Newbie programmer here! =)

Recommended Posts


Hi there! I've just been start to learn how to make own programs and a friend of mine was say that AutoIT is one of the program that is easy and can be usefull too :)

I've also started by downloading AutoIT version 3.0 from this site and installed it.

And a help file with tutorials and codes popup :)

I've read through the tutorials, understand and finnished! (expect the last tutorial ^_^ )

Now i'm wondering, what is the basics?

And any idéas about what i'm going to learn me next?

I'm a noob too. My advice would be (not in any particular order):

Follow the tutorials in the help file.

Read through the documentation and play with AutoIt.

Play with the many examples in the AutoIt installation folder.

Download the excellent tutorial here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...rning+to+script

Decide on a simple project and plan it out, think about what you want to do and then experiment.

Ask noob questions here, just like I do :)

Good luck!

Ok, already done those tutorials, so now i go read about the other controls and functions etc :)

My first suggestion is to learn to search.



Thanks! ^_^

Any recommended link to a guide/tutorial that can learn me search then?

Maybee you should have help me with a link like this:



Well, i know that to learn i need to search and so on, i've heard it alot on forums when peoples is asking for stuffs.

But i mean, then if all answear was "search" then this forum would be useless?


If someone have any recommanded tutorials (i prefer video or sound) would be great :bike:

(i learn me good by just listening :) , Anyway in school :lmao: )

There are good tutorials here and here.

You have the right idea - learn about the language before getting too ambitious. So many of the posts here could be answered by a good read of the Help file.

If you make an effort to produce some code yourself, you will find that the forum members are very helpful. Just do not expect them to do all the work for you!


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area
