Very basic questions about AutoIt and it's GUI capability

3 posts in this topic

I am brand new to AutoIt; although, I'm not new to scripting (I've used VBscript and DOS batch files in the past).

I've alway been fascinated with the idea of evolving to lower level coding; mainly for the benefit of having a professional-class Windows application GUI. It seems like AutoIt allows an actual graphical user Interface, settings, etc. I'm curious what are the boundaries/limits of AutoIt when it comes to it's GUI support. Is AutoIt's GUI similar to Visual Basic? I've never really been impressed with the way Visual Basic GUI looks. Does AutoIt have the ability to look like a full blown Windows application? Or, do I need to learn C/C++ for that?

I guess the answer depends upon what you want the GUI to look like, if you could show some samples, or links to screenshots of windows you're thinking of it would help to answer the question as to whether it's possible or not.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Back up and restore Windows user files _Array.au3 - Modified array functions that include support for 2D arrays.  -  ColorChooser - An add-on for SciTE that pops up a color dialog so you can select and paste a color code into a script.  -  Customizable Splashscreen GUI w/Progress Bar - Create a custom "splash screen" GUI with a progress bar and custom label.  -  _FileGetProperty - Retrieve the properties of a file  -  SciTE Toolbar - A toolbar demo for use with the SciTE editor  -  GUIRegisterMsg demo - Demo script to show how to use the Windows messages to interact with controls and your GUI.  -   Latin Square password generator
