Send $variable from input

Recommended Posts

I need some help with my script. I would like to Send message that is a variable. The script is something like this

$inputName = GUICtrlCreateInput("Your name here", 168, 200, 193, 21)
$inputAge = GUICtrlCreateInput("20", 384, 200, 193, 21, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,$ES_NUMBER))

Send("Your name is " & $inputName & "and you're " & $inputAge " years old.")

After executing the script, it does this "Your name is 83 and you're 109 years old.".

Like, what? How can I make this work, I have searched through forums but nothing really helped.

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

The numbers you see are the ControlIDs of the inputs - you need to use GUICtrlRead to get the content of the control, look in the Help file to see how it is used.
