Fill in file name in save file diailog box

7 posts in this topic

I'm writing my first AU3 script and need a little help with a file save diaglog. I'm calling IE to load an .JPG file via my script (that is working properly). I then attempt to save the image using the SEND function. It works up until I attempt to fill in the file name. I read the file name from a source file (image_001.jpg). I have the file in a variable ($picture). How do I script this so that it fills in the name and send the ALT+s key? Also I would like to be able to handle the duplicate file name diaglog box handling (not a big issue).

TIA.

sorce code would be nice, look at the helpfile's send funcion if you want to send something using the alt key i think you would have to use the ! key

If you have the Au3Info use ControlSend() OR look at the IE Functions.

I was just reading the help info for controls and figured it would lead me to how to send a $string to the save as diaglog.

I didn't thing it would be necesary to include the "send( "keys", [flag] ). I have reviewed the helpfile's send function. I'm looking for a way to send a dynamic string as "keys". I can send a static string just fine.

hi hobie,

Simply drop a variable into the Send() function like:

$myKeys="abc"
Send($myKeys)

You may also want to have a look at InetGet() in the help-file for downloading files with ease.

Hope this helps :)

smartee,

I was using the form "Send(&picture)". Just noticed the "ampersand" character instead of the "dollar sign" character. Now it runs as expected. Thanks for confirming.
