AutoIt program to write to a ProLite sign

5 posts in this topic

I wrote a little program using AutoIt to write to a ProLite LED sign from a Windows command line. Works great. Downloadable, with AutoIt source code, here:

(There's a couple of other utilities there too).

Feel free to let me know any suggestions or comments.

if you haven't already, you should post this in the 'Scripts and Scraps' forum rather than the support forum if it's not something you need help with...

I just wanted to comment on your utilities. I noticed you 'escaped' the < > symbols with ^'s.

To do this better use the:

HTML Code. (Of course dont forget to put your tag inbetween :))

I may be wrong but if you are referring to this line:

ECHO ^<ID01^>^<PA^> whatever message > COM1

then I believe that this is actual code to be typed at a command prompt to get the job done. The carets tell DOS not to interpret the following angled bracket as an I/O redirector, which means that the angled bracket is sent as-is to COM1.

This is a useful trick that I had never seen before -- I wonder if it also works on Win9x systems...

Yes you guessed correctly. That is the line I was speaking of. I thought he meant he did it to escape them in the post :)

That is also a trick I am happy to learn. I didnt know this.
