ControlSend Questions

8 posts in this topic

Lets say I've run this.

Run(@ComSpec & "ping google.com -n 100")

The only way to stop it is with Ctrl+C. Now seeing as I haven't used /k, the Command Prompt window isn't visible. How can I send Ctrl+C? I'm 99.9% sure I can use "ControlSend", but I don't know for certain, or know how to do it.

The syntax seems to be incorrect. i.e path\to\cmd.exeping

Run() does return the ProcessID. You can just use ProcessClose($pid) if $pid contains value that resulted form Run() i.e $pid = Run('some file').

Or Using RunWait() and the /c switch on @Comspec seems like a better concept to me.

Unless you wish to be more gracious about the procedure and make it harder for yourself then what perhaps is needed.

I'm open to suggestions, but what does "/c" do?

If you know how to use a command prompt then try typing in cmd /? and pressing the return key.

/c automatically terminates the cmd process once the commands passed are complete.

Ah, Lets just say half way through the command, I wanted to end it. Not when the command is finished. :(

As in a single CMD command?

You could ProcessClose() it.

Perhaps the best way to control CMD (@Comspec) is by using the STDIN, STDOUT and/or STDERR parameters in Run(). Something for you to play with. :mellow:
