Recommended Posts

Hey.

I am new to this. I am trying and trying to finde out how this program works. But i am stuck in this simple thing. I cant get my script to type any thing when i run one:/

Every things works the msgbox appear and notepad opens but then nothing happens it wont wirte hello world. Hope that somebody can answer my noobish question:)

Here is the script that i cant get to work:

$answer = MsgBox(4, "This script will run Notepad type in some text and then quit.  Run?")

If $answer = 7 Then
    MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "OK.  Bye!")
    Exit
EndIf

Run("notepad.exe")

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send("Hello world")

You forgot the title on MsgBox:

$answer = MsgBox(4, "Script", "This script will run Notepad type in some text and then quit.  Run?")

If $answer = 7 Then
    MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "OK.  Bye!")
    Exit
EndIf

Run("notepad.exe")

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send("Hello world")

My guess is that your running this on a non-english version of windows, if so, change "Untitled - Notepad" to whatever your language translation is :D

Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!
