Is it possible?

Did you find any documentation on how to?

What did your search tell you? http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...highlite=%2BDLL


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Guess you didn't read the topics of the search I did for you. You can't make a DLL in AutoIt.

Could you run this by me again but this time slowly?

What is this desire of people wanting to create a DLL?

Use #Include to reuse code if that is what you are looking for.

Sorry, i meant, instead of re-compiling the code, and adding it to my projects and stuf, because of VB not being a scripting language, i want to use the DLL's to add autoitscripting ability to my VB code. Regardless, I still want to know how to make a DLL in autoIt

Have you looked at the ActiveX dll in your AutoIt directory? That's as close as you are going to get to being able to use AutoIt functions in another language through a DLL. Anything else you would have to compile to an executable and use command line parameters as dll function parameters.

Regardless, I still want to know how to make a DLL in autoIt

thanx. Can you give me an example of how to call an autoit function from the DLL? I'm new to VB also, and This will b my first time using DLLs.

E.G.: how do i get the window title of the active window using a AutoIt3X.dll call?

Read the autoit3x dll help file? Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoItX\AutoItX.chm

I want to, instead of adding extra files to my (other language) projects, write a script and then just embed the functions I write into my (other language) code. Makes things easier for me. Is this possible?

No.

I can't figure out where people keep getting the idea that they can write dlls in AutoIt.

IS there a way to get that accomplished in another way?

You have to translate the AutoIt code to the other languages.
