Any simple way to get a SINGLE value from XML file?

13 posts in this topic

Okay, I'm still a relative newbie, and I just spent about 18 hours learning and coding up and debugging my very first AutoIt GUI from scratch (with two simultaneously active windows, too)! :sweating:

So I hope you'll understand that I'm too fatigued to try and learn the particularly complex subject of the XML DOM wrapper UDF and all the associated processing in AutoIt just now. :   Especially since all I need (and all I may ever need) is to obtain just a single value ("<SaveMovieTo>") from a local XML file!  Here are the contents of the XML file in question:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Configuration>
    <MajorVersion>1</MajorVersion>
    <SubVersion>1</SubVersion>
    <General>
        <Language>0x0409</Language>
        <AppCurrentMode>0x0001</AppCurrentMode>
        <RunAtStartup>0</RunAtStartup>
        <SaveMovieTo>X:\Storage Folder</SaveMovieTo>
        <Transparency>0.855000</Transparency>
        <Profile>
        </Profile>
        <Skin>std</Skin>
        <Device>
        </Device>
        <StandbyOSD>0</StandbyOSD>
        <CaptureOSD>1</CaptureOSD>
        <SnapshotOSD>1</SnapshotOSD>
        <DiskOSD>1</DiskOSD>
        <StreamOSD>1</StreamOSD>
        <MicOSD>1</MicOSD>
        <TimeShiftMode>0</TimeShiftMode>
        <PreviewMute>0</PreviewMute>
    </General>
    <Stream>
        <ActiveService>
        </ActiveService>
    </Stream>
</Configuration>

I tried -- I really tried -- to read about the XML DOM wrapper UDF and how to use it, but I go so lost and confused that it looks like it would take a week or two to comprehend.  Would anyone be so kind as to just show me the code to get the "<SaveMovieTo>" value?  I'd very much appreciate it!

check these out:

FileRead()

_StringBetween()

the first one will read your file to a string; any of the other two will help you figure out what's in between the XML tags you are interested in.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to

So far, the Universe is winning.

In this case (where SaveMovieTo appears just one time), you can simply extract the value with a _StringBetween() or a RegExp.

Local $SaveMovieTo = StringRegExpReplace($sXML, "(?is).+<SaveMovieTo>(.*?)</SaveMovieTo>.+", "$1")
ConsoleWrite($SaveMovieTo)

It is my way.

very simple, maybe somone else have another more simple.

#include <Process.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>



  ; Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath.
    Local Const $sFile = "C:\savemovie\savemovie.xml"

    ;if you know the line and never change it´s more simple
    $sLine=FileReadLine($sFile, 9)
    $sSearch=_StringBetween($sLine,"<SaveMovieTo>","</SaveMovieTo>")
    $sResult=_ArrayToString($sSearch,"")
    MsgBox(0,"",$sResult)

maybe this one help you.

or it´s the same with FileRead to read all the file instead a single line.

; Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath.
    Local Const $sFile = "C:\savemovie\savemovie.xml"

    ;Read all the file 
    $sLine=FileRead($sFile)
    $sSearch=_StringBetween($sLine,"<SaveMovieTo>","</SaveMovieTo>")
    $sResult=_ArrayToString($sSearch,"")
    MsgBox(0,"",$sResult)

Thanks, orbs.  I was thinking of doing something basic like that, but I wanted to wait to see other options...

      Hi. I'm trying to write a xml. Here is my code:

      I was asking @eltorro serveral times for any support  for XML DOM wrapper (COM) - with no success  
          So I took matters into my hands ..... I want to present XMLWrapperEx.au3 - BETA Version
      Want to join to the project ?
       
      Here is some description:
      ; #INDEX# ======================================================================================================================= ; Title .........: XMLWrapperEx.au3 ; AutoIt Version : 3.3.10.2++ ; Language ......: English ; Description ...: Functions to use for reading and writing XML using msxml. ; Remarks .......: BETA Version ; Author ........: mLipok ; Version .......: "1.1.1.01" ; _XML_MiscProperty_UDFVersion() #CS This UDF is created on the basis of: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/19848-xml-dom-wrapper-com/ For this reason, I attach also the last known (to me) previous version ($_XMLUDFVER = "1.0.3.98" _XMLDomWrapper_1.0.3.98_CN.au3 ) For the same reason I continue to recognize the achievements of the work of my predecessors (they are still noted in each Function header). . . . . !!!!!!!!! This is BETA VERSION (all could be changed) !!!!!!!!! . . . WORK IN PROGRES INFORMATION: For now 2015-09-01 the descripion (Function Header) can not entirely correctly describe the function. TODO: in many places I used "TODO" as a keyword to find what should be done in future . I want to: PREVENT THIS: The unfortunate nature of both the scripts is that the func return results are strings or arrays instead of objects. .     I want to: USE THIS CONCEPT:     .   All function should use Refernce to the object as first Function parameter     .   All function should return in most cases objects. There should be separate functions to Change Object collection to array     .   All function should use COM Error Handler in local scope.     .   All function should return @error which are defined in #Region XMLWrapperEx.au3 - @ERROR Enums     .    All function should have the same naming convention     .    All variables should have the same naming convention     .    There should not to be any Global Variable - exception is $g__oXMLDOM_Events     .   It should be possible easy to use XML DOM Events     .        https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms764697(v=vs.85).aspx     .   It should be possible easy to Debug     .    Ultimately, you should be able to do anything with your XML without having to use your own Error Handler. #CE

      This UDF was formerly named:   XMLWrapperEx.au3

      Hi Guys, 
      Since I'm able to get a Dell equipment warranty status thanks to my API key, I'm using an UDF to extract data from an XML file and get the end date. > 
      Thing is, when using InetGet, the original file is in JSON format and the UDF is not working anymore, even if I download the file with the xml extension. Therefore, and when I manually download the page with Chrome, I have a proper XML file where the UDF is working fine.
      Here's my code:
      I even tried to convert the json to xml > https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/185717-js-json-to-xml/
      I took a look here https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/104150-json-udf-library-fully-rfc4627-compliant/ but I don't understand anything :/
       
      The XML read UDF is just perfect for my needs but I'm stuck here... 
      Thanks for any help you can provide

      Alright, this is going to be a rather long explanation so bear with me.
      What I am trying to to is build a GUI program that, in the end, will look like this:
      The middle Frame is for displaying a desktop icon and the right frame is for displaying a selected image.
      The XML file I am using looks like this:
      <list> <item id="1"> <ico>Path\to\icon1<\ico> <img>Path\to\image1<\img> <exe>Path\to\program1<\exe> <label>UserDefinedLabel1<\label> <\item> <item id="2"> <ico>Path\to\icon2<\ico> <img>Path\to\image2<\img> <exe>Path\to\program2<\exe> <label>UserDefinedLabel2<\label> <\item> <\list> What I want this program to do is when I highlight an item in the listbox (which btw is displaying the <label> value associated with the item) I want the displayed icon and image to change to the ones associated with that entry. 
      Also I would like to include an additional dialog to open when the 'ADD' button is clicked that will add entries to the XML file that looks like this:

       
      The main problem I am running into is that I do not know much about XML and how to parse it into dynamic variables that can change based off of selection.
      Any help is appreciated.
