How to get started

Recommended Posts

Guest winifred

I would like to create a script to launch my video editor and move to the create disk window and launch the add file dialog. Pretty simple. But I have only succeeded in launching the program. I have read the tutorials, but no luck. There is a visible text for the screen I want to launch, but I do not understand how to send it as a command.

Also, what is the advantage of scite gui? Should I try it?

Thank you

you probably need to look into the Au3info tool that comes with autoit, also function(s) to look at, Send/ControlSend/ControlClick etc...

I use SciTE all the time for autoit scripts, I think it's worth looking at.

SciTE for AutoItDirections for Submitting Standard UDFs


Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I used au3 record in scite and it worked with mouse clicks, but I would prefer to use text since it would be faster and not subject to window position. How do I record a text command, or for that matter, know what the command should be? Are the only text commands available, those that use alt?

Here is what is in my info window for the active window that I want to automate. I want to use a text command to launch "Create Disk". Is this possible? I was able to do it with mouse recorder. Thanks

Welcome to the forums!

You might want to give this command a try (filling in the title):

controlClick("(window title here)", "Create Disc", "Create Disc")
; (this should also work...)
  controlClick("(window title here)", "Create Disc", "Button19")
; (...or this...)
  controlClick("(window title here)", "Create Disc", 3173)
