AutoItObject Pure AutoIt

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I've made a library, based on AutoItObject UDF with the goal of implementing getter and setter functionality and make it possible to define new object properties in as few steps as possible.

Thank you to @trancexx for getting me on the right track, and all users in Hooking into the IDispatch interface for the code to get me going.

If I've forgotten to add credit, please let me know :)


#include "AutoItObject_Internal.au3"
$myCar = IDispatch()
$myCar.make = 'Ford'
$myCar.model = 'Mustang'
$myCar.year = 1969
$myCar.__defineGetter('DisplayCar', DisplayCar)

Func DisplayCar($oThis)
    Return 'A Beautiful ' & $oThis.parent.year & ' ' & $oThis.parent.make & ' ' & $oThis.parent.model

MsgBox(0, "", $myCar.DisplayCar)

More examples: Internal/Examples

Version: 1.0.3





Edit2 (19th March 2017):

First of all, sorry about the lack of updates on this project. I always start too many projects and end up ignoring old projects, if I run into problems ^^'.

So I've started moving my AutoIt scripts to GitHub. I will still post the most recent script version here.

This seems something very interesting.... and even more when support for adding methods will be ready.
...worth stay tuned.... :)
Thanks for sharing.

this line in AutoItObject_Internal.au3 raises an error:

If $iID==-1 Then Return Return $DISP_E_UNKNOWNNAME

Glad you like it ;)

Sorry about the error. My SciTE did not warn me, but after installing "SciTE4AutoIt3.exe" i now see what you mean ^^

I'll fix and re-upload immediately

version: 0.1.2

added basic support for methods via "__defineMethod" will update example.



I been spending all this time looking into function reference, but it might be impossible, without knowing the structure Autoit uses. I feel like i got as close as i could, without just poking the bytes and hoping to get lucky. So I've added the above to try and get somewhat the same result.

Please inform me, if someone can help me with this.

version: 1.0.0

Every type should now be supported with ease.

"__defineMethod" is now deprecated

"__unset" added

"__lock" added

Documentation will be above for most recent release, or on GitHub for older releases.

Nice. Some suggestions to join knowledge

Check also clr thread where we are working on c# clr solution for .net objects integrating into autoit..

Check oope.au3

Search for running object table in forums by trancex as it registers object on the fly so you can reach it from for example vbscript or other com languages.

version: 1.0.2

"__keys" added

"arguments" property added to AccessorObject.

see documentation above for more info.


Example to show one way to use the arguments property and to show it works with things such as ScriptControl:

#include "AutoItObject_Internal.au3"


$AutoItError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "ErrFunc") ; Install a custom error handler
Func ErrFunc($oError)
    ConsoleWrite("!>COM Error !"&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Number: "&Hex($oError.Number,8)&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Windescription: "&StringRegExpReplace($oError.windescription,"\R$","")&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Source: "&$oError.source&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Description: "&$oError.description&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Helpfile: "&$oError.helpfile&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Helpcontext: "&$oError.helpcontext&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Lastdllerror: "&$oError.lastdllerror&@CRLF&"!>"&@TAB&"Scriptline: "&$oError.scriptline&@CRLF)

    $oWindow.__defineGetter("onExit", Wnd_onExit)

    $oWindow.Show.width(300).bkColor(0xC2E34E).height(300).title("Example 2").onExit(_MyExit)

    While 1

Func _MsgBox()
    Return MsgBox(0, "_MsgBox", "test")

Func Wnd_Show($oSelf)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $oSelf.parent.hwnd)
    Return $oSelf.parent

Func Wnd_Hide($oSelf)
    GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $oSelf.parent.hwnd)
    Return $oSelf.parent

    If Not ($oSelf.arguments.length==1) Then Return SetError(1, 1, $oSelf.parent
    GUISetBkColor($oSelf.arguments.values[0], $oSelf.parent.hwnd)
    Return $oSelf.parent

Func Wnd_width($oSelf)
    If Not ($oSelf.arguments.length==1) Then Return SetError(1, 1, $oSelf.parent
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos(ptr($oSelf.parent.hwnd), "")
    WinMove(ptr($oSelf.parent.hwnd), "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $oSelf.arguments.values[0], $aPos[3], 0)
    Return $oSelf.parent

Func Wnd_height($oSelf)
    If Not ($oSelf.arguments.length==1) Then Return SetError(1, 1, $oSelf.parent
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos(ptr($oSelf.parent.hwnd))
    WinMove(ptr($oSelf.parent.hwnd), "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $aPos[2], $oSelf.arguments.values[0], 0)
    Return $oSelf.parent

Func Wnd_title($oSelf)

      since some days I become this error message exiting my app:

      Eventviewer shows following data:
      Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: autoit3.exe, Version:, Zeitstempel: 0x55fc1979 Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: ntdll.dll, Version: 6.1.7601.23864, Zeitstempel: 0x595fa490 Ausnahmecode: 0xc000000d Fehleroffset: 0x000987e0 I stripped my code from 1500 lines down to 70:

EndIf EndFunc Do following steps to prove:
      - start app
      - click "next" on main gui
      - wait minimum 5 seconds (until the arrows left and right on "gui left" disappear)
      - close gui left or right
      - close main gui
      - look on console written "EXIT" the last code line before exit
      - now windows error message above appears
      The funny thing is if I don't wait the 5 seconds (before the half transparent arrows disappear) closing the gui then I will get no win error message.
      If I comment _AcrobatShow() out then the error never appears. So it seemed to be an acrobat reader issue. Every week at work there are a lot of updates, but there is no chance to know which one. But since one update this error happens.
      Any solutions? Regards, Conrad

      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 = $ 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 have a problem here. I have a Script wich opens a Gui with an iExplore Object embedded. The GuiCreate is in an external Function an called in the main while of the script.
      When the Gui closes the Gui gets destoyed. But unfortunately the iExplore Obejct still remains. You can see this by the RAM usage of the exe. After opening a Website the RAM usage stays at  ~ 50 Mb RAM (depending on the website).
      I want it to fall back to the normal state (around 4 MB).
      You can see my attempts to delete the object properly. According to the help an embedded object should get deleted when the GUI gets deleted ...?
      GUICreate("Display", 600, 360, -1, -1) Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() $obj = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, 600, 360) GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0xff0000) _IEPropertySet($oIE, "addressbar", False) _IEPropertySet($oIE, "menubar", False) _IEPropertySet($oIE, "statusbar", False) _IEPropertySet($oIE, "toolbar", False) _IEPropertySet($oIE, "resizable", False) _IENavigate($oIE, $dest&"\index.html") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Local $iMsg = GUIGetMsg() Local $tmsg = TrayGetMsg() Select Case $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ;~ $obj = 0 ;~ _WinAPI_DeleteObject ( $obj ) ;~ _IEQuit($obj) ;~ _MemGlobalFree($obj) ;~ $oIE = 0 ;~ _WinAPI_DeleteObject ( $oIE ) ;~ _IEQuit($oIE) ;~ _MemGlobalFree($oIE) GUIDelete() Case $tmsg = $exit _exit() EndSelect WEnd  
      I would be very happy for your help

      I've encountered a problem while I tried to close popup in application that is using embeded GUI object. If site has function "onbeforeunload" asking if you really want to exit you will get a popup. In embeded gui object it completly freezes functions and I can't click/close/do anything. I've created sample code with microsoft function example and in external window. Any idea how to close popup in GUI embeded IE? I've tried navigating using _IENavigate($oIE, $sURL, 0) or  changing focus _IEaction($oIE,"focus") but nothing works.
