How to cancel, pls?

5 posts in this topic

$DLLorOCXpath = InputBox("Path to DLL or OCX ...", "Enter the path to the DLL or OCX you need to register.", "", "", 350, 125)     ; width, height, left, top
ClipPut(@SystemDir & "\regsvr32.exe" & " """ & $DLLorOCXpath & """")

MsgBox(64," DLL - OCX registration ..."," The information has been sent to the clipboard." & @CRLF & @CRLF & " (Retrieve this info by pressing ^V when you need to paste into the RUN box.)               ")

Exit     ; finished
I've started working with variables. I think I'm finally wrapping my brain around them somewhat.

The above script works fine. I need something for registering DLLs since I rarely need the syntax yet never remember what it is and it's a pain in the neck to hunt it down in my tips folders all the time. Whereas, I'm constantly in my AutoIt scripts folder, so this is a real timesaver for me.

Everything works fine to my amazement, except for the cancel button. I still haven't gotten a handle on getting buttons to work always. I've put different codes in different spots with varying results, but have yet to successfully get pressing the CANCEL button to close the AI box down.

Can someone help me out pls? Once I have one working example, I'll take it from there ... Naturally went through the archives, but no go on this particular type of syntax.

Thanks. :)

I assume you mean to cancel the input. It will set a return value and in the case of an input an error msg. You can just trap for the error.

$DLLorOCXpath = InputBox("Path to DLL or OCX ...", "Enter the path to the DLL or OCX you need to register.", "", "", 350, 125)     ; width, height, left, top
If @error then Exit
ClipPut(@SystemDir & "\regsvr32.exe" & " """ & $DLLorOCXpath & """")

MsgBox(64," DLL - OCX registration ..."," The information has been sent to the clipboard." & @CRLF & @CRLF & " (Retrieve this info by pressing ^V when you need to paste into the RUN box.)               ")

Exit     ; finished

Also, keep in mind, you do not even need to send it to the clipboard for the user to paste into the run box. You could simply do this instead:

$DLLorOCXpath = InputBox("Path to DLL or OCX ...", "Enter the path to the DLL or OCX you need to register.", "", "", 350, 125)     ; width, height, left, top
If @error Then Exit

Run(@SystemDir & '\regsvr32.exe /s "' & $DLLorOCXpath & '"'); the /s makes the operation silent.  Regsver32 will not say the dll was registered, even though it was.

Exit     ; finished

Well, wadaya know! That is so way kewl. I will definitely be using that one whenever I can.

If @error then Exit

Is this "legal"? Is this an okay thing to use for the CANCEL button? Seems way too easy <g>. :)

Thanks, this is really good to have, too. Registering DLLs is definitely something that I'll usu. want to handle manually after getting the info from this script, all the way down the line, but I can see having another for when I can do it silently, will be good. Both options are covered this way.

Thanks! :)
