how do i use dde in autoit?

6 posts in this topic

so, i was looking to do some basic dde things with mirc, because mirc is a good program to use for dde, but i dont see any dde type things in the help file

and i dunno how to work with dlls just yet, so what im really asking is if someone could give a me a few examples of how to use dllcall and other dll typee stuff, and how do i figure

out what functions a dll contains, i realize a dll is a library of functions (or so i think) but how do i use them and how do i figure out what functions they actually have

thanks in advance guys

Dll's usually have documentation describing what functionality they expose. As far as examples go, the forum is chock-full of them. Also, what is DDE? I only know it as Dynamic Data Exchange which mIRC is not a good program for at all. Remember that we're AutoIt experts here, not mIRC experts.

You have everything you need to get started. Unless you have more specifics questions..

mIRC DDE documentation: http://www.quickfox.net/help/winhlp32.exe/mIRC/mirc.hlp/id/dde.html

Leads to:

Using SendMessage to communicate: http://www.quickfox.net/help/winhlp32.exe/mIRC/mirc.hlp/id/96zzc_.html

AutoIt supports SendMessage via the _SendMessage function. See the help file.
