[Solved] WMI Query Question

Recommended Posts

FrancescoDiMuro
Posted (edited)

Good evening everyone :)
I'm working on a little project of mines, and I was trying to use WMI Object.
The question which I don't find an answer is: 

Once I do the query with WMI Object, something like "SELECT * FROM Win32_LogonSession", instead of specify the field of the collection returned, ( i.e. $colItems.Caption ), can I loop though each property and each value of the property, writing so one row of code only?
Hope my question was clear enough.
Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.

@Earthshine
Thanks a lot, Sir!
Since my knowledge of WMI is very basic, I didn't know about that, AND, I was "Googling" around, before creating this thread, and I found this:
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/2a0078db-2053-4e21-9262-62ffbc156862/enumerating-fields-returned-with-a-wmi-query?forum=configmgrgeneral

But, as it seems, that's not the same thing applicable in AutoIt.
By the way, thanks a lot :)

Best Regards.

i googled the following string:

enumerate wmi object properties autoit

it helps to ask the question clearly i have found with google to get more effective answers quickly. it's like my signature... LOL, I've been at this a long time as well. Happy programming. :)

Your signature seems like the phrase from "I Robot", when the Doctor says to Will Smith: "That detective, is the right question" :D
By the way, I was trying to query Win32_PointingDevice, which works like a charm; but, I was interested to see how properties which are arrays, were displayed...
For example, there is the certainty that PowerManagementCapabilities[] will always be an array?
In that case, I tried with:

 

For $objWMI_Item In $objWMIQueryResult
    For $objWMIProperty In $objWMI_Item.Properties_
        If IsArray($objWMIProperty.Name) Then
            ConsoleWrite($objWMIProperty.Name & " is an array!" & @CRLF)
        Else
            ConsoleWrite($objWMIProperty.Name & " = " & $objWMIProperty.Value & @CRLF)
        EndIf
    Next
    ConsoleWrite("--------------------" & @CRLF)
Next

But I don't know if this could be correct.
Thanks again for your help :)

Best Regards.

remember you are querying a database of sorts, you get a result set to iterate through. I don't think those are array's the way you are thinking.

and my sig is from I, Robot, maybe a little different but supposed to convey the same message.

that was a great movie, but nowhere near what Issac Asimov created with that story. But, I loved it anyway.

@Earthshine
Thanks for the reply :)
But look at this, and this.
How can you retrieve values from a Property which is an array, in the WMI query result? :)

@Earthshine
Yes I did... Now I've copy-pasted the code of that function, and applied to my script; but, there is certainty that the array will always be an array, and will always contains values? :)
Sorry for my newbie question :)

Best Regards.

Each time through the loop I would check to see if it was an array and if it was then usually get array

Good morning @Earthshine:)
So, a normal

If IsArray($objProperty.Value) Then
    ; Do stuffs with array
Else
    ; Do stuffs if is not an array
EndIf

would be correct, isn't it? :)
Thanks for your help.

Best Regards.

      I've made a library, based on AutoItObject UDF with the goal of implementing getter and setter functionality and make it possible to define new object properties in as few steps as possible.
      Thank you to @trancexx for getting me on the right track, and all users in Hooking into the IDispatch interface for the code to get me going.
      If I've forgotten to add credit, please let me know
      Example:
      #include "AutoItObject_Internal.au3" $myCar = IDispatch() $myCar.make = 'Ford' $myCar.model = 'Mustang' $myCar.year = 1969 $myCar.__defineGetter('DisplayCar', DisplayCar) Func DisplayCar($oThis) Return 'A Beautiful ' & $oThis.parent.year & ' ' & $oThis.parent.make & ' ' & $oThis.parent.model EndFunc MsgBox(0, "", $myCar.DisplayCar) More examples: https://github.com/genius257/AutoItObject-Internal/tree/master/Examples
      Version: 2.0.0
      AutoItObject_Internal.au3
      Documentation
      Edit2 (19th March 2017):
      First of all, sorry about the lack of updates on this project. I always start too many projects and end up ignoring old projects, if I run into problems ^^'.
      So I've started moving my AutoIt scripts to GitHub. I will still post the most recent script version here.

      Hello guys! 

      I am having some difficulty in achieving a very simple task here. I have gone through the forums and tried some examples and UDFs but I can't seem to work it out. I would really appreciate if someone could help me out. 

      Problem:

      Currently, I am logging the required feedback from the script into a log file in a simple way ... get the info in the var >> write it in the file 

      But now I am in need to perform some analysis and need some of the values to go into an MSSQL table  in the attached format
      Also, I need to be able to use Integrated Security" or "Trusted_Connection set as true or use the logged in windows credentials to connect to the server/database




      any help will be much appreciated!!!

If I run script with admin rights then the software gets uninstalled.
      At the following link there is a script by JLogan3o13 but it does not either uninstall software, unless run as admin..
      Is there some way to uninstall software using wim or wimc by providing user name and password?

       Hello all"
      I have curious problem with com object implementation of Sapi 5.1.
      In some cases }Some Voice engines] the metods for retrieve the voice parameters fails with error :Member not exists:.
      But the Retrieved Voice object can speak the given text, so It exists and work.
      Example of this type of Engine can be this one: http://download.kobavision.be/KobaSpeech3/KobaSpeech 3 With Vocalizer Serena - English (Great Britain).exe (can work as demo)
      So my question is> Is there some way to workaround or solve this issue?
      What i tryed:
      1. Typical use of Sapi.spvoice object:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
       
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $voice in $spvoice.getvoices()
        msgbox(0, "Voice", $voice.getdescription())
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc

      2. Implement workaround based on Nvda Screen reader sapi5 Library at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/source/synthDrivers/sapi5.py
      Thys code in Pascal should work, so i tryed to reproduce it in Autoit.
      Pascal code just as example:
                   SOTokens:=SpVoice.GetVoices('','');
                   for i:=0 to SOTokens.Count-1 do
                   try
                        SOToken:=SOTokens.Item(I); s:=SOToken.GetDescription(0);
      end
      In Autoit I tryed it like this:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $i = 0 to $spvoice.getvoices.count-1
      $name = $spvoice.getvoices.item($i).getdescription
      msgbox(0,"Voice", $name)
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc
      Both of this methods returning same Error ("Member not exists.").
      Thanks a lot for help.
