My first script

17 posts in this topic

I tried to run the notepad script from the tutorial, but it doesn't write anything on the notepad.

I'm runing it Windows 7 ultimate x64 french version.

After that i tried to compile it and it created multiple instance of the program (approx. 50)

Here is my modified script so that normally it should work on my machine :

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.3.6.1
 Author:         condor666

 Script Function:
    Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Sans titre - Bloc-notes")
Send("azerty")
WinClose("Bloc-notes")
WinWaitActive("Bloc-notes", "Voulez vous enregistrer les modifications de sans titre ?")
Send("!r")

Did you name your script notepad.au3 that when compiled is notepad.exe? ( that would explain why it keeps running copies of itself ).

If so, rename it to something else.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Ok, now the mutiple instance are solved, but it still writes nothing in the notepad. An idea ?

A note should be added to the tutorial about this. It seems like a pretty commong mistake.

Surely it is common sense and does not need to be noted.

Sense, yes. Common, not quite. This exact situation keeps popping up every now and then.

The choice is between one person taking the time to review the tutorial (and possibly causing almost everyone reading it to waste 5 seconds of their lives) and aswering someone on the forum every now and then.

I'm happy either way. :)

Adding notes like this will create a lengthy list of remarks which, by definition, aren't read. :)

My vote goes to try to think and understand what you are doing when you see a program being shelled over and over.

Is Sans titre - Bloc-notes exactly as it appears in the notepad window title?

It's case sensative unless you change you Opt("WinTitleMatchMode") setting.

Yes it is, i've taken a screenshot :

Run("notepad.exe")
If Not WinWait("Sans titre - Bloc-notes","",5) Then
    MsgBox(0,"Cant wait anymore","sry")
    Exit
EndIf
Sleep(100)
SendKeepActive("Sans titre - Bloc-notes")
Send("azerty")
WinClose("Sans titre - Bloc-notes")

Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

I've discovered a strange thing, now it works partially, the text is still the same but i've copied it from AutoIt Window Info.

It still doesn't close the program

Probably some strange char in there

try to run this and it will probably tell you where is that diffrent char (ASCll Character list from help file related), post the picture of msgbox if you wona share where and if it finded some diffrance in title :)

#include <Array.au3>
Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]")
$c = StringSplit("Sans titre - Bloc-notes","")
$a = StringSplit(WinGetTitle(""),"")
Dim $b[$c[0]+1][2]
For $y = 1 To $c[0]
    $c[$y] = Asc($c[$y])
    $b[$y][1] = $c[$y]
    $a[$y] = Asc($a[$y])
    $b[$y][0] = $a[$y]
Next
For $r = 0 to UBound($b,1) - 1
    If $b[$r][0] <> $b[$r][1] Then MsgBox(0,$b[$r][0]&" diffrent from "&$b[$r][1]&" pos. "&$r,"'"&Chr($b[$r][0])&"' diffrent from "&"'"&Chr($b[$r][1])&"' on position "&$r)
Next

or try to use class instead of title in your script

Cool xD

so there is diffrance in space charecters ("ASCll Charactes" help file)

So try to use "[CLASS:Notepad]" instead of title from notepad win, and other class for your WinWaitActive("Bloc-notes", "Voulez vous enregistrer les modifications de sans titre ?"), use win info to get class (its probably "[CLASS:#32770]"), and it shud work

or try Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) and instead of full win title use first 10 char-s of title

edit: (changed ASCII to ASCll in text above, misspelled it :) )
