Notepad file opening problem...

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I have been trying to make a script which requests some information and writes it to a notepad file after the information is entered... The whole script runs smoothly (variables, etc) except for the opening of the file/writing to the file..

I have tried Run and FileWriteLine, both with the same results... Was hoping that you could help me on this one

(I need this done soon... its a bit important, thanks)

Thanks for any feedback and help :D

I have put the script below

; Project: input hours
;means - notepad tracker?
If 2 = MsgBox (1,"TimeTracker","Welcome, would you like to begin?") then Exit
;vars
$date = InputBox ("TimeTracker","Input date and day"&@CRLF&"format [DAY] - [DATE]")
$phys = InputBox ("TimeTracker","Input hours done of Physics")
$chem = InputBox ("TimeTracker","Input hours done of Chemistry")
$math = InputBox ("TimeTracker","Input hours done of Math")
$file = FileOpen ("G:\StudyHours.txt",1)
if $file = 1 Then
FileWriteLine ("G:\StudyHours.txt",@CRLF&@CRLF&$date&@CRLF&$phys&@CRLF&$chem&@CRLF&$math)
MsgBox (0,"TimeTracker","Done! :D")
ElseIf $file = 0 Then
MsgBox (0,"TimeTracker","Sorry, file not found @_@")
EndIf
Exit

(The error in this case occurred at the file open, it said that it could not either open the file, or find it...)

      Hi Guys,
      When I used to scratch the surface with Delphi5, I could only create a simple Notepad program.
      Now that I'm into AutoIt, I've created just a bare bone Notepad.
      Can be improved, but maybe this will be useful for those, like me, starting out with programming.
      I know there are way better notepads out there like Aupad, but,
      #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <APIDlgConstants.au3> #include <Memory.au3> #include <WinAPIDlg.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 3) #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= $Form1 = GUICreate("Notepad", 620, 440, 192, 124) $MenuItem1 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("File") $MenuItem4 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("New" & @TAB & "Ctrl+N", $MenuItem1) $MenuItem5 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Open" & @TAB & "Ctrl+O", $MenuItem1) $MenuItem6 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Save" & @TAB & "Ctrl+S", $MenuItem1) $MenuItem17 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Print" & @TAB & "Ctrl+P", $MenuItem1) $MenuItem7 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit" & @TAB & "Ctrl+W", $MenuItem1) $MenuItem2 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Edit") $MenuItem8 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Undo" & @TAB & "Ctrl+Z", $MenuItem2) $MenuItem9 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Cut" & @TAB & "Ctrl+X", $MenuItem2) $MenuItem10 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Copy" & @TAB & "Ctrl+C", $MenuItem2) $MenuItem11 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Paste" & @TAB & "Ctrl+V", $MenuItem2) $MenuItem12 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Delete" & @TAB & "Del", $MenuItem2) $MenuItem16 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Format") $MenuItem19 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Word Wrap", $MenuItem16) $MenuItem18 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Font", $MenuItem16) $MenuItem15 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("View") $MenuItem20 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Status Bar", $MenuItem15) $MenuItem3 = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Help") $MenuItem13 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("View Help", $MenuItem3) $MenuItem14 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("About Notepad" & @TAB & "F1", $MenuItem3) $Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 0, 620, 420, $ES_WANTRETURN) GUICtrlSetFont($Edit1, 10, 400, -1, "Lucida Console") GUICtrlSetData(-1, "") Dim $Form1_AccelTable[11][2] = [["^n", $MenuItem4], ["^o", $MenuItem5], ["^s", $MenuItem6], ["^p", $MenuItem17], ["^w", $MenuItem7], ["^z", $MenuItem8], ["^x", $MenuItem9], ["^c", $MenuItem10], ["^v", $MenuItem11], ["{DEL}", $MenuItem12], ["{F1}", $MenuItem14]] GUISetAccelerators($Form1_AccelTable) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE #Region --- CodeWizard generated code Start --- ;MsgBox features: Title=Yes, Text=Yes, Buttons=Yes and No, Icon=Warning If Not IsDeclared("iMsgBoxAnswer") Then Local $iMsgBoxAnswer $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(52, "Notepad Closing", "Are you sure you want to exit?") Select Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 ;Yes Exit Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 7 ;No EndSelect #EndRegion --- CodeWizard generated code Start --- Case $MenuItem4 GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "") Case $MenuItem5 FileOpenDialog("Open Text File", @DesktopDir, "Text File (*.txt)") Case $MenuItem6 $filesave = FileSaveDialog("Save Text File", @DesktopDir, "Text File (*.txt)") $Edit1_Read = GUICtrlRead($Edit1) FileWrite($filesave, $Edit1_Read) Case $MenuItem7 #Region --- CodeWizard generated code Start --- ;MsgBox features: Title=Yes, Text=Yes, Buttons=Yes and No, Icon=Warning If Not IsDeclared("iMsgBoxAnswer") Then Local $iMsgBoxAnswer $iMsgBoxAnswer = MsgBox(52, "Notepad Closing", "Are you sure you want to exit?") Select Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 6 ;Yes Exit Case $iMsgBoxAnswer = 7 ;No EndSelect #EndRegion --- CodeWizard generated code Start --- EndSwitch WEnd If you don't attempt something, you never know you can actually achieve that goal.

