GUI that looks in an ini for a dynamic key, if finds it, it shows the sections the key is found in in drop-down. How can I do this? Thanks!

I'm trying to make a program that reads an ini for the key: Name then displays info about that section. When a user logs in, their name is assigned to the variable $user, which is also equal to the key: Name. How can I do this? This was a bit of code which has the idea im looking for from another dedicated user. Thx

Example: User's name is April, they log in and press the shortcut for this program. It loads and then shows a drop down box of the pages they have (it looks in each section to see if their $user is in a key called Name. If it finds it, it shows it in the drop down). Then they select their page, click open and it opens the page W:\01-02.indd ('page'.indd)

; please place the location of the ini file here

Dim $Location = "my.ini"

Dim $Sec_data

#include "GUIConstants.au3"

If Not FileExists( $Location) Then

MsgBox(0,"Sorry"," the ini file was not found ")

Exit

EndIf

Call("Read_Sections")

$PT_win = GuiCreate(" My Ladder, by QTasc", 240,120)

$button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("A&ccept", 20, 80, 60, 23)

GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DEFBUTTON)

$button_2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("C&ancel", 160, 80, 60, 23)

;Create 1 combo box, give focus and populate with contents

$combo_1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo( "", 53, 43, 123, 20)

GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_FOCUS)

GUICtrlSetData(-1,$Sec_data)

;GUICtrlSetFont( -1, 9, 550)

$label_1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel( "Please Choose a File", 20, 15, 250, 20)

GUICtrlSetFont( -1, 10, 600)

GuiSetState (@SW_SHOW)

While 1

$LSmsg = GuiGetMsg()

Select

case $LSmsg = $button_2 Or $LSmsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

Exit

case $LSmsg = $button_1

$LSID = GuictrlRead($combo_1)

If $LSID = "" Then

MsgBox(64, "Error", "No File Chosen")

EndIf

If $LSID > "" Then

Call("Read_ini")

EndIf

EndSelect

WEnd

;---------------------- functions ---------------------------

Func Read_Sections()

Local $t = 1

$Sections = IniReadSectionNames($Location)

for $t = 1 to $Sections[0]If @error then ExitLoop

$Sec_data = $Sec_data & $Sections[$t] & "|"

Next

EndFunc

Func Read_ini()

$var = IniReadSection($Location, $LSID)

If @error Then

MsgBox(4096, "", "Error occured, probably no INI file.")

Else

For $i = 1 To $var[0][0]

MsgBox(4096, "", $var[$i][0] & @CRLF & $var[$i][1])

Next

EndIf

EndFunc

my.ini example:

[02-03]Name=April

Page=02-03

Topic=Dogs

UserStatus=Completed

Due=11/11/05

Section=Student Life

EditStatus=NotChecked

[03-04]

Name=Laura

Page=03-04

Topic=Cars

UserStatus=Completed

Due=11/11/05

Section=Student Life

EditStatus=NotChecked

[04-05]

Name=Jake

Page=04-05

Topic=Math

UserStatus=Incomplete

Due=12/11/05

Section=Academics

EditStatus=NotChecked

[06-07]

Name=April

Page=06-07

Topic=Science

UserStatus=Incomplete

Due=12/11/05

Section=Academics

EditStatus=NotChecked

Example, if April logs in, and $user is April, it checks sections with the Key: April and displays the sections its found in. So 02-03 and 06-07 will be shown in the drop-down. Then they can select it and click open to open it. Edited by CrewXp
