PowerPoint/Outlook COM objects

Recommended Posts


Hi all. 

I am trying to do 2 things but i cannot seem to get any traction on how to read/implement this idea.

Premise: PowerPoint file in C\temp\presentation.pptx that contains on the first slide 2 entries as "<one>" and "<two>" which need to be replaced with "user1" and "user2", then a silent Outlook send mail containing the file with a predefined body and subject.

I narrowed it down to COM objects as the Office does not like intrusive open AutoIt functions. I installed OLE/COM Object Viewer to understand how to create the commands but i am still stuck. So far i am trying to user water's code but i suck

COM object i was originally trying to modify

Dim $oPPT, $oPres

$oPPT = ObjCreate("PowerPoint.Application")
$oPPT.Visible = True
$oPres = $oPPT.Presentations.Read

Water's code below (0.1% modified)

#include <File.au3>
#include "PowerPoint.au3"
#include <misc.au3>

Global $sFile = "C:\temp\presentation.pptx"

Global $sString2Search = "<username>", $sString2Replace = "Password", $iReplaceOnce = 1, $sFullLogFile = "C:\temp\pptxlog.txt"


Func _ProcessPpt($sFile)

    $oApp = _PPT_PowerPointApp()
    Local $bChange = False
    Local $oInterface = $oApp.Presentations
    Local $oPresentation = $oInterface.Open($sFile, False, False, False)
    If @error Then
        _FileWriteLog($sFullLogFile, "E Error " & @error & " opening File " & $sFile)
        Return SetError(1, 0, 0)

    ;it does not even open my file and from here not sure how to read the text and replace it

EndFunc   ;==>_ProcessPpt

The Outlook part can easily be done using my OutlookEX UDF (for download please see my signature).
The PowerPoint part can be done with the (yet unfinished) PowerPoint UDF. Some manual coding might be needed (for download please see the example scripts section of the forum).

       Hello all"
      I have curious problem with com object implementation of Sapi 5.1.
      In some cases }Some Voice engines] the metods for retrieve the voice parameters fails with error :Member not exists:.
      But the Retrieved Voice object can speak the given text, so It exists and work.
      Example of this type of Engine can be this one: http://download.kobavision.be/KobaSpeech3/KobaSpeech 3 With Vocalizer Serena - English (Great Britain).exe (can work as demo)
      So my question is> Is there some way to workaround or solve this issue?
      What i tryed:
      1. Typical use of Sapi.spvoice object:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $voice in $spvoice.getvoices()
        msgbox(0, "Voice", $voice.getdescription())
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)

      2. Implement workaround based on Nvda Screen reader sapi5 Library at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/source/synthDrivers/sapi5.py
      Thys code in Pascal should work, so i tryed to reproduce it in Autoit.
      Pascal code just as example:
                   for i:=0 to SOTokens.Count-1 do
                        SOToken:=SOTokens.Item(I); s:=SOToken.GetDescription(0);
      In Autoit I tryed it like this:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $i = 0 to $spvoice.getvoices.count-1
      $name = $spvoice.getvoices.item($i).getdescription
      msgbox(0,"Voice", $name)
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      Both of this methods returning same Error ("Member not exists.").
      Thanks a lot for help.

      KNOWN BUGS (last changed: 2018-01-26)
      Function _OL_RuleConditionSet does not properly handle parameter rule condition type ($iRuleConditionType) when value $olConditionSentTo is passed. it is being processed the same way as $olConditionFrom.
      Thanks to user Moonscarlet for reporting this bug.
      Fixed with version of the UDF.

      Is there a way to get all the properties and method of a COM object thru Autoit.
      I am looking in a way of display the imbricated structure of object and method.
      Example of COm objects are "itunes.application", "Shell.application" and so on.
      The idea is to have a code looking like
      $objtobrowse = objcreate("itunes.application") if isobj($objtobrowse) then $colItems = $objtobrowse.buildinproperty For $objItem In $colItems ConsoleWrite($objItem.<Name> & " - " & $objItem.<Value> & @CRLF) Next EndIf

      Hey all.

      Can someone help me to go in the good direction? I'm a little lost with what's needed, (CLSID and IID whereas I have only a UUID and can't find a good starting doc online)
      Thanks a lot,

      Hi all.  Does AutoIt have any functions/tools (either built-in or user defined) that can help me automate the process of exporting an OST mailbox to a PST file in Microsoft Outlook (2013)?
      I know how to carry out the process manually.  At the Microsoft Forums, I have asked if it is possible to do the same via a script, but some have said it is not possible.  It may be possible if I was using Microsoft Exchange, but I am not.
      I've seen some posts about an Outlook UDF on this site (here and here), but I don't see any mention of exporting a mailbox.  
      In my post at the Microsoft Forums, many paid third party applications were suggested.  But for now I would like to pursue the custom scripting route as far as I can.
      The ultimate goal of this exercise is to automatically create a weekly backup of my Outlook mailbox for offline storage.
      Thanks in advance.
