Using the AutoIt PowerShell Cmdlets

Recommended Posts

This is a quick start guide to using the AutoIt PowerShell Cmdlets. The best bits of AutoIt directly from PowerShell :) 

The files you need are as follows (get them from the zip file or the Program Files folder after installation):

  • AutoItX.psd1
  • AutoItX3.PowerShell.dll
  • AutoItX3.Assembly.dll
  • AutoItX3.dll
  • AutoItX3_x64.dll

To use the Cmdlets open a PowerShell cmd prompt and enter:

Import-Module .\AutoItX.psd1

 

Now you can get a list of available AutoIt Cmdlets by doing Get-Command *AU3*:

PS> Get-Command *AU3*

I’ll show how to use the Cmdlets using a simple example that will open notepad.exe and modify the edit window by setting the text and simulating some keystrokes. First create a blank PowerShell script called notepad_example.ps1 in the same folder as the AutoItX components above and open it for editing.

Now we want to import the PowerShell module which is AutoItX.psd1. Enter the following in the script:

Import-Module .\AutoItX.psd1

 

We want to run notepad.exe:

Invoke-AU3Run -Program notepad.exe

 

After notepad opens we want to wait for the notepad “Untitled -Notepad” window to appear. You might need to change the title for non-English versions of Windows:

$notepadTitle = "Untitled - Notepad"
Wait-AU3Win -Title $notepadTitle
$winHandle = Get-AU3WinHandle -Title $notepadTitle

 

Get-AU3WinHandle returns a native Win32 handle to the notepad window. We can use this handle in many other AutoIt functions and it uniquely identifies the window which is much more reliable than constantly using a windows title. If you have obtained a window handle using any other Win32 function you can use it with AutoIt.

After obtaining the handle to the notepad window we want to ensure that the window is active and then get a handle to the Edit Control. Using the AU3Info.exe tool that comes with AutoIt we can find that the name of the edit control in notepad is Edit1.

Show-AU3WinActivate -WinHandle $winHandle
$controlHandle = Get-AU3ControlHandle -WinHandle $winhandle -Control "Edit1"

 

Now that we have a handle to the edit control we can set text in two ways: Directly (Set-AU3Controltext) or with simulated keystrokes (Send-AU3ControlKey):

Set-AU3ControlText -ControlHandle $controlHandle -NewText "Hello! This is being controlled by AutoIt and PowerShell!" -WinHandle $winHandle
Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}simulate key strokes - line 1" -WinHandle $winHandle

Now let’s see what the entire script looks like:

# Import the AutoIt PowerShell module
Import-Module .\AutoItX.psd1

# Run notepad.exe
Invoke-AU3Run -Program notepad.exe

# Wait for an untitled notepad window and get the handle
$notepadTitle = "Untitled - Notepad"
Wait-AU3Win -Title $notepadTitle
$winHandle = Get-AU3WinHandle -Title $notepadTitle

# Activate the window
Show-AU3WinActivate -WinHandle $winHandle

# Get the handle of the notepad text control for reliable operations
$controlHandle = Get-AU3ControlHandle -WinHandle $winhandle -Control "Edit1"

# Change the edit control
Set-AU3ControlText -ControlHandle $controlHandle -NewText "Hello! This is being controlled by AutoIt and PowerShell!" -WinHandle $winHandle

# Send some keystrokes to the edit control
Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}simulate key strokes - line 1" -WinHandle $winHandle
Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}simulate key strokes - line 2" -WinHandle $winHandle
Send-AU3ControlKey -ControlHandle $controlHandle -Key "{ENTER}{ENTER}" -WinHandle $winHandle

 

This is how the notepad window should look if everything is working correctly:

Could we have examples for each commandlets in autoitx.

Example : get-help autoit-commandlet -full 

If that provides examples it would really help to incorporate faster.could not find any other resources in internet also.

Agreed.  The environment in which I work pretty much classifies any AutoIT script I write as a virus and quarantines it immediately, forcing me to use powershell.  Initially I thought I was just stupid (and/or lazy for disregarding the trial/error approach) for having difficulty in determining the autoit function that each powershell function was related to :P, but seeing as I am not the first to request that information be included with the module, I feel less stupid.  Please do include at least the autoit function that corresponds to the given powershell function in the autoit powershell module.  That would be greeeaaaattttt.

      Below are some functions that I created when I needed to get some Group Policy information via script.  The quickest way I found to get this information was using the Group Policy Module for PowerShell.  This is not a full UDF for the Group Policy Module.  There are a lot more options available with the cmdlets, and this only touches on a few.  To use the functions below, for a Windows client, you will need to install Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).  For Windows Server 2012 or later, you will need to install the Group Policy Management Console.  
      Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT)
      Installing the Group Policy Management Console via PowerShell for Windows Server 2012 or later.  Run in an Admin PowerShell prompt.
      Install-WindowsFeature –Name GPMC PowerShell Group Policy Module Documentation
      For the example below, the AD UDF is only required to query GPO names, but is not required to use the functions.  
      #include <AD.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> Global $sLDAPFilter = "(name=*)" Global $sExcludeFilter = "" Global $sIncludeFilter = "" Global $sBaseDN = "DC=ad,DC=university,DC=edu" Global $sDataToRetrieve = "sAMAccountName" $sIncludeFilter = "(&(displayName=LIBS-*))" ;GPO Names. $sLDAPFilter = "(&(objectClass=groupPolicyContainer)" & $sExcludeFilter & $sIncludeFilter & ")" $sDataToRetrieve = "displayName,name" _AD_Open() Global $aGPONames = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($sBaseDN, $sLDAPFilter, 2, $sDataToRetrieve) If @error Then MsgBox(64, "Active Directory Functions", "No objects found") Exit _AD_Close() EndIf _AD_Close() ;Add column headers to the output array.

      I see couple of ways to import module ,  one with specifying absolute path of the file to get imported, by this logic i believe to import a specific module will be like #include <c:\modulepath\duplicatemodule.au3>
      but i see some registry changes also made in this link , can someone explain why that registry change is really required.

      1.  Local $iPID = RunAs($sUserName, @ComputerName, $sPassword, $RUN_LOGON_NOPROFILE, "c:\Exec.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)
      2.  RunWait("C:\Automation\TestScripts\Writefilter.exe", @WindowsDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE)     - Std out error
       
      This command gives out put as running with admin rights
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #RequireAdmin Example() Func Example()     ; Change the username and password to the appropriate values for your system.     Local $sUserName = "Admin"     Local $sPassword = "PASSWORD"     Local $iPID = RunAs($sUserName, @ComputerName, $sPassword, 0, "noetpad.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)     ; Run Notepad with the window maximized. Notepad is run under the user previously specified. ;~     RunWait(@WindowsDir & "C:\automation\TestScripts\Writefilter.exe", @WindowsDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE) EndFunc
