Reading Text Files and using data from them

Recommended Posts

omiden

I'm trying to get 2 values from a text file and then use that data in the txt files for the program.

Heres a example.

The text file will hold the users requested resolution he wants to use, so two lines height & width.

I want to take that data and implement it into my program where it holds the height & width, can anyone tell me where at in the help file I can read up on how to do this? Or if you have the code already share it?

An .INI file or, if you have a simple text file, StringRegexp can probably do it, but you need to determine how to recognize your actual data. Which format does that use?

Well any of those would work a .ini, format could be anyway like I think theres a readline1 readline2 thing.

Or I could just put it all in one line and use "," "|" as a filesplit.

EXAMPLE : 1920,1200

But do you know how i would do the .ini file?

I don't know, that's your choice: any text editor, a single FileWriteLine, whatever. I've no idea where this couple of values are going to come from.

If you don't have more "complex" requirement, make it a one line file and StringSplit that line.

I can't really get it working, im just doing a simple txt file made a filesplit.

I just need one variable to be the width and another to be the height.
