Autoit equivalent to %1?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I need a little help... PLEASE!!!! lol..

we have a tool that runs a batch file to do a simple xcopy %1 destinationfolder

the problem is i need to add much more scripting and logging and batch files cant support. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to pickup the %1 variable from the tool, so i can process it in my script?

Thank you.. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Search the help file for $CmdLine


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.

BrewMan... Thanks..

Passing the command seems simple enough.. but can you expand a little on how to get %1 value? just putting %1 in as the parameter doesn't work.. I guess the alternative would  be to write the path to a txt file, then have my script pull the path, strip out what it doesn't need, and set that as the variable. it's just so crappy tho... lol..

Look at the "Running Scripts" entry in the help file where you will find a section on command line parameters.
