Error in Tutorial Script

4 posts in this topic

The AutoIT3 help file contains example scripts. One of them - "Simple Notepad Automation" - contains an error.

Run("notepad.exe")

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send("This is some text.")

WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")

WinWaitActive("Notepad", "&Save")<--------Wrong parameter

Send("!n")

WinClose doesn't activate Notepad's File menu. It displays a dialog box with three buttons: Yes, No, Cancel. WinWaitActive will wait forever to see a window titled Notepad with "&Save."

Looks like the Example was changed as used by Vista ... but the important thing is that it shows how things look and should be code based upon that ...

So don't think there is anything really wrong here when you read the whole page ....

If all other AutoIT3 users are on Vista then I should probably think about upgrading...

I think Vista users are a long way from being the majority. Personally I won't even write scripts for Vista support.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***
