Send value to cmd console from four input box using command button

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm very new to Autoit, and I have simple project that assigned to me.

Basically, what I would like to do is to send a date value to cmd-console from four input box (inputbox1=YYYY, inputbox2=MM, inputbox3=DD and inoutbox4=HH)and send it using button.

I can't figure on how to read the value from these inputboxs and using pushbutton it will send the value to cmd console like C:YYYY/MM/DD/HH 

I don't haven't started any code as I don't know how to start.

Appreciate your help.

Thank you.

inputbox returns strings, so no need to read just set a variable

$inputbox# = inputbox(...)

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/GUICtrlCreateButton.htm

in the example the case for the button runs notepad, in your case it should

run("cmd /k " & $inputbox1 & "/" & $inputbox2 & "/" & $inputbox3 & "/" $inputbox4)

though i dont think its going to like your forward slashes very much unless the month day and hour are arguments for Year.

Many thanks boththose.

Just a follow-up question, how to I add the code inside the button.?

below is my code created in ISN

#include-once

; -- Created with ISN Form Studio 2 for ISN AutoIt Studio -- ;
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiButton.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1",295,179,-1,-1,-1,-1)
GUICtrlCreateInput("",40,40,150,20,-1,512)
GUICtrlCreateInput("",40,70,150,20,-1,512)
GUICtrlCreateInput("",40,100,150,20,-1,512)
GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1",100,140,100,30,-1,-1)

Thank you.

There are many differences between inputbox and GuiCtrlCreateInput, you need to read the helpfile on both and decide the route that best suits you.  There is no code "inside" a button, its just a control like everything else.  You should use the helpfile example for GuiCtrlCtreateButton and work backwards, the magic happens in the case statements.

weszzer,

Instead of multiple input controls you might consider a date control.  The values are changed by selecting the value (year, day, month, hour) and using the UP/DOWN control to change them...

#include <DateTimeConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

local $gui010 = GUICreate('Date Example', 200, 100)
Local $cDate  = GUICtrlCreateDate("", 10, 10, 185, 20, $DTS_UPDOWN)
local $cbtn1  = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 10, 50, 185, 20)

; This sets how the date is displayed
GUICtrlSendMsg($cDate, $DTM_SETFORMATW, 0, "yyyy/MM/dd/HH")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        case $cbtn1
            ;
            ; do whatever you want with the date...in this case write it to the console
            ;
            ConsoleWrite('C:\' & guictrlread($cDate) & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

      Hi AutoIters!
      Here is my new UDF about GUIs: it's an enhanced mixture of Advanced InputBox (deprecated) and KODA Parser (deprecated), with additional functions.
      What you can do with it:
      Parse KODA files and directly create GUIs (_GUIUtils_CreateFromKODA) Parse a simple JSON form definition to simply create advanced InputBoxes with any amount/type of input controls (_GUIUtils_CreateFromJSON) Created GUIs are returned as Scripting.Dictionary objects, and you have helper functions to access GUIs controls by their names (_GUIUtils_HWnd, _GUIUtils_CtrlID, _GUIUtils_HCtrl ...) A function that can make a GUI created from KODA/JSON (defined by it's $oForm object) and make it a modal InputDialogBox (just like InputBox, but returns all entered data as Scripting.Dictionary object) Functions are documented, and there are some examples.
      Consider this UDF as beta, but since I'm currently using it in a small commercial project, it should become production ready in near future.
      To always get the latest code version, get it from Github (more up to date than this topic).
      Update 04/02/2020:
      New simple application example Fixed focused control handling in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Reset input values before returning from _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed CloseOnEsc in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed Input not reset Fixed all ListBox items are selected Project now on GitHub https://github.com/matwachich/autoit-guiutils/
      Update 05/02/2020:
      Support for nodate for Date and Time input controls (pass null value) New handling of focused control _GUIUtils_InputDialog: Now, you can specify the focused control in $oInitialData by setting "controlName:focus" = True Updated documentation of _GUIUtils_InputDialog Update 07/02/2020:
      Bug corrected when setting Data input control Added: abillity to read a single input control New functions (_GUIUtils_GetInputs, _GUIUtils_WriteInputs), documentation completion. Readme file and screenshots on Github Page

      I'm trying to use some inputboxes as radio buttons.
      This code seems to work ok, but don't know if there's is a better 'option'
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiConstants.au3> GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND") Global $aInput[4] $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500) $aInput[0] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 1a", 10, 10, 200, 24) $aInput[1] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 1b", 10, 40, 200, 24) $aInput[2] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 2a", 10, 80, 200, 24) $aInput[3] = GUICtrlCreateInput("Some text 2b", 10, 110, 200, 24) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd Func WM_COMMAND($hWnd, $msg, $wParam, $lParam) Local $nNotifyCode = BitShift($wParam, 16) ; high word Local $nID = BitAND($wParam, 0xFFFF) ; low word Local $hCtrl = $lParam Switch $nID Case $aInput[0] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[0], 0x98FB98) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[1], 0xD3D3D3) EndSwitch Case $aInput[1] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[0], 0xD3D3D3) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[1], 0x98FB98) EndSwitch Case $aInput[2] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[2], 0x98FB98) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[3], 0xD3D3D3) EndSwitch Case $aInput[3] Switch $nNotifyCode Case $EN_SETFOCUS GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[2], 0xD3D3D3) GUICtrlSetBkColor($aInput[3], 0x98FB98) EndSwitch EndSwitch ; Proceed the default Autoit3 internal message commands. ; You also can complete let the line out. ; !!! But only 'Return' (without any value) will not proceed ; the default Autoit3-message in the future !!! Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG EndFunc ;==>WM_COMMAND Would you recommend using _WinAPI_GetFocus instead?

      Hi guys,
      So I am trying to automate a task and this task has an input box with an already set character "9". 
      I have just decided that I don't really need the input as an option but it's good to leave however for this instance I would like it to run past this point automatically. I've tried numerous ways to try and automate the use of the "OK" button using ControlClick and various other options. I just can't seem to see where this point in the script is. Scoured the forums for anything similar but didn't have any luck finding anything. Sorry to be a pain and I hope someone can help, if I haven't explained in enough detail please don't hesitate to ask for more.
      Many thanks,
      Ackerz
       
      Local $len Local $n Local $buff Local $aMyDate $Len = InputBox("Test",$msgPrompt,"9") $len = StringStripWS($len,$STR_STRIPALL) ;Check that user has entered a vaild password length if not StringIsDigit($len) or $len = 0 Then MsgBox(48,"Error","Invaild Integer was entered" & @CRLF & "Program will now exit.") Exit EndIf ;This creates the random password. for $i = 1 to $Len ;Pick a random char between 1 and the pwsMask Length $n = int(random(1,StringLen($pwsMask))) ;Concat each char that has been picked out of pwsMask to $buff $buff = $Buff & StringMid($pwsmask,$n,1) Next
