I need to replace a desktop applications functionality. I'll call it App "A".
The application has defined 2 hot keys one that toggles between it and another window, App "B", and one that triggers keystrokes to App "B" to get data where App "A" can access it. Then tells app "A" to fire off processing of data.. Unfortunately when App "B" is a 64bit application this functionality no longer works.
For now I've hobbled together a work a round solution by using 2 apps with what appears to be similar abilities. AutoIt and a desktop application that allows me to define the 2 hot keys. The SutoItX Dll is great for my processes within App "A" as it uses VBA for event driven tasks.
The second app allows me to define the Hot keys and which windows they belong to.
My fail is on how to use AutoIT to define the hot Keys and link to specific windows.
So as I see this working:
App "A" launches and fires off internal VBA code that in turn sets up HotKeys. If App "B" is not found code shuts down without enabling the hotkeys.
A hot key of CTRL-F1 toggles, activates window, back and forth between App "A and "B" So the hotkey is captured only when either App "A" or "B" is currently the active focus. and swaps the active focus application window.
A hot key of CTRL-F2 from App "B", Send Key strokes to App "B" to place App "B" windows' content into windows clip board then switch to App "A" and send a keystroke, CTRL-F3, to trigger processing the clip board through App "A"'s normal event handlers. App "A" already knows that CTRL-F3 means to run custom VBA code to process the clipboard.
Any help would be appreciated here, thanks.
Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open. So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal. What could be the problem here. please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.
I've been trying to automate modification of an excel file and the last thing I am stuck on is deleting all the rows where the value of Column 13 is 0.
I believe the error is due to me not fully understanding the syntax so this is where I'm stuck:
Func Hotkey2() Global $aUsedRange = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1) _ArrayDisplay($aUsedRange) For $iRow = UBound($aUsedRange) - 1 to 3 Step -1 If $aUsedRange[$iRow] = 0 Then _Excel_RangeDelete($oWorkbook.Worksheets(1), $aUsedRange[$iRow] & ":" & $aUsedRange[$iRow], default, 1) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeDelete Example 2", "Error deleting rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) EndIf Next EndFunc
While my script properly locates the row which contains value 0 in Column 13, I am not sure how to set it to the corresponding row in the excel workbook? My above experiment gives me $vRange error and I've been toying around with it to no avail. The only way I get the Script to delete a row is by actually specifying "4:4" or "6:8" etc.
Where am I going wrong?
#include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Create application object and open an example workbook Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @ScriptDir & "\trans.xlsx") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example", "Error opening workbook '" & @ScriptDir & "\trans.xlsx'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf ; ***************************************************************************** ; Read data from a single cell on the active sheet of the specified workbook ; ***************************************************************************** Local $sResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default, "A1") If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example 1", "Error reading from workbook." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example 1", "Data successfully read." & @CRLF & "Value of cell A1: " & $sResult) Hi, all.
Ok, here is the deal. I have simple excel file called trans.xlsx. It's located in the directory of script. In general i don't care where to store it.
What i do need is to open excel file and copy one by one numbers from cells. I've tried different ways, examples. But i only get error, says: error = 3, extended = 1. I saw different posts from different years. I even tried to use simple example from manual file. But always get error.
In general my goal get numbers one by one and post it to let's say search filed in my PC one by one. Or to notepad (but one by one, in kind of loop).
I've learned how to copy or show in message box some info from other apps. But with excel i'm stuck.
I'm able to open needed window based on "title" of excel. But i don't succeed of copying info from cells.
Would be appreciate for any help.
So, in this code i'm trying at least to read from cell A1. Doesn't matter what Sheet.
I use Windows 10, Excel for Office 365.
Thank you in advance.
