I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome?
Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
I want to run a python script from autoit.
I know we can do this with shellexecute or run , but this python script takes 3 cmd line arguments.
How to pass them from autoit script?
I tried many ways.
Following solution also not working
RunWait( 'fullpath\Python.exe Scriptpath\ReadLog.py -f "file.log" -k "key" -e "errMsg" ') Found solution:
RunWait( 'fullpath\Python.exe ReadLog.py -f "file.log" -k "key" -e "errMsg" ', 'Working_directory_path')
cause im too new in the Auto it world i will try it with the your help. hopefully.
I woud like to know how i can handle my Problem.
I have a Excel Data with 362 random numbers.
this numbers are a part of the filepath ...example
as u can see its the first number of the Excel data. After the first 4 numbers it shoud make a "_" than another 5 "_"
This is my first question. How can i handle this to make it Shell execute.
If i am in the path.
the code shoud search for specific PDF Files.
They are named like: 0050569E364B1ED79B900F73E62660EC.pdf
the first 15 letters are always the same
when he found this data he has to copy it on a Folder on the Desktop.
(There can also be 2 or 3 pdfs in one Folder with this letters)
Please give me some help :-)
What command would I use to open the following folder directories for:
Computer/This PC (windows 7/Windows 10)
Run("Explorer.exe " & $filepath) ShellExecute($filepath) can be used to open folder locations when you type in the full directory such as "C:\Users\%username%\Documents" but I'm trying to figure out how to use these windows short paths.
Local $sPDFtk = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\pdftk.exe") Local $sInputPDF = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\Prodis_Test.pdf") Local $sSig_1 = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\Sig_1.pdf") Local $sTempPDF = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\Prodis_Test_TEMP.pdf") $iSuccess = ShellExecuteWait($sPDFtk, $sInputPDF & " stamp " & $sSig_1 & " output " & $sTempPDF, "", "", @SW_HIDE) @ScriptDir is "H:\_Conrad lokal\Downloads\AutoIt3\_COX". As you can see there is a space in the path.
I know that ShellExecuteWait is working with FileGetShortName at the filename. It seems to me that I can't pass the parameters that way. But without FileGetShortName it's not working too.
Ideas? Regards, Conrad
