Refresh a "RegWrite"

Recommended Posts

Hi guys ;)

For a script i need to show extension ( if is not enabled by default ) and the restore the original value after my function.

The script:

Global $Ini = @ScriptDir & "\Test.ini"


Func FileExt($parameter)
Local $RegKey = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt")
Local $SaveKey = IniRead($Ini, "Data", "HideFileExt", "")
If $parameter = "Show" And $SaveKey = 1 Then
RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt", "REG_DWORD", 0)
If $parameter = "Default" Then
RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "HideFileExt", "REG_DWORD", $SaveKey)
EndFunc ;==>FileExt

The problem is i can't see any difference :D

I have try to send F5 ( and press F5 on my keyboard ) but nothing. The only thing work is click with the mouse left on the desktop/folder --> Refresh

There is an equivalent for my script?

Thanks as always ;)

Hi, johnmcloud, maybe I am missing something, but you call FileExt("Enable") - However in your function, you have an If statement If $parameter = "Show", not "Enable". So the only portion that will ever run is the "Default".

Hi, sorry was a copy-paste error in the forum, but the problem is always the same ;)

EDIT: Maybe this can help? I don't understand it but someone maybe can:






Or again using COM ( another unknown language :D )


Seems there are many ways, but using autoit?
