Using User Input

13 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am new to AutoIt, but have been scouring several searches to find a solution for how to have users input an e-mail address and then use it later, something like a Send command.

Here is my code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Global $Form1 = GUICreate("E-mail Address", 263, 75, 192, 124)
Global $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 8, 8, 241, 21)
Global $Ok = GUICtrlCreateButton("Ok", 8, 32, 241, 33)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
         Case $Input1
            ;BlockInput(1)
            WinActivate ( "Lightroom" )
            Sleep(1000)
            Send("^+E")
            Sleep(1000)
            Send("{ENTER}")
            ControlClick ( "Microsoft Outlook - 1 Photo", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]" )
            Sleep(1000)
            GUICtrlRead($Input1)
            ;BlockInput(0)

    EndSwitch
WEnd
 

At the line: GUICtrlRead($Input1), why doesn't the input I provided when I tested get utilized?

Forgive me if I'm missing something simple here....

It's not utilized because you don't make it do anything other than read from the input control, you have no code that takes what's in the control and uses it somewhere, you're just reading from it. Also, using $input1 as a GUI message trigger is a very bad idea, you should create a button that you have to press AFTER you've put something into the input control and use that to do something in your script.

BTW, if you're trying to use Outlook with your script, there's an Outlook UDF that will help with that that would eliminate the ControlClicks and Sends you're using now.


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.

MikahS,

your last post only contains quotes of the last two posts.

Is this intended or is something wrong with my browser or the forum?
