Recommended Posts

trying to get a current path function in place of "C:\Users\robert\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\GIF" in this .exe that renames a sequence of files

$search = FileFindFirstFile("C:\Users\robert\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\GIF\DownloadFile\Earth\Temperature\DownloadFile\Earth\Temperature\Earth_Temperature_conNA_.jpg")
If $search = -1 Then
Exit
EndIf
While 1
    FileMove("C:\Users\robert\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\GIF\DownloadFile\Earth\Temperature\DownloadFile\Earth\Temperature\Earth_Temperature_conNA_1.jpg","C:\Users\robert\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\GIF\DownloadFile\Earth\Temperature\DownloadFile\Earth\Temperature\Earth_Temperature_conNA_0.jpg",1)

Hi,

you can complicate it in any order, depending on how often you use it and ...

The basic way would be to assign the directory to a variable:

$FileDir = "C:UsersrobertDocumentsRainmeterSkinsGIFDownloadFileEarthTemperatureDownloadFileEarthTemperature"

or one for $fileDirbase and $fileDirTarget.

That already save some typewriting, but your finally solution depends on your task.

best regards, Reinhard

Edit: If you really ment the "current path" (where the script is in) you can leave out the path

well this is for a rainmeter skin and will be transferred to other computers I'm just trying to make it so the person who uses this doesn't have to correct a bunch of file paths in the scrips and compile them to get it to work.

@ScriptDir, look in the Help file.
