[Beginner] Help??

6 posts in this topic

Help please?

I'm very new to AutoIt and Koda and had a question:

How do you make it so that when you click a button a program is run?

I've had trouble with this, as I tried this:

If $button = "MouseClick" Then
Run("notepad.exe")
Exit
EndIf

To no avail. Whats the command you place where I had put "MouseClick"? It would be for when the button is clicked a program is run.

If anyone could help me that would be great :)

Thanks,

~LoLd

A bit more of your code would help. If you are using EventMode then you do it with an event handler and if you are using a message loop you do it differently.

a little bit more simpler

GuiCreate("Open Notepad",275,77,669,357) ;make a Graphic User Interface (gui)
$button1=GuiCtrlCreateButton("Open",91,6,50,20) ;make a button
$label1=GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Click here to open",70,30,100,15) ;make a lable
GuiSetState()

While 1
$msg=GuiGetMsg() ;get input from gui
If $msg=-3 Then Exit
If $msg=$button1 Then Run("notepad.exe")
WEnd
