How to make my results in different names within an infinite loop script

5 posts in this topic

I used While WEnd to make a loop and finally put my data into a notepad file.

But how can I save each notepad as a different name (for example based on the number of the loops)?

Thanks

firejack527,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Keep a counter than increases with each pass through the loop. Then concantenate this counter to the basic file name using the & operator when you save. If you wanted to be really fancy you could use StringFormat to pad the value with leading 0s. ;)

Give it a go yourself and come back if you run into difficulties. :)

Thanks for your help but how can I add a counter and connect it with my loop?

firejack527,

Something like this is what I was suggesting: :)

$sBaseFileBase = "FileLog"
$iCounter = 0

While 1
    ; Increase the counter by 1
    $iCounter += 1
    ; Create the new filename
    $sCurrentFileLog = $sBaseFileBase & $iCounter & ".txt"
    ; Just to show the result
    MsgBox(0, "This pass", "Counter: " & $iCounter & @CRLF & "This file: " &  $sCurrentFileLog)
    ; And to stop before we get too bored!
    If $iCounter = 5 Then ExitLoop

WEnd

All clear? :)
