First find text, Then do this

Recommended Posts

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

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

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!

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that allow me to list all currently installed software on a computer but some of the are listed in the HKLM64 hive of the registry whereas 95% of all others are in the HKLM "normal" one.
      Thing is, I'd like to combine these two reg key into one single ListView item.
      Here's my code so far, knowing that it's working on both cases (changing to HKLM64 or HKLM short)
      Thanks in advance for the help

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
