Beginner - Multi task and looping flow

8 posts in this topic

Hello guys.

This is my first post and my first time trying AutoIt.

Since I am not a programmer, I got some problems with my codes. I read tutorials and tried hard, but my last resort was come here and try to find some help.

Here are my questions:

1) I need to know how can I run tests simultaneous until one is true. In my case, I need to get something and store in a variable. And what I want is run a search, if it is not successful, run another research with another parameters. I tried something like:

If $Action > 0 Then
  $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
  If Not IsArray($StoreColor) Then
   $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
   If Not IsArray($StoreColor) Then
    $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
     If Not IsArray($StoreColor) Then
      $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
      Else

2) In the code above, what I need to do to my script stops the searches go to next step when it stores the info successfully?

For beginning, is that that I need to know!

Thanks!

As far as I can see your code is fine. It only does another search if the previous search was not successfull.

You just need to add some EndIf

If $Action > 0 Then
    $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
    If Not IsArray($StoreColor) Then
        $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
        If Not IsArray($StoreColor) Then
            $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
            If Not IsArray($StoreColor) Then
                $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
            EndIf
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndIf

If PixelSearch couldn't find the specified color it sets@error. So you could write as well:

If $Action > 0 Then
    $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
    If @error Then
        $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
        If @error Then
            $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
            If @error Then
                $StoreColor = PixelSearch("stuff")
            EndIf
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndIf

Thank you very much for your help!

Now I am a bit confused with some other things here.

AutoIt uses C++ language, right?

I think I will learn a bit more before start scripting. Any indication of book or material?

Autoit is programmed in C++, so C++ is obviously the superior language. However, Autoit is about 1000 times easier to learn and is also quicker to script.

I don't know many books on Autoit, but the help file is really useful, it's how I learned Autoit. And if you've tried everything and it doesn't work, then post your problem on the forums.

Hope this clears a few things up. :oops:

Another good source is the Wiki (just look at the top of this page).

Thank you everyone!

I had read some tutorials and watched some videos, but when I try to do something more "advanced", I get stuck.

I will follow every reference here!

Thanks again, guys!

Gere11,

Never be afraid to post here asking for help if you have tried some "advanced" code and it has not worked - that is what the forum is for! :oops:

Just post the code as you did above - although you might want to use [autoit] and [/autoit] tags to get the code coloured and easier to read. :bye:
