Autoit Exe help

Recommended Posts


Hello Folks,

I am new to autoit and finding some difficulties. The problem is, Say i have an already compiles gui(exe). How do i make such gui create and exe file that is  executable. I've run out of ideas on how it can be done. For example, I have a gui that takes a user input in the form of a filename then echo it out with the standard msgbox. This time i want to accept user input and store the file as an exe which when executed popups up a msg box. this is my sample code:

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version:
 Author:         myName

 Script Function:
    Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>


Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Exe Creater", 343, 176, 192, 124)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Exe Creater", 104, 8, 136, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("This program creates an exe that outputs a msgbox.", 16, 40, 248, 17)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("msgbox", 16, 80, 313, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Create Exe", 128, 128, 75, 33)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "closeprog")

GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Button1, "createprog")

While 1

Func closeprog()

Func createprog()
    Local $Input1hld = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
    Local $fileloc = $Input1hld &".exe"
    Local $echoing = MsgBox(0, "File Successfully Created", "File name is : " & $fileloc)

    _FileCreate ( $fileloc )

    FileWrite($fileloc, $echoing)

@kylomas When i say store the file as exe, i mean accept the user input, then make the results an exe file which when clicked on or executed gives the results. So basically, i want my gui to accept the user input, craete an exe file in the current dir which show the results in a message box when clicked.


@MikahS read it but i dont want to call another script. All i want is my standalone compiled gui accepting an input and then creating an exe file with processed input, which when clicked on displays results in a msgbox

I looking forward to writing a simple server and client program. I am wondering, instead of creating a server part and a client part, why not just one executable(client) that creates a server . exe
