First Step: Make many ' $chr(173) ' in editbox from your mIRC 6.12 ....
-> //echo -a $str($chr(173),10)
After, select all, and CTRL+C (copy to clipboard $str($chr(173),10) ) *** can be 10 letters More or Less.
Now open "mIRC Scripts Editor" (ALT+R) and PASTE it (CTRL + V) there , did you pasted really lol? The Scripts Editor doesn't show the CHR 173, but in editbox it is showed..
suxs.. if i wanna edit the chr173 from scripts editor ? i wanna see the CHRS ... correct this BUG please

Try it...
¡ BUG ! (both fixedsys font! too)


Token!

This is because Windows' RICHEDIT object treats that character as a control character of sorts. mIRC is incapable of handling this differently without writing a custom control. As an example, try doing the same in Window's Wordpad (WRITE.EXE).

This also doesn't have anything to do with the method of copying or producing these characters, so pressing ALT+0173 (multiple times) or pasting from the clipboard from any source will produce similar results.

//clipboard x $+ $str($chr(173),10) $+ x


Well. At least I won lunch.
Good philosophy, see good in bad, I like!

I pasted it to the editor while editor font was courier new,
nothing showed, I switched editor font to fixedsys and there
it was, right where I had pasted it. I removed it and fixed
the brackets that it screwed up, set font back to courier new
and tried to see if I could do it again. Regardless of what I
try, I can't get it to do it again.

do you know what the 173's are used for?

hehehe and now for some fun.
(i know im going to get flamed on this by someone)
try this out for size...


alias BotRelinkSpooler ; Internal command
alias BotDeLinkSpooler ; Internal command
; later in the code
alias ­BotRelinkSpooler­ { echo do what ever }
alias testthescript { ­BotRelinkSpooler­ }
alias someonesaddedalias { BotRelinkSpooler }

try > /testthescript
result > do what ever
try > /someonesaddedalias
result >

Anyone whoe interested, I added a ALT-0173 to the front and end of BotRelinkSpooler on these two lines
alias ­BotRelinkSpooler­ { echo do what ever }
alias testthescript { ­BotRelinkSpooler­ }

even if u look at it in notepad, most people well mistake it for minus sign, so unless actually copying it from somewhere in the script it still wont work for them.

Unless of course you know to look for it 173's anyone altering the script is going to be scratching there head for a while.

"do you know what the 173's are used for?"
Shy or soft hyphen (&Shy;) tells the application where a line break may occur and should only be displayed if a line does actually get broken at that point.

In the three lines below, chr 173 has been inserted into EACH "Hyphen" in different places.
(Using visible hyphens in place of soft hyphens for illustration)
1st line: Hyphenation-Hyphenation-Hyphenation-...
2nd line: Hyphen-ationHyphen-ationHyphen-ation...
3rd line: Hy-phenationHy-phenationHy-phenation...

you may well have had it at the end of a line it shows up then.

i have only just found out what it is myself of course, but i remeber once, ages ago, I must have somehow got one on the end of a file, for the life of me i couldnt understand why I couldnt get the cursor to the right hand side of this minus sign, in the end i just highlighted everything above it, deleted the file, and pasted it all back again. I thought at the time, it was just another windows anomally.

You're right, I just tried it at the end of a line and it was there
using fixedsys font, so that's also why it screwed up the
brackets, because it was following a bracket. Thanks for
clearing that up for me .. I would have still been trying to
reproduce it lol smile
