How do I add content to a ComboBox from an AD attribute?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Can someone help me with some code to get info from AD and into a ComboBox. I'm using this UDF:

How do you get AD user object with the StaffManager attributes = True? I think I have to use:

_AD_GetObjectsInOU($sOU[, $sFilter = "(name=*)"[, $iSearchScope = 2[, $sDataToRetrieve =  "sAMAccountName"[, $sSortBy = "sAMAccountName"[, $bCount = False[, $vReturnNull = True]]]]])

but I don't know how.

 


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Something like (untested):

$aObjects = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("", "(&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(StaffManager=True))", 2, "sAMAccountName,distinguishedName,displayname", "displayname")

Func Main()
    _AD_Open()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example")
    GUICtrlCreateCombo("Sample Combo", 250, 80, 120, 100)
    $aObject = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("","(&(objectclass=person)(StaffManager=True))",2,"sAMAccountName,distinguishedName,displayname", "displayname")
    _ArrayDisplay($aObject,"")

    Local $idOK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 310, 370, 85, 25)
    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $idOK
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "test")
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
    _AD_Close()
EndFunc

I tried this, but I don't get anything in the _arrayDisplay.

 

SOLVED: I need to use big letters in the "True". Like this "TRUE"

What's the value of @error and @extended after _AD_GetObjectsInOU?

I fixed it. I just needed to use "TRUE" instead.

 

But how do I add the result into my ComboBox?

Use GUICtrlSetData as seen in the example for GUICtrlCreateCombo.

I've looked at GUICtrlSetData and I understand that input should be with the pipe character (|) as separator.

In the _AD_GetObjectsInOU remarks it says "Multi-value attributes are returned as a string with the pipe character (|) as separator".

So why does GUICtrlSetData not work?
 

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile=x86\Create Consultant.Exe
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <AD.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Main()

Func Main()
    _AD_Open()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example")
    Local $idComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Sample Combo", 250, 80, 120, 100)
    local $aObject = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("OU=Users,OU=so,OU=dk,OU=company,DC=AD,DC=company,DC=ORG","(&(objectclass=person)(StaffManager=TRUE))",2,"sAMAccountName,distinguishedName,displayname", "displayname")
    ; Add additional items to the combobox.
    GUICtrlSetData($idComboBox, $aObject, "")

    Local $idOK = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 310, 370, 85, 25)
    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)
    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
            Case $idOK
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "test")
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
    _AD_Close()
EndFunc

Is the _AD_GetObjectsInOU not separated with a pipe in this case?


Yours sincerely

It depends:

  • When a single attribute contains multiple values then you get a single entry in the array where the values are separated by the pipe character
  • When there are multiple attributes you get multiple entries in the returned array with the same attribute name

      Hey there!
       
      Is there a way to detect movement only for 1 specific window?

      HWnd is not really working, it still detects movement in all the windows within the region

      This is my script:
       
      ;Checksum actual HotKeySet("{f2}", 'exit_') MsgBox(0, '', '0') Beep(500, 2000) $Hwnd = WinActive('') while 1 $Checksum = PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) If PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) <> $Checksum Then For $i = 1 To 100 Beep(1000, 50) Next MsgBox(0, '', 'New message!', 1) EndIf WEnd Func exit_() Beep(500, 1000) Exit 0 EndFunc I just want to check whenever a message comes because the app i use doesn't give notifications properly.

      Any help is really appreciated!

      Can you please see whats wrong im doing in the below code? i can read few registry entry but not all for eg, i am able to get value of "Shell" Key from the registry path  but not AutoAdminLogon which has the value of "1", is there any change i have to do to read numeric values?
       Global  $shello = RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon","Shell" )
       ConsoleWrite("This is Hello"& $shello)
      above command returns proper value , but same command with AutoAdminLogon returns null as shown in below ? infact registry has the value of 1.

      Hello,
      I've been searching on how to select the first row in my database which includes a time column based on the latest start_time date for today's date.
      This is my current code:
      Local $iCurrentDate = _Now() Local $sqlHandle = _dbOpen($sDbPath) Local $aResult, $iRows, $iCols _SQLite_GetTable2d($sqlHandle, "SELECT start_time FROM " & $srawDb & " ORDER BY datetime(start_time) DESC LIMIT 1", $aResult, $iRows, $iCols) _ArrayDisplay($aResult) _dbClose($sDbpath) What it does is it gets the first row entry in the database however it does not select the latest start_time entry in the database, it always select the first row. I've tried changing DESC to ASC to see if that will do it but the issue still remains. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.
       
      *EDIT
      The date format in the database is by MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.
