fileread / iniread

There are two things I need to do:

1. Read a file into an array(?) I think in order to display it in a combobox / picklist.

The file would be formatted

(ProductCode|ProductName)
(ProductCode|ProductName)
(ProductCode|ProductName)
(ProductCode|ProductName)

and ProductName would be displayed and ProductCode would be set to a variable once a choice was made.

2. Read a file into an array(?) so that each line could be used once in a command line. The format of this file would be

127.0.0.1
bubba
165.32.32.32
tally.me.banana
123.123.123.123

Any suggestions much appreciated. Examples are MOST helpful.

(end result will be a remote uninstall thingie that will probably only work for apps installed with MSI)

Look at the help file for "fileread", "stringsplit", and "filereadline. Use the first two for 1. and the third for 2.

Unless this is a clean install, you might also want to use "fileexists" to see if an older version is already installed...

I use checkboxes for my pick list as I can pick and choose to install programs as I need. I also wrote a "toggle all" button to uncheck all checkboxes if needed to pick just one or two options.
