How to maintain library separately


Recommended Posts

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.

ur,

I would suggest that you should split up this single library into several smaller files which are more tailored in their application. The same thing happened to AutoIt with the release of  v3.2.12.0 - the previously huge install files were split into many smaller ones which were much more focused in their application.

Exactly. The answer is "finer grain".

This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
Another excellent RegExp tutorial. Don't forget downloading your copy of up-to-date pcretest.exe and pcregrep.exe here

      I'm trying to make one tray item delete another, but when I do this, all tray items that were created after the deleted item don't work as intended, as if their controlID's were all shifted down one value, and their corresponding tray items now (after deletion) run the code of the tray item before it. Am I missing something? Is there a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?
      #include <TrayConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> HotKeySet ( "{ESC}", "Abort" ) Opt ( "TrayMenuMode", 3 ) TraySetState($TRAY_ICONSTATE_SHOW) ; Show the tray menu. Global $aTray[8] ; Defines array to hold tray items. $aTray[0] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 1 (Name Test 5)" ) $aTray[1] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 2 (Delete Test 5)" ) $aTray[2] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 3 (Restore Test 5)" ) $aTray[3] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 4 (Check if Test 5 is blank or space)" ) $aTray[4] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 5 Delete Me" ) $aTray[5] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 6 (Check Test 5 Text)" ) $aTray[6] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 7 (Read Values)" ) $aTray[7] = TrayCreateItem ( "Test 8 (Count Blanks)" ) While 1 Switch TrayGetMsg() Case $aTray[0] ; "Test 1" Change Test 5 Text. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[0] ) <> "" Then Global $TrayText = InputBox ( "Test", "Choose text for Test 5", "Test 5 Delete Me" ) TrayItemSetText ( $aTray[4], $TrayText) EndIf Case $aTray[1] ; "Test 2" Deletes "Test 5". If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[1] ) <> "" Then Global $TrayDeletedName = TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) TrayItemDelete ( $aTray[4] ) _ArrayInsert ( $aTray, 4 ) EndIf Case $aTray[2] ; "Test 3" Restores "Test 5". If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[2] ) <> "" Then $aTray[4] = TrayCreateItem ( $TrayDeletedName ) EndIf Case $aTray[3] ; "Test 4" Check if Test 5 value is blank, space, or filled. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[3] ) <> "" Then If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) = "" Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 is blank" ) ElseIf TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) = " " Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 is not blank (space)" ) Else MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 is assigned a value" ) EndIf EndIf Case $aTray[4] ; "Test 5" (Item to test for, during, and after deletion). If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) <> "" Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "I'm here!" ) EndIf Case $aTray[5] ; "Test 6" Displays Text from Test 5 item. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[5] ) <> "" Then $Test5Text = TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[4] ) MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Test 5 Text: " & $Test5Text ) EndIf Case $aTray[6] ; "Test 7" Displays all item values. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[6] ) <> "" Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "$aTray[0]: " & $aTray[0] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[1]: " & $aTray[1] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[2]: " & $aTray[2] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[3]: " & $aTray[3] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[4]: " & $aTray[4] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[5]: " & $aTray[5] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[6]: " & $aTray[6] & @CRLF & _ "$aTray[7]: " & $aTray[7] & @CRLF ) EndIf Case $aTray[7] ; "Test 8" Counts all blanks in tray values. If TrayItemGetText ( $aTray[7] ) <> "" Then Global $blankCount = _ArrayFindAll ( $aTray, "" ) If $blankCount = -1 Then If @error = 6 Then MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "Error, No blanks present") EndIf Else MsgBox ( 0, "Test", "# of blanks: " & $blankCount ) EndIf EndIf EndSwitch WEnd Func Abort() Exit EndFunc Here is a test script I created to try to troubleshoot the problem on my own, with no luck. pay specific attention to "Test 2" ($aTray[1]), "Test 5" ($aTray[4]), and how every tray item after "Test 5" ($aTray[4]) behaves after deletion. Clicking "Test 2" will delete tray item "Test 5", after deletion every item runs the code of the tray item that was established before it (ex. "Test 3" and "Test 4" run their respective code, "Test 5" no longer exists, "Test 6" runs "Test 7", "Test 7" runs "Test 8"), and the last item ("Test 8" $aTray[7]) has no effect when the tray item is clicked. 

      I understand that deleting the tray item changes the controlID, but I don't know in what way it does, and therefore how I can fix it to be able to achieve what I want it to. I appreciate any help or guidance with this problem.

      To clarify, what I'm ultimately trying to do is create a 'while' loop with switch case functions that can exist without necessarily being linked to a tray item, so that I can add and delete them at liberty using the script's functions, without having to differentiate switch case functions with if functions (if $aTray[x] exists, then use this set of switch case functions, etc.). 

      Please, I am in pain. Water come school me again pls

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.26 contains 214 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor GUI, mouse and color GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) GUI numberbox controls for integer, real, binary and hexadecimal input logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      I'm using the following:
      Autoit 3.3.14.5
      newly installed Beta 3.3.15.5
      SQlite version 3380000 aka 3.38.0
      I put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3_x64.dll in C:\Windows\System32 since many scripts depend on them.


      I extended the output of _SQLite_Startup()
      with:
      ConsoleWrite("@AutoItX64 " & @AutoItX64 & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("$sDll_Filename " & $sDll_Filename & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

      Also using the script from https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_SQLite_Startup.htm for testing.

       
      >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0


      Why doesn't it work in 32bit, despite me having the 32bit sqlite.dll? Autoit urges running scripts in 32bit mode and Scite starts scripts just in 32bit mode without the flag?
      With #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y it just works, both normal Autoit and beta!

      Hello Team, Greetings!
      Is there any way to run any 3rd party application silently in background without the GUI getting in the front ?
      I was implementing angry-ip scanner with autoit & wanted the angry-ip application to run in background quietly as I am copying its output to other file on completion. is there any way to achieve my query?
      Below is code I tried: 
      $range = "192.168.0.1 192.168.0.255" ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\DDM\ipscan.exe","-f:range "&$iprange&" -q -o C:\temp\ScanResults.csv","","open",@SW_HIDE) Thanks!
