Script problems with GUI interface

Recommended Posts


I'm working on a little program to update some info in the unattend xml file for doing Win7 installs. It's fairly simple, a pop up window prompts for the computer name, and the username, password for the account to add it to the domain. If the fields aren't blank it reads the current sysprep file and replaces the temporary text with the user input. If the fields are left blank it is supposed to just throw up an error window and exit. Right now my If statement is failing to acknowledge that there is any input in the fields so it's always dropping to the error window. I had it working earlier today but after trying to make some further adjustments to the script it stopped working.

I can't figure out why it's not working. I'm getting values returned for the variables but it's saying I'm not. I'd like to figure out what I messed up. Also one other thing I'd like is if some of the fields are left blank i'd like it to leave the primary window open for the user to complete the form instead of just exiting.

I'm sure there's a cleaner way of doing this but I'm new.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
$Sysprep = "C:\Windows\Panther\unattend.xml"
Global $sIni = "c:\temp\TAG.ini"
$wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
$wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$colItems = ""
$strComputer = "localhost"
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery ("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystemProduct", "WQL", $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=c:\users\whalmich\desktop\scripts\koda\forms\updatexmlinput.kxf
$Form1_1 = GUICreate("Add to Domain Info", 576, 404, 209, 138)
$PCName = GUICtrlCreateInput(IniRead($sIni, 'HW Info', 'Service Tag', ''), 256, 144, 121, 21)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter Computer Name", 112, 144, 108, 17)
$User = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 256, 184, 121, 21)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter Username", 112, 184, 80, 17)
$Password = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 256, 224, 121, 21, 0x0020)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter Password", 112, 224, 78, 17)
$okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 272, 336, 75, 25)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
  Case $okbutton
  If  GUICtrlRead($PCName) = 0 or GUICtrlRead($User) = 0 or GUICtrlRead($Password) = 0 Then
    $Flag = 0
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "You must supply a Computer Name, User Name and Password")
     $Flag = 1
    While $Flag = 1
   If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
    $Text = FileRead($Sysprep,FileGetSize($Sysprep))
    $Text = StringReplace($Text, "%ComputerName%", GUICtrlRead($PCname))
    $Text = StringReplace($Text, "%UserName%", GUICtrlRead($User))
    $Text = StringReplace($Text, "%Password%", GUICtrlRead($Password))

Well that was simple. I don't understand why it worked the first time with the 0s though. And yea I didn't think that If line was necessary. Something left over from the script I copied the file edit code from.

Thanks much appreciated.
