How do you reference a value passed to a script from another script?


Recommended Posts

Found a lot of posts on how to pass a parameter to another script. What I dont get is how to reference that value once in the second script. Let's say I have a script "main" and another called "other" where "other" is compiled. Main just was $myVar="Hello World" and then a run command to start up "Other". "Other" just accepted the $myVar value and printed it out in a msgbox. What is the simplest the scripts can be to accomplish this?

jiggypiggy,

Very simple! ;)

Create this script in SciTE and save it as Script2.au3:

MsgBox(0, "Message from Script1", $CmdLine[1])

Now create this script and save it as Script1.au2:

$sMyVar = "Hello World"
Run('AutoIt3.exe /AutoIt3ExecuteScript Script2.au3 "' & $sMyVar & '"')

Run Script1 from SciTE and you will see a "Hello World" MsgBox appear. :)

jiggypiggy,

Have you tried? :)

You have to call it like this:

Run('Script2.exe "' & $sMyVar & '"')
