Change File Name

5 posts in this topic

Hey all :mellow:

So I was trying to change a file name using FileMove, but it didn't work for me.

(Maybe I just didn't use it in the right way?)

Is there another way to change a file name?

Thank you! :)

How do you call FileMove and what is the return value?

I've simply copied the line from the help file:

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/FileMove.htm

FileMove("C:\foo.au3", "D:\mydir\bak.au3")

and all I did was just change the destination.

Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't.. Weird.

EDIT: It does work right now. Even weirder :mellow:

However now I have another problem.

How do I use a variable in this code?

I need to change the files names and add a number to the beginning.

e.g:

a.txt --> 3a.txt

b.txt --> 3b.txt

I've tried something like this:

$num = 11
FileMove("C:\text.txt", "c:\" & $num & "text.txt")

But it didn't work of course..

Change your code to do some error checking

$num = 11
$iResult = FileMove("C:\text.txt", "c:\" & $num & "text.txt")
MsgBox(0,"", "Result: " & $iResult)

      Hi dear
      I want create retractable bar using autoit
      I tried creating slider, but there's a problem with screen reader for the blind, so is there another retractable tape?
      It is advisable to not accept dragging with the keybord only with  mouse
      note:
      This bar is needed in the process of raising and lowering the volume
      I hope that there is a solution to do that
      i waiting your responses.
      Thanks in advance to all members and administrators
