Where is the good old %1% ?

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Just wondering....

Is there any kind of command in AutoIt3, that does the same

trick as the %1% in AutoIt2?

I`ve tried to do the ExpandEnvStrings and then use %1%, but it didn`t work...

Maybe there is any other way of doing it...?

:whistle:

if you want to use command line, AutoIt3 has that one, just improved and put in an array.

Command line params

===================

The variable $CmdLine contains command line parameters.  Note the scriptname is not classed as a parameter, get this information with @ScriptName instead

$CmdLine[0]is number of parameters

$CmdLine[1] is param 1 (after the script name)

$CmdLine[2] is param 2 etc

example1:

the compiled autoit script bob.exe

This was run like this "Run bob.exe c:\temp1.txt c:\temp2.txt"

; bob.au3

if $CmdLine[0] =0 then exit; this will exit if no command lines are given.
msgbox(1,$CmdLine[1],$CmdLine[2]); this would output a msgbox title C:\temp1.txt and info would be c:\temp2.txt

; %1% is $CmdLine[1]
; %2% is $CmdLine[2]
; %3% is $CmdLine[3]
; %4% is $CmdLine[4]
; %5% is $CmdLine[5]
; %6% is $CmdLine[6]
; etc
; $CmdLine[0] = the total amount of command lines given to the program.

heres how its done

;; Example;;
AutoItSetOption ( "ExpandEnvStrings", 1) ;; Lets you use variables like in v2
$var = "blahblah"
MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "Here is the variable: %var%")
Exit

this is really just a VERY basic example i guess. When you use %varname% be sure you put it between "..." cuz i dont know if %varname% will work outside the quotes, just like $varname wont work inside the quotes :whistle:

hope this helped

;; Example;;

AutoItSetOption ( "ExpandEnvStrings", 1) ;; Does not Let you use variables like in v2

$var = "blahblah"

MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "Here is the variable: %var%")

Exit

ExpandEnvStrings is made for enviromentals strings, not variables. like %path%

test the code, then use:

;; Example;;
AutoItSetOption ( "ExpandEnvStrings", 1);; Lets you use enviromental variables like in v2
MsgBox(0, "AutoIt", "Here is the variable: %path%")

if you want a variable, use a $ as in $x or $filename

if you want to use a preset Enviromental string, use %path% or one of the AutoIt ones already done like @ScriptName, @ScriptDir, @ScriptFullPath, @WorkingDir, @AutoItVersion, etc.

AutoIt3 has some differences, but once you use it, you will see how many advantages
