HTML GUI

8 posts in this topic

Hello everyone! Is it possible to use HTML to design my AutoIt GUI? Because the truth is, I feel that it's easier for me to design my GUI in HTML than in AutoIt. I was thinking about embedded a page in my GUI or something, but I was worried about how my page would communicate with AutoIt. Any ideas? :D

Thanks in advance!

I think this would be very hard to run smooth, have you tested Koda?

Yes, but I'd still rather use HTML because I have more GUI control, and I could pimp may application out (graphics wise) more easily. :D For all the apps I've made I've used Koda, tough.

You could create an embedded instance of IE in a GUI, then load a local .html file. See the help file example under GuiCtrlCreateObj().

You can also run AutoItX as an active-X scripting object within a web page I believe, though I haven't done that one myself.

:D

Here's someone with a weird error, but it works though:

And it's a good example.

Would AutoIt be able to catch the URL of the page that the embedded IE box? Because maybe then it could read varibles of of the URL...

Get a reference with _IEAttach() using "embedded" and then _IEPropertyGet() for "locationurl".
