How to select a folder and assign the path value to a variable in autoit?

 

; Selecting a file and assigning that to $sPath value)
Case $file
            $sPath = FileOpenDialog("Open a file", @desktopdir, "Cabinet Files (*.cab)",$FD_MULTISELECT)
            GUICtrlSetData($file, $sPath)

; How to do the same with a folder?
      Case $folder
         $sPath = FileSelectFolder($sPath, "")

Need the selected folder path to be used in the $sPath section for further implementation.
Or a method to Select Folder or Files at once.

Shadow_Delta,

Or a method to Select Folder or Files at once

Take a look at my ChooseFileFolder UDF (the link is in my sig) which allows you to select both files and folders at the same time in a single dialog.

      i have a script that selects  a text file and deletes a line (text input required) in the text file selected
      i have to make it remove all lines found on a file i name, toRemoveLines.txt
      it has to remove lines from all text files found in a folder
      this is the script that has to be modified
      where it says "select file" it has to be "select folder"
      where it says "line text input" it has to be all lines from a text file
      #Include <File.au3> Global $success = False $file_name = FileOpenDialog("Select file", @ScriptDir, "All files (*.*)", 1+4) $line_text_input = InputBox("Line's text", "Line must contain following text:", "line contains this text") $file_count_lines = _FileCountLines($file_name) for $i = 0 to $file_count_lines $Lines_text_output = FileReadLine($file_name, $i) if StringInStr($Lines_text_output, $line_text_input) then _FileWriteToLine($file_name, $i, "", 1) $success = True ExitLoop EndIf Next if $success = True Then MsgBox(0, "Success", "Line has been deleted") Else MsgBox(0, "Failure", "Line wasn't found") EndIf

      I'm trying to get data from http://poe.trade/ - disclaimer, although this site is about a game, my script will not in any way interact directly with the game in any way. The script is just to get data from the site.
      To explain how it works - you submit a POST request and a custom URL is returned, then you do a GET request on that URL and you get the final URL you want.
       
      First issue:
      Now, I've tried doing so by using https://apitester.com/ and the first phase works. Here's how it looks like at APITester:
      Request Headers POST /search HTTP/1.1 Host: poe.trade Accept: */* User-Agent: Rigor API Tester Content-Length: 43 Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Request Body online=x&name=kaom%27s%20heart&league=incursion When I submit this, the response I get is this:
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN"> <title>Redirecting...</title> <h1>Redirecting...</h1> <p>You should be redirected automatically to target URL: <a href="http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme">http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme</a>. If not click the link. So I then do a GET request for 'http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme', which results in this response:
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN"> <title>Redirecting...</title> <h1>Redirecting...</h1> <p>You should be redirected automatically to target URL: <a href="http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito">http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito</a>. If not click the link. Great, this link (http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito) is exactly what we want.
      However, when I try to do the same in autoit, the result is quite different:
      Global Const $HTTP_STATUS_OK = 200 $test = HttpPost("http://poe.trade/search", "/online=x&name=kaom%27s%20heart&league=incursion") ClipPut($test) MsgBox(1, "", $test) Func HttpPost($sURL, $sData = "") Local $oHTTP = ObjCreate("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("POST", $sURL, False) If (@error) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Host", "poe.trade") $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("User-Agent", "Rigor API Tester") $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Accept", "*/*") $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded") $oHTTP.Send($sData) If (@error) Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0) If ($oHTTP.Status <> $HTTP_STATUS_OK) Then Return SetError(3, 0, 0) Return SetError(0, 0, $oHTTP.ResponseText) EndFunc The code above returns: ' 謟 '
      Any ideas as to what I am doing incorrectly?
       
      Second issue:
      Once I get the final link using APITester and do a GET on that i get a bunch of hieroglyphs. A friend of mine advised that the data is GZiped, which is a pain in the butt to be honest. However, apparently curl can uncompres that.
      How would I go about it?
       
      Thanks

      Hello
      I have a query please
      It is about windows file explorer
      If i design a tool in autoit language to delete files for example
      and i  added it in the context menu in File Explorer
      If i right-click on any file And you choose the tool, it will be get the path of the selected file or folder
      The problem here is
      If i select a set of files or folders
      it only detect the first one
      The code that i  used is
      if $CMDLine[0] = 0 then
      msgBox(16, "error", "you don't selecte any files")
      exit
      else
      for $i = 1 to $CMDLine[0]
      msgBox(0, "files", $CMDLine[$i]
      next
      endIf
      exit

      Files Checklist
      Just a simple little (complex enough) program I whipped up, for a purpose ... but only too happy to share.
      It can of course be modified to do more, but at the moment just compares file names with or without path ... Location versus Checklist.
      There are of course other compare programs out there, most doing a lot more than mine (i.e. WinMerge or FileComparer). But I wanted something quick and simple with drag & drop, that uses up a smallish amount of screen real estate.
      NOTE - The SAVE button is also a LOAD one, and displays 'Load' when the list is empty. So you can save and load specific lists. While in SAVE mode, the button can also be used with CTRL held down, to ADD another list to existing (displayed one) ... combining as they say ... though not saved until you SAVE. CLEAR button removes a selected entry, or if used with CTRL held down, queries about removing all listed entries.
              
      Files Checklist v1.2.zip
      Files Checklist v1.3.zip
      Files Checklist v1.4.zip  (Includes a BUGFIX.)
        (source included)
      WARNING - While this program does not act on files or folders ADDED or CHECKED, you might act on the results, so I advise caution, and I also recommend using the new 'Relative' option in v1.3 or newer ... but you still need to understand what you are doing and what the results actually mean. Some basic examples in the next post.
      Enjoy!
