Interface AutoItObject IUIAutomation

29 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

edit: updated the code sample based on the answers from trancexx now better interface definitions

* I am definitily missing the logic in how to initialize the interface and object(s).

Some advice from the more AIO experts will be helpfull?

probably not understanding the difference between the functions to create an object and the wrapper functions.

The easy (working) example in VBA (within Excel) under Windows XP with Automation API 3.0 installed (is XP + .NET 4)

the UIAutomationCore.DLL is an unmanaged DLL and should be possible to call this with autoitobject

Sub test()
'      uuid(30CBE57D-D9D0-452A-AB13-7AC5AC4825EE) interface IUIAutomation
    Dim c As New CUIAutomation                    'reference to IUIautomation object
    Debug.Print c.GetRootElement.CurrentClassName 'Just to see if the basics work
End Sub

Output of above will be #32768 (the desktop)

As there is no classname in the registry creating with functions like createobj will not do the trick to get access

Then I try converting this VBA to AutoItObject code making use of generator

and the latest AIO library

EndGOAL is to have access to this UIAutomationCore.DLL so many more objects/controls can be looked/manipulated on from within AutoIT.

Probably helpfull [

uuid(FF48DBA4-60EF-4201-AA87-54103EEF594E),

version(1.0),

helpstring("The Central Class for UIAutomation")

]

coclass CUIAutomation {

[default] interface IUIAutomation;

};

So I would assume I have to make

** The code I have so far

#include <AutoItObject.au3>
;~ Assume to have loaded the DLL first
Global Const $hUIAutomation = DllOpen("uiautomationcore.dll")

_AutoItObject_StartUp()

You have made several mistakes in your code. First you have to read AutoItObject help file to see what datatypes are supported. For example there is no IUIAutomationCacheRequest type. You have to cast it to ptr because in essence that what any interface pointer is; Pointer. Same thing goes for any other similar type.

Another thing is that AutoItobject supports bstr data type (as opposed to AutoIt itself). That means that if some method of some object defined through its interface requires or outputs BSTR, you have to specify that exact data type. Here's your working example:

#include <AutoItObject.au3>

Global Const $sCLSID_CUIAutomation = "{FF48DBA4-60EF-4201-AA87-54103EEF594E}"

I haven't corrected all data types, only types of those methods that I have used. You do it for other for practice, if nothing.

thanx a zillion times this will help me definitely in the right direction.

Will correct the AIO generator to generate better matching interface (will post corrected code in that specific thread).

** One specific question for this UIAutomationCore.DLL.

to me it looks like a normal COM object DLL as I can use in VBA the construction NEW CUIAutomation and after that its a normal COM object.

Shouldn't it then be possible with AIO library to do this? (as there is no instantiation string in the registry)

;~ method 3
Global $objUIAutomation = _AutoItObject_ObjCreateEx("c:\windows\system32\uiautomationcore.dll", $sIID_IUIAutomation)

;~and after that use it as a "normal" COM object like below?

consolewrite($objUIAutomation.getRootElement.CurrentClassName)

Compared to VBA it seems so clumsy to get to the same result in AutoIT with all those interface definitions to make

VBA will load typelib resource of that dll and construct the usable interface from it.

To make one thing clear, this could be done with AutoIt/AutoItObject too, but it will hit the wall on AutoIt's inability to handle byref situations properly. Any variable passed to any method by reference should be processed like that. Considering AutoIt is not enough advanced we have to use array to collect byref-ed. For example, that's why

c.GetRootElement.CurrentClassName
...is impossible with current AutoIt and that's why you are forced to use interface definitions even if typlib is available.

thx.

I am studying now on the bstr* types you referred to and I understand what you are saying but not fully sure if I read thru the sources of

WIN32API wtypes.h enum VARENUM and thru

AIO main.cpp the vartype function it seems that

VT_BSTR = 8 is translated to VT_UI4, // ulong in static VARTYPE VarTypeArray[]

How should I read those functions in AIO? I would assume that its translating the Win32 variant types to a matching AIO type.

Actually I see the function is doing that by going sequentially thru the list but only returns the first match.

At first sight I thought you just did a direct lookup based on the variant wtype.h values

As there are multiple matches in the array when will a second match be returned? Looking at the code I think its impossible.

