Include all *.au3 libraries

7 posts in this topic

Hey AutoIT Community,

Just wanted to know if there is a way I can #include all *.au3 files in my script without having to #include each individual .au3 file. For instance, currently I have a laundry list of #includes like this:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Inet.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <GuiMenu.au3> 

[ECT...ECT...]

Would there be a way I could include all of the files above or all  .au3 file in a one liner? That way I do not have to burn up a bunch of lines of code for just my includes.... Your help is greatly appreciated...

I would rather do that, than have a bloated file size. If you are not going to use a function from the file, why include it?

Well, it's not about including things I don't need... It is more about consolidating the includes i do need into 1 line of code....  If my program needs eight or ten #include statements to run, id rather shrink that into one statement...

If that is the case, then create a UDF, call it My_Includes.au3, and then add the includes that you are going to use into that file, calling that one file from your script will keep it to one line? But I may be really off, in what you are trying to accomplish.

One method would be to run the attached script which creates a file, "All.au3", which contains all the au3 files in the Include directory.
So, to include all include files, put #include "All.au3" at the top of your script, and, have the  "All.au3" file in the same directory as the script you are working on. Or, use #include "FullPath\All.au3" if  the "All.au3" file is not in the same directory as the working script.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
;#include "All.au3"
; Having run this script the "All.au3" file exists. So the above line,';#include "All.au3"' can be un-commented, and
; the top two include files can be commented out.

Local $FileContents
Local $IncludeAll = "All.au3" ; Found in this script's directory.
Local $aIncludes = _FileListToArray(StringRegExpReplace(@AutoItExe, "\\[^\\]+$", "") & "\include\", "*.au3")
;_ArrayDisplay($aIncludes)

Local $hFileOpenWrite = FileOpen($IncludeAll, 2) ;  Write mode (erase previous contents)
$FileContents = "#include-Once" & @CRLF & @CRLF
For $i = 1 To UBound($aIncludes) - 1
    $FileContents &= '#include <' & $aIncludes[$i] & '>' & @CRLF
Next

FileWrite($hFileOpenWrite, $FileContents)
FileClose($hFileOpenWrite)
ShellExecute($IncludeAll)

Thanks @Malkey very useful.
I have made small modyfication, I hope you will not be angry ;)

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>

_CreateCommonIncludeFile()

Func _CreateCommonIncludeFile()
    ; #include "All.au3"
    ; Having run this script the "All.au3" file exists. So the above line,';#include "All.au3"' can be un-commented, and
    ; the top two include files can be commented out,
    ; but third include is needed for $FO_OVERWRITE = 2 ,
    ; if you want to not use #include <FileConstants.au3> just change the $FO_OVERWRITE to the maginc number = 2  ;)

    Local $aIncludes = _FileListToArray(StringRegExpReplace(@AutoItExe, "\\[^\\]+$", "") & "\include\", "*.au3")
;~  _ArrayDisplay($aIncludes, '$aIncludes')

    Local $sFileContents = "#include-Once" & @CRLF & @CRLF
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aIncludes) - 1
        $sFileContents &= '#include <' & $aIncludes[$i] & '>' & @CRLF
    Next

    Local $sIncludeAll = "All.au3" ; Found in this script's directory.
    Local $hFileOpenWrite = FileOpen($sIncludeAll, $FO_OVERWRITE) ;  Write mode (erase previous contents)
    FileWrite($hFileOpenWrite, $sFileContents)
    FileClose($hFileOpenWrite)
    ShellExecute($sIncludeAll)
EndFunc   ;==>_CreateCommonIncludeFile

 

Remark:
Recently I refactor a lot of code in my own UDF (those not published).
And now I have such a perversion to improve code, which I use.

      How do i add a path to a file in Include.
      I want my script to get the udf in the same folder as the script/exe:
      Include "@ScriptDir/udf.au3" can this be done?

      Hello,
      What command would I use to open the following folder directories for:
      Computer/This PC (windows 7/Windows 10)
      Libraries\documents
      Libraries\Pictures
      I know:
       Run("Explorer.exe " & $filepath) ShellExecute($filepath) can be used to open folder locations when you type in the full directory such as "C:\Users\%username%\Documents" but I'm trying to figure out how to use these windows short paths. 
      Thanks,

      I have recorded a gui installation and modified the au3 file as per my requirement.
      But the problem is, whenever I try to compile the au3 file, I am getting a special character on top of the file.

      Can you suggest how to resolve this as it is appearing everytime during compilation.
      And also I am trying to include a au3 file which is separate folder so I am adding the <..\Library.au3> line.
      It is able to pick that but in that file "Library.au3" there is a file install line.
      FileInstall(".\SendMail.ps1", @ScriptDir & "\SendMail.ps1") Library.au3 is being used by many other codes in the previous folder..
      But the current file is looking for the ps1 file in current folder.
      So is there any option to tell the compiler to pick the dependent files relative to Library.au3 instead of the current code.

      Hi all.
      I have created an external au3 (a library of functions and vars) that is #included in a main script that i must compile.
      I wish that the content of the library is not merged with the main script when compiling.
      My goal is to keep the ability to modify the library even after the main exe is compiled and that these changes are effective when executing the exe.
      I guess this is not possible using the standard #include method.
      Is there a way to do that ?
      thx a lot :-)

      Is there possibility to do it like this?
      Cause as I see compiler doesn't see If statement in case of #include functions.
      It includes these two files all time.
      If $var == True Then #include 'func/funcsByTabs/main_Moda.au3' Else #include 'func/funcsByTabs/main_Others.au3' EndIf
