Read text doc and use as script in au3

Recommended Posts

AndroidZero

Hello,

Small desscription what I want to do:

Step1:

I start my reg.au3.

The au3 script must read a text document (code.txt)

and save as a variable

"$text = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "code.txt")"

------------------------------------------------------

Step2:

Inside the "code.txt" is a command "Guictrlcreatebutton("Test",10,90,50,50)" for the au3 scriipt.

The variable $text is now "Guictrlcreatebutton("Test",10,90,50,50)"

-------------------------------------------------------

Step3:

Now I want that the variable starts inside my reg.au3

but how ?

I tryed just write the variable in a line but doesn't works.

Here is the script and the Text Document

Please help :(

AndroidZero,

You cannot do what you want directly. You will have to do one of 2 things:

- 1. Create a new file and run it:

; Define initial lines
$sStart_Lines = '#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>' & @CRLF & _
                'Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)' & @CRLF & _
                '$main_gui = GUICreate("EDV", 281, 300, 500, 200)' & @CRLF & _
                'GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "close_main_gui")' & @CRLF

; Read in new lines
$sAdded_lines = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "\code.txt") & @CRLF

; Define ending lines
$sEnding_Lines = 'WinSetTrans($main_gui, "", 220)' & @CRLF & _
                 'GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF)' & @CRLF & _
                 'GUISwitch($main_gui)' & @CRLF & _
                 'GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)' & @CRLF & _
                 'While 1' & @CRLF & _
                 @TAB & 'Sleep(10)' & @CRLF & _
                 'WEnd' & @CRLF & _
                 'Func close_main_gui()' & @CRLF & _
                 @TAB & 'Exit' & @CRLF & _
                 'EndFunc   ;==>close_main_gui'

; Create file to run
Global $sRun_File = @ScriptDir & "\Runit.au3"
If FileExists($sRun_File) Then
    FileDelete($sRun_File)
EndIf
FileWrite($sRun_File, $sStart_Lines & $sAdded_lines & $sEnding_Lines)

; And then run it
Run('AutoIt3.exe /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & $sRun_File & '"')
- 2. Write code to parse the line you read in and write the code directly:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
$main_gui = GUICreate("EDV", 281, 300, 500, 200)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "close_main_gui")

; Read in new line
$sAdded_lines = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "\code.txt")

; Parse the line
$aSplit_1 = StringSplit($sAdded_lines, "(")
; Confirm type of command
If $aSplit_1[1] = "GUICtrlCreateButton" Then
    ; Parse the parameters
    $aSplit_2 = StringSplit($aSplit_1[2], ",")
    ; Create the control
    GUICtrlCreateButton($aSplit_2[1], Number($aSplit_2[2]), Number($aSplit_2[3]), Number($aSplit_2[4]), Number($aSplit_2[5]))
EndIf

WinSetTrans($main_gui, "", 220)
GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF)
GUISwitch($main_gui)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func close_main_gui()
    Exit
EndFunc
I would strongly recommend using the first of those techniques as the parsing of commands will rapidly become a unmanageable task - imagine having to do it for each AutoIt command listed in the Help file! :o

Please ask if anything is unclear. :)

Could it not be as simple as Execute?

JohnOne,

It works for a single line with no dependencies, but I can see a few problems if that is not the case. ;)

Thank you both !

I will test it first with "execute" because I don't really need to give the GuiCtrl commands a variable.

My plan is that the user can open the reg.au3 with their own configurations.

For example:

-they start the "reg.au3".

-a small gui opens with a combobox

-the combobox read out a (hidden folder) inside the folder are text documents with scripts.

-if he select for example the text document "code.txt" then a the small GUI closes and a new bigger GUI opens with the button "Test"

Of corse the text documents will be much bigger

The reason why I decided for text documents and not directly creating new au3.scrupts in a folder is because the users who will use this reg.au3  - if finished I will convert to exe - don't have autoit installed.

Next step is creating an option maybe in a menubar which allows the user to create an own user-defined gui saved in a text document.

It's is hard to explain so I will post soon my finished script.

I'm sure that this is an usefull script if it is finished.

See you