Or are they there for future improvement(s)?

edit: Stupid of myself see the answer already. Reading the function in the incorrect order. Its to match the string back to the variant of wtypes instead of wtypes to AIO

I have a question or two.

Why do you insist on defining $tagIUnknown? Besides the fact that $dtagIUnknown is defined inside AutoItObject.au3, your definition have completely wrong datatypes.

Another question is what's with _AutoItObject_CLSIDFromString() inside CUIAutomation.au3? Why do you need all that "active" constants/variables?

Regarding interfaces definitions, AutoItObject suggests so called, interface files. In AutoItObject package you have folder named Interfaces. Inside of it there are number of intfc files, definition files. That's how your CUIAutomation.au3 should look like.

edit: and parameter separator is ";", not comma.

thx for the direction. Changed the cuiautomation.au3 in previous post to be more in line with the intfc files.

As I am learning a lot of stuff at the same time

- TLBINFO object and your post(s) on doing it from the ground up

- As AIOWrapperGenerator gave some good direction

- Your TLB Viewer inspired me to combine the stuff

- With CUIAutomation we can do a lot of nice stuff (if events work you can build a macrorecorder easily in AutoIt)

- Constants are there as I generate everything and I am sure I need some of those constants later on like

-- PropertyId's

-- EventID's

This is one of the areas I am interested in to get working ($tagIUIAutomation )

"AddAutomationEventHandler hresult(int,ptr,long,ptr,ptr);" & _ ;AddAutomationEventHandler hresult([in] int ,[in] IUIAutomationElement *,[in] TreeScope ,[in] IUIAutomationCacheRequest *,[in] IUIAutomationEventHandler *)

thx. It works correctly. Still a lot for me to study on but I think I am getting there slowly in understanding this stuff

__ptr__ some kind of special syntax to get a pointer?

Do you know of eventhandling stuff can work? http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd388739(v=vs.85).aspx

"AddFocusChangedEventHandler hresult(ptr,ptr);" & _         ;AddFocusChangedEventHandler hresult([in] IUIAutomationCacheRequest *,[in] IUIAutomationFocusChangedEventHandler *)
"RemoveFocusChangedEventHandler hresult(ptr);" & _          ;RemoveFocusChangedEventHandler hresult([in] IUIAutomationFocusChangedEventHandler *)

Man, too bad I hadn't seen this thread before... I already have the entire UI Automation interface defined in my own code, but have yet to start experimenting with it. I also have worked on the IAccessible interface in the past, but found it to be lacking in certain areas (plus some programs implement it wrong)..

The IUIAutomation interface is definitely the future for program automation, and the developers of AutoIt would be wise to look into it if they still want AutoIt to be relevant today (its already failing to work for a number of programs).

How can I handle an array thats returned or other complex type? (UIA_RuntimeIdPropertyId VT_I4|VT_ARRAY)

These are the descriptions for returned types http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd319579(v=vs.85).aspx

This works for a single property

$aCall= $oDesktop.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_ProcessIdPropertyId,0)
$x=$aCall[2]
ConsoleWrite("Yes, we did get the $UIA_ProcessIdPropertyId: " & $x & @CRLF)

This works not (breaks the executable)

as it returns an array

$aCall= $oDesktop.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_RuntimeIdPropertyId,0)
$x=_AutoItObject_VariantRead($aCall[2])
ConsoleWrite("No, we did notget the $UIA_ProcessIdPropertyId: " & $x[2] & @CRLF)

This works not as it returns an array

$aCall= $oDesktop.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_RuntimeIdPropertyId,0)
$x=$aCall[2]
ConsoleWrite("No, we did notget the $UIA_ProcessIdPropertyId: " & $x[2] & @CRLF)

This works not as it returns an array

$aCall= $oDesktop.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_RuntimeIdPropertyId,0)
ConsoleWrite("No, we did notget the $UIA_ProcessIdPropertyId: " & $acall[2][1] & @CRLF)

There are arrays and there are arrays. AutoIt will accept only array of variants. You have array of int-s.

Workaround (for now) could be to write your own _AutoItObject_VariantRead function.

;...

