Are the source codes for this extension available?

How reliable is the author? 

The project is interesting especially in view of the imminent abandonment of Internet Explorer, but what guarantees are there on the genuineness of the extension?

I don't want to have bad surprises.

Chrome support for AutoIT is here!  This UDF includes a Chrome Extension (http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/getstarted.html) and Native Messaging Host (http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/m

Hmmm, odd that something is uploading.  There certainly isn't anything in this solution that uploads or downloads. Here's a description of exactly what the 3 components to the UDF do (in case anyone

Yes, it might seem odd that the registry value is escaped, though it must be this way or the native messaging host won't start.  That's my experience. Here's more information to help in troubleshoot

The latest reliable technology to automate Browsers is WebDriver.

yes I know, I have tried it but I find it much more complicated to use.

In addition, WebDriver creates problems with sites that require authentication, for example I can not use it with Youtube Studio or other sites because they see that they are automated processes.
At least this is my experience.

This has come up before. See here for one instance and an option that should allow it to work.

FWIW, I view this as a website induced problem where they are attempting to block automation. Placing the blame on Webdriver is misplaced IMO. 🙂

Maybe I expressed myself wrongly.


Of course it's not WebDriver's fault but the site blocking it.


That's why it's not a solution I can use for some projects.


That's why I wanted to try "Chrome UDF", but what security is there on the binaries that you are going to install?


No source code available? Even similar or to be improved.

Hi,

I'm trying to Install the AutoIT extension into Chrome.

 

To download the file named AutoIT for Google Chrome.crx, I click on:

               https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_6JmwNIIZ06enotRTVFNVdKOXM/edit?usp=sharing

but a message says that access is denied and asks me to REQUEST ACCESS by pressing a button.
I press it, but I get nothing.
Can someone help me?

same problem CRX_HEADER_INVALID on Step1 during extension import. Someone can help me? thanks

 

Yes I alse have same problem. 

I want to use _Chrome, not Webdriver. Because Webdriver have to open new process, not active Chrome.

Somebody could fix this please ! 😢😢😢😭😭😭

You have the same problem with me. 

I also want to use _Chrome, not _Webdriver.

Thank you Ohzxc. But how to use ? 

 

I installed file "autoit_chrome_native_messaging_host_install.exe" already. What a about Zip file ? What I have to do next ?

      This UDF can be used to draw at the Desktop Wallpaper (Windows 8+) with GDI+ without using files.
      The example runs with 60-120fps at my machine, so the speed is acceptable.
      When the script exits, the original wallpaper is restored.
      Have fun :).
      PS: The UDF uses the window between the background and the icons, so it could be used to add an own child window at the desktop. Just look at the begin of __Wallpaper_Startup ($hWorkerW).

      Wondering if you can help a teacher out.  For the last few years of remote, hybrid, and in-person teaching I've been using an AutoHotKey script that creates an inking toolbar to be used during a PowerPoint presentation.  (https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=79163) The annotation tools available through Ppt are woefully inadequate, and, on my machine at least, jump around all over the place - sometimes on the bottom, sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right.  It's a scavenger hunt every single time.  The inking tool is always available, and recent updates allowed for the addition of lots more colors, which I used for modeling phenomena with students. One tragic day I arrived to school to find that my district IT dep't took away access to AutoHotKey.  No more tool bar. 
      I've been trying to resurrect some programming skills from a past life. I'm working through various tutorials and help files, with the goal of recreating the toolbar in AutoIt.  I'm really needing some help to move things along though.  I've been going through your PowerPoint UDF and all of your functions seem to just relate to editing the slides. Can you point me in the direction of how to create a toolbar that accesses the annotation tools that are available during the slideshow itself?

      GuiFlatButton is a UDF to easily create regular buttons with different colors for background, foreground, border, hover, focus, etc..
      This started as an effort to change the background color of a button and eventually grew into a full UDF.
      If you've looked around forums for changing button background colors, you have probably noticed that each proposed workaround has its own set of issues/side-effects. The answers usually circle back to 'use ownerdrawn buttons' and 'not worth it'. Well, now it is possible for anyone to easily create ownerdrawn buttons - totally worth it!
      Some issues with other workarounds such as drawing with GDI+ or using a colored label as a 'button':
      Not 'real' buttons so you lose built-in functionality that windows gives to buttons Messy / inefficient code in the main while loop to check for mouse position Slow to respond to click, paint, etc... Having to deal with GUIRegisterMsg messages Not straight-forward to implement GuiFlatButton is not a workaround; it is a technique to respond to Windows' built-in owner-drawn button events.
      With minimal effort, we can now create true simple colored buttons.
      The idea is to create an owner-drawn button using GUICtrlCreateButton then subclass the GUI and controls to handle the button-specific events to paint it however we want.
      This UDF magically does all of this for us! No need to worry about event handling or main while loop logic.
       
      How to use
      It couldn't be any easier! Simply create a new button using the familiar syntax. This creates an ownerdrawn button with default colors.
      $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 78, 20, 120, 40) If you want to change the background and text colors:
      GuiFlatButton_SetBkColor(-1, 0x5555FF) GuiFlatButton_SetColor(-1, 0xFFFFFF) Advanced Usage
      Set background/text/border all at once
      GuiFlatButton_SetColors(-1, 0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0x9999FF) Set ALL colors for ALL button states! (normal, focus, hover, selected)
      Local $aColorsEx = [0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, -2, 0x4444FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xAAAAFF, 0x6666FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xCCCCFF, 0x0000EE, 0xFFFFFF, 0x7777EE] GuiFlatButton_SetColorsEx(-1, $aColorsEx) Set default colors to apply to any future buttons
      ;set colors GuiFlatButton_SetDefaultColors(0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0x9999FF) ;create buttons $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 12, 20, 120, 40) $mybutton2 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 2", 143, 20, 120, 40) Set ALL color defaults
      ;set colors Local $aColorsEx = [0x0000FF, 0xFFFFFF, -2, 0x4444FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xAAAAFF, 0x6666FF, 0xFFFFFF, 0xCCCCFF, 0x0000EE, 0xFFFFFF, 0x7777EE] GuiFlatButton_SetDefaultColorsEx($aColorsEx) ;create buttons $mybutton1 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 1", 12, 20, 120, 40) $mybutton2 = GuiFlatButton_Create("Button 2", 143, 20, 120, 40)
