Passing a variable with quotation marks around it

Recommended Posts

NateF

Hello, I have been trying to set a variable that contains quotation marks, but I can not seem to figure out how to go about this..

This will capture $name from the user input box, and it passed the variable along to the text file without an issue. 

The next part of the script requires this variable to have quotation marks around it if (if it is more than one word)

 

I am looking for a method to include quotation marks ("") within this variable, or simply pass the variable with quotation marks around it. Basically, I'm trying to get the  '$name'  variable in the text file to contain quotes. How would I go about accomplishing something like this? I am encountering errors with everything I try.

  

 

Here is the code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 225, 122, 302, 218)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form2Close")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_MINIMIZE, "Form2Minimize")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE, "Form2Maximize")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_RESTORE, "Form2Restore")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 24, 80, 171, 33)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Button1Click")
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 16, 24, 185, 21)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "Input1Change")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func Button1Click()
     Global $name = GUICtrlRead($input1)
     Global $file = FileOpen("newfile.txt", 1)

FileWriteLine($file, "fdk.setname " & $name)

FileClose($file)
EndFunc
Func Form2Close()
exit
EndFunc

I am sure this is probably a simple issue, I am still fairly new to autoit, so any help is appreciated. -Thanks in advance
