chkdsk gui in WinPE array error

Recommended Posts

hackersarchangel

I have a project I'm working on, as part of a maintenance disk. I want to make a GUI for automating chkdsk startup, as in I run the GUI, then I select what drives I'm wanting to chkdsk. I want to run this from a PE based enviroment, I believe the disk I've chosen is a BartPE based disk, if that matters.

Here's where my issue comes into play. When I start the program I have it set to specify a log save location with a Save As box. That part works great, so I have it make the GUI. Here's the issue: When I'm making the GUI, I want it to grab the drive letters and use that as part of either Checkboxes OR multiple dropdown menus. That part I'm flexible on, I just want it to work, and the dropdown menus was just another way of thinking about it.

So I figured out how to grab drive letters into an array and do an If-Then for less than 4 drives (test machine has 3 drives, trying to get it work before worrying about whether or not it's less than 2 or 3):

Global $Drives[5] = ["1","2","3","4","5"]
$Drives = DriveGetDrive("Fixed")
If $Drives[0] < 4 Then
    $Drives[4] = "None"
EndIf

For some reason, when I run that code, it flips it's lid about being outside my subscript range. I added the ReDim command to resize it back to 5, but that still doesn't work. Now if I set it when I initialize it, it's fine, and I can edit it all I want to manually, just not with DriveGetDrive.

Current modified code:

Global $Drives[5] = ["1","2","3","4","5"]
$Drives = DriveGetDrive("Fixed")
If $Drives[0] < 4 Then
  ReDim $Drives[5]
    $Drives[4] = "None"
EndIf

What I would like to do is resize the Array to fix the amount of drives I have, i.e. if I have 2 drives, make it 3 slots big, [0] for the count it generates, [1] for drive 1, [2] for drive 2, etc. and if it doesn't get a reply from slots 3 and 4, disable those checkboxes/remove the entry from the dropdown list. But that is further complicating the issue as it is, just want the basic premise to work.

If anyone has any ideas for this little issue, I'm welcoming the ideas.

hackersarchangel,

No need to ReDim the array - the function returns a suitably sized array for you automatically, so there is no need to check its size: :oops:

Global $Drives = DriveGetDrive("Fixed")

Once you have the array, you can run a loop For $i = 1 To $Drives[0] to create your checkboxes/combo list. :bye:

Ok so I was doing it right, as far as grabbing the variable. So use a For-Next loop to make the boxes that way, so it doesn't complain about being outside of the subscript range?

Just making sure I'm understanding this correctly, and that would work.

hackersarchangel,

Using the count element means that you remain within the bounds automatically so you should not have that problem. :oops:

But you know where we are if you find something else not working. :bye:

That I do :oops: You guys have always been helpful :bye:

Ok I'll try this when I have a minute today, have some other things going on.

Request thread be closed, going to start a thread about the project in general asking if anyone wants to contribute to the project in an Open Source form.

      hi,
      i have checkboxes and each checkbox that checked, i put in array. 
      now, im stuck on how to loop the checked array and store in in one variable. what i can do now, is only write the result into a text file. 
      below is the code:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;~ #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $Count = 3 Global $CheckBoxP[$Count] Global $step[$Count] global $array1[1] Global $ExitResult $hGUI = GUICreate("Summary Steps", 500, 400) GUISetFont(12, 400, "Tahoma") GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Select the Summary Steps for Script Check", 70, 20) GUISetFont(10, 400, "Tahoma") Global $array_Pstep[3] = ["fix2","fix1","fix3"] global $step[3] = ["2","3","4"] $Spacing = 50 For $i = 0 To UBound($array_Pstep) - 1 $CheckBoxP[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($array_Pstep[$i], 80, $Spacing + (20 * $i), 65, 17) Next $submit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Submit",180, 280, 80, 30) $exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit",180, 320, 80, 30) GUISetState() While 1 $Msg = GUIGetMsg() Select case $Msg=$submit For $i = 0 To $Count - 1 If GUICtrlRead($CheckBoxP[$i]) = $GUI_CHECKED Then _ArrayAdd($array1, $step[$i]) EndIf Next Global $logfilerray = @WorkingDir & "\checkedlist.txt" FileDelete ($logfilerray) Global $readlogfile = FileOpen($logfilerray,1) for $a = 1 to UBound($array1) - 1 ;~ $var=$array1[$a] FileWriteLine($readlogfile,$array1[$a]) Next FileClose($readlogfile) Exit case $Msg=$exit $ExitResult = MsgBox(1,"Summary Step", "Continue to Exit ?") if $ExitResult = 1 Then ;ok Exit EndIf Exit EndSelect WEnd

      How do you perform a nested loop function with a multidimensional array from 2 lists.
      for i in list1
      (open file) extract variable
          while open for i in list 2
          (open file2) extract variable
       
      var1 + var2 = (search term)

      The list sizes will more than likely consist of different lengths.
       
      What is the best approach to accomplishing this method?

      Hello!

      I am working on a function that I am just getting lost on. The goal is a multiple nested loop.

      Here are the steps:
      Contents of file1.txt::
      [topic] var1=Name var2=OtherName var3=SomeotheName Contents of file2.txt::
      [subTopic] top=sub1 top2=sub2 top3=sub3 The Shell I am working from::
      #include <file.au3> $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) msgbox(0,'','the line ' & $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file) Understanding however that the "msgbox" needs to then become a variable. in example the following::
      $file = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) While true( prog.exe is running && "WinName" is open) do For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ;Open File to log "current location of file 1" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) var = $line Next $file2 = "c:\yourfile.txt" FileOpen($file, 0) For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file) $line = FileReadLine($file, $i) ; OpenFile to log "Current location of file 2" FileWriteLine ("filename", $i & ' is ' & $line) Next FileClose($file2) FileClose($file) The goal in written form is the following ::

      While in "OpenWindow"
          read from file 1 starting at line 1 until end of file.
         file 1 is a list of names to be searched.
         With $line selected, add this element to the element in file 2.
       
      The search of a variables in list 1 and list 2 differ on the amount of posts that day. (This is not a web based platform, it is a game) I need to search 2 names and take a screenshot of the out put. The sizes of the names list depend on the activity of names at the time of search.
      This loop continues until all the names from both lists have been searched. Mostly in the format of::
      File1= item
      File2= Vendor
       
      Item + Vendor  ( Capture screen, scroll) -- Not sure how to detect if I need to scroll)
       
      Thank you for your help and support!

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.
