First find text, Then do this

Hi guys

I have 3 txt files, and the script searches them, to find the txt file containing my username.
If found in one of the txt files, an msgbox will tell which txtfile my username was found in. Works fine.

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $Text[3] ;If changed, remember to change multiple places in the script.

$Text[0] = ("01_TextFile")
$Text[1] = ("02_TextFile")
$Text[2] = ("03_TextFile")

Global $DirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"

$username = @UserName    ;pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/




; SCRIPT START

 For $i = 0 to 3 - 1

$TextFile = FileOpen($DirforTxtFiles & $Text[$i] & ".txt", 0)
$ReadText = FileRead($TextFile)
FileClose($TextFile)


If StringRegExp($ReadText, $username) Then


Call("MainScript")



EndIf


Next




Func MainScript()

MsgBox(0,"USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $Text[$i])

EndFunc

 

 

But now I want the script to do something else, if my username is NOT found in any of the txtfiles
The following example below here doesn't work, since the Else statement is placed inside the For loop, So it will run the Else statement, every time the StringRegExp doesn't find my username in a txtfile.

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $Text[3] ;If changed, remember to change multiple places in the script.

$Text[0] = ("01_TextFile")
$Text[1] = ("02_TextFile")
$Text[2] = ("03_TextFile")

Global $DirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"

$username = @UserName    ;pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/




; SCRIPT START

 For $i = 0 to 3 - 1

$TextFile = FileOpen($DirforTxtFiles & $Text[$i] & ".txt", 0)
$ReadText = FileRead($TextFile)
FileClose($TextFile)


If StringRegExp($ReadText, $username) Then


Call("MainScript")


Else
Call("NotInTextFile")


EndIf


Next






Func MainScript()

MsgBox(0,"USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $Text[$i])

EndFunc





;\/___________________________________________________________________________\/
Func NotInTextFile()

MsgBox(0,"", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE")

EndFunc

 

What it SHOULD do, is search the txtfiles for my username, and then when all the searching is done, it should react based on the search result.

The answer might be quite obvious, but I'm stuck at this point.

 

Any ideas would be much appreciated :)

I would try something like this:

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $aText[] = ["01_TextFile", "02_TextFile", "03_TextFile"]
Global $sDirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"
$sUsername = @UserName ; Pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

; SCRIPT START
For $i = 0 To UBound($aText) - 1
    $hTextFile = FileOpen($sDirforTxtFiles & $aText[$i] & ".txt", 0)
    $sReadText = FileRead($hTextFile)
    FileClose($hTextFile)
    If StringRegExp($sReadText, $sUsername) Then
        MainScript()
    Else
        NotInTextFile()
    EndIf
Next

Func MainScript()
EndFunc   ;==>MainScript

Func NotInTextFile()
EndFunc   ;==>NotInTextFile

Hi water

Thanks for your time!
I'm afraid that your example gives the same result.
Say my username is found in 03_Textfile.txt, the 2 first searches gives me the Else function, and then the if function
So in your example I get the MsgBox(0,"", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE") 2 times before the MsgBox(0,"USER FOUND"...

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $aText[] = ["01_TextFile", "02_TextFile", "03_TextFile"]
Global $sDirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"
$sUsername = @UserName ; Pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

; SCRIPT START
For $i = 0 To UBound($aText) - 1
    $hTextFile = FileOpen($sDirforTxtFiles & $aText[$i] & ".txt", 0)
    $sReadText = FileRead($hTextFile)
    FileClose($hTextFile)
    If StringRegExp($sReadText, $sUsername) Then
        MainScript()
    Else
        NotInTextFile()
    EndIf
Next

Func MainScript()
   MsgBox(0,"USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $aText[$i])
EndFunc   ;==>MainScript

Func NotInTextFile()
   MsgBox(0,"", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE")
EndFunc   ;==>NotInTextFile

Then I would set a flag and call the Not-Found-Function after all files have been checked:

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $aText[] = ["01_TextFile", "02_TextFile", "03_TextFile"]
Global $sDirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"
Global $bFound = False
$sUsername = @UserName ; Pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

; SCRIPT START
For $i = 0 To UBound($aText) - 1
    $hTextFile = FileOpen($sDirforTxtFiles & $aText[$i] & ".txt", 0)
    $sReadText = FileRead($hTextFile)
    FileClose($hTextFile)
    If StringRegExp($sReadText, $sUsername) Then
        $bFound = True
        MainScript()
    EndIf
Next
If $bFound = False Then NotInTextFile()

Func MainScript()
    MsgBox(0, "USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $aText[$i])
EndFunc   ;==>MainScript

Func NotInTextFile()
    MsgBox(0, "", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE")
EndFunc   ;==>NotInTextFile

Exactly what I was searching for. The flag did the trick.
Thanks water!

Another question: If the script finds the username in more than one file do you want to get the MsgBox multiple times?

Actually if that is the case, I should still get the MsgBox multiple times yes, but after that it should call a new function ONCE, based on how many times my username is found.
So the script itself must be aware that my username has been found more than once, and react from it. Is that possible also with flags?

