hey, can anybody enlighten on lesser known Windows hacks or uses ?
So I thought it would be cool to use my Gravatar account to display my gravatar in a local GUI.
I use this code:
#cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: 22.214.171.124 Author: Skysnake Script Function: Example to download avatar from Gravatar and display locally #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ; Script Start ; includes #include <Crypt.au3> #include <InetConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> ; declare Global vars Global $md5GraMail = '' ; will store email for Grvatar request request GravatarLogin() GetAvatar() Func GravatarLogin() ; get the email required for downloading the Gravatar Local $sGraMail = InputBox("Get Gravatar", "What is your email registered with Gravatar?", "firstname.lastname@example.org", "", -1, -1, 0, 0) ; from http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/hash/ ; make the hash ; Local $dHash = _Crypt_HashData(GUICtrlRead($g_idInputEdit), $g_iAlgorithm) ; Create a hash of the text entered $md5GraMail = _Crypt_HashData(StringLower(StringStripWS($sGraMail, 8)), $CALG_MD5) ; lose the left two '0x' chars and convert to lower case $md5GraMail = StringLower(StringTrimLeft($md5GraMail, 2)) ; Display the result. MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sGraMail & @CRLF & "md5 " & $md5GraMail, 15) EndFunc ;==>GravatarLogin ; example from Help file: /html/functions/InetGet.htm ; Download a file in the background. ; Wait for the download to complete. Func GetAvatar() ; Save the downloaded file to the temporary folder. Local $sFilePath = _WinAPI_GetTempFileName(@TempDir) ; from http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/images/ ; <img src="https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/205e460b479e2e5b48aec07710c08d50" /> ; Download the file in the background with the selected option of 'force a reload from the remote site.' ; the next THREE options are alternatives ; Gravatar sample from here http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/images/ ; 1 ;Local $hDownload = InetGet("https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/205e460b479e2e5b48aec07710c08d50", $sFilePath, $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND) ; the normal code, should show user avatar ; 2 Local $hDownload = InetGet("https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/" & $md5GraMail & "?d=retro", $sFilePath, $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND) ; my email hardcoded, downloads, but does not show avatar ; 3 ;Local $hDownload = InetGet("https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/cac637b47c9fecc8aa1dcdf71e7a4cc8", $sFilePath, $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND) ; Wait for the download to complete by monitoring when the 2nd index value of InetGetInfo returns True. Do Sleep(250) Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADCOMPLETE) ; Retrieve the number of total bytes received and the filesize. Local $iBytesSize = InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADREAD) Local $iFileSize = FileGetSize($sFilePath) ; Close the handle returned by InetGet. InetClose($hDownload) ; Display details about the total number of bytes read and the filesize. MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The total download size: " & $iBytesSize & @CRLF & _ "The total filesize: " & $iFileSize, 1) Local $MyGravatar = @ScriptDir & "\Gravatar.jpg" FileCopy($sFilePath, $MyGravatar) MsgBox(0, "Now showing!", $MyGravatar, 5) ; make gui and show file GUICreate("My Gravatar in a GUI " & $MyGravatar, 350, 300, -1, -1, $WS_SIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered Local $idPic = GUICtrlCreatePic($MyGravatar, 50, 50, 80, 80) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ;FileDelete($MyGravatar) ; Delete the file. FileDelete($sFilePath) EndFunc ;==>GetAvatar Now, here is the issue.
If I use the example from the Gravatar site, located here:
Then this code 205e460b479e2e5b48aec07710c08d50 downloads this pic (not me)
AND it displays correctly.
However, If I download my own Gravatar, I see the image in the @Script folder, BUT IT DOES NOT DISPLAY. The same with the retro image. To be clear, this image downloads, but is not displayed.
I guess it has something to do with the format of my gravatar. Or that the display funtion GUICtrlCreatePic() does not like my gravatar.
I would be grateful if someone would be willing to test this and may offer a suggestion or two...
Tell me, please, why in the application of different styles($SS_BLACKFRAME, $SS_BLACKRECT, etc.) of frames stops working function Msg().
And why in the application of certain frame styles($SS_BLACKFRAME) do not even picture displayed?
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) Example() Func Example() GUICreate("My GUI picture", 350, 300, -1, -1) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE,"Quit") $idPic = GUICtrlCreatePic("D:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\GUI\mslogo.jpg", 50, 50, 200, 50, $SS_SUNKEN) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1,"Msg") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Loop until the user exits. While 1 WEnd EndFunc ;==>Example Func Msg() MsgBox(0,0,0) EndFunc Func Quit() Exit EndFunc
I am having a bit of trouble and was wondering if anyone may have a workaround for my issue. I made a script that would automatically install a piece of software each night on a Windows 7 Box. Now I have been instructed to do the same with a Windows 10 box since the application is now being tested on Windows 10.
The way I did the win7 installation was that I made a script and then made an executable that I call with a batch file along with the Installer. So the process is
AutoitMainFile calls batch file, batch file opens Installer, and the automatedinstaller.exe The automatedinstlaller waits 10-20 seconds to make sure the Installer has been fully loaded.
When I try to do the same both get loaded but the automatedinstallation.exe does not send commands to the installer. The code does work and nothing from the program we are wanting to install has changed as our Windows 7 runs every night no problem.
Do I need to make a new automatedinstall script for windows 10?
Any advice is appreciated
I have enabled admin sharing in the remote machine so that I can copy files to the remote machine use PSEXEC to execute our application remotely.
Now, if the machine is poweredoff we need to poweriton. So I checked whether the remote machine, it is of both VirtualBox or VMWare one. For VirtualBox or VMware, I have found command line utities to poweron. But to autologon by skipping the login screen.Can anyone suggest how to do the same.If it is a physical machine, then there is no need to poweron but autologon is required. I am trying for windows machines.Win 7 at present. For VirtualBox I checked below link with help og guestadditions but not working. http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#autologon The below procedure will save the password in that machine and it will logon automatically. http://www.howtogeek.com/112919/how-to-make-your-windows-8-computer-logon-automatically/ But it will give access to everyne.But my opinion is he should access only if have credentias.I mean through any commandline from another machine he should trigger logon also by passing credentials. Similarly this also http://www.cnet.com/how-to/automatically-log-in-to-your-windows-10-pc/ http://superuser.com/questions/28647/how-do-i-enable-automatic-logon-in-windows-7-when-im-on-a-domain http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/ht/auto-logon-windows-7.htm http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/windows7/windows7_auto_logon.htm https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ee872306.aspx Please guide me how to proceed.
