# Help File/Documentation Issues.

## Recommended Posts

This post outlines correct usage of reporting a documentation error in AutoIt.

To report a help file issue, first navigate to Trac and create a new ticket. Ensure that the issue isn't present in the latest available version e.g. beta version and follow the following requirements for submitting:

• Change the "Component" option to Documentation.
• Change the "Version" option to whichever version you saw the issue in. It's preferred that you check the latest version .e.g. current beta, before submitting the ticket.
• Be as descriptive as you can when posting an issue, the more information you can provide e.g. where you found the issue and what it should be, will aid in the problem being fixed quickly.

Up until now those that have posted have done so in a clear and concise manner, so lets keep it that way please. If this starts to deviate in any way then I will be forced to adopt a more strict approach.

Issues with AutoIt:
For reporting an issue with AutoIt ensure you've isolated the problem in a small script that reproduces the error, assessed in the General Help and Support Forum that it's not a problem with poorly written code and then if none of those fix the problem, post to Trac for an AutoIt Developer to assess the issue.

ATTENTION! THIS IS STILL WORK IN PROGRESS!
This is the modified version of MrCreatoR's "Simple Library Docs Generator".
It allows to create CHM help files that look like the AutoIt help file.
This a very early alpha version - so it is miles away from being perfect. It's just something for you to play with.
The documentation is in the making and will be published as soon as possible.

Hello forum,
I have the problem that I can not use Firefox in combination with WebDriver when using AutoIt on some websites. Of course it does not work with the very website I need it to work with.
As soon as I want to open the desired website, I get the little robot icon which tells me that the "browser is under remote control" and the website stays blank.
I CAN open the website (www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de) but I get blocked when I want to go to my account, to be precise.

I am using AutoIt 3.3.14.5 I have checked my FireFox version. It is up to date. Also the special browser drivers like gecko etrc. are up to date too and everything works fine with the WebDriver demo.
It seems that another user also had the same problem, but the thread has already been closed and the users solution (setting security lower did not work for me).
I mean I can only choose between "standard", "strict" and "customized". On "customized I unchecked everything but it still would not change anything.
I also have checked Google Chrome and MS Edge. Same result.
I tried swiching profiles (only with FireFox). Same result.
I tried to acess a previously opened FireFox session where I manually logged in by using this code snippet:
_WD_Option('Driver', 'C:\Path\to\the\executable\geckodriver.exe') _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log trace --connect-existing  --marionette-port 2828') _WD_Option('Port', 4444) Obviously I adjusted the path of the geckodriver.exe but it did not work at all on my computer.
So far my code is really basically nothing but I can not even start to code. I myself am not a real coder and I know only the very basics like loops, conditions and variables.

Also, please understand that I am not trying to be lazy here. I do not want someone to code for me. Maybe the problem is very basic, but I just do not know how to eliminate that restriction. Is it something I need to uncheck in the browser settings or is it more complicated? If you need more information, I will be happy to provide those. If somebody has an idea or a solution, I would very much appreciate it. Edit: I am not bothered by the robot icon itself. I do not care about it. If I try to acess my regular ebay account: "https://mesg.ebay.de/mesgweb/ViewMessages/0" it works like a charm despite the notification that the browser is remotely controlled. My problem is, that the first website does not load for some reason ONLY when the browser is remote controlled. • I went to go edit my Au3Check parameters today, opened the SciTE4AutoIt3 helpfile to review the options, and could only find this: #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters= ;Au3Check parameters...see SciTE4AutoIt3 Helpfile for options Am I missing them elsewhere in the helpfile, or is this a circular reference? (My helpfile was last updated in the history on 23-3-2021) • By water Due to corona I have a lot of spare time at the moment. So I started to create a "real" help file fo the AD UDF (MS Active Directory). This help file should look/work like the AutoIt help file. Attached you find the first beta of the AD help file. Done so far: Similar functions have been assigned to a group (example: mail, mailbox and Exchange related functions have been assigned to the "EMail" group) Content, Search and Index tabs work Formatting is similar to the AutoIt help file Introduction page ToDo: Fill index tab Use folder icons Set the correct font size for the TOC Enhance the CSS to fully match the formatting of the AutoIt help file Create a documentation so you can create CHM files for other homegrown UDFs Create pages for the chapters - return an error message at the moment Upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft HTML Workshop Seems 1.3 is the latest What do you think? Is something still missing on the ToDo-list? Comments please AD.chm • By Ignacio Good day and thanks for your time, recently i made a script to help me to store some info, but i want it to also Move itself (the .exe) to a specific folder (in my case to documents, so i ahve a backupt of the exe), i tried using Filemove(), but i have to chose to run it as admin (even tough im the admin in both pc i tested it) to work, so i tried Filecopy(), and it does copy (and run the script as intended) and since i can simulate to "Move" it i decided to delete it with Filedelete() but im just unable to see how to make it work and delete it$date=@year&@mon&@mday $log="C:\logs"$copyto="C:\Users\admin\Documents" DirCreate($log) FileCopy(@ScriptDir & "\" & @ScriptName,$copyto) FileDelete(@ScriptDir & "\" & @ScriptName) $file = FileOpen($log&"\logfiles"&\$date&".htm", 1)
