Need help with retriving values form a text file.

6 posts in this topic

Hello Autoit Forum,

I'm working with a device that communicates serially and would like to compare current WIFI settings on the device with those in the script so it can update the gui controls with the settings and avoid changing settings that don't need to be changed.

I have it writing the settings to a text file but not sure how to read them into variables.

This is the output below. Any advice or direction would be very helpful, I'm stuck here and need a push. I looked around and did not see anything that dealt with the big spaces like in this file.

Wireless Network Settings

Look at FileRead or _FileReadToArray and then parse the data from there. What exact information do you require? As a regular expression would be the most efficient way I could think of or you could opt for String functions instead. As you can see there are many ways to do this.

Yeah everything you said went right over my head.

You talked right over my head. :huh:   I would need all the information form the file eventually but for now let's say I just wanted to know if DHCPv4 was enabled or better yet saved to a variable. $DHCPv4 = enabled

First things first, open the help file and read about the functions I mentioned. You might also want to consider StringInStr.

I will give this to you as a freebie, but I guess you need to study a little more before you get to this level of programming. 

$fDHCP = StringRegExp(FileRead($sFilePath), '(?im)^DHCPv4\s*:\s*Enabled') = 1
ConsoleWrite($fDHCP & @CRLF)

Couldn't strip the trailing spaces without the strip function...but it works:

$string = FileRead(@DesktopDir & "\test2.txt")
$array = StringRegExp($string, "(.*)\s+:\s(.*)\r*\n*", 4)
for $i = 0 to UBound($array)-1
    $aTemp = $array[$i]
    ConsoleWrite("key=[" & StringStripWS($aTemp[1],2) & "]" & @TAB)
    ConsoleWrite("value=[" & StringStripWS($aTemp[2],2) & "]" & @CRLF)
Next

output:

key=[DHCPv4] value=[Disabled]
key=[iP Address] value=[192.168.90.90]
key=[subnet Mask] value=[255.255.255.0]
key=[Gateway] value=[10.2.90.1]
key=[Primary DNS] value=[10.2.90.1]
key=[secondary DNS] value=[0.0.0.0]
key=[Auto IP Address] value=[169.254.248.124]
key=[iPv6 Static Address] value=[Disabled]
key=[DHCPv6] value=[Disabled]
key=[iPv6 Autoconfigured Address] value=[FE80::240:9DFF:FE58:2495]

key=[Protocol Mode] value=[infrastructure]
key=[sSID] value=[gedvt]
key=[Country Name] value=[united States]
key=[Multi Domain Capability (802.11d)] value=[Disabled]
key=[spectrum Management Capability (802.11h)] value=[Disabled]
key=[Frequency Band] value=[band bg]
key=[Channel] value=[0 (search)]
key=[WPA Personal (WPA-PSK)] value=[Enabled]
key=[tkip] value=[Enabled]
key=[username] value=[username]

oh, multi liners won't work, and the DNS one needs some work also...rest look fine

jdelaney,

#include <Array.au3>
; This will skip lines such as:
#cs
    Authentication
    --------------
#ce
; and your whitespace issue.

Local $aArray = StringRegExp(ClipGet(), '(?!\V*[\r\n]+-{10}\h+)(\V*)\h+:\h(\V*)[\h\r\n]+', 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)
