To select & copy a line from notepad

3 posts in this topic

Cheers to AutoIT and all forum members!!

I'm a newbie so pls help me...

I want to select & copy-paste one line at a time from notepad.So my problem is:

1)How do i select(highlight) only some specific txt from a document? ( I beleive here i'll hav to specify some criteria(character) to start selection and another criteria(char) to end selection.How do i do this? )

2)How do i maintain a 'line count' or some method to determine my current position in the text document?

I'm new to scripting(2days B) ) but familiar with programming(C/C++)

Any help on this wud b appreciated..thanx in advance :o

Welcome to the forums!

It would be much easier to have AutoIt copy and paste one line at a time from a text file without it being open in Notepad -- would this also be alright? What exactly do you want to achieve?

Using this approach it would not be necessary to maintain a line count either since AutoIt would do this internally.

P.S. You may find that your thread is moved to the Support forum soon. Please post any future questions there. B)
