Copying Links Into A new txt doc

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey forum

Was wondering if something like this was possible or not.

I have a txt doc with words. So far i'm able to read each line of txt and copy them to the clipboard.

I would like to take that copied line and paste it into a new txt doc, but inserted in between a middle of a sentence.

is this possible? If so how/what should i look through to achieve this?

ex:

txt doc has:

red

blue

green

want to create new doc:

my favorite color is (pasted word here). what is yours?

then save as a new document

- repeat the process

something along this example is what i'm trying to achieve.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

A simple approach:

FileClose(FileOpen("c:\txt.doc", 2))            ;creates a new file with an empty content
FileWrite("c:\txt.doc", "my favorite color is "&ClipGet()&". what is yours?")
ShellExecute("c:\txt.doc")

Pay attention when you want to generate new files - you will need a different name with every FileClose(FileOpen statement.

appreicate the response enaiman. I gave it a go and it works.

I just added it to the script that copies the each line & and I see what you mean by needing a different name. Is it possible to have it number the files in incremental order?

I'm thinking I need to do a - For,Next loop, but unsure where/how to incorporate it into the script. Is that the right thinking?

Here's what I have below:

Local Const $File = @ScriptDir & "\test.txt"

Global $Handle = FileOpen($File, 0)
If $Handle = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0x10, 'Error', 'Could not open the file:' & @LF & $File)
    Exit
EndIf

HotkeySet('^{RIGHT}', 'NextLine')
HotkeySet('{ESC}', 'Done')

NextLine()

While 1
    Sleep(0x7FFFFFFF)
WEnd

Func NextLine()
    Local $NextLine = FileReadLine($Handle)
    If @Error Then
        MsgBox(0x40, 'End of File', 'The end of the file has been reached.', 10)
        Done()
    EndIf
    ClipPut($NextLine)
    TrayTip('Copied to Clipboard', $NextLine & @LF & @LF & 'Ctrl+Right: Next line' & @LF & 'Esc: Quit', 5, 1)
    FileClose(FileOpen(@scriptdir & "\destination" & "\test.txt", 1))            ;creates a new file with an empty content
    FileWrite(@scriptdir & "\destination" & "\test.txt", "my favorite color is "&ClipGet()&". what is yours?")
    ShellExecute(@scriptdir & "\destination" & "\test.txt")
EndFunc

Func Done()
    FileClose($Handle)
    Exit
EndFunc

Not difficult to achieve at all - just declare a counter as a global variable and everytime the function is executed, use the counter in the filename and ... increment the counter :)

Like this:

Local Const $File = @ScriptDir & "\test.txt"
Global $FileCounter = 1
Global $Handle = FileOpen($File, 0)
If $Handle = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0x10, 'Error', 'Could not open the file:' & @LF & $File)
    Exit
EndIf

HotkeySet('^{RIGHT}', 'NextLine')
HotkeySet('{ESC}', 'Done')

NextLine()

While 1
    Sleep(0x7FFFFFFF)
WEnd

Func NextLine()
    Local $NextLine = FileReadLine($Handle)
    If @Error Then
        MsgBox(0x40, 'End of File', 'The end of the file has been reached.', 10)
        Done()
    EndIf
    ClipPut($NextLine)
    TrayTip('Copied to Clipboard', $NextLine & @LF & @LF & 'Ctrl+Right: Next line' & @LF & 'Esc: Quit', 5, 1)
    FileClose(FileOpen(@scriptdir & "\destination" & "\test"&$FileCounter&".txt", 1))            ;creates a new file with an empty content
    FileWrite(@scriptdir & "\destination" & "\test"&$FileCounter&".txt", "my favorite color is "&ClipGet()&". what is yours?")
    ShellExecute(@scriptdir & "\destination" & "\test"&$FileCounter&".txt")
    $FileCounter += 1
EndFunc

Func Done()
    FileClose($Handle)
    Exit
EndFunc
