Please explain the DllStructCreate(Struct, Pointer) syntax!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

From the documentation of DllStructCreate(), it can be called using the following syntax:

DllStructCreate(Struct, Pointer)
Struct A string representing the structure to create (See Remarks).
Pointer [optional] If supplied the struct will not allocate memory but use the pointer supplied.

Would somebody here explain the usage of Pointer parameter clearly with some examples?

Thank's in advance.

basically you are giving a reference to an already created data structure you are just defining what it contains to AutoIt

below is an entirely contrived example but it gives you the idea, typically the pointer would be returned from an API function

$tInit = DllStructCreate("BYTE[8]")
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0xFF, 1)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0xEE, 2)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0xDD, 3)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0xCC, 4)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0x11, 5)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0x22, 6)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0x33, 7)
DllStructSetData($tInit, 1, 0x44, 8)

$tInitPtr = DllStructCreate("BYTE[4]", DllStructGetPtr($tInit)) ; Using a pointer $tInit
For $i = 1 To 4 ; Show Contents
    ConsoleWrite("0x" & Hex(DllStructGetData($tInitPtr, 1, $i)) & @CRLF)
Next

; Setting the data here affects the original data
DllStructSetData($tInitPtr, 1, 0xBB, 1)
DllStructSetData($tInitPtr, 1, 0xAA, 2)
DllStructSetData($tInitPtr, 1, 0x99, 3)
DllStructSetData($tInitPtr, 1, 0x88, 4)

ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
For $i = 1 To 4
    ConsoleWrite("0x" & Hex(DllStructGetData($tInit, 1, $i)) & @CRLF)
Next

;lets start at second element (DllStructGetPtr($tInit) + 0 ) is initial (first) element
ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
$tInitPtr = DllStructCreate("BYTE[4]", DllStructGetPtr($tInit) + 1)
For $i = 1 To 4
    ConsoleWrite("0x" & Hex(DllStructGetData($tInitPtr, 1, $i)) & @CRLF)
Next

;lets start at third element
ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
$tInitPtr = DllStructCreate("BYTE[4]", DllStructGetPtr($tInit) + 2)
For $i = 1 To 4
    ConsoleWrite("0x" & Hex(DllStructGetData($tInitPtr, 1, $i)) & @CRLF)
Next

;lets start at fourth element
ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
$tInitPtr = DllStructCreate("BYTE[4]", DllStructGetPtr($tInit) + 3)
For $i = 1 To 4
    ConsoleWrite("0x" & Hex(DllStructGetData($tInitPtr, 1, $i)) & @CRLF)
Next

Hi,

the "struct" reserves some memory, and the "pointer" points to the first adress of this memory.

Here an (not season related^^)  example which demonstrates the usage of the so called "memory" (which belongs to NOTHING! (meaning the datatypes) )

;create struct
$struct =dllstructcreate("int;float[4];dword")

;fill struct with data
dllstructsetdata($struct,1,123456);int
dllstructsetdata($struct,2,4.80114160043301e+030,1);float
dllstructsetdata($struct,2,3.68584191575527e+024,2);float
dllstructsetdata($struct,2,7.71403089381636e+031,3);float
dllstructsetdata($struct,2,8.24605444209785e-019,4);float
dllstructsetdata($struct,3,0xDEADBEEF);dword

;read some data from struct at offset 4
$struct2=dllstructcreate("char[16]",dllstructgetptr($struct)+4)
msgbox(0,":o)",dllstructgetdata($struct2,1))

RTFC,

Any explanation that refers to IKEA furniture cannot, by definition, be considered "simple"! ;)

