Where to start

6 posts in this topic

All new to coding in autoIT, no idea where to start. Figured i'd start off by learning how to Read text from a window, notepad maybe? Store that text in a variable permanently, as in, if the script is restarted, it can still get that data.

Maybe find out how to auto find certain parts of that text, Like, automatically search for all F's in notepad, and replace them with 7's.

I am not good at reading long lines of help documentation. I learned C# simply by coding, i suspect i can do the same in this.

Slothic,

 

I am not good at reading long lines of help documentation

Then my telling you this will not be a lot of help. ;)

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at this excellent tutorial - you will find other tutorials in the Wiki (the link is at the top of the page).

However, there are some video tutorials on YouTube which might suit you better. ;)

P.S. And thanks for taking the advice about not asking the same question a third time. You have read and understood those Forum rules now I hope? ;)

So begin coding and show your code. Then we might help. :thumbsup:

Ah alas.. Forum rules, i cannot show you what work i've done so far on my previous scripts. So i've started a brand new one! Its all blank! Just like the amount of help i got from this reply :D

You obviously didnt read my post, i said i'm not good at reading help documentation. And especially not for a script so small that it would take someone 30 seconds to write but maybe an hour for me to learn to write it in 30 seconds. Soz man, but that's just not time efficient. I have very little free time due to work, i tend to want to relax, and not study new code when i do nothing else all day. And your little PS note, can go to my PM inbox if you have anything to add that's offtopic.

Pick a task you do often, write script to automate it, within the bounds of the forum rules of course, if you are going to need help here.

 

Ah, alas.. Finding F's in notepad and replacing them is something i do often, or should i say more specific finding $£$ in excel documents, and replacing them with USD EUR GBP, etc. But lets just start with notepad. :D

Slothic,

After the 2 threads you started earlier, replying in the tone you just used is not going to make you many friends here. :(

 

You obviously didnt read my post

As I quoted from it, I obviously did. ;)

 

it would take someone 30 seconds to write

We do not write code to order here - we help you get your code to work. Think of the old saying: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; give a man a net and you feed him forever". We try to be net makers and repairers, not fishmongers. :)

 

And your little PS note, can go to my PM inbox if you have anything to add that's offtopic

Definitely not the way to make a good impression. :rolleyes:

Anyway, as you obviously have no intention of learning how to code in AutoIt there seems little point in continuing with this thread either, so I will lock it just like your others. And please do not bother to post here again unless you actually want help for your own code - merely asking for someone else to do the work will result in your removal. :naughty:
