Have i done Right? Adding UDF .. i think

Recommended Posts

Schoening

So i was in need of this custom udf Fastfind

Melba23

showed me this great article on AutoIt wiki..http://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Adding_UDFs_to_AutoIt_and_SciTE

and i think i did like it said.. mostly anyway..

I downloaded and unzipped FastFind and placed all files in a new Folder i created in the AutoIt3 Folder

The files i placed in the new Folder: <-- Named it FastFind

Benchmark.au3

FastFind.au3

FastFind.dll

FastFind_Demo.au3

FastFind.dll

I think the Benchmark and FastFind_Demo are just examples.. But i don't think they will Hurt by being in there ? They don't have any Dll to them.. and Even though i am not shure about it.. i think you need the dll to include and call the Custom Files from that folder.

Correct me if i am wrong :)

So after placing the files in the new Folder, i started SciTE --> SciTE Config --> User Include Dir: C:Program Files (x86)AutoIt3FastFind Save+Apply

So can i now #include <fastfind.au3> ? and you the build in functions?

I have not tried this yet because i dont know how to use the custom UDF "syntax?"

Hi Schoening,

You have got it almost right.

The FastFind.dll is just for the FastFind UDF, most includes/UDF's do not require a DLL.

About the User Include Dir, it does not have to be in the AutoIt directory.

That option in SciTE is there to allow you to keep your includes in a separate directory, or multiple directories, which allows you to manage them more efficient and keeps them save when updating AutoIt.

To include the UDF you should indeed just put the line at the top of your script and use the functions like you normally do.

#include <fastfind.au3>

As an aside, put #include-once at the top of the UDF (FastFind.au3), this ensures the file is only included once even if you explicitly include it more then once.

I am not familiar with the FastFind UDF so I can not help you with that.

I hoop this helps.

Certainly does :) thank you !

Should i also only #include-once if i keep using the Functions of FastFind in a infinite loop?

Schoening,

No, #include-once is a directive that is put into #include files to prevent multiple loads. Many UDFS use the more common #include files (such as WinAPI.au3, Array.au3, etc) and this directive prevent multiple loads if the script tries to load the file more than once. You do not need it in your script at all. :)

      Hello! 
      I've been checking the logging UDFs in the wiki, mostly Log4a and Loga and I wanted to ask which one would you recommend for a script that will be executed remotely through PSExec. My main question is where the logs are located in that situation and if I can change that location to a custom one., because I need to retrieve them at the end of execution.
      So in a rough description the process is
      Open PSExec
      Send compiled AutoIT script to remote machine
      Execute script
      Copy logs from the remote to the local machine.
       
      Any opinions?

      I've noticed in several YouTube tutorials about AutoIt that every time the instructor types EndFunc a comment "<==(function name)" is automatically added. I understand that Tidy will do this after the fact but what I'm writing about happens in real time. Where's the setting for this?  Thank you.

      I have loaded FastFind into my code and it takes a snapshot and creates a BMP file from it. 
      My issue is now I want to imagesearch from that BMP file (or snapshot memory) and look for a specific image from that image and get the coordinates from that. 
      I have looked at all the documentation but I cannot find anything to assist me.
       
      Does anyone have any idea?
