Executing Batch Files

Recommended Posts


Hey Guys,

Can I use AutoIT to create GUI menu that will be used to Execute batch files ?

5 buttons - Each Button = Different Batch File

any tips how to go around that ?

In addition to what Volly mentioned (excellent idea), I suggest that you should pay particular attention to ShellExecute() and/or ShellExecuteWait()


Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***

Yes, and with some experience with GUI creation, it should be an easy task. There is a file in the AutoIt directory called msgbox_onevent in AutoIt\install\Examples\GUI\Simple. This demonstrates the creation of a GUI with three buttons. If you open it in SCITE and study the syntax, look up the commands in the helpfile (press F1), you should get a good idea of how it's done. For the example, the events for each of the buttons are msgbox popups. All you need to do is replace the msgbox with a Run() or ShellExecute() function, with a path for your .bat file. This is a template, you will have to do some learning to make it work for your situation but it will be fun. Good luck!

EDIT: I missed the above 2 posts, so please forgive me! AutoIt 1 2 3 is a great tool!
