Is there anything like a batch file "goto"

I have a input box that says Enter "(Q)uick" or "(F)ull" and I want to test for whether Q

or F was input and if not, then re-ask the question. If it is Q or F then continue the

execution. OR maybe a sample of how to it or point me in the right directio in help.

Thanks much

AutoIt uses functions, have a look at the help file and do the examples

Here's one way of doing it:

While 1
    $Test = InputBox("Test", "Enter (Q) or (F)")
    If $Test = "Q" Or $Test = "F" Or @error = 1 Then ExitLoop
MsgBox(0, "", "You entered: " & $Test)

There are, of course, many ways of going about it, this is the one that I came up with off the top of my head.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

No, you need to use structured coding like this:

While 1
    $sInput = StringUpper(InputBox("Question", "Enter 'F'(ull) or 'Q'(uick)"))
    Switch $sInput
        Case "F", "Q"
        Case Else
            MsgBox(0, "Oi!", "I said 'F' or 'Q' - why did you enter " & $sInput & "?")
MsgBox(0, "Congrats", "You entered " & $sInput)

All clear? :oops:

Keep working at it :oops: . I came from a windows scripting background, and have been working in AutoIT for about 3 weeks. I believe there isn't much that AutoIT can't do. You can build a menial script, or an enterprise app with it.


“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”
