looping???

5 posts in this topic

ok guys i am very VERY new to autoit3 (i am used to 2) but i was very fond of having the GoTo command for looping. can someone plz post a detailed way to loop a macro????

also, i need a script that will exit popups (i have a script that clicks on one place and ever so offten it goes to like intermission and it clicks on a add then it screws with the clicking on the website. is there any way i can make it so the window is always up and when it clicks on an add it exits out of it?

RTFM on While...Wend

the rest of these areas might help too.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Getting started with autoit and programing.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Download AutoIt v3 - Install the script engine, helpfile, window spy.

http://www.autoitscript.com/fileman/users/jdeb/scite4autoit3.exe - Installs the SciTE text editor with autoit customizations (props to Jdeb) and it's helpfile.

The autoit helpfile has quite a bit of information available to folks like us without much basic programing knowledge, I really suggest reading (I printed alot of it) the following sections:

  • Using AutoIt
  • Language Referance
  • Keyword Reference
  • Macro Reference
I'd then suggest perusing the Language referance section, based on your intended uses of autoit, perhaps highlighting the String Management section, as that's handy in just about any application.

Hope that helps give you a kickstart.

it depends what you are trying to get the new "goto" loop to do. if you mean re-run a macro forever,

While $done = 0

do stuff here

Wend

that'll run until $done is set to anything other than 0.

uhh.... exiting popups?? get firefox...

And to make it go forever (and a day):

To create an infinite loop, you can use a non-zero number as the expression.
