      Trying to figure out how to do CallByName on AutoIt COM objects due to the lack of being able to set properties within an Execute() statement
      Several Ideas were Tried https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/200129-set-object-properties-with-propertyname-and-value-taken-from-an-array/
      I think this is the best; Patching the vtable of IDispatch so we can intercept a Fake function call ($obj.Au3_CallByName)
      use it like this
      Local $oDictionary = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary") ; EXAMPLE Au3_CallByname_Init() ; (you can optionally provide a classname here but we patch the main Idispatch interface so really no need) $Au3_CallByName = "Add" ; Method we want to call $oDictionary.Au3_CallByName("Test", "Value") Au3_CallByname_Init(False) ; (Not Strictly Needed unhooked on exit) NOTE:  Au3_CallByname_Init() doesn't have to be called at the top of the script, just call it before you need to call by name...

      Hi guys!
      A pretty simple UDF to convert HTML to PDF using wkHTMLtoPDF.
      It uses the C API of the tool (DLL), so no external process, no ActiveX or COM sh*t.
      See the example, and the documentation of wkHTMLtoPDF.
      Cheers

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to write a script that connects with a VBA/COM API to get the status of a connected phone. I've been looking up and down this forum for tips or other user's experiences, but I can't seem to find anything (even remotely) similar. It shouldn't be so hard to do, however.
      Software I'm trying to connect to
      I'm trying to integrate CallCenter by using their API, which is documented over here : JustRemotePhone API Reference
      Things I've tried
      I've tried using ObjCreate but I don't get any result, it always returns the same (negative) error.
      #Version 1 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhone.RemotePhoneService") #Version 2 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService") #Version 3 tried ObjCreate("JustRemotePhoneCOM.RemotePhoneService.Application") None of the three versions I tried seem to deliver any result other than a negative error value which basically says that the given class is not valid.
      I am starting to get the hang of AutoIt by now, but unmanaged programming languages and object-oriented stuff is still quite a grey zone for me. If anyone could help me 'talk' to this application, I'd be immensely grateful!
      Thanks in advance and kind regards from Belgium!

      This is relevant
      From here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3454315/is-it-possible-to-pin-a-dll-in-memory-to-prevent-unloading
      I use several UDFs on the Forum to do various things.  Those UDFs work very well.
      Effectively the UDFs are DLL wrappers, that make it possible to access DLL functions easily without the long hard slog of DLLCall() every time.
      However, I have now run into the issue that multiple UDF DLLCalls are slow. Not mind numbingly slow, but slow enough to become noticeable with a large of repeated function calls.
      So I was wondering, is it possible to "load a DLL into memory" and leave it there for the duration of my script's lifetime, avoid repeated DLL on-disk reads with a persistent in memory DLL?
      From Microsoft
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/dlls/about-dynamic-link-libraries
      Looks like what I want to do is: load-time dynamic linking,
      So next question, (a) how do I do this with AutoIt (b) How would this impact on standard AutoIt type DLL calls?
       
      The point is speed.  Is there a different approach?
      Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
