Write to text file?

9 posts in this topic

MsgBox(4096, '', _Timer_Diff($timertransition))

So this is how I get the Timer_diff in a MsgBox...

Is there a way I can get autoIT to automatically write this information to a text-file instead of a MsgBox?

I know the answer is Yes, I just dont know how to do it hehe :)

Thanks for any support guys, have a nice thursday evening.

Here's a good start - FileOpen. You'll find all kinds of useful and helpful stuff in the Help file.

MrMax,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

You are quite correct in assuming that the answer is "Yes" - but have you looked in teh Help file to see if you can find any functions yourself that might do the trick? :huh:

Hint: You want to write to a file - so a combination of the 2 words might be good thing to look for. ;)

Okay cool :)

It seems that most FileWrite commands etc need to have the file open to be able to write to it?

Is it possible to use the iniWrite command instead? http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/IniWrite.htm

Also in the iniWrite command:

IniWrite ( "filename", "section", "key", "value"

What does Section mean? And Key?

Can I write my command like this:

IniWrite ("whatevername.ini", "Section 1?", "key?", "_Timer_Diff($timertransition)

Would that command coupled with a timer_init give a file named whatevername.ini with the value of the timer_diff?

EDIT: Sorry never done much coding in C nor scripting :) So I'm a total newb

A little help with ini files... The section is an overall category. The key is a sub-category. The value is the the value for that particular key. Example code:

[Section]
Key=Value

[Fruits]
Apples=11
Oranges=6
Peaches=17

[Cars]
American=Ford,Chevy,GM
Foreign=Toyota,Kia,Hyundai

[MyComputer]
Memory=512MB
Processor=i7
Motherboard=Asus
Power_Supply=Rosewill
Warranty=5 years

An example using random times around 1-10 seconds, writing to an ini file in the same directory as the script:

#include <Timers.au3>
$starttime = _Timer_Init()

Do
$randomTime = Random(0, 900)
Sleep($randomTime)
Until $randomTime > 850

$TimeDifference = Round(_Timer_Diff($starttime), 0)/1000 & " seconds"
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\time.ini", "LastTime", "Value", $TimeDifference)
ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\time.ini")

If you know what an INI file is then you should know the basic structure of an INI file.
