FileWriteLog $iFlag and more

3 posts in this topic

Hey fellas,

First Issue:

I have a script that logs certain things. I have a Terminate (exit) function that should log certain variable summaries into the log file before it exits the script. This works fine.

But I cannot for the love of god set it up so the final summary appears at top of the log file even though I use it correctly (checked the forums).

I use:

_FileWriteLog($hFile, $Check & " Checks done", 1)

Despite the " 1 ", the log appears as any other log entry --> at the end of the log file.

 

Second Issue:
Well it is not really an issue but rather a question. Is _FileWriteLog able to create a log file? Let's say everytime I start my script it would create a file called: "$VariableName date and time.txt". Is there a way to do this?

 

Thank you

I can't say for sure, but it appears that if you open the file using FileOpen and using the 1 parameter, append mode, it is setting the file read pointer to the end of the file. Even using FileSetPos to set the pointer to the start of the file won't fix it. The ONLY way to get _FileWriteLog to write to the start of the log file is by using the file's path and name, using a file handle confuses it.


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.

Thanks, that works!
