Receive Input from Standard Yes/No Button

Recommended Posts


I have a question I'm sure is quite simple, but I cannot locate this information in the Wiki, Help file, the Autoit 1-2-3, or the "Learning to script with Autoit v3" tutorial. Basically I just need to know if the user clicks the yes or no button on a standard msgbox(4,"Choose","Yes or No?") I know how to do this with a newly created GUI and a custom button, but I don't think that's the same process. Here is my horrible attempt so far:

$verify = msgbox(4,"Choose","Yes or No?")
    If $verify = yes Then
    ElseIf $verify = no Then

I omitted the rest of the code for simplicity. I could be way off, but I don't know what else to try. :x Thanks in advance!

Use the "Return Values" shown on the MsgBox page in the Help file: :P

$verify = MsgBox(4, "Choose", "Yes or No?")
If $verify = 6 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Yes", "Yes")
ElseIf $verify = 7 Then
    MsgBox(0, "No", "No")

You do have a copy of the Help file, I presume? :x

To make it veeery simple

for autoit Yes=6 and no=7, so melba example explain it all. Check the help file at MsgBox and you will see that:

Button Pressed Return Value

OK 1






NO 7



So in your script just check for the relative value.

I'm a compulsive poster. When I post something, come to read it at least 5 minutes later after the posting, because I will edit it. I edited even this signature a few minutes later after I wrote it.
