Problem with a string (Very simple problem)

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I can understand why this:

MsgBox(0, "", @AppDataDir & '\.minecraft\saves' & $myVar & '.ext')

Is returning C:UsersDamonAppDataRoaming.minecraftsavesC:UsersDamonAppDataRoaming.minecraftsavesvariable here.ext

$myVar = "variable here"

I want C:UsersDamonAppDataRoaming.minecraftsavesvariable here.ext

it does not return that, post your whole script

$myVar = "Variable Here"

MsgBox(0, "", @AppDataDir & '\.minecraft\saves\' & $myVar & '.ext')

Isn't minecraft a game?

I believe my children play it.

Consider yourself on the naughty list  :naughty: .


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

      Good morning
      I was trying to replace 2 identical characters from a string, but I didn't manage to with StringReplace()...
      Does anyone know how to replace two ( i.e. : """" with ";" ) ? 
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I want to click a link by the element ID through IEGetObjById.
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <button type="button" id="Random-1-ID" onclick="alert('Hello world!')"></button> </body> </html> I intend to click the button with ID"Random-1-ID". But on every refresh the ID changes to next number like "Random-2-ID" "Random-3-ID"
       
      The code i which i wrote for this function is
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("I:\Documents\1. Work\Automation\My codes\Collections\11. Clicking button by Value and ID\button.html") Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Random-1-ID") _IEAction($oDiv, "click") _IELoadWait($oIE) So can anyone help me to alter this code like it clicks for every ID in format "Random-%-ID"

      I'm having a weird issue with an invisible character (specifically: '?' mark) appearing in my CSV when my script reads it. I've isolated it down to a simple script so I can share it easily.
      Has anyone experienced this issue?
      How would I be able to detect/remove invisible characters?
      For this specific case FileExist would fail. I could do StringReplace or StringRegExp, but what if it's not a '?' mark or a unc path?
      Note: I can see the question mark if I open the CSV in notepad, but not in Excel.
       
      Code:
      $sPath1 = "\\Server\Share\Folder1‎" ; Copied from Excel 2013 $sPath2 = "\\Server\Share\Folder1" ; Typed out in SciTE ConsoleWrite(@CRLF) ConsoleWrite($sPath1 & @TAB & StringLen($sPath1)) ConsoleWrite(@CRLF) ConsoleWrite($sPath2 & @TAB & StringLen($sPath2)) ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & @CRLF) Screenshot:

      Script:
      Path_Test.au3
       
      Any assistance is appreciated, Thanks!

      Hi everybody.
      Could you tell me is there any UDF that can help to highlight syntax in the _GUICtrlRichEdit element on the fly?
      Is it possible to implement this feature in script in simple way using some UDF or something, instead of writing thousand of strings manually?
      Thanks in advance.

