[Solved]Problems writing text to a file

Recommended Posts

Akarillon

This line was originally used instead of the FileOpen and FileWrite commands

_WinAPI_WriteFile($hFile, DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer), StringLen($sText), $nBytes)

But WinAPI would only erase my prev text.

But FileOpen and FileWrite doesn't work.

The file is generated, but no text is inserted.

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
DirCreate("C:\Inventory\Log")
Global $sFile, $hFile, $sText, $nBytes, $tBuffer
$aDato = _Date_Time_GetSystemTime()
$Dato = _Date_Time_SystemTimeToArray($aDato)
_WriteToLog("Topic", "text")
_WriteToLog("Topic2", "text2")

Func _WriteToLog($labelname, $Recv)
$sFile = 'C:\Inventory\Log\' & $dato[2] & $dato[0] & $dato[1] & '.log'
$sText = '' & $labelname & ' | ' & $Recv & ' ' & @CRLF & ''
$tBuffer = DllStructCreate("byte[" & StringLen($sText) & "]")
DllStructSetData($tBuffer, 1, $sText)
$hFile = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFile, 1)
FileOpen($sFile, 1)
FileWrite($sFile, $sText)
_WinAPI_CloseHandle($hFile)
ConsoleWrite('1) ' & FileRead($sFile) & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>_WriteToLog

Thanks for all help =)

You don't need any of the _WinAPI items inside the function to write to the file, it's possible that because you opened it twice, the second one failed and the file is locked for writing. Try this:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
DirCreate("C:InventoryLog")
Global $sFile, $hFile, $sText, $nBytes, $tBuffer
$aDato = _Date_Time_GetSystemTime()
$Dato = _Date_Time_SystemTimeToArray($aDato)
_WriteToLog("Topic", "text")
_WriteToLog("Topic2", "text2")

Func _WriteToLog($labelname, $Recv)
    $sFile = 'C:InventoryLog' & $Dato[2] & $Dato[0] & $Dato[1] & '.log'
    $sText = '' & $labelname & ' | ' & $Recv & ' ' & @CRLF & ''
    $somevariable = FileOpen($sFile, 1)
    FileWrite($somevariable, $sText)
    FileClose($somevariable)
    ConsoleWrite('1) ' & FileRead($sFile) & @CRLF)
EndFunc

Why would you use the _WinAPI_* functions? For performance reasons?

@BrewManNH

Thanks for the solution :D

@Water

I just didn't know that FileOpen created a file if it was not there.

Was looking desperately for a FileCreate and only one I found was _WinAPI_CreateFile

It's in the help file, section "Remarks": Opening a file in write mode creates the file if it does not exist.

Depending on the number of records you want to write to the log I would suggest to open the log at the beginning of the script and close it before you exit. This will improve performance because opening/closing a file is quite expensive.

I am adding from 20-3000 entries, so performance would be nice :oops:

      Currently, I'm working on a program that will display Dialog boxes with either Yes or No.
      For each dialog, I reward the user with X amount of Credits.
      I'm hoping to output the amount of credits to a cell in a column (there will be 20 different columns).
      It will only post to a row that is equal to today's date (first column). If no row exists yet with the current date, it will start a new row.
      Any suggestions?
      Thank you

      I'm trying to create a simple clock widget that automatically scales the text to the size of the window. I came up with the following method, but it doesn't work as well as I'd like. It especially has trouble scaling to the width of the window for some reason (in the example, try resizing the window to be narrow and tall).
      Does anyone have a better method?
      #include <Misc.au3> #include <WinAPIConv.au3> #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Global $_FONT_FAMILY = 'Arial', $_LB_TEXT Main() Func Main() _GDIPlus_Startup() Local $hGUI GUIRegisterMsg($WM_SIZE, WM_SIZE) $hGUI = GUICreate('', 300, 100, Default, Default, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) $_LB_TEXT = GUICtrlCreateLabel('This is a string', 0, 0, 300, 100, BitOR($SS_CENTER, $SS_CENTERIMAGE)) GUICtrlSetFont($_LB_TEXT, _MeasureString($hGUI, GUICtrlRead($_LB_TEXT), $_FONT_FAMILY), 0, 0, $_FONT_FAMILY, 5) GUISetState() Local $iGM While 1 $iGM = GUIGetMsg() Switch $iGM Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd _GDIPlus_Shutdown() EndFunc Func WM_SIZE($hWnd, $iMsg, $wParam, $lParam) GUICtrlSetFont($_LB_TEXT, _MeasureString($hWnd, GUICtrlRead($_LB_TEXT), $_FONT_FAMILY), 0, 0, $_FONT_FAMILY, 5) EndFunc Func _MeasureString($hWnd, $sString, $sFont = 'Arial') Local $iError, $aSize, $hGraphic, $hFormat, $hFamily, $tLayout, $iFontSize, $hFont, $aInfo If Not IsHWnd($hWnd) Then $hWnd = GUICtrlGetHandle($hWnd) EndIf $aSize = WinGetClientSize($hWnd) $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hWnd) $hFormat = _GDIPlus_StringFormatCreate() $hFamily = _GDIPlus_FontFamilyCreate($sFont) $tLayout = _GDIPlus_RectFCreate(0, 0, $aSize[0], $aSize[1]) $iFontSize = 0 Do If Not $hFamily Then $iError = 1 $iFontSize = 10 ExitLoop EndIf $iFontSize += 1 $hFont = _GDIPlus_FontCreate($hFamily, $iFontSize, 0) $aInfo = _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString($hGraphic, $sString, $hFont, $tLayout, $hFormat) _GDIPlus_FontDispose($hFont) If $aInfo[1] = 0 Then ExitLoop Until DllStructGetData($aInfo[0], 3) >= $aSize[0] Or DllStructGetData($aInfo[0], 4) >= $aSize[1] $iFontSize -= 1 _GDIPlus_FontFamilyDispose($hFamily) _GDIPlus_StringFormatDispose($hFormat) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDispose($hGraphic) Return SetError($iError, 0, $iFontSize) EndFunc

      Hi!
      I want to get the signal in this website:
      https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd
      I have tried using _IEBodyReadText  and some _StringBetween. What happens is that the text are being update every tick and _IEBodyReadText doesn't.
      To perform the update I used  _IEAction($oIE, "refresh") but it's not good because the website block me after some time due too many requests..
      Is there any other way to get this text every tick?
      PS: The text I want to get is WAIT, CALL or PUT.
       
      Here is the code:
      global $oIE = _IECreate ('https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd', 0, 1 , 1 , 0) Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') ;MsgBox ( 0, "asf", $result[0]) $espera=StringInStr($result[0], "WAIT") $compra=StringInStr($result[0], "CALL") $venda=StringInStr($result[0], "PUT") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $espera) $n=0 $c=0 Captar() Func Captar() ;_IENavigate($oIE, "https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') If (Not $compra=0) And $n=0 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "COMPRE") $n=1 $c=$c+1 ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=0 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "VENDA") $c=$c+1 $n=1 ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=1 Then ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Esperando próxima rodada") $n=1 ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=1 Then ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Esperando próxima rodada") $n=1 ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() Else ;MsgBox("", "", "ESPERE") $n=0 Sleep(1000) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') Captar() EndIf EndFunc
