How do I run AutoIT scripts synchronously within VBA code?

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm a newbie, so bear with my ignorance, please.

I generated & compiled a script that passes a variable to a program which copies text into Word 2003.

If I run the script .exe in a stand alone vb script:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

WinActivate("Document2 - Microsoft Word", "")

Sleep(200)

;Sends hotkey to activate BibleWorks popup dialog

Send("^+b")

Sleep(200)

;Sends book and chapter reference to dialog

Send($CmdLine[1])

Send("{TAB}")

Send("WTT")

Sleep(100)

Send("{TAB}")

Send("{TAB}")

Send("{TAB}")

Send("{TAB}")

;Copies text to Word document

Send("{ENTER}")

;Reactivates Word document

WinActivate("Document2 - Microsoft Word", "")

have you looked at AutoITX? - It may be more conducive to what you're trying to accomplish. Or you may need to add a loop that waits for the autoit exit code to ensure completion (and optionally, errorlevel branching) prior to resumption of activities in your vb code.


Reading the help file before you post... Not only will it make you look smarter, it will make you smarter.
