Read of an AD attribute of Octet String syntax

Recommended Posts

Valnurat

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.

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@" ?

Local $sPIC_USERIMAGE = @AppDataDir & '\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures\UserTile.jpg'

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

Kenneth.

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

      Hey There!
       
      So, what i need to do is an app that can read text in a image (I.e. a png that has text saying "This is a png" and return the text to a variable)
      I'm pretty much a newbie on AutoIt, my purpose is doing that but i don't know any function that can

      Any help is much appreciated

      I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
      In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
      Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
       
      edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.
       
      Thanks!
