Understanding / Learning - C#


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

So I was searching through the internet and found a plethora of information to learn C#. 
However, some are way below par and does not explain very well. 

So, anyone can suggest a proper website or eBook or video course explaining C#?
 

I've learnt AutoIt (still I'm learning it) by making small programs, reading the forums, going through the F1 guide (huge help, seriously this helps alot) and reading the Wiki.
Any direction would be appreciated, just not off the edge of a cliff.. 

Kind Regards
Skeletor

you must do the exercises, the programming stuff in the tutorials and get it working to actually learn--can't just read or watch video, you must DO

 

install Visual Studio Community Edition and start doing the tutorials

My resources are limited. You must ask the right questions

Sorry, I'm a little late here, I agree with Skeletor, and if you want a specific resource I found to be quite useful, it would be this guy: https://www.udemy.com/user/moshfeghhamedani/ (although you have to pay for that, also prices on Udemy are weird and fluctuate wildly, one day a course can be £10, and the next it can be £100, so don't get ripped off).

Generally, when I'm trying to learn a new language, I'll set myself a challenge. One I quite like doing is consuming some sort of API, and displaying the information in some way, for example use this: https://www.tvmaze.com/api to fetch some information (based on some sort of input, can be from the console, or from some sort of UI if you're feeling fancy) about a TV show and display it in some way.

@Noviceatthis, thank you for this valuable piece of information. 
You, and anyone who replies, are never late, I want to grab as much information as possible to broaden my skill set. 

Kind Regards

      ...trying to get the MonthCal font size, given that when loading it ( GUICtrlCreateMonthCal() ), this Win32 control has the font size auto-adjusted by the OS and working with display scaling, getting the font that is visually congruent, getting this value should make it the perfect font size for my GUI.
      My question is how to get this ( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.windows.forms.monthcalendar.size?view=windowsdesktop-6.0 ) working from within AutoIt3.
      This should work in any PC given that the .NET supports this call in every version of .NET
      Thanks. ( I have no clue of C# or .NET )

      I have a project in mind that I would like to share.
      I would like to create example windows with standard elements like ComboBox, ListView, some Button, some text, some edit field.

      Nothing special just simple Window.Net form that can be created with this following UDF:
      or this one:
       
      The main idea is to easily provide possible modifications to the "Testing GUI Window", and no need for any other tool than the AutoIt + SciTE kit.

      Such "Testing GUI Window" will be very useful later on topic/threads/projects like:

      As I am not very familiar with NetFramework, I would like to ask for help with this project.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Hi AutoIt programmers, excuse me for bothering you with multiple topics.

      In AutoIt we can use Number() function to convert Hex string to number but it's output is different of C# output & and i wanna make it's output like AutoIt code.

      For e.g I use this in AutoIt:
      Local $dBinary = Binary("Hello") ; Create binary data from a string. Local $dExtract = Number(BinaryMid($dBinary, 1, 5)) ConsoleWrite($dExtract & @CRLF) And i use this for C#:
      using System; using System.Text; //NameSpace Is Use of Project Name namespace TEST { class Program { public static void Main(string[] args) { //declaring a variable and assigning hex value string dd = ToHex("Hello", Encoding.ASCII); decimal d = Int64.Parse(dd, System.Globalization.NumberStyles.HexNumber); Console.WriteLine("Result: " + d); //hit ENTER to exit Console.ReadLine(); } public static string ToHex(string sInput, Encoding oEncoding, bool b0x_Prefix = false) { byte[] a_binaryOutput = oEncoding.GetBytes(sInput); string sOutput = BitConverter.ToString(a_binaryOutput).Replace("-", ""); if (b0x_Prefix == false) { return sOutput; } else { return "0x" + sOutput; } } } }
      I say once again that excuse me for creating new topic, in fact i'm making a library for GAuthOTP from a topic in AutoIt.

