Input Between Strings

Recommended Posts

Hey quick question!

I am trying to input a folder name that will be inputed by the user when the script starts to obtain the correct location for the file.

For example

$Input = InputBox("File","Please enter the Folder Name")
$File2 = "C:Program Files (x86)$InputExamples_ReadMe_.txt"

In this example I would input AutoIt3 if I was the user and then my input would be stored in $Input which would be used in the file location. However, I can't seem to get it to work. I'm not sure how to declare variables between two different strings.

I've tried doing this.

$File2 = "C:Program Files (x86)" + $Input + "Examples_ReadMe_.txt"

But that didn't work either! Sorry I'm still fairly new to AutoIt, so any help would be great. Thanks! Let me know if you need more info also!

Instead of "+" use "&"

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.
