AutoitX.dll and GUI functions

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

The AutoItX dll only exports some parts of AutoIt functions, and it does not includes the GUI ones.

Would it be possible/easy to exports the GUI functions in AutoItX.dll?

That would be quite interesting, for instance to create some Au3=>C/C++ compiler/translator.

We use AutoIt a lot and I'm aiming at strongly reducing the size of all our .exe files, so a .dll would be great.

No. When using the dll, you are expected to use the tools provided by the host language. This include using say, the WinAPI or any of the other million toolkits for GUIs in C/C++.

Hello,

I understand your point.

However, I don't want to do GUI in C++ by calling AutoIt functions.

What I want is a way to have a working AU3 to C++ compiler, without having to write from scratch all the GUI functions needed (i.e. the runtime).

Maybe there already were discussions on AU3 to native .exe compiler?

I have contacted Jon directly through AutoIt website "contact" form, I hope he can help me on this topic.

There are no plans to convert AutoIt source to C++ officially. Several AutoIt users have done this if you search the forum though.

Jon will probably just tell you that there are no plans for this as well.

I searched on this forum but without finding any topic on AutoIt to C++, do you remember who did it and/or where to find it?

Thank you very much!

No, I haven't seen any in a while. It's really not a worthwhile venture to be honest.
