Unknown function in AutoIT

Recommended Posts


Hi! I have another problem with AutoIT.  You see, I'm still the one who's just starting out with this great programming language. I have a problem with AutoIT, it seems not to recognize the "StringReplace" function even when it is by default. The code was made half in KODA and half of my own. It is a software programmed for the Italian language (I am Italian) and translate the SMS language into Italian correct. Would you help me? Thanks in advance.


#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hull = "hello"
StringReplace($hull, "hello", "hellx")

$Form1 = GUICreate("Linguaggio SMS A Italiano", 507, 498, 192, 124)
$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 24, 40, 465, 177)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Inserisci qui il testo che non riesci a capire:", 24, 8, 205, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Ecco il testo tradotto(non toccare questo campo):", 27, 237, 237, 17)
$Edit2 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 24, 264, 465, 137)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Traduci", 104, 424, 249, 49)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Case $Button1
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "qlc", "qualcuno")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "qls", "qualcosa")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "ke", "che")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "x", "per")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "pls", "per favore")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "tu6", "tu sei")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "zzz", "mi fai dormire")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "hagn", "Buonanotte")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "tvtb", "Ti voglio tanto bene")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "tat", "Ti amo tanto")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "lafs", "Amore a prima vista")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "fli?", "Flirtiamo?")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "msidt", "Mi sono innamorato di te")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "ba", "Bacio")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "midi", "Mi dispiace.")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "ntm", "Non ti merito")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "tdp", "Togliti dai piedi.")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "amò", "Amore")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "ap", "A presto!")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "cmq", "comunque")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "cvd", "Ci vediamo dopo")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "Tvb", "Ti voglio bene")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "nn", "non")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "risp", "rispondimi")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "cel", "cellulare")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "dom", "qualcosa")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "nm", "numero")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "fv", "favore")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "-male", "meno male")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "disc", "discoteca")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "se#", "settimana")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "+ o -", "più o meno")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "ts", "torno subito")
                     StringReplace(GUICtrlGetData($Label1), "tvtbcoa", "Ti voglio tanto bene come amica")

there is no such thing as GuiCtrlGetData. I believe you meant GUICtrlRead.

Thanks.  Strange, the error said that the error was in StringReplace. Thank you.

      Hi All,
           I have written a UDF for one of my requirement which replaces a single character in string with a sub string/another character. 
           I am using this for my requirement by calling below function as StrReplace("C:\Software\Autoit\Substr","\","\\") and gives result as C:\\Software\\Autoit\\Substr
           Please let me know if this can be improvised or any mistakes to correct.   
      ; Function Name:    StrReplace($INPUT_STRING)
      ; Description:      This function is to replace a character with another in a string.
      ; Parameter(s):     $INPUT_STRING     - Original String Value
      ;                    $STR_2_FIND     - Single Character to find the $INPUT_STRING
      ;                    $STR_2_REPLACE     - Substring/Multiple Characters to replace in place of     $STR_2_FIND value
      ; Requirement(s):   Replacing one single Character in a string with multiple Characters
      ; Return Value(s):  success - Output string after replacing a character with required character
      ;                    failure - 0
      ; Author(s):        smartkey
      Func StrReplace($INPUT_STRING, $STR_2_FIND, $STR_2_REPLACE)
          Local $OUTPUT_STRING = ""
          If StringLen($INPUT_STRING) > 0 Then
              If StringMid($INPUT_STRING,1,1) = $STR_2_FIND Then
                  $OUTPUT_STRING = StringMid($INPUT_STRING,1,1)
              For $i=2 to StringLen($INPUT_STRING)
                  If StringMid($INPUT_STRING,$i,1) = $STR_2_FIND Then
                      $OUTPUT_STRING= $OUTPUT_STRING & $STR_2_REPLACE
                      $OUTPUT_STRING= $OUTPUT_STRING & StringMid($INPUT_STRING,$i,1)
              Return $OUTPUT_STRING
              Return 0

