  1. I am trying to pass multi-file selections from Windows Explorer into the $CmdLine argument parameters array. For example, and these are not the literal program/project names, I can pass three full path file names via both Window's Run dialog and Terminal into the $CmdLine array, i.e, "c:\Dir\Program.exe" "D:\Test\file1.txt" "D:\Test\file2.txt" "D:\Test\file3.txt". When checked in the running program, $CmdLine index [1] has the correct value of 3, index [1] is correct with "D:\Test\file1.txt", index [2] with "D:\Test\file2.txt" and index [3] with "D:\Test\file3.txt". I get the same correct results in $CmdLine array when I start Program.exe with the same three file parameters using the Windows Terminal. Also, I have added a HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\command key to the Window's registry. The registry entry is with a "C:\Program.exe" "%1" "$2" "%3" string value to allow for renaming file(s) from Windows Explorer via the right-click menu. With just one parameter placeholder, "%1" in the string value, a selected file will appear in $CmdLine. $CmdLine[0] is 1 and $Cmdline[1] contains the selected full path file name. Unfortunately, when I change the registry string value to include two more passing arguments, "%2" "%3", $CmdLine[0] =3 (as it should since three file path names are passed to Program.exe), $CmdLine[1] contains "D:\Test\file1.txt", but $CmdLine[2] and [3] are just empty strings. It appears to me that Windows is not passing the second and third ("%2" and "%3") selected file's to Autoit, but just the first parameter "%1". Is there some way that I can select more than one file in Window's Explorer and pass the full file paths into the $CmdLine array? I know that AutoIt has the _WinAPI_GetOpenFileName function, but I would like to select files directly from Windows Explorer to bring into $CmdLine. File Renaming Application Reg Key.reg
  2. Hi Problem is this myscript -p <zumerkelen> -x something else myscript is my AutoIt compiled CUI. -p <> is first param - fails, see below -x [text] second param, works. When I run this with the param enclosed in <> I get the response The syntax of the command is incorrect. Experimentation indicates that the <> tags are the problem. _ArrayDisplay($CmdLine, "1 Array") MsgBox(16, "1 Raw", $CmdLineRaw) The problem is with the reading of the command line. It fails BEFORE it gets into the variables... I am not dealing with AutoIt, or even my own command line, this is legacy software. It seems that AutoIt "interprets" the <> before loading the command line... I need to be able to read that as text without it being interpreted. The only part I can control is my script, the myscript, which I can change at will. The standard command line functions appear all to interpret params on read. I want those params read raw. If I could just get that as a string it would be fine. Where to look? Skysnake
  3. Hello all! I'm trying to make a little script that sends a message over TCP. An example payload would be: MY_PAYLOAD#<ATTRS><ATTR><NAME>MAILSERVER</NAME><OPERATION>set_value(ServiceStatus)</OPERATION><VALUE><![CDATA["Not Running"]]></VALUE><TIMESTAMP>1349297031</TIMESTAMP></ATTR></ATTRS>Note how the payload contains special characters, and how the CDATA contains a SPACE (i.e. "Not Running") My compiled AU3 script expects exactly two command line arguments: 1) destination server/port expressed as 2) the payload I want to send to my server application (which may have multiple ATTRs, this example only has one ATTR) MyApp.exe "MY_PAYLOAD#<ATTRS><ATTR><NAME>MAILSERVER</NAME><OPERATION>set_value(ServiceStatus)</OPERATION><VALUE><![CDATA["Not Running"]]></VALUE><TIMESTAMP>1349297031</TIMESTAMP></ATTR></ATTRS>" My problems (plural) are with parsing of the second argument: 1) If I don't wrap second argument in double-quotes, then Windows bails out before even launching EXE with "< was unexpected at this time" 2) If I DO wrap second argument in double-quotes, then two problems can arise when my EXE parses the arguments: aa) The double-quotes are stripped from the CDATA value. ["Running"] is stored in the array as [Running] bb) If CDATA value DOES have a space, such as ["Not Running"], then I get an extra unwanted $CmdLine[3] because the SPACE between Not and Running is treated as a separator. My second argument is thus split into two separate arguments, [2] and [3] instead of being treated as one arg stored in [2] cc) Additionally, my script exits because it has an "IF $CmdLine[0] <>2 THEN Exit (1)" to validate the command line args. I've tried launching the EXE with the second argument wrapped and escaped in a multitude of ways. Double double-quotes, triple double-quotes, single-quotes on the outside with double-quotes inside (i.e. '"ETC"'), starting the second arg with a caret (i.e. ^"ETC") and one of three things happens: 1) "< was unexpected at this time" 2) my CDATA value is stripped of its double-quotes 3) my payload argument gets split at the space in the CDATA value and the script bails out due to the unexpected 3rd argument. Any ideas? How can I preserve the second argument literally, including all special characters, quotes and spaces? I tried adding some string manipulation code to grab the 2nd argument from $CmdLineRaw and it works (preserves the "Not Running" with quotes), but my number of arguments is still 3 instead of 2 if there is a space in the CDATA value. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hello, I am trying to understand the $CmdLine array. My goal is to run scriptA.exe have it create a variable $varA and then run scriptB.exe and have scriptB.exe output $varA to a Msgbox. It isn't working though, so I am not getting how this works. This is what I am trying: ScriptA - $varA = 'Test' Run('d:\(x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe "D:\AutoIT Script\CMDLINE\scriptB.au3"') ScriptB - If $CmdLine[0] = 0 Then MsgBox(64, "Result", "No variable was found.") Else MsgBox(64, "Variable", $CmdLine[1] & $varA) EndIf If someone can help me understand why this isn't working, I'd appreciate it.
