Hence more and more users including me need to look at automating Webbrowsers using WebDriver. That's why I have started to create a tutorial in the wiki. It should describe all necessary steps from intallation to usage.

I'm still collecting ideas for the tutorial - that's where you come into play. What do you expect to see in such a tutorial?

Which browsers should be covered Firefox, Chrome and Edge are settled? Any questions for the FAQ? Which high level coding examples do you expect like "How to attach to a running browser instance" FAQ: "How to attach to a running browser instance".

I wanted to share all my knowledge on arrays!

Hope may enjoy the article , Lets start! Declaring arrays! Just like declaring an empty array! Best practice of using "Enum" You might be wondering what they might be Looping through an Array Looping through an array is very easy! There are 2 ways to loop an array in AutoIt! Simple Way: ; This is a very basic way to loop through an array ; In this way we use a For Next Loop! Advanced Way: ; This is an advanced way to loop through an array ; In this way we use a For For some reason, many people use the advance way more than the simple way.

For more examples of loops see this post by FrancescoDiMuro! I will explain it in a very simple way for ya, so stop straining you brain now! This way will work for any array regardless of its dimensions Ok, Lets start Its super easy!

Don't be shy! What are Arrays? An Array is an datatype of an variable AutoIt has many datatypes of variables like "strings", "integers" etc. Array is one of them. An Array can store information in a orderly manner. An Array consist of elements, each element can be considered as a variable and yes, each element has its own datatype!

I get an error while declaring an Array!? How can I calculate the no. The UBound function is your answer, Its what exactly does! If you have an multi-dimensional Array you can calculate the total no.

Why is my For Next loop throwing an error while processing an Array? UBound returns the no. That's right, you need to remove 1 from the total no. Can an Array contain an Array? How do I access an Array within an Array? It is possible that an Array can contain another Array! They are required or you would get an syntax error!

More FAQs coming soon! When I click 'open this script' in AutoIt Help the example isn't opening. I tried this FixHelpFileExamples. But 'open this script' not working. What I wonder if my mouse is over 'Copy to clipboard' my cursor is changing to a hand, showing there is a link.

If I do the same over 'Open this Script' then mouse is showing the hand for very short time and then getting back to show the arrow. So if I move slowly the cursor over this link it's 'blinking' hand and arrow. What could this be? Regards, Conrad.
