What's New in Version 24

Take Command 24.0:

 

Installer:

 

Take Command is using new version of Advanced Installer.

 

 

Take Command:

 

Version 24 is using a new version of the GUI framework library.

 

Version 24 is using a new version of the Scintilla editor.

 

Take Command no longer includes ANSI32.DLL and ANSI64.DLL, and does not inject them into console apps for ANSI support. On Windows 10, Take Command will use the built-in console ANSI support. On Windows 7 & 8, if you want ANSI in CMD you will need to use a third-party app like ANSICON. ANSI is still supported for TCC internals.

 

Take Command has a number of screen drawing improvements related to DPI scaling.

 

Take Command's output has been further optimized, increasing display speed another 10-20%.

 

The Take Command window will now "snap" to the screen edges when it is dragged near an edge (configurable with the SnapMargin directive in TCMD.INI; see below).

 

Take Command now supports Office 2013 & 2016 tooltip styles, and an optional TCMD.INI directive to use a different style (see below). Take Command will default to the appropriate tooltip style for the theme.

 

The "Administrator:" prefix for elevated session titles has been shortened to "Admin:" to allow more of the actual command to appear in the title.

 

The Take Command configuration dialog now lets you set the color for selected text (defaults to the inverse of the current color).

 

The Take Command VIEW menu has an option "Topmost" which will make the Take Command window always on top of other (non-topmost) windows.

 

The Tab windows now have an optional margin on the sides & the top/bottom to make it a little easier to read & select text. See the VMargin and HMargin TCMD.INI directives.

 

The Take Command configuration dialog has a new option on the Tabs page to prepopulate the Title and Command fields with the appropriate values for TCC, CMD, PowerShell, and bash.

 

The Take Command block marking (Ctrl + left button + mouse move) now also supports block marking with the Alt key instead of the Ctrl key, to match the Scintilla block marking in the IDE and TCEDIT.

 

 

TCC:

 

There are about 80 new command dialogs. Almost all of the non-trivial (i.e., not ECHO) internal TCC commands now have dialogs, and the existing dialogs have been enhanced with additional options. Note there are a handful commands (like DO, FOR, PDIR, and TASKDIALOG) which by their nature do not lend themselves to being implemented in a command dialog.

 

The attributes dialog (/A:=) supports the new Windows 10 Pinned and Unpinned attributes.

 

The ranges dialog (/[=]) now supports the ! (NOT) operator for date, time, size, owner, and description ranges.

 

File sorting (/O:xxx) in the file handling commands (COPY, DEL, MOVE, etc.) has some additional options:

 

cSort by compression ratio
iSort by description
oSort by owner

 

All of the command dialogs (/=) now have an "Edit command line" option if you need to modify the generated command line. (Use with caution - the command dialogs probably know the syntax better than you do!)

 

All of the TCC command line editing keys can now be displayed and remapped. The OPTION command has a new "Keyboard" tab, which allows you to add / edit / remove keys for each of the editing functions (more than 100 in all). You can bind multiple key combinations to each - for example, Paste has Ctrl-V and Shift-Ins. See the new key directives in TCMD.INI Directives (below).

 

Key aliases are now processed before the TCC key mapping, so you can override TCC's default behavior without having to use the TCMD.INI directives (NormalKey, NormalEditKey, etc.).

 

Added support for the HKCU "App Paths" registry entries.

 

The internal Lua has been updated to 5.3.5.

 

Added support for Python 3.7.1.

 

 

IDE / Batch Debugger:

 

Version 24 is using a new version of the GUI framework library.

 

Version 24 is using a new version of the Scintilla editor.

 

Text display is faster and the antialiased fonts are a little clearer.

 

The dark themes now have dark margins (profiler, breakpoints, line numbering).

 

When you move the debugger window, it will snap to the screen edges if it's within 10 pixels.

 

 

Help:

 

The v24 help is built with a new version of the help compiler (Help & Manual).

 

The help has been expanded with more examples, tutorials, and key words.  

 

 

TMCD.INI Directives:

 

HMargin=n (in [TakeCommand] section) - A integer value that specifies the left border margin (in pixels) for Take Command tab windows. The default value is 4. This option is set in the Take Command configuration dialog Tabs page.

 

SelectedColors=color - Take Command and TCC will default to using the inverse of the current color when you mark a selection with the mouse or keyboard. If SelectedColors is set, they will use that value instead. This option is set in the TCC OPTION command (for TCC console mode sessions), or in the Take Command configuration dialog (for Take Command tab windows).

 

SnapMargin=n - Snaps the Take Command window to the screen edge if the window edges are within n pixels. The default value is 10; 0 will disable the snap.

