Data from array not being inserted in command.

7 posts in this topic

I am having a problem getting the data (printer names) from my array to show up in the RunWait command.  The data is read from an .ini file and used to create check-boxes.  In a later function (_PrinterInstall) it should be read again and used in the RunWait command to install the network printer.  When the command runs, the place where the printer name would be is blank.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Opt("GuiOnEventMode",1)

Global $CompanyName = IniRead("settings.ini","CompanyName","name","")
Global $GUIheight = IniRead("settings.ini","WindowSize","height","400")
Global $GUIwidth = IniRead("settings.ini","WindowSize","width","500")
Global $printserver = IniRead("settings.ini","ServerSettings", "PrintServer", "Not Found")

Global $Printers = IniRead("settings.ini","Printers","PrinterList","NotFound")
Global $printarr = StringSplit ($Printers, ",")
Global $iPrinternumber = UBound($printarr) - 1
Global $box[$printarr[0] + 1]
Global $hService

Global $iTop = 0, $iLeft =(.1 * $GUIwidth)

GUICreate($CompanyName & " Printer Installer", $GUIwidth, $GUIheight)
;GUISetBkColor(0x33ccff)


GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_CLOSEClicked")

$Title = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Select the Printers to be Installed", (.3 * $GUIwidth), 15, 300)
GUICtrlSetFont($Title, 11,400,2)

For $i = 1 To $iPrinternumber 
     
     If $iTop >= ($GUIheight - 100) Then
        
        $iLeft = (.6 * $GUIwidth)
        $iTop = 0
     Else
     EndIf


   $box[$i]= GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($printarr[$i], $iLeft, $iTop + 40)
     
     $iTop = $iTop + 20
  Next

$InstallButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Install Selected", .1 * $GUIwidth, $GUIheight - 50, 150)
$ExitButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", .6 * $GUIwidth, $GUIheight -50, 150)

GUIctrlSetOnEvent($InstallButton, "_PrinterInstall")
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($ExitButton, "_CLOSEClicked")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
   Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _CLOSEClicked ()
   Exit
EndFunc

Func _PrinterInstall ()
   
SplashTextOn("", "Installing printer, please wait...", 150, 75)  


For $i = 1 To $iPrinternumber

   If GUICtrlRead($box[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
         
      RunWait(@SystemDir & "\RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /in /q /u /n\\" & $printserver & "\" & $printarr[$i])
      
      GUICtrlSetState($box[$i], $GUI_UNCHECKED)
   Else
      
   EndIf
   
     
  next
  
  SplashOff()
  
  MsgBox(0,"Done","Printer instlation complete")

EndFunc

The contents of the .ini file I am using

This is what I get in your RunWait command line.


C:Windowssystem32RUNDLL32 PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry /in /q /u /nad1 PRT_PT_HPG

Isn't that what you're getting?

Where is your ini file when you're running the script? What do you get inside $printarr after reading it? Have you done any troubleshooting of the script to figure out where it's going wrong?

The .ini file is in the same directory the script is being run from.  I do get the correct printer name in $printarr,  I used this code to check it before and after the RunWait command, MsgBox(0,"test",$printarr[$i]).  However it does not seem to work IN the RunWait command and I am unsure why.

It's working fine for me as written, so I can't see why it wouldn't work for you as well.

Well it is good to know I did not make any programming mistakes.  I guess I will have to continue to troubleshoot and see if I can find the issue.  Thanks for the second look and your time.
