Setting options with AutoItX3

4 posts in this topic

This must be a really simple answer but I can't get it :D

How do you set AutoItX options in V3? So far I have

Set oAutoit = WScript.CreateObject("AutoItX3.Control")

oAutoit.AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

However, I get an error about it expecting an "=" somewhere. Oh,

VBScript is funny about calling methods/functions. When you save the return value you need brackets, otherwise you don't:

result = oAutoit.AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

or

oAutoit.AutoItSetOption "WinTitleMatchMode", 2

OK, thanks for that. New problem now then, how about calling it from VBA?

Set oAutoit = WScript.CreateObject("AutoItX3.Control") gives me a "Run time error 424. Object required" error

I don't know VBA, but the WScript will be incorrect (WScript is the WSH/VBScript object not VBA)

Sorry, don't know.
