Another recursive FileList function

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I know there's already several of these types of functions around the forum but there were some things I wanted to do different, so I wrote my own.

In the tests I've done this appears to be working fine, but I'd appreciate a second look.

The error returns and the first three parameters are the same as the vanilla _FileListToArray, but there are a couple new flags, and two new parameters.

The new flags include:

- enabling recursion (4)

- disabling file count in element [0] (8)

- enabling full path returns (16).

The new parameters are:

- $sCallback - this is the name of a function you want to run on each loop, it is passed an array with data relating to the current file search in the loop. If the callback function returns 0 then the item is processed normally. If it returns 1 the item is skipped (this can be used to skip entire folders being processed). If it returns -1 the entire function errors out with -1 and @extended is set to the callback function's @extended value.

- $sCallbackUserParam - just an extra parameter that can be passed through to the callback function.

Example with callback:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <_FileListToArrayRecursive.au3>

Global $sWFile
_FileListToArrayRecursive(@DesktopDir, '*', 4, '_Callback', 'Wfile')
If @error = -1 And @extended = 42 Then
    MsgBox(0, '', 'You have a W file:' & @LF & $sWFile)
    MsgBox(0, '', 'No files/folders that start with W exist.')

Global $aReadOnly = _FileListToArrayRecursive(@DesktopDir, '*', 1+4, '_Callback', 'readonly')
Global $aEmpty = _FileListToArrayRecursive(@DesktopDir, '*', 1+4, '_Callback', 'empty')


Func _Callback($aParams)
    Switch $aParams[5]
        Case 'Wfile'
            If StringLeft($aParams[2], 1) == 'W' Then
                $sWFile = $aParams[1] & $aParams[2]
                Return SetExtended(42, -1)
        Case 'empty'
            If Not $aParams[3] Then
                If FileGetSize($aParams[0] & $aParams[1] & $aParams[2]) Then Return 1
        Case 'readonly'
            If Not $aParams[3] Then
                If Not StringInStr(FileGetAttrib($aParams[0] & $aParams[1] & $aParams[2]), 'R') Then Return 1

; Name...........: _FileListToArrayRecursive
; Description ...: Lists files and/or folders in a specified path recursively
; Syntax.........: _FileListToArrayRecursive($sPath[, $sFilter = '*'[, $iFlag = 0[, $sCallback = ''[, $sCallbackUserParam = '' ] ] ] ] )
; Parameters ....: $sPath             - Path to search
;                 $sFilter          - Optional: the filter to use, default is *
;                 $iFlag              - Optional: specifies options about return, add flags together
;                 |$iFlag =  0 (Default) Return both files and folders
;                 |$iFlag =  1 Return files only
;                 |$iFlag =  2 Return folders only
;                 |$iFlag =  4 Search subfolders (Enable recursion)
;                 |$iFlag =  8 Make array 0-based (Disable return count in first element)
;                 |$iFlag = 16 Return full paths (default only returns from the search folder down)
;                 $sCallback          - Optional: function to call on each loop. See remarks for details (default: none)
;                 $sCallbackUserParam - Optional: a parameter to pass to the Callback function (default: none)
; Return values .: @Error - 1 = Path not found or invalid
;                 |2 = Invalid $sFilter
;                 |3 = Invalid $iFilter
;                 |4 = No files found or folder inaccessible
;                 |5 = No files found or folder inaccessible
;                 |-1 = Callback function returned -1
; Author ........: Rob Saunders (therks at therks dot com)
; Modified.......:
; Remarks .......: If $sCallback is defined the function will be called on each loop and it can alter what files are recorded
;                 in the return array. The Callback function runs on every file result because it is called *before* the flag
;                 filter for files/folders ($iFlag 1 or 2).
;                   Return  0 = Item is added (depending on $iFlag 1 or 2)
;                   Return  1 = Item is skipped (note: if you skip a folder it will not be searched either)
;                   Return -1 = Stop searching. Main func returns false, @error = -1, @extended = Callback's @extended value
;                 The function is passed one parameter, a 6 item array with values as follows:
;                   [0] root search folder
;                   [1] current sub folder
;                   [2] current filename match
;                   [3] 1 if file is a folder; 0 if not
;                   [4] current file count
;                   [5] $sCallbackUserParam

      I write this script to compare to array, well Do you have a better way to do it?
      #include <Constants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> $a = FileSelectFolder("seleziona cartella A",@ScriptDir) $fold_A = _FileListToArrayRec($a,"*",2,1,0,1) $b = FileSelectFolder("seleziona cartella B",@ScriptDir) $fold_B = _FileListToArrayRec($b,"*",2,1,0,1) $tota = UBound($fold_A)-1 $totb = UBound($fold_B)-1 If $tota > $totb Then findx($fold_A,$fold_B) Else findx($fold_B,$fold_A) EndIf Func findx($min,$max) For $i = 0 To UBound($min)-1 $found = _ArraySearch($max, $min[$i]) If $found = -1 Then ConsoleWrite($min[$i]&@CRLF) EndIf Next EndFunc

      Hi all, 

      First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

      I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

      The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

      So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

      Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.

      Hey Everybody,
      as you know im on a very low autoit-level.
      My question is: How can i read all PDFs from a Folder wich is open and copy them to a Folder on a Desktop.
      The Folder wich contains the PDFs is variable Z:\Projektls\"*"*"*EVERYTIME ANOTHER ENDING"*"*"*"*"
      There can be 1 PDF or even 15 PDFs.
      i tried it with _FileListToArray and _FileCopy but i Need some help to understand this language

      Cleaning up some old folders and found this little snippit. Think I was using this back when I was trying to create 2d maps for a game I was making in GDI+ (that never got finished). Pretty straight forward, searches an array for an array.
