Store Word Document in Autoit Gui

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

(I Know we can launch word files from script directory)

FileInstall


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

As BrewMan mentions, FileInstall if you want to simply include the Word Doc with your script. If you meant actually embedding it in your GUI for reading, I used to use something like this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$file = @DesktopDir & "\Test.doc"
$oWordDoc = ObjGet($file)

If IsObj($oWordDoc) then
    GUICreate ( "Embedded Object Test", 800, 300)
    $GUI_ActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oWordDoc, 10, 10, 780 , 280 )
    GUISetState ()

    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop
        EndSelect
    Wend

    GUIDelete ()
EndIf

Be forewarned the ribbon plays havoc with viewing if the GUI is too small

Thanks !
As I understand it this will install soem specific files to a location specified (something like a setup)

My aim is to embed the file in the tool itself and open it up on user click. (it should not be stored as a seperate file in the script directory)

Thanks But this uses a file stored in a location right? As I understand this code, it basically launches test.doc from desktop when user click in gui

Is there any way that you can embed the file in the GUI itself.

You can with a combination: Use FileInstall to include the file with your executable, then embed it.

Ok so you suggest everytime the script launches, Fileinstall adds the  word file to script location, the user can then click and launch it from the  script location using the GUI.

IF the GUI closes the the file then gets deleted too

Something like that?

nope, FileInstall("source", "dest" [, flag = 0]) will dump/write/copy the file to a destination.
If you wanna remove it, you'll have to write a line of code to do so.

      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.

      Buttons on GUI to perform different tasks. SETUP is a task that involves displaying another GUI, doing calculations, writing lines to 2 external files, displaying information on GUI labels.  The info from the displayed GUI (quantity made and job completed YES or NO) must be included on the written lines. I cannot get the script to run synchronously (waterfall execution 1st one ends before 2nd one starts.) That means lines written to the files do not contain the required data.  I have read through FORUM and thought by inserting a boolean value and changing TRUE FALSE that I could solve this issue. I would have to set/reset the boolean before every function call to make it work. I've tried using Sleep but that just slows everything down and makes main GUI look unresponsive
      Is there a trick or tip someone can provide that forces synchronous execution?
      I am using OPT GUIOnEventMode
      Thank you for any insight into this issue.

      Hello everyone,
      I encountered this strange issue while working on a freelance project, I cannot give you the webpage/website on which this is happening because it is an internal site which is inaccessible externally. I am attempting to create a GUI with an IE control embedded in it, but when I navigate to the desired address, it shows a blank white page.
      The webpage does load if I use a different browser or normal (non-embedded) IE instance.
      I managed to get my hands on the source of the blank page:
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html> <head> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="res://ieframe.dll/ErrorPageTemplate.css" /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <title>Navigationen blev annulleret</title> <script src="res://ieframe.dll/errorPageStrings.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> </script> <script src="res://ieframe.dll/httpErrorPagesScripts.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> </script> </head> <body onLoad="javascript:navCancelInit(); "> <table width="730" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"> <!-- Error title --> <tr> <td id="infoIconAlign" width="60" align="left" valign="top" rowspan="2"> <img src="res://ieframe.dll/info_48.png" id="infoIcon" alt="Oplysningsikon"> </td> <td id="mainTitleAlign" valign="middle" align="left" width="*"> <h1 id="mainTitle">Navigationen til websiden blev annulleret</h1> </td> </tr> <tr> <!-- This row is for HTTP status code, as well as the divider--> <td id="errorCodeAlign" class="errorCodeAndDivider" align="right">&nbsp; <div class="divider"></div> </td> </tr> <!-- Error Body --> <!-- What you can do --> <tr> <td> &nbsp; </td> <td id="whatToTryAlign" valign="top" align="left"> <h2 id="whatToTry">Prøv at:</h2> </td> </tr> <!-- refresh page --> <tr> <td > &nbsp; </td> <td id="refreshPageAlign" align="left" valign="middle"> <h4> <table> <tr> <td valign="top"> <img src="res://ieframe.dll/bullet.png" border="0" alt="" class="actionIcon"> </td> <td valign="top"> <span id="navCancelContainer"></span><noscript id="refreshPage">Opdatere siden.</noscript> </td> </tr> </table> </h4> </td> </tr> </table> </body> </html> The ieframe.dll resources are a point of interest. I am not sure how the server is able to detect the embedded instance of IE ...
      Any suggestions? Here is a basic outline of the script:
      #include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Main() While True Sleep(1000) WEnd Func Main() ; Create GUI $hGUI = GUICreate("", $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT, $iLeft, $iTop, $WS_POPUP) $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() ;$oIE = _IECreate() ; This works, but it is not embedded in the GUI GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT) GUISetState() ; Navigate to the URL and authenticate _IENavigate($oIE, $URL) EndFunc Thank you for the advice in advance!

      Hi all,
      Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the Windows "fade effect" that occurs when a window appears or disappears?
      It is possible for a user to disable visual effects in windows in general through the system properties > performance settings, but I am interested just in fixing it for a particular window that pops up in my app.
      I would like it to appear and disappear instantaneously, snapping in and out, out of nowhere, rather than the short (maybe 300 ms?) fade in/fade out effect that windows has.
      Thanks for any tips

      I am struggling with activating the 2nd GUI.  References of https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Managing_Multiple_GUIs did not help.
      Gui2 and controls are created, but the buttons are not active.  I have tried to remove extra code.
      Thanks for any help.
