Hi guys, i am having an issue reading a notepadd++ file...
#include <FileConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> Example() Func Example() ; Open the file for reading and store the handle to a variable. Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen("test123.html", $FO_READ) If $hFileOpen = -1 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "An error occurred when reading the file.") Return False EndIf ; Read the contents of the file using the handle returned by FileOpen. Local $sFileRead = FileRead($hFileOpen) ; Close the handle returned by FileOpen. FileClose($hFileOpen) ; Display the contents of the file. MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Contents of the file:" & @CRLF & $sFileRead) EndFunc ;==>Example It does seem that i get an error but why?
i've been playing with this for awhile and have finally gotten where i can read the file i want, but i still can't WRITE the characters i need to write. i can open file "Contoso.vuw" and process to the end of file, displaying both the character position number and associated character, IF i open the file as read only. If i open the file as FileWrite("contoso.vuw", 1) the file runs to the end, but displays nothing. If i open as FileWrite("contoso.vuw", 16) i get a binary representation of all characters. i'm stuck.
i need to replace characters 17, 18 and 19 with whatever the user types in (i can do that part), a 3-character userid. If i can get these three positions done i can do the other positions further down in the file (characters 2247, 2248, and 2249, all represented as "abc").
Can someone point me in the right direction please.
