Making my first AutoIt GUI; Gui Builder vs Koda

Recommended Posts

cappy2112

I've written a fair amount of AutoIT code, and have it mostly debugged, now I need some buttons, and a directory browser.

Does any documentation exist or any examples for the GUI Builder or Koda Form designer?

I know there are examples inthe Gui directory, but I dont see anythin on how to use the two tools and integrating their code into an existing non-gui program.

Well I actually played with Koda the first time the other day... Outstanding job those 2 guys did!!

Open Koda, drag and drop to make your GUI, save the file as a .kdx (I think), then click F9? Or Tools / Generate Code... you will see the code for the GUI you just did.

Pretty much the same for GUIBuilder if I remember correctly.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Yeah- everything about AutoIt, Scite and these tools are amazing, if you can just figure out how all the pieces go together. My hat's off to the designers.

I think they used C++ Builder to make Koda. I see references to C++ Builders components inheritance structure. I love C++ Builder, I just don't like C++ :-)