Thanks! :)

Global $aText[] = ["01_TextFile", "02_TextFile", "03_TextFile"]

    FileClose($hTextFile)
    If StringRegExp($sReadText, $sUsername) Then
        $bFound = True
        MainScript()
    EndIf
Next
If $bFound = False Then NotInTextFile()

Func MainScript()
    MsgBox(0, "USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $aText[$i])
    ;If username only found once, do THIS <----------------------------------------------------
    ;If username found more than once, do THAT <-----------------------------------------------
EndFunc   ;==>MainScript

Func NotInTextFile()
    MsgBox(0, "", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE")
EndFunc   ;==>NotInTextFile

In this case you need a counter:

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $aText[] = ["01_TextFile", "02_TextFile", "03_TextFile"]
Global $sDirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"
Global $iFound = 0
$sUsername = @UserName ; Pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

; SCRIPT START
For $i = 0 To UBound($aText) - 1
    $hTextFile = FileOpen($sDirforTxtFiles & $aText[$i] & ".txt", 0)
    $sReadText = FileRead($hTextFile)
    FileClose($hTextFile)
    If StringRegExp($sReadText, $sUsername) Then
        $iFound = $iFound + 1
        MainScript()
    EndIf
Next
If $iFound = 0 Then NotInTextFile()
If $iFound > 1 Then FoundMultipleTimes()

Func MainScript()
    MsgBox(0, "USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $aText[$i])
EndFunc   ;==>MainScript

Func NotInTextFile()
    MsgBox(0, "", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE")
EndFunc   ;==>NotInTextFile

Func FoundMultipleTimes()
    MsgBox(0, "", "USER FOUND MULTIPLE TIMES")
EndFunc   ;==>FoundMultipleTimes

Of course! So $iFound = $iFound + 1 adds 1 to the counter every time there is a match, and If $iFound > 1 Then FoundMultipleTimes() determines if that counter is larger than 1, then we have multiple hits.

So logical, so nice :)

water you're the best, thanks!

Another enhancement could be to do the processing in two steps.

  1. Determine how many files contain the username
  2. Process the files depending on how many files have been found.
    2.1 No files
    2.2. One file
    2.3 Multiple files

Yeah you are correct. In the actual setup where there is up to 20 txt files, the current looping process is a bit heavy and clumsy :/

I suggest something like this:

;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
Global $aText[] = ["01_TextFile", "02_TextFile", "03_TextFile"]
Global $aFound[UBound($aText)] ; Table with a flag (True) for each found file
Global $iFound = 0 ; Counter for found files
Global $sDirforTxtFiles = "C:\Temp\"
$sUsername = @UserName ; Pulls username that is logged in
;\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

; SCRIPT START
For $i = 0 To UBound($aText) - 1
    $hTextFile = FileOpen($sDirforTxtFiles & $aText[$i] & ".txt", 0)
    $sReadText = FileRead($hTextFile)
    FileClose($hTextFile)
    If StringRegExp($sReadText, $sUsername) Then
        $iFound = $iFound + 1 ; Update counter
        $aFound[$i] = True ; Set found flag for this file
    EndIf
Next
If $iFound = 0 Then FoundNone() ; No file found
If $iFound = 1 Then FoundOne()  ; One file found  
If $iFound > 1 Then FoundMany() ; More than one file foun

Func FoundNone()
    MsgBox(0, "", "USER NOT IN ANY TEXTFILE")
EndFunc   ;==>FoundNone

Func FoundOne()
    MsgBox(0, "USER FOUND", "In following textfile: " & $aText[$i])
EndFunc   ;==>FoundOne

Func FoundMany()
    Local $sFoundFiles
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aFound) - 1
        If $aFound[$i] = True Then $sFoundFiles = $sFoundFiles & $aText[$i] & @CRLF
    Next
    MsgBox(0, "", "USER FOUND IN " & $iFound & " FILES:" & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sFoundFiles)
EndFunc   ;==>FoundMany

Hi water

I just rewrote the entire script based on your example above. It's a lot more complicated in the actual script, but finally got it working.. phew!

Once again, thanks for all your guidance!

