I'm in a requirement to:

  1. Open multiple files in multiple directories (not all files are .txt files, some are .ini, some without extension). Example: c:\dir\subdir\file1, c:\dir\subdir\file2.ini, c:\dir2\file3
  2. Find 5 or 6 text strings in above files, string may contain special characters (Ex: %hostname%_a1234)
  3. Replace them with new string values
  4. Take backup of old files and save the updated files.

I've tried few scripts and couldn't get the solution.

Appreciate if anybody could help me to achieve this script.

Thanks in advance.

Do any of the locations have anything in common?  Is it every single file in the directory c:\dir?

Do the strings youre trying to find have anything in common?

      Hi, I have 5 notepad files with lot of data in each of it. The data are arranged in lines and i wish to get it pasted/copied into excel.  Say, i need to read notepad1 and paste the contents into sheet1 of excel and notepad2 to sheet2 and so on.  If i read the notepad and paste it line by line, it is taking lot of time.  Is there a way by which i can paste the whole of notepad file into excel sheet(and get it pasted line by line as shown in the attached excel), instead of using code to write it line by line?.. I was using Filewriteline(data, line i) initially to write to excel.  The 'i' value was incremented with for loop and the excel was updated, but this takes lot of time.  The expected excel format is attached here.  any help is appreciated.  thanks

      Hi, I'm sure that this is a simple question regarding webdriver udf but my search on the forum did not result in the exact same scenario that I need. I will adapt it to my corporate needs but at first I want it to work with an example everybody can reproduce if needed.
      I navigate to https://www.daysoftheyear.com/ and want to find out what special day today is. Using the following Code returns the wanted text that today is 'shark awareness day' in the console but it is not pasted in notepad as it is not copied as it probably should be.
      #include "wd_core.au3" #include "wd_helper.au3" Local $sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession, $sID _WD_Option("Driver", "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\chromedriver.exe") _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"') $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true }}}}' _WD_Startup() $sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://www.daysoftheyear.com/?timezone_offset=nan") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Sleep(3000) Local $sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "/html/body/div[2]/header/div/div[1]/div/div[2]/h3/a") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'text') ClipGet() Run("notepad.exe") Sleep(500) Send("^v") Scite returns this, therefore the text has been found but the last mile to paste it to notepad or excel does not work for me.
      __WD_Get: URL=HTTP://127.0.0.1:9515/session/b72166b774d7fefb258b3721fc1d4306/element/657e6b5d-31a9-46a8-85c4-acb7f72bf659/text __WD_Get: StatusCode=200; $iResult = 0; $sResponseText={"value":"Shark Awareness Day"}... _WD_ElementAction: {"value":"Shark Awareness Day"}... Thanks in advance!

      I would like to create an auto login program using mouseclicks, controlclicks only, or whatever is required to send characters from Windows 10 On-Screen Keyboard to a User/Password login form. I thought I would start with OSK to NotePad. Using mouseclicks to enter ID/Password seems more secure than typing plain text. Seems like if I can get that to work I should be able to send the characters to any login form. I have tried many things but cannot send a character(s) from OSK to Notepad. Of course manually works great. Here is some code I have tried:
      ControlGetFocus ("Untitled - Notepad")
          ; go to Notepad window
          MouseMove(649, 206 , 0)  ;move to Notepad, then click below
          Sleep (1000)
          MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT,"left")
          ControlGetFocus ("On-Screen Keyboard")
          ; go to OSK window then click on a character key
          MouseMove(642, 807 , 0) ;letter - t
          Sleep (1000)
          MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT,"left")
      OR
      ControlClick("On-Screen Keyboard","","[CLASS:OSKMainClass]","left","",642, 807)
      The above move to the correct position and appear to click but focus is lost to Notepad. Any help would be appreciated.

      Run("notepad.exe") GLOBAL $One = ('Line1' & _ 'Line2' & _ 'Line3' & _ 'Line4' & _ 'Line5') ClipPut($One) $Notepad = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10) ControlSend("Untitled - Notepad", "", "", ("^v")) Instead of having this paste as Line1Line2Line3Line4Line5
      How can I make it paste it into notepad as (without double spacing.)
      Line1
      Line2
      Line3
      Line4
      Line5
