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:

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx

      Hello. Im trying to make my scripts safe - unnable to decompile. I search for obfuscators and other security methods but the search has come to nothing.
      Then one guy gave that idea below. If I rightly understood this idea lets we talk about example program with this secutiy method.
      Program have two parts, first is only login gui and the second part is the main program Second part (main program) is uploaded on ftp server lets say that on http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 So we have the first gui with login, we put correctly login and pass and this is the moment when code from http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 will be downloaded and executed Finally main program will be appear This is the similiar way like new games are protected by cracking.
      I have few questions in this moment about this:
      Is something like that even possible to do with the autoit? First part of program (login gui) must have somewhere given that link to download the rest of code - http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 to make it execute. As we know this first part of program is easy able to hack and retrieve this web url http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 where located is main part of program. Is the way to encrypt or secure it? If only code will be stored in .php we know it cannot be previewed. So it could for example get code from .php file instead of .au3 I know that methods works in other languages (I dont know exactly how) thats becouse I only speculates, maybe something may looks different in these solution? Other way would be compiling second part of code on web server (there are available web autoit servers) maybe this way is possible? Tell me anything U know about this ideas and if its even possible to achieve.
      Thanks for ur any response, advice or thoughts
