AutoHotKey script for automating batch conversions in Dolphin EasyConverter 5
Attached is an AutoHotKey script file, that when Dolphin EasyConverter 5 is running and idle at its main screen, if you have the attached script file running and you press WINDOWS KEY+SPACEBAR it will then start an auto-batch quick conversion of a whole bunch of input files (defined in the file JOBS.INI on your Windows desktop) into your specified output formats (also defined in the file JOBS.INI on your Windows desktop).
It does this by sending keypresses to the main EasyConverter 5 window in order to simulate a user actually sitting in front of their computer and clicking on the individual dialog boxes in EasyConverter’s “Quick Conversion” wizard.
The contents of a typical JOBS.INI file (on your Windows desktop) would look something like this:
The script simply takes the first entry in the JOBS.INI file and simulates pressing the hot keys and filling out the filename edit area and select the “type” list box in EasyConverter 5’s “Quick Conversion” wizard. The script then monitors for the appearance of the Microsoft Word intermediate window (if it’s automatically set to pop up that is) and automatically closes it if it does appear. The script then waits until the words “Conversion completed” appear in the conversion window and when it has it moves to the second entry in the JOBS.INI file and does exactly the same thing again. The script repeats this process over and over again until there are no more input files left to process in the JOBS.INI file.
A very simplistic approach I know, but it works.
I’m sure that it could be refined and improved over time.
AutoHotKey even allows you to turn the attached script file into
a standalone EXE program file as well.
Anyway, the source code for the script is attached (rename its file extension from .txt to .ahk).
