$STDOUT_CHILD is not producing any results

Recommended Posts

 

Whenever I try to run this simple command it does not work with the constants at the end. If I remove the $STDERR_CHILD and $STDOUT_CHILD, the command works but of course I can't capture the text. I've tried many ways. I have the autoconstants include declared also. I looked at other topics in the forum and many are very old but didn't seem to be this scenario. AutoIt ver 3.3.12
 

Local $get = Run(@ComSpec & " /c ipconfig","",@SW_SHOW,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

     While 1
        $sOutput = StdoutRead($get)
        If @error Then
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Stdout Read:", $sOutput)
     WEnd

#include<MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include<AutoItConstants.au3>
Local $get = Run(@ComSpec & " /c ipconfig","",@SW_SHOW,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Stdout Read:", $sOutput)
        Run("notepad.exe")
        Send($sOutput)
     WEnd

This code worked well for me.  What kind of error are you getting?

Ah, I'm stupid for not noticing that. The script wasn't giving an error at all it was running through and not outputting anything. The problem was the the msgbox. Instead of giving me an error because I didn't include MsgBoxConstants.au3 it just seem to ignore it so the script just ran and did nothing. Normally it should say their is a variable not defined. Thanks for clarity and 2nd set of eyes.

You could also do it like so:

#include<AutoItConstants.au3>

Local $get = Run(@ComSpec & " /c ipconfig","",@SW_SHOW,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

$sOutput = ""

     While ProcessExists($get)
        $sOutput &= StdoutRead($get)
     WEnd

MsgBox(0, "Stdout Read:", $sOutput)

 

The original example also kind of fails in logic, as the first msgbox is empty everytime because there is no data...yet, and then i click ok and the second has data in it because by that time $sOutput has been populated.

#include<MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include<AutoItConstants.au3>

Local $get = Run(@ComSpec & " /c ipconfig","",@SW_SHOW,$STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

     While 1
        $sOutput = StdoutRead($get)
        If @error Then
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Stdout Read:", $sOutput)
     WEnd

      back when I was still doing autohotkey you could write (in code) spanisha::á
      and whenever you were in google docs or notepad you could type (in the document) spanisha  and it instantly turns it into á 
      I tried doing this in autoit, here's what I have so far (my entire code so if this language requires a main function or a return/exit to function properly please let me know):
      ;is this a proper comment? HotKeySet ( "spanisha" , "SendAltered" ) Func SendAltered() Send("á", flag = 0); EndFunc I assume that autoit follows a sort of contemporary hotkey pressing model where you have to hold all keys at the same time? which makes this impossible. So
      I'm wondering if anyone has a workaround for this? or maybe an alternative to HotKeySet()
      I have a vague memory of someone saying that doing something like spanisha:á would work. I don't know if I'm slightly off syntax but this doesn't work.
      Also I tried doing 
      ;is this a proper comment? ;HotKeySet ( "a" , "SendAltered" ) ;spanisha::á Func SendAltered() Send("á"); EndFunc just to try and debug,
      I'm also wondering if my approach is fundamentally wrong since HotKeySet() was made for something like !^A. Or if Send() is syntactically wrong.
      I'm also noticing on these forums that specifying installation is important so to whom it may concern I downloaded both installers, editor and main files. Although I'm about to be real mad if the editor installation makes a difference.

      I have to press tab to reach a selected button then double click on that
      Here's my script but its not working:
      WinActivate("Policy Decisions -- Webpage Dialog","")
      Sleep(3000)
      Send("{TAB}")
      Send("{TAB}")
      Send("{TAB}")                    // at this point its working according to my need  but double click is not working
      Mouseclick("Left",510, 320, 2, 0)

      Hi All,
      Trying to open windows explorer to a WebDav location and it's not working quite how I want, on the computers it is setup as a "network location" (as opposed to a "mapped drive", and this unfortunately can't be changed), the "Data" WebDav folder sits directly under "This PC" if that's an easier way to get to it. any suggestions as to what I can correct to get the 2nd example to work?
      ; This works, but I'm trying to avoid this as users normally see the URL style in the 2nd example below $folderToOpen = "\\mycompany.sharepoint.com@SSL\DavWWWRoot\Data" Run("Explorer.exe " & $folderToOpen) ; This does not work, it tries to open the WebDav url in the default web browser $folderToOpen = "https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/Data" Run("Explorer.exe " & $folderToOpen) ShellExecute also opens it in the default browser.
      Saw _WinAPI_ShellOpenFolderAndSelectItems but couldn't get the 2nd example to work.
      If I manually open Windows Explorer and paste in https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/Data it loads the WebDav directory without issue.
      If I have to use the pathing from the first example it is fine, just trying to give users a familiar experience.
      Thanks!
