Make GUI for batch/cmd file.
Posted 04 January 2005 - 06:16 PM
Something like Visual Studio or Visual Basic is way too complicated... I just want a program that will let the user interact with the cmd-file in a nice GUI-way.
Thanks in advance!

You can also comiple the .CMDs to an EXE - or use CMDOW to hide it completely.
Or you can replace CMD scripts with something graphical - like WIHU/WPI/XPlode/etc.

However, I don't need a CMD replacement, nor do I want to compile my batchfiles. I just want a little tool (which I call from my cmd-file) that is able to receive input from the user and shows it on the screen / push it in a enviromentle variable. Or display a message.

WIHU is easy to use, and is a great piece of software. It also makes a great program to include as an autorun on your CD. Which means its a great software selection program as well as an unattended tool.
If this type of feature isn't what you want, please explain better. I think many of us are confused about what you actually want.

If youre talking just any batch file in general, I guess another question would be, does it have to be a "GUI" interface? You can easily make menus with batch files that would allow the user to launch any other batch files you want... that would probably be the easiest solution to what youre looking for if you dont want to stray too far off of batch files...
and holy cow! im over 400 posts! woot!

VBscript is perfectly suited for this. If you want to proceed on that, or want code snippets, please tell what purpose its for and I could whip one up.

The Wizard's Apprentice
the exe file is only 70 Kb
Though it is aimed as a GUI overlay for batch install routines, it has enough options available to be used as a GUI to ANY batch file.
See here the example I made:

(However I do want to learn VBscript, to see what I can achieve with that!)
