PutClip help required

Recommended Posts


I have no idea why this code is not working. When I explicitly put a string into PutClip("adsgasdfgdfgsdf") the script compiles and runs. But when I try to use PutClip with an array a compile time error message is telling me the function is unknown.

I have only written stuff in C# so Autoit is very new to me and I am not used to datatypes being all the same like they are in autoit. Can someone see why this script is not working?

Also, I dont know anything about what is and what is not included in autoit. So I just  try to include everything i can think of lol. Is there some holy grail to include all?

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Clipboard.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <String.au3>


Func Work()
    ; Read the current script file into an array using the filepath.
    Local $arr = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\BOSSMAN\Desktop\originslist.txt")
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "There was an error reading the file. @error: " & @error) ; An error occurred reading the current script file.
        For $i = 0 To UBound($arr) - 1; Loop through the array.
            MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 2482, 359, 1)

Ok, for some reason my script is only partially working. Everything works as planned except for the fact that the array is populated with only parts of my file. I looked through and it just randomly skips some entries. I tried working with the _FileReadToArray method instead of the FIleReadToArray and its confusing and i cant get it to comiple so i am going to stick with FileReadToArray for now.

My text file is delimited by line breaks and looks like this:

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy (ORI #60)
Nissa, Vastwood Seer (ORI #189)
Hangarback Walker
Liliana, Heretical Healer (ORI #106)
Kytheon, Hero of Akros (ORI #23)
Abbot of Keral Keep
Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh (ORI #135)
Archangel of Tithes
Day's Undoing
Exquisite Firecraft
Demonic Pact
Pyromancer's Goggles
Woodland Bellower
Languish (ORI #105)
Erebos's Titan
Starfield of Nyx
Shivan Reef (ORI #251)
Llanowar Wastes (ORI #248)
Alhammarret's Archive
Avaricious Dragon
Caves of Koilos (ORI #245)
Battlefield Forge (ORI #244)
The Great Aurora
Disciple of the Ring
Managorger Hydra
Yavimaya Coast (ORI #252)
Tragic Arrogance
Evolutionary Leap
Goblin Piledriver (ORI #151)
Pia and Kiran Nalaar (ORI #157)
Harbinger of the Tides
Sword of the Animist
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen (ORI #172)
Hallowed Moonlight
Scab-Clan Berserker
Thopter Spy Network
Knight of the White Orchid (ORI #21)
Molten Vortex
Dark Petition
Herald of the Pantheon
Gilt-Leaf Winnower
Vryn Wingmare
Sigil of the Empty Throne (ORI #31)


Anyone know why my script is only picking up some of the elements? Also I dont think it has anything to do with some entries have (OPI # ***), as some of those values post and some dont.

Not sure why you would want to put an array as is on the Clipboard, and then attempt to paste it elsewhere.

If you are just after the text, with included separator character, then just use _ArrayToString command when placing on the clipboard.
