Re-using bits of programming without copy pasting

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I've been using autoit to write scripts and now that i have a set of working templates, i'd like to be cleaning them up.

I need some help on the following:

The script i wrote interacts with flash and my close window part is this:

(the location of the close window button varies, that's why i'm using a pixelsearch)

$point = PixelSearch( 900,15,1500,375, 15329512)
      If IsArray($point) Then
         MouseClick("left", $point[0], $point[1])

I'm using this bit of script a few times in my script and i wonder if i can call it like a variable or function instead of copy pasting it a bunch of times.

The script is working fine, but i'm a perfectionist and i think i skipped a few subjects on calling functions.

I'm preparing to be amazed by your knowledge :)

You can certainly put that code into a function:

; Where the code is now in your script you replace it with this function call

; And you add this function definition at the end of your script
Func _ClickCloseButton()

    $point = PixelSearch(900, 15, 1500, 375, 15329512)
    If IsArray($point) Then
        MouseClick("left", $point[0], $point[1])

Now whenever you need that particular code to run you just call the function. All clear? :)
