Call Autoit Dll From Within Vba With Registration

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I'm in a work environment where I can't install AutoIt, but I can use AutoIt by just going to the executable. I'd like to call the AutoIt from with MS Access VBA using something like the following code. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

Help is greatly appreciated,

' Enter on single line in Declarations section of Module window.

Declare Function AutoIt Lib "C:\Usefuls\PC_Utils\autoit-v3\AutoItX\AutoItX3.dll" (ByVal hWnd As Long) As Long

Sub Test()

Dim intWindowHandle As Long

intWindowHandle = Screen.ActiveForm.hWnd

Dim oShell

Dim oAutoIt

Dim wshShell

''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

' Initialise Variables & Objects

''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

Set oAutoIt = AutoIt(intWindowHandle)

perhaps you can register it
regsvr32 AutoItX3.dll
check 'AutoItX3 1.0 Type Library' in References and do stuff like that
Private Sub Test()
Dim oAu3 As New AutoItX3Lib.AutoItX3
oAu3.ToolTip ("Help Me...")
oAu3.Sleep (5000)
oAu3.ToolTip ("")
End Sub

Amazingly, this works!

Thanks! (Unfortunately, I don't have any points to award -- just kudos)
