Directory of the included Include

11 posts in this topic

Hello,

I wasn't able to find an answer for my question in this forum so I post it here:

Problem:

I use the ImageSearch.au3 as include in my own Include-Directory.

I have more scripts in different folders in different folder-depths that include this file.

The problem is, that die ImageSearch.au3 uses an DLL placed in the include-Directory.

short:

ImageSearch.au3 -> D:inclImageSearch.au3

test1.au3 -> D:Dir1subdir1test1.au3

test2.au3 -> D:Dir2test2.au3

How do I get the search work?

The only idea I had is to get the Directory of the include "ImageSearch.au3".

How do I get this?

Is there another way to solve this problem?

Thank U

Bye

Would be possible.

But what do I do, if the DLL is a AU3-File?

And: Your solution wourld work, but it would not be my preferred solution.

Any other suggestions?

Thank U

OK.

But DLLOpen doesn't work with this.

DLLCall does.

All other AU3 does, too.

Hello again,

well, AU3-Files to work with this.

But not DLL-Files anyway.

Is there a way that it works?

Thank U.

How is it that you don't know where your include file is located? You can't "include" it into your script unless you know where it is, and the script has to know that as well doesn't it? So, you already have the folder the file is in, you just need to use the information you already have. 

There's no command that will tell you where the Include file is located that I'm aware of, but then as I said, there's no way for AutoIt to know where your include file is either unless you tell it. Unless you put it in the AutoIt3Include folder.


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.

AU3, as said, works.

But what about DLL.

If the AU3 file puts the DLL into the same folder as the AU3 file, then I guess I don't understand the question you're asking. You know where the AU3 file is, the folder it's in, so how do you not know where the dll file is?

If you're doing this from a compiled script, then the @ScriptDir will tell you where it's located on the drive.
