memory mapped file questions


Recommended Posts

hi guys  i have  in  c#  a code for memory mapped file (without file )

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles;
using System.Threading;

class Program
{
    // Process B:
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        try
        {
            using (MemoryMappedFile mmf = MemoryMappedFile.OpenExisting("Test"))
            {

                Mutex mutex = Mutex.OpenExisting("testmapmutex");
                mutex.WaitOne();

                using (MemoryMappedViewStream stream = mmf.CreateViewStream(1, 0))
                {
                    BinaryWriter writer = new BinaryWriter(stream);
                    writer.Write("0");
                }
                mutex.ReleaseMutex();
            }
        }
        catch (FileNotFoundException)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Memory-mapped file does not exist. Run Process A first.");
        }
    }
}

exist a mode  for read  by Autoit  ??

or  exist some documentation i find only this  but  is  old  and  give me rror in dll

thankz  at all

o thankz  i try to catch  a memory mapped  file  C# , in autoit    build  this  simple  code

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles;

namespace csharpmapmem1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            byte[] Buffer = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes("35;2020.06.26 10.00.01;ASK;1,12445;1");
            MemoryMappedFile mmf = MemoryMappedFile.CreateNew("Test", 1000);
            MemoryMappedViewAccessor accessor = mmf.CreateViewAccessor();
            accessor.Write(54, (ushort)Buffer.Length);
            accessor.WriteArray(54 + 2, Buffer, 0, Buffer.Length);
            Console.WriteLine("Memory mapped file created");
            Console.ReadLine();
            accessor.Dispose();
            mmf.Dispose();                
        }
    }
}

for  Autoit

#NoTrayIcon

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
#include <WinAPIHObj.au3>

Opt('WinWaitDelay', 0)

 _Receiver()


Func _Receiver()
    Local $hMapping = _WinAPI_OpenFileMapping('Test')
    If Not $hMapping Then Return

    Local $pAddress = _WinAPI_MapViewOfFile($hMapping)
    Local $tData = DllStructCreate('USHORT[1000]', $pAddress)
    Local $sText

        Sleep(2000)
        $sText = DllStructGetData($tData, 1)
        DllStructSetData($tData, 1, '')
        If $sText Then MsgBox(BitOR($MB_ICONINFORMATION, $MB_SYSTEMMODAL),   " (receiver)", "                                               " & @CRLF & $sText)

    _WinAPI_UnmapViewOfFile($pAddress)
    _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hMapping)
EndFunc   ;==>_Receiver

i  run   the  first C# code  and  after run a  autoit code  , but  not  appear nothing  and  not return error

whats  wrong ???

thankz at all

Hello. 

Just Make sure to review your code deeply.

 

#NoTrayIcon

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
#include <WinAPIHObj.au3>

Opt('WinWaitDelay', 0)

_Receiver()


Func _Receiver()
    Local $hMapping = _WinAPI_OpenFileMapping('Test')
    If Not $hMapping Then Return

    Local $pAddress = _WinAPI_MapViewOfFile($hMapping)
    Local $tData = DllStructCreate('byte[1000]', $pAddress)
    Sleep(2000)
    Local $bText = DllStructGetData($tData, 1) ;Get Text in Binary
    Local $tStr = DllStructCreate("char Str[100]", $pAddress + 56) ;Address+Offset where you write from C# //accessor.WriteArray(54 + 2, Buffer, 0, Buffer.Length);
    If $bText Then MsgBox(BitOR($MB_ICONINFORMATION, $MB_SYSTEMMODAL), "Show Binary (receiver)",  $bText)
    If $tStr.Str Then MsgBox(BitOR($MB_ICONINFORMATION, $MB_SYSTEMMODAL), "Show Text (receiver)", $tStr.Str)

    _WinAPI_UnmapViewOfFile($pAddress)
    _WinAPI_CloseHandle($hMapping)
EndFunc   ;==>_Receiver

Couple of small issues  I  foresee:

1-  Sender needs to close handle when file map is not required anymore 

2-  Receiver should erase content of the file map after reading so sender knows that content has been well received

why you use here  byte ?

and why you use ?

"char Str[100]

yes  of course  , but  first  i must  understund  how work memory mapp.

the  finel plan is  program A  in c#  put out  a tream of data continuosly , and  my program in Autoit  read them  in realtime and  do somthing

but a  step at time :) thankz at all

Because if you do not use byte or char or wchar, you will get only the first element of the array structure and not all the content of the array.

whats wrong ?

  protected override void OnBarUpdate()
        {

when the  bar is  update  do it

  byte[] data = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes ("This is a test vvvvvvvvvvvvv");
             
            
                using (MemoryMappedViewAccessor accessor = file.CreateViewAccessor())
                {
                    accessor.Write(0,data.Length);
             
                }

 

when  attach the indicator  over the chart ( only one time )

else if (State == State.Configure)
            {
                    file    = MemoryMappedFile.CreateOrOpen("Test", 1000,  MemoryMappedFileAccess.ReadWrite);
            }
         

when  remove  the indicator over chart (only one time )

  else if (State == State.Terminated)
            {
                file.Dispose();
            }

therfore  i  suppose  when barupdate rewrite  the file  like a stream , i suppose , but problably not understund  good

$pAddress is a pointer in receiver (= file mapping successful)?

Try StringToBinary($bText) instead of the new structure. > Edit: BinaryToString($bText) of course 🤐

but  with this

Local $bText = DllStructGetData($tData, 1) ;Get Text in Binary

convert  text in binary  why i must convert again ??

or  you intend somthing like this ?

    Local $bText = StringToBinary($tData) ;Get Text in Binary
