User input

Hello

This is my first post on the forum, I just started using AutoIt. My first task with AutoIt is to create a script to delete a job from a system with use at the hospital I work at. It requries to know the user name of the person running the job. I am looking to have it prompt me for the username with a inputbox. Then take the name I enter the box and use the send command to later enter the name. I was trying Local $n1 = InputBox ("Delete Meditech Job", "Enter username") then send ("n1)" with no luck any help.

Thanks

Flint

Post your code, or it's difficult to know.

But my ESP tells me that you need to hold $n1 in a Global variable, unless you are immediately

passing it to the "delete" function from the "get username" function.

These type of scripts are notoriously shaky at best, and it's difficult to see what it is

supposed to do.

I'm going to have to guess again and ask if the line..

Send ("$n1")

is what you are having problems with ?

And if so, what is it sending?

In any case, please explain exactly the problem.

Yes the Send ("$n1") is the problem, it is sending $n1. I am trying to get that to be what ever the I type in the Inputbox
