Is it a Good Idea?: @error when key is not found in IniRead

30 posts in this topic

Hello :), I was thinking of a situation where a key in a ini file can contain anything, If we were to know if the key does not exists using IniRead, Its not possible to do it without compromising a single possibility... I was thinking that if IniRead were to set @error when a key does not exist, it solves the problem which I mentioned before :D

 

What do you think? Would you like this feature?

The way IniRead works, if the key doesn't exist, then the default value is given. If the key exists but is blank the return value is an empty string. I think that using the Default Value as the check to see if the key exists should probably be sufficient.

But it wouldn't hurt to set @error to non-zero! :P

Isn't the non-existence of the key an error itself? :wacko:

This is the way I see this - if I'm wrong then someone will most likely correct me. If a program starts and no ini file is found, then default settings are applied. As soon as you change some default settings, an ini file is created with the new default settings. Not all keys are necessarily included. Using ini files for different purposes is possible, but this is beyond the specifications as far as I'm aware.

@czardas I agree :yes:, but we can use @extended as a indicator... or I can make a function to check if the key exists :P

Sure you could make this. I would set the default return value* to something strange and highly unlikely - a private range Unicode character would probably be a good choice. Or you could use a combination of strange characters if you are overly paranoid. Otherwise parse the file, but that's more complicated and probably slower. :)

* using the native function and checking the result: ==> one of several possible methods.

I'd use this pseudo code...

Func _IniRead($File, $Section, $Key, $Default)
    Local $Return = IniRead($File, $Section, $Key, $Default)
    If $Return = $Default Then
        If Not _IniKeyExists($File, $Key) Then
            Return SetError(1, 0, $Return)
        EndIf
    EndIf
    Return $Return
EndFunc

Func _IniKeyExists($File, $Key)
    ;Logic
EndFunc

TheDcoder,

without taking anything away from the perfect explanation by czardas, what benefit is there to you to know if a key exists or not? (other than the urge of being in total control over your program functionality, of course)

 

guinness,

the ini format, being as simple as can be, is still the best choice for some types of data storing - initial conditions of a program, to name one. besides, i don't recall MS publishing a death certificate for the ini specification... what MS do say, for example here, is that:

"This function is provided only for compatibility with 16-bit Windows-based applications. Applications should store initialization information in the registry."

- which is an utter crap. sorry, but i can't find a more appropriate description. the place where an app should store its initial conditions is determined entirely by the nature of the app, not by any MS whim. i sure hope you do not follow that recommendation if you happen to design an app that needs its initial conditions in an ini file.

XML, JSON, SQLite database, these are just a few of the better forms for storing data (configuration). Ini files are limited, hence why Microsoft used the registry. If I design an app these days, I use either JSON or XML for configuration storage.

XML and JSON, yes...good for initial settings files even if a bit of an overkill for it.

SQLite database, way overkill if all you need it for is just to store some settings. Way too much overhead for something so trivial as that. Even if it would be a good way of doing it, who would want to go and learn how to use it just to store some settings when the INI format has been around for decades? It still performs the function it was designed for, even if it doesn't have Unicode support natively.

      @JLogan3o13 I apologize, I did not think of it that way.  I have attached all the code and the Ini File information.  Please let me know if I need to add anything else to help understand what is happening.  thank you.
       
       
       
      Guys, I apologize in advance as I did not search for my answer before posting.  I just could not figure out a way to search that made since so I decided to go ahead and post my question.
       
      Getting to it.
      Background: this is being used to validate file names before moving to a new location.  though i have not included all the code, below is what i am having a problem with.
       I have an ini file that i am reading values from. Func ConfigDefineVars() -- I read the value of $ValidationRDA and everything is good then I set 
      $CaseRDALocationCheck = '$SplitFile[$ValidationRDALocation]' <> $ValidationRDA
      the code that will be used in the select case in Func FileSplitCount().  The problem i have is that even though the numbers = each other they are not recognizing as =.  
      This is what i am getting in my log file i create.
      2017-12-04 14:09:53 : RDA was 2403 should have been 2403:
      If I move $SplitFile[$ValidationRDALocation] <> $ValidationRDA to the Case line under the function it works correctly.
       
      I think this has to do with my use of ' ' around the '$SplitFile[$ValidationRDALocation]' but  i don't know what option i have in Func ConfigDefineVars I am not ready to define $SplitFile.  I have tried adding it to my Global Vars at the top of my script but that did not seem to help.
      There will be more fail this is just the first one in the select case.
       
      Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
       
      thanks,
      Damon

      Hi all,
      Bit of a fun one with querying WMI objects and setting errors within a function.  Below is example code that I've used from JSThePatriot previous UDFs but the example would apply to many other scenarios.  Basically the SetError should be called if $colItems is not an object as a result of the WMI query.  This is then used to create a corresponding error message.
      I've tried disabling WMIC thus forcing it to not be an object, but rather than catching the error and telling me about it, the code simply fails therefore surely making the purpose of the logging useless??  I've experienced this before but in other languages such as java i would use a try catch etc and get around this....any suggestions for its use in AutoIT?

      Thanks

      Hello, I recently opened a bug report without reading the Helpfile... My bad . After @Melba23's gentle reminder, I was curious about why it was like that.
      It is about SetError's behaviour. This is the example from the bug report:
      Example() If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Error" & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("No Error" & @CRLF) EndIf Func Example() SetError(1) Sleep(1000) EndFunc What I tried to do is set Example's (my user defined function's) @error value to 1... but the value set by SetError is cleared after calling a function, I wonder why? Why should calling to an external function effect my function's @error which is set when my function returns.
      Setting the error of a UDF in advance by using SetError makes sense... but I cannot find a reason why calling a function should clear it? Please note that I am not talking about @error, I am talking about the @error set by my function when it ends/returns!
      I hope someone can enlighten me, thanks for the answers in advance!
      P.S I tried to explain my best but my English is not very good and I didn't feel like I did a good job explaining today, so please pardon any mistakes that I have made

      Hi I am trying to read multiple sections from an ini file into an array and use the result to calculate how many records there are from the suppliers and this devided into the status records that belong to it. The problem I am having; I am able to use Ubound to calculate how many record there are in total to the option chosen from the combo box, but where I am getting stuck is the part to link the status and leverancier to each other and count them.
      Hope some one can help me.
      My code right now:
      #include <ComboConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <file.au3> #include <array.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 569, 253) $LEVCOMBO = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 184, 112, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $WS_VSCROLL)) Global $aSections = IniReadSectionNames(@ScriptDir & "\leveranciers.ini") If (Not @Error) Then GUICtrlSetData($LEVCOMBO, _ArraytoString($aSections, "|", 1), $aSections[1]) $LABEL = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Totaal aantal RMA aanvragen: ", 48, 200, 250, 21) $TOTALCOUNT = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 200, 200, 100, 21) $LABEL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Aantal aangevraagd: ", 48, 225, 250, 21) $TOTALAANGEVRAAGD = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 200, 225, 100, 21) $LABEL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Aantal verzonden: ", 48, 250, 250, 21) $TOTALVERZONDEN = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 200, 250, 100, 21) $LABEL4 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Aantal afgehandeld: ", 48, 275, 250, 21) $TOTALAFGEHANDELD = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 200, 275, 100, 21) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $LEVCOMBO COMBO() EndSwitch WEnd Func COMBO() Local $hINI_FILENAME = @ScriptDir & "\ini.ini" $READAANGEVRAAGDRMA = IniReadSection($hINI_FILENAME, 'LEVERANCIER') $READSTATUS = IniReadSection($hINI_FILENAME, 'STATUS') $VAR = GUICtrlRead($LEVCOMBO) $READAANGEVRAAGDRMACOUNT = _ArrayFindAll($READAANGEVRAAGDRMA, $VAR, Default, Default, Default, Default, 1) GUICtrlSetData($TOTALCOUNT,UBound($READAANGEVRAAGDRMACOUNT)) $nb = $READAANGEVRAAGDRMA[0][0] Local $res[$nb+1][3] $res[0][0] = $nb For $i = 1 to $nb $res[$i][0] = $READAANGEVRAAGDRMA[$i][1] $res[$i][1] = $READSTATUS[$i][1] Next _ArrayDisplay($res) EndFunc And the ini files that goes with it:

      Hello!
      After a long time, I bring you yet another IIAGI topic . Today its about indicating(?) arrays... here is a visual example:
      "This is an example for a string" 1337 ; An integer 13.37 ; Integer ["This", "is", "an", "example", "for", "an", "array"] ; All work except the Array's example :( All the examples (each separated by a line) can be passed to a function or a variable without the help of a variable except the array example... That shouldn't be like that! We can use the way (which I just demonstrated above) in many ways, here is one way I can think of now:
      Local $aInitialArray = [1, 2, 3] _ArrayConcatenate($aInitialArray, [4, 5, 6])  
      I would love to see this implemented ... I honestly don't see reason for this NOT to be implemented .
