Iniread wildcard?

4 posts in this topic

Im looking for a way to use the iniread to find a group of sections maybe with a wildcard, but have no idea if it can even be done.

If the ini looked like this:

[1|2|3|4|5]

test=a|b|c|d

[1|3|3|4|5]

test1=a|b|c|d

[1|3|3|4|5]

test2=a|b|c|d

[1|4|3|4|5]

test3=a|b|c|d

I would want to be able to pull all data "[1|2" and get test=a|b|c|d or "[1|3" test1=a|b|c|d and test2=a|b|c|d

I have writen a long process that can do this that write a temp ini but was hoping for ideas or a trick to make it simple.

Switch StringRight($section, 1)
        Case "|"
            $doi = IniReadSectionNames("data\stock.ini")
            For $x = 1 To $doi[0]
                $doi2 = StringInStr($doi[$x], $section, 1)
                If $doi2 > 0 Then
                    $found1 = IniReadSection("data\stock.ini", $doi[$x])
                    If @error <> 1 Then
                        For $i = 1 To $found1[0][0]
                            IniWrite("data\Work.ini", "Found", $found1[$i][0], $found1[$i][1])
                        Next
                    EndIf
                EndIf
            Next
            $found = IniReadSection("data\Work.ini", "Found")
            For $x = 1 To $found[0][0]
                IniDelete("data\Work.ini", "Found", $found[$x][0])
            Next
        Case Else
            $found = IniReadSection("data\stock.ini", $section)
    EndSwitch

Hope that is enough code to get the point across.

Thanks for any help.

Blaq,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Here is my take on how you might do it: ;)

$sFile = "stock.ini"

$sSearch = "1|3"  ; Or "1|2" if you wish

; Get section names
$aSections = IniReadSectionNames($sFile)

; Clear the result variable
$sResult = ""

; Loop through the sections
For $i = 1 To $aSections[0]
    ; if we find the search variable in the section name
    If StringInStr($aSections[$i], $sSearch) Then
        ; We get the key/value pairing
        $aKey = IniReadSection($sFile, $aSections[$i])
        ; And add them to the result
        $sResult &= $aKey[1][0] & "=" & $aKey[1][1] & @CRLF
    EndIf
Next

; And here we see what we got!
MsgBox(0, "Result for " & $sSearch, $sResult)

Any questions? ;)

I tried something like that but didnt get it to work because the sections are really words not numbers and it has Organic and Inorganic and as you can see "inORGANIC" some words are in the others but it just hit me to turn on casesense. Now it is working great.

Thanks for the help!!

Blaq,

My pleasure. :)

Top Tip: Give as much info as you can in the initial post (especially details like that!) and you will get replies that better fit your requirements - perhaps fortunately, we cannot read your mind. ;)
