You mean like the helpfile? In case you haven't seen it already, the helpfile has every function available for your use, as well as sample scripts to show how each function is used.

Check out the Scripts and Scraps forum for more advanced script examples.

This is also an excellent place to start:

really?? I think the help guide is actually empty in this area, it helped me heaps but.. reading the forum is best, because forumers cover areas not available in help, or autoit 1-2-3. like mixing and matching..

Well... What would be the best place to start than lol? Autoit 1-2-3 or forums or what? I want to learn how to use htis for basic and advanced things... I want to learn at a reletively decent speed, what's the best way to go about it?

Here's how I learned the language:

1. Download AutoIt and beta (you have prod for sure, beta is here: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/beta/autoit/ )

2. Download Scite: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/downloads.php

3. Press each key 1 at a time to see what functions were available (or look through the helpfile....)

4. Start testing things. I found functions that sounded interesting and read the calltips for them (or I could have read the helpfile, but I figured it out fast enough), and just started putting things together.

Basically, since this language is all about automation, what is there that you want to automate? Is there anything you do over and over? Any puzzles you want to solve? All you have to do is think of something you want to do, and then test ways to go about doing it. I really don't see what you're struggling with... just start doing something.
