[Solved] Escaping Quote Character

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Heya AutoIt Community,

I'm sure this has been posted tons of times before, and I googled & forum'd it and found relevant topics, but none of these fixes apply to my particular code for some reason.

What I have right now:

ShellExecute("""" & $sProgramPath & """" & " !LoadLayout " & """" & $sLayout2 & """")

What I want to happen:

"C:\Program Files\Program\Program.exe" !LoadLayout "Working"

What actually happens:

Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Program\Program.exe" !LoadLayout "Gaming'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

Of course the path is wrong because it has the wrong quotation marks!

I've used several methods trying to get normal quotes to appear in the programpath, like "", """" and even chr(34), but they all just return the above faulty @error message. How do I get it to look like what I want to happen?

Many Thanks in Advance,

~Admiral Medallyon

You should show all your code, I'm having trouble trying to figure out the word "Working" was transformed in to the word "Gaming".

$sLayout is an input from the user. It can be anything.

And where the single quotes magically appeared from.

That's why I posted this thread. I want to have it in the form

"C:\Program Files\Program\Program.exe" !LoadLayout "Working"

but it comes out as

'C:\Program Files\Program\Program.exe" !LoadLayout "Gaming'

because I cannot figure out the quotation. I was looking for help as to why my "s turned into 's.

Medallyon,

Try this...

ShellExecute('"' & $sProgramPath & '"', " !LoadLayout " & $sLayout2)

Note: the 2ND parm of shellexecute is the parm(s).

Medallyon,

This works flawlessly. Thank you very much for the quick input.

      Hi everyone.

      I'm currently working a program that constantly prints out log files through "consolewrite" and the "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" wrapper.

      Part of this program requires me to run a batch script.

      My issue is the batch script launches from the same window as consolewrite. I need the batch file to be launched through a different window as currently this causes an issue with the logs (which need to be very precise) but also causes the batch file to produce some funny behavior...

      Does anyone know how I can force the file to run on a second DOS window?

      Thanks in advance!!!
       
      Edit: Im using the "run" command if that helps. I tried "shellexecute" but that seemed to not launch the batch scripts at all.

      Hi All,
      I tried my best to looking a solution from this forum or others, but I have no luck. The imagesearch dll working fine in my 64 bits machine, whenever I move the scripts to Win 7 (32 bits), it crashes. ImageSearchDLL.dll, ImageSearch.au3 and my simple scripts are in the same working directory. For win 7 (32 bits) machine, I'm using 32 bits ImageSearchdll.dll, the simple scripts as below:
      #include <ImageSearch.au3>
      Global $y = 0, $x = 0
      Local $search = _ImageSearch("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\Images\mypc.PNG", 0, $x, $y, 0)
      if $search = 1 then
         MsgBox(0,"Found","Found my target here..." & $x & "," & $y)
         MouseMove($x, $y, 10)
      Else
         msgbox(0, "Not found","")
      Endif
      However, I received error message below when running the script. Anyone here got clue?
