Download a variable link

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, 

Following this page:

http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html

I have to download the BIOS for the E5440 model. As I don't know in which order Dell will place the description and the link to download the file (also because the 5440 can be put in first) I'd like to make  the following piece of code to search only first the link that deals with the E5440:

(The only thing I'm sure is that the string E5440 will be either in the first or the second position and I need to download the corresponding link)

Local $sRead = InetRead('http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html', 1)
ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString($sRead) & @CRLF)
Local $aData = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Type: BIOS', 'Category:')

TrayTip("", "Downloading latest BIOS Version, please wait...", 10, 3)

Local $aLinks = _StringBetween($aData[0], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')

For $i = 0 To UBound($aLinks) - 1
    $aLinks[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $aLinks[$i]
Next

Local $hDownload = InetGet($aLinks[0], @DesktopDir & "\BIOSE5450.exe", $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND)
 Do
        Sleep(250)
    Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADCOMPLETE)
Local $iBytesSize = InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADREAD)
    Local $iFileSize = Round(FileGetSize(@DesktopDir & "\BIOSE5450.exe") / 1048576)
InetClose($hDownload)


MsgBox(0, "",  "The latest E5450 BIOS (" & $iFileSize & " MB) have been downloaded")

2016-02-15_11-40-52.thumb.png.9b950b28c6

I was thinking of an string search in the array but all my attempts failed for now.

Can someone could give me a hand over here.

But, there's is something I can't figure out, here's my current code:

I can't understand why the last one is not working as only the variable and what to find has changed... and of course, I double check that what I want to fond for the latest is present on the page. (when I inspect it or if I switch to the page source)

Could you, please help again? Thanks ;)

Hmm this looks like a great confusion between declaring an array, walking through an array [$i] and selecting the first element of an array [0]
Please try this one and guess what  :)

Edit
BTW be careful with the syntax, $a... is for arrays, $s... for strings, and $b... for booleans

mikell, 

For my defense, and I don't know why, I never got used to that... Despite I read help file or so, I don't know, my mind seems to put that away... 

Anyway... Thanks for the tip, for sure this is now working as expected and I can finalize my work.

Regarding the syntax, I know a for arrays, b for booleans, etc... that was just for my not to get lost with all these arrays... :) 

But a good thing is that now, I understand them a bit better :)

Have a great day.

      Howdy, this is my first post, massive fan of autoit. 
      I've searched and tried and I would just like people who are better at this than me to let me know if this is even a thing.

      I'd like to perform just a variable. For example, it would be. *see inserted code*
      So what i'm wanting is, create the constant $test, and that variable would be what is followed after the = . Then perform the _FileCreate. Then perform the variable.  Logically or in my head rather.. That variable is declared and is equal to what it is set to above, therefore just placing the variable plainly in the script, it should be equal to what it was declared as.  So what am I doing wrong, and or how can I have autoit just perform the variable.  

       
      #include <File.au3> Const $test = FileWriteLine(@DesktopDir & "\Log.txt", @CRLF ) _FileCreate(@DesktopDir & "\Log.txt") $test

      I have a script , during compilation and test execution, it worked perfectly but sometimes I am getting error as "Variable used without being declared."
       
      I understood somewhere in the branching logic this is happening.
       
      But not able to find it exactly.
       
      As I am using multiple include statements.the line number is also not giving accurately.
       

       
      Can anyone suggest what is the approach to resolve this?

      Haven't had much time to code recently. However the following thread inspired me.
      The debate about linear, parallel and binary search methods was rather interesting and, in an attempt to be diplomatic, I decided to combine @jchd's suggestion with @LarsJ's binary search example. I decided that the binary search algorithm required modification to make it more linear. As usual, 'if you invent something, it probably already exists and if it already exists, it exists for a reason'. My first attempt was not all that good. The code worked but was really a mess. I blame peer pressure (to post an example of a parallel search method).  I will delete that old code in due course.
      With a little memory jogging and a glance at the help file, the solution turned out to be quite easy: I just needed a better understanding of Euler. Further modification will be needed to work with more complicated unicode strings. The output could be returned as an array or a delimitered string. I'm not so interested in those details. I'm just going to post the algorithm for now and anyone, who wants to, can modify it to suit their needs. Both arrays must contain at least 1 element.
      Local $aFoo = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,19,20,23,24,26,30,35,39,40,41] Local $aBar = [0,1,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,21,24,25,26,27,34,35,38,40] ParallelExponetialSearch($aFoo, $aBar) ; Compares two lists - returning positive matches. Each input array must be unique (individually) and in alphabetical order.

This is the one we want to search next, ; so we can bypass more comparisons because (in theory) mismatches have a greater chance of being skipped.

      Afternoon!
      I have a requirement to return both a string and an array from a function so as a result I put them both into an array and returned that.  I can access them in their entirety after returning them but then I can't seem to access the array elements after this.  Should I be able to or is there a prettier way?
      #include <Array.au3> ;Memory info returned as a string and an array $memoryInfo = _getMemoryInfo() msgbox(0,"Memory Info",$memoryInfo[0]) _ArrayDisplay($memoryInfo[1],"Memory as an Array") Local $newArray[7] $memoryInfo[1] = $newArray msgbox(0,"Test element",$newArray[0]) _ArrayDisplay($newArray) Func _getMemoryInfo() Local $newArray[7] Local $array = MemGetStats() $newArray[0] = $array[0] ;% of memory in use $newArray[1] = Round($array[1]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total physical RAM $newArray[2] = Round($array[2]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Availaible physical RAM $newArray[3] = Round($array[3]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total pagefile $newArray[4] = Round($array[4]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available pagefile $newArray[5] = Round($array[5]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Total virtual $newArray[6] = Round($array[6]/1024 * 0.001,2) ;Available virtual $memoryUsage = $newArray[1] - $newarray[2] $pagefileUsage = $newArray[3] - $newarray[4] ;Output/Return Local $returnArray[2] $returnArray[0] = "Memory: " & $memoryUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[1] & " GB " & @CRLF & "Pagefile: " & $pagefileUsage & " GB/" & $newArray[3] & " GB " $returnArray[1] = $newArray return $returnArray EndFunc A bit messy but hopefully it's understandable what I'm trying to achieve.

      I am having difficulties getting updated results from GUICtrlCreateInput. I wrote a small script to demonstrate what I am trying to do.
      This script reads a text file into an array and displays the Name and Number from the text file.
      The user can check a name and change the number, and the results are displayed in _ArrayDisplay.
      Only the Checked names are displayed in their original position. This is necessary for future
      plumbing.
      The problem with this script is the original number is returned, not the changed number. I cannot
      figure out how to get the updated number to be displayed.

If you want to try this out put the NameNumber.txt file in your script directory. It's attached to the post.
      * This is a dummy file with a Name and Number * The only purpose of this file is to read the updated Number. Name:Taggart Number:916 Name:Mongo Number:90 Name:Hedley Lamarr Number:22 Name:Bart Number:9999 Name:The Waco Kid Number:2244 If I change the number, the original number is displayed at the end, not the updated/modified number. I need the modified number to be displayed.
      Thanks in advance for any assistance!
