Displaying computer name in message box

8 posts in this topic

Hi there,

Unfortunately, it's been some time since I did any programming nevermind AutoIt so I have chosen this to get my teeth into.

I'm wondering where to start to just get the computer name displayed in a message box.

Thanks for any advice you could offer.

MsgBox(0, "Computer Name", @ComputerName)

Thanks George!

Now how would I remove the first three letters / characters off of the computer name? Our computer names are prefixed with department three character codes and it's the rest of the computer name that i need.

I'm thinking that I should read the computer name in as a string but then how i would take off the first three characters I don't know.

Thanks,

Devad

$sPrefix = StringRight(@ComputerName, 3)
MsgBox(Default, Default, $sPrefix)

Or

$sPrefix = StringTrimLeft(@ComputerName, StringLen(@ComputerName)-3)
MsgBox(Default, Default, $sPrefix)

Untested, but should work.

Cheers Kenton,

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

$strAsset = StringTrimLeft(@ComputerName, 3)
MsgBox(64, "Asset No", $strAsset)

$cName = StringMid(@ComputerName, 4)

MsgBox(0, "", "This Computer is " & $cName)
