AU3Automation - export AU3 scripts via COM interfaces


Recommended Posts

Every day I understand better and better my own decision not to use any 64-bit Windows: this WoW64 reflection is definitely a product of a nightmarish drug trip of some MS "designer". Whatever, I made a second attempt of fitting AU3Aut COM server in this 64-bit "world".

Ever wanted to be able to use functions in your AU3 scripts from WSH, VBasic or other COM capable programming language? Well, now it is possible. Please meet: AU3Automation library. It consists of tw

Lol, just know that what you're doing is appreciated (and you can't tell me it's not educational, at least.)

Hopefully the odyssey of porting the proxy to 64-bit ends with this release.

This describes best how this job felt:

With release of version 1.0.6 all files have been pushed to SourceForge. Links to downloads, source code (DLL too) etc. are in the top post.

Hi,

I'm new to autoIT. I'm in the middle of finding a right tool to develop a middle tier between Windows and web app and found autoIT. The middle tier app must be able to

Requirements

1. Can make used of both COM and XPCOM.

2. Can host both COM and XPOM. A link toXPCOM

I've been reading a lot of posts on this forum till your very very interesting post. I think it's the only post close to what I'm looking for (If I'm not misunderstood) but as I'vd said I'm new to autoIT thus there are some questions need to ask.

Question

1. Is your post about making used of existing COM and HOST them ?

2. If it is so in question 1,can I use it as activeX in web app ? (I haven't test it.)

3. Obviously, autoIT supports COM, what about XPCOM ?

4. Is autoIT good for my requirements ?

Thank you in advance. Any ideas and/or suggestions are welcome

Regards

Prakob

Sorry, forgot to point that out. Actually all required files are on SF, I extended the leading post to remind people to look in Misc folder too.

So, I haven't tried this, but I assume this tool/feature would allow one to expose AutoIt 3rd party libraries/UDFs over COM, as long as you wrap or export what you want to be exposed for COM?

That would a nice way to work around (or "complement") the limitation of AutoItX exposing only the Windows GUI automation functions of AutoIt (and not the rest of the UDFs available, etc.).

If my assumption is correct, anyone try out this tool against much of the UDF library offerings that are packaged with AutoIt? I'm interested, through experiences of others, in knowing which UDF libraries work well with this COM server and which don't.

By the way, the SourceForge project page - Support section, you could probably edit that to tell users to get support here in the official AutoIt forums, etc. as it's not likely they can get support from Sourceforge:

 

AutoIt-v3-COM Automation Bridge says the best way to get help with its software is by visiting http://sourceforge.net.

 

or enable the mailing list, issue tracker features of SourceForge project there. I recall those are available as I have 1 or 2 projects myself there (not AutoIt related though).
