How to display a 2-digits variable in Dos command

Recommended Posts



I'm new to autoit and I have a problem to print a "2-digit" variable in DOS command prompt.

Here is my code.

Dim $i


While $i <=11



Send("{" & $i & "}")

sleep (2000)


send("type digonly.txt|sed -e 1,3d -e5,8d > 9_")


sleep (1000)






When I run the above program, the variable,i, should start from "10" but as I send i to DOS prompt by using "Send("{" & $i & "}")" the result output in DOS prompt is "1".

I am so confused that why it cannot display "10" in command prompt.

Please some one help me. Thank you so much!

I don't know if this is why it doesn't work as expected, but you have the syntax wrong for the WinWaitActive command.

Function WinWaitActive

Also, the WinClose syntax is wrong too.<br><br>Edit: For the actual problem though, try this. Change the value here, SendKeyDelay (Option), it defaults to 5, try 10 or higher..<br>

I changed Send("{" & $i & "}") to Send(&i) and problem solved.

As to other incorrect usage, I will look into it.

Thanks for the reply.
