Create own library [solved]

Recommended Posts


Good day!

Sorry about my english.

I would like to create my own library with the functions that I use in most of my scripts.

I don't know if it is possible, maybe some one can throw me any clue about.

The idea is to make a script (? library?), with many functions, and call this functions from my others scripts.

Thanks in advance for any help.

What you are looking for is a personal include folder. :idea:

AutoIt looks for #include files in 3 places:

- 1. C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include (if you have a standard installation).

- 2. A user-defined folder (which is what you want). :)

- 3. The script folder.

So how do you tell Autoit where the user-defined folder is? Two ways to do it:

- 1. If you run the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package, you can use "SciTE Config" from the <Tools> menu to set the folder. (If you do not have the full package, then I recommend that you download it from here and install it. You get a load of goodies to help you code in AutoIt. :) )

- 2. Or you can edit the registry directly. As it says in the Help file:

There is a special registry value that can be created at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AutoIt v3\AutoIt" called "Include". It should be a REG_SZ (string) value. The contents of this value are a semi-colon delimited list of directories that should be searched for files when resolving #include's in addition to the standard locations.

Once you have defined the user-defined folder, you will need to save files containing the functions that you want in that folder. Then when you need a function, you can simply #include the relevant file.

I hope that is all clear - ask if not. :(

Thanks so much!

I've just keep searching and found the include "method".

It's clear in help, but with your explication i've understand it even better.

If someone looks here, I recomend for search the function include in help, but anyway I've the example of the help:

;;;SCRIPT= TIME.aue3;;;


Func myFunc()

MsgBox(0,"", "Hello from library.au3")


;;; SCRIPT.AU3 ;;;

#include "TIME.au3"



One more time, Thanks! For your fast and "accuracity" reply.

PD: Sorry, I'm spanish, and my knowlegde about french is horrible unfortunally.

P.P.D: Now I understand better your great reply. I've make my own folder and put there some files, It works great!
