Getting user input for use in a script help.

Hey all,

If I can get mouse position with this,

SplashTextOn("setup", "Please Click on this thing to get it's location", 400, 100, -1, -1, 1, "Ariel", 15) 
While 1
Sleep ( 100 )
If _IsPressed("01") Then
$pos = MouseGetPos()
ExitLoop
EndIf
WEnd
SplashOff()
$incbitx = $pos[0]
$incbitly = $pos[1]
Sleep ( 1000 )

I did a search for keyboard monitoring and returning this info but could not find it.

I would like to do something similar to this but prompt the user to enter a number on the keyboard and capture that to variable. Is it possible to do such a thing?

InputBox()

Ok, thanks. Does this look correct for just returning numbers? I want to accept a numerical responce that could be single or double digits. The _IPressed wont work here.

SplashTextOn("more setup", "Please enter the number of times you want to perform this action", 400, 100, -1, -1, 1, "Ariel", 15) 
While 1
Sleep ( 100 )
$mycvar = InputBox( "Setup Continued", "Please enter that data" )
ExitLoop
Wend
SplashOff()

You might want to wrap the return value with Number() to be safe.

$mycvar = Number(InputBox( "Setup Continued", "Please enter that data" ))

I assume the InputBox waits for the return key to be pressed before continuing. Is this correct?

Yes

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]
