Lmao this is wayyyy out of my league now, I have a question for you guys though,
How long did it take you to be able to actually write code without having to reasearch, because
I have read the tourorial soooo many times but I still can't really get my head around most of it.

I can do simple crap like simplistic GUI's and clicking scripts but even then, I mostly had to look up or ask for help. Did you guys have the same issues with figuring out what goes where what do I put where and what does it do

be curious don't learn what you not needed for
but be at least curious to extend your knowledge because what for now doesn't seem useful
or relevant could be in the future according to your aim usefull, relevant and even participate in the definiton of the limits of this goals because more u know about ahk more possibilities you have... but possibility appears only if you begin doing some projects :
ahk does have possibility only enlightened by some project which encounter problem, where appear suddenly questions at which ahk may have a answer
If you have no questions ahk has no answer

so you be off to a good start... (and that's all to your credit since it's easiest responde when you know than ask when you don't ;))

in other words the mighty coder here like 4GForce, Bruttosozialprodukkt... and off course Lexikos are person who was and continue asking themeselves many questions, using ahk has central reference, reservoir in order to jump over barriers
the better in ahk should have a forum like this one in their own head: 1000 questions and answers by seconds!

Geez, ty, I'll try not to let that get to my head.
I don't know who Brutto is, but it must almost feel like an insult for Lexikos to be put in the same basket as me. He's way better than I am.

Very good advice !

Long story short, I was doing basic, pascal and cobol like 30 something years ago.
Studied in computer science then and I went back to school like 10 years ago to update myself. ( been thru at least a dozen of coding languages since )
Learning specific language command is one thing ... but from seeing some of your post, you just need some better general coding knowledge.
I still research the docs all the time, but maybe I know what I'm looking for :?:

On a side note:
Code flow and code structure seems to be the most common flaw of anyone posting for help on this forum. (most post are not even AHK specifics)
Here are some of the keywords you could start with to learn more ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control_flow
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statement ... er_science)
