In this post I take the opportunity to show the awesome capabilities of AutoIt and its libraries. My open source project Peace is a long running AutoIt based app located on SourceForge. It provides users with a system-wide equalizer and effects machine. It's an interface using the power of Equalizer APO, an audio processing object software. Peace has been download over 1,100,000 times by various kind of users. Amongst others it gives them possibilities like these:
Hearing impaired - Amplify the gain of frequencies which are impaired. Home Theatre - Create Equalizer presets for watching movies and listening to music. Music lovers & audiophiles - Create presets for listening to music on their high quality speakers and headphones. Gamers - Enhance frequencies to get an edge over other gamers. Headphones - Improve the sound quality of cheap headphones and get the max out of expensive ones. Bass lovers - Boost low frequencies for extra bass. Voice - Make a microphone sound better and improve the voice, for instance for YouTube usage. Low audio - Boost low audio of an input source to a comfortable level. This list covers the main needs of the Peace user. Many people have contacted me over the years asking for new features and telling me how they use Peace for their (sometimes specific) needs. I was able to use AutoIt and its libraries for all of their needs. So what are the main features of Peace?
Equalize your computer audio by using up to 31 sliders. Support of equalizing 9 speakers : left/right, center, subwoofer, left/right rear, left/right side. Per slider a filter can be chosen such as peak, low/high pass, shelving. The graph windows shows your equalization so you see exactly what you're doing. Apply an effect such as crossfeed simple/Jan Meier/Chu Moy, stereo balance, bass/treble, upmix/downmix, channel routing. Save presets (called configurations) and activate by mouse click, hotkey, desktop shortcut or Peace system tray. Select a target device to equalize, microphone as input can also be equalized. Automate: you can let Peace automatically activate presets on a switch to another device and another process. Peace is available in these languages: English, Czech, Deutsch, Français, Italiano, Nederlands, Pусский, Українська So who am I? I'm a Dutch programmer who happens the stumble upon AutoIt 5 years ago and created a small Equalizer interface app of less than 400 program lines with it. Nowadays Peace has grown to more than 17,000 lines as many features were added. Although Peace is open source, the program code isn't of the best possible quality. The reason being that I didn't expect it to become so popular. It caught me by supprise. I've created a Library of functions called Pal (link to forum post) which quality is up to the AutoIt community standard as counterpart to the Peace program code.
I want to state here that AutoIt is a mature program language as Peace obviously shows. I wish it to be used more extensively for professional or semi-professional apps. In my view AutoIt deserves a place amongst the major programming languages for Windows computers.
This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.19 contains 194 functions divided into these topics:
window and screen mouse and GUI GUI controls logics and mathematics string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.
This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
Case $listEdition ; handle of the list local $index=0 $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition) ; This will return the text in the list ; ============== The loop below always fails ================== ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ??????? For $i = 0 To $editionArray - 1 ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray contains total count of items If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then $index = $i exitloop EndIf Next ;=================================================== ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition: " & $item & " index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
_GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
Another problem is on the list. It also populate the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
Please advise and thanks
is it possible to make a wall chams in rainbow six siege using autoit scripts? tell me please and how .
Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open. So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal. What could be the problem here. please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.
