GUI running as a .jpg

5 posts in this topic

Okay i got this theory where you make a script open a GUI and then make the script a .jpg and the GUI will stay open!

but so fare i haven't be able to make it work quite right..

I tried where the script didn't show the GUI but i finally got it to showing the GUI but it closes and then reopen's it self after 1sec.

This is my test GUI:

$Form1 = GUICreate("Jpg Test", 242, 156, 521, 291)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Im a .jpg!", 56, 48, 110, 36)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

And this is what i use then trying to make it a .jpg 

If (@ScriptDir) <> (@TempDir) Then
    FileCopy(@AutoItExe, @TempDir & "\test.jpg", 1)
    Run(@TempDir & "\test.jpg")
    Exit
EndIf

And im kinda out of ideas here, so anything will be helpfull.

 

Full script as it looks now:  (Note a added a big fat (Sleep) because else it will make it almost inpossible to close.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Jpg Test", 242, 156, 521, 291)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Im a .jpg!", 56, 48, 110, 36)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 20, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


If (@ScriptDir) <> (@TempDir) Then
    FileCopy(@AutoItExe, @TempDir & "\test.jpg", 1)
    Run(@TempDir & "\test.jpg")
    Exit
EndIf
(Sleep) 1000000



While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Thanks in advance!

Why are you trying to hide your script with a fake file extension?


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Im not but this is the only way i have found that will make the GUI open then it's a .jpg file.

This code:

If (@ScriptDir) <> (@TempDir) Then
    FileCopy(@AutoItExe, @TempDir & "\test.jpg", 1)
    Run(@TempDir & "\test.jpg")
    Exit
EndIf

 Was a suggestion from someone i know but it didn't work as i hoped.

That why im asking i might have gotten it completely wrong here, and hoped that someone with more knowledge could get me back on the right track again.

Run is for (EXE, BAT, COM, or PIF) use ShellExecute instead.

GraaF1337,

Hiding files under false extensions is not something we would want to support. Thread closed. :naughty:

That makes 2 out of 2 so far - please try not to make it a hat-trick. ;)
