Passing a constant via ini file

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to pass a constant via an ini file but when it is used in my script it is used at a literal string. How do I evaluate the passed string at a constant to be evaluated at run time?

Test.ini

service=$ConstantVal

Test.AU3

$LZService = IniRead("Test.ini", "Configuration", "service", "")

msgbox (0, "debug", $LZService)

The $LZService shows up as $ConstantVal when displayed in the msgbox. I really want the value of $ConstantVal to be displayed. How do I force the evaluation of the $LZService? I tried eval and that did not work.

Advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rob

RobK,

You need to use Execute: :)

$ConstantVal = 100

$LZService = Execute(IniRead("Test.ini", "Configuration", "service", ""))

msgbox (0, "debug", $LZService)

Although I wonder why you do not save the numeric value in the ini file in the first place. :mellow:

Thanks for your input. I figured it out. I was including the $ as part of my constant in the ini file. If I store the constant name without the $ then use eval it does what I need.
