The working example code in the Help file should help you out as well.

dragonheard,

No-one minds you being new to coding (we all were at one point ;)) but what you are asking is extremely basic.

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) should help you understand how AutoIt works. The excellent tutorials that you will find here and here will also help you get a grip on the very simple script you are trying to produce. :)

If after reading those various reference works you cannot understand how to do what you want then, to be blunt, you need to consider if coding is for you. Coding requires a certain ability for logical thought and problem solving - if you cannot find the answer to this simple problem within those tutorials then you cannot hope to advance to more complicated scripts. No-one here is pushing you away, but we are not going to provide a personalised tutorial service for you. ;)

P.S. You might like to look at InputBox in the Help file. ;)

Read the help files, Reread, and read again! watch a few tutorial videos on youtube even.

Where as this forum is extremely helpful most of people here aren't going to help those who don't provide any effort. Always post your attempts as they make it easy to see what you want and what you're doing wrong.

Straight from the Documentation. Even includes an example.

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/InputBox.htm

If you have trouble understanding the wording or terminology be specific by what confuses you.

I'd much rather teach you how to read the documentation then teach you how to correctly use each function.

i downloaded the how to script with autoit package thanks for the links though i have a few problems

1: english isnt my main language so yea i do speak it sort of but i dont understand every existing word...

2: in 1 script the script had to wait on a window with text (notepad) so i wrote: winwaitactive ("Naamloos - Kladblok","Wilt u de wijzigingen die zijn aangebracht in Naamloos opslaan?"

and then i wrote send("!n") but it doesnt do anything...

run ("notepad.exe")
;WinWaitActive ("Naamloos - Kladblok")
WinWaitActive ("Untitled - Notepad");the caption for your notepad in the taskbar
send ("this is some text")
winclose ("Untitled - Notepad");same as the above caption
WinWaitActive("Notepad","");dialog window title of warning before closing notepad
send("!n")

This works for me, however this is an English version of the debug.

Never used winclose() before now, thanks for the heads up awareness.

I suspect you are not matching the name string criteria properly. So that the program just waits forever attempting to match a string that isn't going to occur. There is a window title match mode option too, let me find that for you real quick.

The match mode command is here:

opt("WinTitleMatchMode", $x)

Alters the method that is used to match window titles during search operations.

1 = Match the title from the start (default)

2 = Match any substring in the title

3 = Exact title match

4 = Advanced mode, see Window Titles & Text (Advanced)

-1 to -4 = force lower case match according to other type of match.

where $x is -4 to 4 depending on your choice of match mode.

So if you are have trouble with the character specification something like:

opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -1); could help by ignoring case of your specification.

Try to use info which is consistent throughout different variations of Windows.

From the beta version of the help file, notice how I use 'CLASS' description instead of the title of the window.

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Run Notepad
    Run("notepad.exe")

    ; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
    WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)

    ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the Notepad window.
    Sleep(2000)

    ; Close the Notepad window using the classname of Notepad.
    WinClose("[CLASS:Notepad]")
EndFunc   ;==>Example

      I've made a form in Koda where I make a list of 3 user definable elements that I want to be able to replicate with a button press so a user can add data that can be used as part of the program.

Since the fields can number over 30 locations in some examples I am thinking about having these items in a scrolling window. What is the best way to do this and can auto it add a variable while running by pressing a button?

      Hi,
      I made a small blunder with my code. I created the GUI under 1920x1080 resolution however, my user is configured to ONLY 1080x720 and cannot go any further than that.
      What do you guys think is the best way to correct this one? Resolution mathematics is something that came to mind however I do not have access to his PC to check  from time to time if  my estimation is correct and the resolution on my PC doesn't go down to 1080x720.
      Please help.

      Hello, and good day
      Im trying to make a sentence autocompleter so that when you type certain words (or commands) the scripts, and im in need of help/pointers
      That is what i have at the time and the issues i have currently is that:
      - I cant find an easy way to reset the counter to 0 in case a different letter from those are pressed ( tried NOT _ispressed but i think i got it wrong)
      -Is there another way to detect the key press that _ispressed? (i couldnt find it so far), since i feel like it is too clunky ( although maybe that is just me and my way to code)
      - for some reason the hex code (6F) for the / (divide nume pad) isnt working for me
       
      Im thinking of making a text file with some words to use them as variables/comparations  (so that at least removes the need of a variable for the words in the script) and make the script make a temporal text file to save the input and then compare it with the other one. But i dont know if that is a good approach.
      Thanks for your time and patience.

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,
      Davida Crozier

      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.

      Hi everyone,
      GUICtrlSetState Function example ,i found $GUI_DROPACCEPTED isn't working in windows10 x64(windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64).
      if the example put to windows10 x86 or windows xp, the $GUI_DROPACCEPTED is effective,
      the AutoIt Edition is v3.3.14.2.
      any ideas? thanks you.
