WinGetCaretPost and Google Chrome

1 post in this topic

Greetings!

Func caretPlay ()
    activateWindow ()
    WinActivate ($workSpace)
    Local $myCaret = WinGetCaretPos ()
    _ArrayDisplay ($myCaret)
EndFunc


Func activateWindow ()
   $workSpace = WinGetHandle ("Login - Google Chrome")
   WinActivate ($workSpace)
   $dimensions =  WinGetClientSize ($workSpace)
   $midPoint = $dimensions[1]/2
EndFunc

Those are two little functions in a larger app I am building.  When I run the "caretPlay" function it returns the same values of 0,0 regardless of where I position the caret. I did read on the function reference page for WinGetCaretPos that applications with Multiple Document Interfaces (MDIs) may not return accurate values. I tried all three options for the CaretCoordMode option with no change in results.

Either I am doing something wrong or Google Chrome isn't meant to work with this function. Any advice as to which it is?

Thanks!

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      Google account. oAuth.au3 Download 3. Possibilities
      ;============================================================================================================ ; Date: 2018-02-10, 14:21 ; ; Description: UDF for authorize your app with oAuth 2.0 Google. ; ; Function(s): ; oAuth2GetAuthorizationCode() -> Get Code for "grant". ; oAuth2GetAccessToken() -> Get "access_token" and "refresh_token" first time. ; oAuth2RefreshAccessToken() -> Get current "access_token" using "refresh_token". ; ; Author(s): Ascer ;============================================================================================================ 4. Enable your Google API.
          4.1. Video Tutorial not mine!
       YouTube     4.2 Screenshots from authorization process (Polish language) 
      Go to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/dashboard and accept current rules.  

       
      Next create an new project  

       
      Enter name of you new project and click Create  

       
      Google will working now, please wait until finish. Next go to enable your API interface, we make if for Google  

       
      Take "Gmail" in search input and after click in found result.  

       
      Click Enable interface, Google will working now.  

       
      Create your login credentials  

       
      Select Windows Interface (combobox), User credentials (radio) and click button what is need bla bla  

       
      Type name of a new client id for oAuth 2.0 and click Create a new Client ID.  

       
      Next configure screen aplication, type some name and click Next. Google will working now.  

       
      Last step on this website is download source with your credentials in *Json format.  

       
      Now you received a file named client_id.json, it's how it look in Sublime Text:  

       
      5. Coding.
      Now we need to call a some function to get access code.  
      #include <oAuth.au3> Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" oAuth2GetAuthorizationCode($sClientId, $sRedirectUri)  
      Function will execute default browser for ask you to permission.  

       
      Next Google ask you to permission for access to your personal details by application Autoit   

       
      Now you can thing is something wrong but all is ok, you need to copy all after  code= . It your access code.  

       
      Let's now ask Google about our Access Token and Refresh Token  
      #include <oAuth.au3> Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sClientSecret = "cWalvFr3WxiE6cjUkdmKEPo8" Local $sAuthorizationCode = "4/AAAPXJOZ-Tz0s6mrx7JbV6nthXSfcxaszFh_aH0azVqHkSHkfiwE8uamcabn4eMbEWg1eAuUw7AU0PQ0XeWUFRo#" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" Local $aRet = oAuth2GetAccessToken($sClientId, $sClientSecret, $sAuthorizationCode, $sRedirectUri) If Ubound($aRet) <> 4 then ConsoleWrite("+++ Something wrong with reading ResponseText." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ConsoleWrite("Successfully received data from Google." & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("access_token: " & $aRet[0] & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("expires_in: " & $aRet[1] & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("refresh_token: " & $aRet[2] & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("token_type: " & $aRet[3] & @CRLF)  
      Important! When you received error 400 and output says: Invalid grant it means that your previous generated access_code lost validity and you need to generate new calling previus code. When everything is fine you should received a 4 informations about your: access_token, expires_in, refresh_token and token_type. Access_Token time is a little short so you need to know fuction possible to refresh it (tell Google that he should generate a new Token for you)  
      #include <oAuth.au3> Local $sRefreshToken = "1/ba8JpW7TjQH3-UI1BvPaXhSf-oTQ4BmZAbBfhcKgKfY" Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sClientSecret = "cWalvFr3WxiE6cjUkdmKEPo8" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" Local $aRet = oAuth2RefreshAccessToken($sRefreshToken, $sClientId, $sClientSecret) If Ubound($aRet) <> 3 then ConsoleWrite("+++ Something wrong with reading ResponseText." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ConsoleWrite("Successfully received data from Google." & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("access_token: " & $aRet[0] & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("expires_in: " & $aRet[1] & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("token_type: " & $aRet[2] & @CRLF)  
      6. Finish words
      If you followed all this above steps im sure that you received all informations required for coding your Google API (Gmail, Dropbox, YouTube, Calender etc. See next thread: [UDF] Gmail API - Email automation with AutoIt!

      It seems AutoIt for Chrome is no longer working.  It's not in Google Store so not able to enable.  I can download the crx and drag to chrome but I can't figure out any way to enable the extension.
