Dear all,

I am using ansa batch comand to open and load script

Example:
Ansa.exe -i file name -loadscript scriptname

The above comand will open new ansa load file and run script.

My requirement is i already opened ansa. Files should load on that.

Example:
Already openned ansa process id -i file name -loadscript file name.

How to do this?

From which program do you want to call Ansa. Is it batch or something else?

This is called interprocess communication in programming. I am this using program called autoit. I assume one can do the same thing with any other programming language also. I am also very much interested in this topic.

I am doing an inefficient way as of now to achieve this. Sending keypress to ansa window. If ansa window is active and someone is typing in keyboard, all the pressed keys are appeared in search function and filter. So to open a ansa file, one can type
Code:
File : Open recent: C:\Ansa\ansa_file.ansa
After that you can you need to call the script again like this.
Code:
User: Load_script(script path)
So any program which send keypress to other process will work for this. I am using AutoIt. As I said earlier, it is an inefficient process. Limitation is when the program is sending keypress, if the user press the keyboard by mistake this won't work.

Efficient way it use other proved methods like

Pipes
Memory mapped files
RPC(remote procedure call) I prefer this. I need to learn how to do that with python. There is a separate library called xmlrpc for this. With this we can make ansa to work like server waiting for command from other process. Also need to learn multiprocessing in python for this. You can go through other methods in python docs https://docs.python.org/3/library/ipc.html

If possible share your code in git.

Thanks

Hi Viswa,


How did you manage to launch Ansa?

I tried using the Popen function in Python, but I get a fatal error and the window closes.
I tried Popen('location/ansa64.bat').


Could you please help?
