Can someone explain to me why this is not working? 

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 95, 100)
    Local $idwrite = GUICtrlCreateButton("write to ini", 5, 40, 85, 25)
    Local $idread = GUICtrlCreateButton("read from ini", 5, 65, 85, 25)
    Local $input = GUICtrlCreateInput("", "5", "10")

    Local $read = IniRead("test.ini", "SECTION", "SAVED", "")

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                ExitLoop

            Case $idwrite
                IniWrite("test.ini", "SECTION", "SAVED", GUICtrlRead($input))
                GUICtrlSetData($input, "")
                MsgBox("", "", "Data now stored in INI file. Press the 'read from ini' button to retrive data.")

                                ;ShellExecute(@ScriptName) ; Starts another instance of the script.
                                ;Exit                      ; Exits the script.

            Case $idread
                GUICtrlSetData($input, "")
                GUICtrlSetData($input, $read)

        EndSwitch
    WEnd

EndFunc   ;==>Example

I can make it work by adding 

ShellExecute(@ScriptName)
Exit

after the MsgBox, but i would hate to settle for that :)

Any ideas?

You're only reading from the INI file at the start of the script, you write to it, but never read it back. The only way it would work is to move the IniRead line into the While loop and after the Case $idread.


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.

It worked! Thank you.

But why didn't it work when i was calling $read from inside the while loop, and under 'Case $idread'?  Nvm :P I think i get it :D Thanks!