      Hello,
      I was looking for a way to use the CLR functions to check a SQL 2016 database state, but I've been unable to find an example that I can get to work. Any help would be appreciated. Here's what I have, which always errors when I try to set the connection string and I'm not sure why. Thanks!
      #include ".\Includes\CLR.au3" #include ".\Includes\CLR Constants.au3" JustATest() Func JustATest() Local $oAssembly = _CLR_LoadLibrary("System.Data") ConsoleWrite("$oAssembly: " & IsObj($oAssembly) & @CRLF) Local $oSQLConn = _CLR_CreateObject($oAssembly, "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection") ConsoleWrite("$oSQLConn: " & IsObj($oSQLConn) & @CRLF) $oSQLConn.ConnectionString = "Server=serverip;Database=dbname;UID=user;PWD=aaaa;" $oSQLConn.Open EndFunc Edit: I am using ptrex's CLR UDF from here:

      I didn't like the search time of Simple Native Image Search, and being on windows 10 64bit, I couldn't get ImageSearchDll.dll to work properly.
      So I started researching image search routines and found this excellent post and set of replies find-a-bitmap-within-another-bitmap.

      I really liked the pattern that the Simple Native Image Search used, the clipboard usage and the method of searching. Although I think it could be improved by using some short circuit techniques to return sooner, like consecutive matched > 65% return | matched total > 85% return) , and I wanted the function to manage the click on the found image as well.
      So I just did a bit more research and a few trips to MSDN and stackoverflow, these two snippets allow me to replicate KyleJustKnows code, and click.  Another feature is that it also saves the image it captures to disk, so that if the image is not found you can check what was captured, and alternatively cut out a new search image to use.
      private void PrintScreen() { keybd_event(VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, KEYEVENTF_EXTENDEDKEY, 0); keybd_event(VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, KEYEVENTF_KEYUP, 0); } public Bitmap CaptureScreenPrtSc() { PrintScreen(); if (Clipboard.ContainsImage()) { using (Image img = Clipboard.GetImage()) { img.Save("ClipBoard.PNG", ImageFormat.Png); return new Bitmap(img); } } return default; } [DllImport("user32.dll")] [return: MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.Bool)] private static extern bool GetCursorPos(out MousePoint lpMousePoint); [DllImport("user32.dll")] private static extern void mouse_event(int dwFlags, int dx, int dy, int dwData, int dwExtraInfo); private MousePoint GetCursorPosition() { var gotPoint = GetCursorPos(out MousePoint currentMousePoint); if (!gotPoint) { currentMousePoint = new MousePoint(0, 0); } return currentMousePoint; } private void MouseEvent(MouseEvents value) { MousePoint position = GetCursorPosition(); mouse_event ((int)value, position.X, position.Y, 0, 0) ; }
      So after managing to compile the dll with COM support, with much reading of this forum and many posts from paulpmeier, ptrex, LarsJ, and others about loading .net, I managed to get this all working.

      Here is the BotIt Core:
      ; BotIt Core Global $sPath = "BotIt.dll" Global $RegAsmPath = "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe" Func BotIt_StartUp() RegisterBotIt() OnAutoItExitRegister("UnregisterBotIt") EndFunc ;==>BotIt_StartUp Func RegisterBotIt() RunWait($RegAsmPath & " /register /codebase /tlb " & $sPath, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE) EndFunc ;==>RegisterBotIt Func UnregisterBotIt() FileDelete("Step.txt") RunWait($RegAsmPath & " /unregister " & $sPath, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE) EndFunc ;==>UnregisterBotIt Func ActivateAndSearch($sTitle, $sImgPath, $bClick = True) WinActivate($sTitle) Sleep(1000) $oBotIt = ObjCreate("BotIt.DetectImageAndClick") ConsoleWrite($sImgPath & @CRLF & $bClick & @CRLF) $bRet = $oBotIt.FindAndClick($sImgPath, $bClick) Return $bRet EndFunc ;==>ActivateAndSearch  
      Usage:
      Do Sleep(500) Until ActivateAndSearch("Window Title", "PathToFile")

      I hope you enjoy!
