RMChart in AutoIt

3 posts in this topic

RMChart is a freeware tool to create a various range of charts.

You may either use the DLL-Version or the ActiveX-Version.

I'd like to use the ActiveX one (more simpler) but:

there is no VersionIndependentProgID info for instantiating the object in AutoIt.

Any experience/suggestion in the matter?

Below there is an example code (not working):

$oShell = ObjCreate("RMChart.RMChartX")
If @error = 1 and $oShell = 0 Then
    MsgBox(16,"Error Message",'ObjCreate("RMChart.RMChartX")')
    Exit
Else
    MsgBox(0,"RMChart",$oShell)
EndIf

if Not Isobj($oShell) then
    MsgBox(16,"Error Message",'No Object created')
    Exit
EndIf

$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")    ; Initialize a COM error handler

; COM Error Handler example

Peppe,

I am not sure I am grasping what it is you are needing, and I believe that is why you havent recieved any responses.

Where are you needing VersionIndependentProgID? I am not sure if this is a part of RMChart that you cant figure out how to access, or a part of Windows you dont know how to find.

Peppe,

The AutoIt Helpfile, "COM Extensions to AutoIt", says:

"Most important is the "VersionIndependentProgID". This is the name to be used in an ObjCreate,...".

So, I used the oleview tool to finf this info, but it seems to me that it doesn't exist, and then likely I use the CreateObj funcion with the wrong classname. BTW, it's the same classname detected by Koda (Obj Inspector), and then the problem could be another one, maybe the ActiveX object is incompatible with AutoIt.

RMChart works very fine with other languages.

IMHO RMChart is a very impressive and useful tool, so I hope that some Autoitter tries it with success.

Here is another sample (not working):

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("AForm1", 470, 367, 193, 115)
$Obj1 = ObjCreate("RMChart.RMChartX")
If @error = 1 and $Obj1 = 0 Then
    MsgBox(16,"Error Message",'ObjCreate("RMChart.RMChartX")')
    Exit
Else
;~  MsgBox(0,"RMChart",$Obj1)
EndIf

if Not Isobj($Obj1) then
    MsgBox(16,"Error Message",'No Object created')
    Exit
EndIf

$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")    ; Initialize a COM error handler

$Obj1_ctrl = GUICtrlCreateObj($Obj1, 72, 40, 376, 248)
$btnStart = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Start", 352, 312, 97, 33, 0)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        
        Case $btnStart
