  1. AutoIt3 Lua Wrapper This is an AutoIt3 wrapper for the Lua scripting language. Consider it beta software, but since I will be using it in commercial product, expect it to evolve. It has been developped with Lua 5.3.5. Updates will come for new Lua version. Everything works just fine, except one (big) limitation: Anything that throws a Lua error (using C setjmp/longjmp functionality) will crash your AutoIt program. That means that it is impossible to use throw errors from an AutoIt function called by Lua (luaL_check*, lua_error...). It is hosted in Github: https://github.com/matwachich/au3lua Simple example #include <lua.au3> #include <lua_dlls.au3> ; Initialize library _lua_Startup(_lua_ExtractDll()) OnAutoItExitRegister(_lua_Shutdown) ; create new execution state $pState = _luaL_newState() _luaopen_base($pState) ; needed for the lua's print function $iRet = _luaL_doString($pState, 'print("Hello, world!")') If $iRet <> $LUA_OK Then ; read the error description on top of the stack ConsoleWrite("!> Error: " & _lua_toString($pState, -1) & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ; close the state to free memory (you MUST call this function, this is not AutoIt's automatic memory management, it's a C library) _lua_close($pState)
  2. Hello, I've read a article about lua functions here: https://debian-administration.org/article/264/Embedding_a_scripting_language_inside_your_C/C_code There are two ways of include lua scripts to your AutoIt code. 1. Run lua functions by Autoit. 2. Register Autoit function and run as lua. It's even possible to apply second way to AutoIt? As we can see on example there a few functions to make it possible. It's a lua file save as average.lua avg, sum = average(10, 20, 30, 40, 50) print("The average is ", avg) print("The sum is ", sum) This is a C functions to run lua. Can be convert to AutoIt ofc. There is a problem with func lua_register(L, "average", average) this function is not even detected in Lua51.dll We can use lua_pushcclosure instead. #include <stdio.h> #include "lua.h" #include "lualib.h" #include "lauxlib.h" /* the Lua interpreter */ lua_State* L; /* The function we'll call from the lua script */ static int average(lua_State *L) { /* get number of arguments */ int n = lua_gettop(L); double sum = 0; int i; /* loop through each argument */ for (i = 1; i <= n; i++) { if (!lua_isnumber(L, i)) { lua_pushstring(L, "Incorrect argument to 'average'"); lua_error(L); } /* total the arguments */ sum += lua_tonumber(L, i); } /* push the average */ lua_pushnumber(L, sum / n); /* push the sum */ lua_pushnumber(L, sum); /* return the number of results */ return 2; } int main ( int argc, char *argv[] ) { /* initialize Lua */ L = lua_open(); /* load Lua base libraries */ lua_baselibopen(L); /* register our function */ lua_register(L, "average", average); /* run the script */ lua_dofile(L, "average.lua"); /* cleanup Lua */ lua_close(L); return 0; }
  3. This lua script gives you the ability, to search for selected text or word from cursor in an search engine or on an search site of your choice.You can select the engine/site from a list, that you have defined in your user properties. To get the right call for your search engine, open the engine and search for one word. You need the url without the searched word. Write to your properties an display name for this engine and, separated by a comma, the url. See my example in the script header. For the list with search sites, you need display name and site address (without http://). It will searched for the full selected text or, if none selection exists, for the word touched by the cursor. You can allow in the properties, that also will recognized words with dots (like objVar.Property). The script uses the shell.dll. But if you don't have installed it, the browser will opened with an command line call. Thats why the command window will pop up for a short moment. You'll find details for installation and key bindings inside the script. Look for free command numbers in SciTE. By default installation, the numbers must be greater than 35 (max. 49). -- TIME_STAMP 2018-09-02 09:22:03 --[[ This script publicates two functions - InetSearch.Engine() You can search for the selected/touched text in SciTE and can select a search engine of your choice. - InetSearch.Site() You can search for the selected/touched text in SciTE with a defined search engine and can select a search site of your choice. Copy this script in your Lua scripts folder. Load this file in the Lua startup: dofile("Full\\Path\\InetSearch.lua") Add in "SciTEUser.properties" the following properties with search engines and search sites of your choice: #~ Inet Search Settings #~ List of engines. "display-name,search-url" (if not set: google.com will used) #~ If only one entry exists, the selection box will not shown.

  4. When ever you hover your mouse over a native function, user defined function, or an AutoItObject method then you will see the calltip for that function. Click "Like This" if you found this useful! To use this just place the following lua file in the "...AutoIt3SciTELUA" directory. MouseHoverCalltips.zip downloads:216 After you have done that then open SciTE and click 'Options' --> 'Open Lua Startup Script' and paste this line after the other lines (may require administrative rights): LoadLuaFile("MouseHoverCallTips.lua") Updates and changes:
  5. I looked at ScriptControl. I wonder if using this, can I do IPC solution in AutoIt. I also wonder whether some extent, ScirptControl can be compared to the use of LUA. Below is what I have read so far. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365574(v=vs.85).aspx http://support.microsoft.com/kb/184739/EN-US http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa227413(v=vs.60).aspx http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=1949 '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> btw. Please, share with other interesting links that according to you is worth reading on the subject (links not directly related to the AutoIt).
  6. I looked at the description of AutoItTools:ExportLibrary() and added it to my Tools menu, but I can't seem to make it work. Perhaps the format of my UDF headers is wrong. Can anyone give a short sample that shows the format required? I currently get the following lines (I added the region): #Region Members Exported #cs Exported Functions #ce Exported Functions #endregion Thanks, Frank
  7. With reference to I found an intresting SciTE console example https://code.google.com/p/scite-for-lua/ '> Does SciTE using ConsoleWrite is possible to display the message in the console with backlight as it is shown in the example. If it is not currently possible, and taking into account that it was hard to develop a beta version of AutoIT is it possible to add such functionality?
  8. I need to elevate certain applications, when launched, to run with an elevated (administrator level) security token. The token swap can happen on the fly or as an application wrapper. I have looked at several applications and find them ok, one even stands out above the rest, however my company is in extreme cost savings and are unable/unwilling to spend the money. I have seen Functions such as _Security__CreateProcessWithToken and _Security__AdjustTokenPrivileges, but I am still relatively new to AutoIT and am not sure how to utilize some of the advanced features. I appreciate any help. Thanks, Joshua Barnette
