Passing Variables

Recommended Posts

eagle4life69

I would like to know how I can pass variables through an exe... What I mean is, I have a program that is the same but depending on the shortcut I would have it do something different.

Example: (a different program)

Here is a shortcut I have

"C:\Program Files\EFI\PSI\Psmain.exe USER=Shipping,COMPANY=B"

the Variables would be

User=Shipping

&

Company=b

How Can I do this?

$CmdLineRaw contains 'USER=Shipping,COMPANY=B', split that string accordingly.

,or switch to a usage like:

"C:\Program Files\EFI\PSI\Psmain.exe USER=Shipping COMPANY=B"

$CmdLine[1] = 'USER=Shipping'

$CmdLine[2] = 'COMPANY=B'

,or switch to a usage like:

"C:\Program Files\EFI\PSI\Psmain.exe Shipping B"

$CmdLine[1] = 'Shipping'

$CmdLine[2] = 'B'

Search for "Command Line Parameters" in the Help-File.

This is all assuming that PSmain.exe is the compiled autoit executable you are coding.

Re-reading the question... is there any other assumption possible I don't see :P ?

I just worried that by this line:

Example: (a different program)

He might have meant that he wanted to grab the parameters that were sent to a different executable... to which the answer would be... "I do not think so".

Your answer was most likely on the right track.

Yeah, true, you might be right, in that case refer to #633581

No the original thought was correct. I am writing my programs with the front GUI's being the same but it can do different things. I used the other program as an example, Thanks I will give it a shot to see what I get
