Cut and Paste Automation

4 posts in this topic

Hello All.

I have a question about cut and paste. I need to retrieve a bit of information from a flat file.

The data will change each time I loop to the next file, and I know the exact position that the data will be in each time.

I would like to open the file with notepad, arrow over 44 spaces and copy the next 9, and then paste the data into an input field.

Does anyone know any methods that will work here?

Thanks in advance.

Look at StringMid() in the help file...


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

This will do the trick

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate(" My GUI input ", 320,120)

$input = GUICtrlCreateInput ("", 10,  35, 300, 20)  
$btn1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("G&et info", 80,  75, 60, 25)
$btn2 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("S&end info", 160,  75, 60, 25)

GUISetState () 

$msg = 0
While $msg <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
       $msg = GUIGetMsg()
       Select
            Case $msg = $btn1
                $file = FileOpen("test.txt", 0)
                $line = FileReadLine($file)
                $line2 = StringTrimLeft($line, 44)
                $line3 = StringLeft($line2, 9)
                GUICtrlSetData($input, $line3)
                FileClose($file)
            Case $msg = $btn2
                MsgBox (4096, "Sending", GUICtrlRead($input))
       EndSelect
Wend
