List box and INIWrite

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello every one!

I seemed to hit a snag and am in need of your sage advice :)

I am trying to write to a .ini file on information that is generated within the in Listbox. In my efforts, I was able to only get the last line to write to the .ini file. Any help would be greatly appreciate !

#include <AVIConstants.au3>
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <TreeViewConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiMenu.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>


$parentgui=GUICreate("EPM Tools - By Michael Lewis", 400, 420)
         GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
         GUISwitch($parentgui)

         $iButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Encounter # Copy", 20, 50, 185, 22)
         $iButton11 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Save", 250,310,40,22)
         $iInput = GUICtrlCreateList ("", 250,2,140,300 ) ;Encounter input
While 1
    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()

Switch $iMsg
     GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
         Case $iButton2 ;Encounter Copier Button

         GUICtrlSetData ($iInput, "Information1")
         GUICtrlSetData ($iInput, "Information2")
         GUICtrlSetData ($iInput, "Information3")

      Case $iButton11 ;SAVE
         $inputread= GUICtrlRead($iInput)
         IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "/encounters.ini","Encounters","Input1",$inputread)
         MsgBox (0,"File Saved!","File Saved!")

          GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

         Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit

EndSwitch
WEnd

The problem is that you didn't read the help file closely enough. :)

When using GUICtrlRead on a listbox it states:

 

Combo, List  The value selected


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.

mlewis42,

Try it like this...

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


$parentgui = GUICreate("EPM Tools - By Michael Lewis", 400, 420)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUISwitch($parentgui)

$iButton2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Encounter # Copy", 20, 50, 185, 22)
$iButton11 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 250, 310, 40, 22)
$iInput = GUICtrlCreateList("", 250, 2, 140, 300) ;Encounter input

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $iMsg = GUIGetMsg()

    Switch $iMsg
        ;GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)                          ; not needed in this loop - moved to after controls are defined
        Case $iButton2 ;Encounter Copier Button

            GUICtrlSetData($iInput, "Information1")
            GUICtrlSetData($iInput, "Information2")
            GUICtrlSetData($iInput, "Information3")

        Case $iButton11 ;SAVE
            for $1 = 0 to _GUICtrlListBox_GetCount($iInput) - 1                                     ; 0 based count of items
                $inputread = _GUICtrlListBox_Gettext($iInput, $1)                                   ; item text
                IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "/encounters.ini", "Encounters", "Input" & $1+1, $inputread)  ; keys must be unique
            next
            MsgBox(0, "File Saved!", "File Saved!")

            ;GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

Before you get too much further into using an INI file, note, each key must be unique, otherwise you will be writing over an existing key without realizing that you are.

You should give much thought to data structure before trying to use an ini file in this way.

edit: This looks like you might be starting down the road of problem ticket tracking.  Search for others that have tried this to get more info...
