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 ****

$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)

Global $setflow = 2 ; Flow

EndSwitch
WEnd

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 Community,

      I use a UDF by @smashly to play a video in a GUI. That works fine for my main monitor.
      But when I change the X and Y positions of the GUI (also for the video) to my second or third monitor, the video plays, I can hear the sound of it, but I don't see the video.

      I debugged the UDF and checked the Microsoft description for MCI Command Strings which are used in the UDF (docs.microsoft...) - everything is fine, so I got no clue why the video isn't displayed.

      PlayVideoTest.au3:
       
      VideoInGui_by_Smashky.au3 (UDF):
       
      The example video:
       
      It would be great when anyone can help .
      Is there maybe a other way to play (display videos in GUI)?

      Thanks for any suggestion - I'm grateful!

      My problem: if you move the child window at left upper corner to another place and move either H or V scrollbar the child GUI will be moved properly. BUT if you have scrolled the scrollbars to the right bottom of the image and move the child GUI to that corner, too then the child GUI jumps if you click on one of the scrollbars.
      Is there something that I didn't consider?

      Hay guys
      Just had an idea and wanted to know where to start. I want to download a screenshot of a website automatically into a .png .jpg ect format so I can then set it as my desktop background.
      This might be for for news: When the latest news is added to a website a screenshot of that website is saved and added to my desktop background.
      I have tried using website that already do the screenshot but you have to open the website and click the button for it to generate one and thus InetGet does not help.
      Any Ideas?

      Hello!
      Could someone help me please with a UDF/library/example to communicate with Arduino thru USB using V-USB Driver (HID Device).
      I want to implement remote control for PC (TV Tuner remote). Arduino would read and decode data from an IR Sensor then send the decoded data to the PC thru USB.
      Thanks! Any help much appreciated!!

      Hi All,

      MAIN QUESTION:
      Is it possible to Call specific function within a GUI

      So I have a script with multiple functions although I don't want to use every function every time.
      My Idea is to create a simple GUI which allows me to select what functions I want to use then run the funtions by clicking a button.
      I have already made a GUI which allows me to select specific .exe's I would like to run after selection it runs the .exe one by one.
      This script is on my work laptops and cannot access it right now.
       
      Who can help me with this?
      GUIcreate
      Func1 
      Func2
      Func3
      Then have a boxes which allows me to select the specif Func.(I used GUIChecked and Unchecked in my other script)
      Then a button which executes/calls the selected functions
