Is it possible to get the object of "Open" or "Save As" window

16 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Is it possible to get the object of a "Open" or "Save As" window. I have tested with the ObjGet function, but didn't get a result. And error number is something like this -245404447. All i need to navigate a specific folder from this "Open" or "Save As" window.

The Obj* functions do not automate the GUI, they use COM to access methods and properties of the application.
Which application do you try to automate?

Oh then the FileOpenDialogue windows are not a part of Shell.Application object. I thought that, i can connect it with COM. You mean those windows are only the part of the parent programs. Anyway, i have tried with Google Chrome's Save As window. I need to save all jpeg files to a dedicated folder. So i have made a script. It will start as soon as the Save As window opens. And suddenly rename the jpeg file with a dedicated uniqe name. But i can't navigate the dedicated folder then. That is my problem.

Do I understand you correctly that you want to

  • wait until the user opens the Save As dialog
  • When the user saves a jpeg file then rename it
  • Save it to another folder

But I might be wrong. From your OP it is not really clear what you want to do.

@KCVINU: Did you try to just enter your foldername in the file textbox.
That textbox itself is directly recognized whereas the listbox controls and treeview controls are only reachable with IUIAutomation.

But in your case it seems just that you have to enter <path><filename>.jpg in the file textbox.

That easily can be done with controlsettext function of AutoIT

[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1] seems to be the recognition pattern (at least from Chrome save as)

 

based on

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/ControlSetText.htm

you should get something like

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Wait 10 seconds for the save as window to appear.
    Local $hWnd = WinWait("[CLASS:#32770]", "", 10)

    ; Set the edit control in save as with some text. The handle returned by WinWait is used for the "title" parameter of ControlSetText.
    ControlSetText($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]", "%temp%\myfile.jpg")

    ; Retrieve the text of the edit control in Notepad. The handle returned by WinWait is used for the "title" parameter of ControlGetText.
   ; Local $sText = ControlGetText($hWnd, "", "Edit1")

    ; Display the text of the edit control.
;    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The text in Edit1 is: " & $sText)

    ; Close the Notepad window using the handle returned by WinWait.
;    WinClose($hWnd)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

@water , this is my code. 

While 1
    Sleep(50)
    if _IsPressed("1B") Then ; Press esc for off
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    If WinExists("Save As") Then

        Local $wintxt = ControlGetText("Save As", "", 1001) ; Text from Chrome's save as window
        If StringRegExp($wintxt, "unnamed") And StringLen($wintxt) <= 7 Then ; if there is an unnamed file
            WinActivate("Save As")
            Local $Current_time = _Now() ; Setting present time to a variable
            Local $DediCated_FileName = StringReplace($Current_time, ":", "-") ; Replaces all ':' s
            ControlSetText("Save As", $wintxt, 1001, $DediCated_FileName) ; Set the new filename
            Send("{END}s")

        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

Exit

In this code i didn't try to change the folder path, because i don't know how to do it.

I haven't tried it but you simply would prepend the path. Example:

ControlSetText("Save As", $wintxt, 1001, "C:\temp\ & $DediCated_FileName) ; Set the new path and filename

@KCVINU: I used #32770 as AU3Inf did not get the text from the save as window. So in your winexists you should check on special definition 

winexists("[CLASS:#32770]")

similar for winactivate

ControlSetText("Save As", $wintxt, 1001, $DediCated_FileName) ; Set the new filenam

change to

ControlSetText("Save As", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]", $DediCated_FileName) ; Set the new filenam

      Hi all. 
      I am trying to do 2 things but i cannot seem to get any traction on how to read/implement this idea.
      Premise: PowerPoint file in C\temp\presentation.pptx that contains on the first slide 2 entries as "<one>" and "<two>" which need to be replaced with "user1" and "user2", then a silent Outlook send mail containing the file with a predefined body and subject.
      I narrowed it down to COM objects as the Office does not like intrusive open AutoIt functions. I installed OLE/COM Object Viewer to understand how to create the commands but i am still stuck. So far i am trying to user water's code but i suck
      COM object i was originally trying to modify
      Dim $oPPT, $oPres $oPPT = ObjCreate("PowerPoint.Application") $oPPT.Visible = True $oPres = $oPPT.Presentations.Read Water's code below (0.1% modified)
      #include <File.au3> #include "PowerPoint.au3" #include <misc.au3> Global $sFile = "C:\temp\presentation.pptx" Global $sString2Search = "<username>", $sString2Replace = "Password", $iReplaceOnce = 1, $sFullLogFile = "C:\temp\pptxlog.txt" _ProcessPpt($sFile) Func _ProcessPpt($sFile) $oApp = _PPT_PowerPointApp() Local $bChange = False Local $oInterface = $oApp.Presentations Local $oPresentation = $oInterface.Open($sFile, False, False, False) If @error Then _FileWriteLog($sFullLogFile, "E Error " & @error & " opening File " & $sFile) Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndIf ;it does not even open my file and from here not sure how to read the text and replace it EndFunc ;==>_ProcessPpt

      I am having a very unique, but repeatable problem with ImageMagick COM interface. Here are the applicable lines of code:
      $oIM=ObjCreate("ImageMagickObject.MagickImage.1")
      and then later on...
      $oIM.Convert(String($arFileList[$nFileIndex])&'[0]',"-alpha", "remove",@TempDir&"\temp.jpg")
      the array points to a pdf file with the "convert" command converting the first page of the pdf to a jpg with any alpha layer removed.
      Every time, without fail, the first time I run the script on a freshly booted machine it crashes on the $oIM.Convert command. It does this if it isn't compiled and says there is an error executing the command on the object. If compiled, i get an error that autoit has stopped responding. Anytime I run the script, compiled or not, after this initial crash everything works perfectly fine.
      I am totally at a loss as to why this is occurring and how to correct it.

      Is there a way to read data directly from the Windows Component Object Model (COM) interface?
      I am trying to make a really simple disk space reporter tool for accounts on an Active Directory domain, to read the disk quota limit for the logged on user's home directory, and report how much disk space they are currently using.

      Hi All,
      I've coded the small script below, but it can't seem to get the instance of Windows Media player as it keeps going to @error, I've not used com objects before so any assistance would be appreciate. I already have WMP open and minimised. I retrieved "WMPlayerApp" from the AutoIT info tool, I've included a copy below.
      I'm using these sources:
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd564085.aspx
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd564018.aspx
      $oWMP = ObjGet("", "WMPlayerApp") If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Can't get WMP", "Couldn't connect to the WMP instance") Exit EndIf $wmpPlayState = $oWMP.playState MsgBox(0, "Play State", $wmpPlayState) $wmpSongName = $oWMP.currentMedia.name MsgBox(0, "Play State", $wmpSongName) I've also seen references to the below, but I want to get an existing open WMP:
      ObjCreate("wmplayer.OCX") and have looked at the WMP.udf but can't see how it will do either of the functions I've coded above.

      Hi all (Especially @water)
      I wonder how to do this task in word from autoit.
      Assume that i pasted some text into word with this code.
      Local $oWord = ObjGet("","Word.Application") Local $wRangeObj = _Word_DocRangeSet($oWord, 0) Local $data = ClipGet() $wRangeObj.Text = $data $wRangeObj.Font.Bold = True So far so good. Now, i need to enter a new line in word and turn the Font.Bold = False.  
      Currently, i did it with activating the word window and Send() function. But i would like to do it with the help of COM object. How can i do that ?
