StringInStr

7 posts in this topic

Hi All:

I am trying to automate a flashing procedure in target. I am sending commands via a console and taking logs in a text file. I am reading the text file and once I get the success message of the first command, I send the second command.

But its not working :)

Below is the code snippet of the function that checks for the success message.

Func FlashCheck()

sleep(60000)

$vValue2 = "SUCCESS: flashing finished!"

Do

$chars2 = FileReadLine($file)

$Search2 = StringInStr ( $chars2, $vValue2)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

Until $Search2 > 0

Send("{ENTER}")

EndFunc

I am calling this function Flashcheck after the first command as below in the main program:

Send("1st command")

Send("{ENTER}")

$Search2 = 0

FlashCheck()

Send("{ENTER}")

Send("2nd Command")

Could you please let me know where is it going wrong?

Hi ,

If I use the Msg Box.. then I see that all the lines are read from the log.

Func FlashCheck()

sleep(60000)

$vValue2 = "SUCCESS: flashing finished!"

Do

$chars2 = FileReadLine($file)

MsgBox(0, "Check", $chars2)

$Search2 = StringInStr ( $chars2, $vValue2)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

Until $Search2 > 0

Send("{ENTER}")

EndFunc

If I keep on Clicking OK..once it matches the string to be searched in the line.. it sends the next command...

gbr,

But its not working

is not a description of the problem... One thing that I would check just looking at these two functions is the scope of $Search2. It appears that you are counting on it retaining it's value from function to function... For further help post all of the code or a representative reproducer. Good Luck, kylomas Edited by kylomas

Actually, in lieu of the OP replying I'm going to take a guess at the possible problem.

I'm imagining the code has been copy and pasted from somewhere and the StringInStr

func just thrown in after.

So Move your @error check for -1 to immediately after the call to FileReadLine.
