You don't use regsvr32 when using it in c#. That's for the COM mode. In c# you just use the .net assembly as the instructions above.

The DllNotFoundException is caused by screwed up assembly dependencies when the dll package was built.  Nuget installer for AutoitX is not working for the same reason (more details here).  Bottom line - Visual Studio doesn't know it needs to copy AutoItX3.dll to the output directory.  It only copies AutoItX3.Assembly.dll, and forgets about the other one.

The easiest solution is ensuring AutoItX3.dll is in your output bin/Debug or bin/Release directory, when you run your program (basically the same directory as your exe).  You can do that by simply placing AutoItX3.dll in the root of your project in visual studio, and then setting its properties to:

Copy to Output Directory: 'Copy if newer'

Hi can someone enlighten me, I have a current application in autoit that calculate IP address. would I be able to port that to c# using autoitx3.dll then that application can be run off the browser. This is fascinating if true

thanks ahead for any answers

I'm not sure what your post is getting at, with "run off the browser".

AutoIt3X allows you to reference the dll in C# and use its functions, which are a subset of AutoIt's native functions.

You wont find UDF functions such as _IE* etc...

This resolved the issue when executing from visual studio, however when the build is put into an MTM build directory the error returns. Have confirmed that the dll is in the build directory.

 

Any thoughts?

How can I list all windows with `AutoITX` static field? Seems most of methods are preserved, but `WinList` is missing.

Hi,

I tried to select an email in Outlook 2013 but without success. I succeeded with the below code to open the Outlook window and send a TAB

public void Outlook()
        {

            autoit.Run("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Office15\\outlook.exe");
            autoit.WinActivate(MessageText);
            
            string windowName = "Inbox - ";
            int found = autoit.WinWait(windowName, "", 10);
            if (found != 0)
            {
                autoit.WinActivate(windowName);
                
                autoit.Send("{ENTER}");
                autoit.Send("{TAB}");

            }
        }

Any idea or sugestion how to do this?

Using C# from AutoIt and .Net

Now that we can run C# and VB code in AutoIt it could be interesting to see, if we can run the C# code from first post in AutoIt:

using AutoIt;
using System;
using System.Threading;

public class Au3Class
{
  public void MyMethod()
  {
    // Wow, this is C#!
    AutoItX.Run("notepad.exe", "", AutoItX.SW_SHOW);
    AutoItX.WinWaitActive("Untitled");
    AutoItX.Send("I'm in notepad{Enter}{Enter}");
    AutoItX.Send("From AutoItX in C{#}{Enter}{Enter}");
    AutoItX.Send("From C{#} in AutoIt through .NET Framework{Enter}");
    Thread.Sleep(5000);
    IntPtr winHandle = AutoItX.WinGetHandle("Untitled");
    AutoItX.WinKill(winHandle);
  }
}
#include "DotNetAll.au3"

Example()

Func Example()
  ; Wow, this is AutoIt!
  Local $oComErrFunc = ObjEvent( "AutoIt.Error", "ComErrFunc" )
  #forceref $oComErrFunc

  Local $oNetCode = DotNet_LoadCScode( FileRead( "AutoItXTest.cs" ), "System.dll | AutoItX3.Assembly.dll" )
  Local $oAu3Class = DotNet_CreateObject( $oNetCode, "Au3Class" )
  $oAu3Class.MyMethod()
EndFunc

You must copy AutoItX3.Assembly.dll, AutoItX3.dll and AutoItX3_x64.dll to @ScriptDir. And you must copy AutoItX3.Assembly.dll to AutoIt installation folder where AutoIt3.exe and AutoIt3_x64.exe are installed.

The code: AutoItXTest.7z

Zag8888,

Look in your AutoIt installation folder, you will find the files in AutoItX subfolder.

I'm having 1 issue,

using Autoit;

IntPtr winhandle = AutoItX.WinGetPos("Google Chrome"); 
            if (AutoItX.PixelGetColor(745 + winhandle[0], winhandle[1] + 55) != 0xFF4DEB)
            {
                MessageBox.Show("text", "text");
            }
            
            

I get always error, what I wrong?

      Hi, everyone.
      I have python code for kill window,  but sometimes it does not working .

