CmdLine[x] possibility

Recommended Posts

RedneckTech

Im working with the $CmdLine[x] variables and i must say bravo to whoever got them working. Was just wondering if there was a feature in there that would detect if any of the command switches passed to the exe would pass.

basically:

myscript.exe /par1 /par2 /par3

and

myscript.exe /par3 /par2 /par1

would both do the same thing. Just wondering if there is a If $CmdLine[any] = /par2 Then

That way no matter which position par2 is in the exe will stil perform the same. sorry if this is confusing. i can try to reword if necessary

RedneckTech,

I think you are going to have to loop through the array yourself: ;)

For $i = 1 To $cmdline[0]
    ConsoleWrite($cmdline[$i] & @CRLF)
    If $cmdline[$i] = "par2" Then
        MsgBox(0, "Found", "Par2")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next
If $i > $cmdline[0] Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Not found")
EndIf

yuck. thanks though. Not a dire feature, i guess the users will just have to learn to do something the right way for once :blink:

That and its probably just a sign for me to make things simple for once. Thanks!

You could do something like this:

If $cmdline[0] > 0 Then
     For $I = 1 To $cmdline[0]
          Switch $cmdline[$I]
               Case "/par1"
                    $Par1 = 1
               Case "/par2"
                    $Par2 = 1
               Case "/par3"
                    $Par3 = 1
          EndSwitch
     Next
EndIf
If $Par1 Then MsgBox(64, "", "/par1 found")
If $Par2 Then MsgBox(64, "", "/par2 found")
If $Par1 Then MsgBox(64, "", "/par3 found")

This way, you're setting a flag when it sees one of the parameters, and it won't matter in what order they're in on the command line.

Don't forget to declare the $Par# variables outside the loop, or it will error out on If ^ (when not defined inside the loop)

$Par1 = 0

$Par2 = 0

$Par3 = 0

i like what you guys have up. currently have this going (not finished) its basically just a comprehensive AV control script for update/scan just to make my life easier

If $CmdLine[0] <> 0 Then
   If $CmdLine[2] = "/full" Then
      $Full = 1
      If $CmdLine[3] = "-scan" Then
         $update = 0
      Else
         MsgBox(0,"","ERROR: Incorrect Parameter Syntax" & @CRLF & "Please consult the readme for more information")
      EndIf
   ElseIf $CmdLine[2] = "-scan" Then
      $update = 0
   Else
      MsgBox(0,"","ERROR: Incorrect Parameter Syntax" & @CRLF & "Please consult the readme for more information")
   EndIf
   If $CmdLine[1] = "ALL" Then
         _SEP()
         _MSSE()
         _AVAST()
         _MBAM()
         _Counter()
   ElseIf $CmdLine[1] = "SEP" Then
      _SEP()
   ElseIf $CmdLine[1] = "MSSE" Then
      _MSSE()
   ElseIf $CmdLine[1] = "AVAST" Then
      _AVAST()
   ElseIf $CmdLine[1] = "MBAM" Then
      _MBAM()
   Else
      MsgBox(0,"","ERROR: Incorrect Parameter Syntax" & @CRLF & "Please consult the readme for more information")
   EndIf
ElseIf $CmdLine[0] > 3 Then
   MsgBox(0,"","ERROR: Incorrect Parameter Syntax" & @CRLF & "Please consult the readme for more information")
Else
   _SEP()
   _MSSE()
   _AVAST()
   _MBAM()
   _Counter()
EndIf

any others you think i should add (norton is being added right now) and what the lines (either silent or over cmd with autoexit) for update/scan(quick and full) would be greatly appreciated!

It was an example of how to do something with the command line, but you're right I should have declared them before using them just in case someone wasn't aware of that.

EDIT: RedneckTech, I wouldn't parse the command line the way you're doing it unless you're sure that there's going to BE a $cmdline[2] or [3], otherwise you're going to crash the script with an array subscript error. The way I showed makes it a LOT easier to parse the command line, and a lot safer because you don't have to hope that every parameter is going to be used.

PS. Trend Micro has already told me that "there are no supported command lines for controlling our titanium product" and i havent been able to find any, so if you know them it would be GREATLY appreciated, especially because there are like 6 different versions of trend AV and they all function differently apparently. Makin my life a nightmare

Maybe this could be what you want

#include <Array.au3>
Dim $params = _ArrayToString($CmdLine, @TAB, 1)

If StringInStr($params,"/par2") Then
MsgBox(0, "BINGO", "Found '/par2'")
EndIf

If StringInStr($params,"/par1") Then
MsgBox(0, "BINGO", "Found '/par1'")
EndIf

If StringInStr($params,"/par3") Then
MsgBox(0, "BINGO", "Found '/par3'")
EndIf