$pVAR = Number(_AutoItObject_VariantSet(0, 0))

$aCall = $oDesktop.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_RuntimeIdPropertyId, $pVAR)
$x = $aCall[2]

$aArray = _My_VariantRead($x)

_ArrayDisplay($aArray )


Func _My_VariantRead($pVariant)

    Local $var = DllStructCreate($__Au3Obj_tagVARIANT, $pVariant)
    Local $VT = DllStructGetData($var, "vt"), $type
    Switch $VT
        Case BitOR($__Au3Obj_VT_ARRAY, $__Au3Obj_VT_I4)
            Local $pSafeArray = DllStructGetData($var, "data")
            Local $iBound, $pData, $iLbound, $aOut[1]
            If 0 = __Au3Obj_SafeArrayGetUBound($pSafeArray, 1, $iBound) Then
                __Au3Obj_SafeArrayGetLBound($pSafeArray, 1, $iLbound)
                $iBound += 1 - $iLbound
                If 0 = __Au3Obj_SafeArrayAccessData($pSafeArray, $pData) Then
                    Local $tData = DllStructCreate("int[" & $iBound & "]", $pData)
                    ReDim $aOut[$iBound]
                    For $i = 1 To $iBound
                        $aOut[$i - 1] = DllStructGetData($tData, 1, $i)
                    Next
                    __Au3Obj_SafeArrayUnaccessData($pSafeArray)
                EndIf
            EndIf
            Return $aOut
        Case Else
            Return SetError(1, 0, '')
    EndSwitch

EndFunc

For that you have to change definition of GetCurrentPropertyValue method to

"GetCurrentPropertyValue hresult(int;ptr);"

It will be built-in in some new release of AutoItObject.

Probably also to add in new version of AutoIt: $__Au3Obj_VT_R8 as a double

All is added already. It's dealt with on lower level. Don't use that code and leave variant*.

I'll make new release of AutoItObject. You just continue working on your automation thing, I'll follow you.

Any help appreciated on catching the UIAutomation events in AutoIT object code?

1. HandleFocusChangedEvent I should implement myself somehow with func _HandleFocusChangedEvent($oElem)

Do I have to convert $Element back to an interface/object

2. IUIAutomationfocusChangedEventHandler I should create myself

How can I implement/add the method HandleFocusChangedEvente so it can be called from ui automation (callbackfunction logic)

3. Register the event with something like

$objUIAutomation.AddFocusChangedEventHandler(0,$oFocusHandler) ;- Use pointer?

#include <AutoItObject.au3>
#include "CUIAutomation.au3"

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

;~ Assume to have loaded the DLL first
Global Const $hUIAutomation = DllOpen("uiautomationcore.dll")
Global $objUIAutomation  ;For creating the uiautomation instance
Global $oDesktop         ;Desktop will be frequently the starting point
Global $aCall            ;For handling the return values

Global $oError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "_ErrFunc")

;~ The main object with acces to the windows automation api 3.0
$objUIAutomation = _AutoItObject_ObjCreate($sCLSID_CUIAutomation, $sIID_IUIAutomation, $dtagIUIAutomation)
If IsObj($objUIAutomation) Then
    ConsoleWrite("At least it seems I have an object to start with" & @CRLF)
EndIf

;~ HRESULT AddFocusHandler(IUIAutomation* pAutomation)
;~ {
;~     // CFocusHandler is a class that implements IUIAutomationFocusChangedEventHandler.
;~     CFocusHandler* pFocusHandler = new CFocusHandler();
;~     if (!pFocusHandler)
;~     {
;~         return E_OUTOFMEMORY;
;~     }
;~     IUIAutomationFocusChangedEventHandler* pHandler;
;~     pFocusHandler->QueryInterface(IID_IUIAutomationFocusChangedEventHandler, (void**)&pHandler);
;~     HRESULT hr = pAutomation->AddFocusChangedEventHandler(NULL, pHandler);
;~     pFocusHandler->Release();
;~     return hr;
;~ }
;~ HRESULT HandleFocusChangedEvent(
;~   [in]  IUIAutomationElement *sender
;~ );

;~*** Approach 1 not working ***

;~ EndIf
;~ _AutoItObject_WrapperAddMethod($oIUIAutomationFocusChangedEventHandler, "hresult", "HandleFocusChangedEvent", "ptr", 1) ; function No3 in vtable of this object is
