tutorial scripts not working

Recommended Posts

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Don't know how this wrong code made its way into the tutorial. There are no @@ macros and the #include statement is missing the name of the file to include.
Please try:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
MsgBox($MB_OK, "Tutorial", "Hello World")

You always find the most accurate information in the help file.

The @@Macros are used (as far as I know) to format texts in the .chm file. They are not, as @water already wrote,  valid statements in the AutoIt source code.

; wrong syntax :
@@SyntaxHighlighting@@ #include MsgBox($MB_OK, "Tutorial", "Hello World!") @@End@@

They may not have been removed for display as an HTML page in the browser 🤔.

True :).

@kirb :

To open the AutoIt Help in the SciTE Editor press F1 (Caution : the script must have been saved at least once ! ).

If the cursor is located on a valid AutoIt command, help will be displayed directly for this. Otherwise, a general overview will be displayed. Here you can also find the mentioned 'helloworld' tutorial with the correct syntax.

Correct....  the build scripts will take the code and put it into SciTE and the export it as HTML to get for proper syntax highlighting/coloring. 😎
@kirb Just ignore those. ;)

Just for curiosity : Like @water, I would be interested to know, why the name of the included file is missing in HTML (but it's not of major importance :)).

Looking at the details I am wondering whether the correct version is copied to the Website as we have a  html and web_html subdir. The current build copies html while web_html seems to contain a proper version of the file.

@jpmdo you know this by any chance?  (I haven't been modding with these for a very long time ;) )

The source is

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

... so the browser will try to interpret the "<....>"  part but not show it. Have a look at the opened page's source. ;)

It look like the web_html has not been uploaded but the ;html was

Yep ... that was my point indeed ;) 
So we just need to adapt the upload part of the buildscript to use the appropriate subdir I guess.
