/AutoIt3ExecuteScript variable space, can a variable defined in AutoIT script be used in .txt file AutoIT code?

Recommended Posts

Hello, basically I'm using /AutoIt3ExecuteScript and the RunWait function to run code within text files. I have a variable that is defined within the main autoit script, which I need to call from a .txt file which is run using /AutoIt3ExecuteScript. Unfortunately, I always get the error "variable $example is undefined" when AutoIT encounters $example in the .txt file. 

I've heard that there's no way to run code using a variable defined in the AutoIT script from another file via /AutoIt3ExecuteScript, but I want to make sure before I complicate my project any further.

Thanks!

  • I will always thank you for the time you spent for me.
    I'm here to ask, and from your response, I'd like to learn.
    By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

Hello barrano247,
As you're working a lot with /AutoIt3ExecuteScript , Run & Runwait, this could help you. You can pass parameters between 2 scripts, like in the detailed example I just worked on, based on 2 scripts named "Test part1.au3" and "Test part2.au3"

; This is "Test Part1.au3"
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $par1 = "1st par (variable)", $par2 = 2

$iPID = Run(@AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & chr(34) & @ScriptDir & "\test part2.au3" & chr(34) & _
      " " & chr(34) & $par1 & chr(34) & _
      " " & $par2 & _
      " " & "3" & _
      " " & chr(34) & "4th par (string)" & chr(34))

If $iPID = 0 Then
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "'test part2' didn't lauch")
   Exit
Else
   ProcessWaitClose($iPID)
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Great", "This message shows only after 'test part2' has ended")
EndIf
; This is "Test Part2.au3"
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$sParams = "$CmdLineRaw = " & $CmdLineRaw
For $i = 0 To $CmdLine[0]
   $sParams &= @CRLF & "$CmdLine[" & $i & "] = " & $CmdLine[$i]
Next
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Parameters passed from 'test part1'  to  'test part2'", Eval("sParams"))

$CmdLineRaw and $CmdLine[0] are always accessible, in  any script, without error when accessed.

The value in $CmdLine[0] indicates how many parameters have been passed from one script to the other. Here I passed 4 parameters : two directly in the Run() command (param 3 & 4) and two as variables created before (param 1 & 2), so we have the syntax ok for different cases.

Eval() without Assign() + the For/Next loop did a great job in "Test part 2", allowing to display all parameters fluently in MsgBox() with few code lines : nothing to change in  "Test part 2" even if you got dozens of parameters !

Hope this helps  :)

Very interesting, thanks for the help I'll have to try this!

@FrancescoDiMuro

RunWait( '"' & @AutoItExe & ' " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript '&matnomat&'.txt' ) ;runs (and waits till done) the code in file to load values from zenai

This is the line where I'm running /AutoIt3ExecuteScript in autoit (derp)

Heres the code in the text file

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$xpos = "1500"
$ypos = "-2000"
$zfpos = "-1500"
$zlpos = "-1650"
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 276, 510, 1, 60) ;click on lowest item in list
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 322, 494, 1, 60) ;click on move
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 258, 494, 1, 60) ;click on add item
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 288, 513 + (17*(4)), 1, 30) ;click on the new item to edit it
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 322, 494, 1, 60) ;click on move
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 85, 590, 3, 300) ;double-click on xpos field
Send("{BACKSPACE}") ;clear xpos field
Send($xpos) ;enter xpos info
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 85, 638, 3, 300) ;double-click ypos field
Send("{BACKSPACE}") ;clear ypos field
Send($ypos) ;enter ypos info
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 85, 686, 3, 300) ;double-click zpos field
Send("{BACKSPACE}") ;clear zpos field
Send($zfpos) ;enter z first
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 184, 507, 1, 60) ;click set first
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 85, 686, 3, 300) ;double-click zpos field
Send("{BACKSPACE}") ;clear zpos field
Send($zlpos) ;enter z last
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 184, 547, 1, 60) ;click set last
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 272, 512, 1, 60) ;click on lowest item in the list
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 292, 494, 1, 60) ;click remove button

This code works, but in line #12 w/ the ";click on the new item" comment ideally id pass a variable $spm instead of that 4 in parentheses, which is defined in autoit.

@pixelsearch Thank you so much for your help, I finally got around to testing your code and I got it to work in a 'test' run. I presume it will work in my actual script with the way I've implemented it.

I'l be sure to come back if I have any new questions!
