Hi, 

I am new to AutoIT scripting and I am still learning. I am trying to communicate with a Labview application that acts like a server. it basically takes commands from the client. But for some commands, it also send back some data. 

When i am sending commands from my script, i can see that the labview is getting them. But i am not able to get anything back. I tried different code pieces that are available online in the forum.

This is the working piece of code which i been using to send data.

#cs
    This module is used to establish tcp connection with lab view
#ce
#include <File.au3>

Func SendCmd($cmd)
TCPStartup()

Local $IpAddress="192.168.10.101"
Local $Port="5353"

$Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress,$Port)
If @error Then
    ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ).' & @CRLF)
    TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
    TCPShutdown()
    Exit
EndIf

TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF)
TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
TCPShutdown()

EndFunc

SendCmd("wt42d")

 

This is slightly modified code to send and receive data, which is not working. I am not getting any response back

SendCmd("galil")


Func SendCmd($cmd)
TCPStartup()

Local $IpAddress="192.168.10.101"
Local $Port="5353"

$Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress,$Port)
If @error Then
    ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ).' & @CRLF)
    TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
            TCPShutdown()
            Exit
EndIf

TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF)

$ip = @IPAddress1

;create listening socket
$Listensocket = TCPListen($ip, $Port)
ConsoleWrite("Listening to Socket - " & $Listensocket & @CRLF)

If $Listensocket = -1 Then
    ConsoleWrite("Exiting..." & @CRLF)
    Exit
EndIf

;Accept incoming clients and recieve info
While 1
$connectedsocket = TCPAccept($Listensocket)

ConsoleWrite("Connecting to Socket - " & $connectedsocket & "Error -" & @error & @CRLF)
If $ConnectedSocket >= 0 Then
$ip2 = TCPRecv($connectedsocket,1000000)
EndIf
WEnd

TCPCloseSocket($connectedsocket)
TCPCloseSocket($Labview)

TCPShutdown()
EndFunc

I am not getting anything back. I am getting the following output in the console

+>Setting Hotkeys...--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+BREAK to Stop.
Listening to Socket - 544
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0
Connecting to Socket - -1Error -0

its going through that loop forever. i need to force stop it.

But when i open putty and send the same command, i am getting response right away. 

Can someone please help me with that.

Thanks in advance

TCP is a duplex connection, meaning you can use the same socket to both read and write (send and receive) data, so use a single socket with both TCPSend and TCPRecv. You don't have to use TCPListen for client connections.

Thank you TheDcoder. Base on your suggestion i made some changes to my TCP IP. Now it receives data.

SendCmd("galil")

Func SendCmd($cmd)
TCPStartup()

Local $IpAddress="192.168.10.101"
Local $Port="5353"

$Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress,$Port)
If @error Then
    ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ).' & @CRLF)
    TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
            TCPShutdown()
            Exit
EndIf
TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF)
;Accept recieve info
While 1
ConsoleWrite("Receiving..." & "Error -" & @error & @CRLF)
$Data = TCPRecv( $Labview,1000000)
ConsoleWrite("Data received - " & $Data & @CRLF)
WEnd
TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
TCPShutdown()
EndFunc

This code gives me output. 

Output is

Can someone help me to

1. exit the loop after getting the data

2. There are a bunch of commands where they dont return any data. So, is there a way(not using if conditionals) to not wait in that while loop for those set of commands

 

Thanks

I'm bored, let's see how much we'll spoon feed. (Notice that proper indents make the code easier to follow)

SendCmd("galil")

Func SendCmd($cmd)
    TCPStartup()

    Local $IpAddress="192.168.10.101"
    Local $Port="5353"

    $Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress,$Port)
    If @error Then
        ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & @error & ' ).' & @CRLF)
        TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
        TCPShutdown()
        Exit
    EndIf
    
    TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF)
    
    While True
        $Data = TCPRecv($Labview,1000000)
        ; If there is no error returned from TCPRecv and there is data Then
        If (Not @error) And ($Data <> "") Then 
            ; Print the data received
            ConsoleWrite("Data received - " & $Data & @CRLF)
            ; Stop looping, jumps to just after WEnd
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    WEnd
    
    TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
    TCPShutdown()
EndFunc

seadoggie01,

TCPRecv could be stuck in that while loop endlessly.

A better approach would be a loop counter.

A For/Next loop for example...

