help I'm a n00b

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new to autoIt...I've played around in it...and I've done a few scripts...but mostly script edits.

Now I have to start from scratch and I don't really know what to do. I would like some tutorials but here's basically what I want it to do.

1. Load a few lists up into some arrays...

they would be for cut+pasting into different fields

a[] b[] c[] d[] e[] f[] g[]

2.Run a seach and sort from an .xls file and load those into another array


3. a)Open up the gui that will have command buttons

| 1 | | 2 | | 3 | | 4 | | 5 |

These will paste the current name from the current list into a field with differing prefixes depending on which button is pressed

:whistle: | 2 | will open up a submenu identical to the first doing the same thing with even more prefixes but under the |2| category

These are a few things that I'm trying to do...any tutorials or advice you could give would be most helpful

erm.. im probably going to be the only one to post.. so read the following tutorial carefully:

open the help file (default install directory is: c:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm )

Flip to the "contents" tab

open the "AutoIT" branch

then the "tutorials" branch

start reading.. and doing the tutorials

Once done with those, goto the "GUI Reference"

and read the GUI Concepts page, it will take you through creation of a GUI

This may seem harsh, but keep in mind, the GUI reference section is actually what will get you started on the GUI

you will also want:


and perhaps the Excel UDFs (search the forum for these)
