Can GUICtrlCreateEdit make autoit do same work each line?

Recommended Posts

I want to use GUICtrlCreateEdit to input some text like:




Then I want autoit do same work per line. For example: Coppy all line to an .txt file, then rename that file to "Line text.txt"

So autoit will coppy "Text1" to an *.txt save as name "Text1.txt" then do the same thing with "Text2", "Text3".... ultil the end row?

Help me please!

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

What you want to do is very simple:

- Create a GUI with an edit control (the first example for GUICtrlCreateEdit in the Help file shows you how)

- Once you have entered the text you wish, use GUICtrlRead to get it into a string.

- Split the string into the separate lines using StringSplit

- Loop through the resulting array and use FileWrite to write each line to a file.

Give it a go and see how you get on - you know where we are if you run into difficulties. ;)

Good Luck! ;)
