I was previously a member of this forum under the username Wombat. It's been years and multiple email accounts closed since then so I decided to start fresh and take a moment to thank you all... (Admins/Mods let me know if we need to discuss this...)
I started programming with AutoIT while working as a scrap catcher for a machine that chopped scrap into pieces for easier moving, I learned styles and gained strengths from some of the best members on this forum by reverse engineering their code. I gained the confidence of our IT manager by making a boast that I could write an application to replace a p.o.s. cobalt based app we were using on the floor at that time, needless to say I was way in over my head but he saw that I had potential and I luckily had built several other apps on the side that were of equal or greater value to the company. I've been working as help-desk for the past 3 years and writing software as well to facilitate the help desk and solve recurring issues with our users. I was given an office and moved out of help-desk about a year ago, after 5 years of hard work I've actually landed the title of Jr. Developer moving into mid level title/pay this year! The company has already set out an improvement path that sees me with 4 certs and a bachelors in 4 more years making great money. Before this I had only ever worked at gas stations, fast food and manual labor jobs. If you're ever worried about your life, want something more, or just want a change you can do it. It's not easy, not at all, but it's possible and software programming is a very rewarding field if you like to make things and see how others interact with them.
I utilized AutoIT to bring a company into the twenty-first century, away from paper trails and sticky notes improving the quality of life for the employees on the floor (where I started before learning AutoIT). I was given the go ahead to purchase visual studio and I learned VB.Net and built an awesome piece of Zebra labeling software (Utilizing ZPL code translated froma graphical editor) for our shipping department. Now I'm diving head first into C# and we have another programmer on board as we move on to MS Team Services and begin to tackle a sweet new project involving real time awareness of our product on the factory floor utilizing RFID and windows 10 tablets.
That's a long way to come in just 4 years, and I couldn't have done it without the gigantic heart this community has and the mentorship provided for people looking to get into programming.
So from the bottom of my heart, with immense respect.... Thank you so much AutoIT community
I turned to Autoit from AHK just because it support WinForm Application so well. The problem often haunts me that all the application in my job is WinForm. And it indeed help my work so much. Great thanks in advance.
However, I can't get the ToolTip text in the application of my company. Specifically，now I want to get the information about some data, however the information is all displayed in the tooltip on the scatter diagram which is made of those data.
Is there any advice ? Relative topics I have searched can't get any information about the winform tooltip...
Hello! I have a script in autoit which I made yesterday and Im still getting the hang of autoit
My question is, is there anyone here who would be able to explain how the convertion would go between AutoIt and C# when it comes to these lines of code, would I need to declare an array to show the $x & $y position? Also The LC is a function I have a bit down the code
While (Not($it_full)) $pixels = PixelSearch(257, 181, 276, 202,0xA19695,10) ;Check color If NOT(@error) Then LC($pixels,$pixels) EndIf $pixels = PixelSearch(693, 479, 729, 504,0x000001,3) ;Search If NOT(@error) Then ; MsgBox(0,"Title","Found It!") $it_full = True Sleep(8000) EndIf WEnd
Want to call .net func _Help::ShowHelpIndex.Here is the link in msdn:https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us//library/system.windows.forms.help.showhelpindex.
I wrote the script below:
$dll = DllOpen("C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Windows.Forms.dll")
$result = DllCall($dll, "none", "ShowHelpIndex","HWND", 0,"wstr","D:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt3CHS.chm")
If @error Then
ConsoleWrite(">--|error:=" & @error & "|--<")
ConsoleWrite(">--|$result:=" & $result & "|--<")
Can someone give some advices?
tks in advance
I would like to know (with a AutoIT function/UDF) if an executable is coded in .Net or not. I know that is possible but I don't know how. May you help me?
