Re: RUN command with a variable that contains a working directory does not work

Thank you, jeeswg...much appreciated! Works a charm! I thought that it would simply send the full string to the Run command, and with the embedded comma would work fine...like two params. But, obviously, I was mistaken. Thanks for the quick, excellent response! Regards, Joe

IniRead not returning ERROR when Section not found on a non-Key call

I don't know if this is a bug or feature, but decided to post it here first to get some feedback from the experts before posting it in the Bug Reports forum. The IniRead doc says that ERROR (or user-specified value) will be stored in OutputVar if the requested key is not found. That works fine on a ...

I'm working on a program that I want to be as good as possible for visually-impaired users. The program has several GUIs in it with buttons, all created via the AHK Gui,Add,Button statement.
