An image and notepad question?

11 posts in this topic

Is it possible when I start the script an image pops-up for 10 seconds and then disappears again.

And i have something like an installation. It opens a notepad and writes the instructions. Is it possible even he is ALT+TABbed, it still writes on that notepad?

Yes thanks to you all, but i saw i need to type location like: C:\blala\blala\dektop\img.jpg

But if someone else downloads it, then its maybe C:\abab\abab\desktop\downloads\img.jpg.

How to find the path of someone elses computer? Is there a way?

Is there a way that it writes on the notepad in the background? I mean while im surfing on internet, it will write in notepad from the background?

About the first... you have several ways to fix this. The important thing is that you provide the image in the following manners.

Using FileInstal() and giving a .exe compiled file to others.

Using Resources UDF also with a compiled file(i guess(?))

Using InetGet to get the image from the internet and you can load it in the folder you want.

This is an example using InetGet to get a JPG from the web and putting like bkground picture of the GUI

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
$image = @Scriptdir&"\test.jpg"
If not Fileexists($image) Then Inetget("http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj239/StarcraftImages/MCR.jpg",$image)
$MainGui = GUICreate("Test", 600, 400)
GUICtrlCreatePic($image, 0, 0, 600, 400)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()

    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
WEnd

About the second.. yes you can write to the notepad edit even when it is minimized.

see ControlSend() in the help file, i think the example from the help do something like that(write in the notepad).

If you want to physically write into Notepad, then you should look at ControlSend(), if you want to just write a .txt file than look at FileWrite().

You should also take the time to read aboy @ScriptDir @*Dir macros.

It is neat to see the computer type out the instructions, but it's more practical to just have it open an pre-written text file.

That's a controlclick example, but controlsend works exactly the same way.

RTFM. :mellow:

No.

Next time try it yourself BEFORE asking if it can be done. It doesn't help you learn if you're always going to come here and ask without at least trying for yourself. Also, as said before, read the help file.
