[SOLVED] FileSetAttrib - Variable & Macro

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi guys, i have a question.

Why this work:

FileSetAttrib("C:\Documents and Settings\Windows Xp\Desktop\Test", "+SH",1)

And this not?

$Folder="test"
FileSetAttrib('"' & @WorkingDir & "\" & $Folder & '"', "+SH",1)

Is a limitation or my error?

Thanks for support

The only reason that wouldn't work is if @WorkingDir isn't the directory you think it is.

Uh? Is the same directory, i have create a "Test" folder. Take a look:

$NewFolder="Test"
MsgBox(0,0,'"' & @WorkingDir & "" & $NewFolder & '"')

The result is the same dir of the script with full path, so is the same.

johnmcloud,

You have superfluous quotes in your "file pattern" parameter - try this:

FileSetAttrib(@WorkingDir & "" & $Folder, "+SH",1)

You do not need quotes around variables, only strings. You need additonal quotes around path strings when you pass them to the DOS console using Run(@ComSpec & " /c "....) and they contain spaces - but not with the AutoIt native commands. :)

You have right, i have made the " " becouse i have try without it and not work. The problem was in my script i need to add a Sleep(500) between DirCreate and FileSetAttrib, withuot it i don't know why don't work on my system, maybe becouse the folder has a long name.

Thanks all

johnmcloud,

You have to give the system time to recognize the new folder. :)

      Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts
      By RyukShini
      Local $okay _FileReadToArray("Okay.txt", $okay) ; read the list of names to array For $i = 1 To UBound($okay) - 1 $Read = $okay[$i] If I run this and it goes to the end of Okay.txt it returns an error.
      "Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:"
      so can I either exitloop if its run through the file or add some error checking that exitloop if array = empty?
      Thanks in advance.

      i have this code running but it just would not start the code:
      Local $rndSleep = Int (Random(180000,240000,1000))
      MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "NaaaNuuu", "This message box will show the sleeptime after closing the tabs, you got " & $rndSleep & " seconds left.", $rndSleep)
       
      here is the error it shows me:
      "C:\Users\numan\Desktop\scipiie.au3" (23) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:

      @Username issue and temp access
      By 31290
      Hi everyone, 
      I'm writing a tool that will help my technician adding a user in the local admin group. 
      1- As the user, at first, is not part of the group, launching the .exe file ask for admin credentials. Thing is, whereas I'm using 
      RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & 'Net LocalGroup Administrators' & @username & ' /add' ,"") The @username macro is taking the admin user account in the variable instead of the current logged user one.
      Do you know how can I face this and have the "real" username value returned?
      2- do you guys think it's possible to give the admin access temporary? Maybe something to write in the reg? task scheduler? compare dates and execute a .exe? etc...?
      Thanks in advance

      Mailing from Excel/variable storing
      By Revelation343
      Purpose of script: To send emails in Outlook based on data in an excel spreadsheet. From: fields are entered for purposes of sending on behalf of (delegate), copies A2 cell from excel for To: field, Subject field is a static value and entered, returns to excel spreadsheet to read A1 and copy the first name and insert into the body of a template at an insertion point. The From, and the body of the email change based on region, so currently I have 6 different scripts that do essentially the same thing with some minor changes and want to consolidate into one script to save time.
      Question:
      To expedite the process of this and cut down on the amount of scripts, 6 in total I use daily, is it possible for me to somehow add the region to column C in excel, have autoit read column C values per row, and then decide which function, within a master script, to execute and loop this until there is no value in column C field?
      Example spreadsheet:
      Rob | rob@annuity.com |Midwest
      Annie | annie@agency.com | Midwest
      Kyle | kyle@agency.com | MidAtlantic
      Rick | rick@megasales.com | MidAtlantic
      Blank | Blank | Blank |
      Example execution:
      Run Birthday.au3, execute loop part through hotkey
      Reads row 1, C1, value is Midwest, calls Midwest(), script runs as Midwest Birthday.au3 does currently
      Reads row 2, C2, value is Midwest, calls Midwest(), script runs as Midwest Birthday.au3 does currently
      Reads row 3, C3, value is MidAtlantic, calls MidAtlantic(), script runs as MidAtlantic Birthday.au3 currently
      Reads row 4, C4, value is MidAtlantic, calls MidAtlantic(), script runs as MidAtlantic Birthday.au3 currently
      Reads row 5, C5, value is null or blank, ends script through Exit
       
      Everything I have coded in my time in AutoIt has been based mostly on mouse based movements and I don't have variable programming knowledge so I feel like I'm close to understanding how to do this, but the reading/storing variables part is beyond my current skill set. Help is appreciated.
      Mail Merges don't work as delegated in Outlook 07, for those that might be questioning why I just don't do that.
