Re: Random Issue maroon 4 hours ago
You can use the 'goto' command to go to a label, which is a text string beginning with a colon. You could do something like:

if ( $rand(1,2) ) == 1 goto goodbean
else goto badbean

code goes here
goto label123

code goes here
goto label123

code goes here
obviously, you didn't need the "goto badbean" since that label was on the next line. and same goes for the goto at the end of the goodbean code.

You can simplify your script by keeping your messages either in separate text files, or in a hashtable. hashtable has the advantage of being kept in memory, so you don't need a disk read each time. text file has the advantage of being easy to /play the text file and see a list of all your messages.

Also, the $read command has the random feature built into it, when you don't give it a line number to read. This example uses the 'n' switch because that prevents any word beginning with $ or % from being replaced by how they evaluate. i.e. a line in the text file containing $me would print the literal "$me" instead of using your nick.

var %message $read(goodbean.txt,nt) $+ 1,0Enjoy The Bean

This fills a variable with a random line from the text file. This way you don't need to keep adjusting your script each time you add another message. Notice how I appended the final portion of the 'good bean' message, so you don't need to put that on every line of the text. If you find it harder to put the Ctrl+K symbol into the text file when using something like notepad, you can choose a character that will never be used in any of your messages, and use that in place of the color code. For example, assume the character will be the asterisk, the text file would contain lines like:

Black Pepper *15,1( *4Black*15 *4Pepper*15 )
Garlic *30,1( *4Garlic*30 )

and then you can fetch random lines like this, while changing the asterisk back to the Ctrl+K symbol:

msg %beanch Hands %victem a $replace($read(badbean.txt,nt),*,$chr(3)) $+ 1,0 Ohhh You've Been BeanBoozeled

After you read a random line, if you need to know which line was most recently read from any disk file, the line number is contained in $readn

Something else you should change in your script is that your variables are being created as global variables which continue to be saved in your vars tab of the scripts editor long after your script is used, even though they aren't needing to be saved for later. You can make them be local by either using /set -l or using /var

var %victem $nick
var %beanch #PoulsKitchen

It looks like
set -kl %badcount + 1
is supposed to be a counter for how many times the bad routine has been hit. By using the -l flag, this creates the variable as a local variable which doesn't exist outside the ON TEXT event. What this is doing is defining the variable as the literal string "+ 1". If you want to increment a global variable, you can do it like: /inc %badcount

Re: $regml().pos $regmlex().pos maroon Yesterday at 02:17 AM
This behavior will be difficult to script around. The $2 parm requires a byte offset, but the .pos property returns a character offset. So, a script will be able to do $bvar(&binvar,$regml(foo,1).pos,length) to handle the match string only if the binvar contains only codepoints 1-127. When dealing with binvars, it would be helpful to have a $regml().bytepos property so the script can know the match's actual offset in the &binvar.

And, with returning offsets smaller than the $2 parm will also be confusing for addressing the binvar, so scripts will be forced to copy the section of binvar to a new binvar, into which they would search at offset 1.

Re: dll errors when clicking custom toolbar maroon Yesterday at 01:48 AM
You'd need to hope there's someone out there who uses this dll, which I've never heard of. A dll is like a collection of 1-or-more identifiers or commands wrapped up inside an external binary. Hopefully you have some documentation telling you which procedure names are inside the dll, and hopefully the docs tell you the syntax of how to use them.

The procedures inside the dll are similar to alias names inside the dll which can do things a scripted alias can't do by itself, and the procedures need to be called in their exact case-sensitive name. You can call them like a command, as in:

/dll filename.dll procedurename this is the $1- for the procedure
//echo -a $dll(filename.dll,procedurename,this is the $1- for the procedure)

We'll have a hard time helping you when your problem is that, not only are you not feeding the $1- to the dll's procedure, you're not even passing the name of the procedure either.

edit: if you have trouble figuring out that dll, perhaps better luck with spopup.dll http://www.xise.nl/mirc/

Re: /setlayer sets 0 if not using a number. maroon 18/09/20 11:49 PM
For this command, evaluating text as if 0 can make it difficult to get back into your client after this scripting error.

//var %setting 128 | !setlayer %setting $chan(1) | timer -o 1 10 !setlayer 255

If the 128 is deleted, the $null %variable causes the first setlayer command to be seen as "setlayer #channel" which is evaluated as if "setlayer 0" against the main window.

