How to make a newline in Word with COM

2 posts in this topic

Hi all (Especially @water)

I wonder how to do this task in word from autoit.

Assume that i pasted some text into word with this code.

Local $oWord = ObjGet("","Word.Application")
Local $wRangeObj = _Word_DocRangeSet($oWord, 0)

Local $data = ClipGet()                                     
$wRangeObj.Text = $data

$wRangeObj.Font.Bold = True

So far so good. Now, i need to enter a new line in word and turn the Font.Bold = False.  

Currently, i did it with activating the word window and Send() function. But i would like to do it with the help of COM object. How can i do that ?

      Hello, in my own design of small procedures, used to insert the ellipse notation in the GUI graphics, and let the arrow pointing to the little girl mouth position. I discovered that point to the gap region size is not fixed, first thought he had just set the angle, calculate the arc starting coordinates and end coordinates OK, then I found that I was wrong. The online search information, for a long time did not find the answer, only to the official website to help you, because I do not start.

      #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <Array.au3> Opt("MouseCoordMode", 2) ;1=absolute, 0=relative, 2=client $nPI = 3.1415926535897932384626433832795 $iAngle = 95 $iSpace = 50 $nX = 100 $nY = 200 $nWidth = 200 $nHeight = 100 $fStartAngle = $iAngle + $iSpace / 2 $fSweepAngle = 360 - $iSpace _GDIPlus_Startup() Local Const $iWidth = 600, $iHeight = 600 Local $hGUI = GUICreate("GDI+ UDF 示例", $iWidth, $iHeight) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $hGraphics = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI) _GDIPlus_GraphicsSetSmoothingMode($hGraphics, $GDIP_SMOOTHINGMODE_HIGHQUALITY) Local $hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate(0xFFFF8080, 1) Local $hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile("g_8.png") _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($hGraphics, $hImage, 400, 100, 102, 278) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawArc($hGraphics, $nX, $nY, $nWidth, $nHeight, $fStartAngle, $fSweepAngle, $hPen) ; Local $a = $nWidth / 2 Local $b = $nHeight / 2 Local $c = Sqrt($a ^ 2 - $b ^ 2) Local $Coordinate[4] $Coordinate[0] = Sqrt($a ^ 2 * $b ^ 2 / ($a ^ 2 * Tan((360 - $iAngle - $iSpace / 2) * $nPI / 180) ^ 2 + $b ^ 2)) $Coordinate[1] = Tan((360 - $iAngle - $iSpace / 2) * $nPI / 180) * $Coordinate[0] ;_ArrayDisplay($Coordinate) If (360 - $iAngle - $iSpace / 2) >= 90 And (360 - $iAngle - $iSpace / 2) <= 270 Then $Coordinate[0] = -$Coordinate[0] If (360 - $iAngle - $iSpace / 2) >= 0 And (360 - $iAngle - $iSpace / 2) < 180 Then $Coordinate[1] = -$Coordinate[1] $Coordinate[0] = $nX + $a + $Coordinate[0] $Coordinate[1] = $nY + $b + $Coordinate[1] ;MouseMove($Coordinate[0], $Coordinate[1]) Do Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE _GDIPlus_PenDispose($hPen) _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($hImage) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphics) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() GUIDelete($hGUI)

      I am having a very unique, but repeatable problem with ImageMagick COM interface. Here are the applicable lines of code:
      and then later on...
      $oIM.Convert(String($arFileList[$nFileIndex])&'[0]',"-alpha", "remove",@TempDir&"\temp.jpg")
      the array points to a pdf file with the "convert" command converting the first page of the pdf to a jpg with any alpha layer removed.
      Every time, without fail, the first time I run the script on a freshly booted machine it crashes on the $oIM.Convert command. It does this if it isn't compiled and says there is an error executing the command on the object. If compiled, i get an error that autoit has stopped responding. Anytime I run the script, compiled or not, after this initial crash everything works perfectly fine.
      I am totally at a loss as to why this is occurring and how to correct it.

      Is there a way to read data directly from the Windows Component Object Model (COM) interface?
      I am trying to make a really simple disk space reporter tool for accounts on an Active Directory domain, to read the disk quota limit for the logged on user's home directory, and report how much disk space they are currently using.

      Hi All,
      I've coded the small script below, but it can't seem to get the instance of Windows Media player as it keeps going to @error, I've not used com objects before so any assistance would be appreciate. I already have WMP open and minimised. I retrieved "WMPlayerApp" from the AutoIT info tool, I've included a copy below.
      I'm using these sources:
      $oWMP = ObjGet("", "WMPlayerApp") If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Can't get WMP", "Couldn't connect to the WMP instance") Exit EndIf $wmpPlayState = $oWMP.playState MsgBox(0, "Play State", $wmpPlayState) $wmpSongName = $oWMP.currentMedia.name MsgBox(0, "Play State", $wmpSongName) I've also seen references to the below, but I want to get an existing open WMP:
      ObjCreate("wmplayer.OCX") and have looked at the WMP.udf but can't see how it will do either of the functions I've coded above.

      I'm attempting to read each line of a word document and assign the line to a variable. Similarly to how you can read a line from a text file (.txt or .csv) using FileReadLine(). So far i have been unsuccessful in reading from a .doc/.docx file, nor have i found any documentation that has helped.

      In searching for a solution i did find a function to convert the word doc to a text file, however my script is for (PCI) auditing purposes and i do not want to create a new file on the HDD.  I have also read through the _Word UDF help files... Unless im not understanding the _Word UDF correctly, I did not see anything that functions similarly to the FileReadLine function.
      Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!
