Parameter passing between Autoit & my program

Recommended Posts

jrumbaug

I'm new to Autoit, but I am impressed with what it can do. I want to use it to alow my Visual Foxpro application to send and retrieve data via Internet Explorer.

I think I have the automation of I.E. down. (God bless Autoit3). Now I want to integrate it into my application. I need guidance on what route to take. I see that I can pass parameters to an Autoit program, but is there a good way to get info back from Autoit?

I was hoping to use AutoitX as a DLL. I have tested AutoitX and it runs in Visual Foxpro, but it appears that I would need to re-write and/or adapt all of the I.E. user defined functions. If there is a way to use the UDF functions via the DLL, please guide me, and my problens are solved.

Thank you in advance for suggestions.

You can have AutoIt set the text of a hidden textbox or something similar in your FoxPro application.

Thank you for your sugestion. I think I can make that fly. So far I have only been using Autoit to control I.E., but you are right, I could make it "talk to" my program also.
