paste into an input box

Recommended Posts

stilllearning

I am very new to AutoIt so please be patient. I want to capture data from a terminal emulator as a text file then open the text file and paste it into an input box.

It won't paste into the input box - but does if I manually press CTL V so it does copy

Here is the code snippet

ShellExecute(@MyDocumentsDir & "\test.txt")

Sleep(2000)

Send("{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}")

Send("{LSHIFT}+{RIGHT}")

Send("{LSHIFT}+{RIGHT}")

Send("{LSHIFT}+{RIGHT}")

Send("{CTRLDOWN}+C")

Send("{CTRLUP}")

ProcessClose("notepad.exe")

InputBox("Question", "Work", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)

Sleep(5000)

Send("{CTRLDOWN}+v")

Send("{CTRLUP}")

$Hwnd = FileOpen(@MyDocumentsDir&"\test.txt", 0)
$Read = FileRead($Hwnd)
FileClose($Hwnd)
InputBox("Question", "Work", $Read, "", -1, -1, 0, 0)

Don't you have to open the file first to read it?

no

edit: from teh help file :(

If a filename is given rather than a file handle - the file will be opened and closed during the function call - for parsing large text files this will be much slower than using filehandles

But i dont think there is much text , if its going in a inputbox :P Edited by DexterMorgan