Re: mIRC Languages Epic 18/09/20 08:39 AM
Multi-language support for options and messages in mIRC

[Linked Image from i.ibb.co]

Many users have difficulty understanding English when configuring client options.
Is there a chance that someday there will be multilingual support in options and messages in the mIRC client?

This task can be greatly facilitated by providing such a translation option for users themselves through a language file.
Let's say: "mircdir/language/en_US.lang". This file can contain all the texts for options and messages in windows, with the help of which you can easily create your own file in your native and understandable language.
For example, copy a file in English and create your own file with the name: "ru_RU.lang" - translate all texts into Russian in it, and then it can be connected to the client in the options for translation into your language.

This will greatly facilitate the use of the client for many users around the world, raise it to a new level, and also greatly simplify the life of the developers of their project and scripts.

Re: Lock options missing maroon 16/09/20 03:40 AM
Have a look at https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/mirc/msl_injection for some examples of things to watch out for in scripts. Some of these issues are caused simply by people writing their own scripts in a careless manner, but these things can be found in publicly available scripts that people innocently don't know have these types of problems. While the scripts work perfectly fine when used as intended, you must be careful about how you use timers, specifically in how you use text not created by you. As you can see from these examples, even $calc could be used against you in a limited context.

You can create aliases to defend against some of the built-in /commands, but not against $identifiers. However, the ! prefix would make even this defense pointless. For example, "run" was one of the commands on the old list being blocked. You could make this alias which would intercept a script trying to use "run something", and would block it unless it did "run password something". However, if they used "!run something" it would execute the built-in identifier without checking for the existence of this alias, in the same way this alias evades another alias created to alter the format of the /echo command.

run {
!if ($1 != password) { !echo -a halt: attempt to use /run command without password! | !halt }
!run $2-

Some of the other things on the old "block" list were identifiers, which you can't intercept using an alias. You create an "alias decode" to intercept "/decode parameters", but it can't intercept "$decode(parameters)".

Yes, I have to say I misunderstood your original second point. It would definitely be good if there were a way (any way!) for the custom alias of a $dllcall() call to obtain the data value returned from the DLL.

Re: /nicklist control Epic 14/09/20 04:01 PM
I don't want to use another client, I like mIRC. But in my opinion, mIRC has long been in need of a significant update to its look and feel to compete with other IRC clients.

There was no request in my post for such an update that would affect the normal appearance of the client, I just suggested creating a logic command for the scripters to help them decorate the client in a more modern design with this command to avoid using third party (curves) DLLs. In any case, everyone who loves minimalism will stay with it with the default client settings.

I understand that this can be difficult to implement, but it needs to be done. This idea should be seen as additional functionality and design enhancement for the mIRC client, and I'm sure many scripters will support me in this.
Hopefully this client support will be officially implemented soon. How and in what format to make this command, I leave it to the discretion of the author.

Re: Getting write error - Need assistance Darkmnm 09/09/20 12:32 AM
Yes, Maroon explains it perfectly. Not sure exactly why it is not writing/updating the ini file once it's created. When there is a 2* in the ini file the checkbox in the edit box of the dialog is checked and if I manually change the 2* to a 1* in the ini file then open the dialog the checkbox is now unchecked. For some odd reason there is something in the code I cannot see that is not allowing the write/update to the ini file via the dialog.

Re: if statement parsing maroon 01/09/20 06:48 PM
FYI, I encountered something that's related either to this thread or to https://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/261001/v1-v2-inconsistancy

The $v1 being null relates to the other thread, however it would have been easier to catch if the parenthesis count reaching negative generates an error.

I generally do use parenthesis just because it makes the code easier to read, plus I don't need to remember where they're optional and where they're not. So, I'm more interested in the negative parenthesis count than the other issue. In this example the $v1 is set correctly in the /else condition but is $null in the $true condition

//var %a $rand(0,9) | if $right(%a,1) isin 13579) echo -a $v1 is odd %a | else echo -a $v1 is even %a
//var %a $rand(0,9) | if           %a isin 13579) echo -a $v1 is odd %a | else echo -a $v1 is even %a
//var %a $rand(0,9) | if            3 isin 13579) echo -a $v1 is odd %a | else echo -a $v1 is even %a

Correction: I see now that the $v1 in the $true condition isn't actually $null, it's carried forward from the prior conditional, whether it's a prior if() or while(). Here, when %a is an odd number then $v1 remains as abcd from the prior if()

//var %a $rand(0,9) | if (abcd == defg) noop | if %a isin 13579 echo -a $v1 is odd %a | else echo -a $v1 is even %a
