot be changed.

MSDN says in full:

If a column is added to a list-view control with index 0 (the leftmost column), it is always LVCFMT_LEFT. Setting other flags on column 0 does not override that alignment. Therefore if you keep inserting columns with index 0, the text in all columns are left-aligned. If you want the first column to be right-aligned or centered you can make a dummy column, then insert one or more columns with index 1 or higher and specify the alignment you require. Finally delete the dummy column.
  • Based on MSDN, Koda would not allow me to right justify column 0, Animal
  • So, following the MSDN procedure, I inserted another column and moved it up to be column 0.
  • I set Animal, now column 1, to right justified
  • I deleted column 0.

The form ran OK. The part of the generated code that does the ListView is here:

$ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Animal|Coat|Feet", 96, 384, 169, 113)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 0, 50)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 1, 50)
GUICtrlSendMsg(-1, $LVM_SETCOLUMNWIDTH, 2, 50)
_GUICtrlListView_JustifyColumn(GUICtrlGetHandle($ListView2), 0, 1)
$ListView2_0 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("Lucas|furry|paws", $List

I am wondering whether Koda would be able to do the work-around automatically, rather than the user having to do it manually. Perhaps Koda would need to create a zero-width column 0 so Object Inspector would allow the first column that shows in Collection editor to be right or center justified.

Just a thought.

249KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTab control: Hint being set for ccontrol on a pageUnconfirmedChris Haslam06.05.2011 Task Description

251KodaApplicationBug ReportLowToolbar | Style | tbsDropDownUnconfirmedChris Haslam06.05.2011 Task Description

A button with tbsDropDown does not show correctly when the form is run. Koda generates

_GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($ToolBar1, 0, 20, 0, $BTNS_DROPDOWN)

The AutoIt help says:

_GUICtrlToolbar_AddButton($hWnd, $iID, $iImage[, $iString = 0[, $iStyle = 0[, $iState = 4[, $iParam = 0]]]])

Is this a code generator problem? Or is _GUICtrlToolbar flaky?

278KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTAGroup styles - some suggestionsUnconfirmedChris Haslam19.05.2011 Task Description

BS_RIGHTBUTTON: does not seem to do anything. So perhaps remove it from OI.

BS_GROUPBOX: redundant in TAGroup. So perhaps remove it from OI.

WS_GROUP: irrelevant to code generation. AutoIt normally uses GuiCtrlCreateGroup. So perhaps remove it from OI.

281KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTAPic styles: some suggestionsUnconfirmedChris Haslam20.05.2011 Task Description

I suggest not showing SS_BITMAP in OI because it is redundant and, for AutoIt, incorrect: AutoIt supports BMP, JPG, and GIF.

For transparency, Form needs WS_EX_LAYERED, so perhaps this should be added to Form.

I do not see how SS_NOPREFIX applies to Pic.

284KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTreeview styles: some suggestionsUnconfirmedChris Haslam20.05.2011 Task Description

TVS_LINESATROOT is only intended by MS to work if TVS_HASLINES is also set, so Koda should check TVS_HASLINES when user checks TVS_LINESATROOT.

TVS_FULLROWSELECT is only intended by MS to work if TVS_HASLINES is not set, so Koda should uncheck TVS_HASLINES when user checks TVS_FULLROWSELECT.

TVS_NOTOOLTIPS and TVS_INFOTIP show in OI but Treeview Editor does not provide a way of entering tool tips. AutoIt only seems to provide ways of setting tool tips via GUICtrlSendMsg or by calling a UDF. So I suggest removing these two styles from OI for now.

287KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTab styles: some suggestionsUnconfirmedChris Haslam21.05.2011 Task Description

TCS_SCROLLOPPOSITE: I am not sure what this is supposed to do, but it does not seem to do anything. Googling didn’t help. Perhasp it should be removed from OI.

TCS_TOOLTIPS: There is no Hint property for a Page. Remove it from OI until there is?

See the doc for the many requirements. It would be good to have OI help the user not to choose combinations of styles that MS does not intend to work.

290KodaApplicationBug ReportLowTab Sequence (Order) Editor: a proposal UnconfirmedChris Haslam23.05.2011 Task Description

I am attaching a screen shot of what I have in mind. This dialog would be accessible from Edit | Tab Order and from each real (not substitute) control. From the menu, it would appear as in the screen shot. From a control, if the control is a group, the group would be highlighted. If the control is not in a group, Form1 would be highlighted.

Note that Koda would not show sequence numbers of tabstops. This would be internal to fd.exe. Users won’t need sequence numbers if they have the information visually. The user would no longer have to think the numbers. With the proposed dialog, he would get all the tabstop info in one place. This makes sense to me because tabstops are really inter-control rather than intra-control.

Optimally, Add would only be enabled when the Not tabstops .. list has focus and an item is selected. Up, Down and Remove would only be enabled when the Tabstops list has focus and an item is selected (and of course, Up would be disabled if the top item is selected, and Down would disabled if the last item is selected).

