Dealing with JSON response to Twitter API

2 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Long time no post - the forum has changed a lot since I was last here! Hope you are all ok.

Anyway, the reason I'm here is because I'm writing a program that needs to post a Tweet to a Twitter account. I am using the >Twitter UDF, which I have already adapted slightly so that once a user has logged in once the username and password is not need because the OAuth token and OAuth token secret is stored and used again, rather than regenerating a them each time the program is launched. However, since the UDF was last updated Twitter has updated their API and retired the use of XML so now the response is only given in JSON.

Fortunately, to get the UDF tweeting again it was simply a case of changing the URL that the data was POSTed to. However, because IE doesn't actually render/display JSON files, whenever the data is sent a File Download dialog appears asking to download the JSON file that is returned.

Does anyone know a way around this to stop the dialog appearing, other than sending a keypress when the window is detected?

Thanks in advance

Hi ,

I have verified the modified twitter udf as explained in the below mentioned posts and it works as per the Twitter API V1.1 .

If there anything else you would want in this UDF ?

Regards

      Hello, I recently opened a bug report without reading the Helpfile... My bad . After @Melba23's gentle reminder, I was curious about why it was like that.
      It is about SetError's behaviour. This is the example from the bug report:
      Example() If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Error" & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("No Error" & @CRLF) EndIf Func Example() SetError(1) Sleep(1000) EndFunc What I tried to do is set Example's (my user defined function's) @error value to 1... but the value set by SetError is cleared after calling a function, I wonder why? Why should calling to an external function effect my function's @error which is set when my function returns.
      Setting the error of a UDF in advance by using SetError makes sense... but I cannot find a reason why calling a function should clear it? Please note that I am not talking about @error, I am talking about the @error set by my function when it ends/returns!
      I hope someone can enlighten me, thanks for the answers in advance!
      P.S I tried to explain my best but my English is not very good and I didn't feel like I did a good job explaining today, so please pardon any mistakes that I have made

      So I have been bashing my head in for a couple days and have searched both AutoIT forums and Thwack Forums for an answer.  I understand this could be hard to help sense I can't provide a server for someone to help me test against.  I am trying to use the WinHTTP.au3 to connect with Solarwinds Orion SDK thru REST/JSON api calls.  Here is the documentation that they provide.
      https://github.com/solarwinds/OrionSDK/wiki/REST
      I have been trying just to make a basic connection but for some reason cannot get past the authorization process with WinHTTP.  Here is my test code.
      #Region Includes #include <log4a.au3> #include "WinHttp.au3" #EndRegion Global $sAddress = "https://usandl0213:17778/SolarWinds/InformationService/v3/Json/Query?query=SELECT+NodeID+FROM+Orion.NODES" Global $array_URL = _WinHttpCrackUrl($sAddress) ;~ Row|Col 0 ;~ [0]|https ;~ [1]|2 ;~ [2]|usandl0213 ;~ [3]|17778 ;~ [4]| ;~ [5]| ;~ [6]|/SolarWinds/InformationService/v3/Json/Query ;~ [7]|?query=SELECT+NodeID+FROM+Orion.NODES Global $hOpen = _winhttpOpen() If @error Then _log4a_Fatal("Error intializing the usage of WinHTTP functions") Exit 1 EndIf Global $hConnect = _winhttpConnect($hOpen, $array_URL[2]) If @error Then _log4a_Fatal("Error specifying the initial target server of an HTTP request.") _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) Exit 2 EndIf Global $hRequest = _WinHttpOpenRequest($hConnect, _ "GET", _ "/SolarWinds/InformationService/v3/Json/Query?query=SELECT+NodeID+FROM+Orion.NODES", _ "HTTP/1.1") If @error Then _log4a_Fatal(MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error creating an HTTP request handle.") _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) Exit 3 EndIf _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, "Authorization: Basic YXV0b2l0X2xvZ2luOnRlc3Q=") _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, "User-Agent: curl/7.20.0 (i386-pc-win32) libcurl/7.20.0 OpenSSL/0.9.8l zlib/1.2.3") _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, "Host: usandl0213:17778") _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, "Accept: */*") _WinHttpSendRequest($hRequest) If @error Then MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error sending specified request.") Close_request() Exit 4 EndIf ; Wait for the response _WinHttpReceiveResponse($hRequest) If @error Then MsgBox(48, "Error", "Error waiting for the response from the server.") Close_request() Exit 5 EndIf Global $sChunk, $sData ; See what's returned If _WinHttpQueryDataAvailable($hRequest) Then Global $sHeader = _WinHttpQueryHeaders($hRequest) ;~ ConsoleWrite(@crlf) ConsoleWrite($sHeader & @CRLF) ; Read While 1 $sChunk = _WinHttpReadData($hRequest) If @error Then ExitLoop $sData &= $sChunk WEnd ConsoleWrite($sData & @CRLF) ; print to console Else MsgBox(48, "Error", "Site is experiencing problems.") EndIf Close_request() Func Close_request() ; Close open handles and exit _WinHttpCloseHandle($hRequest) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) EndFunc I am definitely connecting to the server but get a 401 Unauthorized response.  Output of above script:

      I am looking for a way to retrieve filtered messages from the ‘system debug channel.' also known as  ‘kernel-mode debug output.'

