Passing a Message from a Chrome extension to an Autoit Application

1 post in this topic

I have Autoit Chrome extension that interacts with the Autoit application though nativeMessaging. 
I am using the following code to get a message from Autoit to the extension:

var port = chrome.runtime.connectNative('com.my_company.my_application');
port.onMessage.addListener(function(msg) {
  console.log("Received" + msg);
}); 

And I then use this code to try and send a message from the extension to Autoit:

  var port = chrome.runtime.connect({name: "knockknock"});
    port.postMessage({joke: "Knock knock"});

     //or
    chrome.runtime.sendNativeMessage('com.my_company.my_application',
  { text: "Hello" },
  function(response) {
    console.log("Received " + response);
  });

But how can I then make the Autoit application evaluate the messages sent from the extension?
