How to get program output in console


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a script which shows a GUI. I want to run this script in command prompt. Now I can run it with this command

autoit3 my_script.au3

But I am not getting the program outputs in CMD. Is there any command switches for that ?. For some specific reasons, I don't want to use Scite editor or other editors.

@Nine, Thank you for the reply. I tried your suggestions but still I am facing the same problem. The command is working and my gui is running. But no outputs in CMD. 

This is my command.
AutoIt3 "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /run /prod /ErrStdOut /in app.au3

That is because autoit3.exe isn't an console program, so the idea is you compile with that directive to make it work!

@Jos,

I added "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" in the first line of my autoit source file. I think that is what Nine suggested. Please correct me if I am wrong. But still no outputs are in console. But the program is running.

That directive only makes the compiled program cui .. so running it with that directive doesn't do anything!

If you want to be able to display a console and write there in all 4 cases (GUI or CUI, compiled or not) you just need to use this:

Func CW($s = "")
    If @Compiled Then
        _CUI_ConsoleWrite($s)
    Else
        _ConsoleWrite($s)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>CW


Func _CUI_ConsoleWrite(ByRef $s)
    Local Static $hDll = DllOpen("kernel32.dll")
    Local Static $hCon = __CUI_ConsoleInit($hDll)
    DllCall($hDll, "bool", "WriteConsoleW", "handle", $hCon, "wstr", $s & @LF, "dword", StringLen($s) + 1, "dword*", 0, "ptr", 0)
    Return
EndFunc   ;==>_CUI_ConsoleWrite


; internal use only
Func __CUI_ConsoleInit(ByRef $hDll)
    DllCall($hDll, "bool", "AllocConsole")
;~  DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "bool", "SetConsoleCP", "uint", 65001)
;~  DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "bool", "SetConsoleOutputCP", "uint", 65001)
    Return DllCall($hDll, "handle", "GetStdHandle", "int", -11)[0]
EndFunc   ;==>__CUI_ConsoleInit


; Unicode-aware ConsoleWrite
Func _ConsoleWrite(ByRef $s)
    ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString(StringToBinary($s & @LF, 4), 1))
EndFunc   ;==>_ConsoleWrite

CW($text) outputs the string $text to the (resp. a new) console if compiled for CUI (reps. GUI) or the SciTE console if not compiled.

@jchd

Thank your for the code. Let me try it. I will inform you soon.

Just important note:

If you use directive 

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y

then you must compile such script with FULL Scite4Autoit3 and not only in standard Scite editor included in base Autoit instalator.

 

EDIT:

and of course you must use ConsoleWrite(...)  🙂

@Zedna,

Thank you for your suggestion. I think I need to explain a little more on this issue. So this is the scenario. I am writing a gui library based on win32 api functions like CreateWindowEx and it's siblings.  But I am using the Autoit's message loop. I am just creating a window with "GuiCreate" function and replacing it's WndProc function with my own function. But then the controls like button, label etc. are creating with CreateWindowEx function. So I want to check the code is working or not. And I am using ConsoleWrite function for that. It is handy when you move your mouse over a window and then it prints some nice messages in console. This is perfectly fine in SciTE editor. You will get live outputs in console. But I am using VS Code.  Currently I am using Damien's extension, but I would like to run my code in my favorite console emulator ConEmu64.
