help to Identify a Specific Client Application, take screen capture, save the jpeg file to UNC locationBy vargheseg
I am new to AutoIT but I do use Sikuli. Decided to use AutoIT for this project as all the required can be created in an .exe file, does not need Java like Sikuli.
Also which can be pushed to tool bar of Windows 10 desktop.
Our users will interact with a client/server application and normally work on dual screen. The script needs to detect the c/s application from the dual screen, needs to do three mouse clicks based of image/pixel comparison, will need to wait till the click object is available and then finally take screen capture of the top 40 rows and save the .jpeg file to windows file share location.
once the file save is completed, pop up message - the screen capture is completed. Then the users can do their regular work.
Potentially other factor that will play are the screen resolution.
Can anyone guide me to some relevant scripts already in the forum. In the meantime I am learning the basics of the tool.
Appreciate feedback and any help
ICU - Icon Configuration Utility
Current Version: v6 (2018-Sep-16)
Restore your desktop when the icons get "rearranged".
Melba23 and I found we were working on very similar ideas to restore the Desktop icons to their normal place if they became "rearranged" (
). Vista seems to like this doing on occasion just for fun - but we all know some apps and games which change the display resolution or move icons around. This annoys "tidy" people who like their desktops arranged "just so" - I am particularly thinking of this desktop when I say that!
We combined efforts and here is the result of our labors.
Operation is easy - press "Save" to store a particular configuration and "Restore" to reset the icons to the saved positions in the selected configuration file. "Delete" allows you to remove unwanted configuration files from the list. There is a command line option so that the restoration can be run via HotKeys if required (that is why the script warns that it should be compiled for full functionality). You can decide what to do with any icons that have been added since you last saved the configuration file - the default is to put them in the top-left corner, but you can also banish them way off-screen or, more sensibly, specify a location for them.
A new feature as of ICU v3.4 is the optional Desktop Contextmenu Integration (DCI) for Win7 (Win7 only because Microsoft implemented an easy way to do this through the registry as of this release).
Version 3.3 should fix the empty save file bug
Version 3.4 Win7: Admin rights no longer needed for DCI
Version 5.0 Win8 compatibility for DCI
The source and executable can be downloaded from my site: http://www.funk.eu
Kudos to Ascend4nt, Melba23, Prog@ndy, & Valik for parts of the code.
Please let me know if you found some piece of code in the source for which I forgot to mention a credit.
Enjoy, let me know what you think of ICU and with Best Regards
Hey, I have a problem I tried to look for it but it didn't solve the problem, I can't add an icon to the exe, I already know there were such topics I tried to all add exclusion C: \ Users \ Marcin \ AppData \ Local \ AutoIt v3 \ aut472.tm.exe to antivirus but after compilation, the name of the file changes, I uninstalled the anti-virus, but it didn't works, except that when I add the example icons from AutoIT it works, I downloaded icons using Firefox Developer Edition also don't works, just the downloaded graphics don't works also. Is there any solution to this problem?
Needed a way to store global temporary & permanent information and came up with this.
This is inspired by NodeJS's store and store2 packages, as well as W3 specs' localStorage and sessionStorage, offering multiple ways of usage.
This is not related to any browser's storage, nor will allow you to access or modify browsers storage - although this is possible and not a hard task, this is not what this UDF is intended to do.
This UDF offers functions for temporary storage (that gets cleaned up once the application is shutdown) that is kept on memory using ScriptingDictionary, as well as for permanent storage, that is saved on the harddisk as an encrypted file.
sessionStorage (temporary storage)
It's useful to keep application state and temporary settings accessible by any part of your script (although it could also be done with a global variable, I still prefer this method).
You have multiple ways, at your choice, to:
; add or modify a key sessionStorage("foo", "bar") store("foo", "bar") sessionStorage_set("foo", "bar") sessionStorage_setItem("foo", "bar") ; read a key (returns false if key does not exist) $read = sessionStorage("foo") $read = store("foo") $read = sessionStorage_get("foo") $read = sessionStorage_getItem("foo") ; delete a key sessionStorage_remove("foo") ; delete all keys sessionStorage_clear() sessionStorage_clearAll() localStorage (permanent storage)
It's useful to store user-defined settings.
; initialize ; this is optional, but allows you to control ; how things are going to be saved localStorage_startup([file where you want the settings to be saved], [crypt password]) ; by default, if not supplied, if supplied the "Default" keyword (or if you dont initialize), ; the file will be a random-named file (based on @ScriptFullPath) at user's %APPDATA% ; and the password will also be based on @ScriptFullPath ; you can set only the crypt password if you want: ; localStorage_startup(Default, "mypassword") ; the usage is the same as sessionStorage ; add or modify a key localStorage("foo", "bar") store2("foo", "bar") ; notice the '2' localStorage_set("foo", "bar") localStorage_setItem("foo", "bar") ; read a key (returns false if key does not exist) $read = localStorage("foo") $read = store2("foo") $read = localStorage_get("foo") $read = localStorage_getItem("foo") ; delete a key localStorage_remove("foo") ; delete all keys localStorage_clear() localStorage_clearAll() Download
I have learned how to use TraySetIcon icon and toggle between icons that I added as resources using
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Icon_Add=C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Icons\au3.ico My current work around is
Doit() Func Doit() Local $TestIcon = @ScriptDir&"\Test.ico" Local $ProdIcon = @ScriptDir&"\Prod.ico" Local $Test = "Test" Local $Prod = "Prod" Local $Current = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\My Program","Location") If $Current = $Prod Then FileCreateShortcut($Test,@DesktopCommonDir&"\TestLink.lnky",Default,Default,"Test Link",$TestIcon) RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\My Program",$Test) Else FileCreateShortcut($Test,@DesktopCommonDir&"\TestLink.lnky",Default,Default,"Test Link",$ProdIcon) RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\My Program",$Prod) EndIf EndFunc I did a bit of quick cutting, from my working program. Basically it creates an link on the desktop, and then deletes it and creates a new one each time it is run. If you where wondering, I made it a .lnky file so that I could add a custom right click menu for it.
This example came from a something I am using to switch between prod and test environments, so the actual link created does not launch the script. You can right-click on the link and run the script to change environments. The icon lets me know at a glance which environment I am currently set for.
What I am trying to figure out is if there is a way to change the icon of the executable of the script only using the resources compiled within that script. What would be nice would be to have a ScriptSetIcon function.
