Refresh GUI after ini write

Recommended Posts

RC86

Afternoon, I could very well be doing this wrong so feel free to totally advise otherwise - I'm wanting to use a GUI to first display a key from within an INI file, then secondly change the INI file by using a FileSelectFolder command but then I want to see the GUI change to reflect the change I've just made.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 192, 124)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput(Iniread(@WorkingDir & "\test.ini","Path","FilePath",""), 64, 80, 121, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change", 200, 80, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            $selectedFolder = FileSelectFolder("Select Log Path Directory",@WorkingDir,0)
            If NOT $selectedFolder = "" Then
                $newLogPath = IniWrite(@WorkingDir & "\test.ini","Path","FilePath",$selectedFolder)
            EndIf


    EndSwitch
WEnd

So 2 part question really: (1) Should I be using GUICtrlCreateInput to display my INI read from within the GUI? (2) How can I refresh the GUI to update that to read the new information I've just written to the GUI?

Thanks!

Hi.

You can use GUICtrlSetData() to set the new value. I would prefer a label rather than an input, because it wouldn't look like you can write the path with keyboard.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Local $Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 437, 192, 124)
Local $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel(Iniread(@WorkingDir & "\test.ini","Path","FilePath",""), 64, 80, 321, 21) ; LABEL instead Input
Local $Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change", 400, 80, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###
Local $nMsg, $selectedFolder, $newLogPath
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            $selectedFolder = FileSelectFolder("Select Log Path Directory",@WorkingDir,0)
            If NOT $selectedFolder = "" Then
                $newLogPath = IniWrite(@WorkingDir & "\test.ini","Path","FilePath",$selectedFolder)
                GUICtrlSetData($Input1, Iniread(@WorkingDir & "\test.ini","Path","FilePath","")) ; SET date into label
            EndIf


    EndSwitch
WEnd

      For fun, I'm building an app that opens a webpage and refreshes it every 30 seconds.
      But once the script performs _IEAction($oIE, "refresh"), the GUI closes.
      Any help is appreciated.

      Hi, i would like to know if there is a possible way to use subsections for ini files?
      For example, my ini file would look something like this:
       
      Clientname.ini
      [Info]
      Country=USA
      Type=Distributor
       
      [Costs]
      [[JAN]] <----- subsection
      cost1=----
      cost2=----
      [[FEB]]
      cost1=----
      cost2=----
       
      [Sales]
      [[JAN]] <----- subsection
      sale1=----
      sale2=----
      [[FEB]]
      sale1=----
      sale2=----
       
      [Profits]
      [[JAN]] <----- subsection
      prof1=----
      prof2=----
      [[FEB]]
      prof1=----
      prof2=----
       
      The sales would be inputed everyday by the script, and then whenever viewed, i would be using an array to view every sale/cost/profit under the subsection
       
       
      Thanks for your time!

      Hello, all..

      My AutoIT is pretty terrible - but I get by with trawling here
      I came across an issue where i had to parse a large key in a large ini file, and found that I was victim of inireadsection's limit of "Only the first 32767 chars are read for legacy reasons."
       
      I've attempted to put together some terrible code that parses an ini section.
      It's absolutely nowhere near good, but I figured I'd put it here so that folk who know what they're doing can laugh at improve it.
      $Ini = @ScriptDir & "\bigini.ini" Dim $IniArray[0][2] $KeyName = "Person" $R = FileOpen($Ini, 0) $IniStr = FileRead($R) FileClose($R) $Start = StringInStr($iniStr, "[" & $KeyName & "]") If $Start = 0 then Msgbox(16, "Error", "String not found") Exit EndIf $Stop = StringInStr($IniStr, @CRLF & "[", 0, 1, ($Start + 1)) If $Stop = 0 then $Stop = StringLen($IniStr) EndIf $String = StringMid($IniStr, $Start, ($Stop - $Start)) $Split = StringSplit($String, @CRLF, 1) $KeyCount = 0 Dim $IniArray[65535][2] For $Loop = 1 to $Split[0] $Add = "Y" $Str = $Split[$Loop] $EQBreak = StringInStr($Str, "=") Select Case StringMid($Str, 1, 1) = ";" $Add = "N" Case $EQBreak = 0 $Add = "N" Case Else $Add = "Y" EndSelect If $Add = "Y" then $KeyCount = $KeyCount + 1 $Key = StringMid($Str, 1, ($EQBreak - 1)) $Val = StringMid($Str, ($EQBreak + 1)) $IniArray[$KeyCount][0] = $Key $IniArray[$KeyCount][1] = $Val EndIf Next Redim $IniArray[$KeyCount +1][2] ; Add the number of hits to 00 to match inireadsection $IniArray[0][0] = $KeyCount _ArrayDisplay($IniArray) ; Do stuff with the Array like you would inireadsection

      I've made a program that relies on IniReadSectionNames. It reads (~3K) Autorun.inf files in the working folder and creates a GUI based on their contents.
      I made sure to revert to a default GUI upon @error.
      But someone (with Windows XP SP3 32-bit) reported to me he always gets the default menu.
      I sent him a FileRead command instead and it works! So seemingly there's no access problem to AutoRun.inf.
      In the following demo code, I always hit success, but he always ends up with semi-success:
      Local $hIniLocation = "Autorun.inf" Local $aSections = IniReadSectionNames($hIniLocation) If @error Then $aSections = FileRead($hIniLocation) if @error then msgbox(48, "Double error", "Alternative access failed too due to:" & @crlf & @error & @crlf & @extended) else msgbox(0, "Semi-success", "IniReadSectionNames failed, but alternativaly this file contains:" & @crlf & @crlf & $aSections) endif else msgbox(0, "Success", "IniReadSectionNames worked!") endif Why is that? Is there something further to check with him?

      Good morning community!
      I was working on a script which read the content of a .ini file to retrieve the file that has to open, and, based on the value of a second key stored in the .ini file, set the window on top, minimized or maximized...
      I did something like this, but seems to not work properly...
      Could anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thank you
