  • Display system info

    I've been unable to locate this, it seems so simple that I just know I've skipped over it during my search but...

    I want to be able to display some basic system info.

    OS, CPU speed, RAM, Time, Date, etc.

    I understand how to get the values and make them variables
    i.e. System.GetOSName and Registry.GetValue
    It's just displaying them that has me stumped.

    Once I can do this I have bigger plans involving taking that system info along with some user input and mailing it all back to the office using the Blat DLL. But, I will work out each piece of the puzzle one hunk at a time.

    Thanks!

    Here are the ones we support:

    System.GetDate
    System.GetDisplayInfo
    System.GetLANInfo
    System.GetOSName
    System.GetOSVersionInfo
    System.GetTime

    Beyond that you may have to create a custom DLL or Action plugin to get more.

      There are several ways you can display the information.

      Dialog.Message
      Label.SetText
      Input.SetText Paragraph.SetText

      For your use and not for a published project.
      Debug.Print

      You may want to look at storing the information in a table and then you can use a for loop to enumerate the table and display each item. I often do this to test and make sure that I am getting what I need.

      tbvariable = {"item1", "item2", "item3", "item4"}
      for index,value in tbvariable do
      Dialog.Message("title", "This is index"..index.."\r\nWhich has a value of "..value")
      end

      Something to that end anyways.

        Thanks for your help, both.

        The Label.SetText is what I was looking for.

        I am a bit surprised that displaying system info isn't a little more straight forward but hey, as long as you can do it.

        In case anyone else comes looking for the same info, I've attached the basic function in action...
