I can not program.  What I am trying to do is make a little AutoIt Desktop SMS sender that uses BulkSMS upstream.  BulkSMS provides services in the UK, USA, Europe and South Africa.  BulkSMS provides several options (a) create string and plug it into browser and send via HTTP, ugly but it works; (b) a DLL called smstxt32.dll which supports a few functions to do this in a typical Windows Desktop application.  They provide examples in C, PHP, Python etc.  I do not understand any of those.  I attach several files.

The BulkSMS home page is located here: www.BulkSMS.com

You can create a free account which allows five free credits to experiment with. So you can try to send the SMSes for free initially.

The file "BulkSMS Win32 API ver 1006a.zip" contains a .doc help file and the smstxt32.dll file.

 BulkSMS Win32 API ver 1006a.zip

The file BulkSMS.au3 is my attempt.

 BulkSMS.au3

My BulkSMS.au3 attempts to create the required structs for use with the DLL.  I think I do manage, but do not understand anything about pointers.  Then I attempt to actually send the SMS using the following DLLCALL

Local $res = DllCall($__g_hDll_BulkSMS, _   ; name of DLL
            "BOOL", _                           ; return type
            "SMSAPI_sendsms", _                 ; function
            "LONG", _                               ; type1
            $gSMSAPI_NETWORKCONFIGURATION, _    ; param1
            "LONG", _                               ; type2
            $gSMSAPI_ACCOUNTINFO, _             ; param2
            "LONG", _                               ; type3
            $gSMSAPI_MESSAGEINFO, _             ; param3
            "LONG", _                               ; type4
            $gSMSAPI_RESPONSEINFO _             ; param4
            )

This is based on the following example from the included help file, 

sms_sendsms Function

Use this function to send an SMS Text message to one or more mobile phones. The message can be sent immediately or scheduled for later delivery.

Syntax

bool SMSAPI_sendsms(
const LPSMSAPI_NETWORKCONFIGURATION lpNetConfig, 
const LPSMSAPI_ACCOUNTINFO lpAccInfo, 
const LPSMSAPI_MESSAGEINFO lpMsgInfo, 
LPSMSAPI_RESPONSEINFO lpResponseInfo);

According to the AutoIt Helpfile, there are conversions to comparable data types.  However, I do not see a "const" so I do not know what do with that.  Also, the C example shows the use of "long pointers." What would this be in AutoIt?

Thank you

      ..where to start. I've posted: 
      now I wanna pull the data from WTSSessionInfo and WTSSessionInfoEx as described in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/wtsapi32/ns-wtsapi32-wtsinfoa
      typedef struct _WTSINFOA { WTS_CONNECTSTATE_CLASS State; <--- that is an enumeration from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/wtsapi32/ne-wtsapi32-wts_connectstate_class DWORD SessionId; DWORD IncomingBytes; DWORD OutgoingBytes; DWORD IncomingFrames; DWORD OutgoingFrames; DWORD IncomingCompressedBytes; DWORD OutgoingCompressedBy; CHAR WinStationName[WINSTATIONNAME_LENGTH]; CHAR Domain[DOMAIN_LENGTH]; CHAR UserName[USERNAME_LENGTH + 1]; LARGE_INTEGER ConnectTime; LARGE_INTEGER DisconnectTime; LARGE_INTEGER LastInputTime; LARGE_INTEGER LogonTime; LARGE_INTEGER CurrentTime; } WTSINFOA, *PWTSINFOA; from the example in ListUserSessions() I get, say:

