Accessing .au3 file from .au3 file

Recommended Posts

Rizwan606

Hello, I am new to AutoIT. I want to know that

"how can I access .au3 file in "My Documents/Downloads" folder from another .au3 file".

I know how to access the file from desktop from this code "Run(@AutoItExe & ' "' & @ScriptDir & '\file2.au3"')"

But can't access it in "My Document/Downloads" folder. Basically I want to Recursively call the same .au3 file again and again

Thanks

I'm not biting on the recursive part just yet but what you will have to do is get the path correct. probably

Run(@AutoItExe & ' "' & @MyDocumentsDir & '\Downloads\file2.au3"')

Same au3 you say? This should work too.

Run(@AutoItExe & ' "' & @ScriptFullPath & '"')

There is really not much to explain, @autoit exe is passed parameter with its a script file currently executing. Just look into help file by pressing F1 when you keyboards cursor is at @autoitexe for example.
