NOOB QUESTION [GOTO, LABELS/TAGS]

5 posts in this topic

Yeah i was wondering if Autoit has the ability to move back and fourth with tags. Like i programmed with TI-83/84 and they got those commands where i can just go a different label when a certain command wasn't executed. I really need it becuz i do a lotta loops in the macro that i'm making so yeah. The Do, While, Repeat, and all that doesn't really hlep becuz i'm not doing an expression of anytime, i actually have a huge set of commands so i figure putting them down in boxes is a lotta easier to deal with.

So yeah, anyone know? THanks ^__^

Hi 7121,

1st Welcome to the AutoIt Forums! :idiot:

Some of the following tips may not apply to you, but it may make your life a bit easier here on the forum in the future.

CODE
  • Did you know that we have an awesome search feature?

    You can find many answers to your current questions, just by typing in the right search patterns.

  • A suggestion is to use the Advanced Search mode:

  • Type your specific search term in quotes.
  • Click the forum you want to search in (the one most likely to have your information would generally be the Example Script forum and or the General Help and Support Forum).
  • Click on "Search titles only" radio button.
  • Click perform search.
The above will help you narrow down your searches and prevent you from unneccesarily posting a new thread.

[*]Also, you should try to read the Sticky posts that are at the top of each of the AutoIt Forums you enter such as:

[*]Keep in mind, the help file will be your best friend, however you may find some of the tutorials written by some of our elite forum members helpful.

[*]Forum Etiquette:

  • Making a new thread:

    • Use the Search feature first to see if your question has already been answered.
    • Look in the help file as well before even thinking of posting (When what you want could be obtained by simply reading the help file, you don't generally get a good response from your AutoIt community).
    • Titles are very important here. 1 word titles or titles like "help me", "write something for me", "I'm a noob" etc... aren't tolerated.
    • Make sure you are posting in the correct forum:

      • General Help and Support:

        • This forum is for AutoIt related support questions only. If you have a question related to another language, or nothing at all to do with AutoIt then you need to post in the chat forum, or in that languages perspective forum.
      • Example Script:

        • This forum is for AutoIt scripts/executables only.
        • Source code is preferred but not necessary, you do have the right to just post the binary of your project if you wish.
        • Please don't post questions in this forum unless it's directly related to a thread already existing.
    • Use common sense when creating a new thread.

      Ask yourself if the title is descriptive enough to even interest someone (preferably those that know what they are talking about) to even look at your thread, let alone reply in it.

    • Think about how it would show in the search feature if someone were to look for something just like you are looking for (think of the keywords you used yourself and obviously didn't find anything (because we know you used the search feature :) ) and use those types of keywords in your title as well).
  • Thread content:

    • Be descriptive with your query. (Make sure we actually know what you want to do).
    • Show you've made an effort in coding what you want (provide the reproducer code (generally no more than 50 lines as people lose interest in debugging someones script for free)).
    • Don't talk in ebonics. A lot of the forum members are adults, and a lot of them know how to help you, but talk like a child, you'll be treated as such.
    • Don't ask for help making keyloggers, spam (even if it's to do as a prank), or anything that can be thought of as malicious. You'll more than likely have the thread locked by a moderator, and take a bashing from your fellow AutoIt community.
    • When posting code, use code boxes. This can be accomplished by using [code ]<content here>[/code ] (No spaces between the brackets []).

      Using code boxes will keep the indentation and make it easier to read for others to help you.

  • Bumping your threads:

    • Use common courtesy here.

      Keep in mind every time you bump your thread to the top of the forum, you knock the other threads down a notch.

      Everyone posting for help has just as much right for their threads to get read as you do.

      Because of that, do not bump your post more than once in a 24 hour period.

      A Bump is simply posting in your thread with nothing that pertains to your query with the sole purpose of moving it up.

      Deleting previous bumps, and posting new ones is not tolerated, and the moderators can find those deletions, so do yourself a favor and don't cross that line >_< .

  • Rude or obnoxious content:

    This falls pretty much under the common sense thing. If you use it (common sense) before posting, you won't have issues.

    • Don't use foul language, remember, a lot of the community is at work when they read these threads.
    • Don't provoke or instigate an argument with someone.
  • Double Posting:

    • It's understood that sometimes there's a lag in the system, and sometimes people don't see their post go up right aways so they post again.

      If this happens to you, simply notify a moderator with the report feature in the post, and politely ask them to delete it.

    • If you're just creating another topic because your original topic is not being answered the way you want or at all, this is not tolerated. You could lose your posting privileges all together over it.
  • Non-English languages

    • If English is not your primary language, please make an attempt to interpret (yourself or online) and post that interpretation.

      We have wonderful users from around the world, so after you've done your post in English, back it up with your question also in your native tongue (You may find your answer much quicker using both).

That's it for now, I hope you have a wonderful learning experience, and hope to see you contribute to the community as your knowledge grows.

You will want to learn to use function instead of GOTO... if you post some code, I, or somebody else here can help show you how it could be made into a function...

If you read the help/FAQ/or one of the hundreds of posts on this topic throughout the forum, you would see that GOTO IS EVIL.

I also did a lot of scripting on the TI-83p back in the day... it was a lot of fun, but you should really learn to use functions, and if you wish to continue writing apps on the TI, you should switch to asm (The TI programming forum has a lot of info on this).

okay well let's say i do this. Basically i'm making a script to download movies for me from a certain website. The thing is, there are numbers of links and each link has to be clicked. Once the link is clicked, a download prompt is requested with the URL inside. Of course in order two prevent the same links from ever downloading, i put in a safe check where i get the script to check if the same URL was pasted. Which i probably need help on also =/.

Now here's the problem, after doing, i want it to repeat. So basically, it goes back into the browers, adds the next following numbers into the coordinates and clicks on the link below or next to it. So basically it keep doing this until the following URL is the same within the URL box for the browser.

So thus, how do i make it so it jump back from teh to a certain place and redo the whole sequence again?

As the previous posters explained, you'll be switching from GOTO syntax into actual FUNCTION usage.

For example, you have a site you wish to manipulate that has tons of links on it. You can use the _IE* functions to put all of those links into an array, and from there, call another function, let's say it's named 'GRAB()' to grab what you need from those links.

func Grab($link = "")
;---- blah blah blah, do what you want here
end Func

Would be an example of creating a function w/ a variable you can pass too it with a simple code:

Grab($link)

Look in the help file for how to create functions, etc. The main benefit to AutoIT vs command line scripts, etc, would be that you have functions you can create and modify, and use over and over again. Check the help file for For/Next loops, and While/Wend loops and If/Then loops so that you can do your checks.

But, you have to do some of the work too, look at the help file, try and build your script the way you want, and if you get stuck, post your example here so we can modify/help you further.
