Recommended Posts

Viki

This is my first time here so please dont bombard me that what a silly question I am asking!!

I have 500 rows (A1:A500) in a spreadsheet and I just want to copy one by one row and then paste into another application and then press enter, loop should repeat this until finishes all 500 rows.

I have looked at clipget(), clip(put() but dont know how to select next row in next turn. I also looked at Array to store but again no luck. Can some guide me please..

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

To process Excel workbooks I suggest you have a look at the Excel UDF that comes with AutoIt. Function _Excel_RangeRead should do what you want.
How to paste the read Excel cells to your application depends on the type of application (browser, GUI ...).

If you can provide more information we might be able to provide a solution ;)

Hi Water, many thank for your quick reply.

I have see those UDF and looked at the examples as well which is copying the data from one cell, so how can I copy on cell go to (for example teamviewer)  paste the value into the partnerid field and press enter and then again go to excel and repeat the process.

 

Regards,

Vik

I would use _Excel_RangeRead to read the whole worksheet into an array in a single go. Reading cell by cell takes much more time.
Then loop through the array and send each "cell" to your application using ControlSend and ControlClick.

I have found example where I can store the values in the Arrays but could not find a way to paste it into the application however, I have written something like this, which works fine and paste to the Notepad one by one but now I have another issue, I could not find a way to select the input field in my application, here for example lets think about teamviewer and if I want to select the password field then what will be the bast way, I tried the windows info tool but could not figure out what command should I use and what unique identifier should I choose and how to use it. It will be great if can please help me in this:

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @ScriptDir & "\TESting.xlsx")
If @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example", "Error opening workbook '" & @ScriptDir & "\TESting.xlsx'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    _Excel_Close($oExcel)
    Exit
EndIf
Local $sResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default, "A1")

Do
    Local $sData = ClipGet()
    ClipPut($sResult)
    $sData = ClipGet().
    WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")
    Send("^v")
    Send ("{ENTER}")
    $sResult = $sResult + 1

Until $sResult = 123465

Use the ID desplayed on the Control tab of the Window Info tool and call function ControlSend with this information.

Thanks, the application I wanted to copy to is internet based so can you please point me to the right direction if I have to automate IE or firefox, I do I have to download before I start working with any of the browser. I tried this (t start with):

#include <ff.au3>

_FFStart("www.google.co.uk")

but got the error

Line 12  (File "C:\Users\va012278\Desktop\ff.au3"):

#include <ff.au3>

Error: #include depth exceeded.  Make sure there are no recursive includes.

Seems there is a recursive include in your script. The file ff.au3 which you include in your script itself includes ff.au3 and this results in an endless loop.

Hi

I am bit struggling when my webapp opens a popup to add a new record. It is fine if I put the sleep to let window open that popup after I click on 'Add' but is there any way I can dynamically check if that popup has opened because popup may take longer or shorter to load. I tried to get the reference (through window info utility) but no luck, it shown something as

<div class="ui-dialog-titlebar ui-widget-header ui-corner-all ui-helper-clearfix">
<span id="ui-id-9" class="ui-dialog-title">Add Street</span>

I could not find any online help as well for this, can you please give me a hand...

Unfortunately I have never used the Firefox UDF so I can't help you with this problem.
Hopefully some experienced Firefox coder chimes in :)

Ah .. but in post #7 you were talking about FF.

My first try would be to access the element by using _IEGetObjById.

I have managed to do with _IE but now I have another obstacle, I want to loop through all the directories within a directory but want to see folder starting with "my" I have something like this

Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray("\\server\c$\inet\root", "*")

For $i = 0 to 10
    If StringInStr($i,"my") Then

    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $aFileList[$i])

    EndIf

Next

please help to only retrieve folder starting with 'my'

      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
