I am running the tomcat batch file through autoit and need to wait until the below line I get in console output.
But when I am trying to read the console output using the ProcessEx UDF, I am getting only the partial output.
So, can you please suggest how to handle this.
im just started in programming and all..
and i wanted to learn autoscript to.
Was wondering if any can convert my one-liner batch script to an autoit script -
FOR /F %%i IN (names.txt) DO @copy system.act %%i.act
So what this does is open and read the file "names.txt" incrementally, and copy a certain file named "system.act" and rename it to each name that is listed on "names.txt"
So im trying this on autoit but no idea how to start file manipulation and do command -
$file = "c:\names.txt"
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
$line = FileReadLine($file, $i)
Can anyone help me or guide me on how to continue this to get the result that i want..:)?
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.
I have several batch files, e.g.
echo off echo !DT | ncat 192.168.1.6 80 > scan1.dta This data1.bat works as expected by saving data from !DT command.
I have tried several variations from AutoIt
; $DOS = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /k " & "ncat 192.168.1.6 80 <getdata >scan1.dta", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ; $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /k " & "ncat 192.168.1.6 80 <getdata >scan1.dta", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ; $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "echo ?DT | ncat 192.168.1.6 80 > scan1.dta & @CRLF", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "data1.bat & @CRLF", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) but none save the data to scan1.dta
Run out of ideas so far...
I came here with maybe too specific questions about uncommon things, but as people says, I don't lose anything trying to asking here
There's long time that I have a little "experimental" idea: Use windows desktop and it icon system like old videogame consoles (where "sprites" are used to draw things on screen, can be manipulated/animated to make interesting things happen). Some of that inspiration came from another experiments from demoscene.
Researching the possibilities of doing something like that (maybe not so intense) I found that the Windows Desktop uses a GuiListView to show and arrange icons (and of course, AutoIt provides UDF's for that ). So, I'm used that UDF to create dummy icons (not putting files on Desktop, just modifiying the "GUI layer" of desktop for put non-working icons), setting custom values like coordinates, name and Icon (from a list of loaded icons in the GuiListView). As you can see in next image works well in Windows XP... even in Windows 95 (that's not the case from Windows Vista to 10, but I already posted another question here about that... anyways, for now I'm working that with a isolated XP machine... sigh).
Another video doing an animation with that:
How I make that custom icons? Here:
$hWnd = ControlGetHandle("Program Manager", "", "[CLASS:SysListView32; INSTANCE:1]") $newItem = _GUICtrlListView_AddItem ( $hWnd, "TEST", 32 ) ; with an icon of index 32 _GUICtrlListView_SetItemPosition ( $hWnd, $newItem, 300, 300 ) ; set some example property. Put in X=300 Y=300 Okay, so the next phase was changing the icons with custom ones. And here starts the issues. As AutoIT help says, icons from GuiListView came from a loaded GUIImageList, which, seeing past images I conclude that it's already preloaded with some sort of most used icons (something like an icon cache?). But If I modify it (or create another GUIImageList and then put into the GuiListView) the icons became corrupted and replaced with blank ones. (can be reverted deleting IconCache.db, just like when windows shows wrong icons in desktop).
How I change icons? Here
$hImage = _GUIImageList_Create(48, 48, 5) ; create an image list for 48x48 icons $newIcon = _GUIImageList_AddIcon($imageList, @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll", 110) ; just adding a new icon in the image list _GUICtrlListView_SetImageList($hWnd, $hImage, 0) ; $hwnd is the desktop hwnd Another option as workaround for setting icons was getting the desktop GUIImageList, and modifiyng it directly. I otbtain a GUIImageList handle, but ... without any images inside! (That's strange beacuse, when I set desktop item icons without altering the GUIImageList, it applies correctly). And finally if I try to add new ones, it returns -1 with @error setted.
How I'm trying to get desktop GUIImageList? Here.
$imageList = _GUICtrlListView_GetImageList ( $hWnd, 0 ) MsgBox(0,_GUIImageList_GetImageCount ( $imageList ), $imageList) ; getting image count and GUIImageList handle $newIcon = _GUIImageList_AddIcon($imageList, @SystemDir & "\shell32.dll", 110) ; adding icons without success So, what is the question? There's something wrong I'm doing while trying to set the new icon set on desktop? Or desktop icons work in different way than the rest of the GuiListView's? Or there's something really stupid that I can't saw before that corrupts the icons?
Also... if there's not known solution for that, do you have some idea for doing a workaround for that? Or another crazy idea? (Maybe putting real files instead dummy icons could be a solution ... a very slow one). Or even maybe (maybe not, I sure about that xD) do you want to help with this "experiment".
Thanks in advance, have a good day
