TOOL TIP feature not working

Recommended Posts

hotelnorbit

Just loaded AUTOIT and cannot get the TOOLTIP feature to work.

I tried the example for my first script:

MsgBox (0, "My First Script", "Hello World")

I did not get any tooltip box to pop up.

I tried many ways and need help.

Thanks so kindly.

David

MsgBox() opens a message box... not a tooltip. ToolTip() will show you a tooltip. Does this work for you?

ToolTip("Hello World!!!")
Sleep(3000)

No ... When I type the M key a tool tip box should pop up that lets me select all the M commands ... this does not happen.

Also when I type (MsgBox) A tooltip feature should show me all the command paramaters.

Thanks for trying to help me.

Thanks for trying to help me.

In addition ... When I type the F5 key my code does not execute. I'm not sure if I have all the executables for auto-it installed properly.

What version of SciTE do you have? I recommend SciTE4AutoIt3, which is downloadable from the homepage.

Version 1.74 ... That must be the problem.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Looks like 1.74 is the most recent one.

Just checking but have you saved your script with a .AU3 extention? Until you've done this the special AutoIt tools in Scite will not work.

It does save as .AU3 extension.

I'm trying to re-install the software. I've got no idea why it doesn't work.

YAY!!!! :D

It works now.

I did not have administrator privileges. Our IT group gave me admin rights for AUTOIT and then it worked.

Thanks for all of your attempts to help.

David.
