Autoit Escape Characters esp. ";"

Recommended Posts



I'm new to AutoIt and I'm just messing around making a hello world program with VS using Autoit. 

The line I'm attempting to write is:  Console.WriteLine("Hello World");

I've split it up and have made progress to get this:  Console.WriteLine("Hello World") < notice no semicolon

How do escape characters work, what are they, etc??  This is what I've scripted up so far:

Send("""Hello World""")

Thanks for any help!

Send('Hello World')

There is no "escape characters" in AutoIt. You're making your life difficult. Read help under Language Reference > Datatypes > Strings.
