GUI tabs to PDF (Solved)

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I've been reading this post ...

When I came accross the examples, non of them had what I was looking for.

I basically want to "snapshot" my GUI's multiple tabs and send them into the pdf.

A little nudge from you guys would be great.
Im really stuck with this one, therefore I have no code.
Lets discuss or point me in a right direction... thanks alot

As my screenshot provided in the original post, I was to try capture the tabs and inset them to a pdf.. otherwise, how would you capture checkboxes, edit boxes and input boxes to pdf?

I understand that you want to capture the tab and it's contents. What isn't clear is why you are doing this, how often it needs to occur, etc. If this is a one-time thing (such as creating documentation), then it's better accomplished using a screen capture tool such as Greenshot.

The function in Word and Excell to save as PDF is what I'm trying to achieve.
If I tell the program to save to pdf, it would need to save the checkboxes, edit boxes, etc.

Updating this post in case someone comes along looking for the same answers.

Found this UDF that uses a dll. 

I'll test this and see if I get the results I'm looking for.

Here is an update:
In order to attempt the print, the long way round is to create your gui in html...

Like I said, its not the solution but a work around...

You might want to consider using this:

It isn't free (the PDF library) as far as I recall, but it does contain a lot of functions like inserting images into PDFs. You can use _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd to capture your window


A cross-platform implementation of the AutoIt language

      Hi AutoIters!
      Here is my new UDF about GUIs: it's an enhanced mixture of Advanced InputBox (deprecated) and KODA Parser (deprecated), with additional functions.
      What you can do with it:
      Parse KODA files and directly create GUIs (_GUIUtils_CreateFromKODA) Parse a simple JSON form definition to simply create advanced InputBoxes with any amount/type of input controls (_GUIUtils_CreateFromJSON) Created GUIs are returned as Scripting.Dictionary objects, and you have helper functions to access GUIs controls by their names (_GUIUtils_HWnd, _GUIUtils_CtrlID, _GUIUtils_HCtrl ...) A function that can make a GUI created from KODA/JSON (defined by it's $oForm object) and make it a modal InputDialogBox (just like InputBox, but returns all entered data as Scripting.Dictionary object) Functions are documented, and there are some examples.
      Consider this UDF as beta, but since I'm currently using it in a small commercial project, it should become production ready in near future.
      To always get the latest code version, get it from Github (more up to date than this topic).
      Update 04/02/2020:
      New simple application example Fixed focused control handling in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Reset input values before returning from _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed CloseOnEsc in _GUIUtils_InputDialog Fixed Input not reset Fixed all ListBox items are selected Project now on GitHub https://github.com/matwachich/autoit-guiutils/
      Update 05/02/2020:
      Support for nodate for Date and Time input controls (pass null value) New handling of focused control _GUIUtils_InputDialog: Now, you can specify the focused control in $oInitialData by setting "controlName:focus" = True Updated documentation of _GUIUtils_InputDialog Update 07/02/2020:
      Bug corrected when setting Data input control Added: abillity to read a single input control New functions (_GUIUtils_GetInputs, _GUIUtils_WriteInputs), documentation completion. Readme file and screenshots on Github Page

      Hello Experts,
      I have Zero experience with Autoit + Adobe Acrobat, and I really in need to get this working as PoC.
      I am trying to automate some manual actions below are the steps I would like to do.
      INPUT to script : 
      1. PDF file to open
      2. String that I would like to add as \\Server\Directory name
      Steps : 
      1. Open the file in Adobe Acrobat Pro
      2. Browse to View > Tools > Send For Review > Open (see image 1)
      3. On the launched tool bar click on "Send for Shared Connecting" (see image 2)
      4. Next select option "Automatically Collect comments on my..." in dropdown and click 'Next' (see image 3)
      5. Select radiobutton "Network folder" and paste the input "\\Server\Directory" in text field and click 'Next' (see image 4)
      Experts, I would really appreciate a quick script which I can run and get rolling.
      Please note, I would not likwe to rely on MouseClick and/or cordinates match approach.
      PLEASE SUPPORT!!!!
      Makz

      Hello forum,
      I want to create a program with multiple menus and many elements inside. The problem is my way of doing this and below I have an example of how I do these menus.
      I know it's a bad way of doing them as using this method for more elements and menus cause big flickering.
       
      Can someone please help me with some tips of optimizing this or tell me another way of creating that menus with many elements without cause flickering? From a long time ago I still try to solve this but without any results, just small improvements.
      Many thanks for everyone.
