I try to add a new UDF to my AutoIT library, and it seems I fail. I started to work following the insturctions found on the wiki .
I made an extra folder just next to my AutoIT folder, called ExtraUDF, and copied the file CUIAutomation2.au3 in it (I try to use this UDF for automating a program) then I run sciteconfig, set this folder up as User Include Folder, applied the changes, then run the calltip manager and got a msg when I tried to parse it. I attach a few pictures for better present the problem.
I think I miss something here, should i put anything else on the ExtraUDF folder? I dont think that the CallTip manager added the udf to scite, If I try to run it i get a msg saying that I Scite cant open the include file and naturally after that, It can't use the functions called from it.
Thank you for your help and insight as always! Please ask, if anything is fuzzy about the problem
Good day to the members of the forum..
Is there any UDF that is available to automate Attachmate Extra Mainframe sessions?
I am trying to automate mainframe processes. I couldn't get values from particular co-ordinates in mainframe or pass values to particular co-ordinates in mainframe.
Please let me know if there is any UDF or any other kind of solution is available.
Thanks and regards,
I would like to know if I can use the Excel UDF to manipulating a .csv file without having Office installed on the PC I'm going to work...
I read somewhere that it could be done, but I'm here to ask and be sure of what I remember...
I'd like to post another question...
How can I retrieve the handle of a windows from a PID of an .exe?
I have my script that does a ShellExecute ( which returns the PID of the .exe ), and then, switching a parameter read from a .ini file, adapt the Window on the screen ( Maximize, Minimize, On Top )...
I tried, but without having success with this:
#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile_x64=prova.exe #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIEx.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $sFileConfigurazione = @ScriptDir & "\configurazione_exe.ini" If(FileExists($sFileConfigurazione)) Then Local $aSezioniIni = IniReadSection($sFileConfigurazione, "CONFIGURAZIONE_EXE") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file: " & @CRLF & $sFileConfigurazione & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Else ; Lancio dell'applicativo indicato nel file di configurazione Local $iPID = ShellExecute($aSezioniIni) Local $hWnd If($iPID <> 0) Then Local $aWinList = WinList() For $i = 1 To $aWinList If(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i] = $iPID)) Then $hWnd = $aWinList[$i] EndIf Next Switch($aSezioniIni) Case $aSezioniIni = "MIN" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni = "MAX" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni = "TOP" WinSetOnTop($hWnd, "", $WINDOWS_ONTOP) EndSwitch EndIf EndIf EndIf It just set on top the .exe I'm launching...
I had a need, and so I developed.
Before I did that though, I did a quick search of the forum, and found a few things, but none seemed to suit what I really wanted ... though to be honest, I did not investigate them deeply or search extensively. In any case, I am not very good at modifying the code of others, nor do I enjoy doing so, so in the end I decided it was best to start from scratch ... re-inventing the wheel perhaps, but a wheel I feel a certain degree of comfort with. I also thought about Maps, but don't know enough.
_IniString Functions (was Ini_InMem)
Ini in memory
Settings INI - Read/Write once to the disk
INI File Processing Functions
... sure to be others.
As with all my stuff, feel free to use (no guarantees) or modify ... just give me credit where due.
I always go for the quick & simple approach, as those who know me here, are well aware, so without a doubt, my code could be improved - sped up, RegExp used, etc. So feel free to do that, and convert into a proper UDF, if you want, following best practices etc, as I am sure others will appreciate it.
Recently, I have come upon a need to extract data from an approximately 50 Mb downloaded Index file, just extracting the few elements I need, and storing them in an INI file. It is quite a time consuming process, especially on my underpowered Netbook, which is where I am using the program I built. I have been considering ways to speed up things. Two good sounding methods, out of several possibles, have come to mind - 1) RAM Disk and 2) Virtual INI processing. That last being a better option, when sharing code (program) with others.
Another method, which I am currently using, that did give me some measurable benefit, was to download the almost 50 Mb Index file in Stages (i.e. 30 x 1.4 Mb roughly), extracting data from each in turn. I have also considered extracting to 10 (or 11) separate INI files, rather than the single large INI file (4~5 Mb), as things noticeably slow up as the INI file increases in size ... obviously due to writing time.
I can't really speed up the extraction process, but that last method may speed up the writing stage. However, it would require significant program changes, and perhaps not gain me much benefit. To complicate things, there are too many Section names (Index ID's) for the IniReadSectionNames command, so I have had to split them off into their own (read/write) line-by-line index file, and create code to deal with duplicates. When read, Index ID's and Titles populate a Listbox control in a user GUI.
So at this point in time, it seems best to use the Virtual INI approach to gain a significant reduction in time taken. For my own specific use, with my slow Netbook, I may also use a RAM Disk.
Due to the aforementioned INI issues, and lack of available specific data, probably because it is always program concentric, I have created an ASCII Checker program, which I guess you can say, is AutoIt concentric. Because others may also find it handy, I am providing it here. NOTE - As yet, I am only aware that Escape characters exist, but have not investigated or catered for them in any way.
The Virtual_INI_UDF is still a work in progress, though I have done most of the functions now, with the working but incomplete _Ini_Test function, still requiring changes etc from the information gleaned by the ASCII Checker program.
Here's something to play with meanwhile.
Updated files (24th February 2017)
Example.au3 (23rd February 2017)
All pretty basic, but managed to load my 4 Mb INI file (seemingly ok, but took a few seconds) ... though I have only worked with much smaller testing ones so far.
P.S. While I have done a fair amount of testing, it has been pretty basic, and mostly limited to the examples provided. Testing has definitely not been extensive.
A UDF with Extended Functions for Window Management
This UDF is still in the development phase. All code works and should be generally bug free, however function names and parameters are subject to change.
Fixes _WindowGetClassList's barbaric returning of a @LF separated string instead of an array.
Automating applications that change their controls' handles/classes on each launch (e.g. half of Cisco's programs)
