stringtrim with iniread

Recommended Posts

legend

Hi. Currently I got those 2 lines:

$testkey1 = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "key", "key", "NotFound")
$testkey = StringTrimLeft($testkey1, 5)

does someone know how I would make it in 1 line, so it does stringtrimleft, in the same line as $testkey1

legend,

This should work:

$testkey = StringTrimLeft(IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\settings.ini", "section", "key", "     NotFound"), 5)

The added 5 spaces before "NotFound" mean that you will still get that string returned complete after the stripping if the default value is returned. ;)
