Recommended Posts

hello  everyone,

I'm new with AutoIT and just looking for a way to open Firefox with random window size

i have tried too many different samples from the web, some how it works but i can't make it works with Firefox 

MozRpel and ff.au3 installed 

right now i can open Firefox with this code, but i still can't control the window of Firefox

; open firefox 

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

; open firefox with random size

Can you show us the code you tried that didn't work? Also, have you considered using WinMove to set the window's size once FF has loaded?

here some of the scripts i tired from the web

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Run Notepad
    Run("notepad.exe")

    ; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
    Local $hWnd = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)

    ; Retrieve the position as well as the height and width of the Notepad window. We will use this when we have to move the window back to the original position.
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos($hWnd)

    ; Move the Notepad to the x, y position of 0, 0 and set the height and width at 200, 200.
    WinMove($hWnd, "", 0, 0, 200, 200)

    ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the new position of the Notepad window.
    Sleep(2000)

    ; Move the Notepad window back to the original position by using the array returned by WinGetPos.
    WinMove($hWnd, "", $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $aPos[2], $aPos[3])

    ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the original position of the Notepad window.
    Sleep(2000)

    ; Close the Notepad window using the handle returned by WinWait.
    WinClose($hWnd)
EndFunc   ;==>Example
; open firefox

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

WinMove(_FFStart(), "", 0, 0, 400, 400)
; For window size 1024 * 768
$customWidth = 1024
$customY = 768
 
If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then
    WinMove($CmdLine[1], "", 0, 0, $customWidth, $customY)
    _Middle($CmdLine[1], "")
EndIf
 
Func _Middle($win, $txt)
    $size = WinGetClientSize($win, $txt)
    Local $y = (@DesktopHeight / 2) - ($size[1] / 2)
    Local $x = (@DesktopWidth / 2) - ($size[0] / 2)
    Return WinMove($win, $txt, $x, $y)
EndFunc

and here i found some topics about resizing,

i'm not really good in coding the reason i still can't run it with firefox

 

thanks :)

Im curious about what you mean with random size, do you really mean random? as in: anything between 0 and total width, and 0 and total height?

This works for me, as i think you described it

$Proc = Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe")
_Random()
Func _Random()
    WinWait('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $Handle = WinGetHandle('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $x = Random(0, @DesktopWidth)
    Local $y = Random(0, @DesktopHeight)
    ConsoleWrite('$x - '& $x &' $y - '&$y&@CRLF)
    Sleep(3000)
    WinMove($Handle, '', $aPos[0], $aPos[1], $x, $y)
EndFunc

You need to get the handle of the FF window. To do that, you can use _FFWindowGetHandle() --

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

$ffhwnd = _FFWindowGetHandle()

WinMove($ffhwnd, "", 0, 0, 400, 400)

excellent  it works! it was just missing this part for testing the window control

$ffhwnd = _FFWindowGetHandle()

now i will try  Careca's code for the Random part :) 

thanks

excellent it works like a charm :thumbsup:

exactly what i was looking for, it took me a week trying to figure it out 

now i will just try to keep the resolution of the window at specific size  as in:  anything between 550 and 1280 width x 400 and 720 height
hope it will works

 thank you :)

$Proc = Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe")
_Random()
Func _Random()
    WinWait('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $aPos = WinGetPos('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $Handle = WinGetHandle('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
    Local $x = Random(1000, 1360, @DesktopWidth)
    Local $y = Random(650, 720, @DesktopHeight)
    ConsoleWrite('$x - '& $x &' $y - '&$y&@CRLF)
    Sleep(3000)

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
