Can you combine the run command with a button

Recommended Posts


Just wondering if you can create the gui with a button then on push it will activate a program. Such as with the notepad example in the help file for autoit.

Though the notepad exampe is only a stand alone script.

Im just trying to work something out so as lets say if i create a gui and say i want to start a program that is say on my e partition. All i have to do is press the button

And wa-la the program starts.

I know the syntax for the stand alone command would be Run("E:\any-program.exe")

#include <guiconstants.au3>

GUICreate( "", 100, 100)

$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Press", 35,45)

    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    if $msg = $btn Then _runProg()
until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Func _runProg()
