Iniwrite question

16 posts in this topic

Hello,

First things first.

I'm making a little program for work so i can keep track of the problems people report to me or when someone lends a specific item.

 

However i encountered a problem(well problem i'm just a newb). The thing i want to do is that i can report multiple subjects to an accdom id(accdom id is the username) so i can look it up and not just 1 subject a person like it works now.(see .ini file to see what i am going for)

[User 1]
Subject=Problem 1
Uitgaven=4
Teruggaven=4

[User 1]
Subject=Problem 2
Uitgaven=1
Teruggaven=4

Altho i don't know if there is a better way to do this. 

The code i have so far is:

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

Global $IAccdomID, $sSubject, $ISubject, $sAccdomID, $CBUit, $sBUit, $CBTerug, $sBTerug

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

Menu()
Func Menu()
$GMenu = GUICreate("Menu", 221, 251, 222, 691)
$BNew = GUICtrlCreateButton("New", 50, 5, 121, 41)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BNew, "new")
$BSearch = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 50, 50, 121, 41)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BSearch, "search")
$BExit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 50, 195, 121, 51)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BExit, "Close")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Close")
EndFunc

Func new()
$GNew = GUICreate("New", 613, 438, 714, 253)
$IAccdomID = GUICtrlCreateInput("Accdom ID", 5, 5, 171, 21)
$ISubject = GUICtrlCreateInput("Subject", 5, 35, 171, 21)
$ENew = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 0, 65, 611, 371)
$BSend = GUICtrlCreateButton("Send", 520, 20, 76, 31)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($BSend, "SendNew")
$CBUit = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Uitgaven", 310, 5, 85, 21)
$CBTerug = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Teruggaven", 310, 35, 85, 21)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "closenew")
EndFunc

Func  SendNew()
$sSubject = GUICtrlRead($ISubject)
$sAccdomID = GUICtrlRead($IAccdomID)
$sBUit = GUICtrlRead($CBUit)
$sBTerug = GUICtrlRead($CBTerug)
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID, "Subject", $sSubject)
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID, "Uitgaven", $sBUit)
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID, "Teruggaven", $sBTerug)
EndFunc

Func search()

EndFunc

Func Close()
   Exit
EndFunc

Func closenew()
   GUISetState(@SW_HIDE)
EndFunc

While 1
    Sleep(50)
WEnd

I hope this is thread is clear and that someone is able to help me.

 

Greetings and have a nice day ^^

If you want to be able to link multiple "tickets" to a single person, the easiest thing to do is a small db. I would highly suggest looking into the _SQLite_ functions in the help file.

 

Edit: Or, don't reinvent the wheel and download one of the many open source ticketing systems, such as Request Tracker, OTRS, Triage, etc.

satanttin,

I would change the ini entries to have all the info on a single line - like this:

[User 1]
Subject 1=A problem|4|1
Subject 2=Another problem|4|1
Subject 3=And another problem|1|1
Subject 4=And here is No 4|4|4
[User 2]
Subject 1=Problem|4|4
You can get this working by changing the SendNew function as follows:

Func SendNew()
    $sSubject = GUICtrlRead($ISubject)
    $sAccdomID = GUICtrlRead($IAccdomID)
    $sBUit = GUICtrlRead($CBUit)
    $sBTerug = GUICtrlRead($CBTerug)
    ; Set initial entry value
    $iNewEntry = 0
    ; Now read exisiting entries
    $aListing = IniReadSection(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID)
    If Not @error Then
        ; Sort to get in order
        _ArraySort($aListing)
        ; Now extract the index of the last entry
        $iNewEntry = StringReplace($aListing[$aListing[0][0]][0], "Subject ", "")
    EndIf
    ; Increase for the next entry
    $iNewEntry += 1
    ; Now write all data for this entry as a new line in the ini - you can easily separate the Uit/Terug values when needed
    IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID, "Subject " & $iNewEntry, $sSubject & "|" & $sBUit & "|" & $sBTerug)
    GUIDelete($GNew)
EndFunc   ;==>SendNew
You will also need to make $GNew Global in scope, and include the Array library. ;)

Please ask if you have any questions. :)

The INI file format and accompanying conventions are not a suitable container for this use case. I second Jlogan3o13 on switching to custom SQLite or to select a full-fledged ticket-processing software.

vikasgoyals, first we don't appreciate hijacking of someone else's thread. If you have a question: create your own post, explain in detail what you're trying to do, be prepared to show what you have tried on your own. As J1 is trying to explain, this is not a forum where you put in a request and someone else does the work for you. We're happy to help you learn, but you need to be willing to do so.

