Adding a new printer, AutoIT bugs[Solved]

Recommended Posts

Akarillon

I am trying to add a printer via the network share \\winprint($OS)\$printername

But it seems like when the program gets to RegRead(to check if the printer is correctly added) it stops working and I have to exit the script by force.

The program running got to be exited via the task manager(Autoit3Wrapper.exe*32)

Really need this to work =)

$CurrentOS = 0
$Printer = 0
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
  Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
   Exit
  Case $Start
   $Printer = GUICtrlRead($Input)
   If GUICtrlRead(7) = "Windows XP" Then
    $CurrentOS = 2
   ElseIf GUICtrlRead(7) = "Windows Vista" Then
    $CurrentOS = 2
   ElseIf GUICtrlRead(7) = "Windows 7" Then
    $CurrentOS = 64
   EndIf
   _RunDOS('start \\winprint' & $CurrentOS & '\' & $Printer & '')
   RegRead('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Devices', '\\winprint' & $CurrentOS & '\' & $Printer & '')
   If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", 'Error' & @error & ' appeared.' & @CRLF & 'Please contact edb@kjemi.uio.no.')
   Else
    MsgBox(0, "Done", "Printer should have been added successfully!")
   EndIf
  Case $Exit
   Exit
EndSwitch
WEnd

Kind Regards,

no.. the line should say exactly:

\\winprint64\kj_vu18

This is an example of the printer kj_vu18 on a server that does 64bit drivers

I found the error I think.

When I go into the task manager I can end 2 processes.

And 1 is the AutoIt3Wrapper.exe*32 and the other is cmd.exe

When I ended cmd.exe before AutoIt3Wrapper.exe*32 the script finished.

So is it safe(stable) to add a ProcessEnd in the middle of the script?

I am not that good in AutoIT yet, but I still got a few hints out from your script, so mine works now =)

Thanks again!

      I am trying to print using a small font, but no mater how I try it, the printed font remains unchanged.
      I have created a sample script that sets the font to 8.
      Here are the functions I use to create, then set the font:
      Func _Printer_SetFont($hDC) Local $hFont If ($a__Printer_Font == 0) Then _Printer_MakeFont() EndIf $hFont = $a__Printer_Font _LogMsg("+++: $hDC & " & $hDC & ", $hFont = " & $hFont) _WinAPI_SetFont($hDC, $hFont) ; <===================== EndFunc ;==>_Printer_SetFont Func _Printer_MakeFont() Local $hFontDC, $err, $errm, $str, $flag, $iHeight $flag = $FW_BOLD $iHeight = 8 $hFontDC = _WinAPI_CreateFont( _ $iHeight, _ 0, _ ; average character width 0, _ ; angle of escape 0, _ ; base-line orientation $flag, _ ; font weight - $FW_NORMAL, $FW_BOLD, etc. False, _ ; italic False, _ ; underline False, _ ; strikeout $DEFAULT_CHARSET, _ ; the character set $OUT_DEFAULT_PRECIS, _ ; the output precision $CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS, _ ; the clipping precision $DEFAULT_QUALITY, _ ; the output quality 0, _ ; the pitch and family of the font "courier new") ; typeface name _LogMsg("+++: $hFontDC = 0x" & Hex($hFontDC)) If ($hFontDC <= 0) Then $str = "_WinAPI_CreateFont() failed." & @CRLF $err = _WinAPI_GetLastError() $errm = _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage() _LogMsg("+++: " & $err & ", 0) - '" & $errm & "'" & @CRLF & $str) Exit (9) EndIf $a__Printer_Font = $hFontDC EndFunc ;==>_Printer_MakeFont Here is the complete script:

      WinSetState ("[CLASS:OpusApp]", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) and WinSetState ("[CLASS:OpusApp]", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) don't maximize the window.  Using WinSetState("[CLASS:OpusApp]","",@SW_RESTORE) allows me to maximize it about 15% of the time. I've tried using  WinMove("[active]",0,0,@Desktopwidth,@Desktopheight), but that only makes it worse. I've also tried putting in a sleep and maximizing it again. Does anyone have a solution?
      Here's my code:
      The startup script is intentionally commented, because I'm not testing it right now. The other comment is just for debugging when I need it. 
       
      UPDATE: When I run two instances of the program, it works almost all the time, but if I copy the code inside the else statement twice it doesn't work at all (despite the fact that it's running the same code just in one program vs two). I also noticed that when I run two instances of it, about 50% of the time when it opens both the windows, it also hits the windows button and types the letter d into the search box. Neither of these actions are in my code. I'm not really sure what's going on.

      Am I doing something wrong?

      Hi!
      I just playing around with _ArrayMin for my next project, but seems like it's not working. I think the code is OK, but I always get the value of $aArray[2][1], not col 2's lowest value (see attached image)

      Hi all.
       
      Because of me wondering if I could access the key/value pair arrays with the numbers as indexes, I have found out that the zeroth element for some reason doesn't return anything.
      Here's the example:
       
      local $r[2] $r["test1"]="hello" $r["test2"]="how are you" msgbox(64, $r[0], $r[1]) ; prints the ["test2"] but not ["test1"]. Is this even supposed to be a thing?  
       
      BTW, I haven't seen Autoit get updated since 2015; is it abandened or something?
      Any help/clarification appreciated.
