Hi, i'm trying to use an alternative to FileOpenDialog, FileOpen would work for me, but i can't get it work in this script.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

Dim $sReportName
Dim $objCRApp
Dim $objCRReport
Dim $objCRViewer
Dim $CrystalExportOptions
Dim $ExportFileName
Dim $ExportType

;~$sReportName = FileOpenDialog("C:\test\zNC\engine\Vinhos\VinhosTotal", "", "RPT (*.rpt)", 3);Filter "." means all
$sReportName = FileOpen("C:\test\zNC\engine\Vinhos\VinhosTotal.rpt", "0")
$objCRApp = ObjCreate("CrystalRuntime.Application.11")
If $objCRApp = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not create CrystalRuntime Application Object")
$objCRReport = $objCRApp.OpenReport($sReportName)
If $objCRReport = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not open report: " & $sReportName)

$objCRViewer = ObjCreate("CrystalReports11.ActiveXReportViewer.1")

; Create a simple GUI for our output
;~ $hndReportViewer = GUICreate ( "Embedded Crystal Reports Export test", 640, 580,(@DesktopWidth-640)/2, (@DesktopHeight-580)/2 , $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_VISIBLE + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)
;~ If $hndReportViewer = 0 Then
;~     MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not create Window to display Crystal Reports control")
;~     Exit
;~ EndIf
;Creates an ActiveX control in the GUI.
;~ $GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj ( $objCRViewer, -1, -1, 640, 580)
;~ If $GUIActiveX = 0 Then
;~     MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not create ActiveX Control in GUI")
;~     Exit
;~ EndIf
;~ GUICtrlSetResizing ( $GUIActiveX, $GUI_DOCKAUTO)

; Show GUI
;~ GUISetState ()

$objCRViewer.ReportSource = $objCRReport

; Display the Report to watch automation
; The report displays a "0" in control 20005 while the report is loading
While ControlGetText("Embedded Crystal Reports printing test", "", 20005) = "0"

$CrystalExportOptions = $objCRReport.ExportOptions
$ExportFileName = "C:\ERPSystem\zNC\engine\Vinhos\ExportedReport.PDF"
$ExportType = 31

$CrystalExportOptions.DiskFileName = $ExportFileName
$CrystalExportOptions.FormatType = $ExportType
$CrystalExportOptions.DestinationType = 1
$objCRReport.Export ( False )
WinWaitClose("Export", "", 30)


To solve my problem i just remove the "FileOpen" like that:

$sReportName = "C:\test\zNC\engine\Vinhos\VinhosTotal.rpt"

That way it will not prompt me to select the file.

Why do you want to open the file in AutoIt? This doesn't make sense to me because you are trying to pass the file handle from AutoIt into the object's OpenReport method. Wouldn't you just pass the file's full path into the method?

What i'm trying to do is generating the report and export to PDF. That script it's doing exacly that, but i dont want need to select the file with the "FileOpenDialog", i have tried to use "FileOpen" intead, but with no success.


Just solve my issue. Will add at beginning.
