Help with first $var and inputBox

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is the first time I have used variables and requesting user input.

What I am wanting is to request a computer name and then be able to send the user input as text to a window. I have chosen notepad to start...

I get the input box, but how do I take the info entered and then send it to the notepad window as text...

Here is what I wrote...

$var1 = InputBox("Computer Name", "Computer Name:", "", "")


WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send $var1

(?????? This is the part I don't get....I tried to also use Send("$var") but obviously that just sends the text $var)

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
