passing a value between Autoit3 and a .bat script

3 posts in this topic

Here is my simple hello.bat file

echo "hello"
pause
set I
pause
set IAMvalue="hello"
pause
set I
pause
exit 1

and my even simpler autoit3 script

EnvSet("IAMvalue","first")
$res=RunWait("HELLO.bat")
If $res=1 Then MsgBox(0,"", EnvGet("IAMvalue"))

The value "first" appears in the batch script which changes it to "hello"

but the msgbox displays the value "first", so the changed value does not survive the exit from the batch script.

Is there a way to pass a value from AutoIT3 to a batch script, and return a changed value ?

To my small extent of knowledge this isnt possible using strictly variables. Maybe the STDRead/Write commands may help.

Also piping the output to a file and then working from there may be useful.

One other thing I feel would be useful to point out is that AutoIt should be able to perform any operation you are having performed by a .bat script.

Thanks for the info. :o

I was calling someone else's .bat script but found it easier to rewrite in AutoIT3 than try to get the variable passing to work B)
