WinINet.au3 (FTP/HTTP/HTTPS/Gopher+)

106 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Purpose (MSDN - Windows Internet)

The Microsoft Windows Internet (WinINet) application programming interface (API) enables applications to access standard Internet protocols, such as FTP, Gopher, and HTTP. For ease of use, WinINet abstracts these protocols into a high-level interface.

Remarks

There have been many UDFs released previously that rely on WinINet functions, but not many that are just direct wrappers around the functions (the FTP UDFs are the main ones that come to mind). The aim here is to get these functions into the standard UDFs, so that these UDFs can provide a base for other functions that rely on WinINet.

I've implemented most of the functions, but I haven't tested most of them either (the important ones, like InternetOpen/Connect and various HTTP functions are mainly what I tested).

Indeed, the constants file is still very disorganized (and incomplete), but I'll try getting around to that another time. In the meanwhile, I'm releasing what I currently have for wider testing and peer review of sorts. Feedback is welcome, as always :P

Anyhow, test away!

Edit: Just a note... before you use most of these functions, you'll need to call _WinINet_Startup().

Edit: And uh... I don't have example scripts for every single function at the moment. That would probably help with testing...

Hah, maybe it's because I work on boring things that most people don't care about? :P

Exactly as you said :-)

I don't understand this WinInet area very much but I believe mrRevoked if he said you did good job :-)

So keep up good job.

Finished implementing

_WinINet_FindCloseUrlCache
_WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntry
_WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntryEx
_WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheGroup
_WinINet_FindNextUrlCacheEntry
_WinINet_FindNextUrlCacheEntryEx
_WinINet_FindNextUrlCacheGroup
_WinINet_InternetCrackUrl
_WinINet_InternetCreateUrl

That makes for a total of a whopping 91 functions (most of which probably won't ever be used, but they're there if needed... :P).

Wonderful.

I actually needed the "cache" functions.

Update: I've just tried to use the "cache" functions and I'm not too sure what to do.

I get _WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheGroup and _WinINet_GetUrlCacheGroupAttribute to work, but I'm not sure what to do with the result from _WinINet_GetUrlCacheGroupAttribute because what ever attribute I use it returns the same array.

#include <array.au3>
#include <WinINet.au3>

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

DllOpen("wininet.dll")

Local $search = _WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheGroup(0)
ConsoleWrite(@error & @CRLF)
_ArrayDisplay($search, "$search")


Local $attribute = _WinINet_GetUrlCacheGroupAttribute($search[1], $CACHEGROUP_ATTRIBUTE_GROUPNAME)
ConsoleWrite(@error & @CRLF)
_ArrayDisplay($attribute, "$attribute")

FYI, I'm on WinXP64, don't think it should make a difference and there a files under my current user IE cache.

I guess I'll have to wait for some examples.

Yippee. Just what I needed for a project of mine.

Thanks for the script ;)

@uteotw: Thanks, there is a bug with my implementation of the function (which I wholly expected). Here's an updated _WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntry in the mean time which should stop the error from occurring:

Func _WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntry($iCacheEntryType = 0)
    ; Set data/structures up
    Local $sUrlSearchPattern = "*.*"
    Switch $iCacheEntryType
        Case 1
            $sUrlSearchPattern = "cookie:"
        Case 2
            $sUrlSearchPattern = "visited:"
    EndSwitch

    Local $tCacheEntryInfoSize = DllStructCreate("dword")

    ; (dummy call to get required structure size)
    Local $avResult = DllCall("wininet.dll", _
        "int", "FindFirstUrlCacheEntry" & $WIN32_FTYPE, _
            $WIN32_TSTR, $sUrlSearchPattern, _
            "ptr",       0, _
            "ptr",       DllStructGetPtr($tCacheEntryInfoSize) _
    )

    ; (space slightly overallocated so we don't need to waste time creating the struct twice)
    Local $tCacheEntryInfo = DllStructCreate($tagINTERNET_CACHE_ENTRY_INFO & "; byte[" & DllStructGetData($tCacheEntryInfoSize, 1) & "]")

    ; Make DLL call
    Local $avResult = DllCall("wininet.dll", _
        "int", "FindFirstUrlCacheEntry" & $WIN32_FTYPE, _
            $WIN32_TSTR, $sUrlSearchPattern, _
            "ptr",       DllStructGetPtr($tCacheEntryInfo), _
            "ptr",       DllStructGetPtr($tCacheEntryInfoSize) _
    )

    ; Return response
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If Not $avResult[0] Then Return SetError(2, DllStructGetData($tCacheEntryInfoSize, 1), 0)

    Local $avReturn[2] = [$avResult[0], $tCacheEntryInfo]
    Return $avReturn
EndFunc   ;==>_WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntry

#include <array.au3>
#include "WinINet.au3"

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

DllOpen("wininet.dll")

Local $search = _WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntry()
ConsoleWrite(_WinINet_DllStructReadArray(DllStructGetData($search[1], "LocalFileName"), 600)  & @CRLF)

Unfortunately, the other functions need updating, but I won't be able to get to them until at least tomorrow.

