Increment downloaded image filename by one

6 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone! Been away from scripting for a bit and am a bit rusty. 

I was trying to get downloaded image filenames to increment by one. I was hoping to be able to check the last filename and continue from there if the program was closed and reopened again.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$biolister = GUICreate("Form1", 125, 97, 192, 124)
$start = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 8, 40, 41, 33)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00FFFF)
$stop = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 72, 40, 41, 33)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
$Bio = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Bio Lister", 24, 8, 80, 28)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $filename = 0
    $sImgDir = "C:\filepathname\"&$filename&".jpg"
    $sImgUrl = ""
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
         Case $stop
         case $start
            InetGet($sImgUrl, $simgdir, 1, 0)
            if fileexists( $simgdir & $filename) then $filename + 1

I personally would use an INI file in your @ScriptDir to store things such as the last filename used etc..

Use string parsing (if your file names are consistent) to obtain the last file number used... (or better yet, just store it in the ini)

So... This is an example of your INI File




And this would be the code...

$oldNumber = IniRead(@ScriptDir & $INIFileName, "PreviousVariables", "lastNum", "Unfound")+1
$oldFileNam = IniRead(@ScriptDir & $INIFileName, "PreviousVariables", "fileName", "Unfound")

$NewFileName = $oldFileNam&$oldNumber

Something like that anyway... (Not tested, and free-handed under sleep deprivation... If there's a missing ", my eyes are going cross-eyed lol.


Oh, and be sure to INIWrite to the file to update the oldNumber each time.

Thanks Andreu, but I can't get it to work. I do appreciate your assistance though :)

I might just do a and use a batch file rename programs separately to name the files in an orderly way, being that the "for" statement will create the same names again,

Post an example of what you tried, and I'm sure I can fix it for you.

(Note: You do have to create an ini file... Though, using IniWrite trying to write to a ini file that doesn't exist will cause it to create it FOR you.)

if fileexists( $simgdir & $filename) then $filename += 1


Sorry mate, just overwrites the file

It's OK, I did a loop, then used a different program to rename them in chronological order. It can start renaming from the last number too, which is handy. It's heaps easier and doesn't take long.

Thanks anyways guys. Have a great night!

      Hi All,
      I have many files inside folder with ID Number. The problem here is I want to get ID Number,  file name inside folder and Get Size of its.

      What's the best way to receive file from a desktop app?
      app.exe will execute a cmd with "au3file.exe /path/of/the/file.xml" and the au3file.exe will get and delete that. Or else? THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE QUESTION
      And best way to transfer file to a desktop app?
      au3file.exe do a $_POST request and the app.exe MUST HAVE a local HTTP server that can receive $_POST, but it looks heavy 'cause the app must have a server such XAMPP. au3file.exe execute a cmd with "app.exe /path/of/the/file.xml" and the app.exe will now get that file and delete. Or else?

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on this little project for a week, and, what I'm trying to do could be useful for many users as well...
      I'm trying to do a "Report Generator", which reads the data that have to report from a text file (.txt) formatted with this pattern;

      YES, there are 2 semi-colon at the end of the line.

      In detail, Data1 is a date/time stamp with this format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS ;

      When the script starts, the user is prompted to choose 2 dates which I'll call as:
      Report_Date_Start; Report_Date_Start. So, the report, should cover all dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End.

      And, already at this point, I don't know how to do the query... How can I say to the script:
      SELECT * FROM (.txt) WHERE Data1 BETWEEN Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End; ?

      I thought that I could do a _DateDiff, but if the difference between the two dates is months and not days, how can I do the trick?
      Should I make a Switch...Case with the _DateDiff() and see then calculate all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End... But then, how can I compare the dates in the file with all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End? I'm going crazy, I know...

      I've already made a "Export Tool", which exports the content of the .txt file in a .db, managed with SQLite... I mean, there I could easily do a query like I did above the thread, but, this "export", for 1080 rows, takes 28 seconds to be done. And, 1080 rows are daily rows that are added every day in the .txt file, so, in a week, the file could be easily 7000+ rows, which means that the "export" would take 3 minutes to be done... And we can go over and over...
      I'll post just for be "complete" what I've done about the export, so, maybe, someone could say how to improve it in terms of efficency...
      Local $aContenutoFileAuditReport = "" _FileReadToArray($sFileAudit_Report, $aContenutoFileAuditReport) If(IsArray($aContenutoFileAuditReport) And Not @error) Then Local $aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted = "" Local $sQuery = "" Local $hInizioConteggio = TimerInit() For $i = 1 To UBound($aContenutoFileAuditReport) - 1 $aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted = StringSplit($aContenutoFileAuditReport[$i], ";") $sQuery = "INSERT INTO FileDB_Report(DATESTAMP, TIMESTAMP, USER_ID, OBJECT_ID, DESCRIPTION, COMMENT) " & _ "VALUES(" & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[0]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[1]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[3]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[4]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[5]) & "," & _ _SQLite_FastEscape($aContenutoFileAuditReport_Splitted[6]) & ");" If(_SQLite_Exec($hFileDB_Report, $sQuery) <> $SQLITE_OK) Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante l'esecuzione della query #" & $i & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("Query eseguita correttamente #" & $i & @CRLF) EndIf Next ConsoleWrite("Esportazione completata in: " & Round(TimerDiff($hInizioConteggio)/1000, 0) & " secondi") Else MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la lettura del file nell'array." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) EndIf I know that I can't do queries from a .txt file...
      I've been writing this post from 18:40 maybe...
      By the way, if @jchd or someone else could tell me if I can import a formatted .txt file in SQLite and then, do queries on the DB, I'd be very happy for that...
      About the report in PDF, I'm talking with @taietel in order to know how to create a PDF.
      I hope someone will help me
      Sorry for the "long" list of questions...
      Thank you for everything you've done for me
      I have to say that this is the community of programming language that I've loved most!
      By the way, I'll be back tomorrow in the morning ( ~ 9:15 a.m. Italian time ), so, excuse me if I can't answer before that time.
      Hope you guys have a wonderful day/night.

      Thanks again

      We can get a list of file using the below code.
      Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray(@DesktopDir, "*") Is there any option to use the above one recursively to get sub folders and their contents also.??
      And also, is there any way to serialize the above array locally to some file and load it later when we want in another program on another machine so that we can compare its contents with a folder in different machine, which is not network connected also.?
