invalid file handle error!

Recommended Posts

t0ddie

line 0(my dir/my prog.exe)

$file = fileopen.. yadda yadda yadda

error: invalid file handle

IM SICK OF TYPING THE DAMN ERROR.. this is not exact.

heres the deal/

the damn script worked fine.

i added another part that would print a variable into a text file.

i changed the name of the variables and everything.. that didnt help.

\

also the error says line 0 but its in the middle of the script.. and everything runs fine till that line is called. i know where it is in the script... but still.. line 0 is not where it is.

why the hell do you get errors like this.. how do you fix them.

everything looks fine to me, and the script ran fine until i added some other stuff but that should not effect it.

the $file variable i have named to other things.. tried a bunch of stuff. just to make sure it wasnt conflicting with another variable with the same name.

i dont know what the deal is.. and im quite agitated.

so.. what do i do now....?

actually, the script is quite large,

and i just asked why i would get a file handle error.. is that something wrong with the name?

i want to learn why i got this error, or why one might occur.

the command seems fine, i pasted it out of the help file.

i can clip part of the code and put it in here... but i dont see what good it will do.

its perfectly written

$fileparse = FileOpen(@DesktopDir & "/steal/config/parse.txt", 0)



If $fileparse = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf


while 1
    $lineparse = FileReadLine($fileparse)

the command its getting stuck on is.. you guessed it.

$lineparse = FileReadLine($fileparse)

i need to calm down, but i just want to know what exactly a file handle error IS!

then i can maybe do this myself....

file handle.. i figured was the files name. but that seems fine...

directory is fine.

so what gives?

Filehandle is a number which represents the "Handle to the file" returned by the FileOpen command and used by FileRead(), FileReadLine() and FileClose() commands.

thanks jdeb. now....

i swear to god.. i checked more than 3 times

im opening the file in read mode instead of write mode.

i wish the error (all errors really) could be more specific.

Nah, would make the autoit3 program much to big if you have to test for all possible scripter errors and put in longer error messages like:

"No stupid, you opened the file in read-only mode in stead of write at line 123 and are trying to write to it in line 234."

:(
