_FileWriteLog question

Recommended Posts

Tripredacus

It is not mentioned in the helpfile but I have a hunch about it. Does the path where the file is written by _FileWriteLog need to exist for the function to work? For example:

_FileWriteLog("c:\temp\file.log","line 1")

If there is no c:temp folder, would _FileWriteLog still write the file there?

I always say, try it :)

#include <File.au3>

_FileWriteLog(@DesktopDir & "\TestforTripredacus.txt", "Test")







Edit: I just re-read your post. It will create the file, but will not create the folder. Sorry if I misunderstood your intent.

#include <File.au3>

_FileWriteLog(@DesktopDir & "\Test\TestforTripredacus.txt", "Test") ;Will not create folder

No, it will not create the folder. The FileOpen command inside the _FileWriteLog uses mode 1 (append) but doesn't include the option to create the path if it doesn't exist (option 8).

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