      Overview
      _Security__GetTokenInformation() returns a struct containing raw bytes that represents the requested token information.
      Take for example, if _Security__GetTokenInformation()  called with  $iClass parameter is set to $TokenUser, the function returns raw bytes that represents a TOKEN_USER struct, which is defined as follows:
      typedef struct _TOKEN_USER { SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES User; } TOKEN_USER, *PTOKEN_USER; Subsequently, the SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES struct is defined as follows:
      typedef struct _SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES {   PSID  Sid;   DWORD Attributes; } SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES, *PSID_AND_ATTRIBUTES; Problems
      Since SID has variable length, I suppose that interpreting the returned bytes as SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES struct won't be easy as usual.
      Questions
      Please inspect my GetTokenInfoUser function below.
      Have I got a correct value of Attributes member of SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES struct? If I have got the correct value, is my approach efficient? #include <Security.au3> #include <WinAPIHObj.au3> #include <Array.au3> Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1) Func GetTokenInfoUser($hToken) Do ; _Security__GetTokenInformation() returns a struct containing bytes that represents the ; requested token information. Local $tRawTokenInfo = _Security__GetTokenInformation($hToken, $TokenUser) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, _WinAPI_GetLastError(), "_Security__GetTokenInformation() fails.") ExitLoop EndIf Local $pRawTokenInfo = DllStructGetPtr($tRawTokenInfo) ; Since SID has variable length, I do not know how to interpret the raw bytes as SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES ; struct unless the SID length is known. Local $tagPtrSid = "align 4; PTR Sid" Local $tPtrSid = DllStructCreate($tagPtrSid, $pRawTokenInfo) Local $pSid = DllStructGetData($tPtrSid, 1) If Not _Security__IsValidSid($pSid) Then ; Just to make sure $pSid is a pointer to a valid SID MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The SID is invalid.") ExitLoop EndIf Local $iSidBytesLen = _Security__GetLengthSid($pSid) ; The length of the binary SID, in bytes ; After the SID length is known, the raw bytes are interpreted as SID_AND_ATTRIBUTES struct Local $tagSID_AND_ATTRIBUTES = "align 4; PTR Sid; BYTE[" & $iSidBytesLen & "]; ULONG Attributes" Local $tSID_AND_ATTRIBUTES = DllStructCreate($tagSID_AND_ATTRIBUTES, $pRawTokenInfo) ; Return the results Local $avResults[2] $avResults[0] = $pSid $avResults[1] = DllStructGetData($tSID_AND_ATTRIBUTES, "Attributes") Return $avResults Until False Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndFunc ; GetTokenInfoUser Func Main() Do Local $hToken = _Security__OpenProcessToken(_WinAPI_GetCurrentProcess(), $TOKEN_QUERY) If Not $hToken Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, _WinAPI_GetLastError(), "_Security__OpenProcessToken() fails.") ExitLoop EndIf Local $avResults = GetTokenInfoUser($hToken) If @error Then ExitLoop _ArrayDisplay($avResults) ; Display the results of GetTokenInfoUser() If $hToken Then _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hToken) Return Until False If $hToken Then _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hToken) EndFunc ; Main Main() Thanks in advance.

      When the type of a registry value given by RegQueryValueEx() is REG_RESOURCE_LIST constant (i.e. 8), the data received in the lpData (out) parameter is a pointer to a variable of type CM_RESOURCE_LIST struct.
      According to MSDN, CM_RESOURCE_LIST struct is defined as follows:
      typedef struct _CM_RESOURCE_LIST { ULONG Count; CM_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR List[1]; } *PCM_RESOURCE_LIST, CM_RESOURCE_LIST; Additionally, CM_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR struct is defined as follows:
      typedef struct _CM_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR { INTERFACE_TYPE InterfaceType; ULONG BusNumber; CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_LIST PartialResourceList; } *PCM_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR, CM_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR; Furthermore, CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_LIST struct  is defined as follows:
      typedef struct _CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_LIST { USHORT Version; USHORT Revision; ULONG Count; CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR PartialDescriptors[1]; } CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_LIST, *PCM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_LIST; Finally, CM_PARTIAL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR struct is defined like that (long enough to be posted here).
      I have no idea how to create these kind of structs in AutoIt.
      Please tell me how to write them in AutoIt just until the second struct (CM_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR).

      In the code that follows, it appears that DllStructCreate() is not allocating memory in
      $tag = 'byte val['&$iLength&']' . . Static Local $tvalue = DllStructCreate($tag) Running the code below, the problem does not show, but it does show in a much longer script: there _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile only writes about 30K bytes when it should write about 1MB, which it does when the code is
      $tag = 'char val['&$iLength&']' . . Static Local $tvalue = DllStructCreate($tag) It should write about 1 MB.
      I suggest caution in running the code below. On my PC, it caused a second instance of SciTE to appear at the top left of the Desktop, showing only the title bar, with a width of only approximately 200 pixels! Then rebooting the PC showed this at login. Further, double-clicking on the SciTE shortcut on the Desktop showed SciTE in the same way! (After running Regedit, and searching for SciTE, the shortcut behaves normally.)
      I would appreciate help in determining whether or not there is a bug in DLLStructCreate, preferably a way which does not clobber Windows. Of course, It is possible that there is a bug in my code.
      I have made $tvalue Static in the hope that this might make the code run properly. Doing this did not help.
      My code is based on code written by Authenticity and ChrisL.

      I know you can store functions in variables but I'm interested in storing functions in structs.
      Global $tWindow = DllStructCreate("hwnd hwnd;ptr delete") $tWindow.hwnd = GUICreate("") ; works Global $pDelete = GUIDelete ; doesn't work $tWindow.delete = GUIDelete ConsoleWrite("Delete using $tWindow.delete: " & $tWindow.delete() & @LF) ConsoleWrite("Delete using $pDelete: " & $pDelete() & @LF) Maybe I'm using the wrong data type for my delete member, I've tried int, dword, ptr, handle, hwnd.
