Uvek se pitam, zasto ne citate Help-ove, zasto ne konsultujete Internet, zasto ne procitate neku knjigu o programskom jeziku koji koristitte? Ne mogu da verujem da pokusavas da programiras u VB a da nemas ni knjigu, a tamo sigurno to pise, samo je treba prelistati....

Introduction

It is often the case that a program already exists to do some job so rather than rewrite the program in Visual Basic it is more efficient to run the existing program from Visual Basic. This can work very well for command line programs or scripts written in any language.

The general scheme is to create a string containing the command line, call a function to run it and then wait for the command to complete. There are many refinements that can be made including all sorts of ways of sending data to the new process, reading results from it, pausing it, setting its priority and so on.

The Shell Function

The simplest way of running an external program is to do something like this:

Shell "cmd /c dir %temp%"

Shell is a built in Visual Basic function that executes a command line and returns a handle to that process. Shell takes an optional argument that controls the window style of the new process (maximized, normal, hidden, etc.).

Unfortunately running another program like this doesn't give you much control over what is happening. In particular, there is no obvious way to find out if the program has completed its work.

Luckily Shell actually does slightly more than launch the program it also returns the process id. This is the number displayed by Task Managers and can be used to check the status of the process. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with Visual Basic and Windows there is no built in function nor even a single API function that can use it directly so we must write a little more code. First we must declare some API functions and some constants:

Option Explicit

Const SYNCHRONIZE = &H100000
Const INFINITE = &HFFFF 'Wait forever
Const WAIT_OBJECT_0 = 0 'The state of the specified object is signaled.
Const WAIT_TIMEOUT = &H102 'The time-out interval elapsed, and the object’s state is nonsignaled.

Private Declare Function OpenProcess Lib "kernel32" _
(ByVal dwDesiredAccess As Long, _
ByVal bInheritHandle As Long, _
ByVal dwProcessId As Long) _
As Long
Private Declare Function WaitForSingleObject Lib "kernel32" _
(ByVal hHandle As Long, _
ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long) _
As Long
Private Declare Function CloseHandle Lib "kernel32" _
(ByVal hObject As Long) _
As Long

Dim ProcessID As Long
Dim hProcess As Long


Here is an example of a function that executes a command and waits for it to complete:

Function ShellWait(CommandLine As String, _
TimeOut As Long, _
WindowState As VbAppWinStyle) As Boolean

Dim ProcessID As Long
Dim hProcess As Long

ProcessID = Shell(CommandLine)
If ProcessID Then
'non-zero (True) so Shell worked
' Get a process handle for the PID (Wait takes a handle)
hProcess = OpenProcess(SYNCHRONIZE, False, ProcessID)
If hProcess Then
' Got process handle
' Wait until process finishes before going on
If WaitForSingleObject(hProcess, TimeOut) = WAIT_OBJECT_0 Then
ShellWait = True
Else
ShellWait = False
End If
Else
'Failed to get process handle.
'Perhaps the process terminated very quickly
'or it might not really have executed at all even though Windows
' started a process.
ShellWait = False
End If
Else
' PID zero (False) so Shell failed
ShellWait = False
End If
End Function


Call it like this:

If ShellWait("calc.exe") then
MsgBox "Success :-)"
Else
msgBox "Failure :-("
End If
