7 posts in this topic

Hi there! Fairly new to the whole Autoit scene so go easy on me!

I have a need to open a specific file, its the win.ini file.

But also I need to be able to amend the last line in the ini file, is this possible?

Do you know the content of this last line or it's never the same thing ?

Here's an example

;This segment reads your Win.ini file
$Before = FileRead(@WindowsDir & '\win.ini')
If @error = 1 Then Exit MsgBox(0, 'ERROR', 'Cannot Read ' & @WindowsDir & '\win.ini')
MsgBox(0, 'Win.ini Contents Before Append', $Before)

;This segment writes an additional line to your Win.ini file
$Write = FileWrite(@WindowsDir & '\win.ini', 'Your New Line of Text' & @CRLF)
If $Write = 0 Then Exit MsgBox(0, 'ERROR', 'Cannot Write To ' & @WindowsDir & '\win.ini')
$After = FileRead(@WindowsDir & '\win.ini')
MsgBox(0, 'Win.ini Contents After Append', $After)

;This segment reverts the changes that were made...delete/comment these lines when you are ready
$File = FileOpen(@WindowsDir & '\win.ini', 2)
If @error = -1 Then Exit MsgBox(0, 'ERROR', 'Cannot open ' & @WindowsDir & '\win.ini')
FileWrite($File, $Before)
FileClose($File)

In addition to what Varian said, you should read the help file about each function used in Examples.

Because you are new to AutoIt, i strongly recommend read it.

You can access it by pressing F1 in SciTE Editor.
