Recommended Posts

Hi, im trying to write a simple script to have a user enter an I.P. address and return the host name in a message box. im getting "unbalanced paranthesis expression" at this location of the script below. $HostName = (@ComSpec & " /c " & "nbtstat -a " & $IP,<

please help.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$IP=InputBox("I.P. to Hostname", "Please enter the I.P. to lookup", "","", -1, -1, 0, 0)

$HostName = (@ComSpec & " /c " & "nbtstat -a " & $IP, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

MsgBox(4096,"HostName","The Host name is" & $HostName)

This might be more what you're looking to do.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>


$IP=InputBox("I.P. to Hostname", "Please enter the I.P. to lookup", "","", -1, -1, 0, 0)
Run (@ComSpec & " /c " & "nbtstat -a " & $IP & " > " & @DesktopDir & "\Test.txt", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
$HostName= FileRead(@DesktopDir & "\Test.txt")
MsgBox(4096,"HostName","The Host name is" & $HostName)

You were trying to run a program and its command line in your script without actually using the Run command. The way I have written it, it will run the command and pipe it's output to a text file on your desktop, then the next line will read the contents of that file into the $Hostname variable and then displays that variable in the MsgBox.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
