Just need a simple example.

Recommended Posts

I know that there is a way to give your program command line parameters, but im unsure how to do it.

Ive read the help file information, but its very confusing.

Could someone please post an example script that I could learn from?

Thx

Command Line Parameters

The special array $CmdLine is initialized with the command line parameters passed in to your AutoIt script. Note the scriptname is not classed as a parameter; get this information with @ScriptName instead. A parameter that contains spaces must be surrounded by "double quotes". Compiled scripts accept command line parameters in the same way.

$CmdLine[0] is number of parameters

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

$CmdLine[2] is param 2 etc

...

$CmdLine[$CmdLine[0]] is one way to get the last parameter...

So if your script is run like this:

AutoIt3.exe myscript.au3 param1 "this is another param"

$CmdLine[0] equals... 2

$CmdLine[1] equals... param1

$CmdLine[2] equals... this is another param

@ScriptName equals... myscript.au3

In addition to $CmdLine there is a variable called $CmdLineRaw that contains the entire command line unsplit, so for the above example:

$CmdLineRaw equals... myscript.au3 param1 "this is another param"

If the script was compiled it would have been run like this:

myscript.exe param1 "this is another param"

$CmdLineRaw equals... param1 "this is another param"

Note that $CmdLineRaw just return the parameters.

Note : only 63 parameters can be return by $CmdLine[...], but $CmdLineRaw will always returns the entire command line.

I read that in the help file. But thats what is confusing. All i need is a simple example that would be a little easyer to understand.

This is the commandline lexing I have in AutoIt3Wrapper ... maybe that helps you ?

For $x = 1 To $CMDLINE[0]
    $T_Var = StringLower($CMDLINE[$x])
;MsgBox( 1, "debug", "argument: " & $t_var,1)
    $Parameter_Mode = 1
    Select
        Case $T_Var = "/Watcher"
    ; when AutoIt3Wrapper is lanched as watcher to see if the original AutoIt3Wrapper is canceled.
            $H_Cmp = $CMDLINE[$x + 1]
            $H_au3 = $CMDLINE[$x + 2]
            While ProcessExists($H_Cmp) And ProcessExists($H_au3)
                Sleep(500)
            WEnd
            Sleep(500)
            If ProcessExists($H_au3) Then
                ProcessClose($H_au3)
                _RefreshSystemTray()
            EndIf
            Exit
        Case $T_Var = "/?" Or $T_Var = "/help"
            MsgBox(1, "Compile Aut2EXE", "Compile an AutoIt3 Script." & @LF & "commandline argument: " & $T_Var & @LF & $V_Arg)
            Exit
        Case $T_Var = "/in"
            $x = $x + 1
            $ScriptFile_In = $CMDLINE[$x]
        Case $T_Var = "/out"
            $x = $x + 1
            $ScriptFile_Out = $CMDLINE[$x]
        Case $T_Var = "/icon"
            $x = $x + 1
            $INP_Icon = $CMDLINE[$x]
            $DebugIcon = $DebugIcon & "/icon: " & $INP_Icon & @CRLF
        Case $T_Var = "/pass"
            $x = $x + 1
;~          $INP_PassPhrase = $CMDLINE[$x]
;~          $INP_PassPhrase2 = $CMDLINE[$x]
;~          $INP_Allow_Decompile = "y"
        Case $T_Var = "/compress" Or $T_Var = "/comp"
            $x = $x + 1
            $INP_Compression = Number($CMDLINE[$x])
        Case $T_Var = "/nodecompile"
;~          $INP_Allow_Decompile = "n"
        Case $T_Var = "/run"
            $Option = "Run"
        Case $T_Var = "/debug"
            $Debug = 1
        Case $T_Var = "/au3check"
            $Option = "AU3Check"
        Case $T_Var = "/compiledefaults"
    ; $Option2 = "defaults"; Obsolete
        Case $T_Var = "/beta"
            $INP_AutoIT3_Version = "Beta"
        Case $T_Var = "/prod"
            $INP_AutoIT3_Version = "Prod"
        Case $T_Var = "/Autoit3Dir"
            $x = $x + 1
            $INP_AutoitDir = $CMDLINE[$x]
        Case $T_Var = "/UserParams"
            $s_CMDLine = StringTrimLeft($CMDLINERAW, StringInStr($CMDLINERAW, "/UserParams") + 11)
            ExitLoop
        Case Else
    ; when /run then optional parameters are allowed
            If $Option = "Compile" Then
                MsgBox(1, "Compile Aut2EXE", "Wrong commandline argument: " & $T_Var & @LF & $V_Arg)
                Exit
            EndIf
    ; Build the other params used for running autoit
            $s_CMDLine = $s_CMDLine & " " & $T_Var
    EndSelect
Next
