How Do I Add A Commandline

17 posts in this topic

This is my first Post, a newbe.

I want to create an exe with a command line to enter data. To make things more concrete let the program test.exe consist of the following:

$y = $x * $x

where $x is entered in a command line test.exe 2 ,for example, and would cause the value of $y to be calulated as 4.

Is it possible to create such a commandline exe in autoit3?

do u mean like creating a calculator?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
; == GUI generated with Koda ==

$calc = GUICreate("Calculator", 350, 104, 192, 125)
$x = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 8, 49, 21, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$y = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 40, 49, 21, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
$xy = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 16, 72, 49, 21, -1, $WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("x", 80, 8, 9, 17)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("y", 80, 40, 9, 17)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("x and y", 72, 72, 38, 17)
$add = GUICtrlCreateButton("Add", 136, 8, 49, 25)
$sub = GUICtrlCreateButton("Subtract", 136, 40, 49, 25)
$mult = GUICtrlCreateButton("Multiply", 200, 8, 49, 25)
$div = GUICtrlCreateButton("Divide", 200, 40, 49, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Do
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $add
        Guictrlsetdata($xy,Guictrlread($x) + Guictrlread($y))
            Case $msg = $sub
        Guictrlsetdata($xy,Guictrlread($x) - Guictrlread($y))
        Case $msg = $div
        Guictrlsetdata($xy,Guictrlread($x) / Guictrlread($y))
        Case $msg = $mult
        Guictrlsetdata($xy,Guictrlread($x) * Guictrlread($y))       
EndSelect
Until $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Peter

Open the AutoIT help file, which is also the command reference, and look up InputBox. Put together the basic script and if it doesn't work, post it back here and we'll get it working... :think:

P.S. thatsgreat2345 took all the fun out of it... :-(

No I'm not creating a calcutalor. I just used a math example to have a concrete example to use in the discussion.

As another example I might have had a Program test1.exe that was called with a string in the commandline such as test1.exe "world" and the program would consist of:

$y = "hello" & $x

and would product the string "hello world"

So what I am asking is: Can I enter the data $x (ie "world" is this example) in a command line call to the compiled version of this program

im kinda lost here so yeah u can do that

$1 = "hello"

You guys are good (and fast). I will spend some time following up.

Thanks

No. I guess I am not stateing this well. Of course this is a trivial peice of code, thats why I put it together. Anyone can multiply two numbers or concatinate 2 strings. My question is how can I get the value $x (string or number is irrelavant) into the program when I call it as an exe. Does autoit3 have the capabilitiy of creating an exe with a command line for an arbitrary program

If you are talking about specifying parameters on the commandline from which you ran the program, as opposed to inputting data after the program is running, look up the $CmdLine[0] array in the help file. It still starts from reading the help file. :think:

For $n = 0 To $CmdLine[0]
     MsgBox(64, 'Example', 'Command line parameter $CmdLine[' & $n & '] = "' & $CmdLine[$n] & '"')
Next

Compile this script and run it from the command line with as many parameters as you like. You'll get the idea. :(

So here is the final nugget of knowledge.

My script is as follows:

$x = $CmdLine[1]

$y = $x * $x

MsgBox(64, 'Example', $y)

It is compiled to test.exe

I go to DOS to run it with a commandline and type in to the DOS window the following:

Test 2

The program generates a message of 4.

Next I intend to apply this to create an audio volume control.

Thanks to everyone.

So here is my application of a commandline.

I wanted a have a means of using a volume control without going through a GUI. The code is as follows:

Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

$slpos1 = $CmdLine[1]

Run("C:\WINDOWS\system32\sndvol32.exe")

WinWait("Volume Control","")

If Not WinActive("Volume Control","") Then WinActivate("Volume Control","")

WinMove ( "Volume Control", "", 133,57,456,327 )

$x1 = 182

$y1 = 13

MouseMove($x1,$y1)

MouseDown("left")

MouseUp("left")

$y1 = (236-170) * $slpos1 + 167

$x1 = 69

MouseMove($x1,$y1)

MouseDown("left")

MouseUp("left")

MouseMove($x1,$y1)

MouseDown("left")

MouseUp("left")

MouseMove($x1,$y1)

MouseDown("left")

MouseUp("left")

If I want to move the volume slider to 40% volume, I launch it with a commandline call of "testvol .4"

If anyone has other ideas, I am all ears.

Your call to the command line parameter looks right ($CmdLine[1]), but I'm not sure what you mouse commands are doing. What happens when you run it? :think: Edited by PsaltyDS