      Much work still needs to be done on my current project, but design concepts often benefit more from early criticism. Although there may be nothing particularly innovative about this project, user experience is everything. I would like you to look at the behaviour of the controls on this GUI. Unless you type something really awful, it allows you to finish typing the formula before testing the input. When typing into an edit control, pressing the enter key activates the okay button.
      The program itself, mainly consists of a listview control, which you can't see - just imagine it looks like a stone age version of Excel with a nice paint job, but no bells or whistles. What Row Sum (Σ) is intended to do is loop through all the rows, calculate a sum and print the output in a newly created column. The user is prompted to type a formula into the following GUI. Please try to figure it out, and break it any way you can.
      #include <GUIConstants.au3> #include <GuiEdit.au3> #include <Misc.au3> Global $g_iAvailableCols = 24 ; arbitary dev variable [column count will eventually be read from a listview control] ; missing several thousand lines of code... Formula() ; caution about including columns containing empty fields in the formula ; empty fields are treated as zero ; with addition and subtraction there is never any problem ; multiplication by an empty field (or by zero) returns zero ; division by an empty field (or by zero) returns an empty field [unless - see exception] ; use of the power operator is limited to rows in which all referenced fields contain numbers ; imaginary roots of negative numbers return an empty field [unless - see exception] ; exception: infinity (or an imaginary number) to the power of zero returns a meaningless number Func FormulaSyntax() MsgBox(BitOR(64, 8192), "Row Sum (" & ChrW(0x03A3) & ") : Syntax To Use", _ ; $MB_ICONINFORMATION, $MB_TASKMODAL " mathematical operators :" & @TAB & "+ - * / ^" & @CRLF & _ " column numbers :" & @TAB & @TAB & "c1, c2, c3 etc..." & @CRLF & _ " decimal digits :" & @TAB & @TAB & "0 to 9 and ." & @CRLF & _ " parenthesis :" & @TAB & @TAB & "( )" & @CRLF & _ " minus sign :" & @TAB & @TAB & "-1, -c2, -(c3) etc..." & @CRLF & _ " example :" & @TAB & @TAB & @TAB & "c1 +c2 -c3") EndFunc ;==> FormulaSyntax Func Formula() ; ($hParent, $idListView, $hListView) ; [missing parent window] Local $sTitle = "Row Sum (" & ChrW(0x03A3) & ")", _ $iStyle = BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_POPUP, $WS_SYSMENU), _ $iExStyle = BitOR($WS_EX_MDICHILD, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST) Local $hChild = GUICreate($sTitle, 334 +25, 105 +1, Default + 100, Default + 100); , $iStyle, $iExStyle, $hParent) Local $hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Formula :", 8, 8, 55, 18) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10) Local $hSyntax = GUICtrlCreateButton("???", 72, 7, 40, 20) Local $hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Header :", 127, 8, 49, 18) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10) Local $hHeader = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 182, 7, 170, 20) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10) Local $hInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 7, 33, 320 +25, 40, BitOR($WS_TABSTOP, $ES_MULTILINE)) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10) Local $hCheckBox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox(" Round to", 7, 79, 75, 20) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10) Local $hPlaces = GUICtrlCreateInput("2", 86, 79 +1, 20, 20, BitOR($WS_TABSTOP, $ES_CENTER, $ES_NUMBER)) GUICtrlCreateLabel("decimal places", 114 -2, 79 +2, 92, 18) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10) Local $hCancel = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 210, 79 +1, 66, 20) Local $hOkay = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 285, 79 +1, 66, 20) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $sInput = "", $aArray, $iError = 0, $iCols = $g_iAvailableCols ; $iCols = _GUICtrlListView_GetColumnCount($hListView), _ ; >>> CHANGE THIS LATER ;$iRows = _GUICtrlListView_GetItemCount($hListView), $aColOrder = _GUICtrlListView_GetColumnOrderArray($hListView) Local $vTemp, $msg2, $iPlaces = '2' While 1 $msg2 = GUIGetMsg() If $msg2 = $hCancel Or $msg2 = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop If $msg2 = $hSyntax Then FormulaSyntax() ContinueLoop EndIf $vTemp = GUICtrlRead($hPlaces) If $vTemp <> $iPlaces Then If $vTemp > 14 Then GUICtrlSetData($hPlaces, 14) $iPlaces = 14 _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hPlaces, 0, -1) ElseIf Not $vTemp Then GUICtrlSetData($hPlaces ,'0') $iPlaces = '0' _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($hPlaces, 0, -1) EndIf EndIf If BitAND(GUICtrlRead($hCheckBox), $GUI_CHECKED) == $GUI_CHECKED _ And BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($hPlaces), $GUI_DISABLE) == $GUI_DISABLE Then GUICtrlSetState($hPlaces, $GUI_ENABLE) ElseIf BitAND(GUICtrlRead($hCheckBox), $GUI_CHECKED) <> $GUI_CHECKED _ And BitAND(GUICtrlGetState($hPlaces), $GUI_ENABLE) == $GUI_ENABLE Then GUICtrlSetState($hPlaces, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf $sFormula = GUICtrlRead($hInput) If $sFormula <> $sInput Then If StringRegExp($sFormula, '[^ ]') Then ; spaces between components are ignored If Not ValidSyntax($sFormula, $iCols) Then If @extended < 5 Then If $iError = 0 Then GUICtrlSetBkColor($hInput, 0xFFA090) $iError = 1 ElseIf $iError Then GUICtrlSetBkColor($hInput, 0xFFFFFF) $iError = 0 EndIf ElseIf $iError Then GUICtrlSetBkColor($hInput, 0xFFFFFF) $iError = 0 EndIf ElseIf $iError Then GUICtrlSetBkColor($hInput, 0xFFFFFF) $iError = 0 EndIf $sInput = $sFormula EndIf ; BitAND(WinGetState($hChild), $WIN_STATE_ACTIVE) = 8 If $msg2 = $hOkay Or (_IsPressed("0D") And BitAND(WinGetState($hChild), 8) = 8 And (ControlGetFocus($hChild) = "Edit2" Or ControlGetFocus($hChild) = "Edit1")) Then $sFormula = GUICtrlRead($hInput) ; If StringRegExp($sFormula, '[^ ]') And ValidSyntax($sFormula, $iCols) Then ; missing formula execution code MsgBox(0, "VALID SYNTAX", "Well done, your formula can safely be executed, but" & @CRLF & "can't find parent window.")
