Active Directory UDF - create CHM help file


Recommended Posts

Needed to unblock the file before using it, copying the examples isn't working correctly, either manually or using the "Copy to Clipboard" button, it doesn't include any of the new line characters for _AD_HasFullRights example:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Parameters= -d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6#AutoIt3Wrapper_AU3Check_Stop_OnWarning=Y; *****************************************************************************; Example 1; Get a list of groups the current user is a member of. Then check for the; first group in the array if the current user has full rights for the group.; *****************************************************************************#include <AD.au3>; Open Connection to the Active Directory_AD_Open()If @error Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Active Directory Example Skript", "Function _AD_Open encountered a problem. @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended); Get a list of groups the current user is a member ofGlobal $aMemberOf = _AD_GetUserGroups(); Check if the current user has full rights on the first group in the arrayGlobal $sUser = @UserNameIf _AD_HasFullRights($aMemberOf[1], $sUser) Then  MsgBox(64, "Active Directory Functions", "User '" & $sUser & "' has full rights on group '" & $aMemberOf[1] & "'")Else  MsgBox(64, "Active Directory Functions", "User '" & $sUser & "' does not have full rights on group '" & $aMemberOf[1] & "'")EndIf; Close Connection to the Active Directory_AD_Close()

Could you please have a look at the attached CHM help file and tell me what you think?

Confirmation only (System : Windows 7 SP1, 64 Bit :

As already mentioned by @Subz :

One has to remove the zone information from saved file attachments by clicking Unblock on the file’s Properties tab or by clicking to select a check box in the Security Warning dialog box ( information-about-the-attachment-manager ).

This applies to ALL function examples.

I had the same problem when running from a network drive.
It was caused by a security setting. As soon as I copied the file to a local drive it worked without problem.
Can you please test and post the result?

Unblocking the file will be no longer needed when the CHM file is part of the full AD UDF package (ZIP-file).

BTW, for those interested in "Alternate Data Streams" in general or "Zone.Identifier" in particular, there is a nice tool :

alternate-data-streams-viewer created by @trancexx

( @water : Apologies for going a little off topic ;) )

EDIT : A file loses its Zone.Identifier when it gets zipped.

The "Copy to Clipboard" problem is solved when the Examples get formatted.

Confirmed 👍 Both "Copy to Clipboard" and copying via CTRL-C/-V work.

Next step will be to modify the CSS to make the CHM look like AutoIt's CHM :)

The file is already saved on local HD, the problem was, as already said by Subz and Musashi, having to remove the check from the option "always warn before opening this file" from the security warning window that appears when opening a file downloaded from the web. Removing that check and then opening the file, then the content of the right panel is displayed correctly. Sorry

Thanks Subsz and Zedna.
I found the HH way this evening and will play with it during the weekend. Hopefully I (and you) will be satisfied with the result ;)

Done!

I have posted the latest version of the CHM file in post #1.
Any comments?

In the next step I will update the Example code box. Should then work like in the AutoIt help file.

This work is entirely based on tools created by MrCreatoR:

I simply modified some CSS definitions to make the result look like the original AutoIt CHM.
Therefore all the praise goes to MrCreator :thumbsup:
