Is there any way of instantiating the "chakra.dll" in the form of an object?
something similar to as described here (but for C#), where this command 'host = new ChakraHost();" is used to instantiate Chakra as an object, and then the dot notation syntax is used to call the methods 'host.CallFunction("commitFunction");'  ......?

I think that would require wrapping the functions in some kind of COM object (AutoItObject for example), since ChakraCore.dll exposes only "flat API", i.e. exported DLL functions. ("Note that JSRT APIs are C++ APIs, this sample assumes a C# wrapper.", as it says on the Embedding ChakraCore page).

Hi @scintilla4evr, thanks for your answer

I was wondering if what says @guinness  in his topic here, could be used with this chakradll as well..?

anyway, back on your udf, could you show how to use it if, for example, I would like to use the functions from this 'moment' javascript library directly from AutoIt? (library found on this nice site)

any example is welcome

Thank You :)

Help a poor newbie !

Congratulations, but

I can't find out what's wrong with chakracore.au3  when calling a quite basic execution on the example 1 mode :

(function() {
    var h = window.document.location.href ;
    return h ;
})();

Many thanks in advance.

Func _ChakraCore_Startup($sDllFile = "Chakra.dll")

I had to remove the core part from the dll name and then it works. Powefull extension

My output from the examples

  1. JavaScript Output: 5
  2. JavaScript Output: 13
  3. JavaScript Output: llo Wor
  4. JavaScript Output: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  5. a: 320
    b: !dlroW olleH

Sorry for such a GIGANTIC delay in answering this question.

You can't use window.document.<blah blah insert some object here> in ChakraCore, because the window object is exposed only by web browsers. This UDF only gives access to "raw" JavaScript, so there are no browser-specific objects - no window, navigator, DOM, etc.

      How can I check if element is focused in Firefox using FF.au3 UDF?
      This is my try:
      I have prepared a function that checks if the object is focused:
       
      _FFCmd('FFau3.isfocused=function isfocused(a){try{return (a === document.activeElement)}catch(e){return}}') $oElm = _FFXPath("//*[@id='someId']") ConsoleWrite(_FFIsFocused($oElm)) Func _FFIsFocused($sElement = "") Local $isFoc = _FFCmd("FFau3.isfocused(" & $sElement & ")") Return $isFoc EndFunc ;==>_FFIsFocused Now, the javascript part is tested and it does return successfully.
      After a lot of try/fails I inserted an alert box in order to display the object being compared.
      Here is what I got
       
      The focused object is: [object XULElement]
      The object that I send for comparing is [object HTMLInputElement]
      Why is that?

      I am looking for a way to retrieve filtered messages from the ‘system debug channel.' also known as  ‘kernel-mode debug output.'

      AutoIt must do the capture in real time. The following AutoIt UDF almost does what is required but it only captures application level, or Win32 debug output.

      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/82889-capture-debug-information-udf/#comment-593268

      The utility DebugView by Sysinternals captures the information as required by turning on Capture Kernal and in my case using the Filter include:

      *Incoming connection*

      The use of DebugView to do this is covered in the following tech note;

      https://www.tacticalsoftware.com/support/tech-notes/logging-com-port-activity.htm

      https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/debugview.aspx

      However to make to make the information from DebugView available to my AutoIt script required DebugView capture to a text file and then my AutoIt script monitor that file for changes. The use of DebugView to capture the system debug channel could be made to work, but it was less than reliable and difficult to get started. The startup wasn’t something that could be easily automated not even with AutoIt.

      If you understood what I am talking about and made it this far, I think an explanation of the application is in order. Lots of details here sorry trying to answer questions in advance.

      I support a large installation of General Electric MUSE application. MUSE is a Windows-based medical application that processes and archives ECGs (electrocardiograms) taken on dedicated hardware (ECG Carts). Several methods exist on the cart to get the ECG from the Carts to the MUSE system; they range from floppies (on old obsolete hardware), memory cards, RS232 serial ports, and hardwired network connections.

