hi everyone i am a newbie.

i am using c# add references and select AutoItX3.dll after that using AutoItX3Lib;

and call all function easly.

but now i want to use autoit with c++

i am adding #include "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoItX\AutoItX3_DLL.h" and saw AU3_ControlClick and all other functions in main function but useless.

Any tutorial for how can i use autoit with c++ ?

 

Thank for helping.

Did you try the example 'AutoItX.cpp' ?

Did you follow the instructions in example?

#include <iostream>
#include <windows.h>
#include "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoItX\AutoItX3_DLL.h"



int main()
{
    HINSTANCE hGetProcIDDLL = LoadLibraryA("C:\\Program Files (x86)\\AutoIt3\\AutoItX\\AutoItX3.dll");

    if (!hGetProcIDDLL) {
        std::cout << "could not load the dynamic library" << std::endl;
        
    }

    else
    {
        std::cout << "Loaded" << std::endl;
        AU3_MouseMove(100, 200);
    }
   

Also i added project properties-linker-input-additional dependencies- and adding AutoItX3_DLL.lib in AutoItX folder.

I dont know this way is true but working now for me.İm waiting other simple idea and ways.

Either link the lib file or load the library as you did. Both should work.

You cannot cast strings from LPCSTR to LPCWSTR.....

Initialize WStrings like this with the 'L':

LPCWSTR clientw = L"*q.txt - Notepad";
