[solved] Capture output from external system call?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to execute something like:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>net localgroup administrators
Alias name   administrators
Comment     Administrators have complete and unrestricted access to the computer/domain

Members

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Administrator

The command completed successfully.


C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Grab the output and display it in my GUI control.

I did some searches on the forums here and found a way to pipe my RunWait into a text file and just read that back into the au3 app but that takes up a temp file. Is there a better way to do this that anyone is willing to share with me/us?

Please and thanks for reading.

#include <Process.au3>

MsgBox(0,"",DOS_Output("net localgroup administrators"))

Func DOS_Output($COMMAND)
_RunDOS( $COMMAND  & ">" & @TempDir & "\DOS_Output.dat")
$FILE = FileOpen(@TempDir & "\DOS_Output.dat",0)
$OUT = FileRead($FILE)
FileClose($FILE)
Return $OUT
EndFunc

Use the StdOutRead() Function.
