I'm trying to convert a ahk script to autoit, but without luck,

#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local $module = _WinAPI_LoadLibrary("xd2txlib.dll")
ConsoleWrite($module & @LF)

Local $module = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "Ptr", "LoadLibrary", "Str", "xd2txlib.dll")
ConsoleWrite($module[0] & @LF)

MsgBox(0, '_xdoc2txt()  Result:', _xdoc2txt(@ScriptDir & "\test.txt"))

Func _xdoc2txt($sFileName)
    Local $sfileText = ''
    Local $fileLength = DllCall("xd2txlib.dll", "int", 'ExtractText', "int", $sFileName, 'BOOL', True, 'int', $sfileText)

    MsgBox(0, '@error', @error)
    MsgBox(0, '', VarGetType($fileLength))
    MsgBox(0, '', $sfileText)
    Return $sfileText
EndFunc   ;==>_xdoc2txt

Here's the working ahk script:

myDoc := "test.txt"
ExtractText( content, myDoc )
MsgBox % content
ExtractText( ByRef OutputVar, Filename) 
    static hModule := DllCall( "LoadLibrary", "Str", "xd2txlib.dll", "Ptr")
    fileLength := DllCall( "xd2txlib\ExtractText", "Str", Filename, "Int", False, "Int*", fileText)
    OutputVar := StrGet( fileText, fileLength / 2 )



here's the ahk script https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=253

I have uploaded the dll, maybe someone can help?:)

What kind of type is "inst"? :)

  • 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.

Just for them, who want to have success at the end of the thread..

Here is my working example.

; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name ..........: _ExtractText
; Description ...: Extracts text from advanced documment formats (Doc, Docx, ODT, XLS, ...)
; Syntax ........: _ExtractText($sFilename[, $bProperties = False[, $hDll = 0]])
; Parameters ....: $sFilename           - a string value.
;                  $bProperties         - [optional] a boolean value. Default is False. If True, documment properties will be returned instead of the text.
;                  $hDll                - [optional] a handle value. Default is 0. Optional handle to previously opened xd2txlib.dll. By default the xd2txlib.dll (Expected in @scriptdir) will be opened and closed during the function call.
; Return value .: String, containing the text or documment properties or empty string and Error as follows:
;1 - The file does not exists.
;2 - Error during opening xd2txlib.dll.

Func _ExtractText($sFilename, $bProperties = False, $hDll = 0)
If Not FileExists($sFilename) Then Return SetError(1, "", "")
Local $bLoaded = False
If $hDll = 0 Then
  $hDll = DllOpen(@scriptdir&"\xd2txlib.dll")
  If $hDll = -1 Then Return SetError(2, "", "")
$bLoaded = True
$aResult = DllCall($hDll, "int:cdecl", "ExtractText", "WSTR", $sFilename, "BOOL", $bProperties, "WSTR*", "")
If $aResult[0] = 0 Then Return SetError(3, "", "")
If $bLoaded = True Then DllClose($hDll)
Return $aResult[3]