@OP, for the SQLite route, you might try something like this, just to give you an idea of what it would look like:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <SQLite.au3>
#include <SQLite.dll.au3>

Local $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns, $iRval

_SQLite_Startup()
$hMyDB = _SQLite_Open(@DesktopDir & "\my.db")

    _SQLite_Exec($hMyDB, "CREATE TABLE Incidents (Name, Phone Number, Ticket Number, Problem);")
    _SQLite_Exec($hMyDB, "INSERT INTO Incidents VALUES ('Bill Jones','517.222.5555', 'SRC_108907', 'User locked out of network');")
    _SQLite_Exec($hMyDB, "INSERT INTO Incidents VALUES ('Tammy Coleman','517.222.5554', 'SRC_108910', 'User cannot print from Excel');")
    _SQLite_Exec($hMyDB, "INSERT INTO Incidents VALUES ('Bill Jones','517.222.5555', 'SRC_108912', 'User locked out of network - AGAIN');")
    _SQLite_Exec($hMyDB, "INSERT INTO Incidents VALUES ('Bill Jones','517.222.5555', 'SRC_108914', 'User fired');")

$iRval = _SQLite_GetTable2d(-1, "SELECT * FROM Incidents;", $aResult, $iRows, $iColumns)
    If $iRval = $SQLITE_OK Then
        GUICreate("Show my SQLite Data", 500, 300)
        $sListView = GUICtrlCreateListView("Name|Phone Number|Ticket Number|Problem", 10, 10, 480, 280)
            For $i = 1 To UBound($aResult) - 1
                GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($aResult[$i][0] & "|" & $aResult[$i][1] & "|" & $aResult[$i][2] & "|" & $aResult[$i][3], $sListView)
            Next


        GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

            While 1
                Switch GUIGetMsg()
                    Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                        ExitLoop
                EndSwitch
            WEnd

        GUIDelete()

    Else
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error: " & $iRval, _SQLite_ErrMsg())
    EndIf

_SQLite_Close()
_SQLite_Shutdown()

satanttin,

An afterthought was that you may need to use StringFormat to pad the number with leading 0's so the sorting works properly- let me know if you need a hand with that. :)

@JLogan3o13

Thanks i have no clue on how to implent this inside my onevent script but thanks for replaying anyways ^^

@Melba23

i've tried puting your Function in my script but it gives me an error when i try to enter a second entry to a user with just the first entry it works:

"C:\Users\tti007\Desktop\testy.au3" (46) : ==> Unknown function name.:
_ArraySort($aListing)

And tbh i can use a little help with StringFormat since i have no clue on what to do with that :$

satanttin,

Did you include the Array library as I mentioned in my post? :huh:

Put

#include <Array.au3>
at the top of your script and all should be well. ;)

I will look into how we might use StringFormat this afternoon. :)

satanttin,

It was trivial so I did it immediately: :)

Func SendNew()
    $sSubject = GUICtrlRead($ISubject)
    $sAccdomID = GUICtrlRead($IAccdomID)
    $sBUit = GUICtrlRead($CBUit)
    $sBTerug = GUICtrlRead($CBTerug)
    ; Set initial entry value
    $iNewEntry = 0
    ; Now read exisiting entries
    $aListing = IniReadSection(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID)
    If Not @error Then
        ; Sort to get in order
        _ArraySort($aListing)
        ; Now extract the index of the last entry - use Number to strip the leading 0's
        $iNewEntry = Number(StringReplace($aListing[$aListing[0][0]][0], "Subject ", ""))
    EndIf
    ; Increase for the next entry
    $iNewEntry += 1
    ; Now write all data for this entry as a new line in the ini - you can easily separate the Uit/Terug values when needed
    ; Note StringFormat used to pad the number with leading 0's so the sort will work properly
    IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\data.ini", $sAccdomID, "Subject " & StringFormat("%05s", $iNewEntry), $sSubject & "|" & $sBUit & "|" & $sBTerug)
    GUIDelete($GNew)
EndFunc   ;==>SendNew
