So Ive been playing with something so no rush, but I'm trying to open a gui looking for user input, accept that user input, and write it to a file. Ive been working with InputBox and FileOpenDialog trying to see if i can force them to do what im looking for and frankly im lost.

The gyst is that im looking for a file, If that file is not there open it, then prompt the user for the information to put into that file (the name of which has already been predetermined in the script)

If FileExists($File) = 0 Then

FileOpen($File, 1)

$Userinput = ???

FileWriteLine($File, $UserInput)

EndIf

Seems simple enough, but i'm trying to figure out how to accept the user input.

Again, no rush. I know this could simply be done with a .inf file as I have already done several times, but I'm trying to do this for my own knowledge

As JohnQSmith suggests, you mention you've been looking at InputBox but have missed that the example in the help file does exactly what you're trying to accomplish. All you need to do is declare the InputBox as a variable, and then write that variable to your file.
