Index into an AutoItObject?

Recommended Posts

MarkRobbins

I want to assign to an AutoItObject property without hardcoding the property name.

In Javascript it would look like:

obj['propertyName']=103;

I can read access a property using Execute:

Global $ppt_val=Execute('$obj.propertyName')

But I cannot assign with:

Assign('obj.propertyName',103,4); doesnt work, nor...
Assign('$obj.propertyName',103,4)

Maybe AutoItObjects have a sooper-secret $obj.__set($name,$val) function?

I am looking for a workaround no matter how convoluted. Was thinking about maybe this might be feasible with a JScript COM helper, since I have built a AutoItObject ClassFactory anyhow. I would be able to create dynamic helper functions in JScript COM, that would stop me from writing:

Func Set__WinStyle($me,$name,$bool)
  If False Then
  ElseIf $name=='Border' Then
    $me.Border=$bool
  ElseIf $name=='Popup' Then
    $me.Popup=$bool
  ElseIf $name=='Caption' Then
    $me.Caption=$bool
;etc,etc,etc

JScript COM:

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

Here is how I pulled this off. First the COM lib:

; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================
; Name      : _ComObj_init
; Description  : Creates MS Windows Script control and deploy it as proxy for
;               AutoIt COM object binding.
; Syntax      : _ComObj_init([$VBScriptSupport = false])
; Parameter : $VBScriptSupport
;               By default JScript doesn't have alert() function, it is provided
;               by browser's window object.
;               We can emulate this using VBScript's MsgBox function, which is
;               performance hog because we need another ScriptControl instance.
;               Other advantage is to be able to execute other VBScript's methods
;               within function via vb.Eval() method.
;               This feature is disabled by default.
; =============================================================================
Func _ComObj_init ($VBScriptSupport = false)
  Local $_Script
  $_Script = ObjCreate("ScriptControl")
  $_Script.Language = "JScript"
  $_Script.Timeout = 60000
  $_Script.AddCode("var $=this,arrays=[],vb;function set_vbscript($) {vb=$;vb.Language='VBScript';vb.AllowUI=true;}function alert(s){if(vb)vb.Eval('MsgBox(Unescape(""'+s+'""), 0, ""Autoit"")')}function get_proxy(){return $}function new_object($){$=new Function('return{'+$+'}')();$.set=function(k, v){$[k]=v};$.unset=function(k){delete $[k]};$.set_object=function(k,$){this.set(k,new_object($))};$.set_array=function(){var v=[];for(var i=0;i<arguments.length;i++)v[i]=arguments[i];$.set(v.shift(),new_array.apply(this,v))};$.set_function=function(k,p,$){this.set(k,new_function(p,$))};return $}function new_array(){var v=[];for(var i=0;i<arguments.length;i++)v[i]=arguments[i];return v}function array_get($,k){return $[k]}function array_set($,k,v){return $[k]=v}var new_function=(function(){function F(r) {return Function.apply(this,r)}F.prototype = Function.prototype;return function(p,$){p=p.split(/\s*,\s*/);p.push($);return new F(p)}})()")
  If $VBScriptSupport = true Then $_Script.Run("set_vbscript", ObjCreate("ScriptControl"))
  Return $_Script
EndFunc

Then, in main:

Global $_ComObj_proxy
Global $_com
Global $_Js
JScriptInit()


Func JScriptInit()
  $_ComObj_proxy = _ComObj_init(true)
  $_com = $_ComObj_proxy.Run("get_proxy")
  $_Js = $_com.new_object("")
  $_Js.set_function("AIOSetProperty","o,n,v","o[n]=v;")
EndFunc

Then when you create AutoItObjects, assign these as methods:

Func SetProperty__($me,$name,$val)
  $_Js.AIOSetProperty($me,$name,$val)
EndFunc
Func GetProperty__($me,$name)
  Local $v=Execute('$me.'&$name)
  Return $v
EndFunc

The assignment would look like:

$o=_AutoItObject_Create();
;blah,blah, add your methods and fields
;;And the Two new functions...
_AutoItObject_AddMethod($o,'SetProperty','SetProperty__',$ELSCOPE_PUBLIC)
_AutoItObject_AddMethod($o,'GetProperty','GetProperty__',$ELSCOPE_PUBLIC)

And your calls would look like:

$o.SetProperty('propertyName',$some_val)
Local $v=$o.GetProperty('propertyName')

Crazy to have to COM to a different language, but there you have it. :sorcerer:

I should also make this clear that this works with PROPERTIES (and probably fields). AIO properties have this form:

_AutoItObject_AddProperty($o,"_Left",$ELSCOPE_PRIVATE,False); A private property backer (ie field), use as required
_AutoItObject_AddMethod($o,"Left","Left__ButtonStyle",True); True means public

