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

      Hello everyone,
      I have a radio button ($Radio1), which I want to disable as soon as another one get's checked (Radio5). (The system fails if the radio button i'm troubling with also gets checked).
      I know how to disable him:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_DISABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 128) But if i try to enable $Radio5 again, after $Radio1 isn't checked anymore, it fails:
      If GUICtrlRead($Radio1)=Not 1 And Not BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($Radio5), $GUI_ENABLE) Then GUICtrlSetState($Radio5, 64)  
      Anyone knows why?
