Excellent! Was looking at creating something like this too! Still don't know where you find the time to create WinAPIEx.au3 and your custom UDF's. Voted!

I have tested your example script and it works well, but

could you explain the difference with _filewritelog function ? Posted Image

...could you explain the difference with _filewritelog function?

  • The opened log file will be accessed for other applications as read-only.
  • Ability to change the date and time format.
  • Ability to specify your own date and time for the event.
  • Ability to limit the size of a log file.
  • Ability to create multiple log files.
  • Simplicity deleting a log file, erasing its content, etc.
  • You can specify a log header.
  • You can write event ID.

Hi Yashied,

I was just going refactoring our log.udf when I decided I'd do a quick search in the forums to see what the other brain boxes had come up with.

What happens with your UDF if the program falls after the log file has been opened, but before it has been closed? Is it possible that the critical data that needs to be recorded will be lost?

Thanks for sharing,

D

Log is not critical data. But anyway, nothing will happen, the log will contain the last writted entry.