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on this little project for a week, and, what I'm trying to do could be useful for many users as well...
      I'm trying to do a "Report Generator", which reads the data that have to report from a text file (.txt) formatted with this pattern;
      Data1;Data2;Data3;Data4;Data5;;

      YES, there are 2 semi-colon at the end of the line.

      In detail, Data1 is a date/time stamp with this format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS ;

      When the script starts, the user is prompted to choose 2 dates which I'll call as:
      Report_Date_Start; Report_Date_Start. So, the report, should cover all dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End.

      And, already at this point, I don't know how to do the query... How can I say to the script:
      SELECT * FROM (.txt) WHERE Data1 BETWEEN Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End; ?

      I thought that I could do a _DateDiff, but if the difference between the two dates is months and not days, how can I do the trick?
      Should I make a Switch...Case with the _DateDiff() and see then calculate all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End... But then, how can I compare the dates in the file with all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End? I'm going crazy, I know...

      I've already made a "Export Tool", which exports the content of the .txt file in a .db, managed with SQLite... I mean, there I could easily do a query like I did above the thread, but, this "export", for 1080 rows, takes 28 seconds to be done. And, 1080 rows are daily rows that are added every day in the .txt file, so, in a week, the file could be easily 7000+ rows, which means that the "export" would take 3 minutes to be done... And we can go over and over...
      I'll post just for be "complete" what I've done about the export, so, maybe, someone could say how to improve it in terms of efficency...
       
      Local $aContenutoFileAuditReport = "" _FileReadToArray($sFileAudit_Report, $aContenutoFileAuditReport) If(IsArray($aContenutoFileAuditReport) And Not @error) Then Local $aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted = "" Local $sQuery = "" Local $hInizioConteggio = TimerInit() For $i = 1 To UBound($aContenutoFileAuditReport) - 1 $aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted = StringSplit($aContenutoFileAuditReport[$i], ";") $sQuery = "INSERT INTO FileDB_Report(DATESTAMP, TIMESTAMP, USER_ID, OBJECT_ID, DESCRIPTION, COMMENT) " & _ "VALUES(" & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[0]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[1]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[3]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[4]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[5]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[6]) & ");" If(_SQLite_Exec($hFileDB_Report, $sQuery) <> $SQLITE_OK) Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante l'esecuzione della query #" & $i & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("Query eseguita correttamente #" & $i & @CRLF) EndIf Next ConsoleWrite("Esportazione completata in: " & Round(TimerDiff($hInizioConteggio)/1000, 0) & " secondi") Else MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la lettura del file nell'array." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) EndIf I know that I can't do queries from a .txt file...
      [19:18] 
      I've been writing this post from 18:40 maybe...
      By the way, if @jchd or someone else could tell me if I can import a formatted .txt file in SQLite and then, do queries on the DB, I'd be very happy for that...
      About the report in PDF, I'm talking with @taietel in order to know how to create a PDF.
      I hope someone will help me
      Sorry for the "long" list of questions...
      Thank you for everything you've done for me
      I have to say that this is the community of programming language that I've loved most!
      By the way, I'll be back tomorrow in the morning ( ~ 9:15 a.m. Italian time ), so, excuse me if I can't answer before that time.
      Hope you guys have a wonderful day/night.

      Thanks again

      Hi all.
       
      Because of me wondering if I could access the key/value pair arrays with the numbers as indexes, I have found out that the zeroth element for some reason doesn't return anything.
      Here's the example:
       
      local $r[2] $r["test1"]="hello" $r["test2"]="how are you" msgbox(64, $r[0], $r[1]) ; prints the ["test2"] but not ["test1"]. Is this even supposed to be a thing?  
       
      BTW, I haven't seen Autoit get updated since 2015; is it abandened or something?
      Any help/clarification appreciated.

      I have a Dutch version of Windows 10.
      The Dutch word for "File" = "Bestand" and for "Page Setup" = "Pagina-instelling".
      WinMenuSelectItem doesn't select this items.  What can be the reason?
       
      Run("notepad.exe") WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]") WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Bestand", "Pagina-instelling...") Sleep(4000) WinClose("[CLASS:Notepad]")
