I tried the Beta Maps and they are really cool. When will they be implemented in the normal version?
And will they be implemented better, like in Python?

Autoit Beta now:
Local $mMap[]
$mMap['Colorado'] = 'Rockies'
$mMap['Boston'] = 'Red Sox'
$mMap['Minnesota'] = 'Twins'

Python:
MLB_team = {
'Colorado' : 'Rockies',
'Boston' : 'Red Sox',
'Minnesota': 'Twins',
'Milwaukee': 'Brewers',
'Seattle' : 'Mariners'
}

Use search and look in Trac tickets.

diepfeile,

In short the current map implementation seems to work fine as a stand-alone datatype but it appears to be very buggy when used within another data container such as an array or another map or when ByRef is involved. As such Jon is understandably unwilling to include this flawed implementation in a formal release - and fixing the issue is apparently very far from trivial.

Also there have been several confirmed reports of simple use cases where entries in a Map suddenly get removed with no reason.
It's a pity but that explains why it's currently being discarded.  Use scripting dictionnary instead.

even that can get unwieldy when you start dropping dicitonaries in dictionaries, but here's a decent head start

Yeah hmm, found some weird stuff on the forum about them. Luckily I haven't encountered anything in my scripts, despite using them in nearly everyone of them, sometimes even maps in maps! Damn they are such a nice addition, but now I know why they are still in beta.

      Hello community,

      the SAP GUI Scripting offers excellent possibilities to automate your activities on the SAP presentation server. It is possible to record, replay and emulate the user input on an SAP GUI for Windows. It is very interesting for tests or only for recurring activities.

      To simplify the creation of SAP GUI scripts, there is the Scripting Tracker. It consists of two components. On one side of an Analyzer and on the other side of a Recorder.

      The Analyzer replaces the SAP GUI development tools and provides additional functionalities. The Analyzer component is fully available in the Lite version, which can be downloaded here: bebo.stschnell.de.

      The Recorder replaces the SAP GUI Scripting recorder and offers also extended functionalities. E.g. beside VBScript, it supports AutoIt and other scripting languages. With Scripting Tracker it is very easy possible to record your SAP GUI for Windows activities as AutoIt script. So it offers new horizons of integration between an SAP system and your presentation server.

      To get an impression look this video: http://youtu.be/jZQP6vwedsc

      Cheers
      Stefan
