Computer Renamer Script

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I am having issue with this script. Basically I want to be able to type something into an input box. Click install and have it open my System Properties, go to the computer name and send the variable defined by the input box. So if I typed in.. "Jenkin's Computer" in the input box, it would send that to the "send($inv)". But I am just having syntax issues now. Any clue?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
   
    GUICreate("ZenRenameiT", 255, 85, 255, 255)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Type in the computer TE number and click rename.", 5, 5)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
    $inv = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 75, 25, 100, 20)
    $btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Rename", 95, 55, 60, 20)
    GUICtrlSetData($btn, $inv)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $msg = $btn
            If GUICtrlRead($btn) = $inv Then
                _Rename()
                    EndIf
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd


Func _Rename()

    Run(@ComSpec & " /c sysdm.cpl", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinWaitActive("System Properties")
    Send("{RIGHT}")
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{ENTER}")
    Send($inv)
EndFunc

This works :)

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("ZenRenameiT", 255, 85, 255, 255)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Type in the computer TE number and click rename.", 5, 5)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
$inv = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 75, 25, 100, 20)
$btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Rename", 95, 55, 60, 20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
        Case $msg = $btn
                _Rename()
            ExitLoop
    EndSelect
WEnd


Func _Rename()

    Run(@ComSpec & " /c sysdm.cpl", "", @SW_HIDE)
    WinWaitActive("System Properties")
    Send("{RIGHT}")
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send("{ENTER}")
    $x = GUICtrlRead($inv)
    Send($x)
EndFunc   ;==>_Rename

Edit: I removed some useless things... Now the button is called how it should.

ahhh I see! Thank you so much! :)

You're welcome ! :P The thing to remember from here is that you always have to use GuiCtrlRead($ControlID) when you want to do something with some data obtained from the user. :P

You could replace this:

CODE
Run(@ComSpec & " /c sysdm.cpl", "", @SW_HIDE)

WinWaitActive("System Properties")

Send("{RIGHT}")

Send("{TAB}")....

with this:

CODE
Run(@ComSpec & " /c sysdm.cpl,1", "", @SW_HIDE)

WinWaitActive("System Properties")

Send("{TAB}")....

There are more reliable ways to do this:

$strDomain = "domainname"
$strPassword = "password"
$strUser = "username"

$strNewComputerName = "newName"

$objNetwork = ObjCreate("WScript.Network")
$strComputer = $objNetwork.ComputerName

$objComputer = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=Impersonate}!\" & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2:Win32_ComputerSystem.Name=" & $strComputer & "")
$ErrCode = $objComputer.Rename($strNewComputerName, $strPassword, $strUser)
If $ErrCode = 0 Then
     MsgBox (0,"","Computer renamed correctly.")
Else
     MsgBox (0,"","Eror changing computer name. Error code: " & $ErrCode)
EndIf

Even easier:

Remember that changing the computer name requires a restart before it takes effect.
