need a bit of help...

Recommended Posts

i am writing a program for phpbb that will create MODs, and it doesnt write what i tell it to write.

heres part of the code from that program (parts with ";-;-;-;-;-;-;-;-;" are where unimportant parts were taken out):

$actionMenu=GUICtrlCreateCombo ( "SQL", 85, 25, 200, 23)
$actionMenuItems=GUICtrlSetData ( -1, "COPY|DIY INSTRUCTIONS|OPEN|FIND|REPLACE WITH|AFTER, ADD|BEFORE, ADD|INCREMENT|IN-LINE FIND|IN-LINE AFTER, ADD|IN-LINE BEFORE, ADD|IN-LINE REPLACE WITH" )
;-;-;-;-;-;-;-;-;
$action = GUICtrlRead ( $actionMenu )
$actionInputText = "# " & @CRLF & "#-----[ " & $action & " ]------------------------------------------" _
 & @CRLF & "# " & @CRLF
$textInput = GUICtrlCreateEdit ( $actionInputText, 40, 117, 300, 150 )
$text = GUICtrlRead ( $textInput )
$actions = $actions & $text & @CRLF
;-;-;-;-;-;-;-;-;
FileWrite ( $mod, $actions )

so lets say i select "SQL" from $actionMenu. $textInput comes up with the following contents:

# 
#-----[ SQL ]------------------------------------------
#
i type "do something" at the end of whats already there so i end up with
# 
#-----[ SQL ]------------------------------------------
# 
do something

but, here is what gets writtin to the file:

# 
#-----[ SQL ]---------------------
#

there is no "do something" at the end. whats the problem here?

$rc=FileWrite ( $mod, $actions )

Meh ??????????

Don't think this statement is at the right spot :

$text = GUICtrlRead ( $textInput )

You want the read the information from the field only at Save() time...

In func Save() you set $action to a string and never change it anymore... so how do you expect that the text from the edit field gets into the file ?

$action and $actions are two seperate variables if that was missed...

but sorry, i dont get what you're saying.

and $text has to be declared there otherwise how can it do

$actions = $actions & $text & @CRLF

change this area

#comments-end
    $actionInputText = "# " & @CRLF & "#-----[ " & $action & " ]------------------------------------------" & @CRLF & "# " & @CRLF
    $textInput = GUICtrlCreateEdit ( $actionInputText, 40, 117, 300, 150 )
    
EndFunc
Func update()
    $text = GUICtrlRead ( $textInput )
    $actions = $actions & $text & @CRLF

    $fileName=InputBox ( "Save as...", bla bla.................

hope it helps

EDIT and you will need to declare.... i do it like this

Dim $file = "", $actions = "", $action = "", $text = "", $TextInput = ""

another suggestion...

look at removing this area

$fileName=InputBox ( "Save as...", "Type the file name you would like to save the mod as. (don't forget to add .mod or .txt"_
    & " at the end, or you will end up with an unusable file!)")
    If $fileName = 2 Then Exit
    global $file=InputBox ( "Save as...", "Type the location of where to save the mod file:", @HomeDrive & @HomePath & "\" & $fileName, "", _
    -1, -1, 0, 0)
    If $file = 2 Then Exit

because it's not real clean and the user has to type the location

replace it with this

$file = FileSaveDialog( "Type the file name you would like to save the mod as.",  @HomeDrive & @HomePath & "\", "Mod File (*.mod)", 3 + 16)
; option 3 = dialog remains until valid path/file selected

you would need to change your script just a little

like remove

_FileCreate ( $file )

just an idea that i think will improve your scripts overall utility

Hope it helps

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Just look at these few lines on your original code....

move these two lines

$text = GUICtrlRead ( $textInput )

$actions = $actions & $text & @CRLF

into the update() function

Can i ask why that made a difference? I mean why did moving it and the changing it to dim help? I guess i should read up more on dim.

@theguy0000

I was once a frequent phpbb user and what i found most annoying was staring at those txt documents when adding a mod, my suggestion to you is also to make a mod reader, i think it would be popular. Ex:

Files To Edit:

index.php

cash.php

othershit.php

Sql to change:

Whole bunch of crazy shit!
