Hi there i jut started today with some COM script.

my point was to get the names of my Network adapters + how many there are.

are some research i found a script but i don't understand it completely.

script:

$strFolderName = "Netwerkverbindingen"

; Virtual folder containing icons for the Control Panel applications. (value = 3)
    Const $ssfCONTROLS = 3

    $ShellApp = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
    $oControlPanel = $ShellApp.Namespace($ssfCONTROLS)


; Find 'Network connections' control panel item
    $oNetConnections = ""
    For $FolderItem In $oControlPanel.Items
        If $FolderItem.Name = $strFolderName Then
            $oNetConnections = $FolderItem.GetFolder
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
    
;get the adapter names
    For $oNetConnections In $oNetConnections.Items
        MsgBox(0, "", $oNetConnections.name)
    Next

i pretty understand it but when i add and msgbox before the ";get the adapter names" code example:

MsgBox(0, "", $oNetConnections.Items)

i get nothing returned...

and even:

MsgBox(0, "", $oNetConnections)

so how can he do a for statement if there is nothing there?

ps. how to now what object names you can use like .items, .name, etc ?

thanks.

I'm no expert... but your getting a object collection and the message box is only dealing with a string.

Here is another bit of code using wmi if your on xp or newer:

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\root\cimv2")
$colNetCards = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")
            
For $objNetCard in $colNetCards
                
    MsgBox(0,'',$objnetcard.description)
                    
Next

To know an objects methods, properties etc. you need to look outside of autoit into the object. MSDN is a good source for many of the windows objects.

; Virtual folder containing icons for the Control Panel applications. (value = 3)
    Const $ssfCONTROLS = 3

    $ShellApp = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
    $oControlPanel = $ShellApp.Namespace($ssfCONTROLS)


; Find 'Network connections' control panel item
    $oNetConnections = ""
    For $FolderItem In $oControlPanel.Items
        If $FolderItem.Name = $strFolderName Then
            $oNetConnections = $FolderItem.GetFolder
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
    
    local $i = 0
    local $adaper[100]
    For $oNetConnections In $oNetConnections.Items
        $i = $i + 1
        $adaper[$i] = $oNetConnections.name
    Next
    
    MsgBox(0, "", $adaper[1] & @cr & $adaper[2] & @cr & $adaper[3])
