IniRead,IniDelete and IniWrite for file without Section name problem

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

Local $var = IniRead("C:\Temp\myfile.ini", "section2", "key", "NotFound")
MsgBox(4096, "Result", $var)
 
IniWrite("C:\Temp\myfile.ini", "section2", "key", "this is a new value")

IniDelete("C:\Temp\myfile.ini", "section2", "key")

The example codes above works for this ini file below

myfile.ini

[section2]
Key=Value
Key1=Value1
Key2=Value2

But what examples for iniRead, iniDelete and iniWrite works for this ini file below

myfile1.ini

Key=Value
Key1=Value1
Key2=Value2

This myfile1.ini dont have a section name, so how does one use iniRead, iniDelete and iniWrite on it?

Any help on this problem of mine?

Thank you.

You can't. Whithout section names it's not an ini file you can read/change using this functions.You could create a copy of the ini file, add a dummy section header and then use the ini functions to process the ini file.

As you can see from the help file:

"A standard ini file looks like:

[sectionName]

Key=Value"

You can't, the INIxxx functions require a section name. You'd have to use something like FileRead, or FileReadLine, or perhaps even _FileReadToArray. Your example ini file doesn't follow the specifications for an ini file, so standard functions that require the file to follow those specs won't work.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
