( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have spent the better part of a day reading all of the documentation I can find on manipulating the MS Agent with perl. (A special thanks to Jouke and his Win32::MSAgent module which I was able to use to answer a lot of other questions.) My problem is this... I can add a user defined menu option to the agent, but I cannot figure out how to attach a perl sub to the agent's Command event. Any suggestions?

Here is a some code which will activate the "Merlin" agent, add an exit menu option, and then wait. Getting the program to terminate when the exit menu option is selected is my goal.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Variant; Win32::OLE->Initialize(Win32::OLE::COINIT_MULTITHREADED); my $Agent = Win32::OLE->new('Agent.Control.2'); $Agent->{Connected} = Variant(VT_BOOL, 1); $Agent->Characters->Load('Merlin','Merlin.acs'); my $Char = $Agent->Characters('Merlin'); $Char->Commands->Add('Exit','E&xit'); $Char->Show; while(1) { $Char->Speak('Sleeping...'); sleep(60); }

  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
