Beginners problem with ConsoleRead

Recommended Posts

Hi -

I just got started with AutoIt which seems just like the kind of tool I need all the time!

For a script I need to pipe data from an application, my first attempt to do this failed misserably however :whistle:

My script is (test.au3):

$var = ConsoleRead(10)

MsgBox(0, "From keyboard", $var)


Which - for testing - I then just run as:

echo Hello | test.au3

But the script does not get any input but just gives me the emspy message box.

So obviously I'm missing something here, but I cant find any examples and Google for AutoIt ConsoleRead don't yield anything useful:(

Does anybody have a small example of using ConsoleRead I could have a peek at?
