Console application - internal autoit error trap

8 posts in this topic

I am running my compiled application as a console application and need to prevent any internal errors from being displayed as a gui message, but rather display it as a console message only. An example of such an error would be a bad array reference (out of bounds).

Does anyone know how to do this or point me in the right direction?

Thanks AutoBert.  Having looked at it briefly, it still returns the error as a dialog though and not console output.  Anything that returns an input response from my console application will cause it to hang because it is called within a framework that requires no input

eg from framework

Execute myapp capturing output

myapp is the compiled autoit script. As soon as myapp contains an input response, myapp hangs within the framework. Thus the reason for no dialogs required, just a console output message saying something like 'An error occurred'.

I need to create a real console application.  That means no gui windows opening on internal errors.

I compile with the CUI checkbox checked, but when I run the program from CMD and there is a internal error like array out of bounds, I get a gui window detailing the error.

This is not a true console application then.

How do I create a real console application which shows errors written to STDOUT?

Any help appreciated.  This problem could kill all my work on my project.

Can this be added as a enhancement or bug for autoit please.

Compiled as CUI (console) means console output so output information to console and not as GUI output.

Alternatively have another checkbox for the information 'Error output to console only?'

Thank you amazing AutoIt developers in advance.

How about wrapping the call to the program in c++ code ( or autoit code) which looks for that error window in a timer then if found, closes it and terminates the executable?

Before it closes the window maybe it can get the text from the window to output as a console message after it closes that error window and closes the exe.

Does this sound feasible and can anyone help with example code?

      A fullscreen console with custom commands!

      Introduction:
      Hi everyone!
      This funny project started as a question in the help section:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/174404-edit-detect-key-before-updating-content/
      I'd like to share this script with everyone that is interested. 
       
      Why would I want it?
      You like the old style fullscreen console (like in the old day's), You can add custom commands, You can customize the font a lot more compared to cmd.exe, You can share ideas or add tweaks to the script.  
      What's next?
      I'm planning to add my own programming language to it!
      Its going to be implemented with an ActiveX COM dll.
      The syntax is going to be a bit like Lua I guess, any ideas are welcome!
       
      Todo:
      Add sounds. Make an icon / logo. Design a better grammar ( Backus-Naur-vorm: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backus-Naur-vorm ). Make test "Console-Scripts" for it. Add a file type for script files ( like batch scripts ). Clean up and modify Console.Au3 content. Add an option to have to type a login password (maybe). Call neo   
      Thanks to:
      xxaviarxx: debugging, some ideas. jguinch: debugging, adding a bunch of tweaks and ideas. kylomas: debugging, new ideas.  
      Edits and updates:
      Added tab key Main edit has focus now on startup Made a pdf that explains the upcoming programming language (need feedback about it!)  
      Until the dll is ready you can have fun with what I already have, hope you like it!
      UDF can be downloaded from the attachments.
      Regards
       
      [The programming language part is been postponed]
      [It's been a while, made a custom recursive descent parser in AutoIt, language and updates will be uploaded soon!]

      I am running the tomcat batch file through autoit   and need to wait until the below line I get in console output.

      But when I am trying to read the console output using the ProcessEx UDF, I am getting only the partial output.
      So, can you please suggest how to handle this.

      Hi everyone!
      I want to programmatically alter the structure of a large number of PDF which have different sizes and orientation, and come from different generators. To do this I need to be able to capture different parameters describing their layout.  I use a console tool called pdfInfo (part of the xpdf public domain suite) which provides me with everything I need. The idea is first to run pdfInfo against my pdf file redirecting the console's output to a text file. And then to load and parse the text file to get the parameters I need.  The only problem is that no output file is ever created.  I've looked through the forums and saw a number of threads loosely related to this but none of the suggested solutions (like using StdoutRead) has worked for me. I should say maybe that I'm running Win10.
      So here's the code that doesn't work:
      $pdfInfo = "f:\pdfinfo.exe" $pdfTest = "f:\test.pdf" RunWait(chr(34) & $pdfInfo & " -box " & $pdfTest & " > f:\log.txt", "", @SW_HIDE) If you use in a console the command line: 
      f:\pdfinfo.exe -box f:\test.pdf > f:\log.txt
      it works perfectly.  But the piece of code above does not create the log.txt file. So any idea what I am doing wrong.  Thanks for any help!

      I normally launch things silently, but now I want to launch a batch (.cmd) file and have it run as normal displaying it's standard output to the user. Whether I use ShellExecuteWait or RunWait, the command prompt window is displayed, but the output is blank (although I know that the batch file is processing normally because it also produces a log file).
      If this is because AutoIt is re-directing the standard I/O of the batch file/console window, is there a way I can bypass the I/O redirection?
      Thanks,

      Hi,
      I updated to the last version. Since then a lot of functions are not working.  For instance expanding abbreviation. My au3abbrev.properties are correct and abbrev.properties are including both import lines. The abbreviation is red but won't expand. Neither with space nor Ctrl+B.
      Debug to msgbox and console not working, list functions, jump to function, open include too.
      SciTE Jump works. Block and box comment too.
      I have the feeling all functions especially for autoit are not working.
      Any help? Regards, Conrad
