Gui in a website CGI control

Recommended Posts

clarinets101

Ok, I don't know if this is even possible but some help would be greatly appreciated. I've been googling like crazy and trying different things but i'm just not getting anywhere.

I'm trying to control an arduino from an Autoit script ... over the web. I have a script that is working and i have serial communication figured out. currently the script is simple and turns a couple of relays on and off. what i'd like now is to do this from a webpage. ideally a gui interface like the one i have now would be great but i've also tried using cgi to launch a script that turns on a relay (so two links one to run a script to turn on and one to turn off) but after the script runs i get an error page. I'd like to set it up where if i can't have the gui then i can click the link run the script but stay on the same page. I hope all of this is making sense.

Here is a copy of the gui script that is working:

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=n
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
;Include the Serial UDF
#include 'CommMG.au3'
#include 
#include 
#include 
#include 
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 301, 221, 192, 124)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Circuit 2", 32, 88, 42, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Circuit 1", 32, 32, 42, 17)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("ON", 32, 56, 33, 17)
$Checkbox2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("OFF", 72, 56, 41, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
$Checkbox3 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("ON", 32, 112, 33, 17)
$Checkbox4 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("OFF", 72, 112, 41, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_CHECKED)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

;Internal for the Serial UDF
Global $sportSetError = ''

;COM Vars
Global $CMPort = 4 ; Port
Global $CmBoBaud = 9600 ; Baud
Global $CmboDataBits = 8 ; Data Bits
Global $CmBoParity = "none" ; Parity
Global $CmBoStop = 1 ; Stop
Global $setflow = 2 ; Flow

;Start up communication with the Arduino
_CommSetPort($CMPort, $sportSetError, $CmBoBaud, $CmboDataBits, $CmBoParity, $CmBoStop, $setflow)

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
_commsendstring("10" & @CR)
_commsendstring("20" & @cr)
Exit
Case $Checkbox1
guictrlsetstate($Checkbox1, $GUI_CHECKED)
GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox2, $gui_unchecked)
_CommSendstring("11" & @CR)
Case $Checkbox2
GUICtrlSetState($checkbox2, $GUI_CHECKED)
GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox1, $gui_unchecked)
_CommSendString("10" & @CR)
Case $Checkbox3
guictrlsetstate($Checkbox3, $GUI_CHECKED)
GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox4, $gui_unchecked)
_CommsendString("21" & @cr)
Case $Checkbox4
guictrlsetstate($Checkbox4, $GUI_CHECKED)
GUICtrlSetState($Checkbox3, $gui_unchecked)
_commsendstring("20" & @cr)

EndSwitch
WEnd

Thank you in advance

I'm sorry you haven't had a reply to this, and I understand things up to where you said "over the web".  Anyway, had you realised that each time you make contact with the Arduino's com port it resets the Arduino? There's a good explanation of that  is your first script holding the port, so the 2nd fails?

Ok, the script is running as written.  It launches a gui and I have an On and an Off for each relay.  If I run the script on the "web server" that has the arduino connected to it locally everything works fine.  I can turn the relays on and off without any issues. Now i need for that "gui" to run in my webpage and i'll mainly be using it locally in the house for home automation but if i can get working well internally i'll open the ports up and control things remotely.  I also have found some info on using CGI but i don't have a good understanding of it so if anyone could help with that even though this isn't that kind of forum.  I'm open to all and any suggestions.

Thanks

      Hi, everybody
      I look for GUI whose behavior similar to the message of an email client or antivirus
      In other words:
          Any PC screen able to calculate the size
          To consider the Task bar size
          To find the lower corner on the right/below and to nestle on it

      Notes:
      In GUI the GUICtrlCreateEdit field (as option) - that can be received and displayed through variable information
      Thanks a lot
      PS
      I use the translator, excuse if something is not clear

      Hi,
      I'd like to show a progress bar for an operation performed by an external program my script is running silently, I want to show it in a GUI I created using the GUICtrlCreateProgress but I have no idea how to do it.
      The important thing to point out is that there's no way of knowing how long the external program will run, as it is a file splitter and it depends on the size of file it splits and the split parts size.
      Can someone point me in the right direction or give me an example how to do so?
      This is my RunWait command:
      RunWait($MYFILES1 & '\fsplit.exe -split ' & $Size & ' mb ' & $File & " -f " & $File & "." & $extension) It uses multiple variables declared and set earlier in the script, how will I got about having the progress of that command shown using GUICtrlCreateProgress ? Is it possible?
      Thank you.

      I was playing around with simple GUI creation.  I tend to like parameter driven coding (in prior life (years ago) as Clipper/FoxPro/dBase coder).  Just wanted to see what I could do with a GUI.

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.
