Send Command e.g. DOWN $var times

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

i am possibly a idiot, but i can not figure out how the variable has to be used in AutoIt3.

This is AutoIt2 = Send, {DOWN %var%}

And what the hell needs AutoIt3 ? Send("{DOWN $var}") I think a tried any combination, i give up.

AutoIt3 is maybe or for sure more powerful, but it is sometimes a agony.

Thanks for help.

Try:

Send("{DOWN}" & $var)

or

Send("{DOWN}")

Send($var)

The helpfile has the answers on the Send page.

If you wish to use a variable for the count, try

$n = 4

Send("+{TAB " & $n & "}")

So yours would be

Send("{DOWN" & $var & "}")

:whistle:

WOW, help so fast... I am speechless !

Thanks !!!

But you have to admit, this is a horrible AutoIt3 joke. It was so simple in AutoIt2, and now... jesus.

Send("+{TAB " & $n & "}")

A For-Next Loop would be a workaround, but this is a one line job, so, thanks again.

It is still simple. You just need time to adjust to the new syntax. Once you do start feeling comfortable using AutoIt3, then you will find it easier then using AutoIt2 as AutoIt3 is so much more flexible with it's language structure.

You are right, surely, but if one can do it, each program is simple.

AutoIt2 was "naturally" logical. For non-professionals like me it was perfect. After three months without AutoIt there was no problem to write a little helper immediately.

I promise to learn. Because AutoIt3 is of course better/more powerfull.