_WinINet_DllStructReadArray(), I could I have missed it!!? I must have been blind when reading the list of functions.

Thanks for the _WinINet_FindFirstUrlCacheEntry() update and no rush for the rest.

It should hopefully be fixed now (new attachment uploaded). You'll no longer need to worry about the INTERNET_CACHE_ENTRY_INFO structures, as the information is now extracted into an easier-to-use array. There are examples on how to use the two functions included as well.

And yeah, you shouldn't really need to know about _WinINet_DllStructReadArray(), as it's supposed to be an internal function.

Edit: I forgot to make an example for _WinINet_GetUrlCacheGroupAttribute()... Well, anyway, it currently returns a struct (not an array) that you can read using DllStructGetData(). You can figure out the members of the structure by looking at the definition for $tagINTERNET_CACHE_GROUP_INFO in WinINetConstants.au3. That it's currently using a struct is subject to possible change for the future, so keep an eye on the changelog ;)

Ultima,

Looks like a very good effort! I just started a small test project to try and put a file to my server. Unfortunately, I can't get passed the connect function. Always returns zero. Is there a simple example somewhere? My code is below:

CODE
Local $hdl = _WinINet_InternetOpen('')

if @error then

msgbox(0,"Error","Open Error " & $hdl)

exit

Endif

$hdl = _WinINet_InternetConnect($hdl, 1, $server, 21, 0, $uid, $pw )

if @error then

msgbox(0,"Error","Connect Error " & $hdl)

exit

Endif

You need to call DllOpen("wininet.dll") before using any of the functions (as noted in the first post) because otherwise, AutoIt opens/closes wininet.dll every time you call a function. When the DLL is closed, any pointers/handles returned while the DLL was opened become invalid, and can't be expected to work when you reopen the DLL again (in another function).

I think I'll go with the _WinINet_Startup()/_WinINet_Shutdown() route next update...

Thanks Ultma. DllOpen("wininet.dll") got me past the connect issue. Next challenge is why put is failing. Still researching.

As well as high-level HTTP(S) functions ;) Then there's always Gopher+, but it's a completely foreign protocol to me xD

Anyhow, thanks for the compliments!

Hi,

looks really nice, but I guess creating some little examples what are the advantages would raise the interest of the ftp.au3 users.

Ultima,

Thanks for your help. I am in the process of creating some examples using your WinINet.au3 UDF. I have been successful in using the following functions:

_WinINet_InternetOpen

_WinINet_InternetConnect

_WinINet_FtpPutFile

_WinINet_FtpGetFile

_WinINet_FtpCreateDirectory

I am currently working on _WinINet_FtpFindFirstFile but having difficulity getting data out of the returned structure. In the code below, the message box displays 2 for @error and 0 for fname. What am I missing???

CODE
Local $ftp_ar = _WinINet_FtpFindFirstFile($hdl3, '/www/*.*')

if @error then

msgbox(0,"Error","Read Directory Error " & $ftp_ar[0])

exit

Endif

Local $hdl4 = $ftp_ar[0]

Local $struct = $ftp_ar[1]

Local $fname = DllStructGetData($struct,"cFileName")

msgbox(0, @error, $fname)

As far as I know you must use ABSOLUTE path:

Local $ftp_ar = _WinINet_FtpFindFirstFile($hdl3, 'ftp://ftp.somewhere.com/www/*.*')

I use FTP UDF and I use _FtpFileFindFirst() this way.

Zedna,

Thanks for the information. Funny thing. When I use the absolute path ('ftp://ftp.somewhere.com/www/*.*') I receive my "Read Directory Error" msgbox error after the call, which is trapped by @error. However, when I use my original '/www/*.*' path in the call, I don't get an error after the call. Just can't figure out how to get the file info out of the structure!!!

Ultima,

I think there may be a bug in the _WinINet_InternetFindNextFile code. The current code below sets @error to 0 on an error and returns true as if it succeeded.

; Return response

If @error Or Not $avResult[0] Then SetError(1, 0, 0)

Return True

Maybe the code should look like:

; Return response

If @error Or Not $avResult[0] Then

SetError(1, 0, 0)

Return False

Else

Return True

Endif

Note that _WinINet_FtpFindFirstFile has the same issue.

Thanks.
