StdoutRead for external program doesn*t work!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

i hope my english knowledge is great enough to tell you my problems with stdoutRead.

I have created a GUI which should make the work easier with a gameserver which popups in a CMD Window. I dont really know if it's really a CMD which has a output pipe because all code i tested to read the stdout doesnt work.

are there limitations to StdoutRead with AutoIT?

Here a list what happens:

1. Starting the Server with my GUI. No Output in CMD -> No Output in my EDIT Field.



2. When i close my GUI, but dont close the server. -> restart my gui -> and start the server twice. this happens for some milliseconds



That is the reason i think my code is good.

When the server starts twice it shows an error. which says. Cannot bind on port. of course not.


stdout only give info when stderr has info. but i want that it gives me info when there are no errors :D Anybody out there who can help me?

This is the server sourcecode:


This is my code:

$pid = Run("authserver.exe", "" ,@SW_SHOW, $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD)
Local $text, $text2

    While 1
            $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
            Switch $nMsg
                Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Case $btEnd
            $text = StdoutRead($pid);
            $text2 = StderrRead($pid);
            IF Not StringCompare($text, GUICtrlRead($editAuth)) = 0 Then
                GUICtrlSetData($editAuth, $text)
            IF Not StringCompare($text2, GUICtrlRead($editWorld)) = 0 Then
                GUICtrlSetData($editWorld, $text2)

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing interaction with game servers - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked. :naughty:

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
