One GUI, multiple Input boxes that create answer file in specific format

10 posts in this topic

Good Day.

I have programmed in Autoit a long long time ago and now I would like to pick it up again but now I am pressed to create a script that will capture the answers form a GUI with multiple input boxes in the one GUI and then create an answer file in a specific format.

ex: All in the same GUI

Incumbent 1 Incumbent 2

1: (answer 1) Points: 1: (answer 1) Points:

2. (answer 2) Points: 2. (answer 2) Points:

3: (answer 3) Points: 3: (answer 3) Points:

4: (answer 4) Points: 4: (answer 4) Points:

5: (answer 5) Points: 5: (answer 5) Points:

(Button) Populate part 1 (save) (Button) Populate part 2 (save)

(Button) Clear answer file (which would reset the answer file to it's original state)

(Button) Clear form

Answer file (standard xml format):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<questions>

<question text="New table">

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

<answer text="" points=""/>

</question>

</questions>

The answer data would be placed between the "" in the respective lines. For text and points.

I know I'm asking a lot but I just don't know were to start. Thanks in advance for any reply.

Thanks for the reply. So I looked at the help file and for the XML file it's not to relevent (my bad) it is just a TXT file. I am almost there...I was able to create my GUI with the inout boxes but now I am trying to write to a specific line and collumn but I can't fine how. I can write to the file but not hwere I want it to be.

ex:

Answer file:

< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

< questions>

<question text="New table">

<answer text="(With answer 1, I want to write here)" points="(With answer 2, I want to write here)"/>

<answer text="(With answer 3, I want to write here)" points="(With answer 4, I want to write here)"/>

<answer text="(With answer 5, I want to write here)" points="(With answer 6, I want to write here)"/>

and so on...

That looks like an XML file to me.

< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

If you've written code then best to show us what you've written.

I only did the one line for testing and only for Incumbant 1, but I will repeat 4 more times (5 answers each).

I believe it goes in order in which they are created in the script. So either create them in the order you want, or juggle the value of their handles.
