What is the best way to share Data between two Autoit Applications?

Hi All,

What is the best way to share Data between two Autoit Applications?

The options I can think of are as below.

  • Creating a file and dumping the data in it.
  • Putting the data in the Windows clipboard using ClipPut command in Autoit.

Please let me know if there is any other options.

I guess it would depend on what kind of data your are sharing.

You could use SQLite if you need a whole database to store data (See SQLite Management).

Alternatively you could also use an ini file to store the information (See IniRead and IniWrite).

If you'd rather not have any kind of file you can always use the Windows Registry (See Registry Management).

TCP, a hidden form. I would say don't use the clipboard because the user can change it. And how will you deal with two programs writing to the same file at the same time?

I bit more complex method could be using tcp.


If you learn from It, it's not a mistake
