List and count variable(s) from autoit script to text(Like Autoit Debugger Variables window)

Recommended Posts


To everyone,

The following script will help you count variable within autoit script file (.au3) and list them to a text file. The output list is similar to the varible windows in autoit debugger.

If @error Then Exit

;create variable list file
$oFile= StringTrimRight($Source, 4) & "_VarRename.txt"

;Read script file
_FileReadToArray($Source, $lines)

;open variable list


You may comment out the last line to print your list directly to a default printer.

Hmmm, you don't need to the use registry for this. Also this will display as a variable...

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "This is not a $variable")

I have code floating around the forum which does exactly this. It's quicker, correct and doesn't use the registry for keeping the count.
