i am currently trying to add a function to my project that can send SMS, i have gone with Twilio for the sms service that use a REST API.
I have never worked with an API before, and could use some help.
I can get my function working with using cURL.exe and copy past command from the website with the following code. And thats great unfortunately i am have issue with character like æøå when sending a SMS appears like a box or ?. this does not happen if i do it from the website so it looks like a Unicode issue in curl.exe.
I have done some searching on the forum and understand that i should be able to implement this curl command with the WinHTTP UDF from @trancexx so i don't need a third part exe and it might fix my charater issue.
Unfortunately i really don't understand how i am to change curl commands to the WinHTTP and i was hoping some good maybe give me an example i could learn from.
Thanks in advanced
i have removed the AuthToken number from the script.
_SendSMS("00000000","SomeOne","SMS body info") Func _SendSMS($SendTo,$SendFrom,$Msgtxt) $AccountSID = "ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc" $AuthToken = "Auth Token number" $Data = '"https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/'&$AccountSID&'/Messages.json"'& _ '-X POST \ --data-urlencode "To=+45'&$SendTo&'" \ --data-urlencode "From='&$SendFrom&'" \ --data-urlencode "Body='&$Msgtxt&'" \ -u '&$AccountSID&':'&$AuthToken&'' ShellExecute(@ScriptDir&"\curl.exe","-k "&$Data) ;~ curl 'https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc/Messages.json' -X POST \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'To=+4500000000' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'From=Reception' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'Body=Test Body' \ ;~ -u ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc:[AuthToken] EndFunc
Some time ago, some members asked how to see the Http Requests.
There are quite a few external applications but not in AutoIt!
HttpHeaderWatcher in association with WinPcap, very modestly solves this lack.
Once done this http watcher, i asked me : why not Re-build a WinHttp Request in AutoIt from a selected Request in one Click ?
So i have added a "Create au3" button who open the WinHttp Request of your choice in AutoIt format in SciTE Editor.
Voila voila, hope it can help !
Buttons were made online with chimply.com the easy and free buttons generator !

I'm trying to get an array from a website so that I can just get the url, but I am not sure how. I read a bit of arrays but I have a feeling I'd have to be writing a lot more than what I should be. I will include the script I have so far and the API url for what I want.
API: https://api.fast.com/netflix/speedtest?https=true&token=YXNkZmFzZGxmbnNkYWZoYXNkZmhrYWxm&urlCount=1 (I want the 'url' array that contains the url)
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Inet.au3> #include <Array.au3> $site = _INetGetSource('http://api.fast.com/netflix/speedtest?https=true&token=YXNkZmFzZGxmbnNkYWZoYXNkZmhrYWxm&urlCount=1') MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", $site)
I've ported these two functions from PHP to AU3 to work with URLs.
Made them for those who work with libraries like HTTP.au3 (not the one I coded), that needs passing the server domain, path, etc., instead of the full URL.
Grab the lib here.
ParseURL( $sURL )
Parses the URL and splits it into defined parts. Returns an array:
 = Full URL (same as $sURL)  = Protocol (i.e.: http, https, ftp, ws...)  = Domain  = Port (or null if not specified)  = Path (or null if not specified)  = Query string (everything after the ? - or null if not specified) Example:
$aExample = ParseURL("https://google.com:8080/?name=doe") MsgBox(0, "Test", "URL: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Protocol: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Domain: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Port: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Path: " & $aExample & @CRLF & _ "Query string: " & $aExample)
ParseStr( $sStr )
Parses a query string (similar to the  of the previous function) and returns a multidimensional array, where:
 = number of variables found  = ununsed  = key name of the first variable  = first variable value (already URL decoded) [n] = key name of the nth variable [n] = nth variable value (already URL decoded) Example:
include <Array.au3> ; need only to do _ArrayDisplay, not needed by the lib _ArrayDisplay(ParseStr("foo=bar&test=lol%20123")) #cs Result is:  = 2  = ununsed  = foo  = bar  = test  = lol 123 #ce Feel free to fork!
I have a potential problem of memory leakage in the script I wrote and wonder if anyone will be able to suggest a potential source of the problem?
The script is desgined to log into secure website and constantly send HTTP GET request to obtain a list of tasks the client has assigned to us (the tasks are auctions, so swift actions are neccessary, hence the script) and then occasionally send HTTP POST to accept certain tasks based on certain criteria. It works 24/7 and works alright, but I noticed that amount of RAM it uses will increase significantly over time (say, it jumps from 20 000 K to 100 000 K in a few days).
I cannot post the entire script: it modestly big, also might contatin some sensetive information. But here's the main loop (like, exactly):
While True If Script_SignIn() And Script_GetTasks() Then Script_AcceptTasks() Sleep(10) WEnd The Script_ functions are here just to simplify the structure, they don't pass any parameters to each other, just return True \ False when finished and change some global variables when executed. Entire GUI is in OnEvent mode.
TMS_ functions are where the actual work is done, names are self-explanatory:
TMS_SignIn($sURL, $sUsername, $sPassword) -- returns $sAuthKeys (used subsequently in other functions to authenticate yourself, while session is active). TMS_GetTasks(ByRef $oHTTP, $sURL, $sAuthKeys) -- this function is running constantly returning $avTasks (basically a table with all information I need to accept them), I'm passing a global variable $g_oHTTP to it, it creates HTTP object only once per session (hence ByRef, I don't want to locally create HTTP object at every pass, just create once and reuse) and in next loop I pass the object the function created to it again, $g_oHTTP is destroyed when session has ended and recreated in next loop after re-login. TMS_AcceptTasks(ByRef $avTasks, $sURL, $sAuthKeys) -- returns True\False (changes $avTasks table slightly -- the status of acceptance if it's successful). TMS_SignOut($sURL, $sAuthKeys) -- returns True\False. These functions create local HTTP and HTML objects inside as well, I even "= 0" them at the end, even though I don't think I need to do this, since they are local variables. Still the problem persists.
Any ideas where to look?
