send String output

13 posts in this topic

What I am trying to do is take the output from $Split which should be just test and display it in $Input2. However when I open this all I get in #Input2 is 0.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <String.au3>

GuiCreate("test", 400, 400)
GuiSetState(@SW_SHOW)

Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("test.test.test", 10, 10, 100, 20)

Local $Split = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)

Local $Input2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit(GUICtrlRead($Split), 10, 50, 100, 20)


Sleep(30000)

$Split isn't a control handle. so guess it should be:

Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("test.test.test", 10, 10, 100, 20)\
Local $Split = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)
Local $Input2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit($Split, 10, 50, 100, 20)

Ok, I will change the $Split to something else, my next question is If I want to send the "output" of $Input3 ($Split) would the code be Send($Input3)?

I have tried Send($Input3) and it does not send anything.

Thanks

Not sure I understand your question, but just have a try as test ...

Post some code snippet when it doesn't work.

I know why this is failing however I am not sure how to fix it.

The reason it is failing is because in the txt file I am reading from each "line" is seperated by a | .

Here is a simple gui I created that will allow you to see what I am running into.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <String.au3>

GuiCreate("test", 400, 400)
GuiSetState(@SW_SHOW)
$list1 = Fileread("c:\test.txt")

Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "test")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
Local $Input3 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)
;~ Local $Input2 = Send($Split, 10, 50, 100, 20)

;~ Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 150, 20

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
Case $combo1
Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)
Case "Branch Servers"
GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "|" & $List1)
EndSwitch

Case $button1
Run("Notepad.exe")
Sleep(1000)
Send($Input3)
Sleep(1000)

EndSwitch
WEnd

In the test.txt file all I have is one line test.test1.test1|test1.test1.test1

Thanks

Grimm

You are not really making much sense yet with the posted snippet but tried something to see if that is what you are looking for:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

GUICreate("test", 400, 400)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$list1text = FileRead("test.txt")

Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "test")
Local $list1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
GUICtrlSetData($list1,$list1text)
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)
;~ Local $Input2 = Send($Split, 10, 50, 100, 20)

;~ Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 150, 20

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $button1
            Run("Notepad.exe")
            Sleep(1000)
            Send(GUICtrlRead($list1))
            Sleep(1000)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

grimmlock,

You really are going to have to give us more info when you post questions - at the moment it is very difficult to work out exactly what you are trying to do. ;)

Does this script act more like you want:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

GUICreate("test", 400, 400)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$list1 = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "\test.txt")

Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "test|Branch Servers")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
;Local $Input3 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12) ; Here there is nothing in the control so this variable is always empty <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Combo1
            Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)
                Case "Branch Servers"
                    ConsoleWrite("Hit" & @CRLF)
                    GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "|" & $list1)
            EndSwitch

        Case $button1
            ; Here there is perhaps some thing in the control! <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            ; But have you selected an item in the list? <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            ; Because what does GUICtrlRead do for a List control? <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            Local $Input3 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)
            ; So check here <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            If $Input3 = "" Then
                MsgBox(0,"Error", "No selection")
            Else
                Run("Notepad.exe")
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($Input3)
                Sleep(1000)
            EndIf

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Well, does it? :huh:

I tried your script but it still does not want to "send" the correct data. My apologizes if I am not making much sense. For the input I am using test.test1.test1|test1.test1.test1. The reason for this is because I have several remote locations that are only pingable by typing in the whole domain name (test.test1.test1). I can ping them just fine, however the next step is to open an app and remote into the PC's at the remote location using just the first part of their name. Test or Test1. That is why I wanted to do a split and remove all characters .test1.test1.

grimmlock,

Which is exactly what the script I posted does when I run it - I get either "test" or "test1" in the Notepad instance. ;)

Are you selecting an item in the list before pressing the button? :huh:

I modified your script because I am going to merging this with another script I am working on. In the modified script it seems to work except for $Input4 which opens Notepad however sends all the data I selected in the Input box then waits 1 sec and adds the correct entry.

So for instance when I select Branch Servers from the drop down, and select test.test1.test1 and press the button, Notepad opens then types out test.test1.test1 followed by a pause then types in correct response of test. It looks like this (test.test1.test1test)

To answer your question...I am selecting an item in the list before pressing the button

This is what I have:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <String.au3>

GUICreate("test", 400, 400)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
$list1 = FileRead("C:\test.txt") ; <<<<<< file contains test.test1.test1|test1.test1.test1
$list2 = FileRead("c:\test2.txt") ; <<<<<<<< file contains just test123

Local $Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "test|Branch Servers")
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateList("", 10, 50, 100, 50)
Local $button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Notepad", 200, 50, 100, 100)


While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

Case $Combo1
            Switch GUICtrlRead($Combo1)
Case "Branch Servers"
;~                   ConsoleWrite("Hit" & @CRLF)
                    GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "|" & $list1)
Case "test"
;~  ConsoleWrite("Hit" & @CRLF)
GUICtrlSetData($Input1, "|" & $list2)

            EndSwitch

        Case $button1
Local $Input3 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 0)
Local $Input4 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)

If $Input3 = "" Then
                MsgBox(0,"Error", "No selection")
            Else
                Run("Notepad.exe")
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($Input3)
                Sleep(1000)
EndIf

If $Input4 = "" Then
                MsgBox(0,"Error", "No selection")
            Else
                Run("Notepad.exe")
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($Input4)
                Sleep(1000)
EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Thanks

grimmlock,

when I select Branch Servers from the drop down, and select test.test1.test1 and press the button, Notepad opens then types out test.test1.test1 followed by a pause then types in correct response of test. It looks like this (test.test1.test1test)

Which is exactly what you are telling the script to do: ;)

Case $button1
    Local $Input3 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 0)  ; This will read "test.test1.test1" 
    Local $Input4 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12) ; This will read "test"

    If $Input3 = "" Then ; Was something selected?
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "No selection")
    Else
        Run("Notepad.exe")
        Sleep(1000)
        Send($Input3) ; Send the contents "test.test1.test1" to Notepad <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        Sleep(1000)
    EndIf

    If $Input4 = "" Then ; But here you check again and then.......
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "No selection")
    Else
        Run("Notepad.exe")
        Sleep(1000)
        Send($Input4) ; Send "test" to Notepad <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        Sleep(1000)
    EndIf

I think you would be better served by rearranging the code like this:

Case $button1
    Local $Input3 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 0)  ; This will read "test.test1.test1" 
    Local $Input4 = StringTrimRight($Input3, 12) ; This will read "test" - and why read the control again ;)

    If $Input3 = "" Then ; Was something selected?  Check the first input to see if there was a selection
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "No selection")
    Else
        Run("Notepad.exe")
        Sleep(1000)
        Send($Input4) ; Send the contents of the second input "test" to Notepad
        Sleep(1000)
    EndIf

It seems more logical to me but as I have mentioned many times before, unless you explain clearly what is you are trying to get as a result we are really just whistling int eh dark trying to get your code to work as you want. ;)

Thank you again M23, however it did not work the way I wanted it.

After coming back from a weekend break, I was able to put this together

Case $button1
Local $Input3 = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
Local $Input4 = StringTrimRight(GUICtrlRead($Input1), 12)

If StringInStr(GuiCtrlRead($Input1), ".local") Then
                Run("Notepad.exe")
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($Input4)
                Sleep(1000)
Else
Run("Notepad.exe")
                Sleep(1000)
                Send($Input3)
                Sleep(1000)
EndIf

Thanks

      Hello again,
      I'm trying to use the FileMove function to rename a bunch of text files.
      Some of the files have "_1" at the end of their name, for example, "File123_1.txt". I want to remove the "_1" so it would become "File123.txt".
      What I currently have...
              FileMove($sSource & "\*_1.txt", $sDestination & "\*.txt")
      But since I'm using a wildcard, it doesn't appear to be working. I think it's just replacing .txt with .txt. Am I going about this the wrong way? How can I use wildcards and still accomplish this?
      Any help is greatly appreciated ^__^

      Hi,
      I made a small blunder with my code. I created the GUI under 1920x1080 resolution however, my user is configured to ONLY 1080x720 and cannot go any further than that.
      What do you guys think is the best way to correct this one? Resolution mathematics is something that came to mind however I do not have access to his PC to check  from time to time if  my estimation is correct and the resolution on my PC doesn't go down to 1080x720.
      Please help.

      Hi, i want to read a particular string from a text file using autoit. i wish to read it without explicitly opening the text file. the copied string should be then transferred to an excelbook (again, no need to explicitly open the excel book)... 

      with reference to my screenshot attached, my input to the  'script'' is going to be 0017-0008, and the script should copy the highlighted two lines from the input file to excel
      thanks
