passing parameter to application and log files

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to do some examples to achive a bigger task, one of which is my earlier postings ..

In this small example, i am trying to pass variable as command for the application.

; Script Start - Add your code below here

; Attempt to create a unlimited parameters like ** in c, but not sure how.
; Pass this variable in a loop to command
; Create a log file text with append and save as system time
; Do nothing until a Dialog box comes up ..

Local $cnt, $li[1] = ["Arnold", "Carol"]
$cnt = 0
For $cnt=0 to 1 step 1
    ConsoleWrite("notepad = " &$li[$cnt] &@CRLF ); Check if it prints the variable
    Run("Notepad.exe" &$li[$cnt]) ; It hangs here, cannot open notepad with variable name
    ; I want to see if i can pass a variable to the command ..

    WinWaitActive("Notepad")
    send("!&n")
Next

    ;WinWaitActive(&$li[$cnt] - "Notepad")

Any help in commands to use, example of log file text with append will be appreciated.

Cheers

Your $Li variable needed to have 2 elements, not 1...you also needed a space between noetpad.exe and your variable

Local $Cnt, $Li[2] = ["Arnold", "Carol"]
$Cnt = 0  ;no need to declare this like this...you should really use Local or Global if you want to be safe
For $Cnt = 0 To 1 Step 1
    ConsoleWrite("notepad = " & $Li[$Cnt] & @CRLF); Check if it prints the variable
    Run("Notepad.exe " & $Li[$Cnt]) ; It hangs here, cannot open notepad with variable name
    ; I want to see if i can pass a variable to the command ..

    WinWaitActive("Notepad")
    Send("!&n")
Next

Thanks Varian,

You are right, $Li s actually 2 variables, i posted while i tried to check for single loop. Sorry about it.

however the program hangs while trying to open notepad with command variable. I have inserted sace as suggested.

Also please help me to create a log file with append and save as system time and date.

Local $li[2] = ["Arnold", "Carol"]
Global $cnt = 0
For $cnt=0 to 1 step 1
    ConsoleWrite("notepad = " &$li[$cnt] &@CRLF ); Check if it prints the variable
    Run("Notepad.exe"  &$li[$cnt]) ; It hangs here, cannot open notepad with variable name
    ; I want to see if i can pass a variable to the command ..

    WinWaitActive("Notepad")
    send("!&n")
Next

    ;WinWaitActive(&$li[$cnt] - "Notepad")

Hi Varian,

Thank you very much. It rocks .. It would have been hard for me to spot. Can i ask you two more questions so that i can implement my program.

1.I am calling a third party application which prompts dialog box, when it comes is not sure. Is there a way to wait for the dialog box named "Success" to appear.

2. Is there a way to implement indefinite length of string array

Once again thanks a ton. cheers
