Prompting in a CUI

Recommended Posts

Gui

If you wanted to, would you use PeekConsoleInput() [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms684344%28v=vs.85%29.aspx], or something else?

You'd need to enable user input into the Console App, but it doesn't work. I've tried:

$aCall = DllCall("kernel32.dll", "ptr", "CreateConsoleScreenBuffer", "dword", BitOR(0x40000000, 0x80000000), "dword", 0x00000002, "ptr", 0, "dword", 1, "ptr", 0)
    Local $hBuff = $aCall[0]
    $aCall = DllCall("kernel32.dll", "int", "SetConsoleMode", "ptr", $hBuff, "dword*", "ENABLE_WINDOW_INPUT") ; 0x0008 (ENABLE_WINDOW_INPUT)
    MsgBox(0,'', $aCall[0])

Thanks,

GUI

What exactly are you trying to accomplish because you created your 3rd thread on this but haven't really asked any clear question about what you really need?

*Sigh* Sorry for that. You can delete them if you want.

What I'm trying to accomplish is quite simple to understand. First, a Console Window is created using dllcalls & kernel32. After this, I want the user / me to be able to type into the console. This isn't the same as ConsoleWrite, etc. I mean literally as if it was a cmd. Similar to "Prompt" command with batch files. For some reason, once opened, the Console Window won't accept text/inout from keystrokes. Hopefully that's understandable.

PS: In the future, i'll keep one thread. Sorry about that.

So you need to be able to interact with a CMD window...right?

Have you seen the STDINWRITE/STDOUTREAD commands and the examples in the Helpfile?

You could still use InputBox() with a CUI script .
