Automation Question [Noobie]

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am very new to AutoIt but not programming (mostly front-end)

I want to know if I can use AutoIt to go to a website -> Login -> message users. Also I want to be able to do multi-threading to basically be on multiple accounts at once messaging accounts.


Is this possible?

AutoIt is single-threaded.

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here
RegExp tutorial: enough to get started
PCRE v8.33 regexp documentation latest available release and currently implemented in AutoIt beta.

SQLitespeed is another feature-rich premier SQLite manager (includes import/export). Well worth a try.
SQLite Expert (freeware Personal Edition or payware Pro version) is a very useful SQLite database manager.
An excellent eBook covering almost every aspect of SQLite3: a must-read for anyone doing serious work.
SQL tutorial (covers "generic" SQL, but most of it applies to SQLite as well)

On iPad, excuse typos and briefness. The term "Multi threading " is improperly used here. Yes AutoIt can do all that, but if you want to have several browser tabs or windows open on the same site with different credentials, you must make sure the browser does not remember any of the credentials (usually by receiving a cookie). Browser capability is the problem here. Once that is resolved, you can have a single script or multiple (tab-dedicated) scripts, as you see fit. Also, be sure what you do is legitimate, both by this forum rules and by the web service Eula.
