i have a vbscript that called an autoit exe file and autoit exe file will return value to vbscript.

vbscriptto call the exe and create array:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run ( "C:\Datalog\test.exe")

Dim intCtr: intCtr=-1
Dim tempArr()
Set UID = CreateObject("System.Collections.ArrayList")

CurLot = ""

For Each filelog in FileList    
    LogFile = Split(filelog, "~")(1)
    Set otf = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\Datalog\" & LogFile, 1)

        sFile = Split(LogFile, "_")
        CurStep = sFile(4)
        Redim preserve tempArr(intCtr)


#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global $Count = 10
Global $CheckBox[$Count]
global $array1[1]

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

Global $array_Pstep[10] = ["P1", "A2", "A3", "A4", "A5", "A6", "A7", "A8", "A9", "A10"]
$Spacing = 24
For $i = 0 To  UBound($array_Pstep) - 1
    $CheckBox[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17)

$submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("submit",10, 300, 80, 30)


While 1
    $Msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $Msg

        case $submit
        Case Else
            For $i = 0 To $Count - 1
                If $CheckBox[$i] = $Msg Then
                    MsgBox("", "Pressed", $i)
                    _ArrayAdd($array1, $array_Pstep[$i])





i need to compare the array in vbscript and array return by autoit. but i dont know how to pass the value of array in autoit to vbscript. Please help.

Just out of curiosity, why are you guaranteeing yourself a headache by mixing and matching two very similar-syntax languages, rather than simply converting the vbscript to AutoIt and skipping the middle man?

the original script is in vbscript and i just need to add the comparing array feature with checked box. Since vbscript must used the hta, i prefer to used autoit. 

besides, the vbscript have dependency with other vbscript.

      I am maintaining all the reusable code in a separate file as library.au3.
      In that file I have referenced some dependent files using fileinstall, so that they will be extracted when necessary.
      Problem is, if I use a function in the library.au3 in another script which doesn't require this dependent file, as I am including the whole file using include tag, it is embedding that file also.
      Is there any way to exclude that.

      I recently tried to use ControlClick method to send a mouse click command to a button in a application, but I noticed that it is not working when I give first parameter as a window handle (HWND). But, when I give class name or window title, it works fine. I used AutoItX3 and VBScript. 
      Following are the commands I tried in VBScript:
      Dim WINAPI: Set WINAPI = WScript.CreateObject("WinAPIWrapper.WINAPI") Dim AutoItX3: Set AutoItX3 = WScript.CreateObject("AutoItX3.Control") Dim WindowHandle: WindowHandle = WINAPI.WinAPI_FindWindow("my window title", "my window class") 'Window handle obtains fine by my wrapper function 'Above window handle is obtained as a hexadecimal string. (I.E. - 0x00000000) I tried it like: WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(WindowHandle, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(CLng("&h" + Replace(WindowHandle, "0x", "")), "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(000000, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick(0x00000000, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // DOES NOT WORK Only following commands work: WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick("[CLASS:my window class]", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // WORKS FINE WScript.Echo CStr(AutoItX3.ControlClick("My window title", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")) // WORKS FINE  
      If any of your suggestions don't work, I will have to write a wrapper function myself to send mouse click commands. I chosen AutoIt V3 because it is good specially when comes to send keystrokes to applications. Please tell me why this won't work when I give window handle as first parameter.
      Thanks in advance.

      Is there any change that I can return a code for success or not success in my script?
      I have a script that look in a SQL db and write to the registry.
      I want to return some kind of a control, because I will call my script *.exe from VBScript.
      _Main() Func _Main() Local $sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={' & $sDriver & '};SERVER=' & $sServer & ';DATABASE=' & $sDatabase & ';UID=' & $sUser & ';PWD=' & $sPassword & ';', $sQUERY, $oRecordset, $aRecordsetArray, $aRecordset_inner Local $oConnection = _ADO_Connection_Create() _ADO_Connection_OpenConString($oConnection, $sConnectionString) If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, $ADO_RET_FAILURE) $sQUERY = "Select Shipdate from " & $sTableName & " where ComputerName = '" & @ComputerName & "'" $oRecordset = _ADO_Execute($oConnection, $sQUERY) $aRecordsetArray = _ADO_Recordset_ToArray($oRecordset, False) $aRecordset_inner = _ADO_RecordsetArray_GetContent($aRecordsetArray) RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ComputerInfo", "Shipdate", "REG_SZ", $aRecordset_inner[0][0]) EndFunc
