How to Get Folder Path

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hi,
      I am new to Autoit, Kindly guide me. I wanted to send a message with HTTP/GET to the URL https://ghsff.it/. How to do so?
    • By tbwalker
      I'm trying to build a script that will eventually create a log with time stamps of the active windows used on a workstation throughout the day, but I'm having a problem figuring out how to actually get this information.  For example, if someone has Microsoft Word open, I'd like to be able to pop-up/log "word.exe" along with the full path to that file if at all possible (sort of like seeing the application DETAILS name in Windows Task Manager and being able to right-click on the name and choose "Open FIle Location" to get the full path to the file).
      Is what I'm asking even possible within the realm of AutoIt?  I have the below script as a test that gets me the current active window handle and title in a message box every 6 seconds, but for the life of me, I don't know what code I need to use to get the actual .EXE name/path of the active window. 
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $i = 0 Do Global $handle = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]") Global $title = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]") MsgBox(0,"Active Handle & Title",$handle & " - " & $title, 3) $i = $i + 1 Sleep(3000) Until $i = 100 Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.   I don't mind figuring out the code myself, if someone could just point me in the right direction.
       
      Thanks,

      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
