Can autoit connect with Faxtalk COM SDK

Recommended Posts


I am attempting to automate sending faxes in faxtalk. They have an SDK that utilizes COM technology. Can I connect with that on Autoit? Here is what it the description on there sdk.

About the FaxTalk SDK
The FaxTalk SDK enables software developers to extend the functionality of FaxTalk. The SDK uses
the application programming interfaces (APIs), which employ Microsoft’s Component Object Model
(COM) technology.
The FaxTalk SDK is a set of COM objects, header files, sample code, and documentation designed to
help you create programs that provide automated access to FaxTalk functionality. Using the FaxTalk
SDK, you can set up automated access to:
 Submitting faxes to be sent with the FaxTalk send engine
 Selecting cover pages for faxes sent
 FaxTalk Inbox, Outbox, Sent, and Transaction Log folders
 Send and receive status
 FaxTalk application configuration information
 Integrate client applications with the FaxTalk folders
 Conversion to FaxTalk image format file
Each area of FaxTalk functionality is accessed through a FaxTalk SDK object. This document describes
each FaxTalk SDK object and its functions.

The only examples they give are C#....which I have basically no knowledge of.

Hello. You need to use the ProgID or CLSID to create an Object Instance.


Local $oFaxTalk=ObjCreate('FaxTalk.API') ;Using ProgID
;~ Local $oFaxTalk=ObjCreate('{49EC7778-D69F-4EA7-9A34-DB008122734D}'); Using CLSID
ConsoleWrite("oFaxTalk: " & IsObj($oFaxTalk) & @CRLF)
