Odd problem with stdinwrite

Recommended Posts

OK so i'm trying to build a tool part of which adds a GUI to a command line tool.  my tests seemed to work fine but when i ported my function into a GUI they break, the first time i invoke the commandline it returns nothing, then each subsequent time i press the button that calls to command line it ignores the current command and re-sends the last command. if i press the button a second time the command updates.    IE let's say  i have a command line app with a counter as one of the inputs.


Press button to generate output -> "0" returned
Press Button again with same paramaters -> "Hello world 1" returned

Change counter to "2" press button  -> "Hello world 1" returned

press the button again ->  "Hello world 2" returned
 

THis was boggling my mind so i stripped out the GUI and took the function that was being called in the GUI and make it a hotkey call.   now the exact same code that calls the commandline has different behavior



Press hotkey to generate output -> "0" returned

Press hotkey again with same paramaters -> "Hello world 1" returned

Change counter to "2" press hotkey-> "Hello world 2" returned

 

 

So a hotkey act's "normally" bot only after the initial "0" is returned.

 

if I perform the function call for the command line before the hotkey while loop it functions properly the first time. :   This seems like some sort of autoit bug but i have no idea how to work around it. : example code

local $key      = ""

local $count    = 5

Local $cmd = Run("cmd.exe", @ScriptDir, @SW_SHOWNORMAL, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func btnGenOTPClick()
    $length = GUICtrlRead($txtLength)
    $count = GUICtrlRead($txtCounter)
    $Seed  = GUICtrlRead($txtSeed)
    $otp = runCommand($Seed,$length,$count)
    GUICtrlSetData($txtOutput,$otp & @CRLF, "|")

EndFunc

Func btnRandomSeedClick()
    GUICtrlSetData($txtKey,genKey(40))
EndFunc


func runCommand($s,$l,$c)
    ;build the command
    $command = "oathgen.exe -c " & $c & " -l " & $l &" -s " & $s & "& @CRLF
    ConsoleWrite("COMMAND: " & $command & @CRLF) ; debug check
    ;send command to the console
    StdinWrite($cmd, $command)
    $line = ""
    ;loops and gathers all the command output
    While True
        $line &=  StdoutRead($cmd)
        ConsoleWrite($line)  ;debug
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        ;to exit the while loop we look for the blank command prompt, the trimming is needed to get a clean match.
        If StringRight($line,StringLen(@ScriptDir) + 1) = @ScriptDir & ">" Then ExitLoop
        Sleep(30)
    WEnd
        
        ;i do some parsing here of the output then return it , that all works fine
    

EndFunc



Basically where i'm calling StdinWrite($cmd, $command) i can see that $command is what i want it to be,  but the first time it runs nothing is sent and the second time you press the button the command is correct but it actually sends the *old* command to standard in . This is only when running in a GUI though. if you lop out the runCommand function and run it just in a script it works as expected

      where this tool can get the class for the current focus control and play a sound from a folder
      i've added all the knowne classes, but i found some problems i hope any one can help me.
      this is the code that i created

      Update: Download the latest version here.
      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.

      Buttons on GUI to perform different tasks. SETUP is a task that involves displaying another GUI, doing calculations, writing lines to 2 external files, displaying information on GUI labels.  The info from the displayed GUI (quantity made and job completed YES or NO) must be included on the written lines. I cannot get the script to run synchronously (waterfall execution 1st one ends before 2nd one starts.) That means lines written to the files do not contain the required data.  I have read through FORUM and thought by inserting a boolean value and changing TRUE FALSE that I could solve this issue. I would have to set/reset the boolean before every function call to make it work. I've tried using Sleep but that just slows everything down and makes main GUI look unresponsive
      Is there a trick or tip someone can provide that forces synchronous execution?
      I am using OPT GUIOnEventMode
      Thank you for any insight into this issue.

      Hello everyone,
      I encountered this strange issue while working on a freelance project, I cannot give you the webpage/website on which this is happening because it is an internal site which is inaccessible externally. I am attempting to create a GUI with an IE control embedded in it, but when I navigate to the desired address, it shows a blank white page.
      The webpage does load if I use a different browser or normal (non-embedded) IE instance.
      I managed to get my hands on the source of the blank page:
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html> <head> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="res://ieframe.dll/ErrorPageTemplate.css" /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <title>Navigationen blev annulleret</title> <script src="res://ieframe.dll/errorPageStrings.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> </script> <script src="res://ieframe.dll/httpErrorPagesScripts.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> </script> </head> <body onLoad="javascript:navCancelInit(); "> <table width="730" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"> <!-- Error title --> <tr> <td id="infoIconAlign" width="60" align="left" valign="top" rowspan="2"> <img src="res://ieframe.dll/info_48.png" id="infoIcon" alt="Oplysningsikon"> </td> <td id="mainTitleAlign" valign="middle" align="left" width="*"> <h1 id="mainTitle">Navigationen til websiden blev annulleret</h1> </td> </tr> <tr> <!-- This row is for HTTP status code, as well as the divider--> <td id="errorCodeAlign" class="errorCodeAndDivider" align="right">&nbsp; <div class="divider"></div> </td> </tr> <!-- Error Body --> <!-- What you can do --> <tr> <td> &nbsp; </td> <td id="whatToTryAlign" valign="top" align="left"> <h2 id="whatToTry">Prøv at:</h2> </td> </tr> <!-- refresh page --> <tr> <td > &nbsp; </td> <td id="refreshPageAlign" align="left" valign="middle"> <h4> <table> <tr> <td valign="top"> <img src="res://ieframe.dll/bullet.png" border="0" alt="" class="actionIcon"> </td> <td valign="top"> <span id="navCancelContainer"></span><noscript id="refreshPage">Opdatere siden.</noscript> </td> </tr> </table> </h4> </td> </tr> </table> </body> </html> The ieframe.dll resources are a point of interest. I am not sure how the server is able to detect the embedded instance of IE ...
      Any suggestions? Here is a basic outline of the script:
      #include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Main() While True Sleep(1000) WEnd Func Main() ; Create GUI $hGUI = GUICreate("", $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT, $iLeft, $iTop, $WS_POPUP) $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() ;$oIE = _IECreate() ; This works, but it is not embedded in the GUI GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT) GUISetState() ; Navigate to the URL and authenticate _IENavigate($oIE, $URL) EndFunc Thank you for the advice in advance!
