  2. Hi UPDATED Notes: =============================================================================== UPDATED: My main and second questions answered. Here the answers: To add/access WinMenuSelectItem you need to [Thanks to Fernando_Marinho]: Add AutoItX.Dotnet in Manage NuGet Packages Right Click in your Project -> Add -> Reference... -> COM ( Type Libraries )than, check the option AutoItX3 1.0 Type Library using AutoItX3Lib; AutoItX3 au3 = new AutoItX3(); au3.WinMenuSelectItem("", ...) My full source code in C# exists in 11 posts in below. How to access those overloaded methods in AutoitX3 that are not accessible via above method!? Or how to fix AutoitX3 DLL Registration need in target computers without Autoit pre-installed on them!? Please check my post at 14 posts below! =============================================================================== Original Post: I was writing a small app in Autoit to close µTorrent app. It was working. Then I try to import AutoItX into C#, but unfortunately this method WinMenuSelectItem Couldn't find by IntelliSense and If I typed completely it still give me this message: Please check the image. I Google it and I found this QA at stackoverflow: Autoit error within C# application I saw they use this line: au = new AutoItX3Lib.AutoItX3Class(); I figure it how to add 'AutoItX3Lib' to project (by adding 'AutoItX3.dll' to reference) but again! When I use this line: var au = new AutoItX3Class(); I got this error message: Interop type 'AutoItX3Class' cannot be embedded. Use the applicable interface instead.

  5. I recently tried to use ControlClick method to send a mouse click command to a button in a application, but I noticed that it is not working when I give first parameter as a window handle (HWND). But, when I give class name or window title, it works fine. I used AutoItX3 and VBScript. Following are the commands I tried in VBScript: Dim WINAPI: Set WINAPI = WScript.CreateObject("WinAPIWrapper.WINAPI") Dim AutoItX3: Set AutoItX3 = WScript.CreateObject("AutoItX3.Control") Dim WindowHandle: WindowHandle = WINAPI.WinAPI_FindWindow("my window title", "my window class") 'Window handle obtains fine by my wrapper function 'Above window handle is obtained as a hexadecimal string. (I.E. - 0x00000000) I tried it like: WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(WindowHandle, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(CLng("&h" + Replace(WindowHandle, "0x", "")), "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(000000, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(0x00000000, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK Only following commands work: WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick("[CLASS:my window class]", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // WORKS FINE WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick("My window title", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // WORKS FINE If any of your suggestions don't work, I will have to write a wrapper function myself to send mouse click commands. I chosen AutoIt V3 because it is good specially when comes to send keystrokes to applications. Please tell me why this won't work when I give window handle as first parameter. Thanks in advance.

  14. Good day!!! In the process of the script vbs I use as an information window function ToolTip, example: Set objAutoItTT = WScript.CreateObject("AutoItX3.Control") strTT = "Update Adress Book. " & VbLf & "#############################" & VbLf objAutoItTT.ToolTip strTT & "Preparation, checks." , 50, 50In the process of writing the script used AutoitX3.dll library version Everything worked great. After upgrading to version of the library, the script works, but the windows are not displayed tooltip. Help me please!!!

  16. Hi, im new to autoit and i have a little problem i have to do a app to start some web pages and some windows base programs oane of them is Skype, the problem is that Skype starts but only in system tray and i do not know how to appear on desktop the code i use is below: public static String jvmBitVersion(){ return System.getProperty("sun.arch.data.model"); } private void jButton4ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) { String jacobDllVersionToUse; if (jvmBitVersion().contains("32")){ jacobDllVersionToUse = "jacob-1.18-M2-x86.dll"; } else { jacobDllVersionToUse = "jacob-1.18-M2-x64.dll"; } File file = new File("lib", jacobDllVersionToUse); System.setProperty(LibraryLoader.JACOB_DLL_PATH, file.getAbsolutePath()); AutoItX x = new AutoItX(); x.run("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Skype\\Phone\\Skype.exe"); x.sleep(2000); x.winWaitActive("Skype"); x.winActivate("Skype"); }
  17. It seems the AutoIt community does not much venture into AutoItX and the real programmers do not need much to understand how to implement the DLLs -> is there some guidance with explanantions available? This part of the AutoIt site is definitely not getting as much traffic as the rest. Obviously a lot of assumed knowledge and skill applies... I have searched for AutoItX but can not find a single tutorial. There are examples - but what I would really like is a ZIPped project, that explains the C layout, and the link to the AutoIT DLLs. A bit more narrative than code so that I can also learn how... Is there maybe a static Wiki/FAQ on AutoItX that I have missed?
  18. AutoItx and Delphi