      Hi,
      My AutoIt script is as folllows:
      ;use for calling function add2NosA in dll ;Local $vNo1 = 33 ;Local $vNo2 = 11 ;use for calling function sortNos in dll Local $vNo1 = [11,7,9] Local $vNo2 = [1,3,2] ; _ArrayDisplay($vNo1, "vNo1 display") ; _ArrayDisplay($vNo2, "vNo2 display") ;Local $hWnd = DllOpen("E:\CV-Dell-1\autoit3\myComObj1.dll") Local $hWnd = ObjCreate("myComObj1.clsMath") if (@error) Then MsgBox (0, "Error", "Error1 = " & @error) Exit EndIf ;function call method - DllCall with function name ;Local $aRes = DllCall($hWnd, "int", "addNosA", "int", $vNo1, "int", $vNo2) ;Local $aRes = DllCall($hWnd, "Ptr", "sortNos", "Array", $vNo1, "Array", $vNo2) ;function call method - $hWnd.<function name> ;Local $aRes = $hWnd.add2NosA($vNo1, $vNo2) ; this works fine with ObjCreate Local $aRes = $hWnd.sortNos($vNo1, $vNo2) if (@error) Then MsgBox (0, "Error", "Error2 = " & @error) DllClose($hWnd) Exit EndIf ;use appropriate msgbox ;MsgBox(0,"Result", "Result = " & $vNo1[0]) MsgBox(0,"Result", "Result = " & $aRes) _ArrayDisplay($vNo1, "vNo1 display") _ArrayDisplay($aRes , "aRes display") DllClose($hWnd) My VB.Net - ClassLibrary - Dll - COM obj is as follows - has 2 functions - add2NosA and sortNos:
      <ComClass(clsMath.ClassId, clsMath.InterfaceId, clsMath.EventsId)> Public Class clsMath Public Const ClassId As String = "3A42F85E-24C8-4BAA-91B5-AE56C4683C13" Public Const InterfaceId As String = "D99D7C79-2BA7-4A33-B7BC-9B7F19FDF828" Public Const EventsId As String = "CA128AC4-580C-4112-9EAD-8D1599E3F37A" Public Sub New() MyBase.New() End Sub Public Function add2NosA(ByVal no1 As Integer, ByVal no2 As Integer) As Integer Return (no1 + no2) End Function Public Sub sortNos(ByRef no1 As Array, ByRef no2 As Array) Array.Sort(no1) no2 = no1 End Sub End Class  Over all I tried various 8 options mentioned in the attached Excel file - with only 1 combination working.
      Overall could not make Array returned capture in AutoIt script. 
      Can someone help please?
      Thanks in  advance.

      I have create a function in FreeBasic like below:
      Extern "Windows-MS" Type tA f1 As Integer f2 As Integer End Type Public Function _switchOrder(ByVal no1 As Integer, ByVal no2 As Integer) As tA Export Dim result As Integer Dim taa As tA taa.f1 = no2 taa.f2 = no1 Return taa End Function End Extern Caller AutoIt code is:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Global Const $sTag_ftdi_version_info="struct; int no1a; int no2a; endstruct" Local $aRet=DllCall("Math1.dll","Ptr","_switchOrder", "Int", 10, "Int", 30) ;MsgBox (0,"",@error & "-" & $aRet[0] & "-" & $aRet[1]& "-" & $aRet[2]) Local $t_ftdi_version_info=DllStructCreate($sTag_ftdi_version_info,$aRet[0]) MsgBox (0,"msg1=",@error & "---" & $aRet[0] & "-" & $aRet[1]& "-" & $aRet[2]) ;Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"",1) Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"no1a") MsgBox (0,"msg2=",@error & "--" & $retData1) ;Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"",2) Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"no2a") MsgBox (0,"msg2=",@error & "--" & $retData1) ;ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"",2) & "--" & @error) ;ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"no2a") & @CRLF) ;ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tversion_str,1) & @CRLF) Getting error 2 for DllStructGetData or it give Close Application AutoIt popup message. 
      Certainly DllCall is not returning pointer to the Structure in $aRet[0] hence issue.
      Can someone help me fix this please?
      Thanks in advance.

      This simple dllcall gives me error 5, access denied,
      Func _WinAPI_VkKeyScan($__key) _WinAPI_SetLastError(0) $res = DllCall('User32.dll', 'SHORT', 'VkKeyScan', 'CHAR', $__key) _xConsole('res: '&$res) $_LastErr = _WinAPI_GetLastError() If $_LastErr <> 0 Then _xConsole('Err: {' & $_LastErr & '}> ' & _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage()) Return $res EndFunc Am i doing something wrong?
      Also tried VkKeyScanA and W

      This is relevant
      From here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3454315/is-it-possible-to-pin-a-dll-in-memory-to-prevent-unloading
      I use several UDFs on the Forum to do various things.  Those UDFs work very well.
      Effectively the UDFs are DLL wrappers, that make it possible to access DLL functions easily without the long hard slog of DLLCall() every time.
      However, I have now run into the issue that multiple UDF DLLCalls are slow. Not mind numbingly slow, but slow enough to become noticeable with a large of repeated function calls.
      So I was wondering, is it possible to "load a DLL into memory" and leave it there for the duration of my script's lifetime, avoid repeated DLL on-disk reads with a persistent in memory DLL?
      From Microsoft
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/dlls/about-dynamic-link-libraries
      Looks like what I want to do is: load-time dynamic linking,
      So next question, (a) how do I do this with AutoIt (b) How would this impact on standard AutoIt type DLL calls?
       
      The point is speed.  Is there a different approach?
      Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
