New to AutoIt Help

5 posts in this topic

I am new to AutoIt. I have some basics in Java. Can someone explain to me the basics of AutoIt, its methods, function, etc. Is it similar to Java? Do you think I can get use to the language here or do you recommend another program? Thanks! :D

I want to write an application on Windows:

When a mouse comes close to an icon on the desktop, the icon will automatically grow to twice of its original size.

Read the help file. Look at: Tutorial and Language Reference.

Also, look at these tutorials:

AutoIt 1-2-3: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=21048

Learning To Script with AutoIt V3: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=84960

If you put in more effort, even searching this forum would have netted you a result.

Its possible but you are going to have fun knowing when something is close. It would be much simpler if it grew when the mouse was on it.

AutoIt is more like VB than Java but like learning any other languages the principles are the same it just different syntax, funtions and ways of doing things.


Post your code because code says more then your words can. SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y.
