I want to listen for certain windows events like window open/closed. After reading the help I think I need to use ObjCreate('shell.application') and ObjEvent with that object to create/register a listener. The problem is I don't know what interface or events (i.e. the specific event names) are available for the listener. I tried searching MSDN but it is a labyrinth and I'm not that familiar with the programming frameworks/models used by Windows, and all the examples seem to refer to compiled code using .NET or some other api.
Can any1 point me in the right direction? Also is using COM objects considered the 'modern' way to do this, or should I be using some other framework/resources?
I want an AutoIT script to be able to open a given page, but also be able to check the HTTP status of the page and print out the status code in a message box. Looking through some of the documentation, I've found how to open a page in Internet Explorer and keep it as an object by doing this:
$IE = _IECreate($google_url)
^^^ but how would I find the HTTP status 200 from here?
My new Win10 PC has decided that I am not allowed to create OpenOffice text or spreadsheet documents, but some other stuff I never use. I would like advice on how to customize the "New" context(?) menu in the Windows Explorer "New" submenu.
I attach a screenshot.
Essentially, how do I customize that item?
i have a file containing a list of card names i want to send to internet explorer page.
while sending it misses characters in the middle of the sent text.
i decided to do a test to be sure and automate the process to detect the error, so i send the text to explorer, copy it from explorer, save it in a file then read that file and compare it to the original list using stringinstr.
here's a video of the error.
Edit: you might want to turn down the sound ^
is it a known issue? what can i do to resolve this issue?
using windows 10, US keyboard...
Basically I'm looking to make a snapshot of a whole HD's folders and files in one text file. Just the names. Preferably in alphabetical order.
Is there a function that can copy just the names without opening the files? An alternative would be to put each into rename mode and then copy the text, but that is going to be painfully slow.
