whatsapp boot

Recommended Posts

There is any piece of code in AU3 that allows to read a whatsapp message on PC?

I need to do a whatsapp boot, and of course, would like to do in au3. But probably I will need some kind of external program/library to receive the message and then make au3 read it and do the automation I need.

Hi Jos, thanks, you are right, as I know up to now  the phone must be turned on and connected. Not the ideal solution, but I think this is not a major problem.

That means also that I will need to deal with chrome or IE udfs to try to read those messages, correct?

If that´s the way as I´m not very familiar with browsers controls, I will need to learn about them before...

Interesting to notice that at wiki ( https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/User_Defined_Functions#Social_Media_and_other_Website_API ) we have UDFs for Skype and even Telegram, but none for whatsapp... (https://github.com/xLinkOut/telegram-udf-autoit), while whatsapp is much more used today.

Jose

Telegram is so much easier as that supports other devices to use the BOT option which can be used for both sending and receiving messages.
Whatsapp doesn't allow that option and requires to have its own unique mobilenumber attached to its session.

So what exactly do you want to get done here?

How it shoud work:

  • a user gets in chat with this phone/boot (can be direct chat or a group chat)
  • as the messages arrives at bot, AU3 must read the message and take some actions

So, it´s very "simple". Au3  must know when there is a message and get it.

Besides text msgs, ideally it shoud get image/vídeo/voice msg.  And, not a must, to be able to send some simple text messages

Well, this is doable with Telegram as that supports the BOT concept.

Thanks Jos, I see.

Do you think what I need is resonable to do with whatsapp web? I mean, try to get arrived messages with Chrome or IE UDF?

Or is a waste of time? (as I will need learn how to deal with these udfs/browsers first?)

Thanks

Jose

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc

      Hello,
      Is there any way to check for validity of a pointer to a DllStruct ?
      In the above code, a DllStruct is created from an invalid pointer. How to prevent from doing this ?
      local $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i") DllStructSetData($tStruct, "i", 123) local $pStruct = DllStructGetPtr($tStruct) $tStruct = 0 ; destroy DllStruct ==> $pStruct becomes invalid ; how to check here for validity of $pStruct and prevent from doing the following ? $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i", $pStruct) ; create DllStruct from invalid pointer... MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, @error) ; displays '0' : invalid pointer is not detected by DllStructCreate() MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, IsDllStruct($tStruct)) ; displays '1' : tStruct is assumed as a valid DllStruct object, which is not Thanks for help
