uTorrent - Sending shortcuts to open up dialogs

Recommended Posts

FusionAura

Hi,

I am trying to programatically use Autoit to migrate uTorrent files. I need to send the key Ctrl + D to uTorrent, and then fill in a dialogue  box on the torrent location and the file location.

 

However, I am stuck after opening uTorrent and trying to send the Ctrl D Command.

This may not be the best but.

Run("C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe")
WinWaitActive("µTorrent 3.4.3  (build 40298) [32-bit]")
ControlSend("µTorrent 3.4.3  (build 40298) [32-bit]", "", "", Send("^d"))

 

That's the current code. I've tested this back with notepad to see if the code is working fine and it is, which make me struggle to understand why it wouldn't work for uTorrent. Could anybody help out please?

Hi,

uTorrent is actually written in C++, but yes, I've tried the basic Send with the WinWaitActive as per the basic example for notepad and it didn't work either :(

I JUST SOLVED IT. Haha, Thanks for your solution tho, tried it out as well to be working :)

 

I did it a different way tho, got the PID and used WinGetProcess to get the actual full title itself, my guess is the title of the program has some special characters thus the problem.

I have another problem tho....When automating the dialog box itself, the title of the dialog box is "Choose where to download 12345 torrent", because 12345 torrent is a variable, i decided to match it to Choose where to download.

 

Following your trend above, i did.

   Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
   ControlSend("Choose where to download", "", "[CLASSNN:Edit]", "C:\Users\Info\Desktop\12345")

 

But it doesn't seem to match it :(

 

Any idea how?

 

Edit, Fixed it :) 

 

Thanks!

did you know that you can run a program from within uTorrent ?

You can use the following parameters:

%F - Name of downloaded file (for single file torrents)
%D - Directory where files are saved
%N - Title of torrent
%P - Previous state of torrent
%L - Label
%T - Tracker
%M - Status message string (same as status column)
%I - hex encoded info-hash
%S - State of torrent
%K - kind of torrent (single|multi)

Where State is one of:

Error - 1
Checked - 2
Paused - 3
Super seeding - 4
Seeding - 5
Downloading - 6
Super seed [F] - 7
Seeding [F] - 8
Downloading [F] - 9
Queued seed - 10
Finished - 11
Queued - 12
Stopped - 13
Queued - 12
Preallocating - 17
Downloading Metadata - 18
Connecting to Peers - 19
Moving - 20
Flushing - 21
Need DHT - 22
Finding Peers - 23
Resolving - 24
Writing - 25

Yes I did, but that doesn't work with what I'm trying to do. I'm adding a torrent, not running a program after the torrent is completed :)

      I have a script which executes sleep for a couple of hours then carries out instructions. Does the running AutoIt script prevent the computer from entering sleep mode during this time? If not, is there something I can add to the AutoIt script to keep the computer awake?
      Grateful for advice.

      Hi all,
      I need to use ControlMove() on some controls of a hidden GUI window.
      This works properly on a GUI window created with default style, but does not work on a GUI window created with style $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW
      func GUItest($bOverlapped) $m = GUICreate("test", 200, 100, -1, -1, $bOverlapped ? $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW : -1) $g = GUICtrlCreateButton("test", 0, 0) ControlMove($m, "", $g, 30, 30) GUISetState() endfunc GuiTest(false) ; button 'test' properly moved to (30,30) GuiTest(true) ; button 'test' not moved and still sitting at (0,0) Any reason for this unexpected behavior ?
      Any workaround to fix this ?
      Thanks for any help

      Hi all..
      I'm having slight issue that has be a bit puzzled.
      I have an Input control.. After a certain function runs, it Disables that Input control, and sets it to ReadOnly.
      When running another certain function, it re-Enables that Input control, and sets the style back to Default.
      Which does work, however, when typing into the Input control after re-Enabling it, the text appears as a light gray color, rather than its original black color.
      I'm sure there's a simple solution here.. But what that is, appears to be beyond me.
      Here is a simplified example code:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 245, 215, 192, 124) Global $disableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Disable", 32, 64, 75, 25) Global $enableBTN = GUICtrlCreateButton("Enable", 128, 64, 75, 25) Global $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 32, 120, 169, 21) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $disableBTN disable() Case $enableBTN enable() EndSwitch WEnd Func disable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $ES_READONLY) EndFunc Func enable() GUICtrlSetState($Input1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetStyle($Input1, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT) EndFunc  
      Any help would be greatly appreciated
      Thank you in advance!
