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

Recommended Posts

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.

      There is a _ArrayToString() but no _ArrayFromString().  ( searched in the forum and google )
      The example is based on the _ArrayToString() help file, to show the reconstruction of the array.

      I've encountered a problem with a single file where I cannot retrieve it's Date-time. So far my code has worked well for over 30 files, but this one is a mystery I cannot debug myself due to insufficient Au3 knowledge.
      In line 11 "_Date_Time_FileTimeToArray" is called and for this particular file it sets the @error to 10. I don't know what that error code means, but it's not set by the _Date functions themselves I think.
      Overall, it could be a problem caused by any of the functions below, how can I properly debug this? / Does anybody know a what's causing this?
      _WinAPI_CreateFile() / _Date_Time_GetFileTime() / _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray()
      Func _SetFileTimes($sFilePath) Local $monthNumber[13] = ["", "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "Juny", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"] Local $dayNumber[7] = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"] Local $fHandle = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFilePath, 2, 2) ; read-only ; may NOT return a valid date for some reason! TODO Local $fTagFILETIME = _Date_Time_GetFileTime($fHandle) _WinAPI_CloseHandle($fHandle) ; This will return an empty array if theres no valid date $fModTime = _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray($fTagFILETIME[2]) ; last Modified if @error <> 10 then Local $year = $fModTime[2] Local $month = $fModTime[0] Local $day = $fModTime[1] Local $hour = $fModTime[3] Local $min = $fModTime[4] Local $sec = $fModTime[5] Local $ms = $fModTime[6] Local $weekday = $fModTime[7] Global $prettyTimestamp = StringFormat("%s, %s %d, %04d %02d:%02d:%02d", $dayNumber[$weekday], $monthNumber[$month], $day, $year, $hour, $min, $sec) Global $uploadDate = StringFormat("%04d-%02d-%02d", $year, $month, $day) $fModTime = _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray(_Date_Time_FileTimeToLocalFileTime($fTagFILETIME[2])) ; last Modified Local $year = $fModTime[2] Local $month = $fModTime[0] Local $day = $fModTime[1] Local $hour = $fModTime[3] Local $min = $fModTime[4] Local $sec = $fModTime[5] Local $ms = $fModTime[6] Local $weekday = $fModTime[7] ; GetUnixTime accounts for Local time, hence feed it local time Global $unixTimestamp = _GetUnixTime($year &"/"& $month &"/"& $day &" "& $hour&":"& $min &":"& $sec) else Global $prettyTimestamp = "N/A" Global $uploadDate = "" Global $unixTimestamp = "N/A" endif endfunc  
      _GetUnixTime returned the year 1601 start date, showing that $fModTime is probably equal 0. (But Why?)
      The file reports these dates in Explorer, it's on local NTFS drive:

      Hi,
      I have this piece code that works with Excel file and finds the column name where is a specific named range located.
      Local $Column = Null $Column = _Excel_ColumnToLetter($oWorkbook.Sheets("MySheetName").Range("MyRangeName").Column) If @error Then $Column = Null SetError(0) Else ;Proceed... EndIf It works properly if the named range exists in the Excel file, I do get the column name and the "Proceed" part is correctly executed. If the named range is not present in the Excel file, I would expect the If @error part to set the variable to Null and then follow with the rest of the function after EndIf. Instead, the script stops and I get this error:
      "C:\test\script_021.au3" (1184) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: $Column = _Excel_ColumnToLetter($oWorkbook.Sheets("MySheetName").Range("MyRangeName").Column) $Column = _Excel_ColumnToLetter($oWorkbook.Sheets("MySheetName")^ ERROR What am I doing wrong here? Is it possible that failure to set the variable doesn't set the @error? Push in the right direction would be much appreciated. Thanks!

      for my test i'm looking for 100,200,300,400,500
      and if any of those excits i want to pop a msgbox with the number in the section.
      i can in my example find one, but it does not check everyone. why?  what am i missing?
