In the first, and perhaps the last gui before I learn proper syntax I need to create a form that enables users to input (outlook) email address, recipient's name along with a few variables in the body. The rest of the body would be a predetermined message + attachments from set folders (with filenames changing a bit periodically). The output would be a new unsent email. I've found 2 scripts whose combination would resolve the issue. As much as I tried to combine the two, the output would show the qualities of either but not both. I do realize that I'm playing alchemist where an engineer is needed so I'd appreciate any assistance in this .
The two scripts in question are:
Synkfaze's (ideal for my purpose since there will always be two files to be attached in a folder with filenames changing a bit but always retaining core name, and I do *corename* instead of file extension in this case)
Code: Select all
mailItem := ComObj("Outlook.Application").CreateItem(0) ; creates new mail item Loop, path to Excel files\*.xlsx ; or .xls, whichever mailItem.Attachments.Add(A_LoopFileLongPath) ; attaches each file mailItem.GetInspector.Display() ; makes mail item visible
Code: Select all
Gui, Add, Text,, RECIPIENT NAME Gui, Add, Edit, vRecipient Gui, Add, Text,, RECIPIENT EMAIL Gui, Add, Edit, vEmail Gui, Add, Text,, TOPIC Gui, Add, Edit, vTopic Gui, Add, Edit, vMyFile, GUI, Add, Button, ym gBtnBrowse, &Browse Gui, Show Gui, Add, Button, gAddText, Compose Gui, Show, AutoSize Center, Email generator Return AddText: gui, submit Outlook := ComObjActive("Outlook.Application") email := Outlook.Application.CreateItem(0) email.To := Email email.Body := "Dear " Recipient ",`r`nThank you for contacting me.`r`n`Here is the file about " Topic "." email.Subject := Your requested information about " topic email.Attachments.Add(SelectedFile, 1, 1, SelectedFile) email.Display(true) Gui, Destroy Return BtnBrowse: FileSelectFile,SelectedFile If SelectedFile GuiControl,, MyFile, %SelectedFile% return
I have another question: Would it be possible to add attachments between the paragraphs in the body? A paragraph, then an attachment, then another paragraph and attachment. The paragraphs are predetermined.