    Just wanted to share this for those of us that work with AutoItx3.dll with our Delphi apps. I hand coded the first header file from a C .h header file, but could only get about 60% of the routines to work (my fault, not autoit) I recently went back, and with many hours work and testing, finally came up with this. autoitx3.pas
  19. When I check the list of commands in the Powershell included with Windows 10, I found Assert-AU3IsAdmin, from the module AutoItX. Is anybody else getting this, or did Powershell include AutoItX as one of its modules automatically for everybody? Did you know about this, Jon? To reproduce, start PowerShell and enter "Help Admin". I got Assert-AU3IsAdmin which returns 1 if run as admin and 0 if not. The AU3 in the middle got my attention and I thought to check here. "Help AU3" gave me a huge list of entries. Any ideas?
  20. This is a quick start guide to using the AutoIt PowerShell Cmdlets. The best bits of AutoIt directly from PowerShell The files you need are as follows (get them from the zip file or the Program Files folder after installation): AutoItX.psd1AutoItX3.PowerShell.dllAutoItX3.Assembly.dllAutoItX3.dllAutoItX3_x64.dllTo use the Cmdlets open a PowerShell cmd prompt and enter: Import-Module .\AutoItX.psd1 Now you can get a list of available AutoIt Cmdlets by doing Get-Command *AU3*: PS> Get-Command *AU3* Name Category Module ---- -------- ------ Invoke-AU3MouseWheel Cmdlet AutoItX Move-AU3Mouse Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3MouseClickDrag Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3MouseCursor Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3MouseUp Cmdlet AutoItX Assert-AU3WinActive Cmdlet AutoItX Assert-AU3WinExists Cmdlet AutoItX Assert-AU3IsAdmin Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3Shutdown Cmdlet AutoItX Send-AU3ControlKey Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3MouseDown Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3MouseClick Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3ControlTreeView Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3ControlListView Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3ControlCommand Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3ControlClick Cmdlet AutoItX Move-AU3Control Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3ControlText Cmdlet AutoItX Show-AU3Control Cmdlet AutoItX Hide-AU3Control Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3ControlText Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3ControlFocus Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3ControlFocus Cmdlet AutoItX Disable-AU3Control Cmdlet AutoItX Enable-AU3Control Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3StatusbarText Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3RunAsWait Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3RunAs Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3RunWait Cmdlet AutoItX Invoke-AU3Run Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3Clip Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3Clip Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3WinTrans Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3WinTitle Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3WinState Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3WinOnTop Cmdlet AutoItX Move-AU3Win Cmdlet AutoItX Show-AU3WinMinimizeAllUndo Cmdlet AutoItX Show-AU3WinMinimizeAll Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinState Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinProcess Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinClassList Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinCaretPos Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinClientSize Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3ControlPos Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3ControlHandle Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3MousePos Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinPos Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinHandle Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3ErrorCode Cmdlet AutoItX Initialize-AU3 Cmdlet AutoItX Show-AU3WinActivate Cmdlet AutoItX Close-AU3Win Cmdlet AutoItX Wait-AU3WinClose Cmdlet AutoItX Wait-AU3WinNotActive Cmdlet AutoItX Set-AU3Option Cmdlet AutoItX Send-AU3Key Cmdlet AutoItX Wait-AU3Win Cmdlet AutoItX Wait-AU3WinActive Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinTitle Cmdlet AutoItX Get-AU3WinText Cmdlet AutoItX I’ll show how to use the Cmdlets using a simple example that will open notepad.exe and modify the edit window by setting the text and simulating some keystrokes. First create a blank PowerShell script called notepad_example.ps1 in the same folder as the AutoItX components above and open it for editing. Now we want to import the PowerShell module which is AutoItX.psd1. Enter the following in the script: Import-Module .\AutoItX.psd1 We want to run notepad.exe: Invoke-AU3Run -Program notepad.exe After notepad opens we want to wait for the notepad “Untitled -Notepad” window to appear. You might need to change the title for non-English versions of Windows: $notepadTitle = "Untitled - Notepad" Wait-AU3Win -Title $notepadTitle $winHandle = Get-AU3WinHandle -Title $notepadTitle Get-AU3WinHandle returns a native Win32 handle to the notepad window. We can use this handle in many other AutoIt functions and it uniquely identifies the window which is much more reliable than constantly using a windows title. If you have obtained a window handle using any other Win32 function you can use it with AutoIt. After obtaining the handle to the notepad window we want to ensure that the window is active and then get a handle to the Edit Control. Using the AU3Info.exe tool that comes with AutoIt we can find that the name of the edit control in notepad is Edit1. Show-AU3WinActivate -WinHandle $winHandle $controlHandle = Get-AU3ControlHandle -WinHandle $winhandle -Control "Edit1" Now that we have a handle to the edit control we can set text in two ways: Directly (Set-AU3Controltext) or with simulated keystrokes (Send-AU3ControlKey): Set-AU3ControlText -ControlHandle $controlHandle -NewText "Hello! This is being controlled by AutoIt and PowerShell!" -WinHandle $winHandle Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}simulate key strokes - line 1" -WinHandle $winHandleNow let’s see what the entire script looks like: # Import the AutoIt PowerShell module Import-Module .\AutoItX.psd1 # Run notepad.exe Invoke-AU3Run -Program notepad.exe # Wait for an untitled notepad window and get the handle $notepadTitle = "Untitled - Notepad" Wait-AU3Win -Title $notepadTitle $winHandle = Get-AU3WinHandle -Title $notepadTitle # Activate the window Show-AU3WinActivate -WinHandle $winHandle # Get the handle of the notepad text control for reliable operations $controlHandle = Get-AU3ControlHandle -WinHandle $winhandle -Control "Edit1" # Change the edit control Set-AU3ControlText -ControlHandle $controlHandle -NewText "Hello! This is being controlled by AutoIt and PowerShell!" -WinHandle $winHandle # Send some keystrokes to the edit control Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}simulate key strokes - line 1" -WinHandle $winHandle Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}simulate key strokes - line 2" -WinHandle $winHandle Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}{ENTER}" -WinHandle $winHandle This is how the notepad window should look if everything is working correctly:
