How to use a string variable inside of a cmd script?

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am new to autoit, this is my first programming language. As a starter i want to create a script with an inputbox asking the user what the preferred SSID of a network that your trying to connect to; declairing the input as a variable to be used in a cmd script. But cant figure out how to call the variable within the cmd script. So far i have compiled this with no success. I also checked the help file with examples inclding the return values, which have me confused. This is what i have so far.

$answer = InputBox ( "Start Program", "This process will restart your Wireless Network Connection and start Program. Please Enter the SSID of the Wireless Network", "Type SSID Here", "", _ - 1, -1, 0, 0 )
If $answer == 1 Then
Run ('C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe' & " /c " & 'netsh wlan disconnect interface="Wireless Network Connection"', "", @SW_HIDE)
Sleep ( 2000 )
Run ('C:\Program Files (x86)\program.exe')
Sleep ( 10000 )
Run ('C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe' & " /c " & 'netsh wlan connect name='$answer' ssid='$answer' interface="Wireless Network Connection"', "", @SW_HIDE)
ElseIf $answer == 2 Then
ProcessClose("program.exe")EndIf

How should i go about the first "if" statement?I want the string of what the user put into the inputbox to run inside my cmd "netsh wlan connect" script.Also if i were to exicute the script without '$answer' inside my cmd script. The program's windows will be in the top left hand side of the screen. I wanted to get it centered. But Any help is appriciated!

InputBox returns a string, so change your if to:

If $answer Then
or try to follow thru the Helpfile example again. Take a look at these Tutorials in the Wiki too. Welcome to the Forum.

I Figured it out :sorcerer: Check it out:

$answer = InputBox ( "Starting Program", "This process will disconnect your wireless network connection and prompt you to enter your connection name.", "", " M" )
If @Error == 0 Then
Run ('C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd.exe' & " /c " & 'netsh wlan disconnect interface="Wireless Network Connection"', "", @SW_HIDE)
Sleep ( 2000 )
Run ('C:\Program Files (x86)\Program\program.exe')
Sleep ( 10000 )
Run ( @ComSpec & " /c " & "netsh wlan connect " & $answer )
ElseIf @Error == 1 Then
ProcessClose("Program.exe")
EndIf

Here the WLAN_Restart.cmd script solution:

@echo off & SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
echo:&echo:Restart WLAN&echo:&echo:Select SSID to connect or "C" to cancel&echo:&set C=C
for /F "usebackq tokens=1,2* delims=:" %%i in (`netsh wlan show networks`) do (set /A L=!L!+1 & if "!L!" == "2" (set I=%%j)
set t=%%i&if "!t:~0,4!" == "SSID" (set /A N=!N!+1&set C=!C!!N!
set SSID!N!=%%j&echo:%%i = %%j))
echo:&Choice /C %C% /N > NUL 2>&1
if .%Errorlevel%.==.1. (echo:WLAN NOT changed.&goto:eof)
set /A X=%Errorlevel%-1
set SSID=!SSID%X%:~1!&echo:SSID=!SSID!&echo:
netsh wlan connect name="%SSID%" ssid="%SSID%" I="%I:~1,-1%"

Even the CMD language is powerful :thumbsup:

      How can I get combobox value by using  the ENTER key?
    • vyperhand
      By vyperhand
      I'm struggling to launch a VBS file via autoit using RunWait.  Due to the nature of the deployment tool I am using for said script, I only know that the .vbs files will be in the same directory as my AutoIt-generated .exe, but not what that path will be.  The path will look something like this:
      c:\programdata\vendor\lots\of\folders\randomnumber
      This is generated during deployment and I have no way of predicting the path - therefore, I am not sure how to call back to "same directory" in order to successfully launch the .vbs.
      This line is as close as I have gotten - this fires off the cmd window, but it closes immediately with out information, and the .vbs is not launched.
      RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c" & 'cscript.exe WORKPLEASE.vbs ALL /Q /NoCancel') I thought /c might be the problem, but leaving out the /c element causes me not to even see the momentary CMD window flash by.  Any help will be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.

      I have a ComboBox and I want, when I start writting in it, that it will show me what is the first in the list.
      Like, is I start writting:
      "pe" it  should show me "peter" if that is the first in the list.
      How can I do that?
