CMD commands

Recommended Posts


How can I do cmd commands in autoit and get the answer ?


I want to do the command 'ping google.com' and them I want to get the asnwer that the command line replied.


I want to get the 7ms information and store in a string variable.

I did some research and found this command 

$CMD = "ping google.com" RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

But I still dunno how to get the information 7ms.

Use the Ping command in AutoIt instead.

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.

Thanks for the reply, I didnt know autoit have ping function s:

But I found another way

Func _getDOSOutput($command)
    Local $text = '', $Pid = Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c ' & "ping google.com", '', @SW_HIDE, 2 + 4)
    While 1
            $text &= StdoutRead($Pid, False, False)
            If @error Then ExitLoop
MsgBox(0, "Tutorial", $text)
    Return StringStripWS($text, 7)
EndFunc   ;==>_getDOSOutput

Now just have to separate strings o/
