help to Identify a Specific Client Application, take screen capture, save the jpeg file to UNC locationBy vargheseg
I am new to AutoIT but I do use Sikuli. Decided to use AutoIT for this project as all the required can be created in an .exe file, does not need Java like Sikuli.
Also which can be pushed to tool bar of Windows 10 desktop.
Our users will interact with a client/server application and normally work on dual screen. The script needs to detect the c/s application from the dual screen, needs to do three mouse clicks based of image/pixel comparison, will need to wait till the click object is available and then finally take screen capture of the top 40 rows and save the .jpeg file to windows file share location.
once the file save is completed, pop up message - the screen capture is completed. Then the users can do their regular work.
Potentially other factor that will play are the screen resolution.
Can anyone guide me to some relevant scripts already in the forum. In the meantime I am learning the basics of the tool.
Appreciate feedback and any help
While creating a few excel spreadsheets using AutoIt, I came across something which to my limiting time to research the forums I don't anyone has mentioned.
The color pallettes are reversed.
Huge shock to me.
I wanted to produce a red row but kept on getting blue.
Seems like 0xFF0000 was red on the charts but when running the script, I got blue.
I then played around with the colors, and after a few tries, I finally got Red.
Reversed the FF0000 and the result is 0000FF.
So for Excel compared to Html
0000FF (Red) - Excel
0000FF (Blue) - Html
FFFF00 (Cyan) - Excel
FFFF00(Yellow) - Html
oAuth 2.0 is security system implemented by Google a few years ago. You are able to connect into your Google accounts and manage documents. In this UDF i show you how to pass first authorization process., this allow you to automate most of functions using API interface. 2. Requirements.
Google account. oAuth.au3 Download 3. Possibilities
;============================================================================================================ ; Date: 2018-02-10, 14:21 ; ; Description: UDF for authorize your app with oAuth 2.0 Google. ; ; Function(s): ; oAuth2GetAuthorizationCode() -> Get Code for "grant". ; oAuth2GetAccessToken() -> Get "access_token" and "refresh_token" first time. ; oAuth2RefreshAccessToken() -> Get current "access_token" using "refresh_token". ; ; Author(s): Ascer ;============================================================================================================ 4.

Go to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/dashboard and accept current rules.
Next create an new project
Enter name of you new project and click Create
Google will working now, please wait until finish. Next go to enable your API interface, we make if for Google
Take "Gmail" in search input and after click in found result.
Click Enable interface, Google will working now.
Create your login credentials
Select Windows Interface (combobox), User credentials (radio) and click button what is need bla bla
Type name of a new client id for oAuth 2.0 and click Create a new Client ID.
Next configure screen aplication, type some name and click Next. Google will working now.
Last step on this website is download source with your credentials in *Json format.
Now you received a file named client_id.json, it's how it look in Sublime Text:
Now we need to call a some function to get access code.
#include <oAuth.au3> Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" oAuth2GetAuthorizationCode($sClientId, $sRedirectUri)
Function will execute default browser for ask you to permission.
Next Google ask you to permission for access to your personal details by application Autoit
Now you can thing is something wrong but all is ok, you need to copy all after code= . It your access code.
Let's now ask Google about our Access Token and Refresh Token
#include <oAuth.au3> Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sClientSecret = "cWalvFr3WxiE6cjUkdmKEPo8" Local $sAuthorizationCode = "4/AAAPXJOZ-Tz0s6mrx7JbV6nthXSfcxaszFh_aH0azVqHkSHkfiwE8uamcabn4eMbEWg1eAuUw7AU0PQ0XeWUFRo#" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" Local $aRet = oAuth2GetAccessToken($sClientId, $sClientSecret, $sAuthorizationCode, $sRedirectUri) If Ubound($aRet) <> 4 then ConsoleWrite("+++ Something wrong with reading ResponseText." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ConsoleWrite("Successfully received data from Google." & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("access_token: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("expires_in: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("refresh_token: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("token_type: " & $aRet & @CRLF)
Important! When you received error 400 and output says: Invalid grant it means that your previous generated access_code lost validity and you need to generate new calling previus code. When everything is fine you should received a 4 informations about your: access_token, expires_in, refresh_token and token_type. Access_Token time is a little short so you need to know fuction possible to refresh it (tell Google that he should generate a new Token for you)
#include <oAuth.au3> Local $sRefreshToken = "1/ba8JpW7TjQH3-UI1BvPaXhSf-oTQ4BmZAbBfhcKgKfY" Local $sClientId = "167204758184-vpeues0uk6b0g4jrnv0ipq5fapoig2v8.apps.googleusercontent.com" Local $sClientSecret = "cWalvFr3WxiE6cjUkdmKEPo8" Local $sRedirectUri = "http://localhost" Local $aRet = oAuth2RefreshAccessToken($sRefreshToken, $sClientId, $sClientSecret) If Ubound($aRet) <> 3 then ConsoleWrite("+++ Something wrong with reading ResponseText." & @CRLF) Exit EndIf ConsoleWrite("Successfully received data from Google." & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("access_token: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("expires_in: " & $aRet & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("token_type: " & $aRet & @CRLF)
6. Finish words
If you followed all this above steps im sure that you received all informations required for coding your Google API (Gmail, Dropbox, YouTube, Calender etc. See next thread: [UDF] Gmail API - Email automation with AutoIt!
Perform a simple google search!
The script below works fine until fill the google form!
What I can't find is how to submit the form, tried a couple of ways and none of them worked.
#include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate ("www.google.com") $o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "f") $o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "q") $username = "80251369" _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_login, $username) $o_numer = _IEGetObjByName($o_form, "btnK") _IEAction ($o_numer, "click")
The code runs without any problem.
I don't know how to proceed!
Thanks in advance!
