Another Newb Question

3 posts in this topic

I was trying to make a quick launch icon thing without using the already theres ones (don't ask why :))

I can make it open the program, but then the scipt icon stays in the corner...

Is there away to open the program and close the scipt?

If there is an easy way in the help section thing, i don't know how to find stuff in it....

Yes... Right click your .au3 file and click "Compile Script" Then you will have a .exe file... Just put that on ur desktop, OR, drag it into All Programs -> Startup folder...

Not sure if I understand your question. you can drag a shortcut to launch autoit scripts, or compiled versions. When autoit launches a program, the iicon should disapear when the script is done:

run("notepad.exe")
tooltip("autoit icon should be gone in 3 seconds",0,0)
sleep(3000); 3 seconds

If you don't like the icon, you can choose one you like when you compile, or choose to hide it a half second after you run it as well.
