Is this better to check a variable before you assign it to a value that could be the same?
local $EmptyLog = false func WriteLog($text) _guictrledit_appendtext($log, ($EmptyLog ? @CRLF : $empty) & $text) If $EmptyLog Then $EmptyLog = False endfunc or does AutoIt behind the scenes already check this?
i guess overwriting memory with the same value over and over again is not good if you can prevent this with a check?
I see $hWnd used as a local variable in a lot of script examples. I know the 'h' is used for handles, but what is the 'Wnd' short for?
i have seen many pointing out issues related to this, i tried reading through them - still unable to solve mine.. i have a script which reads certain lines based on a search item, this is an iterative process - the ldflst_file gets updated for each iteration and the script finds the line number which has the search item. this works perfectly for few iterations, but stops in some cases abruptly with the error =
Subscript used on non-accessible variable $aRead^ ERROR I have verified that the search item is present in the file. what could be the reason for this code to stop in certain cases. thanks for help
my code below (partial).. full code is in attachment
global $ldflst_var1=" JOINT LOAD FORCE(X) FORCE(Y) FORCE(Z) MOMENT(X) MOMENT(Y) MOMENT(Z)"
for $i= 0 to $ldflst_totlines ; ldflst_totlines is total number of lines in the file 'ldflst_file'
if $aRead[$i]=$ldflst_var1 Then
I have a script that takes a large excel file, pulls out and reorganizes certain information I need, and spits out a trimmed down csv file which I uses to upload the information on my website. Some of this information contains characters with accents or em dashes. By default it would create a csv file in ANSI which I then uploaded but had to tell my website import system it was windows-1252 in order for it to look correct.
This was all working fine except now I need to add in a non-breaking space and non-breaking hyphen into parts of my output. At first I tried using ChrW(0xA0) and ChrW(0x2011) as replacements. A quick test in the console looked correct, however opening the csv output in notepad++ showed the space correctly but a ? for the hyphen and the file was still encoded as ANSI. I tried to view it as UTF-8 instead but this just made the space appear as xAO and also other characters appeared that way like my em dashes appeared as x97 and another symbol as xA7 etc.
If I instead do a convert to UTF-8 from notepad++ then those problems go away except the hyphen still displays as ?. I then noticed on the page I linked for the non-breaking hyphen it lists the UTF-8 hex as 0xE2 0x80 0x91 (e28091). I was unsure how to enter this in autoit but several things i tried all failed to get the hyphen inserted.
I need a way to get both the space and hyphen added correctly as either ANSI or UTF-8, but if it is UTF-8 then I need a way to convert all of the other data I extracted from the excel file.
I've included a test excel file with a single line and test script to create a csv demonstrating the problem.
Hello, i'm trying to rename a variable to another variable name (not the value attached to the variable). This would save me TONS of coding.
Here is an example:
Local $clear1="$SATJ" ;sets the $clear1 variable to become $SATJ
GUICtrlSetState($clear1 & "3", $GUI_UNCHECKED) ;i want this to come out to be $SATJ3, it should look something like - GUICtrlSetState($SATJ3, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
I've already tried
any help is greatly appreciated!!!
