Read url from config file in sequence order

Recommended Posts


I'm new to AutoIT forum, i've done re-search before but still couldn't find any examples which would suit for my small project.

As I mention i'm new to AutoIT forum, so obviously i'm rookie at autoit it self. At the moment i'm trying to create small project for my needs.

What i want to create? Well basically autoit project which opens url from config/txt file with sequence order example first yahoo.com, after google.com so on. In config/txt file will be around 50 urls. I want to merge 2 projects into 1 with some adjustments.

Part 1.

Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
GUICreate("MyProject", 800, 480, "250", "150", $WS_EX_MDICHILD  )
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 1, 1, 800, 480)
$oObject = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "nav-mail")
_IEAction($oObject, "click")

This part working fine, this opens yahoo.com and after clicking email button.

Part 2.

#include <file.au3>
Dim $aSite
If Not _FileReadToArray("Sites.txt",$aSite) Then
MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading file to Array    error:" & @error)
$x = Random(1, $aSite[0], 1)

Part 2 working fine too, but not like i want. This reading url from Sites.txt and starts default browser with one of them randomly. I want to make it not random but from top to bottom sequence.

And also to use for every url.

$oObject = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "nav-mail")
_IEAction($oObject, "click")

I could do in easier way (in worst case) by adding 1 by 1 urls without config/txt file, but then script would be long. Could anyone with higher autoit experience advise me how to get working both parts into one ? 

Best regards

If you don't want it to be random you should remove the random generating code ;)  :

$x = Random(1, $aSite[0], 1)

The way to get them all in order is with a loop through your array:

for $a=0 to ubound($aSite)-1
ShellExecute($aSite[$a]); this could also be navigate instead

Also, if you want advice on merging your code you need to post the entire script.
