FileWrite problem when the path is too long....

8 posts in this topic

Hi evrery body ,

I will explain my problem !

I have a part of code like this :

case $Button12
         GuiCtrlSetData($input1,FileOpenDialog("Recherche programme",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)",3))
case $Button13
         GuiCtrlSetData($input2,FileOpenDialog("Recherche programme",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)",3))
case $Button14
         GuiCtrlSetData($input3,FileOpenDialog("Recherche programme",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)",3))
case $Button15
         GuiCtrlSetData($input4,FileOpenDialog("Recherche programme",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)",3))

where I store a path of a file in an input (for a GUI) , even here all work well and all is been displayed,

But a little afar in my code I have a function to save this path in a file like this :

Filewrite($file,"file1path="&GuiCtrlRead($input1))

It's here the problem if the path is like C:xxxxxxfile.exe it's working perfeclty but's if its C:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxfile.exe it's doesnt work my file is blank o_o !

the result depends on the size of the path !!!

i never have this problem before ! and if some people has an idea it's welcome ^^' !!!

Thank you so much !

Ps : sorry for my english in french :-* !

How long is the path name and file name together? Windows has a limit of 260 characters unless you use Unicode paths ("?")


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.

You should probably do something other than trying to read the path out of, what I'm assuming is, an input control. Why not just use the return from FileOpenDialog to set a variable, and use that variable later in the script? That way you know what's in the variable, and the path hasn't been changed by altering the control's contents.

Works For me it

Global $i2

Func _CreateDirs()
For $i = 1 to 10

$i2 &= "1\"

DirCreate(@DesktopDir & "\" & $i2)
Next

Return $i2

EndFunc;_CreateDirs

$sFileFullPath = @DesktopDir & "\" & _CreateDirs()

FileWrite($sFileFullPath & "\AAA.txt", "Hello")

And also works

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("",500,500,-1,-1)
$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,0,500,500,0x01+0x0200)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1,12,"","","Arial",5)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x0000FF)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xFFFFFF)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hLabel
            $sSelectedFile = FileOpenDialog("Select a file",@DesktopDir & "\","All (*.*)",3)
            GUICtrlSetData($hLabel,$sSelectedFile)

    EndSwitch
WEnd
