Help me to convert a C code

Recommended Posts

Hello,

There is a way o someone for convert this to autoit? It's only a few lines

std::wcout << "Ready"; 
        _iconParentHwnd = FindWindow(_T("Shell_TrayWnd"), NULL); 
        _iconHwnd = FindWindowEx(_iconParentHwnd, NULL, _T("Start"), NULL); 
        LRESULT _iconHdl = SendMessage(_iconHwnd, WM_CLOSE, NULL, NULL); 
        signed int _reVal = static_cast<int>(_iconHdl); 
        if (_reVal == 0)
        {
            std::wcout << "\n\succes"; 
        }
        else
            {
                std::wcout << "\n\nFailed Error: " << GetLastError() << ")";
                std::getwchar();
            }
        }
                     endif

I have see there in autoit:

_WinAPI_FindWindow

_SendMessage

But i don't have understand that _T(), NULL i think is = "" but we don't have a function called FindWindowEx

Thanks for help to archivie this ;)

Hi,

FindWindow is WinGetHandle in autoit.

WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]")

Br, FireFox.


 

OS : Win XP SP2 (32 bits) / Win 7 SP1 (64 bits) / Win 8 (64 bits) | Autoit version: latest stable / beta.
Hardware : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10Ghz / 8 GiB RAM DDR3.

My UDFs : Skype UDF | TrayIconEx UDF | GUI Panel UDF | Excel XML UDF | Is_Pressed_UDF

My Projects : YouTube Multi-downloader | FTP Easy-UP | Lock'n | WinKill | AVICapture | Skype TM | Tap Maker | ShellNew | Scriptner | Const Replacer | FT_Pocket | Chrome theme maker

My Examples : Capture toolIP Camera | Crosshair | Draw Captured Region | Picture Screensaver | Jscreenfix | Drivetemp | Picture viewer

My Snippets : Basic TCP | Systray_GetIconIndex | Intercept End task | Winpcap various | Advanced HotKeySet | Transparent Edit control

I think it would translate to something like this but whether the logic of the code is correct I can't say.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>

$iconParentHwnd = WinGetHandle("Shell_TrayWnd");
$iconHwnd = WinGetHandle($iconParentHwnd, "start"); must not have upper case 's' if you're looking for the 'start' button?
$iconHdl = _SendMessage($iconHwnd, $WM_CLOSE);

If ($iconHdl = 0) Then
    MsgBox(262144, "Result", "Success!")
Else
    MsgBox(262144, "Result", "Failed!")
EndIf

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

Well, the code give me "Success" but not the expected result. I want to hide the orb of Windows 7. i have try many method, always failed:

ControlCommand
ControlHide
 _WinAPI_ShowWindow

There are plenty of example in C#, but i'm not very good to convert it ( and before this post i have try it, lost hours for try to do the same ) like:

Link 1 ( check the comment of Simon B. 22-Aug-12 11:34 for hide only the orb )

Link 2

The taskbar in his "totally" is easy to hide with Autoit, the orb not. Thanks guys for the help, i'll really apprecciate it :D

and... I can see in a link you provided that the orb is still visible but the taskbar is hidden.

Actually, there is an orb on the taskbar and a hover orb, you can either hide this hover orb or hide the taskbar and its orb.

Br, FireFox.

There are software can hide it:

Start Killer

and

Start Orb Mover ( P.S There are 2 exe's in Start Orb MoverAppFiles, HideIt and ShowIt and both work )

So:

If the question is: Is Possible to hide only the orb? The answer is Yes

If the question is: How? Then answer is: I don't know :D

Jocking apart, i'll continue the research but if you guys have an idea please post it

I'm guessing you don't even know if that c code works.

 

You have right, but in part. I have tested both codes and they hide completely the taskbar, but i think can be "edit" for hide only the orb, the problem is i don't know C-C# so i don't know how to start

FireFox again thank. I have tested the code and work at "half" ( P.S. Change <WinAPIEx.au3> with <WinAPI.au3> )

This line correctly hide the taskbar:

_WinAPI_ShowWindow(_WinAPI_FindWindow("shell_traywnd", ""), 1)

But this, for hide the orb, not work. Very strange:

_WinAPI_ShowWindow(_WinAPI_FindWindowEx(_WinAPI_FindWindow("Desktop", ""), 0, "Button", ""), 1)

I have try also to convert the first script using _WinAPI_FindWindowEx:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <SendMessage.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

