AutoIt Extension Library for Robot Framework


Recommended Posts

AutoItLibrary is a Python keyword library that extends Robot Framework by providing keywords based on the COM interface to AutoIt. Information on Robot Framework is available here: http://code.google.com/p/robotframework/. AutoItLibrary is released in a similar manner to other Robot Framework extension libraries, as a Google Code Open Source project hosted here: http://code.google.com/p/robotframework-autoitlibrary/. The work on this library was supported by my employer, Texas Instruments, Inc., which also holds the copyright on this work.

I welcome your comments, suggestions and other feedback on this new integration of AutoIt and Robot Framework.

Best Regards,

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

I'm not too confident that you will get a reply. The OP has been offline for about 4 1/2 years.

I suggest to search the web for "AutoitLibrary robot framework example" or something similar.

Hi,

I have installed the Autoit for win7 as following

1- we should install "ActivePython-2.7.8.10-win32.exe" because Autoit library don't work with 64bit version
2- install Python for Windows Extensions by "pywin32-218.win32-py2.7.exe"
3- install "wxPython2.8-win32-unicode-2.8.12.1-py27.exe" for RIDE GUI
3.1_ download or use get-pip.py from the installation directory
3.2_ connect to internet
3.3_ install (pip) by: "python get-pip.py" and restart
3.4_ install (setuptools) by: "pip install -U setuptools"
4- install Robot Framework by PIP command by: "pip install robotframework"
5- install Robot Framework IDE(RIDE) by: "pip install robotframework-ride"
6- for install pyUSB library extract "pyusb-1.0.0b2.zip" in C:\Python27\Scripts path and run: "python setup.py install"
7- install python image library by "PIL-1.1.7.win32-py2.7.exe"
8- install "autoit-v3-setup.exe"
9- for install Autoit library extract "AutoItLibrary-1.1.zip" in C:\Python27\Scripts path and run: "python setup.py install"

10- pip install -u robotframework-requests

11-pip install certifi

12-pip install pyopenssl ndg-httpsclient pyasn1

13-pip install urllib3

14-pip install pywinauto

When I am executing the C:\RobotFramework\Extensions\AutoItLibrary\tests\RobotIDE.bat

I have an already made example that has been used the AutoItLibrary.

The problem is, when I am running the example, I have the following Errors:

[ ERROR ] Error in test library 'AutoItLibrary': Creating keyword 'Run' failed: Keyword with same name defined multiple times.
[ ERROR ] Error in test library 'AutoItLibrary': Creating keyword 'Win Wait' failed: Keyword with same name defined multiple times.
[ ERROR ] Error in test library 'AutoItLibrary': Creating keyword 'Win Wait Active' failed: Keyword with same name defined multiple times.
[ ERROR ] Error in test library 'AutoItLibrary': Creating keyword 'Win Wait Close' failed: Keyword with same name defined multiple times.

What is wrong with me?

Kind regards,

BD

C:\RobotFramework\Extensions\AutoItLibrary\tests\RobotIDE.bat that is executed by me is exactly the example of AutoIt.

I did not change or modify it. I am wondered that Why the AutoItLibrary that has been installed correctly (without any error) has such big problem in its own example.

its archived since 2010 so do not expect support on it.

Alternatives are completely depending on what you want to achieve. many datadriven and keyword automation frameworks are flowing around

ie.udf, ff.udf, chrome.udf in the examples forum

native autoit commands can do a lot on windows controls
