Newbie questions

Good day from just outside Washington, DC -

I'm a newbie and as such am probably reading the on-line tutorial too literally, but that's all I have.

I searched the forum but no results.

Two questions:

a) the tutorial refers to a 'manual', but I don't see any file that might be something I could print out. Any suggestion as to where to look?

:P in the second coding example in the tutorial (Notepad automation) it advises the reader to "use the Autoit Window Information Tool. Run the Information Tool from Start Menu \ AutoIt v3 \ AutoIt Window ". Because that 'path' doesn't match the path for installing AutoIt, the instruction is confusing. I can get to the Tool via Windows Explorer, or I can use this sequence: Start, Run, enter '"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Au3Info.exe", then Enter. Is the later what the author intended?

Thanks in advance. - MIke

From the Help - If this is what you are talking about - you are taking it to literal - look at the example for MsgBox() and you will see the parameters for the MsgBox

Now, let's look at the flag parameter for the MsgBox function again. From the manual page we can see various values listed which change the way MsgBox displays. The value of 0 simply shows a simple message box with an OK button. A value of 64 displays the message box with an information icon.

The second part - yes, and it should work - where is yours pointing to - just change it to the exe you found from above.


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."
