Read of an AD attribute of Octet String syntax

17 posts in this topic

How do you read AD attribute: thumbnailPhoto and show the picture? It is a syntax of octet string.

I have no code for this.


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

I read it and I could see some code to retrive data, but how do I show the picture?

 

#include <AD.au3>
#include <File.au3>

_AD_Open()
If @error Then Exit
$ThumbNailPhoto = _AD_GetObjectAttribute(@UserName, "thumbnailPhoto")
If @error Then $ThumbNailPhoto = ""
_AD_Close()

No idea :(
But there are a lot of C# or PowerShell examples available on the web. Maybe one of them fits your needs.

From what I was reading, the file format is jpg, so I would think it would be possible to either write to a file and/or use GDI+ to display it...but I also don't have the know-how to create a script (to do the GDI+ part at least.)

Probably not required but thought I'd share my solution.

#include <AD.au3>
Opt('ExpandVarStrings', 1)
_ADO_USERIMAGE()
Func _ADO_USERIMAGE()
    Local $oADO_USERIMAGE, $hOPN_THUMBNAIL
    Local $sPIC_USERIMAGE = '@AppDataDir@\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\UserTile.jpg'
    _AD_Open()
        $oADO_USERIMAGE = _AD_GetObjectAttribute(@UserName, 'thumbnailPhoto')
            If @error Then Exit
        $hOPN_THUMBNAIL = FileOpen($sPIC_USERIMAGE, 26)
        FileWrite($hOPN_THUMBNAIL, $oADO_USERIMAGE)
        FileClose($hOPN_THUMBNAIL)
    _AD_Close()
EndFunc

Sorry for my very late reply, but how do I use that function?


Yours sincerely

Subz's function grabs the thumbnailPhoto property and writes it to "@AppDataDir@\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\UserTile.jpg".

No parameters needed. Just call the function.

No "usertitle.jpg" file is created in "@AppDataDir@\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures"

 

Is this correct:
"@AppDataDir@" ?


Yours sincerely

Sorry forgot to put in 

Opt('ExpandVarStrings', 1) which allows you to use @AppDataDir in a string like "@AppDataDir@\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\UserTile.jpg".

Check.

It works now.

Is only possible to save this to a file? It can't be save in memory to show in GUICtrlCreatePic?

Thank you.


Yours sincerely

You probably could using GDI+ but haven't tried myself, you can use GuiCtrlCreatePic("@AppDataDir@\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\UserTile.jpg", ....)

Yes, but I would like, if possible, to "save" the picture in the RAM and then use the RAM as the source.

Is that possible?

Using the _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory example works for me.

#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <AD.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    _GDIPlus_Startup() ;initialize GDI+
    Local Const $iWidth = 300, $iHeight = 300, $iBgColor = 0xFFE8FF ;$iBgColor format RRGGBB

    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("GDI+ Example (" & @ScriptName & ")", $iWidth, $iHeight) ;create a test GUI
    GUISetBkColor($iBgColor, $hGUI) ;set GUI background color
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    Local $hGraphics = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI) ;create a graphics object from a window handle
    Local $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory(_ADO_USERIMAGE()) ;load binary saved GIF image and convert it to GDI+ bitmap format
    Local $iW = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hBitmap), $iH = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hBitmap)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphics, $hBitmap, ($iWidth - $iW) / 2, ($iHeight - $iH) / 2) ;display image in GUI

    Do
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

    ;cleanup GDI+ resources
    _GDIPlus_BitmapDispose($hBitmap)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphics)
    _GDIPlus_Shutdown()
    GUIDelete($hGUI)
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func _ADO_USERIMAGE()
    _AD_Open()
        Local $oADO_USERIMAGE = _AD_GetObjectAttribute(@UserName, 'thumbnailPhoto')
            If @error Then Exit
    _AD_Close()
    Return $oADO_USERIMAGE
EndFunc

      Hi everyone.

      I'm currently working a program that constantly prints out log files through "consolewrite" and the "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" wrapper.

      Part of this program requires me to run a batch script.

      My issue is the batch script launches from the same window as consolewrite. I need the batch file to be launched through a different window as currently this causes an issue with the logs (which need to be very precise) but also causes the batch file to produce some funny behavior...

      Does anyone know how I can force the file to run on a second DOS window?

      Thanks in advance!!!
       
      Edit: Im using the "run" command if that helps. I tried "shellexecute" but that seemed to not launch the batch scripts at all.

      Hi All,
      I tried my best to looking a solution from this forum or others, but I have no luck. The imagesearch dll working fine in my 64 bits machine, whenever I move the scripts to Win 7 (32 bits), it crashes. ImageSearchDLL.dll, ImageSearch.au3 and my simple scripts are in the same working directory. For win 7 (32 bits) machine, I'm using 32 bits ImageSearchdll.dll, the simple scripts as below:
      #include <ImageSearch.au3>
      Global $y = 0, $x = 0
      Local $search = _ImageSearch("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples\Images\mypc.PNG", 0, $x, $y, 0)
      if $search = 1 then
         MsgBox(0,"Found","Found my target here..." & $x & "," & $y)
         MouseMove($x, $y, 10)
      Else
         msgbox(0, "Not found","")
      Endif
      However, I received error message below when running the script. Anyone here got clue?
