Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

Hi, maybe we can learn something of it? The dataGrid should come with a BIG, FAT RED ALERT : "This is a very sophisticated piece of software and should be left alone, for a while, by all newcomers - for their own mental sanity!" Newcomers should not be pointed to developer previews or other not-yet...

Re: Very Hard to learn for beginner

Attached is a screenshot of a random chosen function from AUTOIT a basic scripting lang.

they have very detailed documentation without having to mess around on forums and online searches for how to use in real life .

very nicely laid out .
i see no reason why this great lang could not be as nice .
