How To Create A Txt.File And A Folder

23 posts in this topic

I want to create a txt.file and a folder so

I was looking in the help file and I found function: _fileCreate

so I tryed:

#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$sfilepath = ("C:\Users\pc\Desktop")
_FileCreate($sfilepath)

I get an error message: error Creating/resetting log.    error.1

but when I look at the example

it doesnt create a file or a txt.file 

#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

If Not _FileCreate("error.log") Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", " Error Creating/Resetting log.      error:" & @error)
EndIf

If you want to create a folder, you can use DirCreate
For the example in the _FileCreate() help page, it works : the error.log file is created into the helpfile folder under you Autoit directory :

C:Program Files (x86)AutoIt3ExamplesHelpfile

The first example is trying to create a file called Desktop inside the "C:Userspc" folder, it will not create a folder called Desktop, if you want to create this there you NEED to use #RequireAdmin to do it.. Use DirCreate to create a folder. The second example works for me.


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.

The first example is trying to create a file called Desktop inside the "C:Userspc" folder, it will not create a folder called Desktop, 

but if i try this it doesnt wok either

#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$sfilepath = ("C:\Users\pc\Desktop\folder")
_FileCreate($sfilepath)

I get this message:

If you want to create a folder, you can use DirCreate

For the example in the _FileCreate() help page,

When I try to run the _fileCreate example  nothing happens:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    Local $sFldr1 = "C:\Test1\"
    Local $sFldr2 = "C:\Test1\Folder1\"
    Local $sFldr3 = "C:\Test1\Folder1\Folder2\"

    If DirGetSize($sFldr1) <> -1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Directory already exists!")
        Return False
    EndIf

    DirCreate($sFldr3)

    RunWait("explorer /root, C:\Test1\Folder1")
    Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[TITLE:Folder1;CLASS:CabinetWClass]")

    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Explorer is opened with Folder2 displayed.")

    DirRemove($sFldr3, 1)
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The sub folder: Folder2 has been deleted.")

    WinClose($hWnd)

    DirRemove($sFldr2) ;clean up test folders
    DirRemove($sFldr1) ;clean up test folders
EndFunc   ;==>Example

And I dont really understand it, I only want to create a folder and a txt file on my desktop

Keep it simple:

$sfilepath = ("C:\Users\pc\Desktop\folder")
DirCreate($sfilepath)
FileWrite($sfilepath & "\test.txt","Content")

FileWrite($sfilepath & "test,txt","Content")  should be FileWrite($sfilepath & "test.txt","Content")

edit:  When I run the code that you posted I get a file named "test,txt" in the correct folder.  Is this not what you are getting?

I'm running Win7.

I tried that too but  I got nothing, im running windows 8

Why is the path in the script not the exact path you are using?

sorry I dont know what you mean by that im a little bit confussed by this question,

but I just want a text file appear in the desktop  and i also created a map named: folder where the text file needs to be created but nothing happens

Your desktop direcory is: "C:Usersjoesoef pcDesktop" ... correct?

Your script contains: "C:UserspcDesktop"

You sure you're looking in the right dir?  Maybe you should use the @DESKTOPDIR macro.

@Jos - You ever see a file name with a comma in it?  Seems really odd...

You are correct ... I missed that focussing on the directory conflict I saw. ;)

I honestly think it is now time for you to start thinking and reading so you understand what we are telling you in stead of asking the same questions.