If this proposal is implemented, I would suggest:

  • In Properties, Tab Order would be replaced with Tabstop, which would be read-only boolean , with a ... button to the right to access the Editor
  • In Styles, WS_TABSTOP would be removed. fd.exe would continue to track WS_TABSTOP.

It is possible that, early in designing a form, a user may wish to make some controls tabstops, and others not; he may wish to refine the order later. So the Tabstop property could be read-write. If it is, I suggest:

  • If the user changes Tabstop for a control from False to True, the control would be placed at the end of the Tabstops list
  • If the user changes Tabstop for a control from True to False, the control would be moved from the Tabstops list to the Not tabstops, but can be list.
  • For Label (and other controls that cannot be tabbed to), the Tabstop property would be set to False and would be read-only.

I acknowledge that AutoIt tabs in the order in which calls to GuiCtrl functions that specify WS_TABSTOP appear in the script. The code generator could generate in the order shown: first the Tabstop list (with WS_TABSTOP set), then the others (without TABSTOP set), although this is not requisite.

I think that this proposal mostly improves the UI. It does clear up what I called an inconsistency in my previous post – although I may be wrong. I think that the code under the hood will change very little.

I have done some playing with (and thinking about) the names of the lists. Alternative names are: Un-tabable, Potential tabstops and Tabstops. I don’t like Un-tabable because it is bad English.

293KodaApplicationBug ReportLowForm style DS_FOREGROUND: Autoit only supports partiall...UnconfirmedChris Haslam26.05.2011 Task Description

Microsoft says of DS_FOREGROUND:

Causes the system to use the SetForegroundWindow function to bring the dialog box to the foreground

AutoIt does not seem to provide SetForegroundWindow functionality.

So I suggest the DS_FOREGROUND be removed.

WS_EX_TOPMOST provides “stay on top”.

303KodaApplicationBug ReportLowAU3 Import: BugAssignedChris Haslam19.06.2011 Task Description

I pasted this from the Clipboard (not expecting it to work):

	$testForm = GUICreate("Test Form", $vec[2]-20, $vec[3]-30, $vec[0]+10, $vec[1]+15,$WS_POPUP)
	Local $height = 17

	GUICtrlCreateLabel("Press Esc key to continue", 8, 80, 164, 40)

and clicked on Process.

310KodaApplicationBug ReportLow#Region includes pathUnconfirmedChris Haslam25.06.2011 Task Description

When code is generated for the attached .kxf, the #Region line is:

> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=F:\AutoIt scripts\Koda devel\Styles dialogs\List styles suggestion.kxf

I don’t know how the path got included in this line. I can tell you that I did the following early in developing the List script:

  • In Koda, saved the Group script as List styles suggestion.kxf in F:\AutoIt scripts\Koda devel\Styles dialogs
  • Changed Group to List in the form, and saved it again
  • Saved the Group script as List script
  • Changed the #Region line from Group to List
  • Exited Koda and ran it again
  • Chose Update script

Now Update script complains some of the time when I do Update script.

I know that on one occasion when I had trouble, I had most recently saved F:\AutoIt scripts\Koda devel\Listbox example.kxf. I had exited Koda and had run it again. I then probably opened the List script, then closed Listbox example.kxf. So for a time, forms in 2 different directories were open.

Sorry I can’t be more specific.

Now Update script is working OK. But I note that Generate shows the full path yet only fnam.ext is in the #Region line in the script.

I will try to be more specific when it happens again.

BTW The List form and script are still being designed.

316KodaApplicationBug ReportLowFont size inconsistent for Courier NewUnconfirmedChris Haslam04.07.2011 Task Description

The attached .kxf shows one font size in Design Area and a smaller size when run.

This problem may be related to another. This dialog shows as designed if I change the font size to 8.5 points in AutoIt. Koda won’t let me set the font size to 8.5.

320KodaApplicationBug ReportLowDesigner: How to keep Object Inspector on topUnconfirmedChris Haslam13.07.2011 Task Description

I am working on the ListView styles dialog. It is almost full-screen: about 40 controls.

I would like to keep Object Inspector on top of the Form. When I am working on controls on the right-hand side, it can sit over the left side of the form. How do I do it? OI keeps getting under the Form.

336KodaApplicationBug ReportLowHeight property value of certain fields (input, combobo...Unconfirmedvvoois18.09.2013 Task Description

I have been working with Koda for quite a few years
of the most annoying parts of the GUI editor is where i alter the height of inputboxes, comboboxes etc and adjust them to a value where these objects become smaller than the original value (input boxes have a value of 21, i rather cram the contents in 16 pixels which works just as nice).

Koda does accept it and adjusts on the form, but the minute i do something with the form in general or drag the object that is carrying it (frame) somewhere else, the height-value is being set back to the original
can also save the form with its values, but when i reload, all values are reset to the original values that seem to be the “minimum” for those objects.

I rather don’t have Koda to touch these properties in any situation, they are manually adjusted for a reason.
