Recommended Posts

sbrady

1. I have selected 3 files that I need to rename.

2. I found a script that displays an array window with all selected files.AND 2 OTHER FILES, all 5 files show up in the code below in the variable $File_Name.

3. I need to cycle through the selected items and rename them.

4. I will need to check the variable to see if the file name contains certain words, do I use Strginstg

5. what loop do I use, For.....next

thanks for any help

; START SHAWN's CODE
; repeat with the selected items
For $File_Name = 1 To $aSelection
; check if file name contains "Full MIX" or "SOT MIX" or "M&E MIX"

; rename the variable $File_Name
  
  
MsgBox(0, "File Name", $File_Name)
Next
; END SHAWN's CODE

You are trying to rename all files that are named "Full MIX", "SOT MIX" and "M&E MIX" to what?

“Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

I can do the rename, I just need to get the file name in a loop

the original name will be something like "RR123 Smith, Bob v1 - FULL MIX.wav"

rename will be "RR123 Smith Bob FULL MIX v1.wav"

thanks for all the help

And you're stating that $aSelection contains the list of files you want to search through?

Given that $aSelection[0] is a file name (not either a file count nor the Full Path to the file)

Local $sBaseDir = "C:PathToFile", $sOutDir = "C:PathToOutputDirectory", $sRename = "rename.wav"
Local $aSearch[3] = ["Full MIX","SOT MIX","M&E MIX"]
Local $i
For $file in $aSelection
  $i = 0
  For $term in $aSearch
    $i+=1
    If StringInStr($file, $term) Then 
      If Not FileMove($sBaseDir & $file, $sOutDir & $sRename, 8) Then _
        ConsoleWrite("Failed to move file: " & $file & @CRLF)
      ExitLoop
    Else
      If $i = 3 Then ConsoleWrite("No match in file: " & $file & @CRLF)
    EndIf
  Next
Next
