Scrits' interaction or communication between scrits

Recommended Posts

Ka36ek

I wrote a few modules and managing script, which has GUI with settings for all modules, reruns them after errors and makes logs

Now I need some Universal method to create Scripts' Interaction or changing strings between them

Earlier I have only practice of programming on VBS for MS IIS,

and often have used there Global Strings

Are there something like SuperGlobal Strings in AI, which can be used by all running scripts?

I've search Help and Forum found a lot of difficult methods but it's hard to implement them

If smb advises to use common line or console, I kill him :)

Sorry, for bad grammar

Ka36ek,

This question has been asked and answered many, many times, so searching will get you lots of idesa!

My favourite to date is this one:

; Based on code from Yasheid

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 3)

Global Const $WM_COPYDATA = 0x004A
Global $sThis_Win_Title, $sThat_Win_Title
Global $iY, $hInput, $hButton, $hLabel
Global $sMsg_To_Send, $sMsg_Rcvd, $sMsg_Set = ""

; Set GUI title
If WinExists("First Instance") Then
    If WinExists("Second Instance") Then Exit
    $sThis_Win_Title = "Second Instance"
    $sThat_Win_Title = "First Instance"
    $iY = 300
Else
    $sThis_Win_Title = "First Instance"
    $sThat_Win_Title = "Second Instance"
    $iY = 100
EndIf

; Create GUI
GUICreate($sThis_Win_Title, 400, 150, 100, $iY)

$hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 20, 20, 360, 20)
$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Send", 160, 60, 80, 30)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 20, 100, 360, 20)

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COPYDATA, "_WM_COPYDATA")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ; Send close message to other window
            _SendData(WinGetHandle($sThat_Win_Title), "@exit")
            Exit
        Case $hButton
        ; Send message to other window
            $sMsg_To_Send = GUICtrlRead($hInput)
            $hWnd = WinGetHandle($sThat_Win_Title)
            If (Not @error) And ($sMsg_To_Send <> "") Then _SendData($hWnd, $sMsg_To_Send)
    EndSwitch

; Check messages received
    If $sMsg_Rcvd = "@exit" Then Exit
    If $sMsg_Rcvd <> $sMsg_Set Then
        GUICtrlSetData($hLabel, $sMsg_Rcvd)
        $sMsg_Set = $sMsg_Rcvd
    EndIf
    
WEnd

Func _SendData($hWnd, $sData)

    Local $tCOPYDATA, $tMsg

    $tMsg = DllStructCreate("char[" & StringLen($sData) + 1 & "]")
    DllStructSetData($tMsg, 1, $sData)
    $tCOPYDATA = DllStructCreate("dword;dword;ptr")
    DllStructSetData($tCOPYDATA, 2, StringLen($sData) + 1)
    DllStructSetData($tCOPYDATA, 3, DllStructGetPtr($tMsg))
    $Ret = DllCall("user32.dll", "lparam", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", $WM_COPYDATA, "wparam", 0, "lparam", DllStructGetPtr($tCOPYDATA))
    If (@error) Or ($Ret[0] = -1) Then Return 0
    Return 1
    
EndFunc  ;==>_SendData

Func _WM_COPYDATA($hWnd, $msgID, $wParam, $lParam)

    Local $tCOPYDATA = DllStructCreate("dword;dword;ptr", $lParam)
    Local $tMsg = DllStructCreate("char[" & DllStructGetData($tCOPYDATA, 2) & "]", DllStructGetData($tCOPYDATA, 3))
    $sMsg_Rcvd = DllStructGetData($tMsg, 1)
    Return 0
    
EndFunc  ;==>_WM_COPYDATA

Just compile it and then start 2 instances. You can then pass messages back and forth between the GUIs.

If you need to send only numeric values, it can be simpler.

Receiver

#Include <Misc.au3>
#Include <WinApi.au3>

Global Const $WM_MYMSG = _WinAPI_RegisterWindowMessage('WM_MYMSG')

Global $iData = Default

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_MYMSG, 'WM_MYMSG')
GUICreate('')

Do
    If $iData <> Default Then
        MsgBox(0, '', Number($iData))
        $iData = Default
    EndIf
    Sleep(10)
Until _IsPressed('1B') ; ESC

Func WM_MYMSG($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam)
    $iData = $wParam

Paulmito,

Given the phenomenal amount of improvements that the Devs have put into AutoIt (thanks guys!) since that version was released on 25 May 2007, I am not very surprised that the script does not work for you.

I seem to remember Valik suggesting that being 2 upgrades or more behind was a good enough reason to refuse support (or something along those lines). Your installation is now over 2 years old - why not upgrade? You get a whole lot more with the newer versions, honest! ;-)

Thanks for reply...

I cant update because autoit-v3.2.4.9 is the ONLY ONE who send keys to my desired application ! ;-)

I create another topic asking how that version sends they keys...
