Built in functions

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

Are the built in functions in Autoit available anywhere? By this I mean the code for functions such as "FileChangeDir" or any other function the same way the user defined functions are stored in C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include.

Appreciate the input.

No, the built-in functions are written in C++ within the AutoIt stub and the source code is no longer released to the public. There is an old version of the source code which you can download from here, but it bears little resemblance to the current release. ;)

That is why we have UDFs - to allow AutoIt functions and extensions to be written by people other than the Devs. :)

Open spoiler to see my UDFs:

GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