$_iconParentHwnd = _WinAPI_FindWindow("shell_traywnd", "")
$_iconHwnd = _WinAPI_FindWindowEx($_iconParentHwnd, "", "Start", "")
$iconHdl = _SendMessage($_iconHwnd, $WM_CLOSE) ; same for _WinAPI_ShowWindow

If ($iconHdl = 0) Then
    MsgBox(262144, "Result", "Success!")
Else
    MsgBox(262144, "Result", "Failed!")
EndIf

Func _WinAPI_FindWindowEx($hParent, $hChildAfter, $sClassName, $sWindowName)
    Local $aResult = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "FindWindowEx", "hwnd", $hParent, "hwnd", $hChildAfter, "wstr", $sClassName, "wstr", $sWindowName)
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)
    Return $aResult[0]
EndFunc   ;==>_WinAPI_FindWindowEx

Result is "Success" but don't do nothing. What is the "secret"?

Other useful information:

The start "orb" in Windows Vista is actually a separate top-level window
rather than a child of the taskbar, as it needs to be shaped for its overhang
from a single-row task bar and Microsoft did not want to incur a penalty for
shaping the entire task bar.

I don't remember its details off the top of my head, but if you use Spy++
you should be able to locate it. It can be shown/hidden independently of the
rest of the task bar.

It's definitely doable -- one of our applications does it :-)

-----------------

I can't paste the code itself, but we do it like this:

1. Find the task bar itself.

2. Get the process ID of the Explorer process that owns the task bar.

3. Enumerate all top-level windows.

4. For each window, get its process ID.

5. If it is the same as Explorer's, get the window text.

6. If the window text is "Start", it's our button.

I don't know if this works on localized versions of Windows Vista.

Hopefully this is something you can adapt to your needs :-)

Enjoy,

-----------------

Instead of trying to close it, try just hiding and showing it. In our
application, it responds to ShowWindow with SW_HIDE.

The window cannot be identified by class name. You must first find the
process ID of the owner of the task bar itself (which you *can* find with a
simple FindWindow call), and then enumerate the windows and follow the
procedure I outlined to locate the other top-level windows owned by the same
process. One of those other windows is the start orb.

Damn i have do everything that post say ( our software work blablabla i can't post the code blablabla), why not work for me? :pirate:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
;~ #include <SendMessage.au3>
;~ #include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Local $Explorer_Handle, $Explorer_ID, $Start_Button, $Start_Handle

$Explorer = ProcessList("explorer.exe")
For $i = 1 To $Explorer[0][0]
    $Explorer_ID = $Explorer[$i][1]
Next

MsgBox(0, "ID", $Explorer_ID)
$Explorer_Handle = _GetHwndFromPID($Explorer_ID)
MsgBox(0, "HANDLE", $Explorer_Handle)

$Start_Button = WinList()

For $i = 1 To $Start_Button[0][0]
    If $Start_Button[$i][0] = "Start" And $Start_Button[$i][1] = $Explorer_Handle Then
        MsgBox(0, "Details", "Title=" & $Start_Button[$i][0] & @LF & "Handle=" & $Start_Button[$i][1])
        $Start_Handle = $Start_Button[$i][1]
    EndIf
Next

_WinAPI_ShowWindow($Start_Handle, @SW_HIDE)
;~ _SendMessage($Start_Handle, $WM_CLOSE)

Func _GetHwndFromPID($PID)
    $hWnd = 0
    $stPID = DllStructCreate("int")
    Do
        $winlist2 = WinList()
        For $i = 1 To $winlist2[0][0]
            If $winlist2[$i][0] <> "" Then
                DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetWindowThreadProcessId", "hwnd", $winlist2[$i][1], "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($stPID))
                If DllStructGetData($stPID, 1) = $PID Then
                    $hWnd = $winlist2[$i][1]
                    ExitLoop
                EndIf
            EndIf
        Next
        Sleep(100)
    Until $hWnd <> 0
    Return $hWnd
EndFunc   ;==>_GetHwndFromPID

      Hello friends, I have a simple question, can I have a variable that is not reset, even if my program is closed?
      That is, I want to make a program that can only be opened once, have a variable $ ini = 0, when it is opened for the first and only time it becomes $ ini = 1, so that it can not use the program a second time, as if it was a test software.
      I do not want the variable to depend on a reading of an external file that is easily manipulated. Thank you.

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.
