Read/write/save data from .ini?

7 posts in this topic

How can I read, write, and save data from an .ini? I have a program that requires you to enter some data, but it would be a pain in the ass to enter all that data everytime you open it open. So is there anyway I can make it save that data when opened up?

MirnesC2,

Autoit has a very comprehensive set of .ini file functions. Look in the Help file under Ini. :D

Have you looked in the help for IniRead and IniWrite?

If you're using Scite, once you have a file saved as a .au3 file, if you hit "F1", help will open to the page about the command currently under the cursor.

Heh, this whole time I have been coming here and using the "preview post" while my code was in autoit tags to do that, lol. Thanks
