redirect stdout to an Edit control

3 posts in this topic

Hi !

I'm trying to display the stdout of an external console application in an Edit control.

The pb is that the stdout is not like cmd.exe console (characters not well formated, and lot of lines is displayed)

any suggestion ?

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 625, 443, 192, 124)
$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 88, 80, 409, 273)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Edit1")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 504, 32, 75, 25, $WS_GROUP)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
Local $foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c ipconfig /all", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)




Local $line=""
While 1
    $line &= StdoutRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    ;MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)
    GUICtrlSetData($Edit1,  $line)
Wend

While 1
    $line &= StderrRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
   ; MsgBox(0, "STDERR read:", $line)

   GUICtrlSetData($Edit1,  $line)
Wend


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

hi,

in my case i did it like this:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "ipconfig /all |findstr /i /C:""Physical Adress"" >>" & FileGetShortName(@AppDataDir) & "\chk.ag", "", @SW_HIDE)

i fill a temp-file with (for example) just the physical adresses.

then i read the file into a variable and do some strin-operations to sort it like i want...

maybe this helps you.

it is an idea but it is not a solution.

in fact, the external console process (antivirus csscan.exe of mcafee), has a stream output like a progress list of scanned files. My edit control must display the same effect
