Download and read file help

First script here. Thanks for taking the time.

I want to download a file from my dropbox or other cloud file host and I want autoit to read the file and proceed.

Here are the references I've gone through, it's just I'm not familiar yet with autoit so I'm looking for advice:
https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/InetGet.htm

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/FileRead.htm

 

How would I start out downloading a text file from dropbox and if in the file there is a 1 then it will proceed with the rest of the script if there is a 0 or if the file cannot be downloaded I want it to just end.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I apologize in advance if this seems very trivial for some but this is my first script and I'm hoping this is the correct place to ask this question.

Hello swatsapkraz,

What you want to do can be translated to search for "1" in the file and proceed if found, otherwise do nothing (searching for 0 is not needed if 1 is not found).

I created 2 dropbox links, the first one links to a file which contains 1 and the other do not:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/c27k3gv5oanhjvc/file_to_proceed.txt?dl=1

https://www.dropbox.com/s/g76mnemzg2lai4z/file_to_NOT_proceed.txt?dl=1

Use the following code to download the above files (change $file_url with the link you want to test) and check if they need to be proceeded or not:

#include <File.au3>

$file_url = "https://www.dropbox.com/s/g76mnemzg2lai4z/file_to_NOT_proceed.txt?dl=1"

;downloading the file

$download_result = InetGet($file_url, @scriptdir & "\downloaded_file.txt", 3)

if $download_result <> 0 Then ;if the download worked

   ;checking if there is 1 or 0 inside the file

   $file_content = ""

   _FileReadToArray(@scriptdir & "\downloaded_file.txt", $file_content)

        if IsArray($file_content) then ;if the file is not empty we search inside for 1

            $search_for_number_one = _ArraySearch($file_content, "1", "", "", "", 1)

            if $search_for_number_one <> -1 then ; the number 1 has been found inside the file so it must be proceeded

                msgbox("","","file contains 1 and must be proceeded")

            else

                msgbox("","","file does NOT contain 1 and must NOT be proceeded")

            EndIf

        EndIf

endif

Enjoy :)

Like this ?:

Global $inetFile = 'https://www.dropbox.com/s/c27k3gv5oanhjvc/file_to_proceed.txt?dl=1'
Global $localFile = @ScriptDir & "\file_to_proceed.txt"

ConsoleWrite("Download File: " & $inetFile & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("Save to: " & $localFile & @CRLF)
Global $dlResult = InetGet($inetFile, $localFile, 3) ? "OK" : "Failed" ; Download file
Global $iError = @error, $iKey = "1"
ConsoleWrite("Download result: " & ($dlResult) & " - Error=" & $iError & @CRLF)
If ($dlResult <> "OK") Then Exit MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "Download file Error: " & $iError & @CRLF & "Link: " & $inetFile)

Global $sFileContent = FileRead($localFile) ;read file to var
If StringInStr($sFileContent, $iKey) Then ; check key
    MsgBox(32, @ScriptName, "OK - Do somethink here") ; OK
Else
    MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "ERROR - " & $iKey & " is not found")
EndIf

 

Saludos

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
