DllCall troubles

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's the C++ source of the DLL function I'm calling:

<AU3ReadWriteMemory.dll>

extern "C"__declspec(dllexport) float ReadFloat ( long pid, void *address ) {
    DWORD read=0;
    float valread=0;
    HANDLE gamehandle;

    gamehandle=OpenProcess(PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS, false, pid);
    if( gamehandle == 0 ) {
        return -2;
    } else {
        ReadProcessMemory(gamehandle, address, &valread, 4, &read);
        if( read == 0 ) {
            return -1;
        } else {
            return valread;
        }
    }
}

And here is the function that I'm having problems with:

<ReadWriteFuncs.au3>

Func _ReadFloat($EXEName, $Address)
    Local $ProcessID = ProcessExists($EXEName)
    If Not $ProcessID = 0 Then
        Local $ret = DllCall("AU3ReadWriteMemory.dll", "long", "ReadFloat", "long", $ProcessID, "long", $Address)
        If @error Then
            Return -2
        Else
            msgbox(0, "", $ret[0])
            Return $ret[0]
        EndIf
    Else
        Return -3
    EndIf
EndFunc

The problem is that I cannot get it to return a Float/Single type variable, or even a string with a decimal, seemingly no matter what I try. I'm all out of ideas.

My crappy quick-fix was to chang "float ReadFloat" to "long ReadFloat" and convert valread to a long type variable before returning it -- it returns everything up until the decimal, which is better than nothing -- but it bugs me that I cannot get it to return the Float.

I'm sure it's something extremely simple or just a limitation of AutoIt's DllCall function, but, being as this is my second day on both C++ coding and using DllCall, I cannot figure it out for the life of me. Any help would be very appreciated.

If you use the beta version of autoit and change your function to have a pointer to a float for the return:

extern "C"__declspec(dllexport) float ReadFloat ( long pid, void *address, float *ret )

Then you could do:

$float_struct = DllStructCreate("float")
Local $ret = DllCall("AU3ReadWriteMemory.dll", "long", "ReadFloat", "long", $ProcessID, "long", $Address,"ptr",DllStructPtr($float_struct))
$float = DllStructGet($float_struct,1)
DllStructFree($float_struct)
return $float

Well, that was easy, as I assumed. I regret not posting here 6 hours ago when I first ran across the problem :(
