Classes and Objects

15 posts in this topic

Hi ppl :ILA3:

I've been doing a few things in AutoIt :whistle:

Since I'm formatted to work with classes/objects/interfaces I've discovered AutoItObject :robot:

Now I've been doing some things with AutoItObject, yet I miss some things like the auto-complete in SCITE and the automatic help invocation from SCITE :mad2:

Also I think OOP is of such importance now (it is now supported in most languages) that it deserved to be supported natively in AutoIT :rambo:

?is this planned

?is there some caveat preventing this to be done

:ph34r:

No. It isn't planned. Yes. The caveat is that AutoIt was never meant to be an industrial strength programming language. It's an automation language. That doesn't mean we can't try to push its limits though. Just stick with AutoItObject. I heard a lil' birdy say that things that are available in AutoItObject may or may not be available in AutoIt at some point in the distant or not too distant future. Besides, oop is not the only way to program successfully.

Just be aware that things which were in the latest beta will probably not end up in the next stable release. If one was to be released.

I think that needs updating, don't you?

The list still looks valid for "bare" AutoIt. AutoItObject shows that the language can be enhanced with "addons".

No, AutoItObject shows that the only real limitation of AutoIt are developers. AutoItObject didn't enhance the language.

Better wording would be "extend the functionality of the language". Meaning: You can do more than bare AutoIt can do.

"real limitation of AutoIt are developers". D'accord.

And: Sorry for my bad English.

What do I know? I just copy and paste. For what it's worth - AutoItObject enhanced my life.

AutoItObject enhanced them?

Them who? I'm not aware of any AutoIt developer who showed any interest in AutoItObject, even as concept. So, no.

Sorry, I was on about the community, not the developers.

Aha, maybe some individuals from the community then, yes. 7 or 8.

I think OOP it's a very strong concept... :dance: and I learn a very useful one. B)

I started also with functional programming (even lower, with assembler/machine_code) and evolved slowly to OOP, now I can't think of not using OOP. :think::guitar:

OOP it's also a small footprint implementation... It's more a concept than a library (you can confirm this by investigating AutoItObject.au3) muttley

I've already used AutoItObject and for basic OOP it's enough... :zorro: I just wish that support come embbed...

So for now the inclusion of AutoItObject in the language, natively, it would be a gret improvement...

At least for SCITE autocomplete and HELP + ERROR integration :ILA2:

Will you please stop with all the emoticons? Most of them you're using don't even fit into what you're saying, so it makes you look like you're 12.

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.
