How to do a simple Echo to screen?

9 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm using AutoIt to do some scripts but I need to have its output in the console not using a MsgBox. Is it possible to do a simple Echo to the screen? (something like WScript.Echo in VBS).

Thanks.

This doesn't work!

As explained in the functions manual:

This does not write to a DOS console

And I want do write to the DOS console ;-(

What do you mean by "look in scripts to : Console"?

Hi,

what about?

#include <Array.au3>
#include<Constants.au3>

Dim $env_vars[1][2], $temp_line = "", $temp_env
$foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c set", "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

While 1
    $line = StdoutRead($foo)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
     $temp_line = $temp_line & $line
Wend

$temp_env = StringSplit($temp_line, @CRLF, 1)

; clean out any empty lines
For $x = $temp_env[0] To 1 Step -1
    If $temp_env[$x] = @LF Or $temp_env[$x] = @CR Or Not StringLen($temp_env[$x]) Then
        _ArrayDelete($temp_env,$x)
        $temp_env[0] = $temp_env[0] - 1
    EndIf
Next

ReDim $env_vars[$temp_env[0]][2]

For $x = 1 To $temp_env[0]
    $temp_line = StringSplit($temp_env[$x],"=")
    $env_vars[$x - 1][0] = $temp_line[1]
    $env_vars[$x - 1][1] = $temp_line[2]
Next

For $x = 0 To UBound($env_vars) - 1
    $lResult = MsgBox(1, $env_vars[$x][0], $env_vars[$x][1])
    Switch $lResult
        Case 1; ok
        Case 2; cancel
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch
Next

So long,