; A property is really a function, needs $me and a second param with a default, 
; the code makes it so the default VALUE (ie False) is never used by checking @NumParams
;
Func Left__ButtonStyle($me,$value=False); ButtonStyle is the name of the class, I like to put it last, not first
  If @NumParams=2 Then ; we are assigning, hence default VALUE has been given, 
                       ; so we never see False unless it is given via $o.Left=False
    $me._Left=$value; Comment out this line for a readonly property, or put in some execute-on-assignment code
  Else ; we are being read
    Return $me._Left; return the backer, else put in some computational code that returns a value
  EndIf
EndFunc

;;; Usage
$o.Left=10    ;assign
$val=$o.Left ; read

       Hello all"
      I have curious problem with com object implementation of Sapi 5.1.
      In some cases }Some Voice engines] the metods for retrieve the voice parameters fails with error :Member not exists:.
      But the Retrieved Voice object can speak the given text, so It exists and work.
      Example of this type of Engine can be this one: http://download.kobavision.be/KobaSpeech3/KobaSpeech 3 With Vocalizer Serena - English (Great Britain).exe (can work as demo)
      So my question is> Is there some way to workaround or solve this issue?
      What i tryed:
      1. Typical use of Sapi.spvoice object:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
       
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $voice in $spvoice.getvoices()
        msgbox(0, "Voice", $voice.getdescription())
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc

      2. Implement workaround based on Nvda Screen reader sapi5 Library at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/source/synthDrivers/sapi5.py
      Thys code in Pascal should work, so i tryed to reproduce it in Autoit.
      Pascal code just as example:
                   SOTokens:=SpVoice.GetVoices('','');
                   for i:=0 to SOTokens.Count-1 do
                   try
                        SOToken:=SOTokens.Item(I); s:=SOToken.GetDescription(0);
      end
      In Autoit I tryed it like this:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $i = 0 to $spvoice.getvoices.count-1
      $name = $spvoice.getvoices.item($i).getdescription
      msgbox(0,"Voice", $name)
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc
      Both of this methods returning same Error ("Member not exists.").
      Thanks a lot for help.

      Hello,
       
      Is there a way to get all the properties and method of a COM object thru Autoit.
      I am looking in a way of display the imbricated structure of object and method.
       
      Example of COm objects are "itunes.application", "Shell.application" and so on.
      The idea is to have a code looking like
      $objtobrowse = objcreate("itunes.application") if isobj($objtobrowse) then $colItems = $objtobrowse.buildinproperty For $objItem In $colItems ConsoleWrite($objItem.<Name> & " - " & $objItem.<Value> & @CRLF) Next EndIf

      Can someone help me to go in the good direction? I'm a little lost with what's needed, (CLSID and IID whereas I have only a UUID and can't find a good starting doc online)
      Thanks a lot,

      Since W8.1 (actually IE 11 with W7 will work also) microsoft has a Javascript runtime that can be called from scripting languages
      As shown in this example from C++: https://iobservable.net/blog/2013/11/12/introduction-to-jsrt/
      By loading either JSCRIPT9.DLL or CHAKRA.DLL you can embed ECMA JavaScript in your application
      And implemented here in AutoHotKey https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5739
      Triggered by other threads:

      Hi all. 
      I am trying to do 2 things but i cannot seem to get any traction on how to read/implement this idea.
      Premise: PowerPoint file in C\temp\presentation.pptx that contains on the first slide 2 entries as "<one>" and "<two>" which need to be replaced with "user1" and "user2", then a silent Outlook send mail containing the file with a predefined body and subject.
      I narrowed it down to COM objects as the Office does not like intrusive open AutoIt functions. I installed OLE/COM Object Viewer to understand how to create the commands but i am still stuck. So far i am trying to user water's code but i suck
      COM object i was originally trying to modify
      Dim $oPPT, $oPres $oPPT = ObjCreate("PowerPoint.Application") $oPPT.Visible = True $oPres = $oPPT.Presentations.Read Water's code below (0.1% modified)
      #include <File.au3> #include "PowerPoint.au3" #include <misc.au3> Global $sFile = "C:\temp\presentation.pptx" Global $sString2Search = "<username>", $sString2Replace = "Password", $iReplaceOnce = 1, $sFullLogFile = "C:\temp\pptxlog.txt" _ProcessPpt($sFile) Func _ProcessPpt($sFile) $oApp = _PPT_PowerPointApp() Local $bChange = False Local $oInterface = $oApp.Presentations Local $oPresentation = $oInterface.Open($sFile, False, False, False) If @error Then _FileWriteLog($sFullLogFile, "E Error " & @error & " opening File " & $sFile) Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndIf ;it does not even open my file and from here not sure how to read the text and replace it EndFunc ;==>_ProcessPpt
