Does AutoIt support "fun.exe -parameter"

6 posts in this topic

Does AutoIt support "fun.exe -parameter"?

For example, I have a "fun.au3" and generated a "fun.exe".

If I double click "fun.exe", it then could execute.

But I want add some parameter after "fun.exe", for example, I want to run it in "cmd.exe", and use this command "fun.exe -parameter".

Does AutoIt support this? How to?

Thanks!

Search the helpfile for $cmdLine. Just for kicks...

Command Line Parameters

The special array $CmdLine is initialized with the command line parameters passed in to your AutoIt script. Note the scriptname is not classed as a parameter; get this information with @ScriptName instead. A parameter that contains spaces must be surrounded by "double quotes". Compiled scripts accept command line parameters in the same way.

$CmdLine[0] is number of parameters

$CmdLine[1] is param 1 (after the script name)

$CmdLine[2] is param 2 etc

...

$CmdLine[$CmdLine[0]] is one way to get the last parameter...

So if your script is run like this:

AutoIt3.exe myscript.au3 param1 "this is another param"

$CmdLine[0] equals... 2

$CmdLine[1] equals... param1

$CmdLine[2] equals... this is another param

@ScriptName equals... myscript.au3

In addition to $CmdLine there is a variable called $CmdLineRaw that contains the entire command line unsplit, so for the above example:

$CmdLineRaw equals... myscript.au3 param1 "this is another param"

If the script was compiled it would have been run like this:

myscript.exe param1 "this is another param"

$CmdLineRaw equals... param1 "this is another param"

Note that $CmdLineRaw just return the parameters.

Note : only 63 parameters can be return by $CmdLine[...], but $CmdLineRaw will always returns the entire command line.

I tried the following example but failed.

The script is:

func startnotepad (ByRef $i)

While $i>0

run("notepad")

$i=$i-1

WEnd

EndFunc

And I run the following command in "cmd.exe"

startnotepad.exe 5

Nothing happened after I executed the command.

What should I do?

Thanks!

You have to actually use the array.

If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then
If $CmdLine[1] <> "" Then
$sent = $CmdLine[1]
EndIf
EndIf

Startnotepad($sent)

func startnotepad (ByRef $i)
While $i>0
run("notepad")
$i=$i-1
WEnd
EndFunc
