Search and set files attributes

7 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

I used AutoIt and would like to create a script for Customize the Quick Launch shortcut :

I search a script for search a file with the full path ex file : Microsoft Office Excel 2003.lnk and put on the file the attributes Hidden

Do you have an idea ?

Many thanks for your help

Christophe

Sorcier062,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Look at the RecFileListToArray UDF in my sig - this will let you find your .lnk file wherever it is on your drive. Then you can use FileSetAttrib to change its attributes. :D

Have a go at coding it yourself - you know where we are if you run into difficulties. ;)

I try the script and it work correctly but i don't know how to set attribute (Hidden) with the Array :

#include<Array.au3>

#include"_FileListToArrayEx.au3"

$ar_Array = _FileListToArrayEx("c:", "Microsoft Office Excel 2003.lnk", 1, 2)

;_ArrayDisplay($ar_Array, "Liste fichier") ; Ceci est facultatif, c'est juste pour afficher la liste des fichiers.

_ArrayDisplay($ar_Array,"Liste fichier") ; Ceci est facultatif, c'est juste pour afficher la liste des fichiers.

;~ MsgBox(1,"Test", $ar_Array)

FileSetAttrib($ar_Array, "+H", 1)

Sorcier062,

What you need to do is to loop through the elements of the array and set the attribute for each one.

As you didi nto use my UDF I have no idea about the format of the elements within your $ar_Array - I will assume it is the full path with a count in element [0]:

#include"_FileListToArrayEx.au3"
; Find the files
$ar_Array = _FileListToArrayEx("c:", "Microsoft Office Excel 2003.lnk", 1, 2)
;Loop through the array
For $i = 1 To $ar_Array[0]
    ; And for each file in the array we set the attribute
    FileSetAttrib($ar_Array[$i], "+H") ; Do not use 1 here - we do nto want recursion ;)
Next

Array and loops are fundamental parts of a coders toolbox - you need to learn how to use them. Have you looked at the excellent AutoIt tutorials here and here. There is also an Arrays tutorial in the Wiki that would be worth a look. ;)

Good luck. :)

Sorcier062,

We all were at one time. :D

Those tutorials are very good - I do suggest reading/running them. :)

And you know where we are if you have questions - as long as you have looked in the Help file first! ;)