SendCmd('galil')

Func SendCmd($cmd)
    Opt('TCPTimeout', 10)
    TCPStartup()

    Local $IpAddress = '192.168.10.101'
    Local $Port = '5353'

    Local $Labview = TCPConnect($IpAddress, $Port)
    Local $nError = @error

    If $nError Then
        ConsoleWrite('!--> TCPConnect error number ( ' & $nError & ' ).' & @CRLF)
        TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
        TCPShutdown()
        Exit
    EndIf

    TCPSend($Labview, $cmd & @CRLF)

    Local $Data

    ; receive info
    For $i = 1 To 100
        $Data = TCPRecv($Labview, 32768)
        $nError = @error
        ConsoleWrite('Loop #' & $i & ' - Receive Error: ' & $nError & @CRLF & 'Data Received: ' & $Data & @CRLF)

        If $Data <> '' Then
            ExitLoop
        EndIf

        Sleep(10)
    Next

    TCPCloseSocket($Labview)
    TCPShutdown()
EndFunc

      I have a autoit exe file which is used in upload/browse file functionality.  This has been integrated with selenium framework and I am invoking the autoit exe using Java process and runtime. 
      Now the issue is when I run the scripts and invoke the autoit exe in local it works perfectly.  But when I use selenium grid or jenkins to run the scripts in another windows server it is not working.
      Can anyone please suggest any solution for this?

      Hello, the script below will read column A from an excel file - and if a value matches in the browser, it will click the corresponding link and click on a specific button to paste the data, then writes "Completed" in Column B.

      What i am trying figure out now is if the excel crashes while the script/loop is running, I want to relaunch the excel file continue to the last row before the excel crashed. So if the value of column B is not marked as "completed", it should continue from that row
      Appreciate any help that I can get to achieve this.

      Hello ,
      I am trying to use Websockets in AutoIt.
      It is to fetch live stock market prices , API is provided and documentation available for python language.
      The link for the code snippet is :
      https://symphonyfintech.com/xts-market-data-front-end-api-v2/#tag/Introduction
      https://symphonyfintech.com/xts-market-data-front-end-api-v2/#tag/Instruments/paths/~1instruments~1subscription/post
       
      https://github.com/symphonyfintech/xts-pythonclient-api-sdk
       
      Second Link is to subscribe to a list of ExchangeInstruments.
      Now I would like to get live stock ltp (LastTradedPrice) for a few stocks whose "ExchangeInstrumentID" I know.
      I am able to use the WinHttp object to perform actions using simple codes like below :
      I have the secretKey and appkey and can generate the needed token. And get the unique ExchangeInstrumentID.

      Below code is just for example of how I am using WinHttp. Unrelated to socket part.
      Global $InteractiveAPItoken = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\Config.ini", "token", "InteractiveAPItoken", "NA") $baseurl = "https://brokerlink.com/interactive/" $functionurl = "orders" $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("POST", $baseurl & $functionurl, False) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json;charset=UTF-8") $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("authorization", $InteractiveAPItoken) $pD = '{ "exchangeSegment": "NSEFO", "exchangeInstrumentID": ' & $exchangeInstrumentID & ', "productType": "' & $producttype & '", "orderType": "MARKET", "orderSide": "' & $orderside & '", "timeInForce": "DAY", "disclosedQuantity": 0, "orderQuantity": ' & $qty & ', "limitPrice": 0, "stopPrice": 0, "orderUniqueIdentifier": "' & $orderidentifier & '"}' $oHTTP.Send($pD) $oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText $oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status
          
          
      But am struggling to understand and use socket.
      Would be of great help if you can have a look at the link mentioned above and help with the code sample for AutoIt.
      To connect and listen to a socket.
      Thanks a lot

      Hi, I have a site that has the following elements below: 
      <div>More element here</div> <div>More element here</div> <div>More element here</div> When I do this in Auto It:
      Local $oSelectDiv = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "div") _WD_HighlightElement($sSession, $oSelectDiv, 1) I also tried to add [3], but it doesnt seems to work:
      Local $oSelectDiv = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "div[3]") _WD_HighlightElement($sSession, $oSelectDiv, 1) It always highlight the first one, but I am trying to highlight the 3rd in the list. Is there anyway to select the 3rd div without having to add any class/id in the divs, and without using XPATH? The structure of the elements in that site were built that way.

      My au3 script program needs administrator privileges on win10 to be executed correctly, because it needs to be added to the boot---Script code:RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", @ScriptName, "REG_SZ", @ScriptFullPath)
      I need to let the program automatically get administrator privileges, so I use a function of #RequireAdmin. Although the program can be added to the boot, but does not execute after system boot up? why is that?
      What should I do?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Update:
      I found that after using the #RequireAdmin function, the program cannot be executed after system boot up.
      An example is given below. after it is compiled, it will not be executed after system boot up in the following two ways.
      1. C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\
      2. RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", @ScriptName, "REG_SZ", @ScriptFullPath)
      why is that?
      example
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
      #RequireAdmin
      Func test()
          MsgBox(0, "", "this is test message")
      EndFunc   ;==>test
      test()
