Is possible build a script to send/receive commands in "Native Messagin" ?

If you install this extension:

And this complement:

You have a work example to send / receive messages from Google Chrome's plugin and NativeMessagingApp.exe.

I found the source NativeMessagingApp.exe's here:

I try build this script... But not work...

Global $msg = "@empty"

Global Const $CLIENT_START = '{"text":"Client Started"}'
Global Const $CLIENT_STOP = '{"text":"Client Stopped"}'
Global Const $CLIENT_CLICK = '{"text":"Client Click"}'

_DebugSetup("NativeMessagingApp2", True, 4, @ScriptDir & "\NativeMessagingApp2.log", True)

Global $read, $json, $out = ""

While Sleep(10)
    $read = ConsoleRead()
    If @error And $out Then
        _DebugOut("$read...............: " & $out)
        $json = Jsmn_decode($out)
        If @error Then
            _DebugOut("$json...............: @Error")
            _DebugOut("$json...............: @Ok")

        If IsObj($json) And $json.Exists("text") Then
            sendMessage('{"text":"' & $json.Item("text") & '"}')
        $out = ""
        $out &= $read

Func sendMessage($var)
    ConsoleWrite($var & @CRLF)
    _DebugOut("sendMessage===>" & $var)
EndFunc   ;==>Say


Edit the file:

And replace:
"path": "NativeMessagingApp.exe",

"path": "NativeMessagingApp2.exe",

Then plugin call the AutoIt script...

But is not functional...


About the file mainwindow.cpp, have this function:

inline QString sendMessage(QString data){
  unsigned int len = data.length();
  cout.write(reinterpret_cast<const char *>(&len), 4);
  cout << data.toUtf8().data() << flush;
  return "";

How re-write this to AutoIt?
How execute a flush?

Best regards.

flush most likely not needed 



although I would expect consoleread/consolewrite should be able to do what you need.

step 1 would be that you see the plugin from chrome starts your compiled exe. you should be able to see that happening with a simple gui window or thru taskmanager

      After fifteen years of working in AutoIt, I'm still a beginner, so I have ConsoleWrite() lines all over my scripts to help me find my mistakes. Is it likely that these lines are slowing down my compiled scripts? If so, would it make sense to replace all the ConsoleWrite() lines with
      If Not @Compiled Then ConsoleWrite("data") Or is it better simply to comment out those lines when I have things working correctly?
      I'm not sure there's a clear answer to this question, but I hope someone knows a lot more about it than I do.

      I've added ConsoleWrite lines to functions I've created.  The format for the ConsolWrite statements is : (@CRLF & $sPath  &  '('  &  @ScriptLineNumber  &  ') : *** Func _ABC() ***: '  &  @crlf ).  $sPath  is defined as the filepath to the file containing the function - Local $sPath = "C:\Users\Owner\Documents\AutoIt\NT8 Download Replay Data\DownloadReplayFunctions02.au3" 
      Local $sPath = "C:\Users\Owner\Documents\AutoIt\NT8 Download Replay Data\DownloadReplayFunctions02.au3" ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & $sPath & '(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : *** Func _oMenuItemHistoricalData() ***: ' & @crlf ) The result is that I can access the functions from the Scite output window when the function is located in another file which is included in the main file.  For some reason Scite adds a line to the code when I switch to the Include file from the output window.

      Why does the line get added to the script and can I stop if from appearing?

      Hello guys.  It's been awhile since I shared something. So today I want to share my last project.
      What's Loga?
      Loga is a simple logging library to keep track of code with an integrated console.
      Common log levels. Integrated console. Multiple instances. Custom color and font for each instance log level. Define output format with macros. Conditional and occasional Logging. Easy to use. Basic Usage:
      #include "..\Loga.au3" ;This are some of the default settings: ;Default log level $LOGA_LEVEL_TRACE ;output format: {Symbol}{LogIndex} {LevelName} {LongDateTime} {Message} ;Log to File is enabled. ;Log file name format: YYYYMMDDHHMM-Loga-InstanceIndex.log ;Custom Console is disabled by default. ;By default log to STDOUT. _LogaTrace("I'm Trace") _LogaDebug("I'm Debug") _LogaInfo("I'm Info") _LogaWarn("I'm Warn") _LogaError("I'm Error") _LogaFatal("I'm Fatal")  
      More examples here.
      Check Loga on GitHub.

      I am not very sure if I am all right to post here tho. Due to other forums have no respond at all.
      So I have my custom make google chrome extension, and it will load unpack into Portable Google Chrome, but it keep pop up the alert box

      Is there any way to disable it? Because my Portable Google Chrome will load as Kiosk mode, so that user can't be uninstall/disable the extension.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Haven't used AutoIt in years, so very rusty...
      I can make autoIT activate windows of different programs, but having a hard time getting it to activate different tabs on Google chrome.
      It only works if the window is open and all other tabs are closed.
      #include <Constants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) WinActivate ( "Calc" ) WinWait("Calc") MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 100, 200, 2) send("{shiftdown}{end}{shiftup}{ctrlDown}c{ctrlUp}") $title = ClipGet() ;send($title) ;this is the section where I would like a specific tab to be activated WinActivate ( "Create +Prospects | Simple CRM - Cent Browser" ) WinWait("Create +Prospects | Simple CRM - Cent Browser") ;Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1) ;Local $hWnd= WinWait("Simple") ;WinActivate($hWnd) MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 300, 500, 2) Send($title)
