List and count variable(s) from autoit script to text(Like Autoit Debugger Variables window)

Recommended Posts


To everyone,

The following script will help you count variable within autoit script file (.au3) and list them to a text file. The output list is similar to the varible windows in autoit debugger.

You may comment out the last line to print your list directly to a default printer.

Hmmm, you don't need to the use registry for this. Also this will display as a variable...

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "This is not a $variable")

I have code floating around the forum which does exactly this. It's quicker, correct and doesn't use the registry for keeping the count.

      Hey There!
      So, what i need to do is an app that can read text in a image (I.e. a png that has text saying "This is a png" and return the text to a variable)
      I'm pretty much a newbie on AutoIt, my purpose is doing that but i don't know any function that can

      Any help is much appreciated

      I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
      In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
      Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
      edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.
