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,
       
      I have a script which uses a GUI with two buttons. It gets shown and hidden., and pressing the buttons (including their hotkeys) highlights the button, making you able to press enter the next time.
      However, I don't want that.
       
      I've tried using WinActivate() to make enter do things on another program, but the enter is still tied to the AutoIT GUI (which still has the button highlighted).
       
      Here's the important part of my code:
      $MY_GUI = GUICreate("Check.exe", 400, 300, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 200), -500) WinSetOnTop($MY_GUI, "", 1) ;Keeps the window on the top. $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Pass (Ctrl+P)", 40, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Fail (Ctrl+F)", 240, 250, 120, 40, $WS_GROUP) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 12, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") $GUIText = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 10, 360, 230) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 13, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif") GUICtrlSetData($GUIText, Execute($stepMessage[$step])) $showGUI = "True" GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While($showGUI = "True") $buttonPressed = GUIGetMsg() Switch $buttonPressed Case $Button1 ;Pass $pass = "True" $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) Case $Button2 ;Fail $buttonPressed = 0 $showGUI = "False" GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) While($message = "") $message = InputBox("Check.exe", "Please enter the reason the step failed." & @CRLF, "", "", 300, 200, ((@DesktopWidth / 2) - 150), -400) WEnd Return $message EndSwitch WEnd Local $pass = "False" ;Whether "Pass" or "Fail" was pressed. Local $failLog = xxxfunc($pass) ;Returns a message to log if the step failed. ##THIS CALLS THE CODE SNIPPET ABOVE## FileWrite($file, _Now() & ": Step " & $step & getStatus($pass) & "and took " & Ceiling(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000) & " seconds." & @CRLF) If($failLog <> "") Then FileWrite($file, "Logged comment: " & $failLog & @CRLF) EndIf WinActivate("[TITLE:ProgramName]") ;Hotkeys: HotKeySet("^{p}", "pressPass") HotKeySet("^{f}", "pressFail") Func pressPass() $buttonPressed = $Button1 EndFunc Func pressFail() $buttonPressed = $Button2 EndFunc  
      The GUI's button/hotkey pressing works correctly.
      The same WinActivate code works in another script of mine.
      Together, WinActivate is not take "Active" away from the GUI's last-pressed button. How do I fix this?
       
      Thank you in advance.

      Dear AutoIT Community.
      I am currently working on a program that will display lots of images in a scroll down GUI.
      I create the GUI based on the number of images, which works fine.
      But all images I place using GuiCtrlCreatePic above a threshold of around 32000 pixels (cant say exactly) are placed at negative locations and finally will reach 0 again
      and will then populate on top of the images placed there before.
      For $i = 1 To $Images[0] ; Get picture dimensions $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($ImgRep & $Images[$i]) $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) ; Resize & place images in GUI $Pic[$i] = GUICtrlCreatePic($ImgRep & $Images[$i], $Spacer, Round($yPos, 0), $MaxImgWidth, $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX)) $yPos = $yPos + $MaxImgWidth * ($iY / $iX) + $Spacer $log = $log & "|" & $yPos $currentlut = $Images[1] Next I have found a limit at 32767 pixels for some GUI elements when googling around.
      Can someone tell me how to circumvent that?
      thanks!
      cheers

      Hello Guys this is my gui and i need the numeric value typed in the highlighted  inputbox. if this value is greater than 1 i need to perform some operations
      \
       
      Here is the summary about that field which i got from wininfo tool

      i tried writing the code as shown below.. but the msgbox is popping up empty value..when the same code is pasted under some button action i am able to access the value present in the field..but when placed alone as written in the attached script i am unable to fetch it...

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)

      Not sure if this is possible or if someone has already tackled this. Is it possible to embed PowerShell into a GUI? Autoit is great for quick function but sometime I need to run a command thru PowerShell. It be great to have PowerShell console embedded into the gui.
