define variables as parameters

Recommended Posts


Hello guys!

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

$iBenutzername =  $Var_cmdline   ; I need this to be the variable given as a parameter. 
                                 ; I've read alot about CmdLine but can't think of a way to define a variable with it
                                 ; I hope you have an Idea on how to do it! Much love <3
Global $sFile = "C:\GTScript\query.txt"
Global $aUsers
_FileReadToArray($sFile, $aUsers, $FRTA_NOCOUNT)
_ArrayColInsert($aUsers, 1)
_ArrayColInsert($aUsers, 1)
_ArrayColInsert($aUsers, 1)
_ArrayColInsert($aUsers, 1)
_ArrayColInsert($aUsers, 1)
_ArrayColInsert($aUsers, 1)
For $i = 0 To UBound($aUsers) - 1
    $aSplit = StringRegExp($aUsers[$i][0], "(\S+)", $STR_REGEXPARRAYGLOBALMATCH)
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aSplit)-1
        $aUsers[$i][$j] =$aSplit[$j]


Func _FindUserID($aArray,$sSearch)
    Local $iRow=_ArraySearch($aArray,$sUser)
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error,-1,'')
    Local $sID=$aArray[$iRow][2]
    Return SetError(0,$iRow,$sID)

MsgBox(64,'Searcher UserID '&$sUser,_FindUserID($aUsers,$sUser))

Here's a small example :) 

If $cmdline[0] <> 2 Then ; <-- I expect exactly two parameters
    MsgBox(64, "", "Please give your first name and last name as two parameters.")

$firstname = $cmdline[1]
$lastname = $cmdline[2]

MsgBox(64, "Hi!", "When I say " & $firstname & ", you say " & $lastname & "! Heeey, hooo!" & @CRLF)

/edit: compile to scriptname.exe, then run "scriptname.exe myFirstName myLastName".

@SadBunny Thank you alot! That is exactly what I needed! With your help I am now able to read the ID of a user, given as parameter, and then combine it with logoff and my backup script!

      I've ported these two functions from PHP to AU3 to work with URLs.
      Made them for those who work with libraries like HTTP.au3 (not the one I coded), that needs passing the server domain, path, etc., instead of the full URL.
      Grab the lib here.
      ParseURL( $sURL )
      Parses the URL and splits it into defined parts. Returns an array:
      [0] = Full URL (same as $sURL) [1] = Protocol (i.e.: http, https, ftp, ws...) [2] = Domain [3] = Port (or null if not specified) [4] = Path (or null if not specified) [5] = Query string (everything after the ? - or null if not specified) Example:
      $aExample = ParseURL("https://google.com:8080/?name=doe") MsgBox(0, "Test", "URL: " & $aExample[0] & @CRLF & _ "Protocol: " & $aExample[1] & @CRLF & _ "Domain: " & $aExample[2] & @CRLF & _ "Port: " & $aExample[3] & @CRLF & _ "Path: " & $aExample[4] & @CRLF & _ "Query string: " & $aExample[5])  
      ParseStr( $sStr )
      Parses a query string (similar to the [5] of the previous function) and returns a multidimensional array, where:
      [0][0] = number of variables found [0][1] = ununsed [1][0] = key name of the first variable [1][1] = first variable value (already URL decoded) [n][0] = key name of the nth variable [n][1] = nth variable value (already URL decoded) Example:
      include <Array.au3> ; need only to do _ArrayDisplay, not needed by the lib _ArrayDisplay(ParseStr("foo=bar&test=lol%20123")) #cs Result is: [0][0] = 2 [0][1] = ununsed [1][0] = foo [1][1] = bar [2][0] = test [2][1] = lol 123 #ce Feel free to fork!

      Hi Everyone
      I want to have a GUI, but which will accept command line options on launch.
      So, the commanline would look something like
      myAPP.EXE -bigfont -bigicon
      where myAPP.EXE would be the name of the AutoIt EXE, and the -bigfont & -bigicon items represent optional command line parameters with which the EXE starts.
      I am not looking at creating a CUI.  This is GUI, but with startup command line parameters.  These command line parameters would only be read once, during start up of the EXE.
      I have searched the forum, no luck.  What I did find was this commented by Water: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/138754-adding-command-line-parameter/
      Should I start the GUI EXE as normal, and then first possible opportunity read the command line? Is that the way to go?
      Thanks in advance

      I'm working on a program with a colleague. He wants to create a function which takes 3 parameters and then loop through two arrays which I think we can do well enough. However, we want this to be attached to a GUI form we've built so when the user clicks a button, it will invoke the function which then takes the local variables as the parameters for the function and executes it.
      I know that GUICtrlSetOnEvent can't take parameters, but is there a way to get around this and make this work?

      Each time I want try a Command Line Tool I don't remember his switchs !

      So I have made this little utility :

      Get command line parameters Utility v1.0.2.3

      The difficulty is they don't answer the same way or not at all !
      Script start by trying common switches by 2 ways and leaves you try manually after.
      You also have the possibility to use an embeded Dos Prompt instead of the edit box.
      In all cases you can create a text file for save infos.
      Type "ESC" for quit at any time.
      A first run compiled is needed for install a contextual menu for exefile.

      As usual externals files are downloaded at first execution.
      See Tray menu for options.

      Previous downloads : 628

      Update 2012-06-30

      Source : GetCommandLineParameters v1.0.2.3.au3
      executable : GetCommandLineParameters.exe.html
      (Once this html file downloaded, double click on it for start the download)
      Sure it will help you !
