small problem, I hope

7 posts in this topic

Hello All!

Although using AutoIt for a longer time already I am just a casual user.

Today I encountered a difference between the uncompiled and the compiled script (AutoIt v3.3.10.2). The uncompiled script works fine, the compiled one fails/does nothing. Are there wrong declarations or includes missing? I hope someone can give me hint.

The script just takes a region screenshot from a window (here it is the active one, normally I use the correct name) and saves it as a file that is named by two commandline parameters.

Thanks in advance

Norbert

#NoTrayIcon
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
If $CmdLine[0] = 0 Then Exit
$Datei = "Abb" & $CmdLine[1] & "-" & $CmdLine[2] & ".png"
;AutoItSetOption ("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
$winsize = WinGetPos("[Active]","")
$winCursor = False

; Capture region
WinSetOnTop("[Active]", "", 1)
_ScreenCapture_Capture($Datei, $winsize[0]+10, $winsize[1]+52, $winsize[0]+1200, $winsize[1]+890, $winCursor)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()
WinSetOnTop("[Active]", "", 0)

Exit

What's the command line that you run the compiled version with?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thanks for the quick answer!

The commandline is "Drive:PathScrCap.exe" 5 1 (I run it as event scriptstep in Filemaker Pro Advanced 12)

Other Scripts that I run this way are working!

I think it's the $cmdline variable - reason: when I place fixed values into the AutoIt-script there are no problems.

Try this change to your script. Recompile it and run it with the same command line as previously.
 

#NoTrayIcon
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
If $CmdLine[0] = 0 Then Exit
MsgBox(4096, "Test", "Command line 1 = " & $CmdLine[1] & @CRLF & "Command line 2 = " & $CmdLine[2])
$Datei = "Abb" & $CmdLine[1] & "-" & $CmdLine[2] & ".png"
;AutoItSetOption ("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
$winsize = WinGetPos("[Active]", "")
$winCursor = False

; Capture region
WinSetOnTop("[Active]", "", 1)
_ScreenCapture_Capture($Datei, $winsize[0] + 10, $winsize[1] + 52, $winsize[0] + 1200, $winsize[1] + 890, $winCursor)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()
WinSetOnTop("[Active]", "", 0)

Exit

Let us know what you get in the MsgBox.

You should probably specify a full path and file name when saving the file instead of using a relative path the way you're doing. At least this way you'd know where to look for it, and you can specify where it's safe to write the file to. It could be a permissions issue if you're trying to save it somewhere the script doesn't have access to write to.

yes, that was it (full path) !!!

But not the permissions since I have admin access (and both files are in the same folder).

It just seems that AutoIt treats file-writing different in compiled and uncompiled scripts.

Thanks a lot for your kind help!

Norbert
