Help with only listing first 10 files in a array from a folder

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hi All, 

 

I am fairly new to AutoIT and I am still trying to learn, I have been using _FileListToArray to list all the files with a particular extension in an array and then loop through it for operation  (   For $i = 1 To UBound($FileArray) - 1).
So far this has been working fine. But I am not able to figure out a problem that I have; what if I have 50 files but I only want to loop through first 10 files and then next ten and so on?  Or rather I should say, how I can I only feed max 10 files to the array at a time when I do _FileListToArray regardless of the total number of files in the folder?

Any insight/help will be much appreciated

You could write your own function. Use FileFindFirstFile to set up retrieving the file list and then use FileFindNextFile 10 times to read the first 10 files and so on.

      My esteemed Autoits I need your help once again.
      I'm trying to figure out how to create a loop that gets 1 value from an array and repeats until each value from the array has been used. I have never used arrays before and I know once I learn more things should get easier for me. 
      Here is what Im trying to do:
      -Have an array of values that determine what application i log into. ex: app1, app2, app3, app4 etc.
      -Have a loop that repeats a process sequentially using each value in the array to finish the process for each app1, app2, app 3 and so forth. I have 30 apps that I need to update on a regular basis and getting this sorted out is what I perceive to be the best way to do it.
      Here is my feeble attempt that obviously fails:
      #include <msgboxconstants.au3>
      #include <Constants.au3>
      #include <array.au3>
      Login()
      Func Login()
          local $array[30] = ["10", "11", "12",etc etc]
          ;;Local $site = InputBox("ERx Site","What site do you want to login as?","","")
          Local $userid = InputBox("ERx Login", "What is your username?", "", "")
          Local $Passwd = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your UAT password.", "", "*")
      for $1 = 1 to 30(I need to do the same steps in 30 different apps)
      run("Z:launch.exe")
      WinWaitActive("Input")
      Send (Sequential ARRAY VALUE HERE)
      Send("{ENTER}")
      WinWaitActive("window")
      Send($userid)
      Send("{TAB}")
      send($Passwd)
      Send("{ENTER}")
      WinWaitActive("[CLASS:SunAwtDialog]")
      Sleep(500)
      WinClose("Home Page")
      Next
      EndFunc
       
      your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks for your time

      I'm trying to get an array from a website so that I can just get the url, but I am not sure how. I read a bit of arrays but I have a feeling I'd have to be writing a lot more than what I should be. I will include the script I have so far and the API url for what I want.
       
      API: https://api.fast.com/netflix/speedtest?https=true&token=YXNkZmFzZGxmbnNkYWZoYXNkZmhrYWxm&urlCount=1 (I want the 'url' array that contains the url)
       
      Code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Inet.au3> #include <Array.au3> $site = _INetGetSource('http://api.fast.com/netflix/speedtest?https=true&token=YXNkZmFzZGxmbnNkYWZoYXNkZmhrYWxm&urlCount=1') MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", $site[1])

      How can you get the downloads folder in AutoIT?
      As far as i know there isn't a macro for it right? like @Downloads or something?
      The ugly solution would be typing in the whole path but what if the user has chosen another location?
      Need to clear that folder regularly on my work and on different accounts..

      We can get a list of file using the below code.
      Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray(@DesktopDir, "*") Is there any option to use the above one recursively to get sub folders and their contents also.??
      And also, is there any way to serialize the above array locally to some file and load it later when we want in another program on another machine so that we can compare its contents with a folder in different machine, which is not network connected also.?
