AutoIt3ExecuteLine and custom functions

7 posts in this topic

i have a custom function _CopyWithProgress (made by SumTingWong which works great! by the way) which i would like to use AutoIt3ExecuteLine with. I think i have the quotations correct but the error i get is "Unknown function name"

so im wondering if we can use AutoIt3ExecuteLine with custom functions. has anyone been able to?

Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "_CopyWithProgress(''' & $path_name & ''', ''' & $source_path & ''', ''' & $target_path & ''')"')

thanks

Hi,

why not using something like this?

If @Compiled Then
    Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" ' & @AutoItPID)
Else
    Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" ' & '/AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" ' & @AutoItPID, '', @SW_HIDE)
EndIf

I don't think so.

Let's say ...

Your main script looks like this:

ConsoleWrite("Start" & @CRLF)

If @Compiled Then
    Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" ' & @AutoItPID)
Else
    Run('"' & @AutoItExe & '" ' & '/AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & "Msgbox.au3" & '" ' & @AutoItPID, '', @SW_HIDE)
EndIf

For $i = 0 To 10
    ConsoleWrite($i & @CRLF)
    Sleep(1000)
Next

and you helper script is namend Msgbox.au3 in the same folder.

The MsgBox.au3 looks like this

MsgBox(0, "Hello", "Hello")

As you can see, the main script runs although the MsgBox is shown, cause it is run in a seperate process.

ooo so 2 seperate au3 files?

im confused.. so the script i have now that runs the copywithprogress part is considered the main script

or is that the second script?

the @ScriptFullPath and @AutoitPID variables are throwing me off..

Okay, one more try. :blink:

You want to execute an Autoit function from your main script. You tried your luck with AutoIt3ExecuteLine, but this command will fail when calling a complete function within your script.

Another way would be starting your code in a complete other process by using the function I posted above. This way you need to put the code in another *.au3 file which will be given to the autoit3.exe to start it.

This is nearly the same way an Autoitscript.exe works. There is the kernel (Autoit3.exe) and the au3Script bundled in the exe. Starting the exe the kernel will read the au3 script and executes it.

Does the clearify anything?
