Sending "'s

How do you make something like this:

Send("MsgBox(0, "Hi there", "What's up?")

I want it to type out the msgbox command... It errors our that "Hi quote... I tried \" like the Java escape sequence, but it doesn't work for AutoIt... How can I get this to work?

You need to add ") to the end of that code:

Send("MsgBox(0, "Hi there", "What's up?")")

Just did, same thing... the error is at the first "Hi there part... So the rest doesn't matter, although I see what you are saying, I actually forgot to put that in the original heh.

Send('MsgBox(0, "Hi there", "Whats up?")')

The ' in Whats up? throws it off.

Send('MsgBox(0, "Hi there", "What''s up?")')

Send("MsgBox(0, ""Hi there"", ""What's up?"")")

You could also use a variable to store the quote char or break up each string into a separate variable...

EDIT: Sorry for the trouble everyone, I figured it out... I acidentally made a typo while trying another method, and therefore it didn't work.

Send('MsgBox(0, "Hi there", "What's up?")')

This works. Sorry about confusion!

It works for me fine now with the "'" only the ' works.

Ok, well all I know is that what works is:

Send('MsgBox(0, "Hi there.", "Hi there")')

What larry posted wouldn't work because the ' in What's would close the "quotes".
