Unable to open DLL files

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I am trying to open a dll using DLLOpen, however everytime i try to do so the function fails and returns -1 result. 

I have the dll in the same folder as the auto it script. 

Local $hDLL = DllOpen("C:\Users\310255155\Downloads\COMMGvv2\commg.dll")
DllCall($hDLL, "int", "MessageBox", "hwnd", 0, "str", "Some text", "str", "Some title", "int", 0)
DllClose($hDLL)
MsgBox(0,'result',$hDLL)

Using nirsoft's free DLL Export Viewer @ http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/dll_export_viewer.html, I could not find the export function, "MessageBox" in the "commg.dll" file.

To dllcall a message box, see the  _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect function.

First, look up _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect in the AutoIt help file and try the example, then;
Secondly, open the include file, WinAPIDlg.au3, and look at the actual workings of the _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect function.
You'll see "MessageBoxIndirectW" is the export function used from the "user32.dll" file.

Note : The return values of  the _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect function is the same as the return values of  the MsgBox function, which depends on which button is pressed in the message box.

      Hi all,
      I have a button created with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. I know that this function returns a handle of button instead of an ID. So i have obtain control ID by calling _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID function. After that i have tried the GUICtrlSetBkColor function. But it didnt worked. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. 
      Note : - The window which carries this button is not created with native gui create function. Instead, it is created with CreateWindowEx api function.

      Hi all,
      I am playing with _GUICtrlButton_Create function. How can i change this button's (or the entire form's) font ?. The in-built GUICtrlSetFont function is not working even when i convert the control handle to control ID with _WinAPI_GetDlgCtrlID ( ) function.  Do i need to use CreateFont api finction and send WM_SETFONT message ? Or is there any other easy and safe ways to do this ?. Thanks in advance.
      Note : This window is created by CreateWindowEx function, not by GUICreate function.

      Hi All, 
       
      I am a begginer in auto it. I am trying to build simple gui that will show me if for example notepad.exe process is currently running on the system. I have built something like this, but when I execute it shows me message boxes, but I want the results to show in gui. If you can help me start with this.
       
      Thanks

      This is a magnifier-color-picker thing mostly based on some code I found on Stack Overflow, of all places. At least all the clever bits are from there. 
      I'd love to use this code inside an app I'm working on. But it has an issue. The first time the mag pops up it works perfectly, but the second and subsequent times, it's a boring grey square. 
      One of you smart dudes will probably look at this and go, "Aha!", but I'm stumped.
