nested loop and calling _FileListToArray data

Recommended Posts

aleph01

I have a function which returns an array of domain computernames based on a selection from a listbox GUI. The usage is as below, with $SourcePath, $DestPath, and $SourceFile all being generated by inputboxes.

For $sItems = 1 To $aItems[0]
FileCopy($SourcePath, "\\" & $aItems[$sItems] & "\" & $DestPath & "\" & $SourceFile, 1)
Next

I also have code which returns an array of subfolders within a folder successfully.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
dim $sFilter, $iFlag, $TargetFolder, $TargetItem
$TargetFolder = InputBox ("Target Directory Path", "Note: Input the target folder in this form: """\\CUOPAC1\C$\Documents and Settings"""            (No trailing backslash, no quotes.)", "", "", 260, 160)
If @error = 1 Then Exit
Local $FileList = _FileListToArray($TargetFolder, "*", 2)
If @error = 1 Then
MsgBox(0, "No Folders Found", "Folders or Path Not Found.")
Exit
EndIf
_ArrayDisplay($FileList, "$FileList")

What I'm having a problem with is writing a nested For...Next loop that for each selected computer, scans the folders returned by _FileListToArray. Specifically, I'm having trouble specifying the variables returned by _FileListToArray.

I think it would go something like this:

For $sItems = 1 To $aItems[0]
For <however I need to call the _FileListToArray data>
     If FileExists(.....) Then
         MsgBox (...)
     EndIf
Next
Next

Does that sound right? How do I call the _FileListToArray data?

Sorry for the long post. I hope I made myself clear. Thanks in advance for your help. This forum is a godsend for me.


Meds.  They're not just for breakfast anymore. :'(

I'm not sure this is what you're looking for because your explanation was a bit hard to follow. But this might give you some ideas.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Global $sFilter, $iFlag, $TargetFolder, $TargetItem, $FileList
For $OuterLoop = 1 To $aItems[0]
    $TargetFolder = InputBox("Target Directory Path", "Note: Input the target folder in this form: ""C$Documents and Settings""            (No trailing backslash, no quotes.)", "", "", 260, 160)
    If @error = 1 Then Exit
    $FileList = _FileListToArray($aItems[$OuterLoop] & "" & $TargetFolder, "*", 2)
    If @error = 1 Then
        MsgBox(0, "No Folders Found", "Folders or Path Not Found.")
        Exit
    EndIf
    _ArrayDisplay($FileList, "$FileList")
    For $InnerLoop = 1 To $FileList[0]
        ; // do something here
    Next
Next

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.

Thanks, BrewManNH, that looks promising. I'll give it a trial run in the morning and let you know.
