File name from a variable...

Recommended Posts


I am trying to figure out how to read a list from a file name derived from a variable + ".ini" as extension.

GUICtrlSetData($Loc2, IniRead(GUICtrlRead($Loc1) And ".ini", "Region","Region","Null"))
is what i am trying to do.


$Loc1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Continent", 16, 48, 145, 25)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, IniRead("Faction.ini", "Location", "Lands", "null"))
;Lands=North America|South America|Africa|Europe|Asia
$loc1 ".ini"
;Region=States or capitols to conquer

I was using this as a debug label to see what it was spitting out.

GUICtrlSetData($Label2, GUICtrlRead($Loc1) And ".ini")

I did change

...And ".ini") to match setdata($Loc2... each time for process of elimination.

Just trying to read "North America.ini, South America.ini" etc. based on combobox variable $Loc1.

Going this route will allow room for expansion and modifications while keeping the rules the same.
