Is it possible , and how can I read and write txt files from Icloud (apple service) ?
Let me try to explain my application.
On my Ipad and Iphone I create txt files. On my windows computer it is possible to read and modify these files manually, by logging in on www.icloud.com.
What I want to make is an auto-it script who reads the txt file and create an new txt file on www.icloud.com, so I can acces these on my ipad and/or phone.
I been using autoit some years ago and needed a tool for changing various in outlook so i found autoit again and i allready succeed in some of this, but i cant find and delete an appointment.
I have found this example and the creation is ok (after i changed $oOL/$oOutlook typo)
But i cant get the delete part to work and i keep on getting "not found" and an empty array (screen shoot of _ArrayDisplay attached)
Please can someone tell me what i am missing, i have been searching and trying various but stil i have no luck in finding any items.
I am using outloook 2013 and office365. I have been able to send mails and create appointment, so i guess my problem is not due to the use off office365.
I am trying to read all the files in a folder, then whatever file is newest, keep only that one and delete the rest.
Example files: (these all have version numbers embedded in them, I dont want to rely on the file name)
What I have so far:
#include <File.au3> RemoveOldFiles() ConsoleWrite(FileGetVersion("C:\WB Resources\FAINT_DONT_LINK_THESE\Faint-v4.0.0.exe") &@CRLF) Func RemoveOldFiles() Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray("C:\WB Resources\FAINT_DONT_LINK_THESE\", "*.exe",$FLTA_FILES) For $i = 0 To UBound($aFileList) - 1 $aFileVersion = FileGetVersion($aFileList[$i]) ConsoleWrite($aFileList[$i] & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite($aFileVersion & @CRLF) Next EndFunc OUTPUT: >Running:(126.96.36.199):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "C:\Users\bot\ownCloud\WellBeats\Delete Old Files\delete-test.au3" --> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop 3 0.0.0.0 a.exe 0.0.0.0 b.exe 0.0.0.0 Faint-v4.0.0.exe 0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 <-- This is the correct file version.... +>07:34:26 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:0 +>07:34:26 AutoIt3Wrapper Finished. >Exit code: 0 Time: 0.6647 Not sure what I am missing here?
This code will read text data from txt file. However, if I use '$Newtext &= $convert' then $convert is saved as strings, not hex value.
For example, if $convert = 0x300020FF and $bNewText = Test then the result is 0x333030303230464654657374. (Wrong)
What I want is 0x300020FF54657374. How can I modify my script?
For $i = $y-1 To Ubound($split) - 1 $convert = "0x" & $split[$i] $Newtext &= $convert $NewLen_hex = BinaryLen ($convert) $i=$i+1 $split[$i] = $split[$i] $split[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($split[$i], "<cf>", @CRLF) $split[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($split[$i], "<lf>", @LF) $split[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($split[$i], "<cr>", @CR) $bNewText = _WinAPI_WideCharToMultiByte($split[$i], $CP_SHIFT_JIS) if $i = Ubound($split) - 1 Then $bNewText &= Chr(0) EndIf $Newtext &= $bNewText $NewLen = $NewLen_hex + BinaryLen ($bNewText) Next (...) (...) $Newfile = BinaryMid($Newfile_header,1) & BinaryMid($Newtext,1) $hNewfile = FileOpen ("NEW_"&$Name, 2+16) FileWrite ($hNewfile, $Newfile) FileClose ($hNewfile) TrayTip ("Importer", "Finish!", 3) sleep (3000)
I have searched and found many posts on READING CSV. What I need to do is WRITE CSV.
Typically I have a Listview, I use @guinness's excellent _GUICtrlListView_CreateArray to read that LV to Array. Currently I use _FileWriteFromArray to write the output. It is fast and it is easy.
The benefits of using these Array functions are their inherit flexibility. The code is portable. Plug it into LV report and you can write to file instantly. No formatting issues.
To be sure, my problem is not with the Listview or Array. My problem is with the file write to CSV: it should be fast, accurate and efficient.
Part of the problem is Microsoft Excel's insistence that my CSVs are not what they appear to be...
I am inspired by the simplicity of SQLITE3.EXE's dot command options:
.headers on .mode csv .once output.csv
Problem is that I want to export the text packed in characters, such as ' " ' with fields delimited by another character, such as ' , '.
Current method using _FileWriteFromArray outputs data like this
12-04-2016| 0.00| 131.00|131|Description 12-04-2016| 0.00| 132.00|132|Description 132 rece 12-04-2016| 998.00| 0.00|998|Description Receipt 12-04-2016| 0.00| 900.00|900|Description What I want to achieve is this:
"12-04-2016"," 0.00"," 131.00","131","Description" "12-04-2016"," 0.00"," 132.00","132","Description 132 rece" "12-04-2016"," 998.00"," 0.00","998","Description Receipt" "12-04-2016"," 0.00"," 900.00","900","Description" I have done this. The long way. I have written the output one $aResult[$i] item at a time, spaced with the $text & $field markers. I have placed this in an array with additional columns just to fit in the formatting. I have also played with the idea of inserting the array into a sqlite db, then run sqlite3's dot commands on that.
Is there a different method? Is there an efficient method to specify FileWriteFromArraytoCSV? Does anyone have ideas? I am sure I will know how to code this, I just need advice on the most efficient way of going about it. If I missed any threads, please enlighten me.
