Automate Notepad

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am writing script to automate Notepad, Save the notepad in Default location (Documents) and if file with the name already exist then Rename the file and Save it.

I would like to know how we can write code for if file exist then append file name with 1 or 2. For example Test name file exist then replace name with Test1 or Test2 etc. I already wrote few line.

--------------

Run("notepad.exe")

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send("I started learning Automation")

WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")

WinWaitActive("Notepad", "")

Send("!s")

WinWaitActive("Save As", "")

Send("Test")

Sleep(5000)

Send("!s")

WinWaitActive("Confirm Save As")

--------------------

Please help me in this as I am new in scripting and AutoIt.

Thanks You!

mdmoeenajazkhan,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

You posted this question in the Examples section where there is a big banner at the top: "This is not a general support forum!". Please post in the correct place in future. ;)

mdmoeenajazkhan,

Certainly! Take a look at this: ;)

Global $iIncrement

; See what the next file is to be named
If FileExists(@ScriptDir & "Test.txt") Then
    ; Start increment count
    $iIncrement = 1
    ; Now loop until we find the next available filename
    While 1
        ; Check if Test# exists
        If Not FileExists(@ScriptDir & "Test" & $iIncrement & ".txt") Then
            ; If it does not then we have the new name
            ExitLoop
        Else
            ; We need to check the next incremental name
            $iIncrement += 1
        EndIf
        ; If we need to keep looking we loop again
    WEnd
EndIf

MsgBox(0, "Next File", "Test" & $iIncrement)

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

Send("I started learning Automation")

WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
WinWaitActive("Notepad", "")

Send("!s")

WinWaitActive("Save As", "")

; Send the name we found was next in line
Send(@ScriptDir & "Test" & $iIncrement & ".txt")

Sleep(5000)

Send("!s")

I have added lots of comments, but please ask if you have any questions. :)
