Output powershell script in console


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody.

Happy New Year ! May the AutoIt force be with you. 🙂

 

I created a function _RunPSHost() to launch and get output from Powershell commands/scripts.

As you can see with my code, it works with powershell commands but not with scripts.

Could you help me ?

 

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIConv.au3>

Global $g_iPSHost = 0
Global $g_sFilePS = @ScriptDir & '\TEST.ps1'

Test()

Func Test()
    Local $hFile = FileOpen($g_sFilePS, $FO_OVERWRITE)
    FileWriteLine($hFile, 'Write-Host test file')
    FileWriteLine($hFile, 'Write-Host END_OF_OUTPUT')
    FileClose($hFile)

    $g_iPSHost = Run('powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoProfile -command - ', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, BitOR($STDIN_CHILD, $STDERR_CHILD, $STDOUT_CHILD))

    _RunPSHost($g_iPSHost, 'Write-Host test cmd', False, True)
    _RunPSHost($g_iPSHost, '. "' & $g_sFilePS & '"', True, True)
EndFunc   ;==>Test

Func _RunPSHost($iPSHost, $sPSCmd, $bScript = False, $bVerbose = False)
    Local $sOutput = '', $sError = ''

    If $bScript = False Then $sPSCmd &= '; Write-Host END_OF_OUTPUT' & @CRLF

    If $bVerbose Then ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & '================================================== BEGIN RunPSHost ==================================================' & @CRLF)
    If $bVerbose Then ConsoleWrite('Commande : ' & $sPSCmd & @CRLF)
    StdinWrite($iPSHost, $sPSCmd)
;~  If $bScript Then StdinWrite($iPSHost, @CRLF & 'Write-Host END_OF_OUTPUT')

    If $bScript = False Then
        While 1 ; detects when data starts to stream in and then exits the loop
            $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPSHost)
            If @extended > 0 Then ExitLoop
            Sleep(1000)
        WEnd
    EndIf

    If $bVerbose Then ConsoleWrite('Waiting text "END_OF_OUTPUT"' & @CRLF)
    While 1 ; data has begun to stream, wait text "END_OF_OUTPUT" which tells first command has completed
        $sError &= StderrRead($iPSHost)
        $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPSHost)
        If $bVerbose And $sOutput <> '' Then ConsoleWrite($sOutput & @CRLF)
        If StringInStr($sOutput, 'END_OF_OUTPUT') Then ExitLoop
        Sleep(1000)
    WEnd
    If $bVerbose Then ConsoleWrite('Found text "END_OF_OUTPUT"' & @CRLF)

    If $sError <> '' Then
;~      ConsoleWrite($sError & @CRLF)
        $sError = _WinAPI_OemToChar($sError)
        $sError = StringRegExpReplace($sError, '(?s)(.*?)Au caractère.*', '$1')
        $sError = StringRegExpReplace($sError, '\R', ' ')
        Return SetError(1, 0, $sError)
    EndIf

    $sOutput = StringRegExpReplace(_WinAPI_OemToChar($sOutput), '\R*END_OF_OUTPUT\R', '')
    ConsoleWrite($sOutput & @CRLF)
    If $bVerbose Then ConsoleWrite('==================================================   END RunPSHost ==================================================' & @CRLF)

    Return $sOutput
EndFunc   ;==>_RunPSHost

Hi @MWIProd,

how your TEST.ps1 looks like? What exactly doesn't work properly?
How about to write your powershell scripts output to a file and read this?

Best regards
Sven

Hi @SOLVE-SMART,

 

TEST.ps1 is created in my au3script. 😉 

I prefer to read output from console. And I want understand why it doesn't work. 🙄

 

I omit to specify that I don't want launch another powershell instance to run PS script. I want to launch PS script(s) on the same PS instance.

If I use this code, it works. But this is not what I want to do.

$sCMD = "powershell.exe -file " & @ScriptDir & "\TEST.ps1"
$iPID = Run($sCMD, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD)
...

Understood 👍 . I will have another look.

Hello.

Interesting idea, I picked it up for a task, that I had to solve anyway.

Maybe this sample code is giving you a start:

; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Add_Constants=n
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
; *** Start added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
; *** End added by AutoIt3Wrapper ***
#include <Date.au3>

$Output = ""
$OutputOld=$Output

$Gui_W = 600
$Gui_H = 900
$Ctrl_H = 20

$MyGUI = GUICreate("PS helper", $Gui_W, $Gui_H, 50, 50)
$Input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 20, $Gui_W - 40, $Ctrl_H)
Opt("Guicoordmode", 2) ; cell relative
$BtnGo = GUICtrlCreateButton("Send command", -1, 10)
Opt("Guicoordmode", 1) ; absolute
$Edit = GUICtrlCreateEdit($Output, 20, 80, $Gui_W - 40, $Gui_H - 100)
GUICtrlSetState($Edit, $GUI_DISABLE)
GUISetState()
WinSetOnTop($MyGUI, "", 1)


$PSPID = Run("powershell.exe", @TempDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD +  $STDERR_MERGED)
AdlibRegister("UpdateOutput")


While ProcessExists($PSPID)
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop

        Case $BtnGo
            $Line = GUICtrlRead($Input)
            StdinWrite($PSPID,$Line & @CRLF)
            GUICtrlSetData($Input,"")
    EndSwitch

WEnd

MsgBox(0, "Powershell PID vanished", "PID " & $PSPID & " no longer exists.",5)


Func UpdateOutput()
    $Output &= StdoutRead($PSPID)
    if $Output=$OutputOld Then
        ; nothing changed
    Else
        $OutputOld=$Output
        ClipPut($Output)
        ToolTip(_NowCalc() & @CRLF & $Output)
        GUICtrlSetData($Edit, $Output)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>UpdateOutput

Interesting... 🙂

But this is what I want to do.

For example :

- define PS variables

- send PS command and get return

- launch PS script and get return

- send PS command and get return

- ...

Hey @MWIProd.  can you try replacing your "fileopen" command with this instead?

 

Local $hFile = FileOpen($g_sFilePS, 514)

This modification will create the powershell script using ANSI reading and writing mode.  I wrote a script once upon a time that would create powershell scripts using the contents of an edit box, but when I tried executing the script that was created, nothing would happen.  Using the above code fixed that for me.  Give it a shot.

Hello @MattHiggs

It doesn't work.

This code is for AutoIt Forum members (help testing)

Local $hFile = FileOpen($g_sFilePS, $FO_OVERWRITE)
;~  Local $hFile = FileOpen($g_sFilePS, 514)
    FileWriteLine($hFile, 'Start-Transcript c:\temp\log.txt')
    FileWriteLine($hFile, 'Write-Host test file')
    FileWriteLine($hFile, 'Write-Host END_OF_OUTPUT')
    FileWriteLine($hFile, 'Stop-Transcript')
    FileClose($hFile)

In reality, my PS script is an external file (No BOM format). It doesn't work too.
