drag drop argument

4 posts in this topic

Hello, how do I get the argument from draging and dropping a file onto an autoit script (the filename would be the argument)? I know how to get the arguments from the command line, but not from dragging and dropping onto the script. Thank you.

If you mean that you drag a file onto the au3 script or exe then the file name will given by $CmdLine[1]. Look up "cmdline" in the help, and then choose "Running Scripts".

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

That did it, thanks. I didn't know that the cmdline array worked for the gui also. Thanks.

If you enter "drag" as a search term in the helpfile if give a fully working example script in the first entry GUICtrlCreateInput().
