trouble reading file


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Trring to get screen data off a console app. Which I have successfully done and then I write that data to a file successfully.

THen one I try to read the file it doesnt seem to work. I have tried _FileCountLines and it says the there is 14 lines but trying FileReadLine it doesreturn anything . The file its Saves is ANSI. Hope ppl can help :)

Here is my code:

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Global $PID = Run("pdfinfo.exe IM_Rev4.pdf", @WorkingDir, @SW_MINIMIZE, $STDERR_MERGED)
Global $sStdOut = ""
$sStdOut &= StdoutRead($PID)
Until @error
FileDelete(@ScriptDir & "\text.txt")

If Not _FileCreate("test.txt") Then
MsgBox(4096, "Error", " Error Creating/Resetting log. error:" & @error)
Local $file = FileOpen("test.txt", 1)

If $file = -1 Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
FileWrite($file, $sStdOut)

Local $line = FileReadLine($file,8)

MsgBox(0, "Line read:", $line)

the filehandle you used is only for writing operations use with flag 0 for read operations :)

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.