 

ToolTipStyles=style - A string value specifying the tooltip style you wish to use. (Take Command will default to using the tooltip style appropriate for the selected theme.) The possible values for style are:

 

Standard

Balloon

RTF

Luna

HTML

Office 2007

Office 2010

Office 2013

Office 2016

 

VMargin=n (in [TakeCommand] section) - A integer value that specifies the top border margin (in pixels) for Take Command tab windows. The default value is 2. This option is set in the Take Command configuration dialog Tabs page.

 

EnglishMessages=NO|yes (in [4NT] section) - If set to Yes, TCC will display error messages from Windows in English, regardless of the default language.

 

There are now keystroke directives for all of the command line editing functions. They can be added / edited / removed in the OPTION "Keyboard" dialog. The keystroke directives are saved in a new [Keys] section in TCMD.INI.

Command Line Editing:

 

Key aliases are now processed before the TCC key mapping, so you can override TCC's default behavior without having to use the TCMD.INI directives (NormalKey, NormalEditKey, etc.).

 

Ctrl-Win-T - (in Take Command) Start a new default tab window

 

 

New Variable Functions:

 

@COMPUTERNAME[n] - Returns a DNS or NetBIOS name associated with the local computer. The names are created at startup time. The type of name to be retrieved is specified by n:

 

0The NetBIOS name of the local computer or the cluster associated with the local computer
1The DNS name of the local computer or the cluster associated with the local computer
2The name of the DNS domain assigned to the local computer or the cluster associated with the local computer.DNS
3The fully qualified DNS name that uniquely identifies the local computer or the cluster associated with the local computer
4The NetBIOS name of the local computer
5The DNS host name of the local computer
6The name of the DNS domain assigned to the local computer
7The fully qualified DNS name that uniquely identifies the computer

 

 

Plugins:

 

The keystroke plugin behavior and API call has changed in TCC v24. Keystroke plugins are now called after key aliases, and before TCC looks for the default action for that key. The KEYINFO structure has an additional field pszKey at the end:

 

// structure passed to plugin functions to monitor keystrokes. A

//   keystroke function can be named anything, but must prefix a

//   * to its name in the function list (pszFunctions, above).

//   If the keystroke plugin handled the keystroke and doesn't want to pass

//   it back to TCC, it should set nKey = 0 and pszKey to an empty string.

//   The command processor will call the keystroke function with all parameters

//     set to 0 just before accepting input for each new command line.

//   The string pointers are Unicode

typedef struct {

intnKey;        // key entered
intnHomeRow;        // start row
intnHomeColumn;        // start column
intnRow;        // current row in window
intnColumn;        // current column in window
LPTSTRpszLine;        // command line
LPTSTRpszCurrent;        // pointer to position in line
intfRedraw;        // if != 0, redraw the line
LPTSTRpszKey;        // (v24+ only) ASCII name of key (for example, "Ctrl-Alt-Home")

} KEYINFO, *LPKEYINFO;

 

V24+ only: If the value passed in "nKey" is 0, the key is not a valid Unicode character, and the keystroke plugin needs to parse the pszKey string to get the name. The name will be passed in the format:

 

[Ctrl-][Alt-][Shift-]key

 

For example:

 

F12

Ctrl-F1

Ctrl-Alt-Left

Ctrl-Shift-F5

 

The keystroke plugin can modify the nKey or pszKey value and pass it back to TCC to evaluate the default action for the (new) value. If nKey is != 0, TCC will treat it as a normal Unicode character. If nKey = 0, TCC will evaluate pszKey for a valid keyname.

 

If the keystroke plugin handled the key and doesn't want TCC to do anything more, set nKey to 0 and pszKey to an empty string (write a null to the first byte).

New Commands:

 

TCEDIT

 

TCEDIT is a tabbed editor for editing all kinds of text files, including INI files and various scripting languages (with syntax coloring).  TCEDIT also supports reading from the clipboard (CLIP:), FTP, and HTTP sites. The syntax is:

 

TCEDIT [range .../C //EXIT /INI /START /O:[-]acdeginorstuz ] file...

 

/C - Create the file if it doesn't exist.

 

/INI - edit the current TCMD.INI

 

/START - edit the current TCSTART.*

 

/EXIT - edit TCEXIT.* (this is guesswork, since TCC hasn't found it yet)

 

TCEDIT defaults to line selection. You can select rectangular blocks by holding down the Alt key while selecting text.

 

TCEDIT supports multiple selections for cut and paste. Hold the Ctrl key down while selecting text with the mouse. When multiple selections are copied to the clipboard, each selection is added to the clipboard text in order with no delimiting characters. For rectangular selections the document's line end is added after each line's text.

 

UNLIBRARY

 

UNLIBRARY removes library functions defined with the LIBRARY command. The syntax is:

 

UNLIBRARY [/Q /R filename ... (function ...)] functionname ...

 

/Q - Don't display errors if the library function doesn't exist.

 

/R - Read the functions to delete from a file

 

UNLIBRARY supports exception lists (enclosed in parentheses) to specify library functions you do not want to delete.
