Hi there,

I recently started using autoit so it is currently a little hard wrapping my brain around it.

But what I need autoit to is to replace or rather change some text in a file.

The situation is that I have a settings file that is structured like this

[Configuration]

Server=127.0.0.1

WebHost=auto

Nickname=Whatever

And I would like to have an application that changes the server setting to another ip without having to edit it in notepad

I found something that has a similar purpose and it is a realmlist changer for world of warcraft.

my problem is that I cant figure out how to change it so it fits my needs.

p.s. Sorry if my English isnt top notch, it is my second language

Here be lyin´ code

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
GUICreate("Realmlist", 400,400,100,100)
$open=FileOpen ( "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\realmlist.wtf", 0 )
$realm = FileReadLine($open,1)
$mylist=GUICtrlCreateList ("", 75,200,250,97)
GUICtrlSetLimit(-1,200) ; to limit horizontal scrolling
GUICtrlSetData(-1,$realm)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("current realms",85,180)
$realms=GUICtrlCreateCombo ("", 10,10,250) ; create first item
$button1 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Set Realm", 30, 90, 130, 20)
$var = IniReadSection("realm.ini", "realms")
If @error Then 
    MsgBox(4096, "", "Error occurred, probably no INI file.")
Else
Select 
Case $var[0][0]=1
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[1][1])
Case $var[0][0]=2 
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[1][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[2][1])
Case $var[0][0]=3 
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[1][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[2][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[3][1])
Case $var[0][0]=4 
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[1][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[2][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[3][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[4][1])
Case $var[0][0]=5 
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[1][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[2][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[3][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[4][1])
GUICtrlSetData($realms,$var[5][1])
Case $var[0][0]>5 
    MsgBox(4096, "", "teveel realms")
EndSelect
EndIf


GUISetState ()
$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $button1
$selected=GUICtrlRead($realms)
$file=FileOpen ( "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\realmlist.wtf", 2 )
FileWrite($file, $selected)
GUICtrlSetData($mylist,"")
GUICtrlSetData($mylist,$selected)   
EndSelect
WEnd
FileClose($open)

But how can I incorporate that into the script I already have?

Just read about Ini Files in the help file then start your code all over. Pay particular attention to the IniReadSection() IniRerad() and IniWrite() functions.