      As with a lot of programming, the less manual repetition done to achieve the same outcome...the better.
      I package programs for network deployment at the organization I work for. Sometimes these applications require verbose messaging to the user, and sometimes by special request we have to turn that off and deploy silently.
      The way I currently handle these 2 scenarios is this.
      I have a function that builds the splashwin display screen to variable size depending on message length, and displays the desired message to the end user.
      Then at each point throughout my script as I need to make the user aware of what is currently happening, I inject a splashwin function call with the unique message pertaining to that specific event. ie. "Installing Microsoft Office, please wait..."
      In effort to build a more universal script to handle any type of request submitted. I've incorporated a switch command of '/silent'
      If cmdlineraw detects the usage of that switch when the script is triggered it sets a variable flag, ie. $silent = "on"
      Then at every splashwin call I make, I'm prefixing it with an IF statement that checks for the flag, and then does NOT display the message if that flag is "on". Or does display it if its not. Has worked for me just fine. But while I grow my programming skills and look for more streamlined ways of handling areas I find myself creating repetition. I'm curious if I can relocate that flag check. Taking it out of every single splashwin call, and injecting it into the function itself.
      Example of how I currently display or hide the splashwin based on command line...
      If StringInStr($cmdlineraw, "/silent", 0) Then
          $SilentSwitch = "ON"
      If $SilentSwitch = "OFF" Then SplashWin($Uninstalling & $ProductInfo[1][0])
      Some scripts have dozens of those splashwin calls littered throughout, so Is this the best approach I can take already? Or as stated earlier, can I pull the IF statement away from the splashwin call. And left the function as a whole either activate or deactivate as a result of the command line check.

      I wonder if
      AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode = Y can include run information about functions which are called within the main code. So far I noticed in the console that the function itself is called but no specific run information from  inside the function is provided. Is there a chance to show the entire debug log including functions in the console?
      I furthermore noticed a stop of information when a loop is entered. What could be the reason for that?
      Thanks for help.

      Junior Programmer here... 
      Not much experience with opening, changing and closing files.
      I am trying to replace strings in a Text file except StringReplace does not actually replace the text.
      Here is a sample of my code...
      #include <File.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> Local $iStrReturn = 0 Local $hFile Local $sText Local $sNewText ; Location of File to be read $sFileName = "C:\Temp\MyPlayer.exe.config" ; The default is FALSE. We want to change this to TRUE $bLoopChecked = True CheckBox() Func Checkbox() $hFile = FileOpen($sFileName,$FO_READ) ; Open file in read mode to get text If $hFile = -1 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when Opening the file.") Exit EndIf FileSetPos($hFile, 0, 0) ; No idea if I need to do this, grasping at straws $sText = FileRead($hFile) ; Read the file into $sText If $sText = 1 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when reading/writing the file.") Exit Else FileClose($hFile) ; Finished reading the file into $sText, so close the file. FileFlush($hFile) ; Manual says to use FileFlush between File Close and Open so here it is EndIf MsgBox(0,"Before Replacement",$sText) ; Displays the text read from the file to make sure something is there. ; Loop Check If $bLoopChecked = True Then ; Find the string return > 0 for success $iStrReturn = StringInStr('"<add key="LoopCheckbox" value=""False" />"', "False") ;MsgBox(0,"", "LoopCheckBox is " & $iStrReturn) If $iStrReturn > 0 Then ; If StringInStr returned > 0 the it found the string! ; The Meat of the code. This is where we have to replace "False" with "True" $sNewText = StringReplace($sText, '"<add key="LoopCheckbox" value="False" />"', '"<add key="LoopCheckbox" value="True" />"') MsgBox(0,"After Replacement",$sNewText) ; Display the text to see if it worked. $hFile = FileOpen($sFileName,$FO_OVERWRITE) ; Reopen the file to write to it, overwriting everything. FileWrite($hFile,$sNewText) ; Write the text to the file FileClose($hFile) ; Close the file EndIf EndIf EndFunc This is the file I am reading...
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration> <startup> <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.6"/> </startup> <appSettings> <add key="LoopCheckbox" value="false"/> </appSettings> </configuration> I tried opening the file with $FO_UTF8 and $FO_UTF8_NOBOM but got errors opening the file.
      The MsgBox "After Replacement" shows the value is still false.
