ObjGet problem

Recommended Posts


I touched on this lightly on another post, but now am making it a main post because it doesn't make sense. If no answer here, I'll submit it as a bug. Why won't object get work on WMP? It has worked on anything else I've tried with an object. The object is correct because I can create it. I'm using WMP11. Am I doing something wrong?

$oWMP = ObjGet("","WMPlayer.OCX")   ; Get an existing WMP Object

if @error then 
Msgbox (0,"WMPtest","Error Getting an active WMP Object. Error code: " & hex(@error,8))
MsgBox(0,"Good","I See You")

Not all COM object register themselves in the ROT (running object table). If not there, ObjGet does not work. ObjGet does not work on InternetExplorer and many others either. So, it is not likely a bug.

FYI, On something like this you should also try converting your code to VBScript and testing it there before considering raising a bug for AutoIt.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Got you, thanks. I think that explanation should be with the objGet in the help file in the next version.
