Variable keeps returning a weird value

3 posts in this topic

I'm working on a script which will run a program as another user, using RunAs

The user is prompted for their alternate login details, and the variables $username and $password are passed to RunAs.

 

Everything was working fine, until I noticed the program to be run stopped opening. An hour of debugging later, I've found the $username and $password variables are returning a static value for some reason.

No matter what the user enters, $username returns '4'

No matter what the user enters, $password returns '6'

 

I've included a small piece of the code below, and this snippet seems to be replicating the problem. I've outputted both variables to the console in this snippet.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!!

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
 
; Prompt the user for their login details
$MAIN = GUICreate("USERNAME & PASSWORD", 220, 120)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("USERNAME:", 10, 15, 65, 25)
$USERNAME = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 10, 120, 25)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("PASSWORD:", 10, 55, 65, 25)
$PASSWORD = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 50, 120, 25)
$OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 40, 85, 60, 25)
$CANCEL = GUICtrlCreateButton("CANCEL", 120, 85, 60, 25)
 
GUISetState()
While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $MSG = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $MSG = $CANCEL
        Exit
    Case $MSG = $OK
GUIDelete($MAIN)
ConsoleWrite("Username: " & $username & @CRLF & "Password: " & $password & @CRLF)
Exit
    EndSelect
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

You need to read the input & assign a variable to that.

Just for username :

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

; Prompt the user for their login details
$MAIN = GUICreate("USERNAME & PASSWORD", 220, 120)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("USERNAME:", 10, 15, 65, 25)
$USERNAME = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 10, 120, 25)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("PASSWORD:", 10, 55, 65, 25)
$PASSWORD = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 80, 50, 120, 25)
$OK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 40, 85, 60, 25)
$CANCEL = GUICtrlCreateButton("CANCEL", 120, 85, 60, 25)

GUISetState()
While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $MSG = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $MSG = $CANCEL
        Exit
    Case $MSG = $OK
        $theName = GUICtrlRead($USERNAME);>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
GUIDelete($MAIN)
ConsoleWrite("Username: " & $theName & @CRLF & "Password: " & $password & @CRLF)
Exit
    EndSelect
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

I assume better explanations to follow, but that should get you moving forward.
