HowTo - Use AutoIt3Wrapper.exe?

6 posts in this topic

Hi there.

Please can somebody provide a link to instructions on how to use AutoIt3Wrapper.exe?

I am not interested in the Directives. Instead, I am looking for instruction on

  • Once downloaded, where must I save AutoIt3Wrapper.exe?
  • Can I get SciTE to use AutoIt3Wrapper.exe automatically?
    • If I choose Build or Compile from the Tools menu, can AutoIt3Wrapper.exe be invoked?
  • What command line options are available for AutoIt3Wrapper.exe?
    • Running AutoIt3Wrapper.exe /? does not provide a comprehensive list of options.
    • Reading through some of the forum posts, I found
      • /ShowGui
      • /autoit3dir "%ProgramFiles%AutoIt3"
    • What other options exist?

Thank you in advance.

If you download the full Scite4AutoIt3 you will get the full set of tools, and the help file that's included for Scite will explain the directives you can use. I realize you said you don't want the directives, but if you play with them you'll see how they're converted to command line parameters. Also, there's a script that is used to create the exe for AutoIt3Wrapper in the folder that you can examine to see what everything does.

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.

Dear BrewManNH

Thank you for your response. My response to your three points is listed below

  1. The full version is what I have got downloaded already.
  2. playing with those will only expose a limited subset of options. To quote a friend of mine, how do I know what I don't know? Playing with these will also not help when I actually want to RTFM to understand what the directives mean.
  3. Are you referring to script AutoIt3WrapperAutoIt3Wrapper.au3 ? A quick review of this script show many things happening, including auto updates & running TIDY.EXE. Do you have a line number that shows the full set of command line options available for AutoIt3Wrapper.exe?

Lastly, your post still does not explain How to configure SciTE to use AutoIt3Wrapper instead of Aut2Exe.exe

Look at the scite4autoit3 helpfile included in the installer to see all possibilities and find out the available directives autoit3wrapper uses.

These directives are also listed in directives.au3,

The installer for Scite4AutoIt3 configures that. If it's installed then simply press Tools > Compile and it will show the wrapper GUI.
