API Upload XML WinHttp

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use Sendspace API for download and upload, until now i only have learned to get token, login and get session key. My next step is upload a file. But i have no idea how to do this part.

; try to upload something

; Specify the reguest to upload.getInfo:
Local $hRequest = _WinHttpOpenRequest($hConnect, Default, "/rest/?method=upload.getinfo&session_key=" & $SessonKey & "&speed_limit=0")

; Send request
Local $handle = _WinHttpSendRequest($hRequest)

; Wait for the response
Local $WaitRS = _WinHttpReceiveResponse($hRequest)

; Read Data
Local $sData = _WinHttpReadData($hRequest)
MsgBox(0, "Upload Data", $sData)
_filewrite($sData)

; Get all info needed from $sData

$URL = _StringBetween($sData, "<upload url=", "progress")
$sURL = $URL[0]

$MaxFileSize = _StringBetween($sData, "max_file_size=", "progress")
$sMaxFileSize = $MaxFileSize[0]

$Upload_Identifier = _StringBetween($sData, "upload_identifier=", "&amp")
$sUpload_Identifier = $Upload_Identifier[0]

$ExtraInfo = _StringBetween($sData, "extra_info=", "/>")
$sExtraInfo = $ExtraInfo[0]

;All well done until here

;Fill in form

$XML = '<form method="post" action="' & $sURL &  'enctype="multipart/form-data">' & @CRLF
$XML &= '<input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value=' & $sMaxFileSize & '>' & @CRLF
$XML &= '<input type="hidden" name="UPLOAD_IDENTIFIER" value=' & $sUpload_Identifier & '>' & @CRLF
$XML &= '<input type="hidden" name="extra_info" value=' & $sExtraInfo & '>' & @CRLF
$XML &= '<input type="file" name=' & "C:\Users\Arlen\Desktop\premisa mrotal.txt" & '>' & @CRLF
$XML &= '</form>'
MsgBox(0,"", $XML)

; Now how do i send it? Is it correct?


_WinHttpCloseHandle($hRequest)
_WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect)
_WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen)

It looks good, but for some reason i get this code error: 5 API_ERROR_BAD_API_VERSION Unknown or unsupported API version

You can check it out on the pdf, i also send them support ticket, waiting for response

As a side note, you should learn how to better take advantage of the language you use. For example by writing more generic functions and using them in your code. One good function would be to parse simple xml data that the API returns instead of using _StringBetween() like you do. If I were you I would write this function:

Func ReadXMLData($sXML, $sTag)
    Local $aData = StringRegExp($sXML, "(?si)<\s*" & $sTag & "(?:[^\w])\s*(.*?)(?:(?:<\s*/" & $sTag & "\s*>)|\Z)", 3)
    If @error Then Return ""
    Return $aData[0]
EndFunc

...and then use it like this:

$sToken = ReadXMLData($sData, "token")
;...
$sSessionKey = ReadXMLData($sData, "session_key")
;...
$sUploadData = ReadXMLData($sData, "upload")
;...and then:
$MAX_FILE_SIZE = __WinHttpAttribVal($sUploadData, "max_file_size")
$UPLOAD_IDENTIFIER = __WinHttpAttribVal($sUploadData, "upload_identifier")
$sExtraInfo = __WinHttpAttribVal($sUploadData, "extra_info")
;...

 

Also, I would use _WinHttpSimpleFormFill() for every step/method. Starting from auth.createtoken through auth.login and all the way to upload.getInfo before uploading the file. That way you could switch to https with no trouble (or changes to the code) because form filling function handles all protocols in a seamless way.

Thank you so much this will be very useful for me and save time!

I have one more question. How can i upload and at the same time get the progressbar working, since i have to wait for it to upload first to continue with the script. Ty

You will always have to wait for upload to finish before continuing in AutoIt. The language isn't capable for parallel executions.

What I can do is add new function to WinHttp.au3 that could be used to set callback function that would be called during upload process periodically, in which you could control/update progress bar or whatever.
Yea, I think I'll do that.

Ok, done. The example would be:

#include "WinHTTP.au3"

$sAddress = "https://posttestserver.com/post.php?dir=WinHttp" ; the address of the target (https or http, makes no difference - handled automatically)

; Select some file
$sFileToUpload = FileOpenDialog("Select file to upload...", "", "All Files (*)")
If Not $sFileToUpload Then Exit 5 ; check if the file is selected and exit if not

$sForm = _
        '<form action="' & $sAddress & '" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">' & _
        ' <input type="file" name="upload"/>' & _
        '</form>'

; Initialize and get session handle
$hOpen = _WinHttpOpen()

$hConnect = $sForm ; will pass form as string so this is for coding correctness because $hConnect goes in byref

; Creates progress bar window
ProgressOn("UPLOADING", $sFileToUpload, "0%")

; Register callback function
_WinHttpSimpleFormFill_SetCallback(UploadCallback)

; Fill form
$sHTML = _WinHttpSimpleFormFill($hConnect, $hOpen, _
        Default, _
        "name:upload", $sFileToUpload)
; Collect error number
$iErr = @error

; Unregister callback function
_WinHttpSimpleFormFill_SetCallback(0)

; Kill progress bar window
ProgressOff()

; Close handles
_WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect)
_WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen)

If $iErr Then
    MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Error number = " & $iErr)
Else
    ConsoleWrite($sHTML & @CRLF)
    MsgBox(4096, "Success", $sHTML)
EndIf



; Callback function. For example, update progress control
Func UploadCallback($iPrecent)
    If $iPrecent = 100 Then
        ProgressSet(100, "Done", "Complete")
        Sleep(800) ; give some time for the progress bar to fill-in completely
    Else
        ProgressSet($iPrecent, $iPrecent & "%")
    EndIf
EndFunc

And the latest (working version of) WinHttp.au3 is at https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dragana-r/autoit-winhttp/master/WinHttp.au3

Try it, maybe I leave it in.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks

      is it possible to make a wall chams in rainbow six siege using autoit scripts? tell me please and how . 
    • By Rskm
      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi everyone!

      I'm using AutoIt for several years now and I really get the hang of it!
      I'm quite the curious OCD perfectionist kind of guy, so I can't help wondering..
      what would be the best way to program stuff for the compiler / interpreter / scripting engine?
      We're talking about the inner workings of the AutoIt's core here, and how to give it as less friction as possible but also take care of the machine running the script.
      For example,
      Imagine a script where we would constantly have to assign a Boolean value to a variable:
      ; A: local $bool = false $bool = true $bool = true $bool = false ; B: local $bool = false check(true) check(true) check(false) func check($b) if $bool = $b then return $bool = $b endfunc In this case, would it be better to just overwrite (A) the variable or first check if we really need to (B)?
      What would be best for the computers memory if it had to do this for a year non stop?
      Another example, imagine you're writing a function with an if statement.
      If you would look under the hood of AutoIt, what would be the best way to give your computer as less work / code nesting stack filling as possible:
      ; A: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something else ;do something else endif endfunc ; B: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something return endif ;do something else endfunc Last one for now:
      ; A: while 1 ; do stuff wend ; B: while true ; do stuff wend Isn't AutoIt taking an extra step in converting 1 to a Boolean in example (A)?
      Or is it the other way around and does the (B) way make AutoIt first convert a keyword (true or false) to a numerical value (0 or 1).
      I think this kinda detail stuff is quite interesting, makes me wonder how AutoIt converts and runs our code.
      What are your opinions on this topic?
      Any coders who know more about the inner workings of AutoIt?
      Any people like me who ask themselves similar questions (with examples)?

      Let me know! 😉
