IPC

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am new to windows programming. Wanted some clarification when I use AnutoIt script to do some job in windows.

What could be the way for my autoit script (or converted exe) communicate with another application?

For example, I have a VC application and from my VC application, I wanted to execute an Autoit Script? Similarly, my AutoIt Script also needs to send some data back to my VC application. (2 way communication between by VC app and AutoIt script).

Thanks,

-Sid

That depends on how you need to interact with your program. Check out the help file and I would probably start with the Control commands (ControlClick, ControlSend)

What I am looking is, possible to invoke the same autoit script with different parameters from my vc application? Depending on the parameter passed, script will do job A or it will do job B.

In the other way communication, autoit script wants to send some status back to my VC application, (say Inform VC app that I am in state A or I am in state B.) Based on this information, my VC app is suppoed to differet jobs.

Overall, what I am inetersted is the best IPC mechanism between these 2 different applications.

For example, sharing a file and writing/reading this file could be a solution. I am not sure. But, what is the best mechanism to achieve this?

I usually use ini files to save and pass information between scripts and has worked very well for me.
