Koda For Dummies:

  • Open SciTe
  • Goto Tools
  • Run Koda
  • Create Your GUI
  • Goto Tools --> Generate and Click Ok
The End of Koda for Dummies :shocked:

You're best bet would probably be to ask a more specific question here, and people would be happy to assist you :shocked: Edited by Paulie

After I whined about needing GUI examples I pulled my head back out where the sun shines and found some examples that the installation process provided.

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\GUI

Also, as a friend just pointed out to me: Go to your local copy of AutoIt Help (should be a yellow ? icon that the install created), Contents tab, scroll down to GUI Reference. Also under Function Reference, GUI Reference.

Be patient, I find more stuff every day, especially with a little help from the forum.

Koda is your GUI friend, trust me!

Koda is at location: "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\Koda\fd.exe"

As bert said you can run it from Scite: menu Tools/Koda

You can find it also on this forum:
