Code: Select all

help 'idh_scripting_comref.htm#idh_sc_tag';
For SC tag in the list of possible values for parameter type the extra tag shortcuts are all ex1.

Currently:
[pre]0=Label [Default]
1=Tags
2=Comment
3, ex1 = Extra 1
4, ex1 = Extra 2
5, ex1 = Extra 3
6, ex1 = Extra 4
7, ex1 = Extra 5[/pre]


Should be:
[pre]0=Label [Default]
1=Tags
2=Comment
3, ex1 = Extra 1
4, ex2 = Extra 2
5, ex3 = Extra 3
6, ex4 = Extra 4
7, ex5 = Extra 5[/pre]

1) idh_colorfilters.htm#idh_cfoverview -> "Pre-Filters" section:
"There is a way to pre-filter the files that a are checked"

2) Scriptref-> setcolumns() syntax: missing )
------------
3) Since scriptingef entries are sorted alphabetically, the rtfm section should come after rotate.

4) Also, it makes sense if the section titles of the following functions include braces, just like all other functions. :
attrstamp, copier, ctbicon, ctbname, ctbstate, datediff

From the changelog:
v14.50.0107 - 2014-09-29 10:26
+ SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "mode" that
returns the list mode of the tab.
Returned values:
0 = Browse
1 = Find (Search Results)
3 = Drives
4 = Network
5 = Recycler
Example:
if (tab("get", "mode") == 1) {
echo "It's a search results listing.";
}
The "mode" parameter is completely missing for the tab command in the help file :)

Well, the help has not been updated since then. :)

BTW, the numbers shown in the change log are (obviously) wrong. This is correct:

Code: Select all

    + SC tab enhanced: The operation "get" got a new data parameter "mode" that 
      returns the list mode of the tab.
      Returned values:
        0 = Browse

        2 = Drives

It is v14.50.0300. Every couple of weeks there are some hours where the change log here in the forum is apparently behind the download package. "Apparently" because the files are identical, only the version numbers changed. No need to worry. :)

Would you mind reordering the index the scripting introduction? ( ::help "idh_scripting.htm"; )
I feel they should be in order of appearance.
This is the suggested order by the way.
General Command Syntax
Using Quotes in Scripting
Commands and Functions
Quick Scripting
Scripting by Numbers
Step Mode: Stepping Through Scripts
Scripting and User-Defined Commands
Multi-line Scripts and Multi-Scripts
Script Files
Script Files for the Advanced
Comments
Variables
Variables Scope and Lifetime: Local, Global, and Permanent Variables
Nested Expressions
Math
Comparisons
Boolean Operators
Boolean Constants
Ternary Conditionals
Control Structures
If/ElseIf/Else Blocks
While Loops
Foreach Loops
Heredoc Syntax
Dereference Operator
Operator Precedence
Remote Control
Also, maybe shorten "Variables Scope and Lifetime: Local, Global...." to "Types of Variables" ? (Seeing as all other section titles are very brief.)
