#3999 Completed _WinAPI_OemToChar - improved implementation Jpm AspirinJunkie
Description

The current implementation of the function _WinAPI_OemToChar() uses "str" as the string parameters for DllCall() as the data type for the strings. This means that the size of the buffer for the output string is fixed at 65536 characters. With small strings, this leads to unused memory and large strings no longer fit into the buffer. The second problem was solved in the current implementation by splitting the input string into pieces of 65536 characters, processing them individually and then reassembling them.

The following alternative implementation is now proposed instead:

Func _WinAPI_OemToChar($sStr)
        ; input string
        Local $tIn = DllStructCreate("CHAR[" & StringLen($sStr) + 1 & "]")
        DllStructSetData($tIn, 1, $sStr)

        ; output buffer
        Local $tOut = DllStructCreate("CHAR[" & StringLen($sStr) + 1 & "]")

        Local $aCall = DllCall("user32.dll", "BOOL", "OemToCharA", "PTR", DllStructGetPtr($tIn), "PTR", DllStructGetPtr($tOut))
        If @error Or Not $aCall[0] Then Return SetError(@error + 10, @extended, '')
                
        Return DllStructGetData($tOut, 1)
EndFunc   ;==>_WinAPI_OemToChar

By manually creating the buffer in the correct size, memory wastage is prevented for small strings and multiple executions of DllCall are eliminated for large strings. This results in advantages over the previous implementation in terms of memory efficiency and performance without any recognizable disadvantages.

The following script demonstrates a performance comparison of the two implementations:

#include <WinAPIConv.au3>
#include <String.au3>

Global Const $aN = [1e1, 1e2, 1e3, 1e4, 1e5, 1e6, 1e7, 1e8]
Global Const $iRUNS = 10
Global $iT, $iT1, $iT2

Global $sMeasureFormat = "%15.3f  ms", $dFormLen = StringLen(StringFormat($sMeasureFormat, 0))

Global $sHeader = StringFormat("\n% 11s\t% " & $dFormLen & "s\t% " & $dFormLen & "s% 13s\n", "String size", "_WinAPI_OemToChar", "_WinAPI_OemToChar2", "Speedup")
ConsoleWrite($sHeader & _StringRepeat("-", 64))



For $iN In $aN
        
        ; put some preparation stuff here
        Global $sString = _StringRepeat("ß", $iN)
        ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("\n% 11d", StringLen($sString)))

        ; the original _WinAPI_OemToChar()
        $iT = TimerInit()
        For $i = 1 To $iRUNS
                _WinAPI_OemToChar($sString)
        Next
        $iT1 = TimerDiff($iT)
        ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("\t" & $sMeasureFormat, $iT1 / $iRUNS))

        ; the modified _WinAPI_OemToChar
        $iT = TimerInit()
        For $i = 1 To $iRUNS
                _WinAPI_OemToChar2($sString)
        Next
        $iT2 = TimerDiff($iT)
        ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("\t" & $sMeasureFormat, $iT2 / $iRUNS))

        ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("\t%10.1f %%", (1 - $iT2 / $iT1) * 100))
Next
ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & @CRLF)



Func _WinAPI_OemToChar2($sStr)
        ; input string
        Local $tIn = DllStructCreate("CHAR[" & StringLen($sStr) + 1 & "]")
        DllStructSetData($tIn, 1, $sStr)

        ; output buffer
        Local $tOut = DllStructCreate("CHAR[" & StringLen($sStr) + 1 & "]")

        Local $aCall = DllCall("user32.dll", "BOOL", "OemToCharA", "PTR", DllStructGetPtr($tIn), "PTR", DllStructGetPtr($tOut))
        If @error Or Not $aCall[0] Then Return SetError(@error + 10, @extended, '')
                
        Return DllStructGetData($tOut, 1)
EndFunc   ;==>_WinAPI_OemToChar
#1204 Rejected New function - WinWaitLoad Assaf
Description

The function name says it all. I have search for this function, while trying to automate some tests on a web site.

This function pauses the execution of script, until the requested window ends to load.

After running this function you can, for example, scan the status bar and search for "Error on page" or "Done" messages.
