insist that your app saves file to the same dir

9 posts in this topic

how do i insist that a file is saved to the same dir as the app.exe saving the file every time i save it.

eg.

IniWrite("Config.ini", "section", "key", "bla")
don't always save to the same dir as the app.exe saving it. especially if you have FileOpenDialog in my app and the path of the file is showed in a inputbox. instead
IniWrite("Config.ini", "section", "key", "bla")
saves the config.ini to the same path i have stored in your inputbox. how do i correct this?

Use the @ScripDir macro when specifying the file path

Use the @ScripDir macro when specifying the file path

$file = FileOpen("@ScriptDir & "\Report.txt", 1) 
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf

this script open up a file in root directory i.e.(D:\Report.txt)

it is not opening thie file from script directry i.e(d:temp\Report.txt)

JawwadRauf,

your script won't run at all. Check your quotes (").

And please don't go hitchhiking on somebody else's threads.

Done by doing This

$file = FileOpen(@WorkingDir & '\' & "Report.txt", 1)
    If $file = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
        Exit
    EndIf

And there are 2 things not quite right.

First you are still hitchhiking on someone elses thread (start your own) and second

Your quoted portion is workable but still not quite right. Look in the help file for using quotes

Hint: You have an extra pair that isn't required.
