AutoIt and Python - Limited Functions

8 posts in this topic

I'm using Python to call AutoIt functions, but some functions don't work. Is there a reason for this? If so, can I fix it?

from win32com.client import Dispatch
Auto = Dispatch("AutoItX3.Control")
def autoTest():
    print Auto.MsgBox('')

When I run it I get this error:

line 516, in __getattr__
    raise AttributeError("%s.%s" % (self._username_, attr))
AttributeError: AutoItX3.Control.MsgBox

It seems like it's reading 'MsgBox' as an attribute and not a function. Any thoughts?

Hello everyone, I'm new here and experiencing the same problem as Ryushi, using Python to call COM automating AutoIt

But even with these parameters,

from win32com.client import Dispatch
Auto = Dispatch("AutoItX3.Control")
def autoTest():
    print Auto.MsgBox( 0, "title", "text" )

I got that error

line 516, in __getattr__
    raise AttributeError("%s.%s" % (self._username_, attr))
AttributeError: AutoItX3.Control.MsgBox

Maybe i didn't understood something clearly,

Thank you for your help !

Hello!

I face the same problem, when try to launch message box from Python:

autoIT.MsgBox(0, "Strange", "Hello!")

AttributeError: AutoItX3.Control.MsgBox

What is the solution?

Could you, please, provide it.

      im some what new to autoit and need help figuring out best way to make a simple clicker for few idle games i play(taptitdue, sakura clicker, elndless frontier etc.) ive played around with autoit recorder to make simple copy mouse clicks. but now i want to make a script that allows me to select multiple functions before starting the script for game ex: click section A or click section A + B to run At set intervals if that makes sense . i dont need scripts made by other just info on what things i should use to make it my self.

      Hello everyone,
      Finally I decide to ask hard question about one of the project which I currently maintain:
      Big World Setup aka mod installer for infinity engine games like BG, IWD, PST etc
      Project page: https://bitbucket.org/BigWorldSetup/bigworldsetup/overview
      More screenshot: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/44476/tool-big-world-setup-bws-mod-manager-for-baldurs-gate-enhanced-edition-trilogy-for-windows/p1
      General Features
      downloading mods (please see remarks!) easy mod installation correct install order of mods/components handle mod and components conflicts and auto solve them easy backup creation/restoring ability to add you own mods Internal Features (every single feature which you see here is already working in autoit)
       
      It look as simple GUI application but it has quite complicated logic regarding "handle mod and components conflicts and auto solve them" - this is most important feature of the app.
      This app needs to be converted into multi-platform GUI application because Enhanced Editions of the game can be played on OSX and Linux also. But for the past 6 years, there wasn't a single gamer/developer who would try to convert this app using multi-platform language and GUI. 
      This is the moment when I'm asking for help:
      - Which language would suit the best for multi-platform GUI application?  c#,python,java or other?
      - Is there any general approach for such conversion? 
      - Does autoit community/developer have some experience with converting autoit GUI applications into multi-platform GUI app by using multi-platform language like c#,python,java
      - Is there someone who isn't scared by looking at the source code of the application and feature list to help me with converting or even begin with creating multi-platform GUI app template which will just simply run the same commandline for every system ? 
      If there is something else which you would know, pleas ask and I will try to answer my best.

      I am having a very unique, but repeatable problem with ImageMagick COM interface. Here are the applicable lines of code:
      $oIM=ObjCreate("ImageMagickObject.MagickImage.1")
      and then later on...
      $oIM.Convert(String($arFileList[$nFileIndex])&'[0]',"-alpha", "remove",@TempDir&"\temp.jpg")
      the array points to a pdf file with the "convert" command converting the first page of the pdf to a jpg with any alpha layer removed.
      Every time, without fail, the first time I run the script on a freshly booted machine it crashes on the $oIM.Convert command. It does this if it isn't compiled and says there is an error executing the command on the object. If compiled, i get an error that autoit has stopped responding. Anytime I run the script, compiled or not, after this initial crash everything works perfectly fine.
      I am totally at a loss as to why this is occurring and how to correct it.

      Is there a way to read data directly from the Windows Component Object Model (COM) interface?
      I am trying to make a really simple disk space reporter tool for accounts on an Active Directory domain, to read the disk quota limit for the logged on user's home directory, and report how much disk space they are currently using.

      Hi All,
      I've coded the small script below, but it can't seem to get the instance of Windows Media player as it keeps going to @error, I've not used com objects before so any assistance would be appreciate. I already have WMP open and minimised. I retrieved "WMPlayerApp" from the AutoIT info tool, I've included a copy below.
      I'm using these sources:
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd564085.aspx
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd564018.aspx
      $oWMP = ObjGet("", "WMPlayerApp") If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Can't get WMP", "Couldn't connect to the WMP instance") Exit EndIf $wmpPlayState = $oWMP.playState MsgBox(0, "Play State", $wmpPlayState) $wmpSongName = $oWMP.currentMedia.name MsgBox(0, "Play State", $wmpSongName) I've also seen references to the below, but I want to get an existing open WMP:
      ObjCreate("wmplayer.OCX") and have looked at the WMP.udf but can't see how it will do either of the functions I've coded above.
