Use AutoItx3.dll with Delphi

8 posts in this topic

I'm a newbie with AutoItx and i like to use the AutoItx.dll in Delphi to use it in my Delphi Programs. But i have no experience with using dll's

Can somebody give me some tips to start.

How to declare the ddl in Delphi and how to call the methods.

You'd probably have more luck asking in the Delphi forums... as thats the program your using, your just using a third party dll with it... Usage of Delphi is prolly a delphi forum thing... basically, this post is saying "i dont know". :ph34r:


Sitting comfortably behind the code.

Load Library in the memory

Delphi Dinamic Link Library

library DllTest;
  uses
  SysUtils, Classes, Forms, ComObj, Windows;
  var
  SomeBuffer : Pointer;
procedure MyDLLProc(Reason: Integer);
  begin
  if Reason = DLL_PROCESS_DETACH then
  { DLL is unloading. Cleanup code here. }
  FreeMem(SomeBuffer);
  end;
procedure ToolTip(strTip : string; x : integer; y : integer);
  var oAutoIt : variant;
  begin
    oAutoIt := CreateOleObject('AutoItX3.Control');
    oAutoIt.ToolTip(strTip, x, y);
  end;
  { More DLL code here that uses SomeBuffer. }
  exports
  ToolTip;
begin
  { Assign our DLLProc to the DLLProc global variable. }
  DLLProc := @MyDLLProc;
  SomeBuffer := AllocMem(1024);
end.

 

Exsample:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  type
  TToolTip = procedure(strTip : string; x : integer; y : integer);
  var
  DLLInstance : THandle;
  ToolTip : TToolTip;
  begin
    DLLInstance := LoadLibrary('DllTest.dll');
    if DLLInstance = 0 then begin
    MessageDlg('Unable to load DLL.', mtError, [mbOK], 0);
    Exit;
  end;
  @ToolTip := GetProcAddress(DLLInstance, 'ToolTip');
  if @ToolTip <> nil then
    ToolTip('Hello World!', 0, 0)
  else
    MessageDlg('Unable to locate procedure.', mtError, [mbOK], 0);
    FreeLibrary(DLLInstance);
  end;
end.

Do you think it is sensible to necro a nearly 9 year old thread?

Most of the users in this thread have been away for years.

If you have something to say, please create a new thread :)
