Hello, i'm trying to rename a variable to another variable name (not the value attached to the variable). This would save me TONS of coding.
Here is an example:
Local $clear1="$SATJ" ;sets the $clear1 variable to become $SATJ
GUICtrlSetState($clear1 & "3", $GUI_UNCHECKED) ;i want this to come out to be $SATJ3, it should look something like - GUICtrlSetState($SATJ3, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
I've already tried
any help is greatly appreciated!!!
Hi, I have a software which has a 'run file'-ie; when i double click on that file, the input file of the software is run by the software. I wish to double click/execute this run file using autoit. how do i achieve this. i opened the software and it shows the input file and run file in same folder, i will put my autoitscript file too in same location. how do i simulate double clicking the run file (using its file name, say - abc.run ). I entered the following lines to make software window active - it became active, dont know how to go forward
controlclick("program title","abc.run",1000,"primary",2) ; 1000 is ctrl id
following my previous question, I have moved all potentially instable object interactions into Executes. But it Looks like "="-assignments to object Attributes cannot be done with Execute, only method calls. Using an "$obj = 1" construct, it compares (Eval) instead of sets (Execute) the value.
I have tested multiple different combinations, using Execute and Assign, but it seems not to work with object Attributes. :-(
Gives following Output:
The assign Action using apply (a3) Fails, while assigning it directly, without Assign() works fine.
The execute versions compare and do not assign, in both cases. Though, the "Execute" topic in the help file says it executes, not evaluates.
I have found a similar, old thread, which explains this behavious but does not give a solution. https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/110228-pass-object-property-as-a-variable/
Is there a way to assign to a com object's Attribute? Or is there anything new to this unexpected behaviour of Execute (at least compared to the help file description and Python's exec).
Any help is appreciated, and thank you for all the help so far.
I've written the code below which launches chrome in incognito mode and then proceeds to go to the autoit website.
From my understanding, the Run() command is also supposed to output the PID number related to the application that got launched from the Run command.
However when I run the below lines, it outputs a PID number that is different from the newly launched chrome browser's PID number, does anyone know why and possibly explain how I could retrieve the accurate PID number associated with the newly launched browser?
Global $iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c start chrome.exe https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/ -incognito' ,"", "") msgbox(0,"",$iPid) Thank you,
Howdy, this is my first post, massive fan of autoit.
I've searched and tried and I would just like people who are better at this than me to let me know if this is even a thing.
I'd like to perform just a variable. For example, it would be. *see inserted code*
So what i'm wanting is, create the constant $test, and that variable would be what is followed after the = . Then perform the _FileCreate. Then perform the variable. Logically or in my head rather.. That variable is declared and is equal to what it is set to above, therefore just placing the variable plainly in the script, it should be equal to what it was declared as. So what am I doing wrong, and or how can I have autoit just perform the variable.
#include <File.au3> Const $test = FileWriteLine(@DesktopDir & "\Log.txt", @CRLF ) _FileCreate(@DesktopDir & "\Log.txt") $test