      My code is :
      import subprocess import time import ctypes au3_dll = ctypes.windll.LoadLibrary(r'D:\AutoIt\AutoItX3.dll') def close_ie(title): subprocess.Popen(f"C:/Program Files (x86)/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe https://cn.bing.com/?mkt=zh-CN") time.sleep(2) au3_dll.AU3_Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ret = au3_dll.AU3_WinKill(title, "") print(ret) if __name__ == '__main__': title = '必应 - Internet Explorer' for i in range(10): close_ie(title) My expectation is that all IE windows will be closed, but there will always be a few windows still there.
      My env: win10 64bit python3.6.4 autoit v3.3.14.2  
      Any suggestions would be appreciated

      I have a project in mind that I would like to share.
      I would like to create example windows with standard elements like ComboBox, ListView, some Button, some text, some edit field.

      Nothing special just simple Window.Net form that can be created with this following UDF:
      or this one:
       
      The main idea is to easily provide possible modifications to the "Testing GUI Window", and no need for any other tool than the AutoIt + SciTE kit.

      Such "Testing GUI Window" will be very useful later on topic/threads/projects like:

      As I am not very familiar with NetFramework, I would like to ask for help with this project.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hi AutoIt programmers, excuse me for bothering you with multiple topics.

      In AutoIt we can use Number() function to convert Hex string to number but it's output is different of C# output & and i wanna make it's output like AutoIt code.

      For e.g I use this in AutoIt:
      Local $dBinary = Binary("Hello") ; Create binary data from a string. Local $dExtract = Number(BinaryMid($dBinary, 1, 5)) ConsoleWrite($dExtract & @CRLF) And i use this for C#:
      using System; using System.Text; //NameSpace Is Use of Project Name namespace TEST { class Program { public static void Main(string[] args) { //declaring a variable and assigning hex value string dd = ToHex("Hello", Encoding.ASCII); decimal d = Int64.Parse(dd, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber); Console.WriteLine("Result: " + d); //hit ENTER to exit Console.ReadLine(); } public static string ToHex(string sInput, Encoding oEncoding, bool b0x_Prefix = false) { byte[] a_binaryOutput = oEncoding.GetBytes(sInput); string sOutput = BitConverter.ToString(a_binaryOutput).Replace("-", ""); if (b0x_Prefix == false) { return sOutput; } else { return "0x" + sOutput; } } } }
      I say once again that excuse me for creating new topic, in fact i'm making a library for GAuthOTP from a topic in AutoIt.

      Hi All,
       
      I am new to this AUTO IT and I have created a script that will open an app,enter pin and copy the code generated to clipboard. My java code call this autoIT script and use the copied generated code from clipboard.
      This works fine when server  window is on focus. My server is an windows server. 
      But when I minimize or disconnect the server, the script opens the app.exe but doesn't copy any value to clipboard.  
      Can anyone help me on this 😐
       
      Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\RSA SecurID Software Token\SecurID.exe")
      Local $hWnd=WinWait("abc - RSA SecurID Token") ; waits until the window is the active window
      $hWin = WinGetHandle("abc - RSA SecurID Token");
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","1111") ; simulates pressing the Home key
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","{ENTER}");
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","^c");
      Sleep(1000) ;
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","^c");

      Hello everyone.
      I always try to work with old Windows 10 versions as much as possible because I know mane compatibility issues with Windows 10 upgrading. 
      But I couldn't do anything else (I got drivers problem), and nothing couldn't help me besides upgrading, so I upgraded from 1807 to 1903.
      And...get another problem 😃
      I use AutoitX library in external project like this.
      ObjectAutoIt=New COMObject("AutoItX3.Control");
      ObjectAutoIt.AutoItSetOption("WinTextMatchMode",2);
              While ObjectAutoit.WinExists("",WindowHeader) Cycle 
                  ObjectAutoIt.WinClose("",WindowHeader);
              EndCycle;
      After upgrade I get that this line code 
      While ObjectAutoit.WinExists("",WindowHeader)
      become extremely low - ~ 20 seconds even if 10 windows open. But before upgrade it takes 0.5 s for a max.
      And every time that this code line passes through  - it takes ~20s, (20.115, for example), not less, not more. Something pauses it to work.
      How can I diagnose, what is that?
      I tried reinstall whole AutoIt, but no results.
      Thanks to all.