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches. Each input array must be unique (individually) and in alphabetical order. Func ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) Local $sFind, _ $iMin_F = -1, $iMax_F = UBound($aFoo) -1, $Lo_F = $iMin_F, $Hi_F, _ $iMin_B = -1, $iMax_B = UBound($aBar) -1, $Lo_B = $iMin_B, $Hi_B While $iMin_F < $iMax_F And $iMin_B < $iMax_B ; Toggle Arrays - Which array has most untested elements? This is the one we want to search next, ; so we can bypass more comparisons because (in theory) mismatches have a greater chance of being skipped. If $iMax_F - $iMin_F >= $iMax_B - $iMin_B Then ; $aFoo has more (or an equal number of) untested elements $Hi_F = $iMax_F $iMin_B += 1 $sFind = $aBar[$iMin_B] While $Lo_F < $Hi_F ; search $aFoo For $i = 0 To Floor(Log($Hi_F - $Lo_F) / Log(2)) $Lo_F = $iMin_F + 2^$i If $aFoo[$Lo_F] = $sFind Then $iMin_F = $Lo_F ; each match should be added to the output [perhaps an array] ConsoleWrite($sFind & " found at $aFoo[" & $Lo_F & "] = $aBar[" & $iMin_B & "]" & @LF) ExitLoop 2 ElseIf $aFoo[$Lo_F] > $sFind Then $Hi_F = $Lo_F -1 $iMin_F += Floor(2^($i -1)) $Lo_F = $iMin_F ContinueLoop 2 EndIf Next $iMin_F = $Lo_F ; minimum increment is one WEnd Else ; $aBar has more untested elements $Hi_B = $iMax_B $iMin_F += 1 $sFind = $aFoo[$iMin_F] While $Lo_B < $Hi_B ; search $aBar For $i = 0 To Floor(Log($Hi_B - $Lo_B) / Log(2)) $Lo_B = $iMin_B + 2^$i If $aBar[$Lo_B] = $sFind Then $iMin_B = $Lo_B ; each match should be added to the output [perhaps an array] ConsoleWrite($sFind & " found at $aFoo[" & $iMin_F & "] = $aBar[" & $Lo_B & "]" & @LF) ExitLoop 2 ElseIf $aBar[$Lo_B] > $sFind Then $Hi_B = $Lo_B -1 $iMin_B += Floor(2^($i -1)) $Lo_B = $iMin_B ContinueLoop 2 EndIf Next $iMin_B = $Lo_B ; minimum increment is one WEnd EndIf WEnd EndFunc ;==> ParallelExponetialSearch I hope this will be useful to someone.

      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.
      Thanks!

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

I need the modified number to be displayed.
      Thanks in advance for any assistance!

      I am working on a Video Player Test Script. I am reading a text file into a 3d array to be displayed in a GUI.
      Array Content:
      [x][0]FileName.mp4
      [x][1]UsageCount -> Up to a 4 digit number
      [x][2]EnableUsageCount (True/False)
      In the GUI the user can check the filename box, edit the number of usages and check EnableUsageCount to turn on the UsageCount control using the UsageCount number for the maximum number of plays.
      To make this easier to deal with I have removed the EnableUsageCount section, and am just concentrating on getting a method to put the edited (or unchanged) UsageCount in the array. Currently nothing is read into the array, due to my using the wrong method in the Case statement.
      Here are code snippets of what I am trying to do:
      ; Snippets from script ; I read the text file at the bottom and put the .mp4 filenames in $aManifest[x][0] and UsageCount in $aManifest[x][1] ; Then I create a GUI to display the .mp4 filenames with checkboxes and the UsageCount to the right. UsageCount is editable by the user. ; If the filename is checked, I want to read the filename into $aCheckedVideos[x][0] and the updated UsageCount in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] ; The GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) with Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED works for the checkboxes ; This section puts the filenames in the GUI with a checkbox For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sMP4Text = $aManifest[$i][0] $iMP4Length = StringLen($sMP4Text) $aVideoName[$i] = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox($sMP4Text,$iLeft, $iTop) $iTop += 30 Next ; This section reads numbers from the Manifest array, and I want to be able to change the number and have them saved. ; So the Case $GUI_CHECKED & UNCHECKED won't work here, and I can't figure out what I should be doing here. For $i = 0 to $iMMCount Step 1 $sUsageText = $aManifest[$i][1] $aUsageCount[$i] = GUICtrlCreateInput($sUsageText,$iLeft, $iTop, 50,18, $GUI_DOCKAUTO) GUICtrlSetPos($aUsageCount[$i],200) $iTop += 30 Next While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $idCloseGUI For $i = 0 To $iMMNewCount Step 1 Switch GUICtrlRead($aVideoName[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][0] = $aManifest[$i][0] ; If checked, I put the results into a two D array Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ; where Video Name is $aCheckedVideos[x][0] EndSwitch Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i]) Case $GUI_CHECKED $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i] ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1] Case $GUI_UNCHECKED ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to EndSwitch ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing. Next ExitLoop EndSwitch WEnd ;The txt file I'm reading has the following: ;~ /** Title #1: Big Buck Bunny 1080p **/ ;~ "Name": "Big Buck Bunny", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9999, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 45, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\bbb_1080_60s_enc1.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 2, ;~ /** Title #2: Tears of Steel 4K **/ ;~ "Name": "Tears of Steel 4K", ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 9876, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 0, ;~ "URI": "..\\MediaFiles\\tos_4K_60s_HEVC_enc2.mp4", ;~ "UsageCount": 5, I am certain that the section
                          Switch GUICtrlRead($aUsageCounter[$i])
                              Case $GUI_CHECKED
                                  $aCheckedVideos[$i][1] = $aUsageCount[$i]    ;I want to put the text (numbers) in $aCheckedVideos[x][1]
                              Case $GUI_UNCHECKED                                ;but what is returned is blank, probably due to
                          EndSwitch                                            ; $GUI_CHECKED being the wrong thing.

      is wrong, and this is what I am looking for help with. Instead of $GUI_CHECKED what should I be looking for?
      The worst part of this is I had this working late last night, and then lost my changes and cannot for the life of me remember how I had this working.
      Help is truly appreciated!
