Hello asynchronous downloads!

Re: COM Object Reference

COM Object: Msxml2.XMLHTTP, a.k.a. XmlHttpRequest object.
Purpose: Making HTTP requests. Unlike UrlDownloadToFile, it doesn't require managing a temporary file. Unlike WinHttpRequest, it can notify us when the request is complete.
System Requirements: IE7+ and AutoHotkey v1.1.17+ to use onreadystatechange.
Documentation Link: XMLHttpRequest object
Basic Code Example:

Code: Select all

req := ComObjCreate("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
; Open a request with async enabled."GET", "", true)
; Set our callback function (v1.1.17+).
req.onreadystatechange := Func("Ready")
; Send the request.
; If you're going to wait, there's no need for onreadystatechange.
; Setting async=true and waiting like this allows the script to remain
; responsive while the download is taking place, whereas async=false
; will make the script unresponsive.
while req.readyState != 4
    sleep 100

Ready() {
    global req
    if (req.readyState != 4)  ; Not done yet.
    if (req.status == 200 || req.status == 304) ; OK.
        MsgBox % "Latest AutoHotkey version: " req.responseText
        MsgBox 16,, % "Status " req.status
I started looking into this because using WinHttpRequest in synchronous mode causes the script to hang until the request completes, but it turns out you can get around that by opening the request in asynchronous mode and calling WinHttpRequest.WaitForResponse(). The advantages of XMLHTTP are that the API is well known to many web developers, and the events (like onreadystatechange) are compatible with AutoHotkey.

Wouldn't this be better suited to a GitHub repository or something along those lines? Perhaps under the AhkScript group?

COM Object: Publisher.Application
Purpose: Microsoft Publisher is an entry-level desktop publishing application from Microsoft, differing from Microsoft Word in that the emphasis is placed on page layout and design rather than text composition and proofing.
System Requirements: Microsoft Office Publisher
Documentation Link: Object model reference (Publisher 2013 developer reference)
Other Links: Save the active document as .jpg
Basic Code Example: This example will open Publisher, create a new document, draw a curve and a line, add some text, and SaveAs with two different formats (.jpg and .pub).

Code: Select all

; Constants
msoTrue := -1
pbPictureResolutionCommercialPrint_300dpi := 3
pbTextOrientationHorizontal := 1
VT_R4 := 4  ; 32-bit floating-point number

pbApp := ComObjCreate("Publisher.Application")      ; Create a Publisher application object and store a reference to it in the pbApp variable
pbApp.ActiveWindow.Visible := true                  ; Make the window visible

; Application.NewDocument Method (Publisher)
pbDoc := pbApp.NewDocument()                        ; Create a new document and store a reference to the object in the pbDoc variable

; Shapes Methods (Publisher)
pbDoc.Pages(1).Shapes.AddLine(100, 150, 500, 550)   ; Draw a line from the point (100, 150) to point (500, 550)

; Shapes.AddCurve Method (Publisher)
arrPoints := ComObjArray(VT_R4, 4, 2)
arrPoints[0, 0] := 100
arrPoints[0, 1] := 150
arrPoints[1, 0] := 240
arrPoints[1, 1] := 600
arrPoints[2, 0] := 370
arrPoints[2, 1] := 100
arrPoints[3, 0] := 500
arrPoints[3, 1] := 550
pbDoc.Pages(1).Shapes.AddCurve(arrPoints)           ; Draw a curve using the points specified by the array

; Shapes.AddTextbox Method (Publisher)
pbTextbox := pbDoc.Pages(1).Shapes.AddTextbox(pbTextOrientationHorizontal, 40, 60, 520, 65)  ; Create a textbox
; Story.TextRange Property (Publisher)
pbTextRange := pbTextbox.TextFrame.Story.TextRange  ; Store a reference to the range of text inside the textbox
pbTextRange.Text := "AutoHotkey is awesome!"
pbTextRange.Font.Bold := msoTrue
pbTextRange.Font.Size := 40

COM Object: Outlook.Application
Purpose: Create various new items in Outlook
System Requirements: Windows 2000 or higher
Documentation Link: Outlook 2003 Visual Basic Reference
Other Links: CreateItem Method, GetInspector Property, OlItemType constants
Basic Code Example: The entire process of creating a new Outlook item can be executed in a single line using one of the OlItemType constants shown in the below code (and in the above link) with the CreateItem method. This method is valuable if you have problems opening new items using the command line switches.

Code: Select all

olTaskItem   3 

; will create a new mail item

; will create a new note item
And here's a sample ListBox GUI that will allow you to select and create a new instance of any of the applicable Outlook items:

Code: Select all

Gui, Add, Text, xm ym w325 Section, Select the Outlook item you wish to create:
Gui, Add, ListBox, r6 xs wp AltSubmit gItemSelection vitem,  Mail||Appointment|Contact|Task|Journal|Note|Post|Distribution List
