Creating a Folder Using an Input Box

3 posts in this topic

I have searched through the AutoIt3 Help Files and this forum, and haven't found what I'm looking for. I would like to create a custom folder in C:\My Documents\My Pictures\*Custom Folder Here*. I am creating a script to scan photos, and I discovered the DirCreate function, but cannot figure out how to create a folder based on a string from an input box. Any help?

Thanks!

A small example:

$sDirName = InputBox("Create a dir", "Write the directory name", "A default name", '', 10, 10)
$path = "C:\My Documents\My Pictures"

If NOT @Error Then
    $sFullDirName = $path & "\" & $sDirName
    If DirCreate( $sFullDirName ) Then
        MsgBox(0, "Success", "Directory was created!" & @LF & $sFullDirName)
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "Error", "Directory wasn't created")
    EndIf
EndIf
