Read text file and close windows containing any of strings from each line?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi I'm looking to start a new (what I think will be simple) program. 

Basically I want to just have a text file that sits in a location, say, C:blockwindows.txt.

For AutoIt I just want it to open and begin auto-closing any windows that contain the string that is put in each line within that c:blockwindows.txt.

So the C:blockwindows.txt may contain these strings

"some string here test"

"another string here"

"yet another string".

So what AutoIt would do, is constantly be monitoring for any openings of windows on the computer that contains any of those strings, whether it's at the beginning or end or whereever in the Window title.

These windows could open up at any time of the day.

Here's what I've got so far from research, just having a challenge determining whether it's the right approach, and ultimately, figuring out how to piece it together.

- I do not know what window MatchMode to use based on the strings read from the text file to determine if the string matches that of what's in the title. I could make an exact match given that I do know what prefix and suffix comes before/after the string variable if needed. 

$FilePath = "C:blockedwindows.txt"
$FileRead = FileRead($FilePath )
$WindowName = StringSplit($FileRead , @CRLF, 1)
For $i =1 To $WindowName[0]
WinClose ($WindowName[$i])
Next
 
Something like this could work I'm just worried about CPU usage. It goes about 25% of the CPU.
But if I add a sleep(1000) after WinClose, it remains at 0% CPU.

You could add a sleep(1000) in there and it would be fine. The problem is really that you want to ProcessClose a windows if the title with more than what is in your string.

OOD:

1. Read data from C:blockwindows.txt into an array

2. Read all processes running now

3. Search for string in running processes and if there is then end the process

4. Continuously read all running processes and comparing

Why do you want to do this? You are either trying to prevent a popup or you are making malware. In the first case there are better methods to fixing the symptoms and in the second you are in the wrong forum. If I am wrong then please enlighten me.

Hi,

Thanks for that. 

Perhaps I shouldn't have tried to use a vague example, and my specific project here would have made things more clear. 

What I'm trying to do is create a phone number blocker for Microsoft Lync. I'm not familiar with the API (or any API in general) enough to make something advanced to block phone numbers and hang up on them, and as far as I know, there's no server-side feature in Lync 2010 to "block" phone numbers. 

So on the client end, I put this script together to check for when a new incoming call takes place (there is a window notification), and then it will click the "decline" button on the toast notification, thus ignoring (sort of blocking) the call.

At this point, i have the following:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase


While 1
$FilePath = "C:\blockednumbers.txt"
$FileRead = FileRead($FilePath )
$WindowName = StringSplit($FileRead , @CRLF, 1)
For $i =1 To $WindowName[0]
ControlClick("Phone Call from +1 " & $WindowName[$i],"","[CLASS:DirectUIHWND; INSTANCE:1]","",1,240,89)
sleep(500)
Next
WEnd

In C:blockednumbers.txt file, the phone numbers would have to be listed each line in this format:

(123) 123-1234

So far, this appears to work just fine. 

My concern with ending a process is that Lync communicator would close entirely and would have to be re-opened.

In my test I found that closing the window does not hang up the call. It hides the window but you continue to hear your phone ringing. By issuing a control click on the "Decline" mouse coordinates of the control, it hangs up the call. 

There doesn't appear to be anyway to click the "Decline" button outside of an x,y mouse coordinate controlclick.

You can either open the Lync Communicator program from within your script so you could manually assign a process id to it or you could just read for existing windows and get the current process id of the already open program. In my experience it is easier to open the program from within your script:

$hWnd = Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "LyncLync.exe");$hWnd is the common name that we assign a processid in the forums but it is not mandatory and the directory path is a guess.

You can have several instances of the same program in windows but each one of them has a unique process id. This is how windows manages them. You can close all processid's except the one that you want to keep alive. -> https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/ProcessClose.htm

I think that this is going to be hard to test from my end.

      Hi.
      A user have to be a member of specific groups. If the user is a member of 1 of the below groups it has to a member of "Mailuser_". If not then I need to add user to the "Mailuser_".
      But how can I search in the array. In the code I do If...then, but it will just jump to my next if...then and search in that "index". But that is not what I want. It seems that I have to do a new For...To, right? But there have to be a easier way to do this.

      Hello all! I have had some issues reading text from different types of windows, occasionally, specifically with controlgettext. 
      **Before I begin, I know there are better ways to do what I attempt in the example below. That's not the point of this post. The point is my issues with controlgettext. 
      I am about to cite an example with an application you may be familiar with called SpeedFan (v4.52). My problem is not specific to speedfan, it is simply the most recent and easily reproducible example I can think of. 
      So, the goal of the script below is to get a string of text containing the current fan RPMs from the highlighted control in the screenshot below (see "speedfan_control_details.png").

      Now, here's a simple script for grabbing the window handle and reading the text from that control: 
      $wintitle = "SpeedFan 4.52" $controlID = "197934" ;will be reformatted as "[ID:######]" $hwnd = wingethandle($wintitle) if @error<>0 then msgbox(0, "WinGetHandle", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) Exit EndIf $text = ControlGetText($hwnd, "", "[ID:"&$controlID&"]") if @error=1 then msgbox(0, "ControlGetText", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) ;failure returns "" and @error=1 Exit EndIf msgbox (0, "ControlGetText", "SUCCESS. @error="&@error &@CRLF& "$text="&$text) ;success returns string and @error=0 You'll see that the ControlGetText operation runs without error, however it does not capture any text from the control. If you explore the other controls in this one window, you'll find mixed results across the board. Neither the temps nor voltages can be read, while the log field and some other elements can be read. Even when you read the text from the whole window, those elements are not included in the visible nor hidden texts. 
       
      I have run into this issue many times in the past- inconsistencies in the ability of autoit to interact with certain controls. What is it which makes this text different than any other readable texts? Is there an alternate method of reading the text in the window/control which could work? Any and all info to help me solve this mystery and satisfy my curiosity would be greatly appreciated. 
      Thanks  -Rob C

      Hello guys,
       
      im trying to solved a problem that I have.
       
      Need to get some chinese text from an old Wise script, and in the wise file says f.e. Ù×÷ϵͳ¡£ ÇëÉý¼¶Ä. Is there any way to convert it to traditional chinese?
       
      Already tryied the following code...
       
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example() ; Define the string that will be converted later. ; NOTE: This string may show up as ?? in the help file and even in some editors. ; This example is saved as UTF-8 with BOM.

Local $dBinary = Binary(""), $sConverted = "" ; Convert the original UTF-8 string to an ANSI compatible binary string. $dBinary = StringToBinary($sString) ; Convert the ANSI compatible binary string back into a string. $sConverted = BinaryToString($dBinary) ; Display the resulsts. Note that the last two characters will appear ; as ?? since they cannot be represented in ANSI. DisplayResults($sString, $dBinary, $sConverted, "ANSI") ; Convert the original UTF-8 string to an UTF16-LE binary string. $dBinary = StringToBinary($sString, 2) ; Convert the UTF16-LE binary string back into a string. $sConverted = BinaryToString($dBinary, 2) ; Display the resulsts.

      Hi dear
      I want create retractable bar using autoit
      I tried creating slider, but there's a problem with screen reader for the blind, so is there another retractable tape?
      It is advisable to not accept dragging with the keybord only with  mouse
      note:
      This bar is needed in the process of raising and lowering the volume
      I hope that there is a solution to do that
      i waiting your responses.
      Thanks in advance to all members and administrators