      AutoIt must do the capture in real time. The following AutoIt UDF almost does what is required but it only captures application level, or Win32 debug output.

      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/82889-capture-debug-information-udf/#comment-593268

      The utility DebugView by Sysinternals captures the information as required by turning on Capture Kernal and in my case using the Filter include:

      *Incoming connection*

      The use of DebugView to do this is covered in the following tech note;

      https://www.tacticalsoftware.com/support/tech-notes/logging-com-port-activity.htm

      https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/debugview.aspx

      However to make to make the information from DebugView available to my AutoIt script required DebugView capture to a text file and then my AutoIt script monitor that file for changes. The use of DebugView to capture the system debug channel could be made to work, but it was less than reliable and difficult to get started. The startup wasn’t something that could be easily automated not even with AutoIt.

      If you understood what I am talking about and made it this far, I think an explanation of the application is in order. Lots of details here sorry trying to answer questions in advance.

      I support a large installation of General Electric MUSE application. MUSE is a Windows-based medical application that processes and archives ECGs (electrocardiograms) taken on dedicated hardware (ECG Carts). Several methods exist on the cart to get the ECG from the Carts to the MUSE system; they range from floppies (on old obsolete hardware), memory cards, RS232 serial ports, and hardwired network connections.

      In our installation, we choose not to use the vendor-supplied network solution due to a variety of reasons I won’t get into here.  Instead, we have designed our own connection solution.

      We use a wireless serial server mounted on the ECG carts connecting to a server running a Serial/IP COM Port Redirector. The ECG cart and MUSE application think they are talking to each other via an RS232 port and as far as they are concerned, they are. However, this RS232 cable happens to run through our province (think State) wide Health Care WAN.  The hardware and software used can be seen on these two sites;

      http://www.bb-elec.com/Products/Wireless-Cellular/AirborneM2M-802-11-a-b-g-n-Dual-Band-Wireless/AirborneM2M-Industrial-Dual-Band-Wi-Fi-Router-Brid.aspx

      https://www.tacticalsoftware.com/virtual-serial-port-redirector/serial-ip.htm

      This setup works well we have over 130 ECG carts connecting using this setup. However, the end users are not technical, and there is a lot that can go wrong with wireless connections. So we do get complaints, often after the fact, that the ECG cart would not connect. A log of what ECG carts connected and when would be very helpful.

      The Serial redirector software can be configured to log all activity to the Kernal-mode Debug output. The serial redirector software itself being kernel level software. For configuration of the Wireless modules, we have custom written software (written in AutoIt) that amongst other things can display relevant configuration information for a Wireless module given it’s IP address.

      By extracting messages like the ones below from the Kernal-Mode Debug channel;

      COM56 : ½ Incoming connection from 10.158.188.172:51562

      COM18 : ½ Incoming connection from 10.158.188.200:50896

      COM19 : ½ Incoming connection from 10.158.188.180:59074

      COM68 : ½ Incoming connection from 142.239.15.82:34322

      We can have the module configuration program retrieve the configuration. The retrieved configuration contains more information such as the module ID number and wireless signal strength. This information is then logged to a file which is later loaded into a database. We can then query the database for connections made by a particular module within a specified time frame. The results of these Queries help us determine if the module was connected or is having problems connecting. Problems are usually indicated by poor signal strength and frequent re-connecting.

      So what I am looking for is a way for our module configuration program (written in AutoIt) to retrieve filtered Kernal-Level debug messages directly without using the DebugView application.

      The Forum post listed at the first of this message includes the source code for the DLL. So if you are versed in these matters and Visual Studio this may be an easy task. I looked at what needed to be done but, I was way over my head. If you look up the price of the serial IP redirector software, you can see that there is some money in our project for such things however, I do have a spending limit for purchases such as this.

      hI,
      Is there any UDF for Zeromq ?
      I need to communicate with a remote and local socket. Any suggestion or guidance will be very appreciated.

      Good morning everyone
      I am working on a little script, which takes some data from a SQLite DB and should create a sort of report, inserting rows in a Word Document... I arrived at the point of:
      _Word_DocTableWrite() and, I don't know how to set the range parameter? What does that specify? 
      Thanks a lot for the help
      EDIT:
      Managed to write a table in the Word document, but now I get an error when I save the document with _Word_DocSaveAs(), with error 2.
      Which are possible causes? Thanks a lot, again
      EDIT 2:
      ... And, how can I set a border to the table? Maybe, with a sort of auto-formatting for text ( larger is the text, larger is the height/width of the table's cell ).
      Thanks  
      EDIT 3 ( bug ):
      Including the parameter $WdSaveChanges in the function _Word_DocSaveAs(), a save dialog box appears, and it should not do it, as it's written in the MSDN documentation:
      wdSaveChanges -1 Save pending changes automatically without prompting the user. Thanks again for everyone will answer to me
