Ok, well, I just started using autoit and I began writting small scripts to help me learn a little more about the language. Unfortunately, one of my scripts has a problem. Here is part of the script:

While 1

Send("{SPACE down}")
Send("{RIGHT down}") 

sleep(x)

Send("{SPACE up}")
Send("{RIGHT up}")

Send("{SPACE down}")
Send("{LEFT down}")

sleep(x)

Send("{SPACE up}")
Send("{LEFT up}")

Wend

The x values in this script seem to be irrelevant as i tried changing their value to anything from 0 to 1000000 and the pause seems to be the same whatever their value is. Any help?

EDIT: The x values are not in quotes...

EDIT2: my sleep values are not intergers.... they are just numbers (ie. 2000)

and whatever i substitute into x the pause remains the same I even tried using Sleep(0) and it pauses just as long as Sleep (1000000) does.

"x" is a literal/string which is the same as 0..

Try Sleep($x)

I don't know what you are trying to do, but I have created an example for you to observe and play with. It uses both a fixed sleep time (in the script this is 5 seconds) and a variable sleep time that uses a variable. You can change the variable sleep time that will affect how quickly the window is displayed and erased.

I created this to help you see how to use Sleep() with a number, and Sleep() with a variable.

Here is the code:

SplashTextOn("Sleep example", "Sleep example AutoIt Program" & @LF &_
  "This window will stay open for 5 seconds")
Sleep(5000);5 seconds * 1000 milliseconds in 1 second
SplashOff()

HotKeySet("!q", "quit")
MsgBox(0, "What to do", "Please read this. A splash text window will now "&_
  "flash and dissepear on a timed basis."&@LF&"You can control the speed of "&_
  "this with your keyboad.  To make the delay longer, press alt+s"&@LF&"To "&_
  "make the delay shorter, press alt+f"&@LF&"To Exit the script, press alt+q"&_
  @LF&"All speed changes are in incriments of half a second. You cannot go "&_
  "shorter than half a second, or longer than 10 seconds")

HotKeySet("!s", "slower")
HotKeySet("!f", "faster")

Global $time = 1000
While 1
  SplashTextOn("Sleep Window", "Current delay time is: " & $time)
  Sleep($time)
  SplashOff()
  Sleep($time)
WEnd

Func quit()
  Exit
EndFunc

Func slower()
  If $time < 10000 Then $time = $time + 500
EndFunc

Func faster()
  If $time > 500 Then $time = $time - 500
EndFunc

I had a brief look at your first line of code and I would suggest you declare and initialize a variable that you can use with while, say:

While $var=1

blabla

Wend

Note that this iteration requires your variable $var to reach a non 1 value, otherwise it will keep looping forever. I often use the HotKeySet to build a function that allows me to interrupt the sript execution with a single key stroke if something goes wrong. Most my scripts include

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminator")

code.......

Func Terminator()

Exit 0

EndFunc

I must also agree that you are using the letter x, rather than the variable $x.

hope this helps
