Problem with drag & drop

Recommended Posts

MrTheDzam

Hello guys :D

I have an edit, with Drop event, using @GUI_DragFile macro. I check the extension of the input file (just allow txt and ini file), if the extension is not allowed then return an error. 

But when the error display, the edit have the location of that file. ( Example: I drag the file "Example.au3" at Desktop - which have extension is not allowed - to the Edit, the error display, and the file location "C:\User\MeowMeow\Desktop\Example.au3" string is set for the edit )

How can i eliminate the file location, which is set to edit?

Help me <3 

(P.s: the edit have some text before, so i can't use GuiCtrlSetData)

FileGetShortName returns the "8.3 short path+name of the path+name passed."

I think he is looking for _PathSplit which splits the filepath into drive, dir, filename and extension.

i'm vietnamese, so it's hard to try to describe it out -~-

 

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include "File.au3"
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 442, 192, 124, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form1Close")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_DROPPED, "DropFile")
Global $Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 104, 48, 361, 233)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func DropFile()
    Local $Dir = "", $Drive = "", $Name = "", $Extension = ""
    $Source = _PathSplit(@GUI_DragFile, $Drive, $Dir, $Name, $Extension)
    If $Source[4] <> ".txt" And $Source[4] <> ".ini" Then
        MsgBox(16 + 262144, "Message", "File not allowed!")
    Else
        GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, FileRead(@GUI_DragFile))
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func Form1Close()
    Exit
EndFunc


Example: i drag one .txt or .ini file to the GUI, which support Drag and drop. Then i drag one .au3 file to it. The error display and the problem is the location of the au3 file is printed under the content of txt (ini) file.

Thanks <3

Your edit field now has two tasks. Accept the dragged filepath and display the content.
I would split this tasks. Create a small input field where the users can drag the filepath to.
If .txt or .ini then display the file content in a second edit control.
For anything else display the error message and clear the input field.
So content and filepath no longer mix in a single control.

well, i'm developing a program like notepad, and i need space for user type in, so i don't think creating a new label is helpful in this situation :( 

anyone have any other idea? :'(

I'm talking about something like this:

You need to d&d the file to the input field. If it is a valid file then the content is displayed in the edit field.
Advantage: You always see the filepath of the file you are currently processing.

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include "File.au3"
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Global $sActiveFile = ""
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Global $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 623, 442, 192, 124, -1, BitOR($WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES,$WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE))
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "Form1Close")
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_DROPPED, "DropFile")
Global $idInput1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 104, 20, 361, 20)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DROPACCEPTED)
Global $Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 104, 48, 361, 233)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func DropFile()
    Local $Dir = "", $Drive = "", $Name = "", $Extension = ""
    $Source = _PathSplit(@GUI_DragFile, $Drive, $Dir, $Name, $Extension)
    If $Source[4] <> ".txt" And $Source[4] <> ".ini" Then
        MsgBox(16 + 262144, "Message", "File not allowed!")
        GUICtrlSetData($idInput1, $sActiveFile)
    Else
        $sActiveFile = @GUI_DragFile
        GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, FileRead(@GUI_DragFile))
    EndIf
EndFunc

Func Form1Close()
    Exit
EndFunc

Well :P you are understanding wrong what i'm asking. I'm asking how to eliminate the file location in the "idInput1" input :P

That mean (in my code) if you drag the file into the edit and the extension is not allowed, then the file location will not be set as a data of the Edit1 :D 

anyway, thanks for the answer

That's exactly what my solution does.

A wrong filepath only gets displayed in Input1 while the MsgBox is active. And the filepath of a wrong file does not get mixed with the content of a correct file in Edit1.

i'm doing what notepad can't doing: drag and drop the file into the text editing zone. and if i set the data to "" then any existing data in there will be empty ( :( )

but if i create a new input to drag & drop file into it, then the form will no longer like notepad :(

If you change the functionality (drag & drop) why not slightly change the look by adding an input field?

I use $fArray=stringsplit($string,"/\") and it returns an array. The last part of the array is always the filename.fileext. if the array unbound is 5 then $fArray[5] is what I need. Do you understand?

I read and understand you are trying to remove the file location. If your dropped file is "C:\User\MeowMeow\Desktop\Example.au3" and you want to convert it to "Example.au3" then that's what my code will do.

You have wrong idea :D anyway, thanks for help me :D

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
