(Solved) Open Files Properties via AutoIT

25 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

Does anyone know how to open up this window via AutoIT if a specific file path is given?  I know I can send the ALT & Enter keys at once via AutoIT, just not sure how to tell AutoIT to 

Let's say the path of the file was here C:datag2mui.exe (the issue is that there will be lots of other exe files within that folder and I'm not sure how to pass the send keys directly to that specific file).

This was solved by Orbs post.

Check Run function to run the exe and then check ControlSend to send the keys to the specific window although i am pretty sure there must be some other ways to run the windows directly with the tab chosen. Help files are your friends.

I also thought this might have worked too...

#include <WinAPIShellEx.au3>

$dsFile = DllStructCreate("wstr")
DllStructSetData($dsFile, 1, @ScriptDir & "\file.ext")

$dsVerb = DllStructCreate("wstr")
DllStructSetData($dsVerb, 1, "properties")

$tSHEXINFO = DllStructCreate($tagSHELLEXECUTEINFO)

DllStructSetData($tSHEXINFO, "Show", @SW_SHOW)
DllStructSetData($tSHEXINFO, "Size", DllStructGetSize($tSHEXINFO))
DllStructSetData($tSHEXINFO, "File", DllStructGetPtr($dsFile))
DllStructSetData($tSHEXINFO, "Verb", DllStructGetPtr($dsVerb))


ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_ShellExecuteEx ( $tSHEXINFO ) & @LF)

And again it does not, and instead opens an instance of my documents folder.

indeed it is strange.

EDIT:

even if you set a wrong file full path to the file, then you get 1 as a result in console, but expected value is $SE_ERR_FNF = 2

the Properties dialog will close when the script closes. this full script works (Win7 Ultimate x64):

HotKeySet('{ESC}','_Exit')
Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

_ShowFileProperties('C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe')
While True
WEnd

Func _ShowFileProperties($sFile, $sVerb = "properties", $hWnd = 0)
    ; function by Rasim
    ; http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=78236&view=findpost&p=565547

    Local Const $SEE_MASK_INVOKEIDLIST = 0xC
    Local Const $SEE_MASK_NOCLOSEPROCESS = 0x40
    Local Const $SEE_MASK_FLAG_NO_UI = 0x400

    Local $PropBuff, $FileBuff, $SHELLEXECUTEINFO

    $PropBuff = DllStructCreate("char[256]")
    DllStructSetData($PropBuff, 1, $sVerb)

    $FileBuff = DllStructCreate("char[256]")
    DllStructSetData($FileBuff, 1, $sFile)

    $SHELLEXECUTEINFO = DllStructCreate("int cbSize;long fMask;hwnd hWnd;ptr lpVerb;ptr lpFile;ptr lpParameters;ptr lpDirectory;" & _
            "int nShow;int hInstApp;ptr lpIDList;ptr lpClass;hwnd hkeyClass;int dwHotKey;hwnd hIcon;" & _
            "hwnd hProcess")

    DllStructSetData($SHELLEXECUTEINFO, "cbSize", DllStructGetSize($SHELLEXECUTEINFO))
    DllStructSetData($SHELLEXECUTEINFO, "fMask", $SEE_MASK_INVOKEIDLIST)
    DllStructSetData($SHELLEXECUTEINFO, "hwnd", $hWnd)
    DllStructSetData($SHELLEXECUTEINFO, "lpVerb", DllStructGetPtr($PropBuff, 1))
    DllStructSetData($SHELLEXECUTEINFO, "lpFile", DllStructGetPtr($FileBuff, 1))

    $aRet = DllCall("shell32.dll", "int", "ShellExecuteEx", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($SHELLEXECUTEINFO))
    If $aRet[0] = 0 Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)

    Return $aRet[0]
EndFunc   ;==>_ShowFileProperties

EDIT: apparently this behavior is common, that's how it works with other programs. Try right-click Properties from the "Open" dialog in MS Word - when you close the "Open" dialog without selection, the "Properties" dialog also closes. why is it so, i have no idea.

It could be interesting to know what the OP wants to automate in this window. I could be done without it, no ?

 

could be, but i found myself in need just to display the Properties dialog, nothing more. so i found that. we'll just have to wait for the OP to provide some feedback.

One time I asked how to set the compatibility mode, and "DPI settings"

But I still have no idea how to do that.

Well, make your modifications in compatibility tab from the shortcut properties, and look at the registry in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlagsLayers.
