How to receive WM_COPYDATA?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to use the Audiosurf API (see here) command

ascommand registerlistenerwindow MyWindowTitle

(see near the bottom of the top post for more info), so I can get the title and artist of the song that is being played, but I am totally confused as to how to receive WM_COPYDATA from another program. I have looked at several examples on the forum, but I need further explanation about how to use it, specifically for what I'm trying to do.

This should receive and display a string send via WM_COPYDATA.

#include <windowsconstants.au3>

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

Global $sWM_COPYDATA_Received_String

$hgui = GUICreate("Receiving hWnd")

While 1
    If $sWM_COPYDATA_Received_String Then
        MsgBox(0, "Received String via WM_COPYDATA", $sWM_COPYDATA_Received_String)
        $sWM_COPYDATA_Received_String = ""

Func WM_COPYDATA($hWnd, $MsgID, $wParam, $lParam)
    ; http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=105861&view=findpost&p=747887
    ; Melba23, based on code from Yashied

    Switch $hWnd
        Case $hgui
            Local $tCOPYDATA = DllStructCreate("dword;dword;ptr", $lParam)
            Local $tMsg = DllStructCreate("char[" & DllStructGetData($tCOPYDATA, 2) & "]", DllStructGetData($tCOPYDATA, 3))
            $sWM_COPYDATA_Received_String = DllStructGetData($tMsg, 1)


    Return True

EndFunc   ;==>WM_COPYDATA

Func _Exit()
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit
