#include <Array.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
;~ #Include "../ScreenCapture/FindBMP.au3"
;~ #Include "../ScreenCapture/ScreenCaptureFixed.au3"
#Include "ScreenCapture/FindBMP.au3"
#Include "ScreenCapture/ScreenCaptureFixed.au3"
Global $aResult = _FindBMP("SCREEN","TOP_LEFT.bmp")
MsgBox(0, $aResult[2], $aResult[3]]

ERROR: can't open include file "ScreenCapture/FindBMP.au3".

I have that stuff in an Au3 that I saved on the desktop. On the desktop i have FindBMP.au3 and ScreenCaptureFixed.au3 saved and an image file TOP_LEFT.bmp. I also have a folder on the desktop called ScreenCapture and in it are FindBMP.au3 and ScreenCaptureFixed.au3. I also tried

#Include "FindBMP.au3"

Are you running the script from the desktop folder? If not, you're pointing to the wrong folder when you try to use the include statement. Also, Windows uses backslashes "" in the path statement, you're using forward slashes, not sure if it affects things, but you should stick with Windows conventions when working in Windows.


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.

Yes, I'm running the file from the Desktop and unfortunately backslash didn't work either.

I also realized that those scripts have "include once" directives in them, so I tried including only the FindBMP.au3 (since it's dependent on ScreenCapture). Unfortunately, that didn't work either.

These are the Scripts I'm using:

I verified for potential Typos and didn't find any.

I will now try #include <filename> while putting the files in C:Program FilesAutoIt3Include

Edit: Works!

Thanks for the links,

Are the registry edits really needed for includes that are in the same folder as the script you're running? I'd rather just dump it in the installation directory's Include folder then (and make a backup).

Prefered way:

In Scite pres Ctrl+1 --> SciteConfig --> define User Include Dir, for example: C:Program FilesAutoIt3Include_User

then click Save+Apply and copy your UDF to this directory. In this way you don't need to do any registry hacks.

This line #Include "..ScreenCaptureFindBMP.au3" is telling the script to look for the file one directory level up from the script directory, then in that folder look for the screencapture folder and in the screencapture folder look for FindBMP.au3. So, if running Windows XP it's looking in the folder "C:Documents and SettingsScreenCapture", on Vista/7 it's looking in "C:UsersScreenCapture". That's where your problem probably lies. Either user ".ScreenCapture" or just "ScreenCapture" if the include file is in the same folder as the script file.

EDIT: Fixed formatting because this forum software sucks

microera,

You need the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package from here - then you get the SciTEConfig tool as well. :D

Or you can do it manually as explained in the Adding UDFs to AutoIt and SciTE tutorial in the Wiki. :huh:

You don't need to do that, see BrewManNH's post. You are looking in the wrong folder.

Edit: You are not even the right guy. Shut up.
