MF/AF during Video Recording with Powershot A2300?

As a birthday present a couple of days ago, I bought a Canon Powershot A2300 HD (I was originally going to go for an A4000 IS but the store was out of stock so I settled on an A2300 instead) , and the other day (I'm new to this so apologies for my lack of knowledge) I installed CHDK successfully onto my A2300 (1.00F, by the way), and I love the new features added, but one question I would like to know is, is there a feature that will enable Auto Focusing or Manual Focusing with this model? I've seen scripts to enable it but they were designed for other cameras and I don't know a working one for the A2300. Auto Focusing would be preferred but I wouldn't mind a Manual Focus aswell.

Thanks for the help.

According to the platform_camera.h file for you camera,  manual focus via the zoom lever is enabled for regular pictures.   There are only a few cameras that will do that for video modes though and the A2300 is not on the list.  Sorry.
