MsgBox in AutoItX

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

Why there is not a MsgBox method in AutoItX. How can I send a message to the user and get a response from him. Thanks for any reply :whistle:

The answer to my best understanding is that nearly any lanugage you can use AutoItX in will have a MsgBox or Alert of its own. Therefore, it is considered redundant in most circumstances.


Who else would I be?

Hi "this-is-me",

Thanks for your reply.

You are right, but in some circunstances I think that redundancy can make things easier.

I suppose that it is the case I am dealing with.

I am using AutoIt with VBA-Excel.

So far, in order that the user can answer while he is seeing the other application, I have to activate Excel, hide Excel and show a InputBox.

I will try other approaches but with a MsgBox method in AutoIt I would have my problem solved.

Nevertheless, thanks again.

Most VB languages have a MsgBox function. Why doesn't VBA?
