Need to run script in background(user should not see what is running)

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am trying some script to run in back group (should not be visible).. For example, if i open notepad and type something and save it on desktop.. all these activities should not be shown to user. I went through some blogs and got better idea. But while running the script, am seeing SAVE AS window is visible for few seconds..

Please let me know is there a way to hide that SAVE AS window too? Appreciate your help..

Other question i have is, while running this script, I want to work on other task (any task, like email or word document or music any task) .. is that possible or do i need to wait and dont use keyboard / mouse till the script executed fully? 

 

#notrayicon
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

; Remove Test file
$filenamepath = 'C:\Users\varikutv\Desktop\test.txt'
FileDelete($filenamepath)


; Launch Notepad and Enter some text
Run("notepad", "", @SW_HIDE)
ProcessWait("notepad.exe")
ControlSend("Notepad", "", "Edit1", "Hello created file")

; Save as $filenamepath
WinMenuSelectItem("Notepad", "", "&File", "Save &As...")
WinWait("Save As", "")
WinSetState("Save As","",@SW_HIDE)
ControlSetText("Save As", "", "Edit1", $filenamepath)
ControlSend("Save As","","","{TAB}")
ControlSend("Save As","","","{TAB}")
ControlSend("Save As","","","{TAB}")
ControlSend("Save As","","","{TAB}")
ControlSend("Save As","","","{SPACE}")

viswat88,

all these activities should not be shown to user

And just why do you want to hide this activity from the user?

When you see a MOD has replied with a question for the OP, and not given a solution, don't take it upon yourself to then give one.

ahmeddzcom,

As TheSaint has pointed out, we take a very dim view of people providing help when a Mod is awaiting some clarity on the question posed. Please do not do it again.

@Melba23 -

This example here (for notepad) is just to understand the concept and run the application in hide mode (user should not see whats happening)

Also, when you are running in hide mode, it is not good to see SAVE AS window or other windows. My main interest is, once i got the concept, i will use it on various systems as an admin to install required applications through exe file based on the tickets /user requirements.. (for example - user need access to some X system, i need to change IP address and hit some commands to get access, so i can do this on user system but i dont want them to know what am doing or the commands what i use)

Please let me know how to hide all such intermediate windows when running script in hide mode.. Thanks..
