new to autoit, need minor assistance

7 posts in this topic

I have been trying to figure this out for over an hour now and i cant seem to do it(first time)

What i want is to be able to press the "." key and it run the script.

When the script runs i want it to switch from current window to cmd prompt window, once its there i want it to enter "netstat -n" and then press enter.

and then sleep for 5 seconds.

Heres what i have so far, and its not working right

WinActivate("C:wINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CMD.EXE")
WinWaitActive("C:wINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CMD.EXE")

While True
Send("netstat -n")
Sleep(5000)
WEnd

Things i cant figure out:

- how to run the script when i press the "." key

- how to make it press the enter key after entering the "netstat -n"

if anyone could help me with this i would be extremely appreciative, i tried googling it but it didnt help me out any.

thanks!

Okay, since you've spent an hour looking already, you won't mind looking a bit longer if I point you in the right direction.

Two functions; HotKeySet and ShellExecute will do what you need :)

where am i looking?

am i just googling it?

He means the AutoIt help file. It even has example scripts to get you started. It is an incredible document that has everything you need to figure it out.

This thread made me roll with laughter. "C:wINDOWSSYSTEM32CMD.EXE" could be "C:\Windows\System32\CMD.EXE". Stop lying that you searched for hours, trying to figure out... You were not searching, but were scratching your head. :guitar:

MKISH,

Please try to remain courteous on the forum - accusing someone outright of "lying" is not a pleasant thing to do. An apology might be in order. ;)

Apologies to the OP if I sound rude, seriously, but still... they should be able to point out such minor errors.
