tremolux66 posted a topic in AutoIt Technical DiscussionIs there a way to have Aut2Exe write its error messages to the console (stdout/stderr) instead of popping up a message window? We build our project software using Bash scripts that compile AutoIt scripts, compile C programs, install data files, etc. If Aut2Exe encounters an error when compiling an AutoIt script it pops-up a message window, which is problematic when running from a Bash script. It's worse when part or all of the build is executed remotely via SSH: if you're watching the build, you can kill the local script if it gets stuck (i.e., is waiting for Aut2Exe to exit), but the Aut2Exe process is still running on the remote machine and has to be killed there. A local Aut2Exe already exits with a non-zero status once the window is closed (which is only a minor problem; see below). The big snag is the remote processing; cleaner local processing would be a plus. Note: For use in repetitive compilation testing, I created an AutoIt script that waits for Aut2Exe error windows to appear and closes them. In a Bash test-script, this error monitoring script is started in the background at the beginning of the test and killed at the end. This could be used with local builds, but I doubt it can be adapted to work on a remote machine since the remote SSH processes run in Windows Session 0 (including the login shell). Session 0 doesn't seem to be an issue if Aut2Exe exits normally, however. Any suggestions? (Abandoning remote compilation is not an option at the moment; we're trying to work our way out of that.)
kcvinu posted a topic in AutoIt Technical DiscussionHi all, For last few weeks, i am in search of some good articles about windows messages and notifications. I am reading Charles Petzold's Windows Programming 5th edition in google books. Since the prize of that book costs nearly my two day's wages, i am depending google books. Then i wandered a lot of websites for gathering articles. Atlast i found a tool on MSDN site. Name is Control Spy. At first i thought that it is like the WindowInfo tool in AutoIt. But no, it is an incredible tool for a develepor. We can learn more about the behaviour of window controls and their messages and notifications. This is the link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=4635 After installation, go to the directory and there is a word document. Read and learn more about how a windows control behaves.
A UDF to connect to IRC using TCP Functions, as well as perform actions once connected. WANTED: Technical Writer able to create / maintain a helpfile (.chm) using the Autoit helpfile layout for an negotiated rate. Notes: Originally created by Chip. UDF Headers updated compared to old script. Error and Parameter Handling updated compared to old script. If you need to bypass the RFC compliance of this UDF, use _IRCRaw. The majority of the old functions have been modified. It will break most, if not all, scripts using the old UDF. These commands should work on every server following either RFC 1459 (legacy) or RFC 2812 (preferred). Potential Uses: IRC Chat Clients Chatroom Integration for software IRC Bots for Channel / Server Administration IRC Bots for Games such as Hangman, Mafia, and WereWolf Remote Administration without having to setup your own AutoIt server Functions: _IRCChannelInvite _IRCChannelJoin _IRCChannelKick _IRCChannelPart _IRCChannelTopic _IRCConnect _IRCDisconnect _IRCGetMsg _IRCMultiMode _IRCMultiSendMsg _IRCRaw _IRCSelfOper _IRCSelfSetNick _IRCSelfSetStatus _IRCServerPing _IRCServerPong _IRCServerTime _IRCServerVersion Extra Functions: _IRCReplyTo (IRCExtras.au3) _IRCStripSpecial (IRCExtras.au3) Downloads: Additional Links: Chips' Old UDF Topic: DISCLAIMER: While these downloads are more stable than the ones above, I do not have time to thoroughly test all functions and variable entries.

(Can't Fix) Freenode requires registration for part messages thus the part message in example doesn't show up (Can't fix) Messages (e.g. PRIVMSG) are not forwarded?, when it contains umlauts/german mutations and when the message only contains a dot '.' (Unconfirmed) Warnings: Do NOT send a lot of messages at once. MOST networks will disconnect you. SOME networks will permanently ban you. A MINORITY will harshly retailiate. Do NOT use the Sleep() function in your scripts. It prevents you from receiving any new data, can disconnect your from the network, and have other undesired consequences. Use the TimerInit() and TimerDiff() functions and possibly a message queue. To Do: Possibly add in SSL functionality Create More Functions for IRC commands An entire IRC daemon written in AutoIt Possibly Include Kips TCP UDF for ASync Port Listening in Example Create Additional UDFs for extras such as CTCP, DCC, and Error Lookup Experiment with having functions check for the reply and see if reliable. Upcoming Changes: To Be Decided
