command prompt shows up at compiled code

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am working on a application with a GUI and command prompt in 1.

Currently my code looks this simple >

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=y
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

But when I compile this and run the compiled version there is also a command prompt shown. But I don't want this.

Besides that, I also want it to be possible when I run my script from the command prompt, the program will give feedback in the command prompt where it was started from. With the setup above. This is possible with the ConsoleWrite command. 

Is it possible to hide the command prompt one way or another when I start the GUI? Or do I have to change my script?

I hope someone can help me.

Regards,
lrstndm

When I do that and I run the program from the command line it starts the GUI and does not post the ConsoleWrite to the command prompt. That is my problem.

You have 2 choices, run it as a GUI program, or run it as a CUI program with a command window, there's no way to hide the window at program start. Instead of using a console window for consolewrites, open a second GUI with an edit control in it and write the text into THAT instead of the console window that you don't need.

Try this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=n
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <Process.au3>
#include <WinAPIProc.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

If _ProcessGetName(_WinAPI_GetParentProcess(@AutoItPID)) = "cmd.exe" Then ;hide CMD window when started not in CMD
    ConsoleWrite("Started from cmd box" & @CRLF)
Else
    $var = WinList()
    For $i = 1 To $var[0][0]
        If $var[$i][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($var[$i][1]), 2) Then
            If WinGetProcess($var[$i][0], "") = @AutoItPID Then
                WinSetState($var[$i][1], "", @SW_HIDE)
                ExitLoop
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
    MsgBox(0, "Info", "Started from windows explorer task", 10)
EndIf

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 192, 124)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

      Hi guys,
      So I am facing an issue with my Listview control flickering like crazy when using the Modern GUI UDF.
      I understand that the reson is because Listviews do not play nice with the $WS_EX_COMPOSITED extended style which is necessary to prevent the rest of the GUI components flickering on resizing.
      I am looking for suggestions on how I can overcome the flickering issue without having to remove the Listview header (as I need the header to allow column resizing and sorting).
      The reproducer is here and the lightly modified Modern GUI UDF is attached as a zip (I added $WS_CLIPCHILDREN and $WS_EX_COMPOSITED to the _Metro_CreateGUI() function in order to stop flickering of other controls like buttons/labels/toggles etc).
      ;!Highly recommended for improved overall performance and responsiveness of the GUI effects etc.! (after compiling): #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y #Au3Stripper_Parameters=/so /rm /pe ;Required if you want High DPI scaling enabled. (Also requries _Metro_EnableHighDPIScaling()) #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=y #include-once #NoTrayIcon #include "MetroGUI-UDF\MetroGUI_UDF.au3" #include <GuiListView.au3> $gui = _Metro_CreateGUI("example", 800, 600, -1, -1, True) ;Add/create control buttons to the GUI $Control_Buttons = _Metro_AddControlButtons(True, True, True, True, False) ;CloseBtn = True, MaximizeBtn = True, MinimizeBtn = True, FullscreenBtn = True, MenuBtn = True ;Set variables for the handles of the GUI-Control buttons. (Above function always returns an array this size and in this order, no matter which buttons are selected. $GUI_CLOSE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[0] $GUI_MAXIMIZE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[1] $GUI_RESTORE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[2] $GUI_MINIMIZE_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[3] $GUI_FULLSCREEN_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[4] $GUI_FSRestore_BUTTON = $Control_Buttons[5] ;====================================================================================================================================================================== $Button1 = _Metro_CreateButtonEx("Add new item(s)", 20, 20, 130, 50) $Button2 = _Metro_CreateButtonEx("Edit item(s)", 170, 20, 130, 50) $ListView2 = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 0, 86, 800, 400, BitOR($LVS_REPORT, $LVS_SHOWSELALWAYS), $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE) _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($ListView2, BitOR($LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER, $LVS_EX_GRIDLINES, $LVS_EX_SUBITEMIMAGES, $LVS_EX_FLATSB)) For $i = 0 to 8 _GUICtrlListView_AddColumn($ListView2, "col " &$i) Next _GUICtrlListView_SetBkColor($ListView2, 0xF3F3F3) _GUICtrlListView_SetTextBkColor($ListView2, 0xF3F3F3) ;Set resizing options for the controls so they don't change in size or position.

      Good morning community!
      I was working on a script which read the content of a .ini file to retrieve the file that has to open, and, based on the value of a second key stored in the .ini file, set the window on top, minimized or maximized...
      I did something like this, but seems to not work properly...
      Could anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thank you

      Good morning AutoIt community!
      Today, I'm here to ask you if you know how to run an .exe from cmd.exe ( Command Prompt )...
      My intention is to read a .ini file where I store an information that has to be included in the shell, and run an .exe with that information...
      I'll give you an example
      Local $aFileCartellaAuditCopy = _FileListToArray($sPercorsoAuditCopy, "*.txt") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la lettura della lista dei file nella directory" & @CRLF & $sPercorsoAuditCopy & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Return False Else Local $iPID = Run("cmd.exe" & ' /k "C:\Users\Portatile-60\Desktop\HmiCheckLogIntegrity.exe" "C:\Users\Portatile-60\Desktop\AuditTrailDosaggio0_20170327_151335_DOSAGGIO_PW_01.txt"') ; & " /k " & '"' & $sHmiCheckLogIntegrity & '"' & " " & '"' & $sPercorsoAuditCopy & "\" & $aFileCartellaAuditCopy[1] & '"', "", @SW_SHOW, $STDOUT_CHILD) Return True EndIf This code is in a function, that returns False if it can retrive at least a file from the path stored in the .ini file...
      Else
      I would like to run the Command Prompt with the .exe and with a parameter of that .exe, but it seems to not work properly.

      Could please anyone tell me why?

      Thanks
