gui help

5 posts in this topic

I'm getting absolutely nowhere with the GUI in v3.

First off... is it an external app like in v2 or is it built in? (I'm finding conflicting posts).

Are there any examples/tutorials/etc for it?

Is it even implemented yet?

thanks

:D

Download autoit-v3.0.102.exe Its help file should show some examples.

The current GUI implementation is in beta testing an is in the "unstable" AutoIt versions.

Also try AutoBuilder which supposedly makes GUI creation easier.

Thanks CS. While I appreciate the AutoBuilder tool, I'd prefer to learn from the ground-up. I already downloaded that version of AutoIt3... but with the lack of GUI documentation - I'm very lost.

However, its now aparent that it ISN'T fully implemented yet, and that's fine :D I'll wait.

One question though: Is it expected to be able to be updated in real-time? That is... with autgui and autoit v2, I had to close and re-open autgui to update info and that looked very choppy. It would be nicer if I could update the items on the form without having to close and re-open.

Another EASY Q (a little embarassed)... what exactly is a "control"?

1) Help file Contents > AutoIt > Function Reference > Message Boxes and Dialogs > Gui Reference

2) Yes, it can be updated in real-time.

3) A control is anything such as a button, text box, checkbox, list box, and so on.

Hope that helps

thanks. Is a control also an image, a label, and other such non-interactive items?
