8 posts in this topic

I've noticed, there are ALOT of beginner guides around, that's very nice, but i've

also noticed or i've seen that there are NO guides for people who know the

basics, i know the simple basics but want to get further into this, so where do i start?

Define "simple basics" and define "get further into"....

Simple basics = Making a very simple program, using sleep, mouselcicks, run.

Get further into = learn mroe, get some harder coding

Zompy,

If you have completed the tutorials here and here then I do not believe there is much else published.

But I suggest you do what I, and I am sure many others, have done - take any of the scripts from one of the more experienced forum members and try and work out what they have done and, more importantly, why. Decide on a project that will stretch your coding ability - if you do not have any ideas, why are you coding in AutoIt in the first place? :-) Just browse the forums and inspiration will hit you. Try to see if you can code something which will answer the questions posed by others - without looking at the posted answers first of course!

There is no easy route to mastering anything in this world - if all it took was a more advanced tutorial, we would all have Nobel prizes. The solution is practice, practice, practice...............

ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used

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