      In our installation, we choose not to use the vendor-supplied network solution due to a variety of reasons I won’t get into here.  Instead, we have designed our own connection solution.

      We use a wireless serial server mounted on the ECG carts connecting to a server running a Serial/IP COM Port Redirector. The ECG cart and MUSE application think they are talking to each other via an RS232 port and as far as they are concerned, they are. However, this RS232 cable happens to run through our province (think State) wide Health Care WAN.  The hardware and software used can be seen on these two sites;

      http://www.bb-elec.com/Products/Wireless-Cellular/AirborneM2M-802-11-a-b-g-n-Dual-Band-Wireless/AirborneM2M-Industrial-Dual-Band-Wi-Fi-Router-Brid.aspx

      https://www.tacticalsoftware.com/virtual-serial-port-redirector/serial-ip.htm

      This setup works well we have over 130 ECG carts connecting using this setup. However, the end users are not technical, and there is a lot that can go wrong with wireless connections. So we do get complaints, often after the fact, that the ECG cart would not connect. A log of what ECG carts connected and when would be very helpful.

      The Serial redirector software can be configured to log all activity to the Kernal-mode Debug output. The serial redirector software itself being kernel level software. For configuration of the Wireless modules, we have custom written software (written in AutoIt) that amongst other things can display relevant configuration information for a Wireless module given it’s IP address.

      By extracting messages like the ones below from the Kernal-Mode Debug channel;

      COM56 : ½ Incoming connection from 10.158.188.172:51562

      COM18 : ½ Incoming connection from 10.158.188.200:50896

      COM19 : ½ Incoming connection from 10.158.188.180:59074

      COM68 : ½ Incoming connection from 142.239.15.82:34322

      We can have the module configuration program retrieve the configuration. The retrieved configuration contains more information such as the module ID number and wireless signal strength. This information is then logged to a file which is later loaded into a database. We can then query the database for connections made by a particular module within a specified time frame. The results of these Queries help us determine if the module was connected or is having problems connecting. Problems are usually indicated by poor signal strength and frequent re-connecting.

      So what I am looking for is a way for our module configuration program (written in AutoIt) to retrieve filtered Kernal-Level debug messages directly without using the DebugView application.

      The Forum post listed at the first of this message includes the source code for the DLL. So if you are versed in these matters and Visual Studio this may be an easy task. I looked at what needed to be done but, I was way over my head. If you look up the price of the serial IP redirector software, you can see that there is some money in our project for such things however, I do have a spending limit for purchases such as this.

      Hi all.
      I'm playing a bit with the ScriptControl object using as base this example by @genius257.
      here is a very simple try, ... but it fails. what I'm doing wrong?
      Local $oSC = ObjCreate("ScriptControl") $oSC.Language = "JScript" $oSC.ExecuteStatement('alert("I am a javascript alert box!");') MsgBox(0,'AutoIt','Pause') Thanks

      Good morning everyone
      I am working on a little script, which takes some data from a SQLite DB and should create a sort of report, inserting rows in a Word Document... I arrived at the point of:
      _Word_DocTableWrite() and, I don't know how to set the range parameter? What does that specify? 
      Thanks a lot for the help
      EDIT:
      Managed to write a table in the Word document, but now I get an error when I save the document with _Word_DocSaveAs(), with error 2.
      Which are possible causes? Thanks a lot, again
      EDIT 2:
      ... And, how can I set a border to the table? Maybe, with a sort of auto-formatting for text ( larger is the text, larger is the height/width of the table's cell ).
      Thanks  
      EDIT 3 ( bug ):
      Including the parameter $WdSaveChanges in the function _Word_DocSaveAs(), a save dialog box appears, and it should not do it, as it's written in the MSDN documentation:
      wdSaveChanges -1 Save pending changes automatically without prompting the user. Thanks again for everyone will answer to me
